When I first got to Hawaii this past May, I of course googled shaka because Hawaii. Almost all of the photos I saw were pretty much the same, very simple.
But there’s an important bit that wasn’t obvious to me, and that what those images show is what you are looking at your hand. Look closely at our Shaka Bee (he’s so cute!!). If he was to look at his hand, he’d see the folded fingers. That’s done correctly — what someone else sees is the back of your hand, like Racine here at the farm stand showing off her pretty sign.
