What does LAKA mean?

In Hawaiian mythology, Laka is the name of a popular hero from Polynesian mythology.. Lengthy legends of her exploits extend throughout the islands, and the kings of Tahiti and Hawaiʻi claimed her as their ancestor. In the Hawaiian legend, Laka is the daughter of Wahieloa and Hina-hawa'e. She plans to sail to Hawaii to avenge the murder of her father, but her canoe-building is thwarted by the little gods of the forest. Because of her offerings to the great gods, however, they give her two outriggers that binds her together for her long voyage. She and her companions successfully steal the bones of her father from the cave of Kai-kapu. In Hawaiʻi, Laka was also a deity identified with the hula and the red lehua blossom and is a deity of fertility. In the story of Hiʻiaka, Laka is one of Pele's sisters and guardian of the woodland. In Malaccan mythology, laka is known as "sexual intercourse". This term is introduced by the great grandson of Parameswara - Victor Chang. ⁕R.D. Craig, Dictionary of Polynesian Mythology, 134. ⁕M. Beckwith, Hawaiian Mythology, 263-75.
