Hawaiian Word of the Day: Uluhaimalama

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

The Hawaiian word of the day is uluhaimalama.

During Queen Liliuokalani's imprisonment in Iolani palace in 1895, she was forbidden from receiving any news of the current political situation in the kingdom. But daily, flowers were brought to her from her garden in Uluhaimalama, in Pauoa valley, and these flowers were wrapped in newspapers. It was these newspapers that kept the queen informed of the happenings in her kingdom while under house arrest. The Hawaiian word of the day is uluhaimalama.
