May 31-July 1: Kāmau A‘e

January 15, 2012

By Alani Apio

The Hawaiian sovereignty movement, with its complexities and controversies, is the focus of this powerful drama. Fresh out of prison, Michael Kawaipono Mahekona joins a group of activists on a mission to reclaim Hawaiian land. As the group splinters over whether to stand firm or compromise on its principles, Michael must decide how to stay true to his beliefs.

First produced in 1997, Kāmau A‘e returns to Kumu Kahua, sharing its message with a new generation of audiences.

This play contains strong language.
