'Hiki No' to feature Waianae farmer's Thanksgiving story

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

"Hiki No," PBS Hawaii's statewide student news network and digital learning initiative, will feature a special holiday story on Thursday evening.

Students from Ka Waihona o ka Naauao Public Charter School on Oahu tell the story of Matthew Kaahaaina, a second-generation Waianae farmer who brings people together every Thanksgiving with a traditional Hawaiian paina (party). Family, friends and community members gather to prepare the meal and to share in giving thanks.

Students from Punahou School will host this new episode which premieres Nov. 6 at 7:30 p.m.

Robert Pennybacker, executive producer of "learning Initatives," and Christen Guzman, a student reporter, shared more information about Thursday's episode.
