The fourth program in the television series, “The Sovereignty Conversation-Community Forums,” will be shown on Saturday, April 26, from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on ‘Ōlelo Channel 53 (also streaming online). This segment begins three programs on the Models of Nationhood. Soulee Stroud, President of the Association of Hawaiian Civic Clubs (worldwide), and Mehealani Wendt, member of the Kana’iolowalu Registration commission, speak for the “nation-within-a-nation” model, and Leon Siu, Minister of Foreign Affairs for the Hawaiian Kingdom, speaks for the “independence” model. Attorney Poka Laenui moderates this fascinating discussion.
Should you miss, or not tape, the program on Saturday evening, it will be re-broadcast on 5/2 at 3:00 PM, 5/3 at 8:00 AM, and 5/8 at 9:00 AM, all on Channel 53.
Beginning in May, we will return to live broadcasts before a community audience and we will be switching to the third Friday of the month.
