Newspapers were used for Christian educational purposes, to record and debate Hawaiian history and culture, and to debate politics or argue for political activism. Characters portrayed are Rev. Lorrin Andrews, the editor of the first Hawaiian language newspaper Ka Lama HawaiiJohn Papa ‘I‘i and Samuel Kamakau, both contributors on Hawaiian history and culture to Hawaiian language newspapers; Joseph Poepoe, editor of Kuokoa Home Rula and Ka Nai Aupuni; and Emma Nawahi, co-editor of Ke Aloha Aina.
