NSO experience valuable for freshmen and student leaders LYNN NAK AGAWA News Editor

As the fall semester approaches, incoming University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa freshmen learn the tools of the trade through the New Student Orientation (NSO) program. NSO is led by student leaders who also gain valuable experience from the event. “Students get so much out of the NSO program. They have the opportunity to meet with campus resources and programs, get academic advising, learn about ways to get involved on campus, get a campus tour and learn how to create a safe, balanced and fun college experience,” said Lisa Kitagawa-Akagi, NSO program coordinator. The one-day program runs on six dates from July 27 through Aug. 9 and runs from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Each one-day session has a maximum capacity of 160 new students, to keep groups “small and personal,” said Kitagawa-Akagi. The cost of the program is $100 for the day. It includes academic advising, campus tours, lunch, and further development sessions. Sachiko Roscoe graduated from Mid-Pacific Institute and plans to major in communication at UH. “(NSO) is a good way to meet new people,” she said. “They teach us how to register and teach us things advisers might not know,” said Roscoe. Reko Libby graduated from

Kealakehe High School and plans to major in biology. “We’ve done a lot of activities where you get to meet people,” she said. “We learned the step-by-step processes and all the information on academic advising.” Nineteen NSO leaders, selected through an application and interview process, average about 10 incoming students in their groups per day. Alyssa Nakao, a junior business major, found it rewarding to see her incoming freshmen make new friends. “I really like at the end of the day when they exchange numbers with the other students they’ve met,” said Nakao. The NSO leaders are selected in April and go through a training process. They must enroll in EDA 370: Peer Leadership Education and Mentoring, a three-credit course. The leaders complete two weeks of online work and three weeks of inclass training that includes guest speakers, presentations, journals, and hands-on activities. The leaders also go on a threeday retreat and plan their own fellowship activities. “We’ve done dinners, ice skating, beach day, and team-building gatherings,” said Nakao. “We’ve also done lunches and barbecues.” Keane Santos, a senior double-majoring in finance and marketing, was also an NSO leader. He was motivated to apply because he had a good NSO experience as an incoming student.


UH junior James Kim leads a campus tour for freshmen as part of the New Student Orientation on Friday, July 30 at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa Campus in Honolulu, Hawaii. “Because it was my last summer (to apply to be an NSO leader) it was my last opportunity to try it out,” said Santos. “The people I’ve worked with are all really good people so I’ve made a lot of new friends. If you’re interested in developing skills with people and leadership, this program helps you do that,” he said. Santos and Nakao both made note of the long hours on NSO days.

On orientation days, “we start at 6 a.m. and finish at about 7 p.m.,” commented Nakao. “For people interested in this position, it’s a really good experience, really valuable,” said Santos. “You should do it for the right reasons. You get paid for it but for the time you put into it you have to do it for the right reasons,” he said. Nakao notes that even though the days are long, the NSO lead-

ers and staff, “are in good spirits and really positive.” Other new student programs offered by UHM include the Freshmen & Parent/Family Orientation program, the Transfer & Parent/Family Orientation program, and Warrior Welcome Week that runs from Monday, Aug. 16, to Friday, Aug. 20.

Famed North Shore wave photographer to speak at UH JANE CALLAHAN Staff Writer Clark Little, wave enthusiast and photographer, will speak at UH Mānoa on Aug. 13 for a show that promises a big turnout.

A N U N L I K E LY B E G I N N I N G In 2007, Clark Little’s wife asked him to take a picture of the ocean to display in

their home. They wanted to save money and adorn their walls with photos they’d taken themselves. An avid surfer for the past few decades, Little decided to wade out to the shore break with his simple Nikon for a unique shot. That was the beginning of a fascinating career in photography. “I didn’t go into it thinking I was going to be a professional photographer. Half the time I’m still spinning and wondering what

happened the last few years,” he said of his newfound profession. Prior to becoming a photographer, Little worked as a supervisor for the Wahiawā Botanical Gardens for 17 years. In 2007, he resigned to pursue a full-time photography career. “To resign from a full-time job with all the benefits after 17 years was one of the biggest decisions of my life,” remarked Little. Little’s success literally happened over-

night. He started a portfolio of 28 images and put up a small website. “A friend told me to send my images out to newspapers in the United Kingdom, so I sent 25 pictures that night. I woke up the next morning and had 700 e-mails.” The e-mails were not only from individual fans, but from The Today Show, Inside Edition, and other big name media outlets. See Clark Little, page 2

