possibly be. yet it also never shed what was there before in the layers and layers that have come since. it's a wonderful tricky conflicted hell broth in lack of a better word that you'd have to call paradise. >> no way it's a paradise. paradises don't exist. paradise is kind of in your head. >> wait a minute. you look at your window here. you look at those hills, those mountains, all that green, that blue sky. the clear sea. it sure looks like paradise to me. this guy knows. he's been everywhere. he's paul thoreau. novelist, essayist, he's a legendary travel writer. of the all the places he's been, all the places he's seen, he chose hawaii to live and he's lived here for 25 years. >> does it matter that it's america?
10:03 pm
>> it's the big thing that it's america. it has elements of the third world. the nicest elements of the third world which is that it is funky. there is self-respect. there's the pride. things that don't work at all. and then it's mainstream usa. where we are now. there's pta meetings here. they get together and watch the super bowl and it's the most main street usa you will find. >> town is a neighborhood spot in the district and as hawaii is the only state in the union that allows fishermen to sell to restaurants, the pan-roasted mahi-mahi is pretty damn good. it's not a particularly welcoming or friendly part of the world. contrary to the sort of the aloha myth. >> no, that's right. but no island is. nantucket isn't. the island of hawaii isn't. name an island that is that wants foreigners there. sicily?
10:04 pm
no way! no way. did anyone come to an island with a good intention? >> no, never in this new world. best case in the world, bring syphilis. pretty much. at the very least. >> yes. captain cook put his sailors ashore just a little northwest of here. like magellan, and they killed the first tourists, and just like hawaii, they killed their first tourists. the philippines killed their first tourists, but people on the islands born on the islands, they view anyone who comes ashore with suspicion. >> what defines a hawaiian? maybe should go back in our imaginations to could have been 2,000 years ago. the tahitians had this voyage way before any other culture was exploring the deep seas.
10:05 pm
somehow, someplace in the south pacific, single most isolated in archipelago on the planet. somehow get here are from the archipelago. fast forward to captain cook and get a glimpse, very productive people. they're industrious, healthy. strong, time for the arts. that was a large population, more than half of what we have in hawaii today. fully sustainable, because there was no other choice. so over time, the native hawaiian population goes to 22,000. it's the same story. introduced the inability to deal with it, people die. 1926, public school system would outlaw language and the practice of culture in public schools. so the road to extinction is being well paved. >> between captain cook's arrival in 1778 and today, disease wiped out most of the population. missionaries came.
10:06 pm
a booming sugar and pineapple plantation industry. influx of immigrants in okinawa, china, and the philippines, the overthrow of the queen. the u.s. takeover of the hawaiian government. world war ii. and finally, statehood. the geographical realities of being thousands of miles from, well, anywhere else, has given hawaii to some degree, protection from the forces that eradicated so many other south pacific cultures entirely. in fact, they've arguably been holding back the inevitable better than just about anyone. what hawaii looks like today depends which island you're standing on and to some extent, the reputation of the locals. the hawaiian islands are not a monolith. islands, that's plural and we're talking eight very different
10:07 pm
islands with very different identities. it's been over a century since the waves of immigrants began and things got all mixed up in the best possible way. there's layers. and a simple question like, who is hawaiian gets you all kinds of answers. the neighborhood of kalihi is far from what most know and most specific kind the last 40 years. >> it's the blue collar town. they all come here. breakfast, lunch. every day. >> i'm joined by two local chefs, mark noguchi of mission, known by some as the gooch. second generation japanese and andrew lei, and he's first generation vietnamese american, or would that be vietnamese-hawaiian. as you'll see, it gets complicated. >> i actually cooked on the east coast for three years and people would always be like, are you from hawaii? you're hawaiian? i said, no.
10:08 pm
second generation japanese. but hawaiian? no, i realized like, here in hawaii, we identify ourselves ethnically versus geographically. like, there's no way he or i would call ourselves hawaiians. we would get our asses kicked by a hawaiian. >> how many generations, does it take to qualify as a hawaiian? >> a native of the land. in your blood. you come from a lineage of native hawaiian people. >> what's your feeling here? >> well, i do feel hawaiian in a sense, you know. it's my place. but culturally, that's a different story. >> you say you're not hawaiian. >> no. >> what's your feeling about -- spam? >> i love it. >> so you are hawaiian. >> i'm born and raised, going to die 808. >> the owners are a typical mix. aka mob, mainly japanese
10:09 pm
husband, and daughter, who i guess would be japanese, okinawan/american/hawaiian and son-in-law robert who is of course mexican. >> that's pretty. ooh, look at that. oh, that's the tripe. that looks good. >> now we are talking. that's awesome. >> i just call it local food, but local food covers a wide net. when i look at this table, it's just hawaii. got portuguese, japanese. okinawan, world war ii. i don't know. >> korean? >> korean, japanese, hawaiian. love child, awesomeness. >> the food is bone deep hawaiian stuff, which is to say delicious mash-up, okay. take taco rice.
10:10 pm
it's a dish created in okinawa to approximate tex-mex for homesick american gis inappropriated by younger generations of okinawan japanese and found its way back to hawaii. got that? >> identify, my best friends were native hawaiian. helped me to realize the pride of being from hawaii, understanding the hawaiian culture. living it. possibly japanese. >> there's still a movement to sovereign. >> there's strong movement. >> so if fighting broke out, which side are you on? >> i'm getting the tear gas. >> you don't even have to think about it? >> i would joke about it, because if i like, me and hawaii, and native hawaiians only, and hey, everybody needs a cook. i would be like, hey, i am a cook. i have worth!
10:11 pm
flax seeds. yogurt. get moving. keep moving. i know! try laxatives. been there, done that. my chronic constipation keeps coming back. i know. tell me something i don't know. vo: linzess works differently from laxatives. linzess treats adults with ibs with constipation or chronic constipation. it can help relieve your belly pain, and lets you have more frequent and complete bowel movements that are easier to pass. do not give linzess to children under six and it should not be given to children six to seventeen. it may harm them. don't take linzess if you have a bowel blockage. get immediate help if you develop unusual or severe stomach pain, especially with bloody or black stools. the most common side effect is diarrhea sometimes severe. if it's severe stop taking linzess and call your doctor right away. other side effects include gas, stomach-area pain and swelling. talk to your doctor about managing your symptoms proactively with linzess. yeah, i was just talking uhabout yourico?...
10:12 pm

