Kupuna Film Project

The Makawao History Museum has received a $10,000 grant from the Fred Baldwin Memorial Foundation for the purpose of filming the stories of living kupuna (elders) to produce a professional film that conveys the unique and important history of upcountry Maui.

25 to 40 kupuna and residents of note will be interviewed and filmed. Once this is completed, the Museum hopes to raise funds to develop a marketable 60 minute documentary that can be used by schools, film festivals and PBS.

The Kupuna Film Project is an important part of fulfilling the mission of the Museum by preserving and sharing the heritage of the Makawao community.
