The ʻĀina Remains

The ʻāina is the land on which we exist, the environment and stage for our history and culture. This production describes Nuʻuanu Valley, Pacific Heights, and Pauoa Valley on Oʻahu, around four themes: (1) the ʻāina holds our symbols; (2) the ʻāina provides us with food; (3) the ʻāina provides us with places to live; and (4) the ʻāina is a stage for our rituals. Also features historical reenactments including a reenactment of a planting party at Uluhaimalama, Queen Liliʻuokalani's garden. Cast and crew includes Clarence F.T. "Ku" Ching (director; actor; producer), Jeannette Paulson Hereniko (producer; editor), John Dominis Holt (Humanities Consultant); and Maʻiki Aiu Lake and Keliʻi Tauʻa as narrators.
