Does "Mai Huli 'Oe I Kakua O Ke Kai" mean Never turn your back on the ocean or respect the ocean?
Aloha, I was planning on getting a tatoo that said "Mai Huli 'Oe I Kakua O Ke Kai" which I interprete as Never turn your back on the Ocean. I am getting this as a reminder of the great gulf oil leak and a reminder to myself and other that with out the ocean we could not survive. Does this tatoo work for what I want it to do or does it have a completely different meaning?
I'm so sorry I didn't see this question before. Yes, it does. Sometimes it's also used to imply hazardous beach conditions. I believe it's more about the power of the ocean and how dangerous it can be if you underestimate it than a statement about how we cannot survive without it.
