Formed from two shield volcanoes and scattered northward across the Pacific Ocean about 1.5 million years ago, a tsunami in the mid-twentieth century wiped out fields of lo'i (taro) leaving behind the highest sea cliffs in the world. On three sides, steep pali (cliff walls) create the deep valley of the island and intermittently hide and reveal slender waterfalls.
Molokai is old Hawaii, an undeveloped place of cathedral valleys, soaring sea cliffs, and ancient secrets. Throughout time, it has been revered for the wisdom and religious prestige of its people. When the Polynesians first arrived from the South Pacific about 1,500 years ago, fertile land, mountain waters, and abundance of food from the sea and the land provided sustenance for the oldest known Hawaiian settlement in the Halawa Valley. Today, meandering rock walls reveal forgotten heiau (temples) and are the only archaeological evidence of this 7th-century settlement. With no written language during this period, most of its history has come from chants, stories, and dances passed down from generation to generation.
Hawaiians believe that everything is a living thing and one must seek the answer from nature. This place is full of Mana where every rock has a tale. You are surrounded by life and can feel the intensity.
