HPR invites the community to a series of screening events for “Moananuiakea,” the powerful documentary celebrating Hokule’a’s historic Malama Honua worldwide voyage that connected countless individuals and communities from around the globe. It was a voyage that also represented the fulfillment of the vision of Nainoa Thompson and his contemporaries—the passing of the mantle to the next generation of kanaka maoli who will retain the skills of their ancestors and perpetuate this tradition for generations to come.

Author Talk: “The Far Field” by Madhuri Vijay
Pushcart Prize winner Madhuri Vijay discusses growing up in India and the inspiration for her critically acclaimed debut “The Far Field”.

“The Far Field” follows one young woman’s search for a lost figure from her childhood, a journey that carries her from cosmopolitan Bangalore in Southern India to the mountains of Kashmir and to the brink of a devastating political and personal reckoning.” (Scott Burton, Los Angeles Review of Books, 1/16/2019)
