As soon as this interview started, I could tell this guy was from Hawaii..... Better yet, I was guessing he was from the Big Island. 

"I knew I had to do it, and I didn't know what to expect...."  

(Jason Kunewa from the Big Island of Hawaii)   . 

They were out fishing off of  Dana Point, CA when they came across a giant , approx 700lb Leatherback Sea Turtle, entangled in Kelp, it was wrapped around his fins and his body, pretty bad. Without giving it a second thought, Kunewa grabbed his knife, and jumped in the water to cut the turtle free, as Jason says in the interview...

The turtle is my  "Aumakua" , and for you not familiar with the term Aumakua,  it is a being of both heavenly and earthly nature, An Aumakua is an ancestor that has died and has come back in a different form.....

Better than me explaining it, click here: What is Aumakua - Watch the video.

Before that though, take a minute to watch the interview below.

Great Job Jason Kunewa!

I feel lucky to live Hawaii, it  is more than a place, Hawaii is a "lifestyle" and when we say things like Aloha, and Mahalo,  we mean things far more important than just a hello, goodbye, or thank you, there is spirit and feelings behind those words....

With that, I will sign off......   

Aloha and Mahalo
