Literaly: " Forbiden "
Usually the phrase is spoken as a description of an action. For
example: "Smoking is Kapu". Sometimes it will be used by
itself. For example: At the doorway to another room, a sign
may simply say "Kapu" which would mean "Do Not Enter".
Interchangably, it also is used to mean "Taboo" which is a stronger
statement to denote something is REALLY forbidden.
Pronounced " ka poo "
