Customs and etiquette in Hawaii are customs and general etiquette that are widely observed in the Hawaiian Islands. In most cases, these will be observed by long-time residents and Native Hawaiians. Some customs are unique to certain ethnic groups but are commonly observed and known by all residents. It is considered good manners to "make plate", literally making a plate of food from the available spread to take home, or "take plate", literally taking a plate the host of the party has made of the available spread for easy left-overs. It is considered gracious to take the plate, or make a small plate, even if you don't intend to eat it.
This oli offers a word of greeting to guests and to the couple, Wagner says. Leis, or flower garlands, are a symbol of love, respect and Aloha spirit. Grooms usually wear a garland of manly green maile leaves sometimes with small white flowers, called pikake, woven in. In a traditional Hawaiian wedding ceremony, the local minister, often called a kahuna pule or kahu Hawaiian holy manwould bind the couple's hands together with a maile lei more on that later.
Brides often wear several strands of pink and white pikake, which can be entwined with orchids or rosebuds. The bride might also wear a headpiece of haku flowers and greenery. Some couples present their mothers with lei, while at smaller weddings, sometimes couples gift each guest one. The Hawaiian ring blessing typically only takes place at beach weddings, as it requires water. For this tradition, Wagner explains that both of the rings are placed in a Hawaiian wood bowl.
The bride then holds the bowl while the groom holds a conch shell filled with ocean water. The minister blesses the rings by dipping a leaf in the salt water from the conch shell and sprinkling it over the rings.
The maile lei used is made with dark green vines that are twisted together. Brightman says that sometimes decorated with pikake or white orchid. Whether you are a born-and-bred Hawaiian twosome, or if this is your first time visiting the Aloha state, you might want to know some of the most romantic words from the language.

Hawaiian music is so romantic, which makes it perfect for a wedding. The slack key guitar and ukelele are the regional instruments that make the music of the islands famous. You can hire local musicians, and you can also hire professional hula dancers to interpret the songs.

The third group of foreigners to arrive in Hawaii were from China. Chinese workers on Western trading ships settled in Hawaii starting in Inthe first American missionaries arrived to preach Christianity and teach the Hawaiians Western ways.
Many are descendants of immigrants brought to work on the sugarcane plantations in the mid-to-late 19th century. The first Japanese immigrants arrived in Hawaii on June 19, They were not approved by the then-current Japanese government because the contract was between a broker and the Tokugawa shogunate -by then replaced by the Meiji Restoration. Almost 13, Portuguese migrants had arrived by ; they also worked on the sugarcane plantations. English and Hawaiian are listed as Hawaii's official languages in the state's constitution, in Article XV, Section 4.
As of the Census, After English, other languages popularly spoken in the state are TagalogJapanese and Ilocano. Significant numbers of European immigrants and their descendants also speak their native languages; the most numerous are German, Portuguese, Italian and French.
The Hawaiian language has about 2, native speakers, about 0. These Polynesians remained in the islands; they eventually became the Hawaiian people and their languages evolved into the Hawaiian language.
That form was developed mainly by American Protestant missionaries between and They assigned to the Hawaiian phonemes letters from the Latin alphabet. Interest in Hawaiian increased significantly in the late 20th century. With the help of the Office of Hawaiian Affairs, specially designated immersion schools in which all subjects would be taught in Hawaiian were established. The University of Hawaii developed a Hawaiian language graduate studies program.
Municipal codes were altered to favor Hawaiian place and street names for new civic developments. Hawaiian distinguishes between long and short vowel sounds. It is written as a symbol similar to the apostrophe or left-hanging opening single quotation mark. During the 19th century, the increase in immigration-mainly from China, Japan, Portugal-especially from the Azores and Madeiraand Spain-catalyzed the development of a hybrid variant of English known to its speakers as pidgin.
By the early 20th century, pidgin speakers had children who acquired it as their first language. HCE speakers use some Hawaiian words without those words being considered archaic. For example, tuna fish is often called by its Hawaiian name, ahi. HCE speakers have modified the meanings of some English words. For example, "aunty" and "uncle" may either refer to any adult who is a friend or be used to show respect to an elder.
