UNITED NATIONS INFORMED OF HAWAIIAN RESISTANCE TO FEDERAL RECOGNITION 

Hawai`i Report to the UN Committe to End Racial Discrimination

"Kanaka Maoli and Allies Assert Rights Violations Persist in Paradise and Recommends Independence"

Presented by Leon Siu for the Koani Foundation
 

12 August 2014 - Palais des Nations, Geneva, Switzerland


The U.S. claims that in 1898 it annexed the Hawaiian Islands and that in 1959 the Hawaiian people voted to become a federal ‘state’ of the U.S. Both of these claims are patently false.

Under Occupation-
 The sovereign, independent state, the Hawaiian Kingdom, was never annexed by the United States and was never extinguished. The Hawaiian Islands is actually a nation in continuity. In 1959, the US deceived the United Nations into accepting Hawai`i as a federal state of the US, when in fact, Hawai`i was a nation under unlawful occupation. The perpetuation of this hoax robs Hawaiians of the means to seek redress and denies Hawaiians of our right to self-determination.

The Koani Foundation and the Hawaiian Kingdom have worked diligently to pursue independence under Article 15 focusing on decolonization and we ask the Committee to End Racial Discrimination (CERD) to consider the Alaska-Hawai`i Article 15 petition during this deliberation at the 85th Session.

The Indian Tribe Plot -
The U.S. Department of the Interior (DOI) is presently engaged in a vigorous campaign to reduce the status of the Native Hawaiian people into that of a domestic “federally recognized tribe” of the United States. Even though eighty to ninety percent of all the testimony submitted to the DOI emphatically opposed the proposal, the US continues to actively pursue this course.

No Consent -
Deprived of the right to self-determination, including free, prior and informed consent, Hawaiians are powerless to stop the many US policies and actions destructive to our resources, environment, social, political and economic structures.

As a result, the Hawaiian people suffer from many of the ills that plague other indigenous peoples such as -

• Dangerous dependency of imported Food and Energy
• Misuse of farmlands to raise genetically modified organisms (GMOs) for export to unsuspecting people around the world

• Disparate rate of homelessness, poverty, joblessness, crime, substance abuse, incarceration and disease
• Desecration of Sacred Sites for private and commercial purposes
• Militarization promoting a culture of war rather than peace. Placing Hawaiians at high risk of being attacked by enemies of the United States
• Contamination of lands, water the seas by the military and commercial interests

• Unrestrained Migration overwhelming finite island resources such as fresh water, housing, food supply, environment, etc.

CONCLUSION -
These abuses are occurring in large part because of the United Nations’ collusion in the United States’ unlawful occupation of the Hawaiian Islands.

RECOMMENDATION -
Our recommendation is that the CERD act to transmit the Alaska-Hawai`i Article 15 petition to the proper UN body to review and provide Hawaiians a way to exercise self-determination to peacefully resolve this dire situation.

HAWAI`I THE FAKE STATE - A CELEBRATION OF THEFT



The history books say Hawaiians and everyone else living in Hawai`i at the time voted overwhelmingly to become the fiftieth US state on August 21, 1959, fifty-five years ago today.

Yet nothing is further from the truth.


Actually only thirty-six percent of all eligible voters voted in the 1959 statehood vote. And yes, ninety-four percent of that thirty-six percent did vote for statehood.

But who were those voters? They were overwhelmingly Americans who had settled in Hawai`i to live, along with the US military and their family members.

The truth is, sixty-four percent of all eligible voters never voted at all.


And the vast majority of Hawaiians boycotted the vote entirely.

So a small minority voted for statehood, and those voters overwhelmingly were foreign settlers and the US military. 


So the anniversary of US Hawai`i Statehood is actually a celebration of theft and stolen property.

DOES THE US HAVE SOVEREIGNTY OVER HAWAI`I?

