Hawaiian Word and Hubbell Trading Post


ABC Wednesday is a word meme with participants from around the world. This fabulous meme was created and hosted by Mrs. Denise Nesbitt who hails from Great Britain. Over time, others have joined in to help host this wonderful and informative meme. We are now in our EIGHTH round! Some of the participants have been with this from the very first round; others have joined in along the way. Each week we are taken across the globe to see the varied and exciting contributions people have taken the time to discover and capture. We start with the letter, "A" and each week we post something in regards to the next letter of the alphabet. This week's letter is, "H".


HA


Not as in laughter, ha  (which would be ha, ha, ha). The Hawaiian word for, breath is ha. Pronounced the same way as we do in the English language. Ha.

A very good word for breath. You say it often when you are heaving out a breath, or, at least a variation of it. Ha. See if you can catch yourself doing it.

The Hubbell Trading Post is a National Historic Site and it is still on the original homestead land that was originally on. The significance of this trading post in the history of our nation, let alone the southwest is not normally covered in our school's history curriculum. If you happen to take an art history course of southwest art, you are most likely to learn about it there. If not, go to the link provided! The site is run by the Western National Parks organization which maintains the trading traditions the Hubbell family established.

A breathing ha, so appropriate. Sandstone, my favourite building material, the interior looks as though I could browse in there for some time.
