 ‘Äina (pronounced “eye-nah”) means, “that which feeds us” in the Hawaiian language. The film highlights a way to address some of the most pressing environmental and health crises facing the island of Kauai, and of island Earth. That may sound like an outstanding claim; but as "‘Äina" vividly illustrates, such is the power of agriculture and consumer choices for people and the planet. "To malama  ‘Åina is to take care of the earth that feeds us. The minute we lose site of that, we have signed our own palapala make, our death warrant.”— Sabra Kauka

A young Arapaho journalist and a teenage powwow princess travel from the Wind River Indian Reservation with a wise Shoshone elder to explore vanished artifacts kept in the archives of a museum. The three uncover ancestral objects kept in boxes for many years, setting each on a journey to recover their vanished objects, while discovering their true purpose. As the elder looks to the future, the young people look to the past to revive hope for their beloved home.
