This tour takes you on the journey of the Kapu system of Hawaii to the induction of Christianity. Where each way of life is explored through the eyes of the Hawaiian People. Learn about the civil war that took place as both sides fought for what they believed in and for their God. Highlights * The Battle of Kuamo'o * Mamalahoa Trail (Kings Highway) * Inside look of the Ancient Hawaiian Kapu system * Early Catholic presence. * Story of Christianity as told by the Hawaiians (pros and cons) * How Kapu and Christianity work together today with Mālama kō aloha.
