Hawaiian History and Culture
Hawaii's many distinct customs are a reflection of the state's rich mix of ethnicities and accompanying cultural practices, most of which have been nurtured and preserved over a span of several centuries. Immigrants from Europe, the South Pacific, Asia and other parts of the world joined Hawaii society following English explorer Capt. James Cook's arrival in 1779 — most of them explorers, Christian missionaries, businessmen, whalers, plantation workers and, more recently, those simply seeking a better way of life. This convergence of foods, languages, religions and family values with the native Hawaiian culture has resulted in a blend of centuries-old traditions that today largely typifies the distinct character that is called the 'Hawaiian Island lifestyle.’

Hawaiian Language
The Hawaiian language is a beautiful gentle and melodic language that flows smoothly off the tongue.   Most Polynesian languages share the same roots, and many have common words.  Today, Hawaiian is spoken as an every day language only on the Island of Ni’ihau.

Hawaiian Music
The Hawaiian music reflects many changing moods. The easy sway of a hula dancers hips, the scent of an exotic flower or the awesome emotion felt when looking at an incredible ocean view, are all reflected in the music of the Hawaiian people.
