    “Yes, it means KEEP GOING, and is used as encouragement when someone falters or fails at something”.

    Sounds like the perfect word to define this year’s Hawai’i Warrior football team.

    Kam School!!!!

    The first thing they teach you at Kamehameha School is that it is not Kam School. Kam is Chinese. It may be cumbersome to say all the syllables but it is Kamehameha School. Imua.

    Anyone know what ho’i pa’a means?

  • Mo Hoyal October 15, 2016, 4:13 am

    Imua means to “go forward” as in encouragement to not look back but to be strong and continue ahead! I’m from the islands and one of our Hawaiian schools had this for their motto!

    Ikiaka means strong.

    Oh ya, Kamehameha High School, I remember it well and also a drop dead gorgeous football player named Kimo Peltier!
