I really don't want to pay respect to a high chief anytime he feels like it....sorry but that's not me. look everywhere people are changing so adapt.....amen
  • Thank you for your response. Although... Forgive me Gladiator but I fail to follow your comment. Could you please elaborate on your response.
  • what is there to intricate? you have all the details.....
  • Marry me if you love me. If no more love kick me out.
    Please don't take the car and the house. That's my sweat money.
  • Our culture: We all have a background, ancestors, traditions. They may be old but they are not "primitive."
    You can be a modern person with a good education, computer skills, speak English well, but if you ignore your traditional culture, language and your relatives, you are losing so much. You can have both.
  • Your native/indigenous language is one of the most important part of your cultural identity. Your material culture (anything that is tangible - 3-dimensional crafts like baskets, model canoe, canoe paddle, wall decorations, etc..., even 2-dimensional artworks such as painting/photos of your island is another that goes hand-in-hand with your native language. So before you leave the island to reside/study abroad, make sure you have something from your island to show-and-tell where you come from. Music is another, attire/outfits (traditional and/or contemporary clothing; traditional foods/cooking and don't forget your traditional customs, esp., respect to others, elders, the disabled, etc...and I'm sure many others that identify you as a pacific islander.
