A Traditions of the Pacific Lecture Series

What does Mālama Honua really mean to the population of the world? How do we take care of and protect everything that makes up our world: lands, oceans, living beings, cultures, and communities? We need to take care of our limited resources as though we are living on a canoe in the open ocean. On a canoe, water, food, plants, and other basic needs are in limited supply and thus are tended to with great care. Earth’s resources are also in limited supply, so we must tend to them in kind. Come hear about sustainability practices around the world and learn what we can do here in Hawai‘i.
This six-part Traditions of the Pacific lecture series is made possible through the generous support from Hawai’i Tourism Authority and the Tommy Holmes Foundation and in partnership with Polynesian Voyaging Society.
