The Meaning of Aloha

The Meaning of Aloha
“Aloha” is probably the most widely known Hawaiian word, and it’s printed on a lot of our shirts and totes too! Aloha is more than just a word, as it’s an important part of Native Hawaiian culture.

Aloha is often used to both mean hello and goodbye, but it’s more than just a greeting! The word is found in all Polynesian languages and usually has the same basic meaning of love, compassion, and kindness. In Hawai’i, it takes on an extra seriousness and the word also guides people in living their lives. Living your life this way means that you are positively influencing those around you with your spirit. Aloha is so important in Hawaiian culture that Hawai’i even has an “Aloha Spirit Law” stating that each person must “think and emote good feelings to others” and describes the character traits of kindness, unity, agreeableness, humility, and patience that Aloha means.

When wearing one of our shirts or totes with “Aloha” printed on them, be sure to remember the deeper meaning of Aloha, and treat others around you with love and respect! Shop our Aloha Collection for all things Aloha!
