Though a practicing Hindu since childhood and a strict vegetarian, Gabbard is not of Indian origin. Her father Mike Gabbard, a Catholic Christian, current Hawaii State senator, is from American Samoa. Her mother Carol Porter Gabbard, a white American from Michigan State, is a practicing Hindu. Her parents raised all five of their children with an important value of "karma yoga" and always wanting to be of service through everything that they do. Her parents have been leading their lives by example.
