What started in the early 1980s as a humble yet steadfast attempt to bring the nearly extinct native Hawaiian language back to the mouths and ears of our babies, the Pūnana Leo has become one of Hawaiʻi’s leading educational programs. A status that was confirmed by the full Accreditation of the Pūnana Leo preschools by the World Indigenous Nations Higher Education Consortium (WINHEC).

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. Through its website, mobile, and social media venues, ʻŌiwi TV is reaching Hawaiians everywhere and engaging a generation of Hawaiians that expect to access anything and everything from anywhere at anytime.
