Short for 'braddah.' Origin: Hawaiian pigeon english, 1960's and later. Meaning: My brother/ close associate/ cousin/ or Kama'aina (person FROM HAWAII). NOT used with outsiders unless they are close friends or have SOLID knowledge of Hawai'i and its culture (except jokingly, offensively). Inappropriate use by outsiders may result in 'false crack' or scorn. Best avoided by mainland haoles during break-in phase (your first 25 yrs in Hawaii).

Used by people in Hawaii. It is the shortened form of "braddah" which is the local slang for brother/bro. Used to address a male, like how some people use "Dude."
The plural of "Brah" is "Braddahs," NOT "Brahs," because that's the thing wahines wear.
