We have a deep respect for the a’ina (land) and the culture and history of the Kanaka Maoli— (the Hawaiian People). We share the culture of Maui’s Hawaiian spirit with tens of thousands of people each year who come out on tour with us.
Visitors often tell us they feel like they’ve become part of our ohana (family) and as they learn the stories, legends and history of the Hawaiian people. It is our hope, our silent prayer and our kuleana (responsibility) to help all who come on our tour to understand just a bit more than they thought they would about this beautiful island and the ways of these very special people.
After all, the Hawaiian ancestors, as well as the Hawaiians of today, created and continue to create Aloha. This word is well known throughout the world but for the most part is not understood to it’s full meaning. Aloha evolved from a polynesian race who, for reasons unknown, ventured away from their western Pacific home out into the unknown ocean some 1000 years ago. These people evolved into a society that was totally self sustaining and became deeply rooted in the idea of working together for the survival of the community.
