What does Kahawai mean?

A Conduit for Creativity

In Ancient Hawaii, kahawai– streams running from the mountains to the ocean –enabled the Hawaiians to develop the most efficient cultivation methods of their time. A stream was the life force of a community, and water itself –wai– was revered as a symbol of prosperity.
