Our mission statement:
Below is the mission statement from the previous writers, staff, owners and contributors to the Hawaii Island Journal. While the Journal has changed hands, our goals are still very much inline with what the former foundation was trying to achieve. Because of cost and accessibility, we intend to operate the Journal as an internet only publication. Instead of being limited by print distribution methods and resources, we hope that people far and wide will find our website. Anyone from around the world can learn about issues facing the citizens of Hawaii and can contribute to the ongoing discussion of problems, solutions, and concerns.
Aloha and Mahalo for your support in our endeavors from,
Hawaii Island Journal
to illuminate, make clear,
enlighten & inform.
The Hawaii Island Journal is an independent, island-wide newspaper which aims to, humanely, slay threatening dragons on the Big Island of Hawai’i. The Journal, born in late 1999, fights to protect the environment, promote political activism, champion native Hawaiian causes, take David’s side against Goliath and spotlight dollar-driven schemes that imperil the island’s character, culture and charm. Then, too, it highlights good people doing good things.
The Journal questions, reveals, challenges and praises. Truth, fairness and accuracy are its guidelines.
