This film showcases Hawaii in such a beautiful, powerful, and informative light! It not only covers the issues that we sometimes face as human beings, but also the serious issues that Hawaiians and specifically the Island of Maui had to endure. To me, Kuleana means more than just responsibility. As a Hawaiian, I don't know own the land, I belong to it. It is my Kuleana to be a guardian of these lands. It's time for our stories to be told. I highly recommend this incredible film.
