NATIVE HAWAIIAN DESIGN
The Fishing for the People design originates from a playful ʻōlelo noʻeau (Hawaiian proverb) put together by the team at Maoli.
“Aia i ka huki uhu.”
“Gone to haul uhu fish.”
The story behind the proverb relates the uhu (parrotfish) to a gorgeous person. The proverb says you have, “gone to haul uhu fish” and implies that you have “gone to get a person.” Wear this shirt to subtly let the room know that you (the wearer) are interested in all people.
The uhu fish is not only a very popular reef fish to eat, but also has some very interesting biology. The uhu has a rather unique ability to change its sex over its lifetime.
