P.s. Many Local Polys were used recently on Off the Map to play South Americans...

When it comes to Playing the role of a polynesian person, Hollywood doesn't really always go for accuracy ... Take for instance... The Princess Ka'iulani movie.. the actress was not even from Hawai'i... she was from south america...  When Hollywood made a movie about Greg Louganis who is Samoan/European, Mario Lopez who is Latino played that role... 

I'd say at least be happy that if Dwayne Johnson were to land the role  of a Hawaiian king, at least he's a Polynesian and not another Latino... Not hat there's anything wrong with them.. I'm just sayin. Otherwise, write your own movie.. cast your own actors..  Have a great sunday

NEED AFRICAN AMERICAN OR ASIAN MALE TWINS age 23-39 for a Nicki Minaj music video. Identical would be great, but if not identical OK too, since you will be wearing identical pink suits and hats. As long as you are twins. Shoot is Tuesday 3-13 and or Wednesday 3-14. This is a NON UNION shoot.email photo, stats and phone number ASAP. Please indicate if you have an agent and who it is, so I can let them know if you may be right for this. PLEASE do NOT submit if you don't fit these specs. All other parts have been cast.

Thank you

Anna

Kimo stated,
"the physical appearance of the actor playing the role should take precedence over the race of the individual."

I concur wholeheartedly.

Comment by Kimo Stowell on March 7, 2012 at 9:44am

Aloha Mai Kakou,

Intriguing conversation concerning the casting of Kamehameha. I think Mr. Johnson would make a compelling Kamehameha and would draw a lot of international interest to the film but historically speaking, aside from his physical strength, Mr. Johnson lacks the intensity of facial features and the towering and imposing stature of the late great Mo'i nui. 

Additionally, I might add, greater polynesia has been a melting pot of pacific rim cultures for millennia. Hawaiian oral tradition describe many different races visiting and or settling in the Hawaiian archipelago; originating from as far away as Europe, Japan, Malaysia, Micro and Melanesia, Pacific Northwest, and South America there is much debate concerning the origins of Pa'ao and Pili. Many contemporary scholars believe they arrived here from the Society Islands or Tahiti, regardless it is my humble opinion that the physical appearance of the actor playing the role should take precedence over the race of the individual. It would be wonderful if the Actor was of Hawaiian or Polynesian descent but it should not be a prerequisite or deciding factor in casting the part.

If not Kamehameha, Mr. Johnson would make an excellent rival as Keoua(the younger) or loyal subordinate as Ke'eamoku

-peace

In 1891, Princess Ka'iulani was named by her aunt, Queen Lili'uokalani, as Heiress Apparent to the Kingdom of Hawai'i.

She was the last named heir to the Hawaiian monarchy and was half-white and half-Hawaiian. Her father Archibald Cleghorn was Scottish and her mother Princess Likelike was Hawaiian.

The purpose of my post is to show that Hawai'i has always been about a mixture of races even at the highest level.

And besides, Pa'ao and Pili came at a time about 30 generations before Kamehameha. A time where I have previously argued that Polynesians were all one people anyway.  Therefore, I have no problem with the Rock playing Kamehameha. In fact, I endorse it.  Whatever brings truth to light about our people and history I am all for.  Truth.

Are you referring to the genealogy layout in the book entitled, "Myths and Legends of Hawaii" Which until recently was followed with, "The Fables and Folk-Lore of a Strange People."  Yeah I am sure Kalakaua would write a book and call his own "strange people."  There were many contributing authors in this volume, many of them white men.  And let's not forget, the book is titled, "Myths and Legends" and not, "Facts."  Every Hawaiian historian of that time period has Pa'ao coming from Samoa and establishing a priestly line.  He brought with him human sacrifice and the high chief Pili, who hailed from Tahiti.  Do not believe everything you read online.  Do the research yourself.  There are many books I can give you that say it directly.  Like I said before, email me personally and I can send you directly to the authorities on this subject.  Let's not waste any more posts on subjects you do not know about people...Excuse me for being blunt, but let's leave Hawaiian genealogy to the Hawaiians.  We don't go around telling people who their ancestors were and we appreciate the same respect.  Malama pono.
