I know there are a lot of people from (or have a special place in their heart for) Hawaii in the area. I did some research before I moved here to see if there was at least a small Hawaiian community here. I found an article online that said there was..of course, it was from several years ago but they couldn't have all left, could they? I know there are some Hawaiian restaurants too which I have yet to check out. I also noticed some people posting about HI in this forum. So, where can I find my bruddahs and sistahs from the aina? I just moved from Seattle area and there is a huge community there that took me word of mouth (literally, usually from the restaurants) to find. Hoping someone might have some good info or direction here... ?
Mahalo!

There is an abundant amount of Hawaiian people here. I have a lot of Phillipino Friends. My best friend is also Pacific Islander.


Usually the best way is through the U of A. That is the best way to congregate people, what's your age?

Thanks! I keep hearing there is a Hawaiian community - so I asked here, but no one responded for a while. I REALLY appreciate you responding because I was getting a bit worried. I'm 33 - and actually hopefully going to be going to UofA one day - eh, starting life all over again. Hehe! Can you point me in the right direction? I'm about to find the Hawaiian restaurants out here and ask the people there soon...but would love it if I could find an organization or event so that I'm not bugging people who are just trying to work. :-)

My suggestion is to go to an advisor at the UofA. Enroll into a class, and perhaps take a cultural class regarding Pacific Islander Studies.

I know about two dozen of Hawaiian people personally. In my age range. So they are there.



I just happen to like to associate with people of Pacific Islander decent and I'm caucasian. I think its because I dated a hawaiian guy last year. And basically now our friends are all pacific islander.
