KE AUPUNI UPDATE - MARCH 2021 

Keeping in touch and updated on activities regarding the restoration of Ke Aupuni o Hawai`i, the Hawaiian Kingdom. Ua Mau Ke Ea O Ka `Aina I Ka Pono.




 

 

 

 

Say NO To Fed Rec

In 1993, President William Clinton, on behalf of the United States, issued a formal apology to Native Hawaiians for the wrongful taking of the Hawaiian Islands by the U.S. The apology called for “reconciliation” but did not specify what that meant.

Hawaiians took “reconciliation” to mean their country would finally be restored as an independent nation and set their sights for that eventual outcome.

The United States, apparently not willing to take “reconciliation” that far, began to push for something called “Federal Recognition.”

For the past 20-plus years, the United States has been pushing this reconciliation solution… to grant “Federal Recognition” to a yet-to-be-formed, Native Hawaiian tribal nation.

Under this deal the U.S. and its “State of Hawaii” would remain in full control, but instead of having nothing (like now), the Native Hawaiians would be recognized as a tribal nation having a glorified “government-to-government” relationship with the U.S. and, like other recognized Native American Tribes, have access to certain Federal programs and benefits.

Native Hawaiians and other Hawaiians, who consider themselves to be Hawaiian nationals, not U.S. citizens, reject Federal Recognition as preposterous; a form of captivity with perks.

Federal Recognition is based on the asumption that, since the Hawaiian Islands is part of the United States, then Native Hawaiians must be indigenous to the United States.

Aha! There’s the crux of the dispute: whether or not the Hawaiian Islands is part of the United States.

Any honest study of the historical record and international law shows Hawaii is a sovereign, independent nation being illegally usurped and occupied by the United States. Yet, even though the U.S. has apologized for its unlawful taking of the Hawaiian Islands, it expects Hawaiians (and everyone else) to overlook that “minor” detail and accept the status quo — the U.S. occupation — as legitimate and immutable.

Hawaiian patriots flatly reject the U.S. claims to Hawaii and unequivocally assert that their home, the Hawaiian Islands, is still a sovereign, independent country.

Since the lands and the people of the Hawaiian Islands are by law, under the domain of the Hawaiian Kingdom, not the United States, Hawaiians are not citizens of the United States; and thus, Native Hawaiians are indigenous to the Hawaiian Islands, not the United States.

Federal Recognition for Hawaiians would not just be inappropriate, it would be criminal and would further exacerbate the injuries caused by the United States’ ongoing violations of civil, political and human rights of the Hawaiian people, amounting to international criminal acts and war crimes.

This is why Hawaiians say “NO” to U.S. Federal Recognition. 

 

It’s time to hele mua...

This is the opportune time to move forward to initiate The Huli... to flip the tables and restore our Kingdom of the Hawaiian Islands. If we can muster the political will, we can do this! International mechanisms (like de-occupation) are available to help us restore our nation to reflect values and priorities rooted in aloha ʻāina, mālama pono, kapu aloha...
------ 

The more we stand as a nation and assert the Hawaiian Kingdom is alive and kicking, the more obvious the U.S. false claim becomes and the sooner we will be a Free Hawaii.

NEW DOCUMENTARY CENTERS PROTEST, POETRY & THE FIGHT FOR NATIVE HAWAIIAN SOVEREIGNTY


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Vogue - February19, 2021 

This Is the Way We Rise begins under the cover of darkness with eight Native Hawaiian activists huddled together against the bitter Mauna Kea cold, against the state enforcement agents barreling towards them. The activists were protesting the proposed construction of the Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT) atop Mauna Kea, a dormant volcano on the island of Hawai‘i valued for decades by the astronomical community for its unhampered view of the universe. If built, the TMT would be the largest visible-light telescope on the mountain, dwarfing the 13 other telescopes already occupying Mauna Kea’s slopes.

For Hawaiians, Mauna Kea is more than just a mountain. It is a sacred site, the piko or center of where Wākea (the sky father) and Papa (earth mother) meet, a solemn place not only in Hawaiian cosmology but in the stories of cultures all across Polynesia. The eight activists—or kia‘i (protectors), as they are often called—were there to make a statement. As long as they remained standing, the TMT would not be built.

