At 8 p.m., there will be a free outdoor screening of Catherine Bauknight's award-winning film "Hawai'i a Voice for Sovereignty," which features many Maui community leaders.
Tau'a, a songwriter and kumu hula of Maui Nui a Kama, is being recognized as an active member of the community. Gilliom is being honored for her music as a top-selling female vocalist as well as her support of Akaku. Ho'opi'i, an award-winning falsetto singer and songwriter, is being recognized for his music talent.
All three will imprint their hands, feet and signatures into blocks of cement on the pathway to Akaku's front door.
