Hawaiians are not actually part of the Asian group. They are actually Pacific Islanders, like the Samoans, Tongans, and Tahitians. But I figured everyone would love to hear about them.
There are a number of specifically Hawaiian celebrations, festivals, and events in Hawaii. Of course, every day is a celebration of the islands and it’s native culture wherever you go—the beaches, the tropical plants and fruits, the music, the dancing, and the luaus.
