The Conversion of Kaʻahumanu in Hawaii


Submit Updates Images | Videos | Cast | Creative Team | | Edit

When Lucy Thurston and Sybil Bingham arrive on the shores of Oahu in 1820, a year after Queen Kaahumanu overthrew the traditional kapu system in ancient Hawaii, they immediately attempt their missionary task. Queen Kaahumanu, however, is more interested in their dresses than any new god and has no desire for any new religion. Sybil and Lucy persevere, and so begins the slow, gradual process of Kaahumanus conversion. This complex historical drama explores the official adoption of Christianity in Hawaii.
