    [Lin-Manuel Miranda:]
    We read the wind and the sky when the sun is high
    We sail the length of the seas on the ocean breeze
    At night, we name every star
    We know where we are
    We know who we are, who we are

    Aue, aue
    We set a course to find
    A brand new island everywhere we roam
    Aue, aue
    We keep our island in our mind
    And when it's time to find home
    We know the way

    Aue, aue
    We are explorers reading every sign
    We tell the stories of our elders in a never-ending chain
    Aue, aue
    Te fenua, te mālie
    Nā heko hakilia
    We know the way

  12. i…know that lin man miranda wrote a lot of these songs, but….

  13. Here because of the TMT trying to be built in Hawaii's tallest mountain. Islanders don't need a telescope, when their ancestors have read the stars and knew the way home. #ProtectManauKea

  14. после русской версии мне эта песня уже так себе ака русская лучше хд

  15. Polynesians are an ethnolinguistic group of closely related peoples who are native to Polynesia, an expansive region of Oceania in the Pacific Ocean. They trace their origins to Island Southeast Asia and are part of the larger Austronesian ethnolinguistic group with an Urheimat ultimately from Taiwan.🇹🇼

  16. Don’t let this distract you from the fact that American Samoa although a US territory isn’t considered citizens and we’re the only US territory that has been denied this right! Why is that?!

  17. The white bird with a black beak shown at 1:45–1:47 is known as a White Fairy Tern and is native only to the Hawaiian Islands. An interesting fact is that birds like these can fly only a set distance from an island and as such spotting one would indicate that they were very close to land and so that scene was accurate. They are a vulnerable species and I was lucky enough to see several of them during my three years on Oahu. Sadly many of the native birds of the Hawaiian Islands are rapidly disappearing do to habitat loss, invasive species, and disease carrying mosquitoes.

  18. This has been my favorite song from the movie since I first seen it.and now that I've seen hamilton.all I hear is his voice and I love it even more
