Ka'a'awa Valley

Ka'a'awa Valley (Kualoa Valley)

Located on O’ahu's windward coast, Ka'a'awa Valley, is the residence of kings. In Traditional Hawai’i, newborns of the ali'i (Hawaiian chiefs) were brought here and trained traditionally, in the art of politics, the arts of war and many other things. As Naviagtors passed this valley, they had to lower their sails, out of respect and the law.

Today The West. Tomorrow The World

Honolulu Codex

“Honolulu Codex”

One-color lithograph on tea-dyed paper.

Maya codices are the historical records of pre-Columbian Maya civilization. While almost all of these documents were destroyed by Spanish missionaries and conquistadors, a small handful have since been discovered scattered around the globe and named for the cities in which they were found. The Honolulu Codex is an imagined document of contact between the Maya and Polynesian navigators circa 1200AD. Both cultures, sophisticated and technologically advanced, are speculated to have made contact with one another.

"Mokulēʻia is home to one of the legal climbing crags on O’ahu. Difficult to get to and climb, it’s also home to Native Hawaiian plants and stunning views of the ocean. As climbers we are obliged to care for and protect the land we are so privileged to recreate on."- @nicolenakata_art

ʻIʻiwi foraging in Hāhāʻaiakamanu.

"Due to avian malaria scenes like this are becoming increasingly rare on Kauaʻi. This image was captured on a beautiful day on the Pihea trail in 2018. Since then ʻiʻiwi have nearly disappeared from the Island of Kauaʻi. Hawaiian birds face some incredible challenges in the coming decades, but through it all they are still here, and people are still fighting to save them."

ʻāpane lehua

Ohia’s sturdy wood was used to create weapons, kapa cloth beaters, boards for pounding poi, enclosures and statues; its leaves were used as a medicinal tea; and its flowers and its seeds fed native birds like the apapane and the now-extinct mamo, whose prized feathers—in colors similar to lehua blossoms—were also important adornments in hula and other ceremonies. When listening to traditional Hawaiian moolelo (stories), mele (songs) and oli (chants) about the land or the Gods, it’s almost impossible to avoid some mention of ohia or its lehua flowers. The hardy native ohia lehua is one of the first plants to recolonize otherwise barren lands blanketed in lava, and perhaps because of its ability to thrive in Pele’s creations.
