This site is a tool intended to assist in the path towards unity for kanaka maoli and hawaiian people. I welcome participation, and will respond in kind.
Please read my post Call for Delegates to Preserve Hawaiian Unity for more information.
I am not part of any Native Hawaiian political organization, nor any US or State of Hawaii group. My career for the past 20 years had been as a Internet/Web Software Developer in NYC (resident of Brooklyn, NY). I am a descendant (great-great-grandchild) of William Goodness (naturalized to Kingdom of Hawaii 1890) and Kaulia Kahawai, Chung Alo and Julia Kapela. My Grandfather was Ned Goodness and my father is Manu Goodness, who built Alu Like on Maui County in the 1970’s. Plus, much more ohana of course. I was raised on Maui until i was 18, moved to the mainland, and graduated from UMass-Amherst. My father and some of my brothers attended Kamahehameha Schools. I own and maintain my 3rd generation family home in Wailuku, Maui, where I, my wife Christina, and our 2 keiki are part-time residents.
Me Ke Aloha,
– Raul Nohea Goodness
