Hale Kuamo‘o Mo‘ohua “Word of the Week”: Molale

Once a week, a single ‘ōlelo Hawai‘i word is introduced along with its meaning and an example sentence of its usage. This week’s word is “Molale.”

Each week, Hale Kuamo‘o, the University of Hawai‘i at Hilo’s Hawaiian Language Center, posts a new “Word of the Week” as part of a weekly series of short videos called Mo‘ohua.

Once a week, a single ‘ōlelo Hawai‘i word is introduced along with its meaning and an example sentence of its usage.

This week’s word is “Molale” with Hawaiian studies student Hi‘ilani Viluan.

Greetings to all our friends of the Mo‘ohua project! “Molale” is the word of the week. The meaning of molale is clear, serene and unobstructed. Here is “molale” in a sentence: “Many people are awestruck by Maunakea’s beauty on a day that is molale.” That’s all, mahalo nui!
