Sam Low: Raising Islands
Tuesday, November 25 at 7:30 pm
As a crewmember on the Hokulea, waterman Sam Low experienced the chicken skin
moments when, as the canoe would approach a Pacific island, the island itself
would appear to be raised out of the distant horizon as the canoe sailed
closer. As a documentarian, author Sam Low heard the vision, fears and
dreams of master navigator Nainoa Thompson and those involved with sailing the
canoe. On this episode, Sam Low shares his stories of sailing on Hokulea.

Jim Burns: A Local Boy
Tuesday, December 2, 7:30 pm
If you call Jim Burns a haole he would likely take offense. His father, John A.
Burns, always thought of himself as a local boy. Jim, who grew up in Kailua and
easily breaks into Pidgin English, sees himself the same way. As Jim was
growing up, he saw the respect that his father had for Hawaii immigrants, and
learned that being a local boy was about more than just speaking Pidgin.
