#repost of 2 years ago #sharealoha of our collective Ohana bonds. Now why should the flood get rid of Hawaiians? #them I ask, “ ...
... Did kalo survive?
Why have you not seen the up and down Hawaiian grown frowns become laughter in a flood? You may helped, but did you stop whining? Share the Lead, Like Nēnē Geese? If one is falling behind or needs rest , the next takes the lead , and the willed accompanies the one short of breathe till they are both ready . The flock continue to prevail awaiting the return . Not every family in Hawaij gets to leave their own moku, barely the time to leave their own ahupuaa because they chose the obligations of their loved ones or prevails to cover for the work flow. Thankful Tutu was on the right end of the bay with the rest of them, as another tutu returns to watch my own tag alongs. When leaders and love ones pass, we must take that space and believe. We all share the duties, and learn submission so others can also continue on. Believe in respect , and each other. Sometimes to make sure others do continue, if those choose to give up , so harder work can be done, the committed share the duties. Menehune use to behead chiefs if they came snooping and cause drama within the work time frame, intellectually try to control everything to his liking before the Work was done or interupt training to nurture core skills into their children , land and efforts of working communication . Sometimes this great big wall of trees and stone is to keep people in and not just out...for the lesson, to teach the lesson , help bend the lesson, merely to make enough working space. Mahalo to the makaainana and mahiai , watchtowers and farmers that are taking the lead of safety, communication , security and space for the love of all our children and future children - micro or macro, plant or animal. Sharing the duties and hosting with those that love you, disrespect and despise you...takes patience. #webelieve#chainreaction#makaainana#lovestories#makaainanareserve#preservation#conservation#sharethelead#kauaiflood2018#shithappens -inset @auntylouisetutu #awagirl (@keala_lopez to the side) #wainiha -taroist #manawainiha -via @maliaandcompany
#22abril Día Mundial de la tierra
El Día de la Tierra es un día especialmente seleccionado en el año (22 de abril) para celebrar la importancia de nuestro planeta Tierra y para dar a conocer información y datos sobre su cuidado y preservación. El establecimiento del Día de la Tierra tuvo lugar el 22 de abril del año 1970 en Estados Unidos, pero con el tiempo esta celebración se volvió cada vez más internacional y actualmente se festeja a nivel global con diverso tipo de ceremonias, actos y eventos. Es un día en el que la humanidad se une a reflexionar sobre el lugar en el que vive y a pensar qué se puede hacer para evitar que la Tierra se siga destruyendo.
Se puede decir que desde el establecimiento del Día de la Tierra en 1970 el activismo ecológico comenzó a ganar más y más espacio en los diferentes espacios públicos. Hoy en día, la reflexión sobre el cuidado del medio ambiente generada por el acto impacto que las actividades humanas han tenido sobre el mismo es central no sólo en términos del público general si no también en las agendas de los grandes políticos. El Día de la Tierra se organiza con mucha anterioridad y actualmente posee una bandera y una simbología específica que sirven para reconocer uno de los días más importantes para el mundo entero.
El Día de la Tierra no es sin embargo un día en el que se realizan actos conmemorativos y simbólicos simplemente. Por el contrario, es un día en el cual se insta a todos lo ciudadanos y, especialmente, a los diferentes gobiernos, a tomar actitudes más ecológicas y a preservar el medio que nos rodea. De todas maneras, las agrupaciones ecológicas trabajan todo el año para lograr que los políticos y las personalidades más influyentes del mundo aseguren cambios positivos en el medio ambiente. La selección de un día particular para celebrar tal situación tiene que ver con la necesidad de hacer pública la reflexión y el debate específicos sobre el futuro de nuestro planeta.
The bison has long been a symbol of the West in the US and Canada. But they are much more. They were the the center of life for indigenous people of the Great Plains. Bison provided everything from meat to tools to shelter for the first peoples of western North America. But they were hunted to near extinction by the US government and hunters employed by the railroads to remove them from impeding the paths of “manifest destiny” and also to starve Native hunters and their families and force them on to reservations. Their populations from Alaska to northern Mexico, from the Appalachians to the Rocky Mountains once numbered between 20-30 million. By the late 1800s, though, their range had been reduced significantly, and they numbered less than 1100 animals. Today they number about half a million, but many of them have been cross-bred with cattle. The number of pure bison is much lower.
Humans learned of the bison’s critical role in the ecosystem when in the 1870s trillions of locusts swarmed crops and farms and farmers across the Great Plains. It seems that locusts were able to reproduce and survive in much larger numbers when the hooves of millions of roaming bison were not trampling them and their eggs across the grasslands of the Midwest and West.
On this Earth Day let us remember the North American bison (both prairie and woodland) as important symbols of endurance, of nature’s ability to resist man’s will and to survive. They, like other animals around the world, are living lessons to us—if we choose to observe and learn. They are not objects to be removed, but fellow living beings with an important role alongside us; they are fellow animals to be respected and protected.

A beautiful by one of our @oneoceanglobal ambassadors @imarcus_gomes 🤙🏼 Mahalo for an awesome caption regarding how sharks may hold the key to skin cancer prevention, how interesting! 🦈❤️
Free Diving with some of the most intelligent predators in the ocean. To this day it is difficult to put into words how I felt being in the presence of so many Galapagos and sandbar sharks who were also aware of my presence. @oneoceandiving . .
An Interesting thing about sharks is that they can actually tan like us but without risk of skin cancer. In a study by Christopher Lowe from the CSULB Shark lab at California State University, they observed young hammerhead sharks tan from light tan to dark brown or black. Noticing changes in melanin densities but not growth or lesions which are associated with skin cancer has led scientists to believe that sharks may hold the answers to preventing skin disease in humans. @oneoceanconservation @oneoceaneducation @oceanramsey @juansharks @oneoceanglobal @waterinspired

Today is 🌍 Earth Day 🌏. My hope is that the crazy #instalove for #houseplants one day transfers to a wider love for the natural world. I see too much destruction of the beautiful planet we live on. I'm hopeful that the human race can care again. Get out and explore today! Share it with the hashtag #beatsplantsearthdayexploration
Some of the beauty captured here by 📷: @postcardfromaustralia (thank you for sharing your love of the planet).
The little Somesville Selectmen’s Building was built c. 1780 and was later moved to its current location in the center of the village. The eye-catching arched bridge was built over 2 centuries later, but the pair “just work,” and now seem like they were meant to be.
