This Graduate Stripped Down For All The Right Reasons (PHOTO)

While Kalā Kaawa sat with his fellow graduates at the University of Hawaii’s winter commencement ceremony earlier this month, he texted his mom in the audience to tell her that he wanted to take off his robe when he received his diploma. Not knowing what was — or wasn’t — under her son’s gown, she was a little apprehensive.

“I don’t know,” she texted him back, “think about it.”

Kaawa weighed the risks, but he finally replied: “Nope. I’m just gonna do it.”

When it was his turn to take the stage, Kaawa slipped out of his cap and gown. Looking out to the thousands of graduates and their families and raising his diploma proudly, he stepped forward in his malo, a traditional Hawaiian loincloth.

The entire auditorium erupted. The 23-year-old received a standing ovation, and the audience continued to cheer as he walked down the aisle and back to his seat.

“I was so touched by the reaction of the crowd that I stood there in complete awe for a while … soaking in the feeling of accomplishment and pride for my culture,” he told The Huffington Post. “It felt really good to be received that way by such an enormous crowd.”

Kaawa — a Native Hawaiian who was receiving two bachelor’s degrees from the School of Hawaiian Studies — was wearing the malo as part of an oli (Hawaiian chant) that opened the graduation ceremony. But he was nervous that wearing it on stage would bar him from receiving his diploma or that he’d be mocked for the scant cloth.

In traditional Hawaiian culture, nudity isn’t necessarily sexual, and the malo was the basic garment for Hawaiian men — both royalty and commoners.

Kaawa said he wanted to use the garment to remind people “not to be ashamed of your culture, whether you are Hawaiian, Maori, Samoan, Tongan, etc.” and to “know your roots, represent and perpetuate! Not just for yourself, but for your family, your ancestors and the future generations of your culture.”

Someone wants their perfect weapon back, only she’s not coming quietly. Alexa Wells wants her life back. She’s just not sure what that life was. The memories inside her head-a stripper’s-aren’t hers, and before she humiliates herself onstage one more time, she sets out to collect the scattered pieces of her mind. The trail leads to Boston, charges of identity theft and murder, and the real bombshell: a forgotten werewolf lover who insists she’s a werewolf hybrid. Matt York doesn’t care that she looks at him like he’s been smoking crack between court cases. Now that he has her back he’s not about to let her go it alone, even if she can easily kick ass and take names all by herself. Amnesia only scratches the surface of her problems, and like it or not, she’s stuck with him. She’s also stuck with Robert Gamboldt, a venture capitalist who’s not above murdering his way to the top. He’s not about to lose his prize possession without playing dirty. It’s a simple enough offer. Be his personal assassin, or go to jail. With options like that, it’s enough to make a hybrid go full-blood.
