Ahu Kupanaha Iā Hawaiʻi ʻImi Loa

Ahu kupanaha iā Hawaiʻi ʻimi loa!

The Hawaiian value of pursuing new knowledge brings bountiful rewards.

– Zepherin Kepelino Kahoaliʻi Keauokalani

Speaking from the 1800s, Kepelino could not have envisioned the recent technological advancements taking place in Hawaiʻi and across the world. He did, however, accurately describe the inclination of Hawaiians to pursue new knowledge. The ʻAha Pūnana Leo preschools follow in this tradition by providing the cultural and educational foundation for a new generation of Hawaiian language speakers. It is with this strong cultural identity that Hawaiians continue to push the bounds of modern technology to preserve our natural resources. This short video, produced for the annual ʻAha Pūnana Leo fundraiser Neʻepapa, includes interviews with leaders of Hawaiʻiʻs sustainability movement such as Keiki-Pua Dancil, Richard Ha, Kekoa Kaluhiwa, Darren Kimura, and Kaʻiu Kimura.

ʻŌiwi TV reaches across generations, socio-economic statuses, and geographic locations as the sole media venue where the Hawaiian language, culture and perspective thrive. Through Digital Channel 326, ʻŌiwi TV reaches over 220,000 households across the entire State via Oceanic Time Warner Cable’s network.
