Here in Nature, you’ll find titles that portray Hawaii’s wondrous natural environment. The veneer of American civilization here lies atop a stratum comprised of the local way of life and its story and plantation legacy. Which in turn lies upon the thousand-year depth of Hawaiian culture and civilization. All of this exists upon the bedrock of a natural environment that has evolved thousands of miles from the nearest landmass.
Aia nō ka pono – ʻo ka hoʻohuli i ka lima i lalo, ʻaʻole ʻo ka hoʻohuli i luna. – That is what it should be – to turn the hands palms down, not palms up. ( No one can work with the palms of his hands turned up. When a person is always busy, he is said to keep his palms down. Said as a compliment to someone that is not afraid of work.).
