When you’re on the water, you might find yourself putting in some hana while fishing for au or kawakawa. Take it back to the shore to kaukau — dress it with bagoong or serve it with crack seed and wai. If you come across a woman with an opu, she might huhu if you ask when she’s expected to hanau. After she does, make sure to raise a glass and say “Okole maluna!”
