Summary This award-winning documentary pays tribute to the untamed spirit of a colourful and controversial Hawaiian man. Known throughout the islands and descended from a line of warrior chiefs, Luther Makekau was part philosopher and part outlaw, a chanter and a singer, a fighter and a lover, a cattle rustler, a rebel and a poet. Born on Maui in 1890, during the reign of King Kalakaua, he lived nearly a hundred years, shaped by a century of turbulent cultural change.
