By now most have heard the Office of Hawaiian Affairs plans to start a new registry and attempt to create a Hawaiian “nation” now that the Akaka bill and federal recognition are dead and gone.

But no additional new nation is needed since one already exists – the Hawaiian Kingdom.

Why does OHA refuse to recognize that fact? Whatʻs so dramatically different between the “nation” that OHA wants and the one that exists right now?

What would OHA stand to lose if they recognized a Free Hawai`i - the Hawaiian Kingdom? Weʻve got all the answers for you this coming Wednesday on Free Hawai`i TV.

Few things are more important than teaching Hawai`iʻs cultural arts. Marie McDonald, one of Hawai`iʻs revered kupuna or elders, has been doing it for generations, and for her itʻs a labor of love. Donʻt miss our amazing visit with one of Hawai`iʻs cultural treasures this week on Hawai`i’s award winning
Voices Of Truth – One-On-One With Hawai`i’s Future.

“Teaching Our Cultural Arts – A Visit With Marie McDonald”

Throughout history, Hawaiian cultural arts have only been passed down orally to select students. And it’s no different today at HOEA - the Hawaiian `Ohana For Education In The Arts. Marie McDonald, a master lei and tapa maker, shares with us the ancient process by which students are trained and tapa is made. Joined by her daughter in this rare and unique interview, they reveal how this centuries-old art has not only survived, but manages to thrive – Watch It Here
