Aloha kakou! Welcome everyone!

This community is about Hawai'i, Hawaiian culture, Hawaiian issues, and the Hawaiian people. While other communities and websites focus on the marketing version of Hawai'i trying to sell Hawai'i and/or her beauty, this community focuses on the real Hawai'i.

You do NOT have to be Hawaiian to join! All you need is an interest in Hawai'i.

Want to learn the Hawaiian language?:

The Kamehameha Schools which is the only school for Hawaiians has free Hawaiian language lessons online available to everyone here:

http://ksdl.ksbe.edu/kulaiwi/


There are 30 lessons.

Enjoy!



Some of the topics that we cover here are:

- current events in Hawai'i
- Hawaiian language
- Hawaiians and how they relate and are related to Hawai'i
- Hawaiian history
- hula
- news from the Hawaiian Islands
- pictures of Hawai'i
- arrangements to meet in Hawai'i (At your own risk.)
- and much more.


Rules:

1. Anything relating to Hawai'i is welcome here. Want to know something about Hawai'i? Want to meet someone in Hawai'i? Ask here! (At your own risk.) Want to just read what others have to say about Hawai'i? Then feel free to lurk.

2. Please do not post nude pictures of the pornography sort. If they are artistic then it might be permissible.

3. If you are advertising another community, only Hawai'i-related communities are allowed to be posted here. All others will be quickly deleted.

4. You may only post about your community once. (Everyone despises spam.)

5. If you don't like Hawai'i or are against "race mixing" then please don't join.

6. Racism will not be tolerated.

7. Do not harass other members.

8. Do not violate the LJTOS.
