Aloha, Tikiman!
I also am new here and wanted to say "Aloha" back to you. I look forward to seeing your site. I have looked into Polynesian culture just a little bit as my daughter has taken lessons at a Hula Halau (yep, here in the midwest... of all places). I don't have a great deal of knowledge, but what I have seen is a beautiful culture with a beautiful language. Can't wait to travel to Hawai'i myself someday (if I can ever stop going to WDW long enough to go somewhere else...)
