Aloha All,
Memory of that day must include Lilia Wahopaa Kaneihalau who turned 105 years old on 7 Dec 1941. She was only 7 years old when King Kamehameha pronounced the Hawaiian Creed "Ua mau ke ea o ka aina i ka pono" ["Under the blue sky is a land filled with Righteousness"] (on the Hawaiian seal today) She walked to church that morning along a dirt road by the rows of cane. A buzzing plane fired in the dust ahead of her bare feet. She prayed for that "haole" ["white bark": Caucasian] only to find out the possible plane was Japanese.

So who should she have prayed for?    (Me, I'd've kept on prayin' for the haoles.) What was the Hawaiian term for Japanese at time of the attack.  (And keep it clean!)

Hi Larry,
Evidently, she thought the pilot was an American...
later found out the pilot was Japanese...
Whom ever she was praying for...she was praying for him, as she should have.
Aloha,
David

Okay, reformat question, hit "enter":

"Haoles" are Caucasians.  What is the Hawaiian term for Japanese?  AND is it different from other Asians?  Such as Chinese?
