OBAMA SPITS IN THE FACE OF EVERY HAWAIIAN


Protest Na`i Aupuni Responds To DOI Ruling

2 years ago, the Office of Hawaiian Affairs CEO Kamana’opono Crabbe a letter dated May 5, 2014 to Secretary of State John Kerry—in it, he questioned the legitimacy of US jurisdiction in Hawai`i and requested proof of how the Hawaiian Kingdom was legally annexed to the United States.

Rather than answer the question and prove once and for all that the US legally annexed Hawai`i, President Obama hastily ordered that the DOI hold public hearings in Hawai`i to discuss federal recognition. Literally, within 2 months of Mr. Crabbe’s letter, hearings on 5 islands went on for 2 weeks. Thousands of Hawaiians came out, but only hundreds were able to testify. 95% of the Hawaiians who spoke out were opposed to any notion of federal recognition or state and federal interference in our right to self determination.

Since then, Obama and his DOI have been inventing processes and manipulating data to create the illusion that the Hawaiian people want to be a tribe. And OHA, a state agency that has spent tens of millions of dollars trying to force federal recognition down our throats, has spent even more money with their fake Kana`iolowalu list, their fake Na`i Aupuni elections, and their fake Na`i Aupuni ʻAha 2016 Constitution.

Today, President Obama and the democratic party’s Hawai`i delegation in DC announced that they now have a process. But all they are really doing is covering up the crime of the illegal, US overthrow of the Hawaiian Kingdom’s government in 1893—something they admitted to in 1993 federal legislation referred to as the Apology Resolution and Public Law 103-150.

Today, President Obama furthered the crime of the fake annexation and the crime of fake statehood.

Today, President Obama circumvented the legal processes that the US Congress is there for, so that he could personally sign an Executive Order and give fake recognition to federally chosen Hawaiians who do not represent the Hawaiian people.

Why? So that he, and whoever his successor is, can create a counterfeit settlement for the Crown and Government land of the Hawaiian Kingdom, the so-called ceded lands.

Today, President Obama spat in the face of every Hawaiian from Queen Liliuokalani down to us Hawaiians standing here right now.

The only Hawaiians this new federal lie will benefit are the ones who will make money off of it. There is nothing, and there never was anything in it for the Hawaiians who suffer from the poverty invented by the US occupation. Our people remain the most impoverished, with the highest rates of homelessness, incarceration, diabetes, cancer, suicide and on and on.

President Obama doesn’t give a damn about us and our homeland, which has been turned into the largest military command on earth, our `aina which has been turned into the largest concentration of open field GMO test sites on earth, our `aina which is constantly being desecrated and destroyed by US policies and corporations.

When we Hawaiians look at what is being done to us from the US government and corporations, all we see is total erasure and removal of us, total exploitation and theft of who we are and what belongs to us.

We are being devoured by resort lifestyles and the military takeover of our housing, so we can’t even afford to pay rent in our homeland. We are supposed to allow the ongoing desecration of what is the most sacred to us, places like Mauna Kea for the TMT project and places like Wai`aleale so that corporations can bottle our water and sell it. Rather than let us use our water to grow our food we are being forced to accept that 90% of everything we eat is shipped in from 2500 miles away.

This is unacceptable. We, as a people, cannot allow the United States and its greedy corporations and its bought off sellout Hawaiians to get away with this. If we allow this to go on our children and their children will pay the price.

DOI RULE IGNORES OVERWHELMING HAWAIIAN OPPOSITION TO FED WRECK

The Grassroot Institute criticized the Department of the Interior for subverting the will of Native Hawaiians on the issue of federal recognition. With the announcement of the DOI's rule to facilitate the reestablishment of a formal government-to-government relationship with the Native Hawaiian community, the President has reignited a controversy that had begun to wane in the wake of Na`i Aupuni's dissolution.

"Native Hawaiians are on record as overwhelmingly opposed to efforts by the Department of Interior to recognize or establish a Hawaiian tribe or government," stated Keli`i Akina, Ph.D., President of the Grassroot Institute. "Every survey by the Office of Hawaiian Affairs, from 1978 to the present, shows that Native Hawaiians want OHA to stop wasting money on federal recognition and, instead, to spend those millions on meeting the real needs of Hawaiians for housing, jobs, education, and healthcare. OHA and the DOI are on a crash course in their rejection of the will of the Hawaiian people."

