When I first arrived in Hawaii during the seventies, I instantly fell in love with the beauty of the fresh verdant island, the inviting sky blue ocean waters and its warm people. It wasn’t very long when I came to be very interested in the history of these enchanting native souls and their traditional culture.

This fiery passion for this place and its people has led me to research the origin of the very first settlers of Hawaii. And this is how I learned about the Polynesian voyagers from the Marquesas Islands who came to discover this paradise.
