‘Ike aku, ‘ike mai, kokua aku kokua mai; pela iho la ka nohana ‘ohana

“Recognize others, be recognized, help others, be helped; such is a family relationship.”

Many native Hawaiians live with their extended family and family is the most important part of life for them. This saying teaches why they should put family first. In the ‘ohana, or family, you know others and they know you, you help others and know you will be helped if there is anything you need.
