Podcast: Episode 10: Huna: The Ancient Tradition of Hawaii
July 1, 2010
Description: Huna, the ancient shamanic tradition of Hawaii, was a very active part of the Hawaiian tradition from the time that the Hawaiians arrived in the Hawaiian Islands, which is thought to be around 800 CE up until the 1800s, when the Christian missionaries made it illegal for the Hawaiians to practice Huna. This philosophical and spiritual belief system is older than Hawaii. In this excerpt from a 2010 talk, Isa Gucciardi, Ph.D., discusses the origins of Huna.
