Native Perspective

North Shore Eco Tours / Native Perspective

We at North Shore EcoTours recognize the inherent value in representing and preserving traditional Hawaiian ‘ike (knowledge) for the benefit of human kind and our planet. A “Native perspective” represents ancestral wisdom passed down from one generation to the next through orature such as: mo’olelo (stories), kāʻao (legends), oli (chant), hula (dance), etc. Native Hawaiian perspectives are based upon an intimate relationship with the natural environment and promote strong familial ties. Societal values, religious beliefs, and even cultural practices are all founded upon elements within Hawaiian nature. We firmly believe that exposure to Hawaiian values will ultimately enrich the lives of everyone on our planet by helping us to re-focus on family, environment, and the celebration of life. Allow us to share with you ancestral wisdom of Hawaiʻi that is as true for us today as it was in ancient times for nā Kānaka Maoli (Native Hawaiians).
