I strongly remembered that a woman said "we are not American." in the film.
I think that its story was very historical things. In addition, it is also related to problem of race. Hawaii is part of America. it is common sense. Before I came here, I just knew aboutit and temperature is hot. Hawaiian culture is very traditional such as dance, agriculture, music and so forth.
In the beginning of the film, many citizens were arrested by police because they boycotted for destroying. I thought that it was very painful events for them because they just protected the traditional things. people usually want new and convenient things. Those things usually are created by destroying old and traditional things. I thought that it could be helped, but we need to keep traditional things because traditional things are very important for history. moreover, It could be a chance to know how people lived in the past. For example, hula and Hawaiian music tell us how Hawaiian lived in Hawaii. After I watched the film, I felt that keeping traditional things are very important.
