ʻŌIWI TV and PALIKŪ DOCUMENTARY FILMS away AT SEA FOR 25 DAYS. ʻŌiwi TV and Palikū Documentary Films travel by boat to Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument, and return with footage and stories to share with all.
“This pristine, epic, big monument that holds all this life and you know, all these environments and atmospheres that hardly anybody gets to see with their own eyes, it’s a really special thing,” says Kaolonā Ah Chong of ʻŌiwi TV and Palikū Documentary Films.
The Hiʻialakaʻi docked in Pearl Harbor, on September 28, after 25 days at sea. A three-man crew from ʻŌiwi TV and Palikū Documentary Films traveled to Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument and returned to share their stories.
According to Scott Kanda of ʻŌiwi TV and Palikū Documentary Films, “It looked like a painting, the photos we took was unbelievable but to just go up there and touch the water and the ‘āina that this place has something I’ll never forget, definitely life-changing.”
Nāʻālehu Anthony, CEO of ʻŌiwi TV and Palikū Documentary Films, says, “There are some very cool stories in and around this ship and in and around this place so not only did we do place based stuff like a story on Nīhoa. But on board the ship and the inter-workings of this ship, there are these great stories.”
According to Kaolonā, “The images we’ve been getting, the stories we’ve been pulling out, the people we’ve been meeting, the places we’ve been seeing, I can’t wait to go back and share everything that I’ve experienced with, you know, friends and family.”
So, here are the various stories on ʻŌiwi TV. Watch, share, and enjoy Papahānaumokuākea.
