White Paper

Hi-Mana Studios White Paper

Hula Girl NFT WhitePaper


The concept of “Aloha,” which encompasses respect, compassion, and a sense of responsibility for the well-being of others and the environment, is used as a framework to explore ways in which Hula Girl NFTs can promote positivity and reduce the carbon footprint. Reducing our carbon footprint is essential for maintaining balance and harmony within the natural world, which is deeply connected to our spiritual well-being. Aloha, the Hawaiian concept of love and respect for all living things, reminds us that we are all interconnected and that our actions have a ripple effect on the world around us. By taking steps to reduce our carbon emissions, we are showing respect and love for the earth and all of its inhabitants, and ensuring a brighter, more sustainable future for all. The paper concludes with recommendations for ways in which the Hula Girl NFT community can take steps towards a more sustainable, fun and positive future. 

“Live Aloha”

Hula Girl NFT is an exclusive collection of 8808 hand drawn AI Generated Nfts by Jacqueline Kealoha Ford. The project was born between three creatives who found common ground with their passion to live and share “ALOHA”. Within 10 months of meeting, planning and exploring ideas “Hi-Mana Studios” was created! 

What is ……. ALOHA?

Aloha is a way of life

The Hawaiian word “alo” means “presence” or “share” and the word “ha” means “breath of life” or “essence of life.”

The word Aloha is something that you experience, your interaction with life, passion, joy, something that’s present within you. But at the same time, it’s something that you share, something that is spread to those around you, sharing that energy and joy that is within you.

It’s the way the Hawaiians live their everyday lives. Aloha Pono Pono Ono


by Curby Rule

For those who follow the path of Huna, or are fortunate enough to live in Hawai’i, it is common for us to use the word Aloha. We use it in greetings and farewells and in expressing love. But the word means even more, it is a way of life. 

Besides these common meanings, the word Aloha holds within itself all one needs to know to interact rightfully in the natural world. These insights describe an attitude or way of life sometimes called “The Aloha Spirit” or “The Way of Aloha”.

The spirit of Aloha was an important lesson taught to the children of the past because it was about the world of which they were a part. One early teaching goes like this: 

Aloha is being a part of all, and all being a part of me. When there is pain – it is my pain. When there is joy – it is also mine. I respect all that is as part of the Creator and part of me. I will not willfully harm anyone or anything. When food is needed I will take only my need and explain why it is being taken. The earth, the sky, the sea are mine to care for, to cherish and to protect. This is Hawaiian – this is Aloha!

As the child grew, the need for a fundamental code of ethics was taught. This code is found within a deeper layer of the meaning of the word Aloha. The code is derived from one of the acronymic meanings of Aloha.

A, ala, watchful, alertness 

L, lokahi, working with unity 

O, oia’i’o, truthful honesty 

H, ha’aha’a, humility 

A, ahonui, patient perseverance

The kahuna David Bray interprets this code as “Come forward, be in unity and harmony with your real self, God, and mankind. Be honest, truthful, patient, kind to all life forms, and humble.” He also stated that to the Hawaiian of old, Aloha meant “God in us.” 

So far, within Aloha, we have found an explanation of our place in the world and a code of ethics to help us with our interactions in the world. The only thing we are missing is our “prime directive” while we are here, and that too can be found within the root words that make up Aloha.

alo, 1. sharing 2. in the present 

oha, joyous affection, joy 

ha, life energy, life, breath

​Using Hawaiian language grammatical rules, we will translate this literally as “The joyful sharing of life energy in the present” or simply “Joyfully sharing life”.

We share this Definition to help explain why we choose “aloha” as our theme in the first place. We want to create a nft community of people from all walks of life who want to have fun and help spread the Aloha to Every Continent in the World! 

We believe protecting the Environment is very important. #LiveAloha

We believe supporting Mental Health is very Important. #LiveAloha

We believe Creativity makes the World & all People Healthier & Happier. #LiveAloha

We believe in Wellness and Wealth.
