From the launch in Hawai'i in May 2014, around the world 60,000 miles, to 23 different countries, this beautiful hardcover book chronicles Hokule'a's epic mission to raise awareness of and nurture worldwide sustainability. Interwoven with descriptions of Hokule'a's experiences in port are the voices of the master navigators and crew members, who guide the ship along the ocean's trackless path using only stars, birds, wind, and seas -- non-instrumental wayfinding techniques-- and the local pioneers -- scientists, teachers, and children touched by Hokule'a' -- who work tirelessly to weather the many environmental challenges in our modern lives. This is a story about our need to draw together into one global community. By respecting one another and nature's delicate and intricate systems, this book captures the many ways indigenous cultures are committed to living in ecological balance.

The Value of Hawai'i

Knowing the Past, Shaping the Future

Author: Craig Howes

Publisher: University of Hawaii Press

ISBN: 0824835298

Category: Political Science

Page: 256

View: 6529

How did we get here? Three-and-a-half-day school weeks. Prisoners farmed out to the mainland. Tent camps for the migratory homeless. A blinkered dependence on tourism and the military for virtually all economic activity. The steady degradation of already degraded land. Contempt for anyone employed in education, health, and social service. An almost theological belief in the evil of taxes. At a time when new leaders will be elected, and new solutions need to be found, the contributors to The Value of Hawai i outline the causes of our current state and offer points of departure for a Hawai i-wide debate on our future. The brief essays address a wide range of topics education, the environment, Hawaiian issues, media, tourism, political culture, law, labor, economic planning, government, transportation, poverty but the contributors share a belief that taking stock of where we are right now, what we need to change, and what we need to remember is a challenge that all of us must meet. Written for a general audience, The Value of Hawai i provides a cluster of starting points for a larger community discussion of Hawai i that should extend beyond the choices of the ballot box this year.

Traditional Micronesian Societies

Adaptation, Integration, and Political Organization

Author: Glenn Petersen

Publisher: University of Hawaii Press

ISBN: 0824832485

Category: Social Science

Page: 278

Micronesians often liken the Pacific War to a typhoon, one that swept away their former lives and brought dramatic changes to their understandings of the world and their places in it. Whether they spent the war in bomb shelters, in sweet potato fields under the guns of Japanese soldiers, or in their homes on atolls sheltered from the war, Micronesians who survived those years know that their peoples passed through a major historical transformation. Yet Pacific War histories scarcely mention the Islanders across whose lands and seas the fighting waged. Memories of War sets out to fill that historical gap by presenting the missing voices of Micronesians and by viewing those years from their perspectives. Book jacket.
