Overview

In the Hawaiian culture, the 'ohana can encompass, besides those born with blood ties, those accepted by marriage or hänai (adopted), deceased and spiritual ancestors, as well as those tied to the same 'aina.

'Ohana is a collection of both favorite Hawaiian proverbs and those from the other major cultures that make up Hawaii's ethnic landscape. The importance of the Hawaiian 'ohana is echoed and re-enforced in the ideals of other groups living in the islands today-Japanese, Filipino, Chinese, Korean and Fijian.

Vintage photographs from Hawaii's visual archives accompany the quotes to make them more poignant and give them a sense of timelessness. In unison, the blend of text and images become a celebration of the importance and strength of 'ohana in Hawaii and a tribute to the universality of family.

The collection illustrates that the values of love, respect and maintaining harmony within the family are ultimately universal and transcend culture and ethnicity.
