Our purpose is to honor those among us who teach
about our cultural and natural landscape: the ocean, land,
people and spirit that connect us all. The common thread
of the storytellers in these pages is the depth of wisdom
and the hope each possesses and has generously shared.
This collection of stories is guided by the beauty and
enduring power of nature, by history retold as future
knowledge not forgotten, and by the promise of
empowering Hawai‘i’s youth. Each of the contributors
share the belief of giving to community and taking
responsibility to lead sustainable lives of peaceful
Through the Hawaiian tradition of storytelling, the
people’s connection to the ocean and land is preserved.
Our storytellers weave the rich history of Ko Olina, the
Wai‘anae Mountain Range coast and the ‘Ewa plains of
O‘ahu. The telling of stories continues the knowledge
of ocean and land. Without the storytellers, the essence
and soul of Hawai‘i would be lost forever.
We hope the photos within capture each person with
whom we had the pleasure to talk-story. We thank all
who participated in this labor of love and we are grateful
to be able to share just a few of the stories of this
remarkable place in Hawai‘i. - Mona Abadir
