Kū Kanaka - April 26, 2017 (UH West Oʻahu)
In August of 1969, 15-year old Terry "Kanalu" Young took a dive from the rock wall perch where he and his friends were messing around above an unpatrolled beach. The water was shallow and Terry hit his head on sand, becoming in one split second a quadriplegic. He became a professor, activist, and chanter, and inspired Native Hawaiians to reclaim their sense of worth by the daily practice of Hawaiian Language and culture.
