Must Watch: Living The Sacred Teachings of Aloha

The ances­tral know­ledge of the Hawaii­an people was handed from gen­er­a­tion to gen­er­a­tion through an oral tra­di­tion. Stu­dents were chosen and placed into a school of learn­ing; from that moment for­ward the stu­dent lived the teach­ings of his ancest­ors. Know­ledge, his­tory, and gene­a­logy are pre­served in dance, chant, song, and stor­ies. Con­stant prac­tice and repe­ti­tion was admin­istered until mas­tery was demon­strated in every word and tone. On the island of Molokai, in the val­ley of Halawa this cul­tur­al prac­tice still sur­vives.