Syntax and grammar follow distinctive rules different from those of General American English. For example, instead of "it is hot today, isn't it? During the surfing boom in Hawaii, HCE was influenced by surfer slang. Some HCE expressions, such as brah and da kinehave found their ways elsewhere through surfing communities. Christianity is the most widespread religion in Hawaii, mainly represented by various ProtestantsRoman Catholics and Mormons.
The second-most popular religion is Buddhismespecially among the archipelago's Japanese community. Unaffiliated account for one-quarter of the population. When the Hawaiian Reformed Catholic Church, a province of the Anglican Communionwas merged into the Episcopal Church in the s following the overthrow of the Kingdom of Hawaii, it became the seat of the Episcopal Diocese of Hawaii. The largest denominations by number of adherents were the Roman Catholic Church withadherents inthe Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints with 68, adherents inthe United Church of Christ with congregations and 20, members, and the Southern Baptist Convention with congregations and 18, members.
According to data provided by religious establishments, religion in Hawaii in was distributed as follows:. A Pew poll found that the religious composition was as follows:.
Note: Births in this table do not add up, because Hispanics are counted both by their ethnicity and by their race, giving a higher overall number. Hawaii has had a long history of LGBT identities. Cook's second lieutenant and co-astronomer James King observed that "all the chiefs had them", and recounts that Cook was actually asked by one chief to leave King behind, considering the role a great honor.
How would you know if he was going to be the warrior that would protect you at all costs, if he wasn't your lover? Nonetheless, in Hawaiian language publications its metaphorical meaning can still mean either "friend" or "lover" without stigmatization. The number of same-sex couple households in was 3,; a The history of Hawaii's economy can be traced through a succession of dominant industries: sandalwoo whalingsugarcane, pineapplethe military, tourism and education.
Since statehood intourism has been the largest industry, contributing These industries play a small role in the Hawaiian economy, due to the shipping distance to viable markets, such as the West Coast of the contiguous U. The state's food exports include coffee, macadamia nuts, pineapple, livestock, sugarcane and honey. By weight, honey bees may be the state's most valuable export. Hawaii's relatively consistent climate has attracted the seed industry, which is able to test three generations of crops per year on the islands, compared with one or two on the mainland.
Tax is collected by the Hawaii Department of Taxation. Hawaii residents pay the most per person in state taxes in the United States. The Hawaii Tax Foundation considers the state's tax burden too high, which it says contributes to higher prices and the perception of an unfriendly business climate. State Senator Sam Slom says state taxes are comparatively higher than other states because the state government handles education, health care, and social services that are usually handled at a county or municipal level in most other states.
The cost of living in Hawaii, specifically Honolulu, is high compared to that of most major U. While some online stores offer free shipping on orders to Hawaii, many merchants exclude Hawaii, Alaska, Puerto Rico and certain other U. Average electricity prices in October The median home value in Hawaii in the U.
The sale price of single family homes in Hawaii was the highest of any U. Hawaii's very high cost of living is the result of several interwoven factors of the global economy in addition to domestic U. Like other regions with desirable weather throughout the year, such as areas of CaliforniaArizona and FloridaHawaii's residents can be considered to be subject to a " Sunshine tax ".
This situation is further exacerbated by the natural factors of geography and world distribution that lead to higher prices for goods due to increased shipping costs, a problem which many island states and territories suffer from as well. The higher costs to ship goods across an ocean may be further increased by the requirements of the Jones Actwhich generally requires that goods be transported between places within the U.
Jones Act-compliant vessels are often more expensive to build and operate than foreign equivalents, which can drive up shipping costs.
While the Jones Act does not affect transportation of goods to Hawaii directly from Asia, this type of trade is nonetheless not common; this is a result of other primarily economic reasons including additional costs associated with stopping over in Hawaii e.
