Admissions Policy at Kamehameha Schools

Non-Hawaiians know they aren't eligible

I'm not Hawaiian, but I am saddened and outraged at the nerve of Kalena Santos, the mother of Brayden Mohica-Cummings, the non-Hawaiian student whose admission to Kamehameha Schools resulted from a lawsuit and judge's court order.
Being adopted by a Hawaiian, as Santos was, does not make a person Hawaiian. Princess Pauahi's trust was set up for a specific reason, and after all these years it has become common knowledge that if you don't have Hawaiian blood, you won't be going to Kamehameha. It is basically an unwritten law among the local people.

If Santos wanted her son to go to a private school, she could have chosen another one. Instead she knowingly put down false information on the application regarding her race, and this tells me that she doesn't care about Bishop Estate or Kamehameha Schools.
