Why Da Kine?
We chose "Da Kine" in remembrance of Cecilia Lopez, the mother of Da Kine Hauling's owner. Ms. Cecilia Lopez was a native Hawaiian, and Portuguese, matriarch who embodied the culture of the Aloha spirit anywhere she went.
In textbook terms, it serves as a "placeholder" word. "Da Kine" is a Hawaiian Pidgin term.
We carry Cecilia Lopez in our hearts and due to her love of travel, we chose her favorite word as the name of our hauling company.
