The meaning of Mahu

Mahu is the Hawaiian term for people who embody both male and female spirit – or what Westerners call transgender. This animated scene from the PBS/Independent Lens film “KUMU HINA – A Place in the Middle”- describes how early Hawaiians valued and respected māhū as healers, caretakers, and teachers of ancient tradition.
