KE AUPUNI UPDATE - APRIL 2019
8y Leon Siu -  Hawaiian National

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.

------
The Quick Facts Series…
THE SITUATION OF
THE HAWAIIAN ISLANDS
QUICK FACTS #8


OVERCOMING THE IDENTITY CRISIS...

Guess what? This morning I woke up in the Hawaiian Kingdom! I stretched, drew a few deep breaths, freshened up, brushed my teeth, went for a walk, showered, had breakfast, checked my emails, drove to town, had meetings, etc., etc… And I did it all in the Hawaiian Kingdom! I look around me, the mountains, the ocean, the trees, the wind, the rain, the sunshine, the clouds… the homes, the tall buildings, the country, the freeways, Waikiki…it’s all in the Hawaiian Kingdom.

We are Hawaiians, not Americans… We live in the Kingdom of the Hawaiian Islands, not the United States of America. The sooner we start living our lives with that awareness, the sooner our identity and our country’s identity will emerge.

Steven Biko, the great South African activist said: The most potent weapon in the hands of the oppressor is the mind of the oppressed. How true! If we keep thinking of ourselves as an oppressed people, we remain oppressed. If we keep saying the United States is “the mainland” it binds us to the notion that we are a subservient state.

On the other hand, if we act as a free people, we are a free people… and whatever constraints imposed by the U.S. and the Fake State are merely temporary obstacles… obstacles that we can overcome.

Our country is not going to be “given back to us.” It never went anywhere. It’s still here! Yes, the intruder has messed things up a bit, but we can fix it and rebuild it into a country that reflects the best of who we are as a people and a culture.

The time of thinking of ourselves as a nation in distress has passed. We are a nation on the rise!
 
 

Ua mau ke ea o ka ʻāina i ka pono. The sovereignty (life) of the land is perpetuated in righteousness.

Malama pono,
Leon Siu

SETTING THE RECORD STRAIGHT - A CRY FOR TRUTH & TRANSPARENCY AT OHA


Thursday, April 11, 2019

SECRET TIMELINE SHOWS OHA LYING TO LEGISLATURE WHILE STONEWALLING LLC AUDIT


















Hawai`i Free Press - By Andrew Walden - April 7, 2019


Legislators are moving HB172 and HB402 to transfer as much as $139M in ceded lands arrears to the Office of Hawaiian Affairs (OHA) and boost the cap on OHA’s annual ceded lands payments from $15M a year to $35M a year.... 

...Both bills make the increase in ceded lands payments contingent on public release of a “fiscal and performance audit” of OHA's LLCs.

OHA has told legislators again and again, in testimony between February 28, 2019 and April 4, 2019, “the audit is ongoing” -- but internal documents provided to Hawai'i Free Press show OHA and its LLCs have effectively stopped the audit by refusing to provide auditors with necessary records since last fall. 

The documents--being made public for the first time--include a November 27, 2018 CliftonLarsonAllen (CLA) audit status report and November 30, 2018 letter to Trustees Chair Colette Machado from Trustee Hulu Lindsey, a March 8, 2019 timeline, and an April 2, 2019 “Tentative Timetable,” all “prepared by (auditor) CliftonLarsonAllen LLP….”

March 28, 2019, OHA, testifying before the Senate Ways and Means Committee, claims: “The term of the contract is from Sept. 4, 2018 through April 30, 2019. The audit is ongoing and the Board’s commitment remains firm.”

False.

OHA Trustees’ Committee on Resource Management (RM) agenda for Wednesday, April 10, 2019, includes “New Business: Action Item RM #19-02: ‘Amendment to extend the Time of Performance for OHA Contract #3284.’”  3284 is the audit contract.  The proposal is to “extend the Time of Performance…from April 30, 2019 to December 16, 2019.”

Why?

“Due to a delay in the contractor obtaining records requested….” 

CLA’s timeline shows the LLCs and OHA administration repeatedly refusing to provide key documents without which the audit cannot proceed.

In a November 14, 2018 interview with auditors, OHA CEO Kamana’o Crabbe—also a manager of some OHA LLCs--refused to discuss the LLCs with auditors.

CLA indicates it has not been paid by OHA on at least two “outstanding invoices....”

YOUR KOKUA NEEDED NOW! - DEMAND THE OFFICE OF HAWAIIAN AFFAIRS INDEPENDENT AUDIT NOT BE DELAYED

















Please forward this today to all Hawaiians and our supporters.

We wish to make you aware of a quickly developing situation that has very serious negative consequences for Office of Hawaiian Affairs beneficiaries.

An attempt of devious trickery is about to be perpetrated by the“Old Guard” Trustees led by Dan Ahuna and if successful it would deal a serious blow to transparency at OHA.

As you are probably aware the forensic audit being conducted at the Office of Hawaiian Affairs is currently scheduled to be completed by the end of this month with results released soon thereafter.

However, at tomorrowʻs OHA Committee on Resource Management meeting, Trustee Ahuna will be putting forth Action Item RM #19-02, which if approved, would delay the completion of the forensic audit as well as results released to beneficiaries and the public from April 30, 2019 to December 16, 2019.

Hereʻs why it is so critically important that this Action Item be defeated in tomorrowʻs Resource Committee meeting.

The contract of OHA CEO Kamana`opono Crabbe will expire June 30, 2019.

Should Action Item RM #19-02 (delay of forensic audit) be approved by a majority vote of OHA trustees this coming Wednesday, it could delay until December 16th any reporting of potential wrong doing discovered by the forensic audit which could include wrongdoing by OHAʻs CEO and administration.

