Throughout the Hawaiian Islands, people honor a deep and ancient connection with kai-the ocean. In Hawaii the oceans gifts of beauty and inspiration are everywhere-from the shorebreaking lapping at out feet to coral reefs building new life offshore, from the traditional knowledge of native healers to the honu, the green sea turtle, waving aloha with the splash of a flipper. In Kai: Ocean Wisdom from Hawaii author and ocean lover Renata Provenzano has gathered saltwater people from across the Islands-artists, healers, surfers, ocean scientists, cultural practitioners and many others-each honoring the ocean as the primal source of creation, discovery, art, recreation, ecology and spirituality. Here is the infinite wisdom of the ocean, captured in a blend of spectacular photography and the heartfelt words of Hawaiis people.
