HIKI NŌ 1|23|20: The Student’s Take | Program

 

This special edition features HIKI NŌ students Kallen Wachi (Waimea High School, Kauaʻi) and Kaycee Nakashima (Hawaii Baptist Academy, Oʻahu) convening in PBS Hawaiʻi’s HIKI NŌ editing suite to share their insights, feelings and revelations about some of the top stories from the Fall Semester of the 2019-2020 school year. (Kallen and Kaycee began their HIKI NŌ careers together at Chiefess Kamakahelei Middle School on Kauaʻi.) The stories Kallen and Kaycee give their take on include:

 

“Suburbia”

“Chazz’s World”
Students from H.P. Baldwin High School on Maui tell the story of Chazz – a high school student who works at a pizza parlor to help his family pay the bills. The story explores the stress and other emotional hardships the situation causes for Chazz.

 

“A Second Chance”
Students from Waiākea High School in the Hilo district of Hawaiʻi Island tell the story of Easten Tanimoto, a young man who, under the influence of psilocybin (hallucinogenic mushrooms), climbed a telephone pole, was electrocuted, then fell to the ground, sustaining serious injuries and severe burns.

INSIGHTS ON PBS HAWAIʻI
Minimum Wage Legislation

 

After failing to raise Hawaiʻi’s minimum wage last year, State lawmakers are trying again with a reworked bill. Critics say it still falls far short of a so-called living wage in these expensive Islands. What should the minimum wage be? And if a bill does pass, how will it affect small business employers who also struggle to make ends meet? Join the discussion on Minimum Wage Legislation on INSIGHTS ON PBS HAWAIʻI.

It’s a stunning statement: Suicide is the leading cause of injury-related death in Hawaiʻi. Health officials report that an average of 190 people take their own lives each year. The reasons stem from depression, significant life changes and the trauma of abuse. Nearly a thousand other individuals survive a suicide attempt. But suicide can be prevented, and everyone can help.
