Mamalahoe – Law of the Splintered Paddle
Guaranteed the safety of the highways to all, be they men, women, children, sick, or aged.
We take this law to heart in the club, in that we feel that our club is a safe and nurturing place for all who want to paddle and everyone is welcome.
We also want to perpetuate the club in living by some simple principles.
Imi`ike – to seek knowledge
Pono – to be moral and proper
Malama – to care for each other
Laulima – to work cooperatively
Lokomaika`i – to share
Ha`aha`a – to be humble
Na`au pono – to possess a deep sense of justice
If we take these principles and incorporate them into our everyday lives, we can then look at ourselves and say that we live as Hawaiians.
As a member of Ka Mamalahoe Canoe Club, I promise to live up to these principles and perpetuate them to the best of my abilities.
