KE AUPUNI UPDATE - NOVEMBER 2019

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 Urgency of Presenting the Nation 

 Remember this old finger rhyme?

 








How about we change it to this?

 








Of course, we are not a church, we are a nation. But the same principle applies. The point is, whether it’s a church or a nation, without people it’s not going anywhere.

For many years we have been diligently educating ourselves — and the world — that the Hawaiian Kingdom was never extinguished or relinquished… that ours is a lawful nation in continuity. We have talked about the ʻāina, the environment, the natural resources and the territorial boundaries.

We presented our history and the wrongs suffered from fake annexation, fake statehood, land rip-offs and other illegal acts... and how justice demands our nation be restored.

Mauna Kea has changed things. There has been a paradigm shift; an awakening to a new reality. We are no longer mired in the realm of concepts, intellectual discourse and legal gymnastics. With Kū Kiaʻi Mauna, the doors have been thrown wide open and we see ourselves — the people — standing as lāhui, keiki o ka ʻāina, aloha ʻāina and kapu aloha… the heart and naʻau of the nation…

The national consciousness of the people has been awakened... we know who we are and what our nation can be, and that it is up to us move forward together in kapu aloha to maka ala... envision and set the course to navigate the future!

Standing up the Nation
It is not only important that we rally and build our lāhui  here at home, it is crucial for us to gain visibility and credibility in the intenational community. For other countries to help us, they have to see physical (not just theoretical) evidence that there is a

real nation with real people passionately engaged in freeing ourselves and not sitting back, waiting for someone else to rescue us. They have to see that we are determined to go it alone if we have to.

The more we do to stand up our nation, the more likely it is for the world to “see” us... and stand alongside us.


Hawaiʻi loa kū like kākou! All Hawaiʻi stand together!

NOTE - The next few months is critical to triggering a breakthrough at the UN. Your kokua is needed to move us forward! Imua!

Kū`e! Kū Kia`i Mauna! Kapu Aloha!

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

TMT DENIES REPORT THAT TELESCOPE SITE DECISION IS IMMINENT
 



















Honolulu Star-Advertiser - October 29, 2019

Officials with the Thirty Meter Telescope on Monday denied a report in the Canary Islands that a decision on where to construct the $1.4 billion project will happen within the next few weeks.

The newspaper El Dia reported in its online edition Sunday that officials with the TMT International Observatory developers met with La Palma business leaders and told them that the decision on location would occur within “a matter of two or three weeks.”

The report comes as the TMT International Observatory Board of Governors is meeting this week in California at its regularly scheduled quarterly meeting.

The news of the imminent decision, according to the newspaper, came from TMT observatory scientist Christophe Dumas and Gordon Squires, TMT vice president for external relations, who met with the business leaders as part of a visit to the telescope’s backup site.

In the meeting, Dumas and Squires described the difficulties that the proposed cutting-edge telescope is experiencing in Hawai`i and said they believe La Palma is a real possibility as the location of the telescope.

In addition, they said the intention of the international coalition is to start construction in April.

In a statement sent Monday to the Honolulu Star-Advertiser, Squires said Mauna Kea remains the preferred site for the TMT, but the nonprofit continues to follow a process allowing it to relocate to its Plan B site on La Palma should it not be possible to build in Hawai`i.

 Squires, who is in California for the TMT board meeting, said no time frame has been identified for deciding on a location and that even if La Palma is selected as the site for TMT, it is unknown when construction might begin.

In any case, he added, the TMT has not yet received all the permits and permissions necessary to build on La Palma.

According to El Dia, the two- to three-week time frame matches what the president of the local town council has said about the timing of TMT’s decision-making.

Dumas and Squires told the business group that construction will last 10 years, the paper said, and that educational training will be available to the local population. The consortium, they said, is committed to offering annual scholarships — something it is already doing in Hawai`i.

Another newspaper, Diario de Avisos, reported Friday about Dumas’ visit to the island. 

The report said La Palma is becoming an increasingly probable location for the telescope, and next week’s meeting of the board of governors could be key to the fate of the TMT in the Canaries.

Diario de Avisos and other media outlets have been reporting in recent weeks that local officials are moving swiftly to process the permits necessary to give TMT the green light for construction.

But, as in Hawai`i, the TMT could run into some additional roadblocks. At least one environmental group in the Canary Islands has pledged to continue to fight the project.

An organization known as Ben Magec, part of the Spanish “Ecologists in Action” federation of environmental groups, already won a victory this summer when a judge overturned a concession granted by the local government.

In August, Pablo Batista, a Ben Magec spokesman, said in an email that the group will likely take legal action if the TMT were to win approvals once again.

Batista said the proposed La Palma construction site is a conservation area with archaeological sites that the group aims to protect.

