The Need for Hawaii: A Guide to Hawaiian Cultural and Kahuna Valuesby Patrick Kaanoi
Now available in its third printing, The Need for Hawai'i is a concise and easy to understand introduction to the cornerstones of Hawaiian cultural and spiritual (Kahuna) values. These cornerstones include the concepts of 'Ohana (family), Aloha (love), Pa'ahana (industry), and Maika'i (excellence), and this primer illustrates how these concepts, in concert with Hawaiian philosophical thought, can be applied to bring harmony to everyday life.
Originally created out of the need for the Hawaiian community to recall and apply their values, it offers the reader enormous insight into the oft misunderstood differences between Western and Hawaiian values.
