Heal!

:P

7. It means "foreign" or "foreigner"
Often a derogatory term. But it's sort of an inside joke with my husband and I, because they always call him "little bra" (thinking he is an island boy) but I have Native American heritage while he is of Indian decent (from India). Sorry the explanation was so long.

30. interesting
I take it Haole is Indian, and they often call foreigners/outsiders by that term? I often call my wife Lao Wai, (lao why), which is Chinese for "foreigner/outsider" - it's a very common term for Chinese to use with foreigners, though it can also be derogatory, it's often not. However, when my wife & her mom were speaking in Chinese complaining about "lao wai", I stopped them to say that in this country, they were the Lao Wai, and I've been using that for my wife ever since.

33. I thought it was a surfer thing
or Hawaiian.

I'm leaning toward Hawaiian. It seems like that was what my aunt said they called her.

Hey "how-lee"

37. Nope
you didn't.

It's just one of those colloquialism type things you may not ever know even if you visit Maui 3 times a year.

But! If you visit Hawaii once and slip out into the local's area and try to score weed or a good local bar, you may just hear "haole" more than once :D

:)

Also sounds kinda "beachy," so it fits in with BeachBaby's new name.

21. Reminds me of a line from North Shore
"When you gonna stop calling me haole?"

"When you're not haole anymore, haole."

41. I wonder if they still have "beat haole" day in Hawaiian schools.
:(

Thankfully I went to a school with other military kids. We didn't have that, but the kids that lived off base had to deal with it.

Your use of it is a nicer context.

45. Well...OK
Interesting name choice but now I think I'm going to get you confused with the DU'er (who admittedly doesn't post much here anymore) known as Haele every time I see your posts. But still it's a creative name and, once I've gotten used to it, I'll probably like it :thumbsup:
