HAS THE ILLEGAL US OCCUPATION OF HAWAI`I WORKED?
A&B ALLOWED TO STEAL MAUI FARMS WATER 






















MauiTimes.com

Hawai`i Governor David Ige announced that he would sign House Bill 2501 
“with reservations,” which means Alexander & Baldwin (A&B) can continue its century-old practice of diverting East Maui water.... 

This is despite A&B’s announcement earlier this year that they would close the Hawaiian Commercial & Sugar plantation on Maui.

Reaction to the announcement from environmentalists was swift and brutal. 

“Governor Ige failed to achieve the right balance in this situation,” said Marti Townsend, Director for the Sierra Club of Hawai`i, in a June 27 news release. 

“His decision unnecessarily favors profit-driven water diversions above the best interests of the public. 

Our laws are written to ensure that our water is held in trust for everyone’s benefit. The Ige Administration should follow those laws, not change them to benefit those that divert public water for private gain, while harming the people and our environment.”

In her news release, Townsend also noted that a court ruled in January that the state Department of Land and Natural Resources “had improperly ‘held over’ A&B’s permits for nearly 3 decades in violation of state law....”

HAS THE ILLEGAL US OCCUPATION OF HAWAI`I WORKED?
FOREIGN CORP PROFITS $200 MILLION IN 3 YEARS
Bloomberg.com 

Blackstone Group LP agreed to sell the leasehold on the Hyatt Regency Waikiki Beach Resort and Spa to Mirae Asset Global Investments Co. for $780 million, garnering a profit of more than $200 million in three years, according to a person with knowledge of the pending transaction.

The 1,230-room property on the Hawaiian island of O`ahu is the latest in a series of overseas real estate purchases by closely held Mirae. Last year, the South Korean company bought the Fairmont Orchid hotel on the big island of Hawai`i and the Fairmont San Francisco, according to research firm Real Capital Analytics Inc.

Mirae didn’t immediately respond to e-mails sent before regular business hours. Paula Chirhart, a Blackstone spokeswoman, declined to comment.

Blackstone is capitalizing on strong demand for lodging and little new supply in O`ahu, the second-priciest lodging market in the US, after San Francisco. O`ahu room rates averaged $217 a night in January through April, compared with $229 for the San Francisco-San Mateo market, according to lodging-data provider STR.

The Hyatt Regency Waikiki Beach would be the biggest single-property hotel transaction ever in Hawai`i, according to Real Capital. The resort has been running at about 90 percent occupancy this year, with average room rates topping $250 a night, said the person with knowledge of the deal, who asked not to be identified because the sale is private....

HAS THE ILLEGAL US OCCUPATION OF HAWAI`I WORKED?

Yesterday [6/13/2016] Debbie Lindsey, interim Poʻokula (and former hope poʻokula) at Kamehameha Schools (KS), sent a letter to the leadership, faculty, and staff of KS Kapālama addressing what she calls a “disrespectful” “incident” at the 2016 KS Kapālama commencement ceremony. The incident she is referring to was a choice made by five strong and proud Kanaka Maoli students who refused to stand during the opening song, The Star Spangled Banner.

Lindsey, says this choice “created a noticeable disturbance to the commencement exercises” that was “disrespectful to our school and our country.” Ultimately Lindsey claims that the ceremony was “blemished by the poor choice of a few.” Throughout her letter, Lindsey cites important values that KSK is responsible for instilling in their students including: pride, humility, honor and respect. Lindsey was further appalled that this act of resistance took place on Memorial weekend, when all occupied people are supposed to be extra patriotic Americans.

With enough time, I could shred her letter into too many pieces to count. Rather, I would like to share this letter with you all to remind us of how much work we have left to be done. Unfortunately, some of our greatest obstacles come from within institutions that are meant to protect and serve our Kanaka Maoli community. The audacity of this woman to attempt to force her Americanism on our students and our faculty is sickening. Her erroneous use of pronouns meant to assert the idea that Hawaiʻi is apart of America is best rebutted by our kumu Haunani-Kay Trask (KS 1967) who famously said, “We are not Americans, we are not Americans, we will die as Hawaiian, we will NEVER be Americans.” Trask’s words were true and timely in 1993, and they continue to be true and important to this day. Pauahi was not an American, our haumāna are not Americans, and choosing to sit during the national anthem of our occupiers is a sign of great respect and reverence to our true country.

I am concerned that our school is currently led by someone with so little consciousness and vision as to not understand the great need for a group of students to “create a noticeable disturbance” in order to inspire change. At the same time, I am not surprised, as this is the same institution that fires employees for “nation building.” I hope our community stands behind these students as they potentially put their academic standing on the line in order to show us how wrong it is that we have not updated our commencement protocol to exclude the American National anthem. In addition, I hope Lindsey and her supporters are properly reprimanded for attempted to force students to participate in any activity they find demeaning or against their personal beliefs.

