STATE LEGISLATORS DECIDE NOT TO END DISCRIMINATION AGAINST HAWAIIANS
















Hawaiian Nationals Once Again Left With No Remedy

On Tuesday by a vote of 0 to 5, Senate Resolution 159 was killed in the Senate Hawaiian Affairs Committee. They essentially voted not to do anything to fix the problem of rampant discrimination against Hawaiians, specifically, Hawaiian Nationals.

Introduced by Senator Maile Shimabukuro, Senate Resolution 159 called for the State to convene a commission to find ways that Hawaiian Nationals who are currently being abused by institutional discrimination, can live in harmony within the Hawaiian Islands, currently being governed by the State of Hawaii.

Leon Siu, co-author of the resolution stated, “By doing nothing, the State is allowing the continuation of the current practice of nationality discrimination against Hawaiians.”

State and US Federal civil rights laws prohibit discrimination on the basis of national origin.

Siu continued, “To their credit the State strives to honor these civil rights for everyone within the Hawaiian Islands, US citizens, Japanese nationals, Chinese nationals, British nationals, and so forth. The only nationality that does not receive equal protection under the law in the State of Hawaii, is the Hawaiian Nationality.”

What or who are Hawaiian Nationals? Like other nationalities, they are the body politic of a nation. They are those who identify with and maintain their first allegiance to a particular nation. Hawaiian Nationals are those whose first allegiance is to the Hawaiian Nation. Most of those who identify themselves as Hawaiian nationals are descended from subjects of the Hawaiian Kingdom.

Poka Laenui, another co-author of the resolution remarked “This resolution does not ask the State Legislature to recognize an independent state of Hawaii, a new (or old) Hawaiian government, or any other political entity. It asks instead that the Legislature conform its laws and policies to the reality of Hawaiian Nationals and to remove barriers to their inclusion within the Hawaii society.”

Siu also said “It is ironic that Hawaii, the wanna-be “sanctuary state,” would offer safe haven to all aliens regardless of their background, yet not lift a finger to protect the people who love this land and have lived here for generations.”

HISTORIC KAHIKINUI ON “VOICES OF TRUTH - ONE-ON-ONE WITH HAWAI`IʻS FUTURE"

"Pioneers Of Kahikinui - A Visit With Donna Sterling"

When we met Donna Sterling at Kahikinui in southeast Maui, we discovered that while itʻs one of the largest tracts of undeveloped land in all Hawai`i, during ancient times it was home to a large population of Hawaiians. Because much skill and hard work are required to live in such a dry lava landscape, only fifteen homestead families currently live there, of which Donna is proudly one.

KE AUPUNI UPDATE - JUNE 2020
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.
























Ending Discrimination Against Hawaiian Nationals

“[U.S.] Federal laws prohibit discrimination based on a person's national origin, race, color, religion, disability, sex, and familial status. …[Thus, it is] illegal to discriminate because of a person's birthplace, ancestry, culture or language. This means people cannot be denied equal opportunity because they or their family are from another country, because they have a name or accent associated with a national origin group, because they participate in certain customs associated with a national origin group, or because they are married to or associated with people of a certain national origin.” — The U.S. Department of Justice's Civil Rights Division

In violation of their own Federal laws, the State of Hawaii has been constantly harassing, persecuting, arresting, prosecuting and jailing Hawaiian nationals, treating us as if we are criminals or illegal aliens and preventing us from leading normal, ordinary lives. The State denies Hawaiian nationals services that are otherwise available to anyone else living in the Hawaiian Islands — unless we say we are “U.S. citizens” and that we reside in the “State of Hawaii.” Thus, the State has been forcing us Hawaiian nationals, through coercion, to assume U.S. citizenship in order to be able to live and function normally in our own country. Forced citizenship is a huge violation of international law.

Senate Resolution 159 on Hawaiian Nationality is being heard at the State Legislature. It is a rude awakening for lawmakers. It had never occurred to them that this shocking form of discrimination is going on, imbedded throughout the State government system. Senate Resolution 159 not only brings the violation to their attention, it forces them to create a remedy. SR 159 is predicated on the presumption that we Hawaiian nationals already exist and as such, have the right to live freely in our own country. The fact of Hawaiian nationality is yielded. All the State has to do is figure out how to make way for us.

