If we prevail in defending and upholding Kauai law, the island's children will be safer and healthier. And for many island parents -- like parents everywhere -- a healthy family is all the paradise they need.
PAN supported Kauai's new law before it passed and we are joining efforts to ensure it remains intact. And we're proud to stand with the people most affected by pesticide drift, including the Ka Makani Ho'opono hui (The Wind That Makes Right Association).
As spoken by the native people of Hawai'i, to be "pono" is to be in balance, to do what is right from your mana'o, the gut or deep awareness of true self. This concept has been practiced by Hawai'ians throughout their ancient culture.
Though Kaua'i is far from the humming hustle of Waikiki, there is plenty to do -- it's just so relaxing, you don't want to. Regardless, we snorkeled, tubed, zipped, rode in an open cockpit Bi-Plane... and were welcomed as dignitaries by local folklorist and Hula Empressario Lopaka.
