Some Hawaiian citizens believe the extra work involved in "living off the land" makes one appreciate food more. What are your thoughts on this type of consumption?
13:12 They are clearly praying and they edited the audio to "thank you for being here." LAME!
"We need this to survive". Says that while he probably has a supermarket near his house
How does a human have that kind of lung capacity? Energy to go down, energy to lie in wait, and energy ro resurface WITH additional weight.
Great aspect in the world today especially with a lot of GMO products on the shelves.
I'm a bit confused as to why this is marketed as native Hawaiians are the only people who hunt, fish, and grow their own food. I commend these people for doing this, but the presentation seems a bit off. People from every culture partake in these practices. Even in the midst western urban sprawl.
Ya and you're gonna become a meal for a shark!
2 models that everyone should follow, nothing wrong with trying to live off the land to feed yourself and Family, Governments are always happy to feed you what makes you sick and their pockets full, plus I like that they grow and hunt just what they need, a lot of us over buy (Costco) and food can spoil…
she probably give good head
Hawaiian people:Badjao ??: hold my ?
Kimmy you are food.. you are delicious… Wow
such a beautiful life
too bad im allergic to fish
90 ft free dive? I was lucky to get 20 ft Sister you have some lungs.
The bores are hard to find here on Oahu
The most beautiful thing about this documentary was the breathtaking Kimi
Ummm………. boats won’t stop delivering to a US state no matter where it is ?? It’s a cool hobby but it’s not for reasons stated
The sea huntress and the bow hunter and they gatherers in between should begin Ahu Pua’a” again in today’s time Mahalo Nui Loa and Aloha
I think the lesson she teaches us is excellent . We have to make our life style eco friendly so that the balance with nature should be maintain .
What a courageous woman. Great documentary
Hopefully no shark at all
I wanna know how long she can hold her breath
Looks out of this world ??
At the same time let's go back to living without medicine and let nature thin the herd with an average life span of 40-50yrs old….when your reproductive years have past, it's time to exit the stage…. Ya, I didn't think so either. Enjoy the ease of processed foods people… our ancestors are jealous.
I remember her from Bon Appétit video with Brad.
I picked up hunting to avoid GMOs and other chemicals used by mass produced food
I picked up hunting to avoid GMOs and other chemicals used by mass produced farmers
This guy is a tool
Amazing video!! Love the Hawaiian culture that went into this video!
Nice in theory, but if every person in Hawaii tried to live off the land, the ocean would be devoid of fish in a month and the ecosystem would be destroyed. They import food for a reason. The land cannot support the population.
Wow Kim's vibe is peaceful knowing it's just you and the almighty, out in the deep blue sea.
Lucky to find a wife like that…
I see some Hate comments on this vid & I laugh because us Hawaiian’s actually Polynesians in general can survive of the land & water period. JAHLOHA to all my Brownies. Poly Pride All Day Every Day????
If we did this more we wouldnt have so much pollution nor have the need for money…well for the most part. Maybe we should bring back the barter system
People who live by nature are more peaceful
Would love to live there and learn the life style
“For us to survive, something has to die”. This is why i dont get people who get mad at people who kill animals for people to eat. Its just like a predator hunting for a prey. I do go against killings animals that we dont need to kill. But people have to accept that we are predators and we cant change that. We just have to kill some animals to live
Dass how its done Hawaiian style
Aloha spirit indeed.Would of loved this if it was about the people, the Hawaii pot luck, the aloha spirit.
Individuals living a idealistic lifestyle. This is OK when it’s just a few going along as Tarzan and Jane.
However there are 1.1million people living here on Oahu.Let’s be realistic National Geographic if as you suggests that the boats stop running, and the planes don’t land and we are on the brink of doomsday’s and the only way for us to survive is to have primitive hunting & gathering skills that a seven year old kid can learn in a day is a laughable concept to say the least.For example as you say on the 11th day our food is gone. Then my friend you will see a real community first panic, there will be tens of Thousand of people armed with fins and spears in the ocean.And unless you guys scared away all the fish, oh my gosh there were hardly any fish where she was anyway and so little.
And please bows & arrows are you for real this is Hawai’i of the USA there are hunters here with guns those pigs and sheep will be gone quick.
The time has come upon us all to put the pagan tribal rituals of all our past cultures where they belong.Which is in the past.Let’s us not forget that King Kamahamaha and his court like all kings got the best fish.
It’s not about connecting with nature or conquering people no way.It’s a realistic approach and a complete understanding that there are a lot of us here and we all need to eat everyday
Aloha.I expected more from you National Geographic.
Oh and by the way, that piece of land where you killed the pig. Well that’s a beautiful place to grow fruit trees. But no trees why not?The Hawaii government? Why say that? would you say the New York government or the Kentucky Government?
J.J. Jelly you need to research before you just show up and blab blab blab.How you get that job anyway?
