Henry Opukahaia


I'm heading to Virginia this Wednesday and whenever I'm in Virginia I feel like Henry Opukahaia (1792 - 1818):



He was considered the first Hawaiian Christian.

However I'm not a Christian. Well I was baptized Protestant against my will when I was a baby at a church in Ka'u on Hawai'i. I was brainwashed I mean... they tried to brainwash me into thinking that I would go to Hell if I didn't accept Jesus Christ into my life. I don't judge those who choose to believe though. My mother is still a firm believer but for me... no... I don't consider myself a Christian. In fact she gets upset with me when I discuss Buddhism lol But to me... they traded Bibles for land and that is not right.

Anyway to some Opukahaia was an "educated" Hawaiian or... a "Haolefied" Hawaiian. That's me... a Haolefied Hawaiian but I can't help it. I'm Haole and Hawaiian lol
