When The Conversation last talked with Kumu Hula Patrick Makuakāne, he was preparing a project featuring the legend of Hiʻiaka. But the pandemic hit and that got put back on the back burner, though it may be released later this year.

But the other project that Makuakāne had in mind was the hula production "Mahu," which was to be staged in 2020. He was happy to report that it will debut in October at the San Francisco Palace of Fine Arts Theatre. The Conversation talked to Makuakāne about what to expect.

This interview aired on The Conversation on Aug. 11, 2022. The Conversation airs weekdays at 11 a.m. on HPR-1.
