TAKTITIKI / 511032
This month’s patch features the Tactical Tiki. In Polynesian culture, Tiki (or Ki’i) represents the first man formed. Hawaiian creation myth tells of the god, Kāne, who created Ki’i by mixing red earth from the four corners of the Earth with saliva. Years later, modeling the act of ‘creation by unification’ set forth by Kāne, 18th Century warrior, Kamehameha, fulfilled the prophesy of a united Hawaii by bringing the separate islands of Hawai’i, Maui, O’ahu, Moloka’i, and Kaua’i together and becoming their first king. As Kamehameha conquered the islands, his war cry was, “Imua e nā poki'i a inu i ka wai 'awa'awa, 'a'ohe hope e ho'i mai ai.” In English, this translates to: “Forward my young brothers [and sisters] and drink of the bitter waters [of battle] for there is no turning back [until we are victorious].”
There is much to be learned from the Great King Kamehameha - his bravery and adaptability in battle, his influence in humanitarian laws of war, and his fortitude. On August 21st, 1959, the U.S. Territory of Hawaii was granted statehood, becoming the 50th State in the Union. This month, we celebrate Hawaiian culture and history with our Tactitiki patch, A sturdy waterproof TPR patch featuring 3 colorways and extruded 3D texture.
Unique to this month, one of three limited colorways will be randomly selected at time of shipment.
