I know of one Mama who has had a homebirth on Kauai, I think there must be at least one practicing midwife there....I'll link her here and see if she'd like to chime in.
AmberSkyeFire is from the Hilo side and had a UC but had nice midwives there.
I will warn you that public schooling in Hawaii is having a horrid time, cut down to 4 days a week by the govt. to save $, and not well funded before that. Homeschooling however is not legally difficult to do here.
The thing about moving is right away, your not going to be a local. Have you looked into Hawaiian history, the Sovergnty movement, etc.? Understanding Hawaiian history from a non ethnocentric perspective can make a huge difference in how you are accepted and how you understand it here.
Who owns the crown lands of Hawaii? is a great book to start with...
