The Natives Are Restless explores the issues of imperialism, sovereignty and occupation in Hawai’i, its impact on the Hawaiian Kingdom and the native resistance that continues today. Told through hula, this full-length, multimedia production is a thrilling new reiteration of the hālauʻs iconic show that originally premiered in 1998, and will showcase Kumu Hula Patrick Makuakāne’s innovative choreography.
