Aloha Is... by Kumu Paikai

Aloha kakou Kanoelani Ohana,

What does aloha mean to you? Some Hawaiian words have a multiplicity of meanings incorporated into one word. Aloha is one... love, greeting, farewell, to love, beloved.
Aloha...
"To learn what is not said, to see what cannot be seen, to know the unknowable." by Queen Liliuokalani.
"Aloha is love in Hawaiian it's something we express without even trying." by Tammy Paikai.

In 4th grade we always start the class with the Oli Aloha by Kupuna Nani Kahaunaele:
Akahai me ka lokahi
'Olu'olu me ka ha'aha'a
Ahonui me ke aloha
Aloha i na mamo a pau
Aloha i na mamo a pau
He inoa no na pua 'o Kanoelani
Aloha no, aloha no, aloha no

If you break down the oli by the words you will get five kinds of aloha. The first word Akahai, is a word that shows kindness, gentleness, being unpretentious, unassuming, unobtrusive. I would like to thank Mrs. Kunihisa for this opportunity to share my aloha with all of you. At Kanoelani, aloha is choose love and live aloha. "Aloha is" the name for my new contribution to the Kanoelani Chronicle. I look forward to sharing my culture with all of you each month. Aloha is building the Ha and emotional quotient in every student. My question to you is, "What kind thing have you done today?"