Among the kia‘i that day was Jamaica Heolimeleikalani Osorio, the poet and activist at the film’s center. A decade earlier, at just 18 years old, Osorio was heralded as a voice for the next generation of Native Hawaiians. Her poems, delivered in her now characteristic cadence of vulnerability and strength, vividly captured the experience of being queer and kanaka maoli, or Native Hawaiian, in a political climate that was often hostile to both parts of her identity.

The veracity of her poetry won her accolades and applause. It captured the attention of prominent audiences, including President Barack Obama and an enraptured first family during the White House’s inaugural Poetry Jam. But by the start of the film, poetry and performing had lost their luster for Osorio, who by then had not written a poem for three years.

“Not only did it feel like a chore and even, like, a pressure to produce for other people,” Osorio recounts in the film, “but I felt like I had run out of things to say.”

In This Is the Way We Rise, which was chosen to be screened at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, Osorio’s internal conflict is set against the backdrop of the fight to protect Mauna Kea, a protest that at its height drew thousands of demonstrators to Hawai‘i’s highest peak. As we watch the growth of this movement, so too do we witness Osorio reclaim her voice.

I speak with Osorio and director Ciara Lacy, who this year became the first female Native Hawaiian to be shown at Sundance, about this cross section of creativity and activism, the longstanding effects of colonization, and how Native peoples can help save us from the current climate catastrophe....

 NO TO FED WRECK - FREE HAWAI`I


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Over the pat 20 years, the Office of Hawaiian Affairs squandered at least $30 million of beneficiaries' money trying to get "Federal Recognition" — to make Native Hawaiians into American Indian tribe. 

They failed miserably because we said NO! 

But a couple of days ago, Trustee Hulu Lindsey, chair of the Office of Hawaiian Affairs, addressed the US Senate Indian Affairs Committee (chaired by Sen. Brian Schatz) indicating that OHA is again hoping to pursue Fed Rec. 

This is disappointing! 

You'd think that after 20 years, she'd realize Hawaiians don't want Fed Rec. 

For 12 years we fought (and beat) the Akaka Bill in Congress; then we battled Kanai'iolowalu, Na'i Aupuni and the Dept. of Interior schemes to a standstill. 

Let's send a message to OHA: A'ole Fed Rec... We don't want to be, an American Indian Tribe... We want our country back...

DONʻT BE FOOLED - ITʻS ANOTHER TRICK TO BUILD THE TMT



 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Honolulu Civil Beat - February 25, 2012 

A proposed working group that would determine the future of Mauna Kea is already creating divisions among those who both support and oppose astronomy on the mountain, among Native Hawaiian groups, and among lawmakers in the Legislature. 

A joint panel of House legislators advanced resolutions Thursday morning that would form the working group. The proposals, House Resolution 33 and House Concurrent Resolution 41, now await a vote before the full 51-member House. 

But it’s not yet clear that the working group, meant to bring together stakeholders in government and Hawaiian communities, will be successful in bridging divides over development on the mountain. 

At a 90-minute hearing on the resolutions Thursday, lawmakers heard concerns over the composition of the group and what exactly it should accomplish. Despite those concerns, the House Judiciary and Hawaiian Affairs and Water and Land committees voted to move forward with the proposals while only making technical, non-substantive amendments. TMT Demonstrators gather at the ahu or altar near entrance of Mauna kea Access Road. Near Kipuka Pu’u Huluhulu, native tree sanctuary and trail. 

Only Reps. Dale Kobayashi and Gene Ward cast no votes. 

The concurrent resolution is expected to run into opposition in the Senate, where Sen. Lorraine Inouye, the chairwoman of the Water and Land Committee, has already refused to give it a hearing. 

However, the working group can still move forward as long as House Resolution 33 clears the 51-member chamber, Rep. David Tarnas said. 

Its support in the broader public might be tenuous, however. Some who testified on Thursday, and even some lawmakers, see the resolutions as another way to steamroll opposition to the Thirty Meter Telescope planned for construction on the summit. 

