[[Isabella Abbott]] is known as the first Native Hawaiian woman to earn a science degree in the 1940s. So who was the first Native Hawaiian male to earn a science degree or to work professionally as a scientist/researcher?

*I tried and failed to answer your question, but I did come across the interesting fact that [https://manoa.hawaii.edu/library/research/collections/archives/university-archives/faculty-and-students/graduating-class-photographs-1912-1934/ U Hawaii appears to have given a Master's degree in science to a Black woman before it ever awarded any degree to someone with a recognizably Native name]. That woman, [[Alice Ball]], was incredibly brilliant -- at a time when most colleges refused to admit any Blacks *or* women, she had multiple schools competing for her. But considering how thorough anti-Native discrimination was in that era, it's quite possible you'll have to wait until the 1920s or maybe later to finally find a Native Hawaiian get a science degree from an accredited institution. --[[User:Mareino|M]][[User_talk:Mareino|<font color="orange">@</font>]][[User:Mareino|r]][[Special:Contributions/Mareino|<font color="orange">ē</font>]][[User:Mareino|ino]] 16:57, 3 September 2020 (UTC)
