"For a long time I had no male friends that I felt comfortable with, I ended up by hanging out with girls a lot. I just always felt that they weren’t treated with respect. Women are totally oppressed in small towns like Aberdeen. The words bitch and cunt were totally common; I mean, you’d hear them all the time. It took me years to realize that these were the things that were bothering me." - Kurt Cobain

Anonymous asked: Correct me if I'm wrong but are you not a native to the islands? Mad respect to you for loving our culture and embracing it. Yet you reposted that post as if you yourself know the true meaning behind it.

danielroyce:

I’m guessing this is in response to my reblog of eakawika's anon ask. that went like this.

Anonymous: how do you say “hula is life” or “dance to express” in hawaiian?

then Kawika goes "I’m not too comfortable translating to an anon. There is too much mana and kaona behind these things that need to be explained thoroughly and should be used for Pono reasons. I wouldn’t want to give out these words to someone who would just use them because it sounds cool."

So where do I even start? No, you’re right. I wasn’t blessed with the joy of being born from da aina nd living among it’s people since birth. That does not actually mean that I know nothing about about it. Yeah you can actually go off and call me a haole for growing up on the mainland that doesn’t differentiate the fact I grew up with family that has resided there for decades. A family that has grown with various elements so closely tired to that of the people. Tell me that I have not learned how to appreciate da aina and live within it’s domain respecting it all in its magnificence and beauty. That growing up around hula did not mean my cousin’s going to practice every saturday from 3-5, but that it grew into so much more. Growing to learning and appreciating the lessons from the kumu. The beauty, the history, the stories, the love and the strength of the people so resilient is what brings me to love Hawai’i nei.

In respect to others, we know there are people over there who grew up in its roots, in the sanctuary of it’s walls, and yet don’t respect the land. People who don’t fully take in the spirit of aloha, or even take it for granted. When I was little and would visit frequently the time spent away from Waiks and the time spent in Kaneohe in the soil is what I remember the most. Pounding kalo for the first time and being so proud of myself. Learning from my family the abundance of the land and thus harvesting from the soil that provides. My family back there don’t live frivolous lives, my uncle who used to direct a hospital in Waianae has honestly taught me the most about aloha. Not seeking return from others but serving those who need it the most. Being mindful of all that need help with a resourcefulness that can provide. Working without thought about money or reimbursement but with the humility to serve and the patience to do so.

I see things in my own perspective, just as how others see it how they do. But for you to come and tell me I don’t know the true meaning of it… please justify that. It was a reblog because I can empathize and understand where he is coming from. eakawika is a great resource and is going to be an amazing Hawaiian Language teacher when he’s pau. But it is that this person SEEMS to be just asking for a quick reference to translate something, okay but just like he said, are the reasons behind it for good use? Or is it something that “looks cool” so they can get a tatau of it? Big difference. And just as he said the mana and kaona behind words are so vast and expansive that the meaning would get lost in translation if it has not fully been understood nor taken in by the person asking. A perfect analogy of this would be the 20 something year old who gets chinese or japanese characters on their arm “because it looks cool”… NO, you know for damn sure the chinese people looking at that are confused, disgusted, and offended.

Just because I grew up on the mainland does not mean that I do not breathe in life and does not mean that I am completely mistaken. Falling in love with aloha & expressing it through caring for my patients, friends & family. Living each day with empathy, gladness, joy & caring or not at all. ”Do it with Aloha or not at all”, has become my own personal mantra. It’s more than just a greeting. It has become a way of life. A way of seeing things. Tell me now what you believe is the “true meaning behind it”.