You don't have to kill to survive!
She's immune to cigatera
@JAKE JOHNSON your sped
holy smoke , i cant even dive more than 10 feet.
this woman is a very skillful hunter… love to watch… great spearfishing.. credits to Natgeo and all in this video… keep it up
Wow real talk????
It is a very pity that people continue to destroy nature and National Geographic helps, very very sad ???????????????????
fvck the people who disliked that video
I moved a month ago to the Big Island of Hawaii. Learning this way of life, helping support one another, and coexisting with nature and the land has been the biggest eye opening experience for me. I plan to keep learning the ways of the Hawaiin culture, and living the rest of my life in such a way. Awesome insight video to the survival of the Hawaiin Islands Natgeo
I’m thinking of moving there this are the kind of life I was born with but grew up in the busy city life
Love when Justin says it'll feed his neighbor's family too, "It's a community thing"…. That's awesome!!
She so right, Thumbs up to her
This is such a beautiful and peaceful way to live life. Humans are going to bulldoze everything and will panic when it’s too late we are going to need the environment to survive. So be good to it and it will be good to you.
Great time capsule and reminders for all generations. Thanks guys great story
From North Carolina ??✌️..This is interesting. No burger hut or Mc dam Donald's. It does help ppl the be someways selp sufficient. My mom & I garden & buy local seafood. When possible I fish.
She’s still using civilization though. She buys toilet paper, has a fridge with food in it, and uses a vehicle with fuel to get around, etc. It’s not completely“living off the land”. She is a bad a$$ though.
In the picture of Kim’s dad at 2:48 it looks like there’s a face in the rock
I want a Kimi! ? Wondering though, do you ever test your fish for radiation? Like from Fukashima?
Going to Foodland is easier
Da könnte die OMV auch noch bohren ?! Wirtschaft vor Umwelt à la Sebastian Kurz & Trump ? ? ? ? ?!
Living off the land after you purchase the vehicle, spear gun, wet suit, etc. etc. etc. etc.
Kimi is so beautiful
JJ Kelly :'D
She looks like Tom Cruise’s ex wife
Come on… You talk sustainability and then you eat only three selected parts of a whole pig? That's weak (a pig so young has tasty offal meat, shanks you can smoke,…).
This is how we were all meant to live
Oh please this is all clickbait and you people are suckers. Yeah they had those nice spear guns back in the day huh? Wet suits and weight belts. There is a sucker born every day.
Thank u very much that i did kill u??must be kidding me?
U have upperhand pffff?everybody can shoot a poor animal !!! Stupit people.
So, most Hawaiians are getting lazy in modern times? Or is it the immigrants?
2:49 it looks like there is a skull carved into the rock behind her dad in the picture. Anyone else notice that?
holy molly..!! 90 feet Spear fishing dive ??? that's crazy..
Hafa Adai from Guahan 🙂
I like, national geografi
Dude i cant even stay for 10sec in water. Respect
100 feet lying on the floor………….i lose my breath when i am in the shower washing my hair and the water is pouring over my face…………..lol……… i figure i could free dive about 3 to 4 feet, then i need Air!
They have 10 Yeti coolers. I think they can buy anything they want
wow that's really nice that they pay respect to the animal knowing that they do it for survival not fun
Connecting over conquering
The 2019 population of Hawaii is 1.42 million. Maybe a big part of survival without shipments is to ASAP develop maybe in places farther inland… weather and wave proof (easier said than done but trying to be optimistic) environs to mass cultivate fruits, nuts, and vegetables, and pre-planned logistics to distribute them.
Is it just me or is this girl super hot?
It's Alive Going Places!!!!!!!
She sure sounds super arrogant for someone that has "inner peace through connection with nature"
Insufficient resources, humans depleted everything and you're trying to convince them to kill the few last animals we have left? Think about it geez…
If the boats stop coming the planes won't
You would not have oil, would depend on the pig for fat, salt farms, and sugar farms, along with coffee are in Hawaii. With tropical Fruit…that might be the perfect place for surviving.
Average view count range of NG videos: 20k- 500k. Video on "living off the land" at the time of this writing: 1.6million.
So basically Hawaii was 100% sustainable until the "colonizers" came?
"For us to survive something has to die" uhhh have you heard of fruits and plants? Humans are not made to chew meat.
I was distracted
Living of the land with her $500 plus diving get up
She has an amazing skill.
It's just beautiful,this is real living I grew up feeding myself and family hunting on land and underwater, if you didn't hunt you just don't eat?
its sad that this current generation takes things for granted. self sufficiency should be taught to all
Get your facts straight. The wild bore was brought by the first Hawaiians, not by Westerners. Westerners afterwards brought their own pigs, which interbred. But the FIRST pigs were brought by the Polynesians.
I’m in love with her instantly.
