This April will mark the launch of MANA Magazine, a bi-monthly publication that will cover issues and opinions effecting Hawaiians, heritage, art, music and people. It will be published by a jointly owned subsidiary of The Kalaimoku Group and PacificBasin Communications.
"MANA provides a valued independent voice that is not tied to any organization or viewpoint," said co-owner and co-publisher John Aeto. "We hope to inspire serious exchange, sharing contrasting opinions and ideas on the hard-hitting topics such as governance, education, health, income and more," he said.
"MANA hopes to reach active, engaged Hawaiians everywhere--in Hawai'i, on the Mainland and around the world," said Scott Schumaker, PacificBasin Communications president. "It offers a platform for all those who care deeply about the Hawaiian community and the important role it plays in making Hawai'i, Hawai'i.
The inaugural edition of MANA Magazine will be released in April.
The magazine is currently recruiting an advisory board. The magazine's owners and publishers are looking for nominations that will facilitate the creation of community based content with a statewide scope.