The resolution calls upon the State to form a commission to recommend what the State should implement to treat Hawaiian nationals (and Hawaiian nationality) with proper respect and fairness under their own law. The good thing is, whether Senate Resolution 159 passes or not, the cat’s already out of the bag… This means the State’s discriminatory acts against Hawaiian nationals have to stop immediately, even before they figure out how they are going to adjust to us.

`IOLANI PALACE IS IN DANGER


















Honolulu Civil Beat - June 23, 2020 - By Denby Fawcett

`Iolani Palace reopened Friday, welcoming visitors for the first time since March 18, when the palace shut down with most of the rest of the state to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

But what visitors were unable to see as they walked through the elegant rooms is the decay of the building from decades of postponed maintenance.

`Iolani Palace is the only official royal palace in the United States.
 

It was built by King Kalakaua, opening in 1882. It served as the Hawaiian royalty’s residence and place of business until the overthrow of the monarchy in 1893.

In the palace attic, two leaks in the roof allow water to seep into the curator’s storage room where priceless artifacts are safeguarded.
 

So far, nothing has been damaged because of the diligence of palace workers who rush to put out plastic buckets during big storms to protect historic materials from water damage.
 

The entire roof was redone during the eight-year, $6 million restoration project in the 1970s that turned the palace into the treasure it is today.

 Since then nothing has been done to repair the slate part of the roof.
 

“Sometimes we think of the palace as more of a tourist attraction, but what it represents is irreplaceable,” said Glenn Mason, Hawai`i’s premier historic restoration architect. Mason has been the lead architect on 11 major phases of restoration work at the palace.
 

Evidence of other deterioration, he points out, is the “sugaring” of the plaster on walls that “comes off as powder in my fingers. The plaster just rubs off. We need to do something about it.”
 

Strips of plaster are peeling off of some iron columns.
Cast iron elements including the railing on the second floor have rust bleeding through and need to be repainted.

Wooden boards on the second-floor lanai have rotted.

Two dangerously unstable pergolas — shaded seating areas — on the palace grounds are fenced off with an “area closed” warning.

Mason did the last major repair on the palace’s Coronation Pavilion in 1983, but now the pavilion is weakened by cracks in its concrete, making it too unstable to use.
 

“`Iolani Palace is not going to heal itself. It is important to recognize that this is arguably one of the more important buildings in the state with a critical role in telling Hawai`i’s history,” says Mason.

Money Is Running Out


The palace is owned by the state but maintained and operated by the nonprofit Friends of `Iolani Palace.


The Friends’ revenue for salaries and operations comes from the gift shop and palace tour ticket sales, special events and donations.
 

But Friends’ Executive Director Paula Akana says since the palace shut down in March it has lost $550,000 and is still losing about $7,700 a day.
 

Before the coronavirus, 450 to 550 visitors daily paid to tour the palace rooms. Now with social distancing restrictions, no more than 105 visitors can come a day and only in carefully staggered groups of five.

The palace is open now only on Fridays and Saturdays to visitors making telephone or online reservations. Without more funding, Akana expects the palace to run out of operating money in three to four months.
 

She is urging local residents to visit and buy memberships. She is also seeking grants from organizations promoting educational opportunities in museums and cultural sites.

At the beginning of this year’s legislative session, two bills were advancing to help pay for many of the needed repairs at the palace, including the roof.

“It seemed very few lawmakers had been aware of the problems at the palace. When we told them about leaks in the roof, it was a real shock to them,” Akana said.

She became executive director of the Friends of `Iolani Palace last July after 35 years as a reporter at KITV. “We had a lot of hope and then came the pandemic,” she said.
 

State lawmakers who reconvened Monday have made it clear in the three-week session their main focus will be on addressing Hawai`i’s unprecedented economic collapse — especially helping the more than 200,000 now-unemployed residents. So, short a miracle, the palace will have to wait for funding.
 

