'Ula [ʔula] means red, I don't know about crimson. Are you going to learn Hawai'ian?! Go Polynesian languages! February is going to be my Polynesian languages month.

'Ula'ula is blood-red. What exactly is crimson? Hawai'ian might not have a word for it.

Crimson is a deep purplish-red. (from dictionary.com).

I did a search on Hawaiian Dictionarys (http://wehewehe.org). I couldn't anything for crimson then I did a search for red which brought up 'ula.

Looking at the synonyms listed I found weo. Weo was defined as -

weo

1. nvs. Red, redness; to blush. See ex., pano. (PCP weo.)

2. n. Dried banana bark, perhaps so called because of a reddish color.

3. n. A variety of taro. Also mana weo (PCP weo.)


This is probably the word you're looking for.
Linguicide IS genocide. :)

He ingoa ōpaki a Riki; he ingoa ōkawa a Ariki.

Riki is an informal name; Ariki is a formal name.
