What you may not know about the star of the new movie The Tooth Fairy is that he is truly a world class act. He grew up living in several countries and his ethnic background is also diverse.
His Cultural Background and Places that Have Been His Home:
Dwayne Johnson, the son of Ata Johnson (née Maivia) and professional wrestler “Soulman” Rocky Johnson, was born in Hayward, California. His maternal grandfather, “High Chief” Peter Maivia, was also a professional wrestler. His maternal grandmother, Lia Maivia, ran Polynesian Pacific Pro Wrestling from 1982 until 1988 following her husband’s death, becoming one of wrestling’s few female professional promoters. His father is of Black Nova Scotian (Canadian) origin and his mother is of Samoan heritage. For a brief period, Johnson lived in Auckland, New Zealand, with his mother’s family. During this time his mother Ata ensured Johnson was exposed to one of the urban Polynesian cultural strongholds of the Southern Hemisphere. Johnson attended Richmond Road Primary School before returning to the United States with his parents.
He spent 10th grade at President William McKinley High School in Honolulu, Hawaii. As he entered 11th grade, Johnson’s father’s job required his relocation to Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, in the state’s Lehigh Valley region. He began playing football at Bethlehem’s Freedom High School in the highly competitive Lehigh Valley Conference. In addition to playing football at Freedom High School, he also was a member of the high school’s track and field and wrestling teams.-(Wikepedia)