“This doesn’t mean the need for repairs will go away,” Mason says. “The roof won’t stop leaking. Work costing $100,000 today will cost $200,000 in the future. It is hard to expect people to put money into preserving an old building when thousands of people are out of work, but the answer is not deferring the repairs.”
 

The state needs to find a way to work in a partnership with the Friends of `Iolani Palace to stay on top of the fragility of the old building.

“What is needed most is a dedicated source of funding,” says Akana.

Short of that, one of the stalled bills included a logical proposal: require the Department of Land and Natural Resources to conduct a structural and electrical survey of `Iolani Palace to submit to the Legislature with a five- to 10-year plan to proceed with repairs, restoration and maintenance of structures and grounds.

`Iolani Palace is like any old home. It needs a plan and money to keep it beautiful into the future.

VICTORY - PROTECTORS WIN AGAIN
SHERWOOD FOREST PROJECT STOPPED



















KITV.com - Thursday June 18, 2020 

Mayor Kirk Caldwell gathered with Waimanalo community leaders, both supporters and opponents of the grass field being built at Waimanalo Bay Beach Park, to announce that his administration would be stopping further progress on the project, including not proceeding with any part of the Master Plan.

“It is clear to me that despite our differences about this field, everyone involved in today’s announcement cares deeply about our community, about Waimanalo, and about the future we are leaving our kids,” shared Mayor Caldwell, who continued, “I’ve made the decision that this administration is pau with the field and master plan.  I am pau with the field and master plan. The next steps are up to this community to determine, but it is time for the land and our community to heal.  I look to you as kupuna and next generation leaders – to determine what happens here as place people can come together, decide how to do things differently, communicate differently, and respect all views while building on the dream you have as a community.”

Ku'ike Kamakea-'Ohelo, President of Save of Sherwoods shared the statement, “He leo kako'o keia i ka Meia i 'olelo ai, i pukana ai, i puana ai, i ka ho'oku 'ana i ke kukulu 'ana o keia paka pa'anipopo.  Keia manawa, o ke aloha ka mea wale i koe.”  This is a voice in support of the Mayor’s announcement to restore the parcel we know as Phase I.  Now, aloha is all that remains. Kamakea-'Ohelo also expressed appreciation to many community members and City staff, especially the Honolulu Police Department Community Policing Team, who played a critical role in the ongoing discussions with the City.

Earlier this year, the City administration had announced that after long discussions with project opponents and leaders of Save Our Sherwoods, they had come to an agreement to move forward on finishing a grassy field without a play apparatus, limited parking, and a commitment to support the cultural and historical importance of the site.  Mayor Caldwell has long expressed that he would not pursue the remainder of the Master Plan.  However, COVID-19 coincided with the planned re-start of the field construction, and Mayor Caldwell paused the work for community health and safety reasons given the potential for gatherings in protest and the discovery of a bone fragment.

Department of Design and Construction Deputy Director Haku Milles explained that there are still things that have to be done to restore the site, including leveling the construction mounds and planting ground cover. “It has always been important to Mayor Caldwell that we restore this land from what was previously covered in invasive Christmas berries  and haole koa.  We are working to determine the best way to reesetablish ground cover that includes indigenous grass suited for this area.”  The City will also make funding avaiable for indigenous trees to be planted once the land and grass settles.

Mabel Keliihoomalu and Blanche McMillan, whom Mayor Caldwell affectionately calls “The Aunties,” were part of the community leadership that began planning for the project over a decade ago. “A long time ago, Sherwood Forest was our playground with all of our family – we used to go camping, fishing, and get together on the weekends,” shared Aunty Blanche, who continued, “we all need to work together, no grumbling, no protesting no more, put it on the table, bring in the kupuna for their advice, and let’s decide what we want to have in our Waimanalo.”

Aunty Mabel added, “I was one of those who planned it and worked really hard to get the monies in there and spent 10 years getting it through the City.  It hurt that we lost those funds for our community, but I am happy that we are able to come back to the table and incorporate everyone’s mana'o.”  She also excitedly shared the news of funding being announced for Azevedo Field, “this is because of you, the younger generation, coming to the table to advocate and the Mayor listening to your voices.”