this is ninoa thompson. in 1976 with similarly heroic hawaiians, he did a difficult important thing. before 1972, it was generally assumed even insisted upon that hawaii had been settled originally by some random savages who maybe drifted over accidentally from south america. couldn't have been ancient polynesians across thousands of miles of open water. >> nobody could see the canoe. too much beaten out of you. no dreams. no hope. can't see. >> the polynesian voyaging
10:15 pm
society with the help of noah thompson set out to prove that that was exactly what did happen. >> there were those in the community that loved this, prayed for it. it was powerful. it changed everything. you have a 62-foot canoe. it was powerful. it changed everything. >> the hokulaia. a double-ul -- double-hulled sailing craft believed to been used in those times and using only primitive contemporaneous navigational tools sailed to tahiti and back. the trip that helped spark a hawaiian renaissance, a rebirth of pride and interest in traditional hawaiian culture and identity. >> the success was monumental. it changed world view that our
10:16 pm
ancestors were powerful, and extraordinarily intelligent and courageous and skilled. and so we come from them. >> thompson is a legendary waterman and he continues to sail. a native hawaiian, his roots go back in the valley 200 years. >> my grandfather was born here. so i grew up. >> he spent many years learning techniques from a master. he is a man who grew up in the small micronesian island. >> this was a man who was chosen by his grandfather. at 1-year-old he was put in the water and the wind. he was sailing. the canoe made me sick. my grandfather threw me into the ocean to go inside the wave. when i go inside the wave, i become the wave. when i become the wave, now i navigate. at 5. i approached him. said to me, too old? you want someone to know
10:17 pm
everything. send his son. he said i'll teach you enough to find the island you seek, but i can't teach you the magic. >> why do you think it was important to do such a thing? >> i mean, it's the same story you'll see everywhere in terms of the indigenous people. my father's mother, nearly pure hawaiian, chooses not to teach her children language or culture or genealogy. where do you come? who's your family? what's your name, and that could have been 100 generations. what the voyage did was a reconnection back to feeling wholesome about who you are, because knowing where you come from and who are your ancestors. so when they got to tahiti, it was their canoe and not ours, and so it was like it started to ignite this flame. it was symbolic. a bumper sticker, t-shirt emerged.
10:18 pm
i'm proud to be hawaiian. 1987, first language. mandatory in schools. hawaiian culture has to be taught. private schools won't have attendance if you don't teach hawaiian. now hawaiian identity into everything. it has to be recognized in everything. you are going to molokai? >> yes. >> that community is powerful. >> what i mentioned to people, locals in oahu that i was going to molokai, a lot were surprised. they do not have a reputation of being welcoming, and those molokai dudes were mean, unfriendly, tough as iron, and quick to get pissed off. as it turned out, that was not my experience.
10:19 pm
>> we like to brag that we don't have traffic lights. we don't have traffic. >> nice. >> walter naki is a skilled fisherman and today, we head out for some octopus. you know molokai's nickname, right? it is the friendly island. >> it's not the friendly island. supposed to be the most unfriendly island. i mean, that's what everybody says, right? >> it depends how you look at it. traditionally here, we are very, very friendly. now unfriendly is where you go try to come and fix it. make it better. >> right. >> that is when we become unfriendly. the molokai people have been very protective of the natural resources. we have a lot of natural resources still intact, and a lot of people don't want to come.
10:20 pm
>> still? >> yes. >> unsurprisingly, fishing rights is an issue around here. don't come over here sport fishing the wrong place if you know what's good for you. >> nice, sandy spot. >> so this is the area. okay, ready? let's go. we are here, man. okay. when we get near the octopus, we will put the stick in, and when he has a feeling that he is not safe anymore, you go out there, and you stick him with the spear. >> final step, stun the struggling creature with a sharp blow from the mallett, or if if you want to go old school, bite him right in the brain. in my case, it took repeated crunching for the chicklet sized organ.
10:21 pm
>> he is going to be coming over to you, take your time. >> the one died, eventually as likely by exhaustion as anything i suspect. >> you're a hero today. here's the plan. you're a financial company that cares, but your logo is old and a little pointy. so you evolve. you simplify. you haven't changed. you still help people live their best lives. and finally your new logo is ready, and you decide the perfect time to show the world is right... now.

