aloha i got responcse about Haole's, its much different when you use the term haole here in hawaii versus its use on the mainland. here they get very offended and on the mainland it like what you talking about.
i can not watch one red neck addressing another red neck in the presents of a kanaka maoli and degrading our culture in front of us with NO mana, No respect and think its alright.
stay warm out there and in the future come back home, especially to raise your ohana, they need our sacred 'aina to be taught the Mana of our Kupuna's.
Blessings to you and yours....................~da princess~

Sorry, Yes I know Mike and James was in Japan just recently for a concert sometime in Feb I think, James had called me to see if I wanted to go with them, they were thinking of taking the halau girls and some old alaka'i's
myself, Nanea, Briana. We went with them to Japan in 2005, for concerts in Tokyo, and it sounded like they were going to do that again, but I have alot of kuleana here at home, I teach in my kids elementary school Hawaiiana in the Kupuna program, my kids are active in sports and extra activities and Church is an important part of our lives too now, so a few years ago, it wasn't as busy, so I could go Japan, but, not now. Did I give you Kimo's # 384-4529 and Mike 561-2292 ( not sure if it is the most recent though) but Kimo is.
I still hula, ( not the same body) but it's for Ke Akua now, sometimes at parties I hula the traditional hawaiian songs, but would rather dance to Akua.
I have taught hula in the past, and thinking about teaching again, because there are so much request to teach my hula sisters children, but I need to see how to juggle my schedule. My family comes first after Ke Akua.
Life has been good, I was blessed with what we asked for a girl and a boy.
I have a good husband and I am trying to do the best I can in what I do.
Keep in touch, Are you still dancing?
Aloha till next time.
