Ohana is the word for family in Hawaiian, but it means much more than mother, father, sister and brother.
In Hawaiian culture, the word ʻohana means family in an extended sense of the term, including blood-related, adoptive or intentional.
The concept emphasizes that families are bound together and members must cooperate and remember one another.
Ohana means family and family means no one is left behind or forgotten.

This site is called Toledo Jacobs, but it could just as easily be called The Jacobs Ohana.
