About Defining Courage
Support the Maui relief efforts by attending a special showing of “Defining Courage”. The immersive live performance honors the most decorated US soldiers of World War II-the 100th Infantry Battalion, the 442nd Regimental Combat Team, and the Military Intelligence Service-which originated in Hawai‘i more than 80 years ago.

The stories of these Nisei soldiers, many fighting for the US while their families were incarcerated in America’s concentration camps, are told in a unique live performance that combines live storytelling, new and historic film footage, eyewitness interviews, and live music.

This special "Aloha" edition, hosted by ABC7's David Ono, honors Hawai'i with additional stories, and with dance by Halau Hula Keali'i O Nalani and music by Nick Lee and Grammy Award winners Daniel Ho and Tia Carrere.

Our friends on Maui are “Defining Courage” under tragic circumstances. Let’s stand with them and send love and support. 100% of the proceeds will be donated to the Hawai’i Community Foundation.
