The Ta-Ke Series aims to bring in community leaders for talks via Zoom to share their insights on modern-day society and current issues and how through the lens of the Nisei values of courage, respect, humility, perseverance, compassion, citizenship, obligation and patience, the community can move to a better place. Take is the Japanese word from bamboo, where groves are a place of refuge during earthquakes because of their strong roots.
Other speakers this month include columnist Lee Cataluna and Kurt Matsumoto of Pulama Lana’i.
