The beautiful native women of Hawaii perform their traditional dance in protest of a 30 meter telescope to be built on the sacred land of Mauna Kea, Hawai’i’s largest volcano. 🌋 The Native Hawaiian people have come to Mauna Kea for centuries to pray and to collect water from Lake Waiau, one of the highest alpine lakes in the U.S., for healing and ritual purposes. But in addition to its sacred serenity, Mauna Kea is imbued with other virtues: a prime location in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, perfect cloud formation, and ideal height, air temperature, solar radiation levels, and atmospheric conditions for stargazing. The construction of this telescope will also cause severe water contamination from hazardous chemicals such as hydrochloric-acid, motor oil, and pesticides. #maunakea  #hawaii  #hawaiian  #sacredland  #volcano  #pacificisland  #pacificocean  #hula  #native  #arrest  #telescope  #protest  #stolenland  #nation19  #apdta

Wo hast du dich bisher wie im Paradies gefühlt ? Schreib es mir in die Kommentare :) 2015 Auf Palmerston, einem Atoll der Cook Islands im Pazifik. Hier kommt alle 5 Monate Mal ein Versorgungsboot vorbei, um Notwendiges gegen gefangen Fisch und ein paar Kokosnüsse zu tauschen. Keine Touristen, kein Stress, kein Müll :) Das Wasser sieht wirklich so aus (wegen des weißen Sandes darunter) und das Bild ist komplett unbearbeitet. #nophotoshop  #nofilter  #noediting  #beach  #paradise  #pacificisland  #island  #insel  #trauminsel  #segeln  #sailing  #dream  #backpacking  #mit50euroumdiewelt  #aroundtheworld  #aroundtheworldon50bucks  #palmtrees  #islanddream  #palmerston  #frenchpolynesia  #pazifik  #welcometoparadise  #pasificocean  #französischpolynesien  #2015  #dream  #nostress  #whitesand  #whitebeaches  #beach  #palmisland

🏆 Ma’afu Suliafu, Director of PEAU. (@soledolce ) Our fearless (not to mention incredibly funny) leader, Ma’afu Suliafu. As Director of PEAU, Ma’afu has acted with great fervor on behalf of our Pacific Islander Arts Community. Since taking over leadership responsibilities, Ma’afu has brought the PEAU name into new arenas, all while establishing relationships with numerous local businesses, raising visibility in the Salt Lake City arts scene, and advocating for spaces dedicated to Pasifika Art and Pasifika Artists. He’s also an Artist! Last year, Ma’afu debuted traditional Pasifika women’s garments that he fashioned out of used, recyclable materials. A tribute to the resiliency of Pacific Islander women. Since then, he has created other pieces in the line, and is supposed to unveil his latest creation this weekend. In addition to working 3 other jobs, Ma’afu makes PEAU a priority because he believes in our community and the talents that are waiting to be recognized and given an opportunity to shine.

Beginning of Baining fire dance. The Baining were the original inhabitants of the region. They moved to the mountains when attacked by Tolai people. They lived in isolation from other tribes for generations and their rituals were kept hidden. Around the 1960s they started selling their cocoa crops to Tolai people. These were times when selling cocoa was very lucrative. The Baining were very timid but learned to interact with The Tolai. This is when their rituals started being performed outside of their territories. Early researches into Baining culture claim that there is no obvious connection between Baining way of life and fire dance. It is not a ritual related to the occasion. Whether it is a birth of a child, a boy coming of age or remembering the dead, it is always performed the same way, dancing barefoot through the fire. They overlooked the simple fact that the intention is to remind Baining younger generations that Baining people stay in close relationship with the spirits, represented by masks worn by dancers. Demand for Baining fire dance has been growing. It started emerging at missions, schools, various celebrations and eventually festivals where local and international visitors were ready to pay big money to watch the dance. The fire dance performed outside of its traditional context is losing sacredness and does not get as much respect as it deserves. #pacificculture  #PapuaNewGuinea  #pngculture  #pacificisland  #tribalphotography  #atlasofhumanity  #big_world_photo  #earthexclusive  #humanity_shots_   #ic_humans  #ig_global_people  #ig_portrait  #ig_respect  #lonelyplanet  #loves_united_people  #loves_united_portrait  #majestic_people  #natgeopeople  #people_creative_pictures  #people_infinity  #peoplecreatives   #peopleinframe  #peoplephotography  #photo_storee_people  #planetearth  #remoteexpeditions  #rometheplanet  #sight_people  #splendid_people  #worldmastershotz_portraits 

Baining people are considered by many researchers to be the dullest culture on Earth because of "hard work no play" approach. How is this dull? On the photo, the tribesman is walking in a very elaborate costium through the fire barefoot.

