Media Workshop in Hawaii

Lowlander Center sent several youth to Hawaii to work with and learn from Kalani Souza of the Olohana Foundation. The project is about radio/TV station broadcasting and production training. This will train youth to create Native owned and run media with stories being focused on Native country in our own voice. It trains them in journalism and representation of tribes and tribal issues. It took place the first week of June and will be followed up with long-distance mentoring. The key is getting youth involved. It’s important because it is another way to present and represent the voice, history, and ideas of the people. It will be first hand and community controlled.
