About your host

I am a kanaka (Hawaiian) born and raised on Maui. I've seen the good and bad of these islands, and I've also lived it. In 2013, I graduated from a prestigious Hawaiian school, which helped in my understanding of the corruption not only here at home but all over the world.

What we’ll do

"I mua e nā pōkiʻi a inu i ka wai ʻawaʻawa!!!" Step through time as you are immersed in stories of Hawaiʻi from 1750 to present day, and see firsthand what truly lies "beyond paradise." Tour our upper and middle-class neighborhoods, and visit our "ghetto" all while I interweave our dark history. We will also visit historical areas such as ʻĪao valley, Puʻunēnē Sugar Mill, and Wailuku town.
