John Waihe'e, might I suggest that, in order to get more Hawaiians to sign up, you folks make an Ali'i Nui Roll besides.
"The Roll" as it stands now has a maka'ainana face.
From the three corners of The Polynesian Triangle a single Roll is extremely un- attractive. Although Christianity unifies Polynesians and levels them at the feet of Sweet Jesus, the notion persists that there is a noble class. If there is but one "Roll", it necessarily must be the commoner Roll.
A maka' ainana feels uncomfortable seeing her name amongst Ali'i Nui names. This is discouraging.
Likewise, a noble person or Royal person is uncomfortable seeing their name on a list with maka'ainana. Both an Ali'i Nui Roll and a Maka'ainana Roll would be a lot more suitable.
