The Cultural Legacy of Three Hawaiian Women
A documentary by Eddie and Myrna Kamae

KEEPERS OF THE FLAME is the story of three extraordinary Hawaiian women who helped revive Hawaiian culture when it was perilously close to being lost. It was a time when the monarchy had been overthrown, the Hawaiian language banned from public places and schools, and the Hawaiian heartbeat of hula forced underground.

The lives of Mary Kawena Pukui, `Iolani Luahine and Edith Kanaka`ole are described through heartfelt interviews with people who knew and were influenced by them, along with wonderful archival footage.
