Re: Respecting the Canoe

In a different article Kawika Sands made a point which was really interesting:

Quote
I am a Hawaiian outrigger canoe racing enthusiast. From personal
observations within the sport, although most customs surrounding the
outrigger are observed, very few paddlers (if any) could tell me where
some of the customs originated. How to pronounce certain words. Or
much else about the outrigger other than it came from Polynesia. One of
my first messages to an email discussion group for paddlers talked about
the proper pronunciation of "'iako" ([eee-ahh-koh] NOT [eee-ahh-koo]
which changes the meaning from "outrigger boom" to "a school of fish"!)
.

sound familiar?
