For my family and friends ™


Got some interesting emails from Hawaiians. One of whom told me that hes surprised and offended at those people on the PBS show who call themselves hapa LOL:


I sorta stumbled into your page after watching a show on PBS about Hapa people then doing a search for "Hapa". I myself am Hapa Haole and have referred to myself as such my whole life. I am the same mix as you but I was born and raised on the Mainland. My mom is Kama'aina from the Big Island. Pahala if you are familiar. She's Hawaiian, Chinese, Portuguese. My dad is Caucasian of Welch descent. I was shocked to see these people on the PBS show calling themselves Hapa. They're NOT hapa. I mean they may be HALF something but unless they are somehow from tied to Hawaii I don't see them as being Hapa. Am I wrong?

Anyway, check out my website its kind old and maybe stay broke already. What eva."
