PAST FOR FUTURE: VOTE KAMEHAMEHA FOR KING!

Friday, October 26th, 2012 by

Aloha kakou!

One thing that separates Hawaiʻi versus the rest of the US is our way of thinking. The majority of the US tends to never reflect on the past; instead focusing solely on the future. However, we usually tend to use the past to help us in the future, by using the knowledge our ancestors passed down, as well as the mistakes they made. In ancient Hawaiʻi, our way of life sustained close to a million kanaka (Hawaiians), without the advent of modern technology. They survived, lived off the land, and was, for the most part, disease (and dis-ease) free (pre-Western contact of course). In this day and age, even with the advancement in technology, science, engineering and medicine, we deal with issues such as poverty, homelessness, ever increasing drug usage, horrible socioeconomic matters and the almighty “rail issue” that’s always in the headlines these days. Add to the fact that Hawaiʻ’s population has increased dramatically. Which is why we’d like to say Imua Kamehameha! Vote Kamehameha for King, 2012!
