The islands of Hawaii are as diverse as they are beautiful. From tropical palm-lined beaches to snow-capped mountains they are all part of the diverse and complex beauty of Hawaii. The images below portray some of the diverse and enchanting aspects of Hawaiian society.

Beside the crater Halemaumau on the Big Island of Hawaii, a group of dancers give thanks for the goddess Pele after winning the annual contest for the ancient hula. Enthusiasm for the hula is a prominent feature of Hawaii's cultural renaissance. The majority of dancers are haoles (white Caucasian Americans) or hapa-haoles (Asian Americans), new Hawaiians in search of an identity. They do not speak the Hawaiian language, and barely comprehend the chants which accompany their dancing - those remain the jealously guarded property of the dance choreographers, descendants of Polynesian Hawaiians.
