History is being made... at least for me. This and another video were shot at a paradise location on the Big Island of Hawaii for the purpose of research, development and implementation of a base camp for sustainable living in both Alaska and Hawaii.
I am wondering what this is about because there is no audio on this computer. I am at an internet cafe, the Pahoa Outpost. Uploading 50 minutes of the most recent footage and have begun to edit it and post it one piece at a time. This and other videos are part of the ongoing instruction and training for Global Travel and Independent Filmmaking.
I have not done this before and it is FUN!
His name is Jai. He is stewarding over a parcel of land in Hawaii co-creating an artist retreat and sustainable community. Extremely talented and intelligent, wild, crazy and loving. Unpredictable, dangerous and funny, witty, fun-loving and a generous... a good friend of a formidable enemy

This question was asked as a joke, but the sometimes overly serious Shaman likes to go deep. In this particular instance, the mystery of color and particularly FAVORITE color evoked a colorful response from him.
David Lakota, an Apache Shaman from Athabasca Alaska was asked a question about his belief in a Life force or Supreme Being.
"I chose not to believe," he begins, "I wanted proof."
This video was shot on the Island of Oahu Hawaii last week during a documentary production training session with Allison Falcon, student and teacher of production and holistic healing arts.
Use the ABC's as a way to create anything imaginable. More importantly, use it as a tool to BE HERE NOW. Use this as a way to enjoy the Present. Use it for survival and emergency situations. This simple technique is a blend of many disciplines from Eastern and Western philosophies field tested in remote Alaska, proven effective and honed to excellence over the course of more than a decade. The ABC's have proven themselves time and again during wild wilderness adventure, survival experiences and spiritual warrior training. One major aspect of the profound ways that this works is employed by the FAA. They too have their ABC's of survival during an in-flight emergency. Pilots are required to know and to be able to perform the ABC's learned in flight school: Airspeed, Best place to land, and Checklist. "You have less than seven seconds from the time you realize there is an emergency in flight," my flight instructor warned me, "to go through the ABCs and ameliorate the danger. Otherwise you have to make an emergency or crash landing." So I practiced and I practiced. And one day I had to use them and they saved my brothers and my life after the engine quit and we fell out of the sky. The ABC's are presented to you here as an unconditional gift and as an invitation to explore, discover and share the beauty of Nature and wilderness of Alaska ~ Hawaii and paradise locations around the world. Mostly, the ABC's are a way for you and your Source to more fully communicate and cooperate for mutual benefit Visit dakinetv**** or send an email: makemoviesdakinetv****
Deep in the heart of the Chugach Mountains in southcentral, Alaska there is a little town called "Glacier City". This is where you may discover the "best of both worlds"- nature and civilization. This is the place that has been chosen to host Alaska Hawaii Oasis, a Mystery School & Retreat. This video was made to share the beauty and wildness of the surroundings as well as get a look at the 2.8 acres and facility that are for sale that we are diligently working to acquire. There are few places on Earth like "Glacier City". Surrounded by mountains, seven glaciers and the notorious Turnagain Arm, an ocean inlet off the North Pacific, this rainforest community cohabitates with black and brown bears, moose, wolves, wolverines and wildcats, eagles, ravens and magpies, seagulls and falcons, tweety birds and great-horned owls.
These photos were shot above the Kalalau Valley and put to music. The sun was setting in the western sky and our shadows were cast with a rainbow halo on the clouds hundreds of feet below.
When visiting places like this or any others, please leave them better than you found them.
Siting on thin ice, deep, cold water, glacier stream flowing swiftly... Apache Shaman David Lakota sitting on a remote river in Alaska playing the flute and chanting to the Earth Mother, Nature, Spirit, Self and All.
He knows he's in danger. One slip and he plunges into the deep, cold, glacier water. It's easy to die in a situation like this. He can be swept downstream under the ice and be drowned or die of hypothermia. The water is cold enough to kill someone in less than fifteen minutes.
Trusting he is, though, and not prone to take risks beyond those inherent with travel and exploration into known and unknown regions of Alaska's wilderness.
A million-acre wilderness area with no motoboats or planes allowed. Pristine, quiet paradise on the border of Canada and the US. "This is Americs's favorite wilderness." it says on the cover of The Boundary Water Journal.
This video represents a lifetime of work searching for a way to earn a decent living doing what I love. This is one of the highlights so far... exploring, discovering and sharing the beauty, mystery and wildness of nature with others.
Your viewing of this helps make a difference in Outdoor Education and the sustenance of our ecology.
I dedicate this to my son, Aidan "Little-bo" Hunter O'Donnell. This recording is from a young boy on the Big Island of Hawaii. The footage is from Southcentral, Alaska. Here is what Girdwood Television Channel 6 director had to say about it...
