The origin of the word “haole”

Off 4

According to historians, the origin of the word “haole” precedes the arrival of Captain James Cook in the Hawaiian archipelago, in 1778.

Although today it is considered mainly a pejorative word, it has not always been like that.

In the past, it had simple descriptive meanings and was even used to identify the children of the European immigrants who arrived in Hawaii in the early 1820s.