Therefore, Hawaii relies on receiving most inbound goods on Jones Act-qualified vessels originating from the U.
Hawaiian consumers ultimately bear the expense of transporting goods imposed by the Jones Act. This law makes Hawaii less competitive than West Coast ports as a shopping destination for tourists from countries with much higher taxes like Japan, even though prices for Asian-manufactured goods should be cheaper because Hawaii is much closer than mainland states to Asia. The aboriginal culture of Hawaii is Polynesian. Hawaii represents the northernmost extension of the vast Polynesian Triangle of the south and central Pacific Ocean.
While traditional Hawaiian culture remains as vestiges in modern Hawaiian society, there are re-enactments of the ceremonies and traditions throughout the islands. Plant and animal food sources are imported from around the world for agricultural use in Hawaii. Poia starch made by pounding tarois one of the traditional foods of the islands. Spam musubi is an example of the fusion of ethnic cuisine that developed on the islands among the mix of immigrant groups and military personnel.
In the s, a group of chefs developed Hawaii regional cuisine as a contemporary fusion cuisine. Some key customs and etiquette in Hawaii are as follows: when visiting a home, it is considered good manners to bring a small gift for one's host for example, a dessert.
Thus, parties are usually in the form of potlucks.
Most locals take their shoes off before entering a home. It is customary for Hawaiian families, regardless of ethnicity, to hold a luau to celebrate a child's first birthday. It is also customary at Hawaiian weddings, especially at Filipino weddings, for the bride and groom to do a money dance also called the pandanggo.
Print media and local residents recommend that one refer to non-Hawaiians as "locals of Hawaii" or "people of Hawaii". Hawaiian mythology comprises the legends, historical tales, and sayings of the ancient Hawaiian people. It is considered a variant of a more general Polynesian mythology that developed a unique character for several centuries before circa It is associated with the Hawaiian religionwhich was officially suppressed in the 19th century but was kept alive by some practitioners to the modern day.
Polynesian mythology is the oral traditions of the people of Polynesia, a grouping of Central and South Pacific Ocean island archipelagos in the Polynesian triangle together with the scattered cultures known as the Polynesian outliers.
Polynesians speak languages that descend from a language reconstructed as Proto-Polynesian that was probably spoken in the area around Tonga and Samoa in around BCE. Prior to the 15th century, Polynesian people migrated east to the Cook Islandsand from there to other island groups such as Tahiti and the Marquesas.
The Polynesian languages are part of the Austronesian language family. Many are close enough in terms of vocabulary and grammar to be mutually intelligible. There are also substantial cultural similarities between the various groups, especially in terms of social organization, childrearing, horticulture, building and textile technologies. Their mythologies in particular demonstrate local reworkings of commonly shared tales. There are many Hawaiian state parks.
Hawaiian magazines include Hana Hou! The music of Hawaii includes traditional and popular styles, ranging from native Hawaiian folk music to modern rock and hip hop. Hawaii's musical contributions to the music of the United States are out of proportion to the state's small size. Styles such as slack-key guitar are well known worldwide, while Hawaiian-tinged music is a frequent part of Hollywood soundtracks. Hawaii also made a major contribution to country music with the introduction of the steel guitar.
Traditional Hawaiian folk music is a major part of the state's musical heritage. The Hawaiian people have inhabited the islands for centuries and have retained much of their traditional musical knowledge. Their music is largely religious in nature, and includes chanting and dance music. Hawaiian music has had an enormous impact on the music of other Polynesian islands ; according to Peter Manuel, the influence of Hawaiian music a "unifying factor in the development of modern Pacific musics".
Surfing has been a central part of Polynesian culture for centuries. Since the late 19th century, Hawaii has become a major site for surfists from around the world. Tourism is an important part of the Hawaiian economy. Inaccording to state government data, there were more than 6. The major holidays are the most popular times for outsiders to visit, especially in the winter months.
Substantial numbers of Japanese tourists still visit the islands but have now been surpassed by Chinese and Koreans due to the collapse of the value of the Yen and the weak Japanese economy. The average Japanese stays only five days, while other Asians stay over 9.
