Kevin Herrera 9-23-14 3:00 pm My perspective of Hawaii is vivid due to the great beaches, luaus, and volcanoes that reflect in my memory from the many photos and brochures I've seen. It gives off that sense of adventure and self discovering. I live in a place where there are substitutes for Hawaiian food and the same topography. Ive always expected places like Hawaii to be different, where there is less urban environment and a much more traditional sense to living. Its more than likely to say that these reasons are why I would want to visit a place like this. Arriving from the airport, I am greeted with leis as a token of welcoming and right away you can feel that warm feeling of the “Aloha Spirit”. I begin to notice things such as the people, although I’ve assumed that there would only be native Hawaiians, there aren’t. The diverse asian population;Japanese, Chinese, filipino,and Vietnamese only adds a deeper understanding to the Hawaiian culture. The drive from the airport is relaxing as I’m beginning to see the scenery of the beach and the many hotels along it. I can see how warm and friendly the people are, smiles and cameras flashing. Now there is somewhat a lot of traffic, something I’m hoping I wouldn’t see. I know for a fact that Hawaii is a condense area, especially in Honolulu, but nothing I wouldn’t expect from watching the Discovery Channel or looking up Hawaii on google images. To make things better, the beach is a lot different from home. It turns out on some parts of the island, there are black sand beaches due to the molten rock of the lava and then you have your sandy white beaches. The water is fairly clear and the different types and colors of the fish and coral are much different than California. You wont be able to find those huge kelp forests too and the water is warm all year round. There are many other tourist attractions that don't really have to do with the geography of the location. Pearl harbor for example is one of the many famous WW2 locations that tourists are allowed to visit. My family had just decided to rent a jeep to not only to visit Pearl…
Soon after the bombing of Pearl Harbor, December 7, 1941, Hawaii was considered as a potential war zone at risk of invasion, rebellion, and possible refugees. The territorial government began to realise that Hawaii was in danger and suspended the writ of Habeas Corpus - the constitutional protection against being imprisoned or detained without judicial approval - therefore it was imperative that Hawaii went under Martial Law. Lieutenant General Walter C. Short, Military commander of Oahu, declared…
Hawaii (i/həˈwaɪ.iː/ or /həˈwaɪʔiː/; Hawaiian: Hawaiʻi Hawaiian pronunciation: [hɐˈvɐiʔi]) is the most recent of the 50 U.S. states (joined the Union on August 21, 1959), and is the only U.S. state made up entirely of islands. It is the northernmost island group in Polynesia, occupying most of an archipelago in the central Pacific Ocean.
Hawaii’s diverse natural scenery, warm tropical climate, abundance of public beaches and oceanic surrounding, and active volcanoes make it a popular destination…
strong option for the rejuvenation of the Hawaiian culture. Because tourism is the main source of revenue in Hawaiʻi, it can be concluded that people all over the world recognize this predicament and come here for jobs in the tourism industry. Those who are hired are not always familiar with the Hawaiian culture and are just here for a job. This often results in a Western interpretation of what Hawaiʻi is due to the lack of knowledge of the local culture. By simply encouraging employees to familiarize…
Having lived in Alaska since I was born, my state has become very well known to me. Having yet to travel outside of my home much, I knew very little about the vast differences and extreme similarities that Alaska and Hawaii share. Recently vacationing in Hawaii, I found it astonishing how familiar it seemed and yet how foreign it felt. The natural beauty that both states have inherited through years of evolution is amazing and breathtaking however, the differences in climate is truly astonishing…
and has some sort of culture that they live by, but do you know exactly what influences our culture? There are many things that we do not consider that could change our culture. One word that made this whole thing a possibility is globalization.
Globalization is the process of enabling financial and investment markets to operate internationally. So with that being said, globalization is a big subject to talk about and it could forces change in this world and your culture in a second. For example…
Vintage Hawaiian Pottery
The most exquisite form of art is the kind that enchants you with its beauty, and eases the struggles that may consume one’s daily life. Coping with my internal self by expressing myself through art and writing have always come easy for me. Pottery, for me, is a whole other experience. Before I learned the techniques, I used to become overwhelmed and stressed with my work. However, this year I found a topic of interest that helps me reflect upon myself. Vintage Hawaiian…
