Semi-protected edit request on 3 August 2019Edit

Please change "It is the only state where Asian Americans identify as the largest ethnic group" to "It is the only state where people who identify as Asian Americans are the largest ethnic group" You don't "identify as" the largest group, it's a matter of fact.

indigenousEdit

The word indigenous is used several times in reference to certain peoples of Hawaii yet none are indigenous, they're the descendants of settlers.

indigenous should be removed. HardeeHar (talk) 14:34, 5 August 2019 (UTC)


Aren’t we all descendants of settlers, going back to Lucy or Adam and Eve?

Dancing in Hawaii

Hawaii is well-known for their traditional dance the “Hula”. The history behind this Hawaiian dance established in (1894) the story of colonialism and the true meaning behind the culture. The traditional name for the dance was called the “Hula Kahiko”, which was formed from “Ai Kahiko” meaning “in the ancient style”, and it was used to honor, praise, and entertain chiefs. The story-telling dance is told through gentle hand movements. The different hand movements indicate different meanings from appreciating the elements of nature to praising their leaders’ fertility. 209.129.33.201 (talk) 17:29, 3 September 2019 (UTC)
