Learn a little Hawaiian in this sing along video

Real Estate Agent with Resort and Second-Home Specialist REALTOR Broker #21673

The Hawaiian language is alive and well here in the islands. Most locals don’t speak it fluently but almost everyone will know the most common words and phrases. Even visitors pick up some basics like Aloha (hello, goodbye, love), Mahalo (thanks), Makai (toward the ocean) and Ono (delicious).

Here’s a fun video filmed at place I get my hair cut in Hanalei. It’s native Hawaiian teacher Tin Tin getting his nails done and singing the colors in Hawaiian.

Always fun to travel and pick up new things I haven't been to Hawaii in a very long time now.
