What is the essence of being Hawaiian? What does aloha really mean?
I have noticed that the people here are very nice. Why are they so nice?
One Dutch man noticed that Americans are nice. But in Maui, they are even nicer. Could this be the essence of aloha?
Being nice, kind, and courteous to each other is very contagious. But aloha is more than that. It’s a warm, all-encompassing welcome to treat the other as you’d treat yourself.
I experienced aloha at the Wednesday evening show of George Kahumoku in the Aloha Theatre of the Napili Kai Beach Resort.
