Hawaiian Word of the Day: April 28th

Our Hawaiian Word of the Day is k?hea meaning to call out, cry out, invoke, greet, or name. You may not use the word, but you hear its application often when you watch a hula performance and hear one or more of the dancers call out the first lines of a stanza as a cue to the chanter. Put stress on the first vowel.