Meanwhile, protesters continue to make their stand at Mauna Kea, blocking a project they say will desecrate a sacred summit. The nonviolent demonstration has been ongoing since the middle of July.

At this week’s TMT International Observatory quarterly meeting, representatives from Japan, Canada, India and China will meet with their partners from Caltech and the University of California.

Last month a report issued by a group of astronomers advising the Association of Canadian Universities for Research in Astronomy said holding out several years for construction on Mauna Kea may be worth it to get the superior viewing conditions found atop Hawai`i’s tallest mountain.

 The report to the Canadian Astronomical Society’s Canadian Long Range Plan 2020 panel says Mauna Kea’s site characteristics are vastly superior to La Palma’s.

“TMT is being built for future generations, and will have a productive lifetime of many decades. We should not be shortsighted about the impact of a few years’ delay, but must build the best telescope we can, on the best site we can: of the options available, this site is Maunakea,” the report said.

While the TMT is delayed, the project’s components and the scientific instruments continue to be manufactured around the world. Officials say they will be able to be mounted on the giant telescope whenever and wherever it is built.

KE AUPUNI UPDATE - OCTOBER 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 Nation Rising
Who are we? Many are kanaka maoli... many are not; many have declared themselves as Hawaiian nationals or Hawaiian Kingdom subjects... many have not yet done so. But one thing we do have in common is the underlying Aloha ʻĀina for Hawaiʻi nei. He Hawaiʻi au (I am Hawaiʻi). ʻO mākou ʻo Hawaiʻi (We are Hawaiʻi).

The Hawaiian Kingdom was a highly educated society, whose subjects were akamai and engaged in matters of public affairs; espesially when it came to matters of Aloha ʻĀina and governance. The Kuʻe actions we are seeing today spring from our legacy, indeed, our kuleana of Aloha ʻĀina... to mālama Hawaiʻi and to kūʻē against harmful acts that endanger our people and our lands.

Often called “resistance”, it is really the desire to defend and preserve the deep-seated cultural values and love of country, solidified into a national consciousness and identity of Aloha ʻĀina.

Todayʻs manifestations: Mauna Kea, Haleakalā, Nā Wai ʻEha, Waimanalo, Kahuku... are the echos of Kalama Valley, Kahoʻolawe, Waiahole-Waikāne, Hilo Airport...  back to the Kuʻe Petition, Aloha Aina rallies and other vigorous protests against annexation. This is not something new or frivolous, it is who we are.

The current resistance movement and the independence movement are not one and the same, but they are strongly related in Aloha ʻĀina... and fast approaching the point of merger...

We have clearly demonstrated that our love for our land compels us to oppose the continuation of unrestrained exploitation of our lands and resources... We have “put our foot down.” Now what are we going to do about it?

Next Ke Aupuni Update - The Urgency of Presenting a Nation
Remember that old finger rhyme?  Here is the church, here is the steeple...? How does that apply to us?

"THE TIME OF EXPLOITATION IS OVER"


MauiNow.com - October 20, 2019

Local farmers and community organizers are calling for the end of the “era of sugar plantations, plantation politics, and rhetoric in Nā Wai ‘Ehā.”

During an impassioned press conference in Wailuku earlier today, members of Hui o Nā Wai ʻEhā expressed their stance on the status of their contested case for water rights.

The group, comprised of farmers from Waikapū, Wailuku, Waiheʻe, and Waiʻehu, is a plaintiff in the longstanding case against Hawaiʻi Commercial & Sugar Company.

HC&S diverted about 30 million gallons of water daily from Nā Wai ʻEhā streams to feed its sugarcane fields in Central Maui for decades.

Last year, Mahi Pono acquired 41,000 acres from HC&S and requested to reopen the nearly completed case to take over the sugar companyʻs water use permit request, prolonging over a decade of litigation.

The state Board of Land and Natural Resources recently granted HC&Sʻ parent company, Alexander & Baldwin, a one-year revocable permit to continue diversions next year, allowing Mahi Pono the water it requested for its 3,700 acres of diversified agriculture. 

With this permit, Mahi Pono plans to divert about 45 million gallons per day.

During todayʻs conference, hui member Lani Eckart-Dodd called Mahi Ponoʻs request to reopen the case an effort to “request an inflated, highly unrealistic water allocation.” 

“Mahi Pono’s lands were never historically farmed or suited for food production,” Eckart-Dodd added. 

“We will not allow almost two decades worth of our collective work as a community and lāhui to restore pono be derailed.”

Eckart-Dodd said water mauka to makai streamflow should be re-established to allow access for the “stewards who are genealogically tied to our lands and waters.”

“The time of exploitation and wastefulness over,” Eckart-Dodd asserted....
