The Future Lies in the Past – Who We Were, Who We Are, Who We Want to Be



Hawaiian people have always understood our existence as being rooted across the dimensions of time – past, present, future. We honor our past because we are always connected to our ancestors who came before us; we honor our present because all that we are today is endowed by the legacy of our ancestors; and we honor our future because we carry forth the collective lived experience across the dimensions of time and space, upon which we build future generations.



Due to colonization and globalization, and its resultant cultural-historical trauma, these sacred islands and our native people have been transformed by a new world order in which we are challenged to situate ourselves in this important paradigm. Who were we as a people in the early days of our first haole encounters? How did we evolve in our social and cultural relations as we came to understand this way of life with people who were so different than us? And where are we today as we navigate towards a future for our moʻopuna?



"It is as if the Hawaiian stands firmly in the present, with his back to the future, and his eyes fixed upon the past, seeking historical answers for present-day dilemmas." (Kameʻeleihiwa, 1992)