An Open Letter To US Secretary Of State John Kerry

August 11, 2014

Dear Secretary Kerry:

Aloha and welcome to the Hawaiian Islands. I am a Professor of Law at the University of Hawai`i William S. Richardson School of Law.  I am writing in my individual capacity and on behalf of others. The views expressed here are not those of the University of Hawai`i or the School of Law.
Since you will be in Honolulu, August 13, 2014, I ask whether you would be willing to meet with the Hawaiian community. The purpose of this meeting would be to clarify a legal issue of foreign relations that has become of critical importance to all in Hawai`i these past months.

The Department of Interior, in June and July of this year held 15 statewide hearings as to whether to proceed with rulemaking that would result in administrative action recognizing Native Hawaiians as a federally recognized tribe. The testimony taken revealed that the single most important issue to the  hundreds testifying was whether the United States has sovereignty over the Hawaiian Islands and whether the Kingdom of Hawai`i, a sovereign and independent nation  continues to exist. This is a legal, not a political issue. We seek that you ask the Department of Justice, Office of Legal Counsel, to opine on whether the Kingdom of Hawai`i, as a subject of international law, ceases to exist in light of the international rule of law regarding the presumption of continuity.

The continued existence of the Kingdom would render the Department of Interior’s proposal legally questionable. The existence of the Kingdom raises the question that Hawai`i is occupied by the United States in violation of international and United States law. As a result, such occupation has extraordinary ramifications as to current United States foreign policy around the world because of the Kingdom of Hawai`i’s treaties with other independent nations.   Officials of the Departments of Interior and Justice who represented the United States at these hearings did not answer these questions deferring to the Department of State as the appropriate agency.

These issues were also raised by a State official, Dr. Crabbe, Chief Executive Officer of the Office of Hawaiian Affairs, an agency of the State of Hawai`i, in a letter, made public, to you. Although that letter was withdrawn by trustees of the Office of Hawaiian Affairs, its relevancy was affirmed by hundreds of those testifying who cited to it. It contains a more detailed explanation of points raised herein. A copy of Dr. Crabbe’s complete letter of May 5, 2014 can be found at:http://www.oha.org/news/oha%E2%80%99s-top-executive-makes-formal-request-us-department-state-legal-opinion-current-status-hawai  (last checked August 4, 2014 4:10 PM.)
Moreover, a more detailed letter of mine, further discussing these issues, is being sent to your office in Washington D.C.

I can be reached through my offices at the University of Hawai`i. Mahalo and Respectfully yours, Professor Williamson B.C. Chang, William S. Richardson School of Law, University of Hawai`i at Manoa.

Williamson Chang,
Professor of Law, University of Hawai`i

US SENATORS QUESTION LEGALITY OF NATIVE HAWAIIAN TRIBE

Grassroot Institute - August 6, 2014

A group of US Senators has sent a letter to the Secretary of the Department of the Interior (DOI), criticizing the recent Advanced Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPRM) that explored the creation of a government-to-government relationship with the Native Hawaiian community.

The letter, signed by Senators Jeff Flake (R-AZ), Lamar Alexander (R-TN), Tom Coburn (R-OK), and Mike Lee (R-UT), objects strongly to the Department's ANPRM on legal as well as prudential grounds.

In the letter, the Senators reiterate the concerns about the constitutionality of a race-based government.

They then go on to question the DOI's authority to act in this matter and raise the issue of whether this is more properly the domain of the US Congress -

"Even if you disagree that the reestablishment of a Native Hawaiian Government would be patently unconstitutional, Congress has not enacted legislation authorizing the Department of the Interior ("the Department") to engage in such a rulemaking. In fact, Congress has repeatedly refused to adopt legislation that would recognize a Native Hawaiian government or reestablish an administrative path for doing so. As such, any unilateral efforts by the Department to move forward administratively are unlawful."

DESPERATION IN ACTION - ROBIN DANNER, CNHA & THE SCHAA TELL US TRIBES HAWAIIANS SUPPORT FEDERAL RECOGNITION

Please forward this to all Hawaiians and our supporters.

