History And Culture
Who would not be wise on the path so long walked upon by my ancestors
-Ancient Cultural Wisdom
This possession of knowledge is the base root for the survival of our ancient culture for thousands of years on an isolated colony of islands anchored in the vast Pacific Ocean. Through a tradition of ocean voyaging, the Polynesians who landed on these shores brought remnants of their successor cultures - and after a long period of isolation, developed a culture that became very uniquely Hawaiian. Through an oral tradition of hula (dance), oli (chants), and mo'oku'auhau (genealogy), these treasured secrets have been handed down from generation to generation to preserve and perfect the lifestyle that complimented and coexisted within the nature of this rare island paradise.Native Hawaiian Owned and Operated
The AlakaÂ´i (guides) who accompany you on this horseback riding tour into the natural wonderland can trace their family roots back for hundreds of years. Here is the playground of the magical days of their youth. Days spent learning by doing, as they followed and imitated their Kupuna (elders) into these mountain valleys to gather food, medicines, and absorb the hidden meaning of this land of their ancestors. We are the direct descendents of the Hawaiians who were tied to this land before the coming of Western culture.
Let's take a horseback ride into the past - listen to our stories about the history of our ancestors as they lived, worshiped, and died in battles defending this land bequeathed to us by the Gods.
Here is the land of Ancient Hawaii.
Here you will participate with the living, dynamic culture of Hawaiian yesterdays.
