 Home is Here
808 Breakers and KKV Roots Cafe
Wed., Jan. 25, 7:30 pm
Culture takes the spotlight in this month’s episode of Home is Here, but in two very different ways. In Kalihi on Oʻahu, the non-profit Kōkua Kalihi Valley (KKV) is looking to help the community connect with its cultural roots through food and farming. Also featured is a group that gets no shortage of exercise, 808 Breakers. Founded in 2005, the group brings together Hawai‘i’s elite breakdancers.
On HIKI NŌ ON PBS HAWAIʻI: Life Lessons (Tue., Jan. 24, 7:30 pm), Cadence Wisniewski, a junior at Kalāheo High School on Oʻahu, returns to the PBS Hawaiʻi studio to host an episode about life’s lessons – shared by both HIKI NŌ student correspondents and the people they spotlight in their community.
What School You Went? (Wed., Jan. 25) visits with talented musician and local boy Thunderstorm Artis as he shares his journey from the North Shore of O‘ahu to the final round of NBC’s The Voice and beyond.
Check out our past episodes and new episodes of What School You Went? every Wednesday on or anywhere you get your podcasts, including Apple and Spotify.
Where are the workers? That’s the question that PBS Hawai‘i asks as they bring together industry representatives, organized labor leaders, workers, economists and workforce trainers to discuss this issue in a live 90-minute program, KĀKOU: HAWAIʻI’S TOWN HALL, Where Are The Workers? (Thur., Jan. 26, 7:30 pm).
 PBS HAWAIʻI PRESENTS: Scaling Up Hawaiʻi’s Food Future (Thur., Jan. 26, 9:00 pm) The onset of the COVID-19 pandemic brought to the forefront problems like Hawaiʻi’s overdependence on imported food and its reliance on a tourism-based economy. Hear from local farmers, entrepreneurs, government leaders and other stakeholders as they share ideas on how to increase the state’s homegrown food supply as well as agricultural exports to help diversify Hawaiʻi’s economy.
AMERICAN MASTERS: Roberta Flack (Tue., Jan. 24, 9:00 pm) explores the music icon’s rise to stardom and triumphs over racism and sexism. Detailing her story in her own words, the film features exclusive interviews with Clint Eastwood, Yoko Ono, Peabo Bryson and others.
NATURE: Soul of the Ocean (Wed., Jan. 25, 8:00 pm) is a deep dive into the complex world of ocean waters to see how life underwater co-exists in cooperative communities built on age-old partnerships. Among the creatures featured are sharks, rays, whales, jellies and squids.

Final Thought…
One of our priorities as your public media source and resource is to provide a fair and respected platform for Civic Engagement with unfettered public access to information people can trust.
Next week, we continue our commitment to present diverse views on important issues affecting Hawai‘i, with the first of six monthly installments of KĀKOU: Hawaiʻi’s Town Hall.
On Thursday, January 26, 7:30 pm, we ask community leaders, “Where Are The Workers?”  Employers in the public and private sectors are struggling to find workers to fill vacancies. It is a concerning trend across the country, including in Hawaiʻi, which had the nation’s lowest unemployment rate before the pandemic.
We invite you to join us for a 90-minute town hall style program, brodcasting live on PBS Hawai‘istreaming on pbshawaii.orgYouTube and Facebook. Civic Engagement can have a positive impact on communities but it requires participation. We encourage you to ask questions through email, phone and online for our panelists to answer.
