Behind the Name

What does it mean?

Kaulumaika means "the disc used in playing the Hawaiian's sport of bowling". In the game maika, a round disc shaped from stone is rolled by the players of the game through 2 sticks placed a distance away from the players. There are multiple versions of the game, but the object of rolling the stone towards the target is included in all versions. Before stones were used, ulu (breadfruit) was cut up to be used as the discs hence the name "ulumaika". The ulumaika symbolizes being in perpetual motion headed towards a common goal.
