1) Hawaiian Wanna Bes including but not limited to Wanna Be Hapas (who are Hawaiian Wanna Bes) are co-opting our bones and our ancestors' bones. Yes... I have a zero tolerance for this out of respect for my ancestors.
2) Many non-Hawaiians do not understand us nor our language. I admit that the Hawaiian language can be cryptic but it's such a beautiful language. It's poetry. Literally. That may be why many people do not understand when we speak because for many of us our heritage includes being cryptic and thus they are unable to decipher our words.
3) It's time for Hawaiians to change and adapt and reveal some bones... in order to survive.
Anyway here are the pics *LOL*
At the 2004 Noelani Craft and Children's Fair at Noelani Elementary School, Marie Rewick, 10, and 9-year-olds Nicole Higa, Lyndi Kimura, Jana Kakugawa and Taylor Higa enjoyed their shave ice, since it was hot and humid in Manoa yesterday. They belong to the Sakura Soccer girls team.
Three-year-old Katrina Trifonovitch ate all of her cotton candy (she even started to eat the paper cone, when her mother, Kelli Abe Trifonovitch, took it away).
