kip fulbeck: part asian, 100% hapa

kip fulbeck: part asian, 100% hapa is an exhibition of portraits by Kip Fulbeck that was organized by the National Museum in 2006. Originally a derogatory label derived from the Hawaiian word for half, the word Hapa has been embraced as a term of pride by many whose mixed-race heritage includes Asian or Pacific Rim ancestry. The exhibition continues to travel to other sites across the United States.
