First Nations Community Council members believe Native Americans and Native American cultures have a unique and vital role in revealing and growing spiritual relatedness between all people (including the four legged, the winged, the swimming, and the standing people) and Mother Earth.
We are Flowers of the Earth
Ancient Native Hawaiian Saying "Na Pua O Honua" (we are flowers of the earth), The people, and the fragrance is their personality of each one. Different yet sweet and intoxicating. Through that fragrance we spread our Aloha to all of creation. Aloha is the behavior taught to us by the creator so we can live in harmony and sweetness with each other. Mahalo.... Kauila
