Hawaiian Etiquette
By Joyce Furstenau

1     Each region in the United States has certain customs and practices that may not be familiar to us. Hawaii is somewhat different in that many of Hawaii's citizens are of Polynesian or Asian descent. As a result, certain customs and etiquette may be practiced there that are unique to its long time residents and the Hawaiian culture.
2     Should you visit America's fiftieth state, there are some things you should know that may help make you a polite guest in this beautiful state. Naturally, proper usage of the words "aloha" and "mahalo" head the list. The word aloha has several meanings. As a visitor, you will most likely use it for saying hello and goodbye. Mahalo means thank you.
3     When you arrive in Hawaii, you may be given a lei. A lei is Hawaiian necklace often made of shells or fresh or artificial flowers. If you are presented with a lei, accept it and wear it with gratitude. Never take it off in front of the person who gave it to you. That would be considered an insult.
