n. the long line for the deep sea
Our group’s Hawaiian name, Keaholoa, is a double entendre meaning both, “the long fishing line” and “the long breath.” And like the deep-sea fisherman that inspire our inoa Hawaii, we seek the lonely spaces, casting long lines into the deepest waters searching for opportunities that will sustain our people. We understand that investing for the long-term — taking a long breath to venture deep — is essential to the life and health of the lāhui (Native Hawaiian people).
He lawai‘a no ke kai papa‘u, he pōkole ke aho;
he lawai‘a no ke kai hohonu he loa ke aho.
A fisherman of the shallow sea uses only a short line;
a fisherman of the deep sea uses a long line.
-‘Ōlelo No‘eau #725
