The town of Makawao in upcountry Maui has a deeply colorful history. From a flourishing Native Hawai‘ian presence to early missionaries and immigrant labor; to cattle ranches, plantations, WWII, and rodeos, Makawao’s story is a fascinating reflection of the diversity of culture in Hawai‘i over the past 150 years. The quaint buildings still stand and many of the kupuna (elders) still remain to tell the story of this special place. This short documentary is driven by their memories and reflections.
