David Ige on Civil Rights
Follow the lessons offered by our host culture
We need to fulfill our obligations to our host culture whose sense of aloha influences everything we do. As we speak, the Hokule'a & its sister ship are sailing across the oceans to call for a more sustainable world.
Their voyage banner, Malama Honua,
means "to care for our earth." Living on an island, we know better than most that the limited resources of this planet must be protected if we are to thrive as a species. That is the lesson offered by our host culture. It is their gift to all of us.
