How do I know? I'm a Blonde Hawaiian with a Haole Name (first and surname). My middle name is Hawaiian so it's difficult to tell that I'm Hawaiian though a few people where I live have guessed that I was Hawaiian LOL I really think it's because I look mixed, Asian with Haole and that many people mistakenly think that correlates to being Hawaiian. It does not. It's in the iwi or "bones." That's why to say "Hawaiian" in Hawaiian is "oiwi" or... "OF THE BONES." I know... difficult concept for some to understand but some reading may help.
Anyway I hope he agrees to an interview. Laters!
