Kūlana Kanaka: Understanding our Authentic Selves

Kau Kupulau, 2023
Featuring: Hinaleimoana Wong-Kalu, Keʻala Kwan

Kūlana Kanaka is a video talk-story that invites guests to speak about our roles and responsibilities as kanaka ʻōiwi to ourselves, our ʻohana, our kaiāulu, and our lāhui.

In this episode, Keʻala Kwan, Director of ʻIke Hawaiʻi Cultural Development at Kamehameha Schools, talks story with Kumu Hina about her identity as a kumu, cultural expert, and advocate. We also find out ways our kūlana or role in society helps to determine our kuleana as kanaka ʻōiwi.
