Ass, Disney, and Dude: WELL, WHO WANTS TO WORK AT THIS STUPID... FAKEY LUAU ANYWAY angrynebula: brunhiddensmusings: lady-violaceous: lyrangalia: oakumura: gnarly-art: Lilo and Stitch presenting an accurate representation of Hawaiians perspective on luaus held by tourists.  #what’s sad about this is that this is actually what Hawaiians had to do when the western culture took over #a luau was a sacred practice #until the westerners took the concept and had the audacity to change it into a time to stuff your face with food and put on grass skirts and coconut bras and dance the hula #and when they had these events, they didn’t even let actual Hawaiian people in #so to make money to take care of themselves, the Hawaiians were hired to work in these disgraceful events to clean up after the tourists like slaves only to make less than a buck #so good job disney for doing your fucking research and educating these people #sadly, this still goes on even until today and it makes me sick “good job disney” my ass, good job CHRIS SANDERS Let’s not credit just Chris Sanders for this. This happened because they cast actual Hawaiian Actors like Tia Carrere and Jason Scott Lee to play Hawaiian characters, and allowed the actors to have input into writing the characters’ lines.  This sort of authenticity comes from accuracy and authenticity in casting choices. The fact that Chris Sanders as direct/writer facilitated that does not mean he gets credit for the actors’ experience. This is why diversity and representation in media matters. Dude as a hawaiian, this is like straight up what my life as a kid was. My mom worked at those fakey luaus full time to pay rent. My mom is someone who is absolutely passionate and proud about being a hawaiian, living and teaching the ways our ancestors lived and taught. See, we Hawaiians, we live by the way of aloha. And not by the way of “hello” “goodbye”, let me educate you. As Pono Shim, CEO and President of Enterprise Honolulu, the Oahu Economic Development Board, states absolutely perfectly “aloha is to be in the presence of life, to share the essence of one’s being with openness, honesty, and humility. It is a way of being, a way of behaving, a way of life. It is a commitment to accepting others and giving dignity to who they are and what they have to offer.” Aloha is more than hello and goodbye. Think of aloha as an abbreviation. Akahai: meaning kindness Lokahi: meaning unity Olu’Olu’: meaning agreeableness Ha’aha’a: meaning humility Ahonui: meaning patience This is something we all need to live by, seriously, we all should the dropped sub-plot was that lilo hated tourists, which is why she goes around taking pictures of them like they were attractions instead of people; like how they took photos of locals similarly there was a deleted scene where she scares tourists off of a beach by sounding a false tsunami siren to watch them run screamingdeeper in the lore that kid thats a prick to her, mertyle, is the daughter of the person who runs the megamart and crushed a lot of other local businesses- when they have to do a hula to tell a story mertyle actually uses it to describe the low prices, where lilo does a hula about a traditional creation myth that was important to her mother. you may notice both lilo and nani are on first name basis with both the coffee shop owner and the fruitseller, there is big disparity between the locals and foreign interest businesses relegating them to just be tourist industry friendly reminder that lilo stitch is indisputably the best disney film

Cats, Climbing, and Fire: A BIRD CAN WALK SEVERAL KaKaPO ARE THE HEAVIEST KM IN ONE NIGHT. PARROT IN THE WORLD. ALTHOUGH IT CANNOT FLY IT IS POSSIBLY AS DEFENCE AGAINST GOOD AT CLIMBING TREES. ITS ANCIENT PREDATOR, THE Kaka PO BECAME NOCTURNAL AND LEARNED TO REMAIN STILL ('FREEZE') AT TIMES 0F DANGER. SEATS "KAKA PO" Repost @shirohyde ・・・ File: "Kakapo" Kakapo (Strigops habroptila) <CR> ________________________ Large, flightless and nocturnal, the kākāpō is an eccentric parrot which can live for decades. It is not closely related to other parrots and, in fact, has a combination of biological features not shared by any other species. Early Polynesian settlers hunted the bird for its plumage and meat. At the beginning of the 19th century, kākāpō were still widespread throughout New Zealand. From the 1840s, European settlers not only hunted the bird, they cleared and set fire to bush for farming, destroying its habitat. Most devastating of all to its survival was the introduction of predators such as rats, cats and stoats. In ancient history, its only endemic predator was a giant eagle (now extinct) and it developed the habit of nesting, rearing and feeding its young on the ground. This nesting behaviour made its eggs and chicks easy prey to introduced mammalian predators, especially cats. source: nzbirdsonline.org.nz ________________________ Bertubuh besar, tak dapat terbang dan nokturnal. Kakapo adalah jenis parrot unik yang mampu hidup puluhan tahun. Satwa ini tidak benar-benar ber relasi dengan parrot yang lain, karena memiliki kombinasi fitur biologis yang tidak dimiliki spesies lainnya. Di era datangnya bangsa Polynesia, Kakapo diburu karena bulu dan dagingnya. Di awal abad ke 19, kakapo masih tersebar di seluruh Selandia Baru. Sejak tahun 1840an, kedatangan bangsa Eropa tak hanya memburu kakapo, tapi juga membakar habitatnya untuk lahan pertanian. Ancaman lain yang dihadapi oleh kakapo adalah datangnya spesies pendatang seperti tikus, kucing dan cerpelai. Di masa lampau, predator alami kakapo hanyalah elang raksasa (punah) dan karenanya memiliki kebiasaan untuk membuat sarang, bertelur dan kemudian membesarkan anaknya di tanah. Kebiasaan alami kakapo inilah yang membuat predator pendatang seperti kucing mudah memakan telur dan anak kakapo. ________________________ komikinajah sianginajah selasaedukasi
