Hawaiian Word of the Day: March 12th

Our Hawaiian word for today, h?pai, is one most people in Hawai?i already know and use, even in English conversation. It means to carry, and is most often used to describe a woman who is expecting a baby. It also means “to lift, raise, hoist, hold up, or support.”
