Then There Were None

Then There Were None

This documentary by Elizabeth Kapu'uwailani Lindsey chronicles the swift and devastating decline of Hawaii's native people. Many forms of foreign influence have marginalized native Hawaiians in their own homeland: European explorers and missionaries brought devastating diseases; an increasing U.S. presence -- both economic and military -- displaced Hawaiians from their land; tourism and foreign investment created a high cost of living and relegated many native Hawaiians to a permanent under-class status. But Lindsay also portrays the increasing activism of native Hawaiians and renewed efforts to regain their land and their culture. The program features archival stills, rare films, and vintage and contemporary melodies. [26 minutes] Closed Captioning
