"Hey everyone,

I know it's been a long time since I've posted here. I wanted to shed some light on how best to support all of you, from what I have learned over the years. I know, if you want to grow with knowledge of our ocean, grow insight, and the different things that go along with that, you ought to learn things in line with Hawaiian culture. If you have any questions, don't be afraid to ask.

Also, I should explain to you how I think I can best assist. For myself, I'm just a "student" of Hawaiian things. More over, I am a supporter in this world of things Hawaiian. If I can find a way to help, I'll find alignment with in myself to support. However! I am by no means a kahuna. In my learned traditions, and in the traditions of hula, I am not a priest of someone who does blessing or a priest. Truthfully I don't perform blessing ceremonies similar to what i have done before. I am a practitioner of hula. I can show or describe to you how to do some things properly according to traditions. Also, I can support you with things like Hawaiian Language, and perspectives from a Hawaiian insight.

The important thing is to help convey to you, how I can support regarding insight of Hawaii and Polynesia.
