    Auaia E Kama

    Auaia E Kama

    Aloha, and welcome back kanaks!  The world is going through a time of transition.  From one state of being to a new state of being.  And often times, this  transition is can be scary and unpredictable.  But the transition only occurs because it needs to, and transformation is required for things to adapt to environmental changes.  This oli, Aua ia E Kama, speaks to that transition,  It speaks about Hulihia, or that tumultuous time where things are turning.  I hope you all enjoy this episode as we dive deed into this ceremony.  It will be one of our most enlightening episodes yet.

Cheee!!! 😱🙌🏽🌱🤙🏽

Mahalo nui for sharing the awesome ‘ike! Love how you folks reveal to us the perspectives, scientific observation and inductive studies that our kūpuna conducted and recorded through ‘oli and mele! Great mana’o and definitely something that should be shared and taught more often to the youth as well as the other kānaka that occupy these islands we call home. Like you folks said, we all have a kuleana whether you like it or not to practice this reciprocal relationship with not only other fellow kānaka, but our resources and cycles that allow us to thrive and continue living! E Ho’omau ‘ia lā!!! 🙏🏽🙌🏽🤙🏽
