Hawaiian Word of the Day: Haloa

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

The Hawaiian word of the day is Haloa.

In one Hawaiian creation story, a god and goddess mate and have a son named Haloa. But he's stillborn. So they take him outside and bury him in a patch of land and it is said that from his grave, the very first kalo grew. Eventually, the god and goddess have a second son, whom they named after their elder son, Haloa. And this Haloa becomes the foundation of the Hawaiian race.

The Hawaiian word of the day is Haloa.
