Honor Ancestral Stories

This huakaʻi, or excursion, has been carefully designed by a Hawaiian Kumu, a respected cultural practitioner whose traditional role in the community was to record and pass on the history, traditions, cultures and stories of the Hawaiian people through oral tradition. This charter combines aerial sightseeing and on-the-ground experiences which embrace the rich cultural heritage of the Kohala and Kona coasts of Hawai’i Island. Honor the ancestral stories of Hawai’i by learning about and participating in the host culture’s spiritual, historical, and oral traditions.
