Native Voices - Movies at the Markosian Library Series

As part of the national travelling exhibit "Native Voices," come join us for a screening of "Kau Faito'o: Traditional Healers of Tonga" (28 min) followed by "Pidgin: The Voice of Hawai'i" (58 min.). Both of these films touch on topics related to Pacific Islander Culture.

Refreshments will be provided.

"Kau Faito'o: Traditional Healers of Tonga" is a documentary, which not only shows the ancient traditional art form of healing but also tries to capture the essence of being a traditional healer in an ever-changing environment. Traditional healers are shown collecting, preparing and administering herbal remedies that they have passed down from one generation to the next. Healers discuss where, why and how they gained their knowledge and why they choose to carry on age-old customs and practices despite the fact that Tonga is becoming a nation increasingly dependent on western medicine.

"Pidgin: The Voice of Hawai'i" looks at the questions: What if you are made to feel ashamed when you speak your "mother tongue" or ridiculed because of your accent? through a lively examination of Pidgin - the language spoken by over half of Hawai'i's people.

Come for one or both films!