Baining tribe may be one of the most misunderstood people in the world. Their fire dance according to anthropologists is not rooted in any deeper belief. It is not related to initiation rites or harvest celebrations. Then, why? Walking through fire may be an act of conquering nature. The Baining tribe despises nature. They thing nature is chaotic and dangerous. They work hard growing their crops as work is perceived as an act of defeating nature. They dress up as spirits because spirits reside in all leaving things, nature. #pacificculture  #PapuaNewGuinea  #pngculture  #pacificisland  #tribalphotography  #atlasofhumanity  #big_world_photo  #earthexclusive  #humanity_shots_   #ic_humans  #ig_global_people  #ig_portrait  #ig_respect  #lonelyplanet  #loves_united_people  #loves_united_portrait  #majestic_people  #natgeopeople  #people_creative_pictures  #people_infinity  #peoplecreatives   #peopleinframe  #peoplephotography  #photo_storee_people  #planetearth  #remoteexpeditions  #rometheplanet  #sight_people  #splendid_people  #worldmastershotz_portraits 

🇦🇺 In our last posts we showed you a bit of Norfolk Island. Now, it’s time for a few more shots and a short summary 👉🏻 Is it worth going to Norfolk Island? Indeed. It is always worth visiting places which are off the beaten path, isn’t it? Norfolk is extremely beautiful and extremely interesting - both historically and politically. Just two and a half hours from Brisbane or Sydney and you will find yourself in one of the most remote destinations on earth 🇳🇫 • • • 🇵🇱 W ostatnich postach podpowiadaliśmy wam nieco o Wyspie Norfolk - mniej znanym australijskim kierunku. Dziś kilka ostatnich zdjeć i przemyśleń 👉🏻 Czy warto wybrać się na Norfolk? Zdecydowanie. Zawsze warto zaglądać tam, gdzie inni tłumnie jeszcze nie zaglądają. Wyspa jest bardzo atrakcyjna przyrodniczo, historycznie, a współcześnie też politycznie. Dwu i półgodziny lot z Brisbane lub Sydney, i jesteście w jednym z najbardziej odosobnionych miejsc świata 🇳🇫 • • • #norfolkisland  #Australia  #seeaustralia  #visitnsw  #exploreaustralia  #pacificisland  #unknowndestination  #wyspypacyfiku  #exploreaustralia  #unknownaustralia  #podroze  #blogpodrozniczy  #prostozpodrozy  #podrozniczki  #aussiebucketlist  #visitaustralia  #australia_vacations  #podrozemaleiduze

From TJ couple Sarah & Jack: "We would definitely recommend New Zealand to any couple who has at least two weeks to spend on their honeymoon. We loved the flexibility of having a campervan and changing our itinerary as we pleased. While it was a little chilly visiting New Zealand in the winter, it made spontaneous changes in plans easy and was nothing a little snuggling couldn’t fix. In the end, our 27-day trip cost almost $14,000. Yes, this is a lot of money, but with Traveler’s Joy and the generous help of family and friends we only had to pay for our plane tickets out of pocket. A sweet deal for a very memorable trip!"⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #NewZealand  #Newlyweds ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #TravelersJoy  #SkipTheBlender  #HoneymoonRegistry  #Honeymoon  #Honeymooning  #WeddingRegistry  #Travel  #Newlyweds  #Engaged  #HoneymoonPlanner  #LetsGo  #DownUnder  #PacificIsland  #HoneymoonIsland  #Adventure  #Explore  #Wanderlust  #HoneymoonPlans  #HoneymoonStory  #LoveStory  #HappilyEveryAfter  #WeDidIt

🇦🇺 A little bit more about the less known part of Norfolk Island reality. The island had been governed by its legislative assembly since 1979, until the Australian government’s decision in 2015 to revoke its autonomy. The population is now governed by New South Wales, but has no say in the government. The international human rights lawyer Geoffrey Robertson has launched a legal challenge with the United Nations on behalf of Norfolk Islanders, alleging the Australian government has placed islander’s culture and language (yes, they have their own language Norf’k) at risk by revoking their right to self-govern 🇳🇫 The islanders have established the 'Tent Embassy' in the grounds of their former Legislative Assembly Building. That’s were we met Duncan Sanderson and heard the Norfolk story. Are you aware of this situation? • • • 🇵🇱 Dzisiaj nieco więcej o tej mniej pozytywnej stronie australijskiej Wyspy Norfolk, o której oczywiście niewiele się słyszy. Wyspa znajduje się mniej więcej w połowie drogi między Australią a Nową Zelandią, na Pacyfiku. To jedno z najbardziej odizolowanych miejsc na świecie. Od 1979 roku rządziło tu tzw. zgromadzenie ustawodawcze, a wyspa zachowywała względną niezależność od Australii. Aż do 2015 rok, kiedy australijski rząd zdecydował o odwołaniu autonomii i wcielił Norfolk do stanu Nowa Południowa Walia. Kilka miesięcy temu prawnik Geoffrey Robertson, postać zajmująca się prawami człowieka, zdecydował się reprezentować mieszkańców Wyspy Norfolk. Wytoczył Australii proces przed Organizacją Narodów Zjednoczonych twierdząc, że rząd Australii odwołując prawo wyspiarzy do samorządności, naraża na niebezpieczeństwo ich kulturę i język. Tak - mieszkańcy wyspy nie czują się Australijczykami - mają swój język (Norf’k), swoją historię, swoją kulturę 🇳🇫 Przy rządowych budynkach na wyspie Norfolk od kilku lat rozstawiona jest namiotowa ambasada, gdzie spotkać można Duncana Sandersona, który chce, aby świat usłyszał o tej absurdalnej sytuacji XXI wieku, tworzonej przez jeden z najbardziej demokratycznych krajów świata. Czy oby na pewno? • • • #norfolkisland  #Australia  #exploreaustralia  #pacificisland  #unknowndestination  #unitednations  #humanrights
