Respect is something us haoles need to learn - The Paukukalo locals taught me what it is to show respect to the water, the land, the people, but above all to the ohana. I was lucky enough to be accepted into the hui and am proud to know these fine friends.
Dr. H is a prime example of who the locals hate..not the haoles..the dumbfuk fools who visit the Islands and have no idea what respect means.
Approach the locals, introduce yourself, and ask permission to share their beautiful home with you. Is that too much to ask? Ask about their culture...you'll be surprised at how much you can learn about devotion..to your surroundings, family and friends.
Mahalo Paku's..much love always
