      Summary:

      ha•pa (hä'pä)

      adj. 1. Slang. of mixed racial heritage with partial
      roots in Asian and/or Pacific Islander ancestry.
      n. 2. Slang. a person of such ancestry.
      [der./Hawaiian: hapa haole. (half white)]

      Is there a set "Hapa identity"?
      How has the media dealt with the Hapa identity?
      What are unique Hapa issues?
      Are they the same as Asian American issues?
      How do we build a greater, cohesive community of Hapas?

      Please join us for a discussion about the
      Hapa identity and the issues that face Hapas.

      Featuring Eric Byler (http://www.myspace.com/ericbyler),
      award-winning director of "charlotte sometimes" and "Americanese",
      and Ken Tanabe of Loving Day ( http://www.lovingday.org).
