• Kamehameha Schools
I attended Kamehameha Schools back in the 1930s when the student body consisted of only 210 boys and about 150 girls total.
In those early days, the school was broke — land-rich, but with financial difficulties due to poor management of those lands.
Many of the students, like myself, were of the less-than-half bloods. I would safely say the student body makeup of blood quantum was about 50 percent Hawaiian and 50 percent of other ethnicities.
Shockingly, there were only three boys of the pureblood.
Presently, I have two grandchildren attending, and they are of the less than half-bloods, as I am. Today, I would say the Hawaiian blood quantum of my time period has been diluted into a greater loss, as observed.
Those people who contest the school’s policy are out of their minds. So, tell me, you people who criticize our Kamehameha Schools admission policy — where is the discrimination when the native blood quantum is of the minority?
