Two ancient cultures, that of the Native Hawaiian people and the monastic tradition envisioned and documented by Benedict of Nursia in the sixth century C.E. , have survived into the present, despite myriad changes throughout their respective histories. In both cases, their core values have survived across the millennia, and it is those core values that have allowed to both the kanaka maoli and Benedictine women and men to maintain the traditional practices which bind them while, at the same time, adapting to change over time. This study identifies core values common to both cultures and explains how these core values have helped to edify and preserve Hawaiian and Benedictine cultures in the face of significant cultural change.
