And we’ll hear from Andre Perez, a Kanaka Maoli (indigenous Hawaiian) sovereignty activist who will offer an updates on the Hawaiian self-determination struggle, since January 17th was the 120th year anniversary of the US-backed overthrow of the Hawaiian Kingdom. Perez is traditional practitioner, grassroots community organizer with MANA (Movement for Aloha No ka ‘Āina), and upstart farmer. Original air-date: 1-22-13.
