If you’ve lived in Hawaii for any amount of time, it’s not difficult to notice that Native Hawaiian’s are very sensitive about their culture. Embarrassingly enough I’ve been here long enough to remember my early childhood years I even thought I WAS Hawaiian. I digress. The point about this project was that we had to spend hours and hours of time making sure the imagery and message of this site remain respectful to their culture. We were later recognized for our efforts by being awarded a Certificate of Merit plaque from the Hawaii Tourism Authority for this website. I have a proud koa plaque on my wall to show for this rare acknowledgement.
