Tourism and commercialism doubtless played a role in hula 's development. I was surprised that Noelani a Hawaiian herself taught us a hula dance accompanied by an English song! Furthermore, the song 's lyrics presumptuously, albeit playfully, depicted the residents of Honolulu as the "Other" with repetitive use of the word "they." Noelani explained that tourists encouraged the hula to develop in certain ways rather than
When Hawaii is mention to any group, people generally tend to think about its performances, food, and environment. This is because Hawaii has maintained such an original culture that is so closely related to its indigenous people, that it stands out amongst the rest of the states. Due to the fact that Hawaii is a combination of immigrants and indigenous people, the blend allows the state to have an acculturation of many of its elements while preserving their cultural heritage. Amongst what is so beloved in their traditions, hula has maintained of vital part of Hawaiian customs overtime. Hula is performed in various other places as well including but not limited to many of the islands that are encompassed in Polynesia.
The flower leis are especially the most alluring things about the Hawaiian culture. Flower leis are one of Hawaiian culture's most recognizable customs. In Hawaiian culture the lei should be offered graciously with a kiss and removed in private. It is often considered rude if you remove it in front of the person who gave it to you. The Hawaiian language adds to the one of the interesting things in this culture. It is comprised of five vowels and eight consonants, this is the shortest alphabet in the world. Lastly, the hula. It is comprised of swaying the hips, graceful hands, and colorful costumes. It has two major forms the ancient, and the
The dancers are dressed in slightly more flamboyant white dresses yet a are still unified. The music is more heavily footed in African Caribbean style, as are the pelvic isolations and body contractions.
This is clearly a large part of Native American history so some people might find it really odd that there was nothing specific to this tribe about their music and how they performed it. According to the Power Point that my group made on tribes from the Southeast, music was used in this area for ceremonies and Powwows (see group presentation). Our Power Point says that instruments used in the music are mainly water drums, striking sticks, rattles, and cylinder drums (see group presentation). According to the Southeast Native Americans website it says that people in this region generally have the same religious beliefs and that religion is “animism”. Along with the basket making that the Chitimacha tribe takes part in, the people in the Southeast region also enjoyed pottery (Southeast Native Americans).
The story of the Hokulea, a model of the first canoes that brought the first Polynesians to Hawaii, is a story that restores cultural pride and history to Hawaiians. Her legacy was almost extinct, but survived and restored the relationship that society has with its island home. More than 600 years had gone by without seeing one of these canoes, until artist Herb Kane thought to build a sailing canoe just like the ones his ancestors sailed (Hokulea.com).
We were weeding and cutting trees at Hālawa Valley to walk up to see the pohaku. I learned how Native Hawaiians took care of their land, mālama ‘āina, and how they live together with the nature sources. Even the pohaku with carvings, as Native Hawaiian people did not carve the shape, but they carved additional parts. For instance, when Native Hawaiian people found the pohaku, which shape is similar to Kū, they added Kū’s hat and eye, which are missed. When they found the turtle shaped pohaku, they added eye to complete the shape. Native Hawaiian people did not cut down all the trees, but rather cut some, so that the plants don’t get overgrown. However, this sacred place got ruined by building H3. H3 divided sacred birth place for Native
The Zuni Lullaby illustrates a contrast with Plains singing to assist in confirming that there is not an individual style to Native American music. Through the Native American styles of music, repetition becomes a prominent feature. This is not because the Native Americans can’t find words to fit into the music, but because repetitions with slight variations are often too insignificant for outside listeners to notice.
This proposal is to help bring to life the Semester on the Appalachain, a semester long expedition on the Appalachian Trail for a group of ten participants, in order to provide an environment that can not be replicated in a typical classroom setting. In the proposal, it will provide research on the benefits of experiential and expedition education, improvement on psychological health, and organizations that run similar programs.
Hi Micquaya. When I think of mental health itself, I do not automatically think of people that are suffering from a psychological issue. Mental health to me is just your psychological status. Mental illness causes me to think a psychological issue. The two are not the same in my eyes. Mental health is just as important as physical health. Physical health is just the status but if I were to say a physical disability it is completely different. The ways to promote good mental health are numerous. Taking care of your body is definitely a good way. Many times our mental status is directly related to our physical health. I know for me, it is hard to think clear when I do not get enough sleep.
A mysterious and strange malady arrives in the small American town of Abida which can be found on an island off the coast of the New England region. The island is somewhat isolated, most political matters are handled locally between it's people, this is due to the islands history. The people of Abida are the final result of successful human amalgamation between slave and owner with many of which who still holds on to their eccentric ancestral beliefs that revolve around "the old ways". This causes many to rarely visit or leave the island and as a consequence Abida is flung into a realm of enigma lying beyond the fringes of the New Englander's conscience. Without the aid of the mainland however, the disease, which is referred to locally as "scourge" takes large sections of
