What does Mālama Honua really mean to the of the world? How do we take care of and protect everything that makes up our world: lands, oceans, living beings, cultures, and communities? We need to take care of our limited resources as though we are living on a canoe in the open ocean. On a canoe, water, food, plants, and other basic needs are in limited supply and thus are tended to with great care.

Earth’s resources are also in limited supply, so we must tend to them in kind. Come hear about sustainability practices around the world and learn what we can do here in Hawai‘i.

This program is part of a series of presentations that coincide with Bishop Museum’s Holo Moana: Generations of Voyaging exhibit in the Long Gallery from Nov. 4, 2017 thru June 24, 2018.

Traditions of the Pacific is made possible through generous support from Hawai'i Tourism Authority and the Tommy Holmes Foundation and in partnership with Polynesian Voyaging Society.
