You are supposed to respect the Aina, the land. You are supposed to respect the culture which the Hawaiians are attempting to bring back, after it was destroyed almost two centurys ago. You are supposed to respect the fact that you are a visitor and do not have much claim to the land, the resources or the culture. Sure, shake a shaka, suck em up, brah! and Aloha all are available for your usage, the problem is most who use them have no idea of the history behind the icons which define Hawaiian culture.

As far as hiking alone ... where can or should you be able to do that? It was not wise for the victim to be alone...anywhere in the world. I am not blaming the victim, but her choices were poor and she apparently paid for them with her life. So sorry, but it could (and does) happen anywhere. Badness exists and you had better protect yourself against it.
The locals DO have love to show to outsiders. You just have to be able to fit in in order to experience it. You cannot blow over on a jet and expect things to be all Main Street USA like it is where you come from. You have to adopt their ideals, walk in their slippahs for a mile, etc. Then you can know and love Hawaii.

Respect the land huh? That's it? Yea, it's a shame how the visitors are always leaving their junk refrigerators, washing machines, furniture and other things out in the middle of the fields and on the side of the road. Amazing that they can get all that stuff on an airplane and bring it here huh? LOCALS dont respect the land AT ALL. Hell, you cant even recycle on this island, something that is and has been common on the mainland for the last 15 years. I have lived all over the USA and hiking is not a dangerous pastime. Some psycho M-F ers killed that poor woman and the LOCALS are all hiding the facts from the cops. Someone knows something, but the "bruddahs" are all sticking together. Skumbags should be cleaned out like cockroaches.

Nice rant. My experiences with Hawaiians have been different than yours. Best of luck, my friend.

Is the land before Jaws owned by the pineapple company? Is the hike down to the beach easy or difficult? Is the road before the cemetary paved, and is there a mile marker that I can look for? I live on Maui and want to take photos. Is the beach far from where the waves break? Thanks for any info you can give. BTW, there are bad people everywhere, but I have never met anyone here that I did not get along with.