The DOI proposed the rule in 2015, and the Grassroot Institute was among the many who submitted comments in opposition to the creation of a federal Native Hawaiian tribe. Grassroot's comments cited problems with the rule's Constitutionality, its attempt to usurp Congressional authority, and its divisive nature as only a few of the many reasons the rule should have been set aside.

Most of all, Grassroot cited the continual Native Hawaiian opposition to federal recognition, pointing out that by pushing for the creation of a Native Hawaiian polity, the rule would precipitate a legal challenge and fracture any sense of cultural unity among Native Hawaiian groups.

Dr. Akina continued: "With today's announcement, the bureaucrats in Washington have proved that they aren't listening to the Native Hawaiian people. We are still fresh from the disaster that was the Native Hawaiian Roll and the Na`i Aupuni constitutional convention. This rule only encourages OHA and the state to waste more time and resources on a problematic and unconstitutional nation-building effort."

HAWAIIANS JOIN DAKOTA PIPELINE PROTESTS

























Honolulu Star-Adverstiser  - September 20, 2016 

Some Native Hawaiians have joined thousands of American Indians in protesting the development of the controversial Dakota Access Pipeline.

Dr. Kalamaoka`aina Niheu, who practices family medicine on O`ahu, said she arrived in North Dakota earlier this month and is at the encampment of protesters to help provide health care. “This is my particular contribution,” she said.

Protesters have drawn the support of celebrities and politicians alike, including US Sen. Bernie Sanders.

Niheu said the protesters have developed an extraordinary health network to support the protest.

About a dozen Native Hawaiians were with her in Cannonball, ND, she said, and there were other Native Hawaiians who have been there and left.

Niheu said the native tribes from this country and elsewhere who have gathered to support the protest realize they’re facing similar problems.

“They are here to make a stand for their place and their homes,” she said. “It’s unprecedented. This is tremendous. It’s historical.”

She said the protest has been nonviolent and there have been about 60 arrests since April.

“People have been physically blocking construction,” she said.

American Indians, including the Standing Rock Sioux tribe in North Dakota, have opposed the development of the pipeline through tribal lands, saying it threatens water resources and would desecrate burial grounds.

Michael Kyser Jr. said he and some of the others in North Dakota were among the protesters atop Hawai`i island’s Mauna Kea opposing the development of the Thirty Meter Telescope. Some American Indians now protesting in North Dakota traveled to Hawai`i to support the TMT opponents, he said.

Temperatures have been in the 60s during the day and in the 40s at night and are expected to become colder as winter approaches.

Kyser, who has been at the encampment since Aug. 20, said he’s ready. “I’ve got my winter gear here,” he said.

Construction for now has been halted 20 miles on either side of the Missouri River but is continuing elsewhere near Bismarck, ND, where protesters are getting arrested, Kyser said.

The federal review stalling construction will likely be completed within weeks.

HAS THE U.S. OCCUPATION OF HAWAI`I WORKED?
HAWAI`I IN LATE STAGES OF ECOLOGICAL DESTRUCTION

By Koohan Paik, Nelson Ho and Tom Luebben - September 8, 2016


...While Hawai`i truly is (or was) one of Earth’s greatest natural treasures, its lands and waters have been ravaged for every possible commercial gain since the arrival of Capt. James Cook in 1778.

Its endemic forests have been largely destroyed for pastures and sugar cane plantations; its reefs and nearby pelagic waters depleted of fish.

The military destroyed one whole island (Kaho`olawe), and occupied and militarized 21 percent of the state with attendant contamination (over 400 toxic sites) and destruction.

Botanists, ornithologists, entomologists, evolutionary biologists and many other natural scientists have marveled at Hawaii’s unique biodiversity and evolutionary history.

When Cook arrived, Hawai`i had a 98 percent endemicity rate — almost every lifeform was unique. No one will ever know how many endemic species that inhabited Hawai`i in 1778 are now extinct, but we can be sure it is in the thousands.

Hawai`i is a bellwether of Earth’s future. Hawai`i is indeed “the ideal setting” (per the Star-Advertiser’s editorial) for a tough, depressing discussion of what is really happening in Hawai`i and on Earth — and not because of the thousands of hotel-rooms rented.