“The next day I was on an all-expenses paid trip for Good Morning America. They picked me up in a limo and gave me a hotel suite. Before I knew it I was sitting down with Diane Sawyer. It was insane. It just snowballed from there,” he said.

A L OV E F O R T H E O C E A N While never formally trained in photography, Little took to the art form immediately. He does not doctor his photos to create the sparkling translucence of a rainbow-soaked wave, adding that all he needs is a fisheye lens. At first

EDITOR LYNN NAKAGAWA glance, his photos look surreal, but the artist insists, “what you see is what you get.” Little commented that he doesn’t particularly look for the newest cameras, and owns only three. Little says that what drives him to pursue his art is his love of the ocean. “The ocean is my second home. It’s my passion. I wasn’t out there to start a business; I was out there having fun.” With a hobby like surf break photography, an element of danger is sometimes present. “There’s been moments when I’ve panicked. One time I was caught right in the middle of these 15 -foot waves and I had to drop my camera if I wanted to get up for air. I think I was pushing it a little too hard on that one.” This is uncommon, says Little, who feels comfortable with rough surf. “I get smashed around, but I enjoy it. The waves are huge, and I’ll get ripped out to sea, and my adrenaline is pumping, and I’m trying to capture this image. The ‘sand monsters’ are those moments where I know if I commit myself to that wave and put myself in a dangerous position, I could get something really unique.” When the winter subsided and there were no waves, Little pointed his lens toward other subjects. “I started shooting turtles. I shot some


smaller waves while trying to capture more than just the wave. If I can get the coconut trees, the sunset, and the beach, I get the whole package.” In 2009 Little self-published a coffee-table book of his photos, all taken from various locations on the North Shore. His favorite spot to shoot is Ke Iki Beach, near Shark’s Cove. “I love getting into a spot where there’s nobody and finding something unique. Mother Nature always has something new to deliver, and I’m always trying to capture it.” After shooting in the water, which he says can go from six in the morning to one in the afternoon, Little says nothing is guaranteed. In one session he can take up to 700 photographs. “Sometimes you get nothing out of that, or just one keeper. Sometimes it takes two weeks to get something.” While his photography has been lauded internationally, Little is fi nancing his endeavor with his own funds. Using the income from his self-published book and calendars, he is opening his fi rst gallery in Laguna Beach, Calif. on Aug. 5.

THE UH EVENT Little is looking forward to speaking at UH. “(The) last (show) was very successful.

I just want them to walk away and say ‘wow.’” The photographer’s advice for aspiring artists is simple: “Don’t ever give up. Things happen in a weird magical way sometimes, whether it’s expected or not.”

The fight for indigenous rights: Chief Wilton Littlechild DAVIN AOYAGI Managing Editor

Chief Wilton Littlechild spoke at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa from July 28 - July 30 on issues facing indigenous peoples. The Canadian citizen is an Ermineskin Cree Nation elder and was the first indigenous leader elected to Parliament in Canada. He also serves as a commissioner on the Truth and Reconciliation Commission in Canada. Chief Littlechild previously served as the first rapporteur for the United Nations (U.N.) Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues. Ka Leo interviewed Chief Littlechild, during which he discussed the progress of the UN indigenous rights movement, how the indigenous Hawaiians and the Cree, his native tribe, compare, and what UH students can do to become involved in the topic of indigenous rights.



Chief Wilton Littlechild appears in full regalia to speak at the United Nations Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues.