Hawaii hosts numerous cultural events.
The annual Merrie Monarch Festival is an international Hula competition. Under the state's plan, businesses are required to provide insurance to employees who work more than twenty hours per week.
Heavy regulation of insurance companies helps reduce the cost to employers. Due in part to heavy emphasis on preventive care, Hawaiians require hospital treatment less frequently than the rest of the United States, while total health care expenses measured as a percentage of state GDP are substantially lower.
Hawaii has the only school system within the U. Policy decisions are made by the fourteen-member state Board of Educationwhich sets policy and hires the superintendent of schools, who oversees the state Department of Education.
Public elementary, middle and high school test scores in Hawaii are below national averages on tests mandated under the No Child Left Behind Act. The Hawaii Board of Education requires all eligible students to take these tests and report all student test scores. This may have unbalanced the results that reported in August that of schools across the state, failed to reach federal minimum performance standards in mathematics and reading.

The commercial aviation airport offers intercontinental service to North America, Asia, Australia and Oceania. Hawaiian AirlinesMokulele Airlines and go! Island Air and Pacific Wings serve smaller airports.
These airlines also provide air freight services between the islands. On May 30,the airport was officially renamed as the Daniel K. Senator Daniel K. Until air passenger services began in the s, private boats were the sole means of traveling between the islands. Seaflite operated hydrofoils between the major islands in the mids. Protests and legal problems over environmental impact statements ended the service, though the company operating Superferry has expressed a wish to recommence ferry services in the future.
At one time Hawaii had a network of railroads on each of the larger islands that transported farm commodities and passengers. The standard gauge in the U. Traffic on this line was busy enough for signals to be used to facilitate movement of trains and to require wigwag signals at some railroad crossings for the protection of motorists.
The main line was officially abandoned inalthough part of it was bought by the U. Navy and operated until Kamehameha III chose the largest city, Honolulu, as his capital because of its natural harbor-the present-day Honolulu Harbor. Hawaii has the fewest local governments among U. All local governments are generally administered at the county level. The only incorporated area in the state is Honolulu Countya consolidated city-county that governs the entire island of Oahu.
The mayors are all elected in nonpartisan elections. Kalawao County has no elected government, and as mentioned above there are no local school districts and instead all local public education is administered at the state level by the Hawaii Department of Education.
The remaining local governments are special districts. The state government of Hawaii is modeled after the federal government with adaptations originating from the kingdom era of Hawaiian history.

Hirono is the first female Asian American senator and the first Buddhist senator. Hawaii incurred the biggest seniority shift between the th and th Congresses. The state went from a delegation consisting of senators who were first and twenty-first in seniority [f] to their respective replacements, relative newcomers Schatz and Hirono. In Hawaii's statehood tenure, only Minnesota has supported Republican candidates fewer times in presidential elections. Hawaii has not elected a Republican to represent the state in the U.

Forensic services for all agencies in the state are provided by the Honolulu Police Department. While Hawaii is internationally recognized as a state of the United States while also being broadly accepted as such in mainstream understanding, the legality of this status has been questioned in U. District Court, the U. Political organizations seeking some form of sovereignty for Hawaii have been active since the late 19th century.
Generally, their focus is on self-determination and self-governanceeither for Hawaii as an independent nation in many proposals, for "Hawaiian nationals" descended from subjects of the Hawaiian Kingdom or declaring themselves as such by choiceor for people of whole or part native Hawaiian ancestry in an indigenous " nation to nation " relationship akin to tribal sovereignty with US federal recognition of Native Hawaiians.
The pro-federal recognition Akaka Bill drew substantial opposition among Hawaiian residents in the s. The Hawaiian sovereignty movement views the overthrow of the Kingdom of Hawaii in as illegal, and views the subsequent annexation of Hawaii by the United States as illegal; the movement seeks some form of greater autonomy for Hawaii, such as free association or independence from the United States.
