Big Island - Hawaii's Heiau and History on Holiday



Description:

The Big Island of Hawaii has many cultural sights that provide insight into the lives, spirituality and values of the Hawaiian people. From the mysterious, unforgiving, fiery goddess to sacrificial war temples that were launching spots for island reunification, places of refuge for the hunted and insight to everyday life, sights are rich in cultural value. All sights still have significant value to Hawaiians. Etiquette requires that all visitors arrive with respect, enter with permission and depart with gratitude. It is also expected that all visitors keep voices low, avoid sitting, standing or stepping in areas except where designated.