“HCR 41 and HR 33 would attempt to create the illusionof inclusion while ensuring the majority of the voices will always favor the foregone conclusion of the sponsors: to promote further development,” Deborah Ward, a Big Island resident, told lawmakers. 

Hawaiian Membership 

The working group would consist of 15-members, including seven Native Hawaiians. 

There would be one representative each from the Office of Haaiian Affairs, the Board of Land and Natural Resources, the University of Hawaii Board of Regents and the Mauna Kea Observatories. House Speaker Scott Saiki would choose three House members and a chairperson to round out the group. 

Healani Sonoda-Pale, a spokeswoman for the Ka Lahui Hawaii Komike Kalaiana, also feels that the resolution would help to push forward with TMT, which stalled in 2019 and is now seeking funding from the National Science Foundation.

"We don’t see this as a way to discuss management. We see this as a backdoor into finding a way to silence kiai and to build the TMT,” Sonoda-Pale told the lawmakers. Healani Sonoda-Pale testifies during a Water, Land Hawaiian Affairs hearing at the Capitol. 

However, other Hawaiian groups, even those opposed to TMT, support the idea of the working group. Those include several of the Hawaiian Civic Clubs on the Big Island. Noe 

Noe Wong-Wilson, president of the Hawaiian Civic Club of Hilo, wrote in testimony to lawmakers that the process for selecting seven Hawaiian members, about half of the group’s membership, should be open and transparent. 

The provision that Saiki would get to pick a majority of the members for the working group, including its Hawaiian members, has previously drawn criticism from activists. 

“Failure to engage the large Native Hawaiian community in this process will contribute to the ongoing distrust and dissatisfaction for the State of Hawaii’s care of our sacred mauna and cultural resource,” Wong-Wilson wrote. 

OHA also raised issues over the composition of the group. CEO Sylvia Hussey told lawmakers that lineal descendants of Hawaii island, cultural practitioners and members of the Royal Order of Kamehameha I should be considered for the working group. 

Astronomers Push Lease Extension

Some astronomy groups and Mauna Kea protesters like Wong-Wilson have actually found themselves on the same side on the working group. But while they might support the group, they have different goals. 

The protesters and kiai, or protectors, would like to see astronomy end and TMT permanently halted. The observatories, meanwhile, hope the group can provide a path forward to get a key lease extension from the state. 

Maunakea Observatories, which includes all 12 observatories operating on Mauna Kea, is among the working group’s supporters. Richard Matsuda, chief of operations for the W.M. Keck Observatory, told lawmakers that any discussion over governance should consider extension of UH’s master lease over the summit. 

All the observatories operate under that master lease, which is expected to end in 2033 unless the BLNR grants UH a lease extension. 

The observatories group indicated that the one seat on the 15-member working group that would represent astronomers is not enough.

The University of Hawaii wants lawmakers to define a clear objective for the working group. Greg Chun, UH’s director for Mauna Kea stewardship, was among those who called for greater Big Island representation on the working group. 

Some supporters of astronomy are also divided on the issue. Thayne Currie, an astrophysicist at the Subaru Telescope on Mauna Kea, said he finds flaws in how the resolutions are written. 

The resolutions target the University of Hawaii’s management of the mountain, which has been criticized by a string of auditor reports in the 1990s as well as another evaluation in December from a consultant that found UH still has trouble reaching Native Hawaiians. 

Currie thinks UH has done well in managing the mountain, and that much of the criticisms of its management should instead be levied against the state. He also doesn’t think the resolution would resolve many of the underlying issues the conflict over TMT has brought to light. 

“This will not fully fund DHHL, resolve issues over Mauna Kea Access Road, or resolve issues over Hawaiian Sovereignty,” Currie said. 

Proposal Advances Despite Objections 

Lawmakers also have differing opinions regarding the working group and how to best move forward on Mauna Kea. A majority of state lawmakers support construction of TMT on Mauna Kea, but Rep. Dale Kobayashi is not one of them. 

He sees the resolutions as just another way to push forward on astronomy development on Mauna Kea. 

“If you fool me once, shame on you, if you fool me twice, shame on me,” Kobayashi said. “This is a situation where, ‘fool me hundreds of times over hundreds of years.’” 

