About this submission

Onipaʻa is a story about a native Hawaiian man named Liʻi, who during the pandemic finds himself being the lone caretaker of a kalo farm or loʻi as everyone else has lost interest in the long standing cultural art. With news of the loʻi being leveled, Liʻi looks to his son to be the caretaker of the next generation, yet like many his son has also lost interest. Liʻi must then look within himself to over come his prejudice and share his cultural art towards a young caucasian boy named James.
