β€œIn Hawaiian culture, the makau symbolizes safe passage over water as well as prosperity and strength. As long as I can remember, Dad always wore his makau necklace just like his wedding ring; he never took it off.

After he passed away, I had the honor of his makau necklace to be passed down to me.{ 1 } Prior to the pandemic, I traveled frequently for work and his necklace is a wonderful symbol of him and the awesome memories we had and in a way gives me strength and comfort when I am away from my family.”{ 2 } Marc Marquez
