Hidden Oahu - Not the Usual Tour
Jan 29, 2016 09:52AM
Kahu Angela Pohakuola Studer takes people to out-of-the-ordinary places, showing them how to approach these areas with respect for the sacredness present. Participants visit off-the-beaten-path locations as well as places people may drive by but not realize the special nature that lies within. Kahu Angela’s wisdom comes from her Cherokee ancestry combined with Hawaiian spirituality and her love for the pohaku (rocks) that have spoken to her since childhood.
These tours are for people looking for a deeper understanding of Hawaiian spirituality and culture on Oahu and that want to learn the protocol for visiting sacred sites. The tours are intimate, cultural and easy paced. The selection of sites to be included in a tour is determined by the group and based on whether a full or half day is planned.
Each tour includes an explanation of the special importance and uses of the ti leaf, the opportunity to make a ti leaf bracelet, and the importance of ho’okupu (offering a proper gift at sites in exchange for mana or life force).
