Aloha my name is Anianikū and I am from the small town of Waimea, Hawaii. Currently, I am a student at the University of Hawaii at Mānoa studying Hawaiian Studies and Art. I love being surrounded in the ocean to gather food or just relax down the beach with my family and friends. I am very passionate about the Hawaiian language, culture and pretty much everything Hawaiian. As a creative storyteller, my goal to help create and preserve the stories of Hawaiʻi through my photos and film. There are so many stories that come from our ancestors, parents and even children of this land that should be preserved. There is so much knowledge and wealth in these stories that is worth preserving. So, if you have an important story to tell,  I would love to work together with you to help tell your story.
