Premiered 2007. Writer. A personal journey of discovery by an icon of Hawaiian music.

Lahaina, Maui is a place rich in historical and cultural tradition. Once the home of Hawaiian royalty, the first Capitol of the Kingdom of Hawaiʻi and a whaling port, Lahaina’s past century saw the growth of sugar and pineapple plantations and tourism. Now, the end of the plantation era and an increasing reliance on tourism brings new challenges.

Hawaiian music legend and filmmaker Eddie Kamae leads us through the many changes Lahaina has undergone over the past two hundred years and looks at what Lahaina is today, as its residents speculate about its future.
