Molokai - Return to Pono

489

Dedicated to the kupuna of Molokai who have kept the ancient wisdom and stories alive. After years of degradation, the small Hawaiian island of Molokai is working to reestablish ecological and social balance, sustainability and self-governance. Not simply "fighting" development, but looking to create economic engines that compliment and enhance the island's unique lifestyle, culture and natural resources. The effort will be successful only if they look to the lessons of the past and revive the values that once made ancient Molokai great. "Ho`i i ka Pono" = to return to pono... a state of being physically and spiritually in accord with the sacred; correct living; righteousness; balance; abundance; wealth.
