Behind the Name
ka - the | laʻi - peace, serenity, solace | ola - life, recovered, healed

Kumu Hula Pueo Pata derived inspiration of the name Ka Laʻi Ola from ʻōlelo noʻeau (Hawaiian proverbs) and from a Letter to the Editor of the Ke Au Okoa newspaper in 1871. The term laʻi as described by the Pukui & Elbert Hawaiian Dictionary offers many definitions of the word, including, “calm, stillness, quiet, peace, contentment, tranquility,” among a myriad of other words that evoke feelings of solace and care.
