Hear innovative movement building activists and leaders share their personal experiences and perspectives on a range of approaches and issues of critical importance today. Nā'ālehu Anthony is a Native Hawaiian from Ka'a'awa, O'ahu and is the founder of Palikū Documentary Films — a production company that focuses on documentaries and oral histories with a special emphasis on Hawai'i and its people. Anthony has a vast array of experience in the film industry and has been immersed in the Hawaiian community throughout his life. Nā'ālehu's other great passion is being a part of the voyaging community. As a crew member since 1996 and more recently as a captain aboard Hōkūle'a, his voyaging experiences have shaped and defined him as a person and has been a focal point for his films.
