Bumpy Kanahele in Aloha the movie

The movie “Aloha” deals centrally with the issue of Hawaiian sovereignty, and Bumpy Kanahele plays a prominent role in the movie, which was filmed on location at Pu’uhonua o Waimanalo village (where Kekula and I lived for a while 20 years ago when it was first founded). Reports by those involved from the screening in Honolulu last week were quite positive. It will open in theaters on May 29. I think it’s going to be a lot bigger deal in bringing attention to the issue than most people realize. Here’s a trailer with Bumpy in it (starting at 2:02).
