Ka Malu Ali'i: The Legacy of Hawaii's Ali'i
(2007, 57 min.)
Director: Lisa Altieri (Native Hawaiian) and Steve Okino
The 19th century was a time of devastating change for the Hawaiian
people. This documentary looks at the visionary efforts made by
five members of the ali'i, Hawaiian royalty, to provide for the
education of the children, health care, and comfort for the elderly.
The charitable institutions they created have endured and are
thriving and vital institutions today.
