Akahai, meaning kindness, to be expressed with tenderness;
Lokahi, meaning unity, to be expressed with harmony;
Oluolu, meaning agreeable, to be expressed with pleasantness;
Haahaa, meaning humility, to be expressed with modesty;
Ahonui, meaning patience, to be expressed with perseverance.
These traits are actually pursued by the Hawaiian people who wish to embody character that express the charm, warmth and sincerity of Hawaii's people. It was the philosophy of native Hawaiians, and was presented as a gift to the people of Hawaii. Aloha is more than a greeting, farewell, or form of address. Aloha is an expression of mutual regard and affection, and extends warmth and caring, with no obligation in return. Aloha is the essential element in relationships where each person is important to every other person, as a whole. Aloha means to hear what is not said, to see what cannot be seen, and to know the unknowable.
