Earth Dance Hawaii


An amazing festival. We were Queen and King for a weekend, learning about our people, loving, laughing, being taken care of in amazing ways. Our kingdom is amazing.


The first look…

I forgot to post this picture. When Ricardo and I first got to the Island and had our first day off work we went to the beach. We just went, we had to find water. We had been in Hawaii a week and had not seen the ocean! So we hitchiked down volcano and got dropped off in Pahoa. We walked threw the town to the last stop light and hitched toward the beach…our ride told us that we needed to head to Kahania beach, he said there were people like us there. We were dropped off in the middle of Mango Drive, a curvy one lane road threw huge mango trees and jungle. It was beautiful, but we still had no idea where we were or how far we had to go. We walked for a long time, got a short ride and than walked some more. Our first taste of the ocean was when the road finally curved by the water and we ran threw the palm trees to the beach. we only stayed for a few minutes so we did not miss our ride, but we touched the water and saw the breath taking coast. We did finally make it to Kahania, played in the waves, and met some good people. It is now ‘church’, we go to the drum circle every sunday, enjoy the sun, waves, kids, and amazing brothers and sisters, share beautiful food from our land, and listen to the drums. Blessed.

a few more shots from the walk…

The moon is real.


Slow waves

This is at the beach 2 miles from our farm. A long exposure of the amazing waves on the lava rock by the hot pond…

special trip to the black sands.


After the rain…

Our farm is full of beautiful things…


Camping with the turtles.

We went camping at a little black sand beach past the volcano. Ricardo found an amazing camp site on a lava rock cliff. You could see miles of beach in front of us, and beautiful mountains behind us. we spent all day Wednesday layin on the beach with some amazing green sea turtles. It was perfect.
