My two cents (which now buys one cent),
Hawaii and Hawaiiana was kind of the gateway drug that led me into the world of Tiki and Tiki Central (and seems a natural lead-in/extension for many of us). Having taken a family trip to Hawaii for the first time about 10 years ago is what led me to discover the real escapism mindset of this whole pop culture re-creation.

Without getting too deep and discussing all of the various 'real' and pop-culture created contributions, isn't that a huge part of the original driving force for much of this ---- that the GI's returning from Hawaii and the Pacific following WWII brought back those artifacts and memories of Hawaii and the South Pacific?

Blah, blah, blah....did I just toss a grenade into the middle of a group of proud (and smarter) purists?

That said, this site is whatever the founder(s) want it to be and I'm just happy to be here.
This from a guy who goes by the name Pupu.
Aloha and Mahalo
