Hinaleimoana Wong-Kalu chronicles the discovery of four stones in Waikiki Beach, stones who are also mahu, a group of third gender divine healers brought to Hawai’i from Tahiti. Told in Olelo Niihau, the only form of Hawaiian that has been continuously spoken since prior to the arrival of foreigners.
Shorts that probe the soft spots of belonging-to and longing-for a place in the world.
