    Yes. The definition of native is n : a person who was born in a particular place, Sorry Tutu, it's just with Kimo gone for so long I'm experiencing withdrawals...

    For me it all began on O'ahu, followed by New Jersey, followed by California, then New Jersey, and now I'm back in California.

    I really think the word native should also be taken on a case by case basis.

    While I was born in North Carolina, do I consider myself native from there? Absolutely not. I love the Outer Banks, but that's about it. I don't "claim" it.

    Though I moved to Hawai`i at age 3, lived in 3098472984120391023 different places in between, and then moved back...do I consider myself native? Absolutely.

    That's pretty funny Lei...

    Because I lived closed to the Lummi Indian Reservation in Washington and I lived in a city predominantly white...( I'm half black half white...)
    I was often asked if I was an Indian... I would reply.... No but I am a Native! Just to confuse them

    Funny the land rovers we sent there never picked up any tagging. Too bad because if it did I would be absolutely delighted at that discovery.

    Kimo's Braddah...if you're still lurking around, just a little bit of history here on HT. We all get flamed by each other at some point here, but we eventually become good friends. I hope one day we can all look back at this and swap flame stories about each other. Take care and we'll be watching out for your tags. I can say to my boys, "I know dat buggah"

    Well, I guess I would have to say California. Cause I've lived on Treasure Island, Vallejo, Suisun, and Fairfield!

    My Christy was born in Vallejo General Hospital!

    Indeed. And again, I'd appreciate it if he be given no more satisfaction in the way of ongoing attention.

    I concur . But in all seriousness I don't think a person can just claim to be native any more than they can claim to be a certain race (that they aren't).

    Wow! We catered many parties in Benicia! We owned "Crispy Lechon" on Springs Road in Vallejo. We specialized in Filipino Style Whole Roast Pigs and Chickens. Also, Local Style Plate Lunches. Our customers would come as far as Sacramento and Montery. The lines were long. Business was good. Alas, MAMA became ill and we came home. She is moa important.

    Born in Honolulu, raised in and still call Kailua my home, so I've lived in Hawaii all my life.

    Spent 9 months out of the year in Portland for school during the early 90s, and still make periodic visits there (just like the salmon, gotta keep coming back...)

    That's debateable depending on how you define race. Same species yes, same race perhaps. Once again how you define race, scientifically speaking. And BTW neanderthals are thought by some to be a subspeicies of Homo sapien just like modern human Homo sapian sapians. Next time I'll just say ethnicity though.
