In polite society it's actually kane (ka-neh = man, dude, whatever) and 
wahine (va-hee-neh = woman). A moke (not mo-keh... moke!) is the local 
equivalent of a schlub, an affectionate term for a normal kind of 
low-key local guy.
Then there's popolo and there's fockin' haole (foc-keen how-lee). But we 
won't get into all that.
