Shaka, or hang loose, is a welcome gesture that originated from Hawaiian culture. Its origin is shrouded in legends. One Hawaiian old story says that the origins of the Shaka are down to just one man. The now mythical resident of Laie lost three fingers of his hand while working in a sugar mill. The Incident left him with only the thumb and pinky on one of his hands. After the accident, he went to guard the sugar train, often waving it “clear” with his mutilated hand. Children along the island often saw him do it and adopted the sign.
