Hawaii: Mystical Islands

The Hawaiian archipelago rising gradually to more than 4 km above sea level, Hawaii's Mauna Loa is the largest volcano on our planet. Its long submarine flanks descend to the sea floor an additional 5 km, and the sea floor in turn is depressed by Mauna Loa's great mass another 8 km. This makes the volcano's summit about 17 km above its base! The enormous volcano is among Earth's most active volcanoes. Its most recent eruption was in 1984 through its Kilauea Crater, and has continued to erupt for 17 years without ceasing.

The first Hawaiians (Kanaka Maoli) arrived after travelling in great double hulled ocean going migration canoes called Wa'a Kaulua. Travelling some 2500 nautical miles from various parts of the South Pacific, they were guided by Kahuna Navigators who followed ancient prophesy, chants and dream messages that told the story of a mystic island in the middle of the sea.

Finding the world's most remote island group was no accident or a matter of just drifting along. Strong equatorial currents and counter currents had to be dealt with. Navigating by known stars and southern constellations became impossible once they crossed the equator into the unknown waters of the Northern Hemisphere.

A Personal Understanding

Living on this island archipelago, they found forces that could bring death and destruction to all, but recognised it as also a creative force. Beautiful, with majestic landscapes and fertile land.

We like to describe ancient people as mystical, magical, supernatural, abnormal, though these are not words that explain a Hawaiian's (Kanaka Maoli) oneness with the living aspects of natural phenomena. As with all ancient people, there are Spirits and Gods still known today as personification of natural forces and energies. Pele, the Goddess of volcanoes, still lives in the hearts and minds of all Hawaiians today and even tourists sense her presence when visiting her home.

The chants and legends about Pele and her clan of sisters are not archaic legends to a true native Hawaiian (Kanaka Maoli), but very dynamic realities, held in an orderly and rational philosophy identifying family in a nature oriented culture.

Traditional beliefs are not merely superstitions. They are the records and interpretations of experiences, gained through being participant observers, and sensitive expressers of a nature oriented culture. With an overwhelming love of family, spirituality, deeply rooted in the family, they upheld it by their unmatched reverence given to their gods and goddesses. This then, became a great beginning for a new existence.
