Huakaʻi Papahānaumokuākea 2012

An ʻŌiwi TV film crew joined a NOAA research vessel in September 2012 to document Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument. Very few people are allowed access to this protected marine sanctuary and witness first-hand the abundance of wildlife and cultural sites throughout the island chain. The video, pictures, and stories sent back by the ʻŌiwi TV crew is aimed to give everyone a chance to see and learn about this amazing place.

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.