True, the nene goose is fine, the ‘alala (Hawaiian crow) is extinct in the wild but captive bred birds will be re-introduced, and silversword patches persist on Haleakala and Mauna Kea.

But consider the endemic birds, plants, and countless other known and unknown creatures driven to extinction by relentless economic exploitation and development. Hawaii leads the nation in threatened and endangered species, 437 officially....

...There is expansion, rather than restraint, on transoceanic and interisland agricultural trade that spreads invasive species.

The DLNR, and related federal and state agencies, have done a poor job of protecting Hawaii’s unique flora and fauna.

Irreplaceable koa forests are dying of old age because DLNR prioritizes livestock grazing. Mauna Kea’s endemic mamane forest continues to diminish because DLNR won’t eliminate invasive ungulates; the endemic palila bird, totally dependent on mamane, goes with it.

Put simply, this spectacular island archipelago is in the late stages of ecological destruction....

VICTORY AT STANDING ROCK























The US federal government on Friday temporarily blocked construction on part of a North Dakota oil pipeline, an unusual intervention in a prairie battle that has drawn thousands of Native Americans and activists to camp and demonstrate.

In announcing the pause, the government acknowledged complaints from the Standing Rock Sioux and other tribal nations that their concerns had not been fully heard before federal overseers approved a pipeline that the tribe said could damage their water supplies and ancestral cultural sites. 

The US Justice Department and other agencies called for “serious discussion on whether there should be nationwide reform with respect to considering tribes’ views on these types of infrastructure projects.”

The tribe in a statement called the federal order “a game changer.”

RALLY IN WAIKIKI TOMORROW FOR STANDING ROCK

When - Saturday, September 10, 2016 10 AM – 1 PM
Where - Waikiki Beach, Kalakaua Ave. (Duke Kahanamoku statue)

Justice for Native Peoples (JNP) is a group of Native Hawaiians and concerned Hawai`i residents who are taking to the streets on Saturday, September 10, 2016 from 10 AM to 1 PM to stand in solidarity with the Dakota and Lakota peoples of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe. Along with the hundreds of other Native Tribes and thousands of supporters, we oppose the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL).

In recent days, the peaceful protestors have been attacked by private security personnel hired by the Texas based DAPL owners. Images of attack dogs and pepper spray being used against the protestors, who include elders and children, have been documented by independent and corporate news agencies.

The proposed 1,168- mile long pipeline would carry 450,000 barrels of crude oil daily from North Dakota to Illinois, threatening over 200 water ways, most notably the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers, as well as the integrity of the region’s wildlife and land. The project has already bulldozed a large, well-known Native burial site, and is expected to desecrate more burials and sacred sites and using the power of eminent domain to steal lands.

For Native Hawaiians, the Standing Rock resistance, whose refrain is “Water is Life,” is significant, coming just one year after the Mauna Kea protests. Desecration of Hawaiian sacred sites and threats to fresh water sources from billion dollar projects like the Thirty- Meter Telescope (TMT), endear the Standing Rock protestors to the Hawaiian people. However, Hawaiian solidarity with them goes beyond cultural and environmental issues.

Native Hawaiian activist and a spokesperson for JNP, Healani Sonoda-Pale, said, “Native resistance is an ongoing, daily, centuries long process. Like our brothers and sisters on the continent, we Hawaiians are engaged in fighting to secure our rights to self- determination, something the Obama Administration is attempting to snuff out.”

Sonoda-Pale, alongside many individuals and Hawaiian groups, has been outspoken against the Obama Administration’s Department of Interior (DOI) proposed Rule. The DOI Rule process was invented by Obama’s Administration to circumvent the need for Congressional approval, thereby setting up Mr. Obama’s stated plans to Executive Order a quasi-federal recognition of the Hawaiian people. If enacted, these “changes” would effectively make Hawaiians into a Native American tribe.

“If Obama and his DOI force federal recognition down our throats, the 2 million acres of so-called ‘ceded lands’ would come under the control of the DOI,” said Sonoda-Pale. 

