    I'm not Poly, but I know quite the amount of poly's at my school and my neighborhood. But anywho, I'm sure you've probably heard of TreySmoov from youtube or some sort. Their music is da bombbbbb.

    Im not a nesian but all my friends are, infact my whole school which contains 1200 people and survey shows roughly 84% are of Samoan and tongan, possibly other 16% are maori ^^

    anyway, a lot of my friends are form Apia and they have last names like Iopu, Tifa, Oeti, Ah-lam, Vaalele etc... none of them can play the ukulele but play the guitar very well... and not just only chords

    Though I was born here, my father was from Fagatogo, and my mother is from Holland . . . so I love fish and chocolate

    BTW I believe my grandmother was from Leone.

    Sadly, I'm at a loss for much of my own family history, as my parents divorced when I was very young. I'm fearful that if I don't go roadtrip soon to interview my remaining relatives from my father's side, the info will be lost. I've still got a few aunties left who are glad to help, but this will take some time.

    I'm glad you started this thread -- maybe we'll find more lost cousins, yeah?

    A Samoan guy who works in the same building as me saw me carrying my ukulele case and I could tell he was staring on the elevator. He finally pointed said "Ukulele?" and kind of smiled, and I started talking to him.
    I opened the case and handed him the uke, and he played BEAUTIFULLY!
    Of course, he completely dwarfed the thing.
    He went from this fierce-looking huge guy with a bucket full of tools to having the most contented smile I have seen on anybody for a long time.
    He said, "I'm gonna have to get myself a ukulele some day."
    I don't know what his story is, but I am getting a new one soon and I fully plan to Deach him this one. ...Hopefully I'll get to hear more!
