Born this way – I believe that all children of the world were born to have access to clean drinking water whenever they need it.

BTW: At the moment 1 billion people don’t. 2 million children die through not having access to clean drinking water each year.

Born this way to drink clean water – is these kids and their parents’ dream day. We can make it a dream day everyday for them. Let’s make it happen fun people, by clicking on UNICEF’S TAP PROJECT link. Let’s FLOW! Thanks groovy people.

Taonga tuku iho, he tatou–we are treasures handed down from our ancestors

Here’s what high school Maori young people get up to down in New Zealand, in their spare time. Featuring the poi dance.

Yes, I know… everyone is Hannah Montana and grew up singing together as much as Destiny’s Child did in their youth, down in New Zealand. (Young people can sing, harmonize, song write, dance, act,  theater, live performance, play guitar)… it’s all a natural part of the culture and socialization process in high school for Maori young people, without even thinking about it.

You can grow up Maori, and never once, hear the word that you’re talented as an individual. It’s the beauty of the culture. So natural. Always about community. For a Maori actor to take on Hollywood like Cliff Curtis (or Oscar-nominated Keisha Castle-Hughes) they break every code, they were ever socialized with to break away from the pack and shine as an individual star. That’s why I admire them ten times as much as Hollywood perhaps does. They’re amazing and strong people for daring to be different every day on their journey to entertain the world as individual artists and performers.

But back to these high school kids doing the Maori poi dance in the beauty of harmonious unison. Cool aye?! :) Angelina Jolie’s mom, Marcheline Bertrand also raised her daughter to know the poi dance too (pictured above). It’s great for developing reflexology in children and Maori in particular excel at sports and action on the sport field, like Jolie does taking on action movie roles. Can’t you just see this in Vegas, set to a drama and a legend of a Maori love story with a touch of Cirque? I can. It’s big future news and is an exciting new frontier. Perhaps by the time Avatar 2 hits the box office, Vegas will be ready for this, real and live encounter of indigenous-thinking live music artists.

Just don’t paint these precious Maori people blue! :)

The beautiful thing about nature, is that if you hold a piece of black paua shell up to the light, all the colors of the rainbow are reflected in this jewel from the sea.

When the limitless sky above drops down into the depths of the ocean to give humanity a message, I have eyes to see, learn and listen about the wonders and mysteries of the world. :)
