The ʻUluʻulu Henry Kuʻualoha Giugni Moving Image Archive of Hawaiʻi at UH West Oʻahu recently digitized archival video footage of the late Senator Daniel K. Inouye speaking to Hawaiʻi residents in Japanese. A complete translation of the video “Senate Recording Studios 1963” was not fully accessible to non-Japanese-speaking researchers until now. Through a collaboration with instructor Kristy Ringor and her History 281 students at neighboring Hawaii Tokai International College (HTIC), the ʻUluʻulu Archive now has a translation of the speech.

On Wednesday, Dec. 9, the ʻUluʻulu Archive hosted a presentation where HTIC students presented findings from their translation work and provided context about Senator Inouye’s life at the time of the film. They discussed differences between the English and Japanese language versions of the speech and the reasons for those differences. The discussion addressed Inouye’s life; nuances of language focusing on the use of English and Japanese; and historical events including the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, mentioned by Inouye in the “Senate Recording Studios 1963” broadcast.

This free event was held on Wednesday, Dec. 9, from 10-11 a.m. in the UHWO Library ʻUluʻulu Archive Exhibition Space.

Students from Hawaii Tokai International College (HTIC) and the University of Hawaii–West Oahu (UHWO) enjoyed a Peer Mentor Picnic at Magic Island on Saturday, October 17, 2015. The Peer Mentorship program for UHWO students and HTIC Liberal Arts students was initiated in the Fall 2015 term by the HTIC Office of Student Services (OSS) and is an example of the growing and mutually beneficial partnership between HTIC and UHWO. The Peer Mentorship program assists HTIC students with the transition to college life in Hawaii and provides students from both campuses the opportunity to learn new cultures while sharing their own. OSS hopes to further expand this program in future terms. Students interested in becoming a mentor should contact Academic Liaison Officer Erin Fukumoto at efukumoto@tokai.edu.
