Ua is the Hawaiian word for rain. Ua is beloved because it preserves our land and our life. Our kupuna were so observant and in tune with nature, that ua are named and associated poetically with particular places. Many of our inoa ua, or rain names, refer to the action of the rain and its effects on plants, people and the environment.
