Definition

Values: are those things that really matter to each of us ... the ideas and beliefs we hold as special. Caring for others, for example, is a value; so is the freedom to express our opinions.

Hawaiian Translation: Nā Waiwai Hawai‘i


Example

shoes on the lanai

Shoes on the lanai.

Hawaiians feel that each person is only a part of the whole.  Being a good member of your ‘ohana is most the most important thing.  Native Hawaiian stress the interconnectedness of people and the land.

Wili says, "The importance of ‘ohana is a value that guides how I live my life: how I speak to my grandma, how I care for my brothers and sisters, how I share food with my neighbors."