Mayor Caldwell shared that the City budget to be announced later this week includes $1.2 million in funds to try to find a new solution for Azevedo Field, which has struggled with repairs for years due to tough clay soil conditions.  Other important projects in Waimanalo continue, including $6 million invested in the past few years into capital improvements to various bathrooms and playgrounds as well as the Waimanalo District Park gym, Waimanalo Beach Park pavilion, and Kaupo Beach Park.

“Sometimes things gotta get ugly before they get better, and that’s what happened,” shared Kalani Kalima, one of the project opponents.  “We would like to mahalo the Aunties and those that had the vision to provide for our keiki.  As makua, we gladly accept the responsibility to utilize lokahi, unity, in all of us coming together, laulima, to work together as one community – kupuna, makua, and 'opio – the kauhale, the ahupua'a, the community of Waimanalo to get our community forward.”

Mayor Caldwell closed, “Our community is built on relationships – and what we are doing today is putting those first and making a commitment to continue doing the hard work together of building a postive future for our kids.  Mahalo to everyone for giving this special place an even stronger voice.”

IWI KUPUNA PROTECTED IN HAKIPU`U

























KITV.com - June 18, 2020 

A group gathered Thursday morning in Hakipu'u to protest a project  in an area they is filled ancestral bones. Now, Kualoa Ranch says they are halting the project for two weeks.
Thursday morning, about 120 people gathered to block the access road leading to a construction site near Kualoa Ranch.

"Protectors," as they call themselves, are blocking Johnson Road off Kamehameha Highway over construction crews allegedly disturbing burial sites in the area.

A spokes person for Kualoa Ranch released the following statement:

"We recognize that some of our neighbors have concerns about iwi in the area.  We respect their concerns. We have agreed to stop construction for two weeks and look forward to meeting with the neighbors and representatives of the State Historic Preservation Department and O`ahu Island Burial Council."

KE AUPUNI UPDATE - JUNE 2020
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.
Aloha `Aina at Selma March 25, 1965





















The Kingdom Past and Future
The shocking murder of George Floyd under the knee of policeman Derek Chauvin was horrific! What happened was terrible and the outrage it triggered and demands for justice are totally warranted. But the inexcusable, yet now sadly predictable rioting, looting and wanton destruction, shows that America has more serious problems than racial issues; it has a dangerous culture of ignorance, hatred, violence and anarchy.

The knee-to-the-neck almost immediately reminded me of a story titled, “Strangling Hands on a Nation’s Throat” published in a San Francisco newspaper on September 30, 1887. It was referring to what America, with its greedy push for annexation, was doing to Hawaii. The article described a meeting in Hilo where people gathered to sign a petition opposing annexation and to voice their opinions. What ensued was an overwhelming, impassioned expression of Aloha ʻĀina. The clear motivation when our kupuna signed what we now call “The Kuʻe Petition” was Aloha ʻĀina, their deep, abiding love for their country.

Thank God that despite more than a century of Americanization, Aloha ʻĀina is still in the DNA of Hawaiians. We see it every day even amidst the pain and anguish of injustice. Aloha ʻĀina prevails.

Contrast how Americans respond to extremely provocative situations with violence and mayhem; and how Hawaiians with extreme provocations like the overthrow and seizure of our country, all the way to today’s Mauna Kea, Kahuku, Hunananiho… we respond with Aloha ʻĀina. It’s who we are! It is part of our deep culture that embraces and infects everyone who lives in our islands.

Due to many circumstances, including the destabilizing effects of the Covid-crisis, we are entering a time to envision the future we want for Hawaii. Study groups are having deep discussions about many facets of sustainability: our food supply, our economy, our education system, housing, our general health and welfare, orderly communities, preserving the environment, safe and peaceful neighborhoods… making roadmaps for the future.

So, can we Free Hawaii, jump-start and operate the Hawaiian Kingdom? Yes, we can! We are already eminently qualified — not in just with the knowledge and understanding of legal and political status — but in what matters most... Aloha ʻĀina.
