Hawaiian Word of the Day: ho’okupu

ho’okupu: Tribute, tax, ceremonial gift-giving to a chief as a sign of honor and respect; to pay such tribute; church offering.


Ho’okupu for Prince Jonah Kūhiō Kalaniana’ole Pi’ikoi. This statue commemorates Ali’i Kūhiō at Prince Kūhiō Park in Kōloa. A celebration for aloha hali’a is held annually to honor this great Ali’i who did so much for Hawaiians in his life (1871-1922). http://princekuhio.net/

  1. It was a really nice day to remember Prince Kuhio with my sweet. Was good fun hang with the uncles to.

  2. Yes, real aloha all day long. A precious memory for me….

  3. Hawaiian culture and all its beauty is something that just keeps on giving everyday. Blessings to Prince Jonah. I am in a giving mood and want to “give” not “buy” so this is the best day to do. Aloha to all. Kaulana
