Hawaiian Word of the Day: Onipaa

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Our Hawaiian word of the day is Onipaa. The word Onipaa can be split between the words "oni" which means to shake or shift and "paa" which means affixed or set solid.

When combined, the word Onipaa means steadfast, set solid and immovable. Like the Opihi on the rocks he stays onipaa when the large waves crash upon him.
