Native Hawaiian Hina is a respected teacher and māhū ­­– one who embraces both masculine and feminine spirit.

Kumu Hina is the tale of her transformation from shy schoolboy to a married transgender woman and cultural director of a school in Honolulu. When Ho’onani, a young girl with a big personality, wants to join the school’s all-male hula group, Hina guides her in expressing the masculine side of her soul.
