Māpuna kapu ka hāhā
Haʻa inu, haʻa ola
Haʻa kapu, haʻa noa e

The acknowledgement of our truth is a restorative spring of fresh water. The process holds a brokenness, but we drink of it to live, and we learn from it to thrive. Healing is a private process until the truth becomes free and open.

Hāʻule ka lā

Hāʻule ka pō

Hāʻule ka lani

Hāʻule ka nīʻau

Hōʻale ka lepo pōpolo

The sun falls

The night falls

The heavens fall

The structure falls

The black soil billows

Translation provided by Kuʻulei Perreira-Keawekane:

Application: Huli ka lima i luna, make. Huli ka lima i lalo, ola. A call to take hold of personal agency and re-establish a relationship to the fertile soil that produces food for the self, family, and community.
