Dear Janice Lokelani Keihanaikukauakahihuliheekahaunaele: Your name is way too long for your ID
A Hawaiian woman has accused officials of ignoring the state’s heritage by asking her to shorten her name on official documents.
Janice Lokelani Keihanaikukauakahihuliheekahaunaele was issued with a driver’s licence that missed the final letter of her last name and did not include her first and middle names at all.
She told the Honolulu television station KHON2 that truncating her name was “disrespectful to the Hawaiian people, adding: “The county has never accommodated my name on my driver’s licence.” (Photo: © Janice ‘Lokelani’)
