Pīpī Holo Ka‘ao – Sprinkled, the Tale Runs/Continues

Pīpī Holo Ka‘ao is a phrase often said after a story is recited to encourage the future retelling of the story. Growing up in a rural community on the island of Kaua‘i, storytelling was a common pastime in my family. As I recall from my youth, our regular family gatherings always consisted of time devoted to sitting around a circle listening to the elders share family stories, folklore, and sacred stories about our island. Those moments were my favorite part of these gatherings and have imprinted the value of storytelling on me. (link above)
