A Place in the Middle

10 Nov

What a wonderful short film!! I had no idea that traditional Hawaiian culture not only accepted those that identified with both male and female traits, but embraced these folks as important members of society. This film shares the story of a young student’s identity as a māhū – those who are “in the middle”.

I hope you will take the time to watch and consider!
