 Kumu Hina Biography

Hinaleimoana Wong-Kalu, also known as Kumu Hina, a staunch warrior for her islands and her people, continues to advocate for Native Hawaiian issues spanning politics, culture, language and history of her home. Hinaleimoana remains dedicated to educating and empowering her community for the last three decades, and actively teaches "Kanaka Maoli" philosophy and traditions to promotes cross-cultural alliances throughout the Pacific Islands.

Hina was a founder of the Kulia Na Mamo transgender health project, cultural director of a Hawaiian public charter school, and candidate for the Office of Hawaiian Affairs, one of the first transgender candidates for statewide political office in the United States. She also served as the Chair of the O'ahu Island Burial Council, which oversees the management of Native Hawaiian burial sites and ancestral remains. She is a recipient of the National Education Association Ellison Onizuka Human and Civil Rights Award, Native Hawaiian Community Educator of the year, and a White House Champion of Change.

In 2014, Hina was the subject of the feature documentary film "Kumu Hina", which premiered as the closing night film in the Hawaii International Film Festival and won several awards including best documentary at the Frameline Film Festival and the GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Documentary. She wrote an educational children's version of the film, A Place in the Middle,[5] which premiered at the Berlin International Film Festival and Toronto International Film Festival for Kids and is featured on PBS learning media.

Switching to the other side of the lens, Wong Kalu co-directed and produced the short film, "Lady Eva", and feature documentary "Leitis in Waiting" about the struggle of the Indigenous transgender community in the South Pacific Kingdom of Tonga. Her films on this subject screened and won awards at AFI Docs and the LA, Margaret Mead, FIFO and Commonwealth film festivals and are being broadcast on PBS/Pacific Heartbeat, ARTE, Maori TV, TV France and NITV.
