For 30 years, the Native Hawaiians of Maui have been involved in legal battles to restore stream flows to their communities. Join us for the debut screening of the film Ho‘i Ka Wai I Kahi Kūpono documenting the decades-long struggle of East Maui kalo farmers to gain access to stream water.

The film screening will be followed by a discussion panel. Panelists for the event include: Koa Hewahewa, Hōkūao Pellegrino, Ed Wendt, Summer Sylva, Bobby Pahia and Ke‘eaumoku Kapu, and will be moderated by Maui County Council member Keani Rawlins-Fernandez. Free. Sponsored by OHA. U.H. Maui College Pa‘ina Bldg
