HAWAII A VOICE FOR SOVEREIGNTY

10.00 am Monday 7 June // Kahungunu Marae, Nuhaka, Wairoa District

Hawaii A Voice for Sovereignty is a documentary film by photojournalist Catherine Bauknight that explores the culture of the Native Hawaiians and their connection to the land. At the forefront of the film are social, economic, and ecological issues that have developed in Hawaii since the takeover by the U.S. in 1893, revealed in interviews with grassroots indigenous people and scholars such as author, Haunani-Kay Trask. The documentary goal is to raise awareness of the issues faced by the Native Hawaiians, which threatens their ancient and environmentally sustainable culture. Bauknight hopes to bring this film to the world stage by theatrical release, screenings at international film festivals, and television programming. (83 mins)
