of the Pacific Renaissance to revive and preserve Indigenous
life ways and our rich maritime traditions.
HONOUR FIJI JOURNEY
Local cultures embody practical knowledge
of specific bioregions, along with marine management skills that
have been passed down for millenniums needed for sustainable
living and survival. These bodies of knowledge are always intimately
tied to the traditions of the people. To separate them is to
lose irreplaceable maps of ecological wisdom.
The Sacred Waters Journey is a voyage
from the rivers to the sea to promote stewardship and deepen
our relationship with our vital, living waters. It is a vision
for water that is heart and spirit centered.
This is a call to humanity to take
part in collective global actions to protect and preserve our
freshwaters and our great oceans, crucial for our very existence.
It is a commitment to return to universal order--the divine relationship
to all things--and to live in accordance to the natural world.