“That agency has already ignored the will of the Hawaiian people, who spoke out clearly against federal recognition during DOI hearings 2-years ago.” She went on to say, “Also, the DOI’s Bureau of Indian Affairs already mismanages 55 million acres held in trust for Native owners such as the Dakota and Lakota peoples. Now they want to be allowed to mis-manage the lands and assets of the Hawaiian people?”

RULE IT OUT - US DEPT OF INTERIOR FEDERAL RECOGNITION RULE FOR HAWAI`I


























Friday, September 02, 2016

ALERT! - ROBERT LINDSEYʻS SECRET RESIGNATION PLAN

Please forward this to all Hawaiians and our supporters.

We want to make you aware of a plan by Office of Hawaiian Affairs trustee Robert Lindsey to resign his OHA seat - but only after he wins re-election on November 8th.

In an email released by PBS Hawai`i, PBS confirmed that trustee Lindsey had cancelled his previously scheduled upcoming appearance on the PBS television show “Insights” due to “health concerns.”

This of course brings up the legitimate question of why he is running for re-election if his “health concerns” are that serious.

The answer lies in the replacement process upon an OHA trustee resignation.

In the event an OHA trustee seat becomes vacant due to resignation, it is the other trustees who select his or her replacement to fill that seat for the remainder of that term.

Robert Lindsey could even go so far as to "suggest" to the other trustees who his replacement could be.

In other words, he could dictate who the next Hawai`i island trustee should be, which would cancel out the votes of every single OHA voter.

However should the trustees be unable to reach a majority vote on their choice, then the appointment would fall to Hawai`i governor David Ige to make.

Sources have revealed that trustee Lindsey plans to resign his seat upon his re-election so the other OHA trustees, rather than the voters, can select his replacement.

This strategy reeks of more of OHAʻs typical “end-run” politics, exactly as they did with their failed attempts of the Akaka bill, Kau Inoa, Kana`iolowalu and Na`i Aupuni federal recognition schemes, that wasted $33 million dollars of Hawaiian beneficiary funds in the process.

Even more importantly, itʻs a blatant attempt to ignore your vote and manipulate the November 8th election.

Itʻs time to put a stop to this kind of treachery and deceitfulness and bring truth and transparency to OHAʻs leadership by electing Mililani Trask instead of Robert Lindsey on November 8th.

Please vote Mililani Trask for Hawai`i Island OHA trustee and say “NO!” to corruption and dishonesty at OHA.

Mahalo.

GRASSROOT INSTITUTE AFFIRMS RESULTS OF LAWSUIT DESPITE 9TH CIRCUIT COURT RULING

In the wake of the latest ruling from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, the Grassroot Institute of Hawai`i affirmed the overall results of the Akina v. State of Hawaii litigation. According to the Institute, the suit has been very successful in educating the public about the problems in the state's nation-building process.

With the help of the group Judicial Watch, a group of Native Hawaiians and other concerned citizens brought suit against the state for launching an unconstitutional election. The plaintiffs then sought a preliminary injunction that would halt any race-based vote. Because the ratification of the Native Hawaiian Constitution has been indefinitely suspended--and because Na`i Aupuni, one of the defendants, has been dissolved--the Ninth Circuit dismissed the plaintiff's motion for a preliminary injunction as moot.

"Overall, our litigation is achieving its objectives. Through the course of this lawsuit, we have seen the state cancel one unconstitutional election and postpone another one indefinitely," stated Keli`i Akina, Ph.D., President of the Grassroot Institute and a plaintiff in the lawsuit. "We have seen Na`i Aupuni--the organization that was created for the purpose of holding the election--shut down. And thanks to our efforts, more questions are being asked about how funds intended for the benefit of Native Hawaiians should be spent."

Dr. Akina continued: "At present, we are reviewing all of our options regarding the decision in order to determine what our next step will be. We cannot forget that during oral arguments, the defendants claimed that OHA has set aside money for a ratification vote. The state has not yet discarded its disastrous nation-building plans, but this suit has put them on notice. We will not allow an unconstitutional and divisive election to go forward, unchallenged, in Hawai`i," Dr. Akina concluded.

The Grassroot Institute of Hawai`i reaffirmed its commitment to defending the Constitution and expressing the concerns of Native Hawaiians opposed to the state's race-based nation-building process.
