If wa'a isn't going to be translated as waka further on the course like kalo is for taro I'm going to be severely disappointed.

what's wrong with "the canoe paddle is a common thing"? Isn't ka hoe also "the paddle"?

Why not accepted "usual thing"?

Can also be "canoe paddling is customary". Why are the possibilities for translations so limited???
