HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - ?Auhea na holo moana o ke kai. ?O Laiana Kanoa-Wong keia me ka hua ?olelo o ka la. Our Hawaiian word of the day is "Moananuiakea" e ?olelo pu kakou "Moananuiakea." Kuli?u ho?i! Moananuiakea is one way of referring to the vast oceanic body of water that is also known as the Pacific. Used in the sentence, "Na ka Moananuiakea e ho?opili mai ia kakou" which is translated as "The Moananuiakea is what connects all of us." Moananuiakea is the greatest body of water on earth, where profound human achievement have taken place for millennia. When Hokule?a raised Tahiti out of the sea in 1976 our Moananuiakea connections were re-lashed and are being strengthened every day. E ola mau ka ?olelo Hawai?i, aloha!
