MAHALO NUI LOA TO EVERYONE WHO SUPPORTED KKCR DURING OUR FUND DRIVE!

 
We almost made our goal of $60,000. If you didn’t get a chance yet, please consider supporting KKCR with a donation.
 

This summer KKCR is celebrating 25 years on the air! It is a remarkable achievement for our small island community. FM stations like KKCR are rare. KKCR is run by people who truly love and appreciate music; and by people who are passionate about our local community and Hawaiian issues. Listener contributions make it all possible. Because KKCR is a nonprofit community-supported service, our only commitment is to our listeners—to YOU. YOU make a difference. With your generous support today, KKCR’s programmers will continue to share the music they love and discuss the topics they are passionate about.

KKCR STRATEGIC PLAN

 
Updating KKCR’s Strategic Plan will help us develop the right goals and targets for KKCR and help keep everyone’s efforts focused on meeting them.

As stated by Jerry Brocklehurst in the current Strategic Plan: “By joining together, we can all help the station become what it wants to be and what the community needs it to be – a forum for overlooked, suppressed, and under-represented voices, issues and music, free from the control of commercial and political interests, that reflects the broad, rich spectrum of Kaua‘i’s unique community and promotes the creative, cultural, and political vitality of the community… a station that also preserves, perpetuates, and celebrates Hawaiian culture and that stimulates, educates, and entertains its audience and provides relevant, accurate, and timely information throughout beautiful days on Kaua‘i as well as in times of crisis.” Click here to view the current Strategic Plan.

Nowelo I Kaua‘i Kuapapa

In Search of the Wisdom and Heatbeat of Ancient Kaua‘i – Presented by Kumu Hula Kēhaulani Kekua

Volume 1: Mai Ka Piko O Kaua‘i Wai‘ale‘ale – The Umbilicus of Sacred Life Cycles

 

Nowelo I Kaua‘i Kuapapa is a cultural educational series which highlights Kaua‘i’s wahi pana, or storied and celebrated places, through mele pule, mele oli and mele hula – prayers, chants and dances that have been entrusted to the lineage of Kaipuwai. Kumu Hula Kēhaulani Kekua is a revered cultural practitioner and master teacher of traditional hula, born and raised on Kaua‘i. As the hiapo, or firstborn in her family, she was reared in the custom of hānai – freely given to be nurtured and groomed in hula by her maternal grandmother, Helen Kaipuwai Kekua Waiau. It is through her, that Kēhaulani inherited her family’s generations-old lineage and practices of Kaua‘i hula traditions. Volume 1: Mai Ka Piko O Kaua‘i Wai‘ale‘ale is available to send to you as our mahalo gift for your donation to KKCR.
