Balancing Development and Culture: Sig Zane - Full Interview

Oct 24, 2016

  If you’ve walked through Oahu’s Kaka'ako area, you know the place looks a lot different these days. Look around and you’ll see high rise and mixed use buildings under construction for a planned neighborhood, with residential units, shops and restaurants.  The identity that’s also emerging isn’t happening by accident. The Ward Village project of the Howard Hughes Corporation is leaving the sense of place to Hilo artist Sig Zane.

Hawaii now has a ban on sex trafficking. And last week, prosecutors from around the world met in Honolulu to figure out how to better network global trafficking cases. All that's good, but it doesn't help children who have already been affected. Next time on Town Square, we talk with a former trafficked girl, now grown and part of an organization helping to renew other kids' lives. She and the founder of Ho’ola Na Pua, join us along with the executive director of the Women's Fund. Is there a social responsibility to rehabilitate sex trafficked kids and how could we do it in Hawaii?
