The Living Treasures of Hawai’i: Life and Light – Wisdom of Hawai’i’s Treasures brings together the wise sayings and teachings from five Living Treasures of Hawai’i honorees: Robert Cazimero, Puanani Burgess, Lillian Yajima, Rev. Yoshiaki Fujitani, and Nainoa Thompson.

This inspirational television special highlights what makes the Living Treasures of Hawai’i program unique and shares the history of this prestigious honor that is part of the Honpa Hongwanji Mission of Hawaii. Through TV, we can keep the Living Treasures of Hawai’i tradition going in 2021 even while COVID restrictions do not allow for a traditional luncheon program recognizing new honorees.

Here are some one-minute preview clips from the program.
