Hey everyone! This week’s blog topic is family night videos. At the end of the school year our CKTV class has an end of year family night where we show some of our best work. This family night I will be showing a news story that I have worked on with my partner Taylor N. It was on the Waipa Foundation down past Hanalei. Here are 3 reasons why I want to show this video.
The first reason why I want to show this video is because it’s an amazing story about how they preserve the Hawaiian culture with their foundation. I feel like everyone should see this because we all live on this island and people are starting to forget about our Hawaiian culture. The Waipa Foundation is teaching people even in the mainland about the Hawaiian culture so, everyone can learn about it and remember it.
The next reason is because it is such a wonderful place is to visit. Everybody there is so nice and were so open to helping get what we need for our video. They have such a wide variety of plants that have so many uses and while filming I still learned a lot. It is definitely one of my favorite places on the island.
The last reason why I want to show this video is because I want to show that it is possible to get your own fresh produce without the grocery store. In the video you can see all of the fresh fruits and vegetables and they can use it all to eat. Nowadays I feel like people are now relying on the grocery store to get their fresh produce when we have multiple vendors across the island that grow their produce right here on Kauai.
So that’s all for this week! I’m so excited to show this video at family night. Hope you have a wonderful day!
