Salt of the Earth

Salt of the Earth describes Makai, with deep roots going back to great grandparents immigrating here to work for Parker Ranch. The expression describes a good, reliable person who works hard.

Over the centuries, salt has been used as a measure of wealth, coveted for trade, and even caused war! Essential for life, it is used for seasoning, preservation, cultural practices, and cleansing.
