There are over 100,000 Hispanics is Hawaii. We are represent roughly 9% of the state's population. And starting May 1, 2008, we are going to have our own -- and only -- Hispanic newspaper !
The Hawaii Hispanic News (HHN) is returning just in time for Cinco De Mayo! The pur-pose of the 16-page monthly newspaper is to “educate, elevate and advocate for” our diverse Hispanic community in the islands.
Our name says it all: “Hispanic News.” This is a newspaper about us, for us and by us. It will provide the kind of in-depth news coverage our community deserves, but – understandably -- the mainstream print media cannot provide because they have to cover the entire spectrum of communities.
Regular columns will address issues that interest our Hispanic community in the is-lands: Health; Education; Community; Culture; Business; Food; Employment; Govern-ment; Housing; History; Military; Politics; Entertainment; Religion; and Sports. Vari-ous reputable professionals will have regular columns in each edition to discuss sub-jects in their area of expertise.
The publishers -- Marie and José Villa -- published the paper previously from 1994 - 1999, but they were ahead of their time. "Corporate Hawaii" had not realized the tre-mendous growth the state's Hispanic population was undergoing.
The paper will be distributed free through the various statewide venues where our Hispanic community congregates including: Hispanic restaurants; Latin dances; churches; store fronts; universities; military bases; private and public school Spanish clubs; and Hispanic organizations; etc.