Finally, I would like to applaud these five haumāna. I am immensely proud of you, and proud to be a Kamehameha graduate precisely because of students like you. Continue to stand (and sit) strong in your convictions, all the rest of your days. Continue to follow in the footsteps of our kupuna, like Aunty Nona Beamer, who stood up to the hypocrisy of Kamehameha when she was expelled for dancing hula and practicing our culture. Remember always that you are a part of a brilliant genealogy of resistance, true decedents of the original poʻe ʻai pōhaku. Never let anyone, no matter what role they play or badge they wear, try to convince you that you should ever stand for something you do not believe in. And maybe, because of you five students, someday we will have a Kamehameha commencement that doesn’t open with such an offensive and appalling demonstration of American patriotism. Contrary to this woman’s arrogant assertions, you all have made a beautiful statement that demonstrates respect, honor and pride and I am privileged to be a part of the same lāhui as you. You are not a blemish, but a shining light that remind us all that our work must and will continue until the very last aloha ʻāina.

Me ke aloha nui,

Jamaica Heolimeleikalani Osorio
2008 KS Kāpalama Graduate

PS: if anyone who knows the students who participated in this act of resistance, please forward them my letter so that, at the very least, they know their demonstration was not in vain, and that I and many others sit with them.

& please share to show KS that we do not support Debbie Lindsey's letter.

YESTERDAYʻS RED RIBBONS CEREMONY AT THE SMITHSONIAN IN WASHINGTON, DC























Friday, June 17, 2016

9TH CIRCUIT COURT HEARS NA`I AUPUNI LAWSUIT IN HONOLULU

Grassroot Institute Warns Closer To Native Hawaiian Tribe Than Ever Before

The challenge to the state's Native Hawaiian race-based election scheme moved forward today as the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit held a hearing in Honolulu to consider the case of Akina v. Hawaii.

The lawsuit, which was brought by four Native Hawaiians and two non-Hawaiian locals through the assistance of Judicial Watch, raises Constitutional issues regarding the use of race to qualify voters for elections and plebiscites related to the creation and approval of a Native Hawaiian tribal government. In addition, the Native Hawaiian plaintiffs have raised free speech questions related to the Roll's requirement that voters affirm the "unrelinquished sovereignty of the Native Hawaiian people."

"What many people do not realize is that we are closer today to the creation of a state-sponsored Native Hawaiian government than we were on the day that we instituted this suit," stated Keli'i Akina, Ph.D., President of the Grassroot Institute of Hawaii and a plaintiff in the lawsuit. "That is why this issue is very much alive despite the dissolution of Na'i Aupuni. Neither the state nor the Office of Hawaiian Affairs--which are also defendants in this case--have indicated any desire to abandon the nation-building process. Only a permanent injunction preventing a race-based election would put a true end to the matter."

Dr. Akina continued: "The majority of Native Hawaiians, along with general population of the state, do not support the use of public resources to form a race-based separatist nation. Our lawsuit is critical for preserving the Aloha Spirit in Hawaii."

"Finally, the Constitution and case law are clear in rejecting the race-based election and voter roll that are at the heart of the state's nation-building process. For this reason, we are confident that we will ultimately prevail," Dr. Akina concluded.

`AHA ALOHA `AINA DOES WHAT OHA REFUSED TO DO

Dear Secretary of State John Kerry,

On May 5, 2014, the CEO of the Office of Hawaiian Affairs sent a letter to Secretary of State, John Kerry inquiring about the legality of the United States' presence in Hawai`i.

To our knowledge that letter has never been adequately addressed.

On June 12, 2016 we will be holding an `Aha (official gathering) in Washington, DC pertaining to our governance, convened by `Aha Aloha `Aina. We hope to take the time to meet with you and your staff. We are available to meet from June 13-17, 2016, preferably on June 17, the commemoration of the day our Queen Lili`uokalani delivered her letter of protest to the illegal overthrow of our government and the subsequent attempts to annex Hawaii.

We appreciate your time and attention to this matter.

Sincerely,

Dr Kalamaoka`aina Niheu

BACKGROUND

This visit is a part of `Aha Aloha `Aina, a coalition of more than 40 Kanaka Maoli organizations, businesses, and Hawaiian leaders in our community dedicated to holding public meetings to determine the path forward for the healthy governance for our people utilizing our traditional framework called the Kino Kalaimoku. Like as seen with Hokule`a in her ongoing voyage, we hope to share the wisdom of our ancestors for the betterment of all mankind.

`Aha Aloha `Aina is a 100% community supported grassroots organization that utilizes zero tax payer funds. Due to the support of the community, we have been able to hold 21 free and open to the public `Aha (gatherings) throughout the islands. and several on the continental United States, among our Hawaiian diaspora community. Over the last 7 months approximately 2200 participants have been documented with 5 more planned in the next two months, one of which will be in Washington DC.

For more information we invite you to explore our website AhaAlohaAina.com
