Posts Tagged ‘Native Hawaiian’

When Think Tech Hawaii‘s  Jay Fidell told me last Friday I could have a weekly show from 3-4 on my favorite day of the week, Fridays, I was elated, and grateful, to have a platform to actually dialogue Hawaiʻi issues I care about with knowledgeable, committed, community minded people.  No surprise to those of you who know me that I  soon called  dear friend, musician, and storyteller, Jonathan Osorio; a full professor at Kamakakūokalani Center for Hawaiian Studies,  and recipient of the 2010 Robert W. Clopton Award for Distinguished Community Service. He is also husband of Mary, who is as diversely wonderful in a galaxy of other ways, and father of 5 audaciously talented children.

Photo taken at Calvary by the Sea Lutheran church where the Osorios and I can usually be found on Sunday mornings.

What was a surprise, is that a few days after agreeing to be my first guest, he would be spending a very busy media week addressing the announcement by the US Department of the Interior, “. . . proposing a administrative rule to facilitate the reestablishment [sic] of a formal government-to-government relationship with the Native Hawaiian community to more effectively implement the special political and trust relationship that Congress has established between that community and the United States.”  Livestreaming on the internet today at 3pm HST on Think Tech Hawaii‘s digital platform.  Send us your questions via Twitter to @ThinkTechHI. And please, tweet responsibly, don’t tweet and drive.
