My husband is very proud of his Hawaiian heritage.  My younger daughter has spent a lot of time researching the family ('ohana) history.  It's a great excuse to visit the islands whenever possible.
William, Emile, the baby Julius (my husband's grandfather), Emily and Anna Na'alii'ilihune.  Emile was born in Belgium and settled in Hawaii.  He married Anna, a full blooded Hawaiian.

This is Anna's 'ohana.  The baby is my husband's grandfather.

In this collage, I used maps of Hawaii, copies of a grave stone rubbing and a photo.  I added memories of our island visits and used colored pencil to draw a wahine.  Aloha!
