Aloha kākahiāka e Hau’ōli aloha Pō’aōno nā Kānaka. Aʻia i kā ʻōlelo nō keʻola, aʻia i kā ʻōlelo no ka make. Ō kā maluhia nō me ʻoe.
Good morning and Happy Saturday, People. In speech is life, in speech is death. In ancient Hawai’i, a kahuna ‘ana’ana could pray someone to death or counter another’s death prayer. The saying tells the Hawaiians that words can either be a source for healing or destroying and so we need to be careful with our words. Peace be with you.
