Quotes

The term “Hawaiian” is only used to refer to people of Hawaiian descent. They are just about 10 percent of the state’s entire population. Everybody else, born and raised in the state, isreferred to as “local.” If you don’t know whether someone is of Hawaiian descent, call him or her “local.” You don’t want to be rude.

ʻŌiwi TV produces top-quality documentaries, news and multimedia content from a uniquely Hawaiian perspective. The wisdom, beauty and power of Hawai‘i are the backdrop to the most important and interesting narratives of our generation. Founded by Nāʻālehu Anthony, Keoni Lee, and Amy Kalili, this next generation of Native Hawaiian storytellers aim to tell the stories of our land and our people. The stories we tell—from the clients we work with to the questions we ask—are shaped by our aspiration to revitalize and affirm a positive native Hawaiian world view. We work to create a new narrative of the modern Hawaiian experience.
