LUTHER KAHEKILI MAKEKAU
A One Kine Hawaiian Man
This award-winning, one-hour documentary pay tribute to the untamed spirit of a colorful and controversial Hawaiian man. Known throughout these islands and descended from a line of warrior chiefs, Luther Makekau was part philospher and part outlaw, a chanter and a singer, a fighter and a lover, a cattle rustler, a rebel and a poet.
Born in on Māui in 1890, during the reign of King Kalākaua, he lived nearly a hundred years, shaped by a century of turbulent cultural change.
"Luther Kahekili Makekau was colorful, controverisal and cantankerous... Kamae's goal was not to canonize him but to share his spirit..."
Wayne Harada, Honolulu Advertiser
