WHAT IS HULI? FIND OUT ON “VOICES OF TRUTH - ONE-ON-ONE WITH HAWAI`IʻS FUTURE"


"HULI - A Visit With Andre Perez" 

When we first heard about HULI, the Hawai`i Unity & Liberation Institute, we knew we had to talk with Andre Perez to discover what itʻs all about.  Our curiosity was heightened even more because Andre, who was one of the protectors arrested at Mauna Kea, had also spent some time at Standing Rock leading trainings. When we met with him he explained HULI was created to train people throughout Hawai`i in highly effective non-violent direct action techniques. Join us in our fascinating visit with Andre as he shares with us his journey, how he learned these new skills, and what he experienced that made him realize the importance of teaching these new methods in Hawai`i - Watch It Here

HAWAI`I CHARTER SCHOOLS WIN
CNHA LOSES AT OHA


















The Office of Hawaiian Affairs Resource Management Committee today voted against appointing a middleman to disburse a $3 million grant to Hawaiian focused charter schools over two years.

In a 6-0 vote (Trustees Dan Ahuna, Lei Ahu Isa and Robert Lindsey were excused), the Resource Management Committee opted to instead give the grant funds directly to the charter schools, instead of to the Council for Native Hawaiian Advancement for administration purposes. Of concern to several Trustees was the fact that OHA Administration had not obtained approval from the Board before awarding the grant to CNHA.

In response to a motion made at today’s meeting to award grant administration to CNHA, the Trustees entertained an amendment to instead have OHA administer the grant in-house so that the funds could go directly to the charter schools.

According to Trustee Akina, “This issue was not about who receives the grant but the fact that the OHA Administration exceeded its authority in communicating a grant award. I commend my fellow Trustees for restoring the proper balance of authority within OHA.”
 

The RM Committee action will now proceed to the Board of Trustees for ratification on October 19.

ATTEND OHAʻS BOARD MEETING TOMORROW
SAY "NO!" TO GIVING THE CNHA $1.5 MILLION CHARTER SCHOOLS FUNDS



Hawaiian Focused Charter Schools Need Your Help

The Office of Hawaiian Affairs (OHA) did not follow its own grants process and should reset its grants process to allow for the $3 million (over two years) in Hawaiian Focused Charter School (HFCS) monies to go directly to the HFCS's instead of going through the Council for Native Hawaiian Advancement (CNHA), a political organization with a loaded agenda.  CNHA did not consult with principals, staff, board members, parents, and other stakeholders of HFCS before applying for these monies on their behalf.  Furthermore, CNHA as an organization has a mission and vision that is not aligned with Hawaiian Charter Schools and may very well be ill equipped to advance community driven and culturally responsive Hawaiian education.  These OHA monies are important to the operations and survival of HFCS since they only receive 50-60% of the per pupil allocation from the State of Hawai'i that traditional Department of Education Schools receive.  As a parent of Hālau Kū Māna New Century Charter School I am asking for your help.

Here is what you can do to help.

1.  Sign a letter asking OHA to give $3 million in HFCS funding directly to the Hawaiian Charter Schools.  Send this NEW form letter by clicking here  FORM LETTER TO OHA TRUSTEES AND CEO ASKING THEM TO RESET THE GRANTS PROCESS

2.  Sign a letter asking CNHA not to accept these fund on the behalf of Hawaiian Focused Charter Schools by clicking here FORM LETTER TO CNHA CEO & BOARD.

3.  Attend the next OHA Board meeting tomorrow, Wednesday, October 11, 2017.

ALERT! - TELL OHA NO CHARTER SCHOOL FUNDS TO THE CNHA

Please forward this to all Hawaiians and our supporters. 


We want to make you aware this Wednesday's OHA Resource Management Committee meeting, October 11, 2017 at 10 AM includes an action item for trustees to decide what they want to do about the CNHA grant and if they instead want to give funds directly to the charter schools by eliminating the "administrator" aka middle-man. 

Please encourage as many people as possible to come to the meeting and give public testimony before the Trustees go into Executive Session to discuss the matter privately with legal counsel

When the Trustees come out of executive session, they will vote on their recommendation during open session.

Please give a short and simple testimony that asks the trustees to all make the same decision.

Please speak slowly and deliberately look at each trustee in the eyes as you say their name.

