The Hawaiian tradition was oral with no written form until the arrival of the missionaries in the 1700’s, and this ancient form of storytelling unique to the Hawaiian Islands was how they shared the legends and stories of a culture grounded in love, gratitude, blessing and forgiveness as a way of living—what they call “the Aloha Spirit”.
Those residents who have had the opportunity to visit the Hawaiian Islands will find themselves relieving their pleasant memories of when they were there.