He continued: “This is for folks who woke up one day and decided to support astronomy over the wishes of people … this is just more of what we’ve been doing for hundreds of years.” 

Rep. Gene Ward doesn’t see the point of continuing discussion on Mauna Kea if Hawaii has already lost TMT. Mauna Kea is still the organization’s preferred site, but the observatory has also eyed a location in the Canary Islands off the coast of Africa. 

“If it’s moot, we are just talking about nothing for nothing,” Ward said. Senator Lorraine Inouye debate on carbon tax in the Senate. 

Other lawmakers, particularly those on the Big Island, hope it can help bridge some of the divides in their communities over the astronomy issue. 

Rep. Nicole Lowen, who represents parts of West Hawaii, said the membership of the group still needs work. 

“There’s not one voice of the people that’s a monolith, there’s a lot of different views on this. And there needs to be continuing work to come to some kind of consensus,” Lowen said. 

HCR 41 is expected to be dead on arrival if it moves to the Senate. 

Inouye already informed Tarnas and Saiki that she does not plan to give the resolution a hearing if it is referred to her committee. 

“We already made a commitment to support astronomy,” Inouye said in a phone interview. She added that UH and its Board of Regents have already taken steps to improving management of the mountain. 

The House still plans to forge ahead and create the working group even if the Senate does not support the proposal.

DID YOU SEE YESTERDAYʻS FREE HAWAI`I TV?

LOOK WHAT HAPPENED AT THE US SENATE     


HAWAIIANS HAVE A FRONT ROW SEAT AT THE US SENATE

Honolulu Civil Beat - February 24, 2021

WASHINGTON — Native Hawaiians now have a direct line to the U.S. Senate.

On Wednesday, Hawaii Sen. Brian Schatz held his first hearing as chairman of the Indian Affairs Committee to ask Native community leaders about what Congress can do for them.

Among the guests who were invited to testify was Office of Hawaiian Affairs Chairwoman Carmen Hulu Lindsey, who urged the committee to pass legislation to put Native Hawaiians on the same footing as their Indigenous peers throughout the country.

“The federal trust responsibility may look different from tribe to tribe and from community to community, but that responsibility is owed by the federal government to all Native Americans,” Lindsey said.

“Unfortunately for the past two decades executive orders requiring federal agencies to consult with Native Americans have left Native Hawaiians out. To address this OHA urges the passage of legislation extending consultation by the federal government to Native Hawaiians.”

She also pressed for more federal dollars for Native Hawaiian health care, education and economic development.

Native Hawaiians are not recognized by the U.S. government as their own sovereign entity, which leaves them as a whole unable to have a government-to-government relationship in the same manner as American Indian tribes.

The lack of federal recognition can also mean Native Hawaiians are not eligible for certain federal funds that can be directed to tribal entities, which occurred when Congress first passed the CARES Act to address the coronavirus pandemic.

Some are hopeful that with President Joe Biden in the White House, federal recognition will once again be back on the table, although it will be up to the Native Hawaiians themselves to organize around a path forward since one already exists in federal rules.

WHAT PART OF "A`OLE TMT" DONʻT THEY UNDERSTAND?


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Honolulu Civil Beat - February 19, 2021 

A Big Island lawmaker wants Native Hawaiians and government officials, including representatives of observatories, to come together this year to develop a new management structure for Mauna Kea. 

The proposals introduced in the Hawaii House of Representatives on Friday by Rep. David Tarnas seek to bring together groups that have been in conflict over the construction of the Thirty Meter Telescope on Mauna Kea. Tarnas’ proposals also come two weeks after House Speaker Scott Saiki called for UH to relinquish its management of the mauna. 

The working group contemplated in House Concurrent Resolution 41 and House Resolution 33 would include 15 members, including seven Native Hawaiians nominated by various organizations, groups and communities. Saiki would consider the nominations and appoint the members. 

There would be one representative each from the Office of Hawaiian Affairs, the Board of Land and Natural Resources, the UH Board of Regents and the Mauna Kea Observatories. 

Saiki would also nominate three members of the House as well as an individual to chair the group. Tarnas said the seven Hawaiian members would bring balance to the seven members representing government agencies. 

