I am of hawaiian decent and I feel as if I have abandoned my own culture. I use to study hula and hawaiian stuff but I gave it up because of my hatred for doing so much and getting nowhere. I was always counted on to do the most work for the group and yet I was never rewarded with a title or position. Everyone wants to be recognized. Insted my labels were, "Randy's wife" or "Rolanda's niece". I never had my own identitiy. I feel as if I am an enemy to my own culture. I do not go to hawaiian functions or festivals anymore. I still eat hawaiian food though.

i can understand that kind of feeling. i'm a chinese but unfortunately, i don't really know much of my culture and i feel sad because i don't want to see my culture to go extinct. » renaye
