Vote for Video Featuring E Ala Canoe Captain Kamu Kapoi by March 1

Message from the White House:

In the fall of 2011, the White House Initiative on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders launched the “What’s your story?” video challenge. The challenge aimed to highlight the personal stories of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPIs) across the country who have impacted their community through their dreams, experiences, and dedication to a cause.

Ultimately, we received over 200 unique and inspiring stories. Each video shines a light on the important work happening around the country. And they remind us what makes this community so strong. From these submissions, we have chosen the top 11 video entrees based on strength of content and creativity.

Now we need your help. Please help us by watching these 11 video submissions at and voting for the story that most inspires you. The deadline for voting is March 1, 2012.

Note from Sen. Shimabukuro: Kudos to Wai`anae’s Kamu Kapoi for being featured in one of the 11 videos that made it to the finals.  Please cast your vote for the video “E Ala (Arise)” by March 1 to bring needed national attention to the E Ala voyaging canoe and one of its captains, Kamu Kapoi!
