I love this picture.

I just noticed this picture of "Hawaiians eating poi in front of a grass house, circa 1880" courtesy of the Honolulu Advertiser:

One of the few things that I inherited from my kupuna are ancient poi pounders as well as poi pounding boards. I treasure them over anything else.

Anyway I like this picture because it shows how Hawaiians have evolved and adapted. Unfortunately this is often overlooked. Instead the media rarely if ever shows us. Either that or they make like we invisible so it's refreshing to see more pictures of Hawaiians because yes... we still exist.

I'm certainly not going anywhere hehe
