Episode Description:

Hawaiian cultural practitioner and activist Kalaniakea Wilson has seen many times when Hawaiian cultural values have been ignored in Hawai`i, but none so blatant as when the University of Hawai`i attempted to patent taro, which is the staple food of Hawaiians and considered sacred. We spent an afternoon with Kalaniakea at an ahu or sacred altar which was built right outside the UH presidentʻs office that quickly became the focal point of this struggle. There he explained why kalo, or taro is special to Hawaiians and showed us the deep cultural significance of the ahu and itʻs surrounding plants. Donʻt miss our fascinating visit with Kalaniakea to see why Hawai`iʻs cultural and historical values are more important than ever to all of us today.

Episode Short Description: Hawaiian activist Kalaniakea Wilson shows us the site of the now famous taro patent protests at UH Manoa & the history of the Hawaiian flag.
