Sons of H?lawa

H?lawa valley is one of the oldest inhabited locations in Hawaii. At the age of 5, Pilipo Solatorio was chosen to be the carrier of H?lawa’s ancient traditions. Now in his 70s, Pilipo is the last of his generation living in the isolated valley. He needs to find a successor to replace him as the carrier of H?lawa's cultural treasures before they are lost.
