KS Online Resources
Our ancestors knew the true value of comprehensive knowledge, and they also understood the vast array of places in which knowledge and wisdom could be found. There is an old saying, "All knowledge is not taught in one school." Knowing this, whenever our kūpuna planned to travel abroad to the far corners of the earth, they would stop at various locations along the way to pick up supplies and food before heading out into the unknown waters. It was also known that certain currents would take a person to certain locations, so you could not, for example, set out to Tahiti directly from O'ahu without some difficulty…a more wise approach would be to use the Kealaikahiki channel of the coast of Kaho'olawe.
We use this analogy because we understand that not all knowledge is contained within our website. There are many centers of learning. Here, you will find links to other KS websites where more Hawaiian wisdom and traditional knowledge can be found.
