It is Molokaʻi or Molokai?

The state of Hawaiʻi is made up of eight main islands. One of the islands is named Molokai, but sometimes Molokaʻi (with the ʻokina mark). Both versions are heard from native of the islands as well as non-natives. So, what is the right answer?

In this episode, special guest Kanoelani Davis returns to talk about this topic. She is a native of Molokai, so this was a perfect conversation to record so we all can learn about this together.

This also brings light to the importance of names and its pronunciation.

About the Podcast

Sharing Aloha
Aloha can change the world
The word "Aloha" is familiar around the world. But how many people know what it actually means in the Hawaiian language? It's more than a greeting, more than "love", and actually more than you can translate into English. It's a feeling, it's a relationship, it's the exchange of life.

"Sharing Aloha" is a podcast that will share the essence of "Aloha" through storytelling, inspirational talks, fun facts of Hawaiian history, and much more.

The world today can be so negative. In times of a pandemic, living day to day is becoming more difficult than ever. So "Sharing Aloha" is here to give you a dose of positivity to uplift your day while hopefully motivating and educating you at the same time.

"The amount you give will determine the amount you get back."
