ONLINE FITSTRIKE EXCLUSIVE: KAMEHAMEHA DAY SNAPBACK

Releasing exclusively online this Thursday, June 11 at 11am HST.

KAMEHAMEHA

Aloha kākou!

Moʻolelo by Kauwila

In celebration of Kamehameha Day we dedicate this hat and moʻolelo.

Kamehameha I has many monikers which appear in moʻolelo and mele (songs). One of those names is “Amamalua” which could be interpreted as “The Double Sacrifice.” Amamalua is a traditional ceremony to “shake up the system.” Kamehameha I with some guidance from his kahuna made the surreptitious move to sacrifice Imakakoloa at the same time as Kiwalao (who had higher rank) was offering up a pig. This is the first human sacrifice Kamehameha I made and activated Ku who would later become his war-god. The Amamalua was one of the key ceremonies that activated his forceful uniting of the Hawaiian Islands. When the sacrificing was completed, the body of Imakakakoloa was returned to Kiwalao. In this way, the ceremony and Kamehameha became named Amamalua. In this telling of the moʻolelo of Kamehameha, the nights that the Amamalua ceremony are used are omitted. This portion of Ka Moʻolelo Hawaii (The History of Hawaii) was published months after the coup d’état of Queen Liliuokalani in the Hawaiian Kingdom.

In the moʻolelo of Makalei which takes place in Kawainui, Oahuakakuhihewa, the ceremony is celestialized. The ceremony pops up in a chant done by Haumea for her grandson Kahinihiniula, the younger brother of Kamapuaa. Haumea is sprinkling special water into the eyes of Kahinihiniula so that he could see and understand star practices while looking down into a ipu (gourd) Kiloʻopua of Lono. The mele suggests, the ceremony is done on two nights of the “kauila kapu”, a kapu for Ku and for Hua to whom Hoʻohokulani’s kapu is broken.

To celebrate Kamehameha Day, weʻre releasing a black Kamehameha 9FIFTY snapback featuring black trucker mesh around the sides and back, along with white embroidery on the front, black and white embroidery on the side and back, and a white snap enclosure to finish the look.

FITSTRIKE RELEASE: EXODUS TEES

Monday, June 8th, 2020 by

Releasing exclusively in-store and online this Tuesday, June 9 at 11am HST.

Aloha kākou!

Exodus, its lyrics written decades in the past could not be more fitting for the now. As we proceed through all that is going on the world, many of us seek leadership to remedy the issues that seem to be mounting by the day. Instead of looking without for the answers, we must look within.

If one seeks change, do not proceed blindly. Understanding and comprehension of what one seeks to achieve is essential, for not knowing the path and destination does not allow one to move with intention.

Change will not happen overnight. Ultimately, the decisions and actions we make now will be passed down to the generations to come. Be a leader amongst those around you. Do not simply shake the leaves hope for the best. Plant the seed, which will set firm roots, that will one day bear the fruit that will nurture the future.

This Tuesday, we’re releasing a new tee design inspired by the uplifting and uniting words of Bob Marley and the Wailers’ anthem, Exodus. The front features our small Glitch logo on the wearer’s left chest, while the back features the entire lyric sheet of Exodus typed out and stylized through layout to really show movement through the flow of the words. The back also features our geographical coordinates and a small crown near the top. Both black and white versions of the tee feature shades of grey print.