That would mean OHA beneficiaries would not learn of any potential wrongdoing by OHAʻs administration until six months AFTER OHAʻs CEO contract had been potentially renewed for another three years!

Your help is urgently needed to demand OHA trustees not delay the completion of the forensic audit until December 16th when it will be too late to act on any wrongdoing uncovered by OHAʻs administration.

We ask that you do two very important things -

First, contact all OHA trustees immediately - today is the final day to do so -  and demand they vote AGAINST Action Item RM #19-02 at tomorrowʻs Committee on Resource Management meeting. Tell them you insist on transparency and accountability for all OHA employees and OHA funds.

Secondly, we ask that if at all possible you ATTEND and give testimony against this action item at tomorrowʻs meeting at 10 AM at OHAʻs headquarters in the OHA Board Room at Na Lama Kukui, 560 Nimitz Hwy., Suite 200, Honolulu 96817.

It is critically important that you let them know in person that you demand accountability and honesty.

We have attached below the OHA Action Item RM #19-02 official document.

Please read it.

Please contact Dan Ahuna and the other OHA trustees to let them know you demand they vote to defeat tomorrow this underhanded attempt to hide potential wrongdoing by OHAʻs administration.

If you have not already done so, please contact OHA right now -

Rick, co-owner of Hui Kū Maoli Ola, a plant nursery dedicated to restoring Hawai`iʻs native plants, surprised us by revealing there have been three separate Hawai`is over time that had completely different natural environments. During our tour of Hui Kū Maoli Ola, it did not take us long to realize how devastated Hawai`iʻs natural environment has become.

VICTORY FOR TRANSPARENCY -
COURT RULES OHA MUST MAKE ITʻS LLC CHECK LEDGERS PUBLIC
  















Hawai`i Free Press - March 29, 2019 - By Andrew Walden

Oahu First Circuit Court Judge Jeffrey Crabtree has ruled.

Limited Liability Corporations (LLCs) owned and controlled by the State of Hawaii Office of Hawaiian Affairs are subject to the State Uniform Information Practices Act (UIPA).

Hawai’i Free Press editor Andrew Walden applied to the court for an order directing three of OHA’s seven LLCs to release their check registers.

OHA has poured over $34M into its seven LLCs—contradicting attorney Kimberly Greeley, “represent(ing) Hi’ilei Aloha, LLC, Ho’okele Pono, LLC, and Hi’ipaka LLC” who, in January, 2017, falsely claimed “the State … does not provide any funding for the Companies.”

To find out where the money went, Hawai’i Free Press, in November, 2016, filed a separate open records request for the entire check register for three of the LLCs. After two months of stalling, the LLCs then-attorney Greeley wrote back claiming that the LLCs were private organizations and they—and their assets such as Waimea Valley--were no longer property of the Office of Hawaiian Affairs.

Since that shocking response from Greely, The LLC check registers have been sought by attorneys for Abigail Kawananakoa, by OHA Trustees, and by an auditing firm hired by OHA to look at the LLCs. None of them have yet succeeded in making the records public. Greeley did not represent the LLCs in court.

After five months of litigation, Judge Crabtree, March 29, 2019, issued a seven page ‘Minute Order’ proclaiming:

“…Managers have explicitly limited OHA's access to information, and reserved their right to continue to do so….”

“The court finds as a matter of law that each (LLC) is an ‘agency’ for UIPA purposes….”

“It is apparently not disputed that OHA is an instrumentality of the State of Hawai’i….”

“…the court finds as a matter of law that OHA owns, and has authority and control over the operation and management of the LLC’s operations….”

...Desperate to keep the LLCs secrets, OHA insiders are already planning counter strategies...

SMITHSONIAN SHINES LIGHT ON HAWAIIAN KINGDOM QUEENS


















Colorlines.com - March 18, 2019


The Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center’s Learning Together program announced in an emailed statement last week that, as part of Women’s History Month, it will share teaching materials on two women who were critical to the history of the Hawaiian Kingdom

The Center’s Learning Lab, an online resource for educators, includes a wide range of content focusing on Queen Kapi‘olani (1834-1899) and Queen Liliʻuokalani (1838-1917)—two of the most important leaders in a rich native culture that existed long before the establishment of the United States.

The archival objects include a personal, recreational wa‘a (vah-ah), or canoe, that Queen Kapi‘olani gave the Smithsonian as a gift of goodwill from the Hawaiian Kingdom to the United States. The Learning Together website also features a short video that explores some of the secrets of the canoe—which at 231 years old is the oldest known Hawaiian canoe in any museum, anywhere in the world.


Those who visit the site will learn that almost 200 years* before Hawai‘i became the 50th state, women played a powerful role in the kingdom’s rich culture. For example, Queen Kapi‘olani was an influential philanthropist who advocated for the health of women in Hawai‘i. She became an ambassador of the Kingdom, traveling across the Pacific Ocean and the United States for the first White House state dinner in 1874. She also established the Kapi‘olani Maternity Home on the island of O‘ahu, where mothers could receive support and care for themselves and their children.

Queen Liliʻuokalani was the last queen regent of the Hawaiian Kingdom before the government was overthrown by the United States in 1893. Her love for her country and citizens led her to fight for their equal rights, land and restoration of the Kingdom many years after the Hawaiian government was overthrown. A gifted writer, composer and musician, she created many popular works, including the famous song “Aloha Oe,” which she wrote while under house arrest for her attempts to reinstate the Hawaiian Kingdom.
