The 2017-18 Campus Community Book Project, featuring Janet Mock's Redefining Realness: My Path to Womanhood, Identity, Love & So Much More, invites you to a screening of the film Kumu Hina (2014, 77 min.). Presented by the Cross Cultural Center, LGBTQIA Resource Center, American Indian Recruitment & Retention (AIRR) of the Student Recruitment and Retention Center, and Women’s Resources and Research Center. This event is free and open to the public.

Kumu Hina is a powerful film about the struggle to maintain Pacific Islander culture and values within the Westernized society of modern day Hawaii. Told through the lens of Hina Wong-Kaluan, an extraordinary Native Hawaiian: a proud and confident māhū, or transgender woman, honored and respected kumu (teacher), cultural practitioner and community leader. Discussion will follow the screening, to connect the themes of Kumu Hina to Redefining Realness. Refreshments provided.
