Luther Kahekili Makekau: A One Kine Hawaiian Man

PBS HAWAIʻI, in partnership with the Hawaiian Legacy Foundation, features Luther Kahekili Makekau: A One Kine Hawaiian Man, one of ten documentary films by Eddie and Myrna Kamae.

The late Eddie Kamae and his wife Myrna created films to perpetuate Hawai‘i’s cultural heritage for future generations.

Born on Maui in 1890 during the reign of King Kalākaua, Luther Makekau was part philosopher and part outlaw, a chanter, singer and poet, as well as a fighter and a cattle rustler, known throughout the islands for both his passion and his rebellious nature.
