Mysterious and Elusive.
My Hawaiian side has been just that, mysterious and elusive. They are hard to trace. I have so few photos, and the faces in the photos are so unfamiliar to me.
The little girl Denise, in the photos below, I believe may be a KALAI. I remember when I was little visiting the KALAI's, and if I remember correctly some of the children's names were Denise, Doreen and Danny. I don't remember if there were any more children, but I do remember these three.
The little girl - holding the doll - in one of the other photos, is most likely a KAHANA. I was told she was my Mother, but I don't think she is. The smile is all wrong. My Mother's smile showed more of her teeth. I think she may be one of my Mom's sisters.
I have no idea who the adults are in the last two pictures, however, they do appear to be related, or at the very least Hawaiian.
If you have any idea who any of these people are, please do not hesitate to leave your comments.
