  1. 1. Kanaka Maoli By Anna, Margo, and Ellie
  2. 2. Culture Basics <ul><li>         Health </li></ul><ul><li>      In ancient times, Hawaiians had a very healthy life style.It included a healthy diet, fitness from labor and sport, and a thorough personal hygiene. Health was a result of  right and living. Illness was an aspect of life spiritually, mentally, and physically. Hawaiians treat the physical body with herbal medicines. Massage, hydrotherapy, and manipulation are some ways to make a diagnosis. One way of learning anatomy was using a pebble diagram in the form of a body. </li></ul><ul><li>         Language   </li></ul><ul><li>      Their languages are: Hawaiian, English, Hawaiian Pidgin English. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Culture Basics continued <ul><li>             Religion </li></ul><ul><li>    Their religion is Protestant, Roman Catholic.Here are some of the traditonal gods: </li></ul><ul><li>Papa or Humea is the goddess, Earth Mother who created the planets and islands. </li></ul><ul><li>There is Wakea is the god the creator of the sky, and planted all the plants on land. </li></ul><ul><li>Ku is the Generator of power. Ku and Hina, his wife were the second two gods in Hawai'i. </li></ul><ul><li>Hina is the Godess of growth </li></ul><ul><li>Kane is the The god of : Sunlight, Fresh Water, Forests The ancestor of cheifs, and some Familes that were commoners. Kane and Kanola his good friend were the first gods to arrive in Hawai'i. </li></ul><ul><li>Kanaola is the God of deeper sea, usually represented as a giant squid good friend of Kane </li></ul>
  4. 4. Culture Basics continued <ul><li>Lono is the God of agriculture, clouds, the surface of the sea, helper with financial of the Makaiki harvest festival. His image was on the Makaiki tax-collectin unit. </li></ul><ul><li>Milu is the god of the underworld. </li></ul><ul><li>          Food </li></ul><ul><li>  Kalo </li></ul><ul><li>     A long time ago and still now, kalo was the main food represented by other official handed down foods such as breadfruit (Hawai'ian translation='ulu), sweet potato (Hawai'ian translation='uala), yams, greens, ferns, fruit, fish, and seaweed (Hawai'ian translation=limu). With the different types of kalo, all of the hardy and critical parts are eaten in some way or another. One type called the tubers are consumed by being baked, steamed, boiled, or cooked then crushed with water and then you get poi. It can be cooked into a form like spinach by using the leaves. The quality poi  is made by the starchy root combined with the riht amount of glutinosity. The hardest poi  is called the &quot;one fingers&quot; and the one with the most liquid is called &quot;three finger.&quot; There's one in the middle called &quot;two fingers&quot; considered the best by some. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Culture Basics continued <ul><li>     The people who planted, knew exactly what kalo was the best. They knew which one has the most sensitive leaves, or which one has the best and most critical medicine needs. For a baby's first whole and healthy meal, they give them kalo. The elderly also eat this because the good vitamins and it's easy to digest. Since kalo is a reuseable plant, the root/base was spared for eating and cooking. All the parts of kalo are cooked before eaten because of the calcium oxalate crystals that are in the leaves, root, and stem. The mouth and throat can be super annoying and painful from a burning acid that makes it sting like crazy.  </li></ul><ul><li>     The kalo plant leaf that you can eat is called the lu'au and it was from the lau leaf. It provides a nice amount of the vitamins A, B, and C. It also provides them with iron, phosphorus, calcium, thiamine, and riboflavin. The cooked corm and cooked poi have less vitamins in it but they are still great carbohydrates and it also can level out the body's pH factor, and the food is alkali producing. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Culture Basics continued <ul><li>Diet </li></ul><ul><li>    Ola is the Hawai'ian way to say health. Health and life was the word one and same. They believed that you needed health to live and life for health. They believed when you were in harmony that you were healthy spiritually, mentally, and physically. </li></ul><ul><li>    The people were muscular, tough and able of bringing forth a lot of fatigue fatigue.Those people were fishermen, farmers, hunters, and gatherers who loved a variety of foods. The people planted and watered taro areas, they prepared yams, arrowroot, and breadfruit. They killed the birds and pigs, and collected vines, ferns, herbs and medicinal plantsfrom the forests. The people also did net and deep sea fishing, they collect the shrimp, picked seaweed, and shellfish. They mainly ate fish, squid, limpet, crab, other seafood, chickens, and birds.The vegetables they ate were taro tops, and the plants you can eat like trre fern and fan palm. The people ate many foods like, bananas, coconuts, raspberries, strawberries, mountain apple, and sugar cane. Kukui nut, seaweed, hoio fern, and salt were where the seasonings would come from.They saved </li></ul>