Hereʻs all you have to say -

"Chair Hulu, Vice Chair Waihe`e, Board Chair Machado, Board Vice Chair Ahuna, Trustee Ahu Isa, Trustee Akana, Trustee Akina, Trustee Apo, Trustee Bob Lindsey, I humbly ask all of you to please rescind the CNHA Charter School grant and instead, give the charter school funds directly to each of the 17 Hawaiian Focused Charter Schools. Mahalo for your support."

That's all there is to it.

For those of you that cannot attend Wednesdayʻs meeting, please send an email to the trustees before Wednesday with the above message.

It is critical for everyone to repeat the same message in order to impress upon the trustees that everyone is united in a desire to financially support the charter schools directly.

Feel free to share this with your charter school contacts also.

FREE HAWAI`I TV SURPASSES OVER ONE MILLION VIEWS

Weekly Internet Report Celebrates Milestone & Worldwide Viewership 


Free Hawai`i TV, the weekly online report about Independence for Hawai`i, has now surpassed the million view mark in its eleven years of broadcasting.

Launched by the Koani Foundation on YouTube in September, 2006, Free Hawai`i TV has aired a report every single week since its inception on various aspects  of the political state of the Hawaiian Kingdom in its quest for freedom and de-occupation by the US.

“We are excited Free Hawai`i TV has reached this very important milestone,” states host `Ehu Kekahu Cardwell. “Our viewership is now worldwide and huge. We say mahalo to our loyal weekly viewers from around the world and their support in helping make this happen.”

“It continues to be our mission to educate viewers about the true history of Hawai`i, in particular the illegal 1893 overthrow of the Hawaiian Kingdom government and the prolonged US occupation of Hawai`i to this day,” remarked Cardwell.

A part of the Free Hawai`i Broadcasting Network, Free Hawai`i TV, can be viewed at FreeHawaiiTV.com.

New reports are aired every Wednesday, and also posted on numerous other websites, blogs and Twitter as well as airing on over thirty-five separate Facebook pages weekly.

Free Hawai`i TV has viewers in Hawai`i and throughout the Pacific, across the US, Europe, Asia  and in the Middle East.

Free Hawai`i TV has been featured and reported on by many other media outlets throughout the years.

FLASH - BOARD OF LAND & NATURAL RESOURCES APPROVES THIRTY METER TELESCOPE ATOP MAUNA KEA
 






















Hawai`i's land board today has granted a construction permit for the Thirty Meter Telescope atop Mauna Kea, a mountain which Hawaiians consider sacred.

It is a project that has sharply divided those who live in Hawai`i.

The $1.4 billion Thirty Meter Telescope has pitted people who say the instrument will provide educational and economic opportunities against those who say it will desecrate the tallest mountain and most sacred land in Hawai`i.

Plans for what would be one of the world's largest telescopes date to 2009, when scientists selected Mauna Kea after a five-year around-the-world campaign to find the ideal site for what telescope officials say "will likely revolutionize our understanding of the universe."

The project won a series of approvals from Hawai`i, including a permit to build on conservation land in 2011. 


Protectors of the mauna blocked attempts to start construction. 

Then in 2015, the state Supreme Court invalidated the permit and ordered the project to undergo the process all over again.

HAWAI`I CHARTER SCHOOLS & PARENTS UPSET AT OHA PLAN TO GIVE $1.5 MILLION TO CNHA

HawaiiNewsNow - September 21, 2017

Every year, the Office of Hawaiian Affairs gives $1.5 million to Hawaiian charter schools. Halau Ku Mana, one of 17 Hawaiian focused charter gets about $50,000-$60,000 of the OHA money.

Recently, OHA awarded the contract to administer the funds to the Council for Native Hawaiian Advancement instead of another group called KALO. 


An internal memo shows the Council for Native Hawaiian Advancement received a score of 81.3 while Kanu O Ka Aina Learning Ohana (KALO) got 75.

Charter school supporters testified at the OHA board meeting.

I humbly request that you do not give the charter school funding to the Council for Native Hawaiian Advancement which is a political organization rather than an educational non-profit," said Healani Sonoda-Pale, parent at Halau Ku Mana.


"I'm worried that after the first year that those resources may decrease. I'm worried that CHNA will leverage the funds for purposes that aren't education related," said Keoni Bunag,  principal at Halau Ku Mana.

The Council favors US federal recognition while many at Halau Ku Mana oppose it.

"I think at the core of the mistrust is the opposition to our position on federal recognition," said Michelle Kauhane, President and CEO of the Council for Native Hawaiian Advancement.

The new contract hasn't be finalized yet and the OHA board will take up this issue on its September 27th agenda.
