Scottish history in Hawai’I dates back to the late 1800’s when sugar cane equipment, and the men to run them, were imported from Scotland. This week, Scots and Scots at heart across the state and around the world are celebrating the Burns Supper in honor of Scotland's National Bard. HPR’s Noe Tanigawa profiles this annual event.
This year, O'ahu's Burns Supper is scheduled for Saturday, January 29th, 5:30, at the Hawai'i Convention Center. Find out more at www.scotsinhawaii.org