A big mahalo to everyone who has taken the time to submit testimony online to tell the US Dept. Of Interior “NO!” to federal recognition for Kanaka Maoli.

The majority of testimony already submitted online is running against the push to turn Kanaka Maoli into US Hawaiian Indians.

Because of this, those who are backing this scheme have become very nervous.

As a result, Robin Danner is claiming that she and CNHA president Michelle Kauhane met last week with 38 Great Plains Tribes and their chairmen in Montana and were able to convince them to submit testimony supporting the current push for Hawaiian federal recognition.

This outrageous act shows how desperate they are and is further proof they will stop at nothing to get their way - at the expense of you, your `ohana and all Hawaiian Kingdom subjects.

Their desperation shows in a document Robin Danner and the SCHAA created called a “Draft Resolution for Consideration by Tribal Leaders.”

In it, she not only asks Tribal Leaders to sign on a resolution supporting US federal recognition for Hawaiians but she also falsely claims the majority of Hawaiians in fact support US federal recognition.

Here is what she says -

The majority Support, and know that the survival of our people, like the survival of your people, is greatly enhanced through Self Governance recognized by the United States.

Over 125,000 Native Hawaiians have come together and enrolled on our Base Roll, recognized by the State of Hawaii, to reorganize a Native Hawaiian Government
.”


And if you were one of those that gave heartfelt testimony at the DOI hearings throughout Hawai`i, here is how Robin Danner describes you to Tribal Leaders across the US -
 

The opposition is a minority, but a particularly angry minority. During the DoI hearings in Hawaii, it was not uncommon for these individuals to resort to name calling of the federal officials which included 2 DoI Assistant Secretaries. While not condoned by most Native Hawaiian leaders, it is a behavior indicative of disenfranchisement and mistrust.” 

You may view the entire document at - http://TinyURL.com/DannerLies

In light of these outrageous lies, we are asking you to let US indian tribes know that you are AGAINST  both US federal recognition for Hawai`i and attempts of US tribes to influence this process.

Go here - http://TinyURL.com/TribalLeadersDirectory and starting on page five you will find email and contact information for all US BIA recognized tribes.

This is a large document with hundred of tribes listed. We realize that no one person can email every single tribe.

However it is imperative that we contact as many as possible given what is at stake.

Time is quickly running out. The deadline to submit testimony to the DOI is August 19th.

Please set aside some time every day between now and August 19th to contact as many tribal leaders as you can and tell them “NO!” to federal recognition and their misguided attempts to influence the process in Hawai`i.

THE DIRTY DOZEN THE OFFICE OF HAWAIIAN AFFAIRS, COUNCIL FOR NATIVE HAWAIIAN ADVANCEMENT & US DEPT. OF INTERIOR ARE PRACTICING ON HAWAIIANS

1. Convince the Hawaiian that he should be patient and that progress takes time.
 

2. Make him believe that things are being done for his own good.
 

3. Get some Hawaiian people to do the dirty work. There are always those who will act to the disadvantage of their own people.
 

4. Consult the Hawaiian, but do not act on the basis of what you hear.
 

5. Insist that the Hawaiian "GOES THROUGH THE PROPER CHANNELS". Make the channels and the procedures so difficult that he won't bother to do anything.
 

6. Allow a few individuals to "MAKE THE GRADE" and then point to them as examples.
 

7. Appeal to the Hawaiian's sense of fairness, and tell him that, even though things are pretty bad, it is not right for him to make strong protests.
 

8. Make the Hawaiian believe that things could be worse, and convince him that to attempt to regain a right he has lost is likely to jeopardize the rights that he still has.
 

9. Set yourself up as the protector of the Hawaiian's human rights, then act on only those violations you choose.

10. Insist on unanimity, then play one group's special situation against another group's wishes.

11. Select very limited alternatives, then tell the Hawaiian that he indeed has a choice.

12. Tell the Hawaiians they can't consider themselves when there is a whole nation to think of.
