    "Homeland" is the strictest definition.  I believe it's an old Polynesian term.

    Other then Hawaii being the 50th state I'm not aware of any other meanings.

    This is what I found out when I googled it:  (Ha) "From the breath of life"  (Wai) "Comes the water of life"  (i) "which emanates from the supreme".  That was from 'Cha Cha'...sounds good to me.
