Hawaiʻi Life Styles invites the kauhale to the Aloha ʻĀina Film Series, to cultivate an informed perspective of Aloha ʻĀina through the medium of film. In "Pele's Appeal" two distinct perspectives are confronted head to head; proposed geothermal development in the upland forest of Puna offers a convenient source of energy, but is opposed by Kānaka Maoli and allies who revere Pele as an akua (living elemental deity) and an ancestor of some, and regard geothermal as a violation of Pele, and a desecration of Her domain. Join us to explore indigenous perspectives of maintaining an appropriate relationship and balance with our natural environment.Aloha ʻĀina is defined as a fond love of and for the land; furthermore, it embodies a reverence and respect for the land that is coupled by a dedication to preserving and continuing the natural resources for future generations
