Hawaii Five-0 kicked off production on season five in Honolulu today with a traditional Hawaiian blessing in honor of its host Hawaiian culture, while on location in Waikiki. Series stars Alex O'Loughlin, Daniel Dae Kim, Jorge Garcia, Taylor Wiley, Dennis Chun and Al Harrington, as well as the producers and the entire Hawaii Five-0 crew, participated.

Kahu (Officiant) Kauila Kawelo Barber, the show's Hawaiian Language and Protocol Advisor, officiated over the ceremony, which included traditional royal maile leis, Oli Aloha (welcoming chant), and Pule Ho'oku'u (closing prayer). In honor of the show's fifth season, the ceremony centered around the Hawaiian word 'elima, which means both five and hand.
