Michelle Sekine performs this debut short story collection by Native Hawaiian and Japanese American author Megan Kamalei Kakimoto. The stories celebrate what it means to be Knaka Maoli (Native Hawaiian) in all its complexities and contradictions. A girl grapples with her Indigenous culture's ceremony of womanhood. A woman wrestles with ideas of motherhood. A queer Knaka author examines what it means to safeguard her culture's stories. Sekine's narration skillfully anchors listeners in each story, her performance shifting to embody every new character. Whether it's a young woman auditioning for a role in an adult film or an elderly woman mourning her partner, Sekine's performance gives listeners additional emotional insight.
