look up any word, like thot:
 
1.
THE HEAVENS, THE SKY, THE ROYAL ONE (in Hawaiian);

FORGIVENESS: derivation of Kala-kala (formal and binding statement to the effect: I release you from the wrong, thus I may be released from it) - the official unentanglement of all parties

(This is where the word kalana comes from, and why it doesn't just mean 'forgiveness' in the English sense, because that denotes blame and victimization, but 'forgiveness' as a recognition that the world is not a perfect place, and none of us are perfect beings.)
Kalana as a pro-noun; or for use in Hawaiian language