“I hope this can be a first step in reconciliation

,” Tarnas said. The group would have until Dec. 31 of this year to come out with a report including any proposals for lawmakers and the BLNR to consider. 

While Saiki called for the removal of UH from Mauna Kea management, and while a majority of lawmakers have previously stated their support for TMT, Tarnas said he has no preconceived notions of what the group’s outcome should be. 

“I really want to give the process a chance to consider all the alternatives, and I want to honor that process,” Tarnas said. 

He included UH and the observatories in the working group specifically to bring those entities and Hawaiian communities to the table. 

“They really have to have a better understanding of the perspective of the Native Hawaiian community,” Tarnas said of UH and the observatories. “I see this as an opportunity for them to learn and listen. I wanted them at the table so they can have that opportunity and not feel like they’ve been left out.”

The university has been criticized for its management of the mountain in the past and was targeted by protest groups for its role in bringing the Thirty Meter Telescope to Mauna Kea. 

Kealoha Pisciotta, a protest leader, said she was cautiously optimistic when Saiki called on UH to end its pursuit of a new master lease for the Mauna Kea summit. Now, she says she is appalled at the resolutions introduced Friday. 

One of her biggest concerns is that the resolution would allow Saiki to choose the seven Hawaiian members to serve on the working group. 

“That’s not self determination,” Pisciotta, who leads the protest group Mauna Kea Anaina Hou, said.

Pisciotta is also concerned that state officials have not addressed other longstanding issues facing Native Hawaiians over land rights and other issues. Several bills she and others have pushed to ban further development on Mauna Kea never got a hearing this session. 

She also believes that Hawaiians opposed to astronomy on Mauna Kea have tried to engage in peaceful dialogue in the past, echoing sentiments voiced by others who opposed a resolution last year that sought to create a Native Hawaiian commission. 

“We have participated in all the forums we can, and when dialogue fails, we rise up,” Pisciotta said. “This can’t be placated by hollow words, trying to manufacture the idea that somehow they will try to do the right thing....”

KE AUPUNI UPDATE - FEBRUARY 2021 

Keeping in touch and updated on activities regarding the restoration of Ke Aupuni o Hawai`i, the Hawaiian Kingdom. Ua Mau Ke Ea O Ka `Aina I Ka Pono.




 

 


 


 

  

 

 


 

 We Are a NATION! We Are Not a TRIBE!

Maka`ala! Watch out! Here it comes again! Hawaii Senator Brian Schatz is the new chair of the US Senate Committee on Indian Affairs. Sources say there will soon be yet another attempt to corral “Native Hawaiians” into an American tribal nation. It’s like: “Trust us, we know whatʻs best for you.”

Yes, itʻs hana hou “Akaka Bill” and “Fed Rec” (“fed wreck”), only sneakier and more dangerous. Bundling Native Hawaiians into a bill with real American Indian tribes that want Federal Recognition, practically guarantees passage. That means, Hawaiians would get swept along in a fed Rec group plan.
 
Fed Rec gives American Indian tribes some degree of autonomy and access to U.S. government programs. But for Hawaiians it would mean further encroachment on our lands and other rights trampled under the heel of the US Government… On top of that, it would be administered by the infamously dysfunctional Bureau of Indian Affairs!
 
Everybody in Hawaii nei should oppose Fed Rec for the scam that it is. Even better, we should grab this opportunity to expose to Congress and the world that this is another example of international criminal acts by the United States in their ongoing unlawful occupation of our country. Not only are we not American Indians, we are not even Americans! This is an opportunity to tell them the Hawaiian Islands is a sovereign, independent country, not a fake state of the United States!
 
The only legitimate action that the U.S. can take is to Free Hawaii.
 
Please note we are neutral regarding Federal Recognition for actual Native American tribes. That is their business and their choice to make. Just leave Hawaiians out of it.

It’s time to hele mua...

This is the opportune time to move forward to initiate The Huli... to flip the tables and restore our Kingdom of the Hawaiian Islands. If we can muster the political will, we can do this! International mechanisms (like de-occupation) are available to help us restore our nation to reflect values and priorities rooted in aloha ʻāina, mālama pono, kapu aloha...