while the sailing canoe was a powerful renaissance for the hawaiians, this is what really set things off, beginning in 1941 and continuing into the 1970s, and beyond, the u.s. navy had been using this neighboring island of koloa as a bombing range. you could feel the shockwaves as far away as molokai. people have never been happy about it but emboldened by times and recent events, a group of young activists decided to take a stand. in 1976, there were a number of attempted occupations of the island in protest of the bombing. none more successful than walter. he and fellow activist, richard sawyer set up on the island and refused to leave.
10:26 pm
>> back over there. >> managing to evade pursuers just over a month before finally being arrested in jail. >> the first here. >> they emerged, of course, heroes. and these protests went on to inspire many others to enjoy the movement. >> i hope i'm still alive when that happens. i want to see. >> and embody the independent spirit and desire for hawaiian sovereignty that today resonates across generations. >> welcome to what is supposedly the most unwelcoming place in hawaii. ♪ ♪

10:28 pm
springs, mountains, rivers. these lands, these fish ponds were managed by their ancestors. as a sacred trust. fresh water from the fast moving oceans met. early, sustainable clean fish farms. something in modern times, we're still struggling to figure out. >> people think about us. the true story, we have a place of abundance and trying to protect it. trying to protect all of these things we've been trying to protect for the last 30 years and it's getting harder and harder. >> every single one of these hawaiians over here, get enough evidence that the state of hawaii, the department of land and natural resources have done a terrible job. we are not looking for blame, but we are actually looking for an agreement that today, we can all be pono, righteous, good. our planet is in such bad shape that being environmental, being green is trending, and that is what hawaiians have always been.
10:29 pm
>> right. so who gets to be hawaiian? >> hawaiian is a nationality, bob. you could be hawaiian. >> oh, don't [ bleep ] me. you have to be blood. >> i can give you the best explanation. you cannot be our blood. you cannot be kanapa. hawaii is our nationality. it matters so much, if you love this place and you don't want to with develop it, destroy it, abuse it, we're on the same team. if you are eyeing this place and its resources as a money-making vehicle for yourself, we are enemies, and it does not matter the race or the religion or the sex you. if you love this place, and you can love it the way we love it, and our ancestors loved it, then
10:30 pm
we can be more than hawaiian, we can be family. i'm going to aloha you. >> beautifully put. wow. >> that's it. >> right on, bro. >> slow roasted pig, grilled kala fish. mullet cook ed hanu style. and of course, octopus. known as squid luau. fresh poi. you've got to have it fresh. believe me. makes all the difference in the world. fresh water snails called i believe hihi vine harvested from streams way up in the mountains. >> this is the bounty of the ocean and the mountain. squid. >> that's octopus? >> that is the one you caught. >> oh, yes, i recognize you. ♪ ♪

10:37 pm
so in hawaii, the water, man, is an important distinction. it expresses the shared consensus you're able to handle yourself in the ocean no matter what it throws at you. it implies you're capable of almost mythical things. the ability to live in the water, handle its many moods, above or below the surface. meet uncle ross. a canoe-surfing legend and generally accepted ambassador of the aloha spirit. he's offered to share the truly ancient hawaiian space found only on the face of a crashing wave. ♪ >> surfing, a life connected to the ocean, just spending time

magazine. >> local culture is very much so trying to point a finger at anybody coming going, hey, you don't belong. therein kind of lies a little conflict we have of being a modern day hawaiian. and i still think that's something we forget about these days is how educated and how accepting our ancestors were. it was always built on inclusivity, aloha. aloha is giving without expecting anything in return. you've got a hawaiian culture that was a product of the polynesians that populated the islands and the local part of the plantation lifestyle. the japanese, the chinese, the koreans, filipinos, portuguese. >> if indeed all can be explained by what is on your plate, this is a prime example. behold. the plate lunch. the most identifiable and essential feature of the plate lunch is this. a big scoop or two of white rice

10:42 pm
>> as i said, just so good. >> if you really want to do hawaii right, you've got to get give back. that's a power that hawaii has is that if you show aloha and you give without asking, the ina is going to recognize it and shower its blessings upon you. >> so you think traditional hawaiian culture and lifestyle has a chance against the modern world? >> i think so. the beautiful part about my ancestors is they realized there was a limited number of resources where they lived, so they observed nature to the best possible they could to figure out what were the cycles and how do we preserve this resource? hawaiian culture can teach the whole world something that it needs to know, that we all live on an island. and we are all part of the same community. let's all show aloha to the ina and let's show aloha to
