Summary This award-winning 1 hr documentary honors the role of kupuna (elders) in preserving Hawaiian culture. It focuses on the legacies of 3 respected Hawaiian elders whose lives bridged the transition from older times into the late 20th century. They are Ruth Makaila Kaholoa'a; Lilia Wahinemaika'i Hale; and Reverend David "Kawika" Ka'alakea. Each is a living archive whose memories and perspectives need to be shared as a way of bringing the healing wisdom of the past into the often fragmented world of the present
