What’s in a name? Quite a lot, for people in Hawaii. As HPR’s Molly Solomon reports, it involves traditions that can link family, history, and even a person’s future.

Christen Hepuakoa Marquez's film, "E Haku Inoa: To Weave A Name" will be re-broadcast on Thursday, January 23 at 9 pm on PBS Hawaii.
