"Pehea kou piko? piko naʻau?"

Daniel Goya ·
Dr. Kekuni Blaisdell, the widely respected and cultural icon of kanaka maoli (Native Hawaiian) stated that a traditional way for kanaka to greet each other was to say, "Pehea kou piko?" The piko that he is referring to is the belly button- the connection to our mothers through the umbilical cord- as well as our connection (even emotional connection) to the current world that we are living in. Dr. Blaisdell is quoted as saying, "The gut in the tradition of kanaka maoli is the seat of all...

Aloha Jamie, Mahalo for asking a good question. You are right that counseling is going to take some time. Iʻm glad to hear the father is going to get counseling for this keiki. It sounds like the keiki has experienced a lot of changes recently. Moving in and of itself can be challenging for anyone, especially young keiki. Iʻd suggest trying to provide as much structure, routine and consistency as possible and suggesting that the father and child care providers do the same. Predictability and...

I love the phrase "Pehea kou piko?" It brings about a deeper connection with those we touch. I plan on using some of the open-ended questions that are in the article with our teachers. Looking forward to hearing their conversations. Thank you for sharing...

Danny, mahalo for the article. The questions are more open-ended than just saying "How are you doing?" "How are you taking care of yourself?", "What are some things that you have realized that you really don't need." The questions posed in the article brings a more cohesiveness and a deeper conversation starter.
