Hawai‘i Wisdom — November 2018

Hawaiians are seen roasting a pig for a lu‘au, c. 1890.

O ke aka ka ‘oukou o ka ‘i‘o ka mākou.

“Yours the shadow; ours the flesh.”

A phrase used in prayers dedicating a feast to the gods. The essence of the food was the gods’, and the meat was eaten by those present.
