How do you say “oneness” in Hawai’ian?


Our Hawaiian word of the week is “hookahi” which means “to be one” or or oneness.

Say that with me— hookahi.

Today, we are going to learn about communion— which is “one body, one soul.”

How you say that in Hawaiian is—

Hookahi which means “one” and Kino which means “body.”

And again, Hookahi which means “one” and Uhane which means “soul.”

One body, one soul— in Hawaiian is

“hookahi kino hookahi uhane”

Please repeat that after me:





Sign Language (ASL)

The sign language for hookahi is you hook your fingers together and swirl them twice. [see video]