Since 1977, Chief Littlechild has been working at the U.N. and other international forums to promote the voice and recognition of indigenous peoples. He noted that indigenous peoples suffer from being an invisible problem. “The statistics tend to mask the real situation. For example, Canada has been rated as being one of the best places to live … or something to that fi gure. So when people hear about Canada being wealthy and Canada being the nicest,

richest place to live, it masks the real situation facing the indigenous peoples.” Chief Littlechild also outlined the problems facing Native Americans, specifically the Cree. According to Littlechild, “We are known widely for the negative statistics that are usually described. By that, I mean we have the highest suicide rates, the highest drop out rates in school, the highest alcohol addiction rates, and the high-

est unhealthy rates such as obesity and diabetes.” When asked about parallels between the Cree and Native Hawaiians, Chief Littlechild replied, “I think there are very similar challenges … for example on the issue of native language, I understand that the language was just about lost. In fact I remember UNESCO awarding Hawaiʻi a very prestigious annual award for being able to sustain and retain and strengthen a language by having students immersed in the language.” He continued by describing three major gains for indigenous peoples in the international arena. “The United Nations’ permanent forum on indigenous issues that was established at the U.N. in New York, the special rapporteur on the rights and violations of indigenous peoples, and the expert mechanisms on the rights of indigenous peoples. These are all new institutions within the U.N. that are being very helpful in increasing the respect and consideration at the international level.” T here is more that can be done, however, according to L it tlechild. He pr imar ily emphasi zed the need for more recognit ion of indigenous peoples on the nat ional level, st at ing that there are approx imately 375 million indigenous peoples under the U.N. def i nit ion. He also felt that st udents should consider st udy ing and advocat ing on behal f of indigenous r ights, “ S cholarships and inter nships are becoming ava ilable to st udy and become an exper t in the area of indigenous r ights.”

Isaiah Mustafa is the popular spokesman for Old Spice advertisements. OLD SPICE YOUTUBE.COM

C HRIS M IKESELL Opinions Editor

Hello, ladies. I’m not Isaiah Mustafa, Old Spice spokesman, but I’ve seen him on T V and thus know for a fact that he is fantastic. He is the man your man could smell like, and if you could smell any man on Earth, ladies, odds are, you’d want it to be him. But ladies, Mustafa is not just the man your man could smell like. Mustafa is the man your man could be like. Ladies, that man – the man your man could be like – is a man who does things superlatively. In a perfect world, you would be smelling him while he did things awesomely, and he would smell awesome doing them. Now, imagine that I’m the man who smells like the man your man could smell like. Would I be less fantastic doing the things that man could do if I didn’t smell like the man you wish your man could smell like? Of course. But considering your op-

tions, would you be satisfied with the man who only smelled like the man your man could smell like? Or would you rather have the man who does things like the man your man could smell like, only smelling differently? Ladies, it’s easier to smell your man if he never leaves the couch, but my glistening, masculine intuition tells me that it would be better to watch your man excel and then liberally lather him afterwards in the body wash of your choice. Personally, I would want both men at the same time, but that amount of concentrated fantasticality is both illegal and wrong, and would probably make your head explode just thinking about it. But fear not, ladies. My rippling, muscular imagination can contain that level of awesomeness safely. W hile the man your man could be like could ver y well be the man your man could smell like, ask yourself this: A re you the woman that the man your man could smell like would want smelling him?

Here is a test. Find your man. Ready? Fantastic. Imagine I’m there. Look at your man. Now look at me. What color are his eyes? Do you know without peeking? Look at a calendar. Circle his birthday. You’d expect him to know yours, and he doesn’t even smell like the man you’d want your man to smell like yet. L adies, if you’re not tr ying to be as fantastic as the man you want your man to smell like, no body wash is going to f ix that. If you expect your man to be like the man your man could smell like, you should also strive to be the superlative woman that man would want to have around. A f ter all, a fantastic man deser ves an equally fantastic lady. The same goes for the gentlemen, and the ladies who would prefer other ladies. Likewise with the gentlemen who would prefer the company of a man who smells and acts like the man ladies wish their men smelled and acted like. It ’s alright. The smell of awesomeness is hard to resist.
