To many people, Hawai’i is just another potential honeymoon spot, or a theme for an office party, or a style of pizza, or your Uncle Bruce’s favorite button down shirt. Many people do not realize or understand that Hawai’i is home to a proud people who value and honor the land as one of their most precious gifts from God. This is evident in how the people of Hawai’i have fought back against major corporations and organizations that abuse the land for profit or other gain.
Hawai’i has a rich history and culture, and some of the most breathtaking scenery in the world, and we believe it should be widely treasured and understood. Build relationships in the Kona’s local community, get to know the people and their culture, and explore the beauty that God has created on this island. As you do these things, you will begin to honor and value the land and culture more and more.
“Must sees” on the Big Island include: Pololu Valley (pictured above), Southpoint, Mauna Kea, and Hapuna Beach.
