A Different Kind of Superhero


In this latest film by Na Maka o ka `Āina, taro grower and Native Hawaiian practitioner Jerry Konanui works to propagate and save from extinction the numerous varieties of kalo (taro), a staple of the Hawaiian diet. Jerry's mission is also to protect kalo, revered as the elder sibling (Hāloa) of the Hawaiian people, from the risks of genetic engineering. Uncle Jerry = a different kind of superhero.
