Today's Hawaiian Word of the Day is "Pohaku". The word means stone or rock. Pohaku are a foundational element of the Hawaiian culture as it has been used for centuries in several ways including setting the foundation for a house, heiau, lo'i or loko i'a. Pohaku were also shaped to make ko'i or adze that were used to carve wa'a or canoe. The word is also used in the famous mele, "Kaulana Na Pua".
