Hawaii's First People

Hawaii's first people are descended from a proud race of Polynesians. These fabled mariners came to Hawaii in ocean-going voyaging canoes. Their migrations, covering thousands of miles of open ocean, were the work of an exceptionally skilled and courageous people. Living in near-perfect isolation for centuries, the Hawaiians developed a unique and complex culture and social structure. Grounded in a deeply felt reverence for the a'ina, the land, this proud race grew and prospered. Their traditions of stewardship, of community, and of open-hearted sharing survive today, embodied in Hawaii's Aloha Spirit.

Today Hawaii's first people are engaged in a struggle to rediscover and perpetuate their native culture. Hawaiians everywhere are experiencing a new level of pride and a new commitment to their legacy as an indigenous people. Their quest for Hawaiian soverignty, combined with the rebirth of Hawaiian traditions, language, music, and art forms such as the fabled Hula, all make today's Hawaiian people respected around the globe. The links below offer you an opportunity to begin your exploration of the heart and soul, the past, present and future, of Hawaii's first people. An eclectic grouping, they represent the diversity of the Native Hawaiian experience and viewpoints.

Not too long ago the idea of a small island in Hawaii, farther away from anyplace else than anyplace else, being on the cutting edge of Interet technology, was preposterous. That was then, this is now. Maui has embraced today's cutting edge technologies in a big way. Witness the fact that Maui is now home to one of seven National Supercomputing Centers! Or, make plans to attend one of Maui's growing number of high-tech conferences. Rub shoulders with many of the planet's leading digerati while you experience the latest in high-tech imaging and digital art.

Maui's climate, geology and topography are as diverse as our Island's peoples. In a single day the Maui visitor can experience a tropical beach and an alpine meadow; lush rainforest and cactus-studded desert. Evenings can be spent in a high-energy resort nightclub or at a remote campsite illuminated by a full Maui moon. Take your choice, or better yet, choose them all. But remember - no matter what your preference you are sure to encounter the hallmark of Maui's most popular and enduring attraction - the open-hearted and generous Aloha Spirit that makes any Maui destination a visitor's delight.

While it might seem easy to argue that all of Maui is a park, some of our Island's most special areas have been set aside for public use. Their locations range from the shoreline to the magnificent crater of Mt. Haleakala, pictured at the right. Prized, and protected, by Mauians, our parks are also popular visitor attractions. Some of Maui's parks provide for overnight camping. Some are equipped with amenities that include showers, restrooms, tent camping areas, fire pits and more. Others are more pristine and are more appropriate for experienced outdoor adventurers. In some cases parks are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