  7. 7. Culture Basics continued <ul><li>food by using salt, but most of the food was eaten fresh anyway.THe people ate dogs and royalty, or alii, ate pigs. </li></ul><ul><li>    A sticky purple mash, known as poi, is made from crushed and beaten taro root has the most starch in it to the Hawai'ians. Poi is the healthiest carbohydrate in Hawai'i. </li></ul><ul><li>    They were fit and healthy then. A Hawai'ian's traditional meals and diet were considered the best in the world. It was an easy diet to them that contained high starch, a big amount of fiber, not that much saturated fat, not that much sodium, and a low cholesterol diet. If their diet had a pie chart, it would have 12% protein, 18% fat, and 70% carbohydrates.  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>Luau Traditional Holiday Feast </li></ul><ul><li>    It's a Hawai'ian celebration to feast on the achievements, be greatful for the important people, and remember great events. It was a time to give respect to old gods by singing, dacing, and giving them foods, even though it was often rare. It used to last for days. Women were able to eat that once they couldn't have like bananas, coconuts, pork, turtle, and different types of fish. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Culture Basics continued <ul><li>         Cloth </li></ul><ul><li>    Mud (from where taro grows) was  made into black dye for luahala and kapa cloth, and some juice from th leaf-stem made other colored dye like red. Watered poi was used like glue to make pieces of kapa cloth stick. </li></ul><ul><li>          Healing </li></ul><ul><li>    They had a very healthy way to live which had a healthy eating, physical health by hard work and playing sports, and a good way of thinking about self cleanliness. It was acknowledged from right, or pono, and dwelling. An unbalance in some way of life even if it's mental, spiritual, or physical. </li></ul><ul><li>    The physical body is treated with herbal medicines because Hawai'ians are experts in them. The medical kahuna used very mindful observations and examinations when producing an identification to the sickness. They used herbs along with a manipulation, massage, bone placing, and warmth or hydrotherapy. It took a very long time to become a healer, sometimes even decades, even though they have an intense training sessions. There's one way of learning anatomy and the symptoms included using a pebble diagram </li></ul>
  9. 9. Culture Basics continued <ul><li>(Hawai'ian translation=papa 'ili 'ili), spread out like a body. Every healing process contained a big spiritual parts along with chants and prayers with each step of bringing plants to the ceremony at the end of the care from the treatment. </li></ul>
  10. 10. Land <ul><li>     There are 5 parts in Maui. There are West Maui, South Maui, Central Maui, Upcountry Maui, and East Maui.  There is a volcano called Haleakala that covers the southeastern part of Maui with a hole 3,000 feet deep and 21 miles wide. On Maui's side sheltered from the wind, you'll find beaches along the western coast. On the rainy side of Maui you'll find a lush lao Valley.  </li></ul>
  11. 11. Climate and Seasons <ul><li>     In Hawai'i their seasons are Summer and Winter. Summer time is when the sun is above them and the air is warmer and drier.In the winter the sun is more south and the weather is cooler. The winter months are from October to April.

Summer is in the low-90s. </li></ul><ul><li>     It's usually drier on the side of Maui that's sheltered by the wind. The side sheltered by the wind doesn't rain as much on the northeast, wetter side. The wetter side of the island gets over 400 inches of rain every year in some mountain parts of the island. </li></ul>
  12. 12.          Climate and Seasons continued <ul><li>     The warmer months of </li></ul><ul><li>the year are June,July,August </li></ul><ul><li>  and September.That is also  </li></ul><ul><li>when they get the least amount  </li></ul><ul><li>of rainfall. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>       This graph shows that their </li></ul><ul><li>average temperature is staying in  </li></ul><ul><li>around the 80's.The red shows that </li></ul><ul><li>June,July,August, and September </li></ul><ul><li>have the highest low temperatures. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul>
  13. 13. Plants and Animals <ul><li>        Kalo </li></ul><ul><li>     A plant in Hawai'i is called the Kalo. Kalo can also be called taro. Kanaka Maoli people are closely linked with Kalo. Kalo can also be called Taro. Kalo is the greatest source of food.In the Kumulipo, a spiritual chant,  says that Kalo grew from the first son of the sky father, Wakea, and the earth mother, papa, from the relation of his and papa's daughter, Ho'ohokulani. The son was named, Haloa-naka, was dead at birth and buried. The Kalo plant grew from his body and Kalo is also called Haloa (It means everlasting breath). Two means for the Hawai'i people of survival are Kalo and poi, mashed up Kalo. Eating poi one after another as a ceremony at the 'umeke, or the poi bowl, in the middle of a dining place, the customs of Hawai'i continues. This helps people come together and helps family get a better relatoinship and greater respect for the ancestors. The Kanaka Maoli people could use over 300 kinds of kalo. Taro was a healthy juicy plant, that had bunches of extended of long leaves in the shape of a heart or arrowhead, pointed down. Chiefs had special kalo that they ate. It was reserved for them because of the special flavor and color. </li></ul>
  14. 14. Plants and Animals continued <ul><li>           Medicine </li></ul><ul><li>    There are also many medical uses for kalo and poi. If poi is mixed with arrowroot starch then it can be used to settle the stomach. You can also eat that if you have diarrhea. If you burn yourself, they mixed poi with ripe noni fruit. Not watered poi can be used to dress infected sores. If you're bleeding, to make it stop, you put the haha, or kalo stem, to the skin where it's bleeding. Putting taro leaves mashed with Hawai'i salt, will make some infections heal. You can also use the stem to help an insect sting, by cutting the stem and rubbing the sting. This way of dressing a wound can be put on to an injury, then stays by putting a big taro leaf around the dressing. </li></ul>
