Jumping on the “let’s draw Moana because we’re all too excited to wait until 2018” bandwagon! I’m pretty darn excited (but also scared Disney will make a pig’s ear out of it).
Anyway, from what I have heard moana means ocean in both the Hawaiian and Maori languages and so chose those two cultures to imagine what Moana might look like. The top is Maori and the bottom two are Hawaiian (really just playing with hair and faces in that last one, tho’). Sorry these are messy and poorly colored :P. I plan to do more!
