DESCRIPTION AND MEANING:

The word ūkaipō means mother, origin, "true home", and we chose it for this armband to simbolyze that the sea is our mother, and our true home, as requested by Damon.

The tiki on the left (protection and fertility) is the divinity blowing life (korus) into the sea (waves), blessing her inhabitants: shark (adaptability and strength), dolphin (joy and friendship), turtle (family, life).

We added symbols of protection and balance (manaia) and abundance (fish hook and coconut palm).
