There is something about the Hawaiian house which defines the Hawaiian aesthetic. It is an image that has philosophical connotations, like the sense of being perfectly alright and possibly even beautiful just as you are; a sense of self respect and dignity regardless of contemporary values or trends; and the sense that living with respect for the land might be fundamental to being fully conscious and alive.
Ho Ihi Aina means Respect the Land.
