One cannot fully recount the modern history of Hawai’i without sharing the story of Hokule’a, a voyaging canoe that made the historic 1976 journey from Hawai’i to Tahiti eschewing contemporary navigational aids, using only traditional wayfinding. Sail through time and share Papa Mau’s story, as the master navigator and teacher awaits the arrival of his Hawaiian apprentices and their ultimate gift — a sailing canoe.

THOSE WHO CAME BEFORE tells the story of a young Hawaiian `ukulele virtuoso’s journey of musical self-discovery and how it turned into a 50- year quest to help preserve his people’s dying culture. At first Eddie Kamae thought he was just researching some old songs, but felt such a powerful kinship with the work of Hawaii’s last Queen and most prolific composer, Lili‘uokalani, that his pursuit led him to some of the most respected gatekeepers of the Hawaiian Renaissance: the great author and translator Mary Kawena Pukui, the “Songwriter of Waipi’o” Sam Li’a, “Aloha Chant” author Pilahi Paki, and Hawaiian cultural resource Lilia “Mama” Hale.


One by one, they entrusted him with key pieces of Hawaii’s musical heritage — inspiring him to understand, perform, and pass that heritage on to the children of Hawai’i. Now, after half a century as a celebrated bandleader, filmmaker, archivist and oral historian, 83 year-old Eddie Kamae tells this story, honoring his elders with music and vivid anecdotes.
