Many people know that Hawaii is a place of hot, sunny and tropical weather, and this is Jason Momoa’s birthplace. His exotic looks are made up of his Hawaiian father, and his mother who has Native American, Irish, and German roots. When Jason was only a few years old, he and his mother moved to Norwalk, Iowa, where she raised him as a single parent.
A few years later, he went back to Hawaii to reconnect with his father and get back to his Hawaiian roots. While he was in Hawaii, he was noticed by some Hollywood execs for his stature and good looks. His life was about to change forever.
