As a child Nona ran headlong into the colonial influences that still suppressed the Hawaiian language and culture well into the 20th Century. Through stories, songs, and dances, from some of those whose lives were changed by Aunty Nona, a picture emerges of the crusader who, quietly and sweetly, helped reshape history and restore Hawaiian culture and dance.
