This video shares the special "ALOHA" spirit of Hawaiʻi in a way that has rarely been done before. Produced by Pono Shim and Don Mapes for non-profit Enterprise Honolulu, the video is to promote the islands as a special place of spirit and innovation. The video is based on the teaching of Aunty Pilahi Paki who was called the keeper of Hawaiʻiʻs secrets. Although she passed away in 1985 she prophesied that the world would come to Hawaiʻi in the 21st century to find the answer to world peace. That answer...ALOHA.
"ALOHA Connects" is a collaborative project designed to connect Hawai'i businesses with their counterparts in the APEC member economies resulting in increased trade, business expansion, capital investment, economic stimulation, technological innovation and job creation.

Produced with the cooperation of numerous organizations who donated footage, the video invites others to come to our islands to partner to find solutions to the worldʻs problems.
