Harry B. Soria Jr., recipient of eight Na Hoku Hanohano Awards for his work producing and annotating Cord’s HanaOla/Cord International releases, recalled Cord’s “huge impact on Hawaiian music.”

Hawaii – A Voice for Sovereignty

is a documentary film by photojournalist Catherine Bauknight that explores the culture of the Native Hawaiians and their connection to the land. At the forefront of the film are social, economic, and ecological issues that have developed in Hawaii since the takeover by the U.S. in 1893, revealed in interviews with grassroots indigenous people and scholars such as author, Haunani-Kay Trask. The documentary goal is to raise awareness of the issues faced by the Native Hawaiians, which threatens their ancient and environmentally sustainable culture. Bauknight hopes to bring this film to the world stage by theatrical release, screenings at international film festivals, and television programming.

Mahalo nui loa to the very special artists who have shared their mana’o, and aloha within the documentary and soundtrack CD. The enlightenment of their beautiful culture is provided within their music and the soundtrack of “Hawaii A Voice For Sovereignty.” This fresh, pure Native Hawaiian music takes you on a journey into the Hawaiian experience.

Mahalo for your mana’o and mele
