How to say “the people, locals, natives” in Hawaiian

Kanaka Maoli

Pastor Vicky shares the importance of reinterpreting sacred holidays and developing traditions that hold meaning for everyone, rather than solely focusing on the history of American settlers. She emphasizes the inclusivity of July 4th, mentioning different ethnic and cultural groups, including Hawaiian people. The Hawaiian word of the week, “kanaka maoli,” translates to “the people” or “the real-kind people,” emphasizing the significance of being native, indigenous, and true to one’s culture. She encourages listeners to repeat the words “kanaka” and “maoli” to embrace the concept of “real people” and the voice of the kanaka maoli.
