Welcome to Hawaii’s ‘Ninth Island’ – Plate lunch. Lomi lomi. Ukulele. North Shore. If those words sound familiar, you might have Hawaiian in your blood. Las Vegas has one of the largest local populations outside Hawaii itself – that’s why it’s nicknamed the “Ninth Island.” We celebrate with island transplants who now make their home in Las Vegas. Why do so many islanders move to Las Vegas? And how do they keep the island spirit alive so far from the ocean and coconut trees? The deejay of KUNV’s “Little Grass Shack” Hawaiian music show and a hula instructor bring their love of slack key and dance to our studios.
