Canoes are not often thought of as a person or family member, but thatʻs only part of what we learned in our visit with Scotty Reis-Moniz of the Waimanalo Canoe Club.

KE AUPUNI UPDATE - JANUARY 2019

By 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.

Aloha Makahiki Hou!

• The Year of the Hawaiian Kingdom ... 

It’s good to learn about what happened in the past to better understand our present situation. But it’s now time to focus on the future. What do we envision a Free Hawaii to look like? We have to shift our attention to planning for and building toward the realization of a thriving, sovereign, independent nation. To help in this reset, we’re inviting everyone to make 2019 the Year of the Hawaiian Kingdom. It’s an opportunity to not only celebrate the fact that we are a nation in continuity, but we are a nation with a promising future. This reset is going to require imagination, dialog, strategizing, talent, resources, wisdom, optimism, courage and lots of Aloha ʻĀina. Be thinking about this and stay tuned…

• 126 Years Ago… 
…in total disregard for international laws, the United States landed troops in Honolulu to provide military support for a group of insurgents intent on deposing the Queen, seizing control of the government and handing the Hawaiian Kingdom over to the United States. The actions of those involved violated our country's sovereignty, hijacked the people’s land and other fundamental rights  It also set a precedent… a working template for international bullying and abuse by the United States and other big powers. Over the past 126 years, the US has used this template for regime change and repeated this pattern of bad behavior many times, destabilizing and overthrowing governments at the whim of American commercial and political interests. Greed and conquest are certainly not new, but what America did to the Hawaiian Islands — taking over a country while making it look consensual and legitimate… and getting away with it — led to increasingly egregious criminal behavior. An argument can be made that the United Statesʻ current arrogant habit of interfering, disrupting, invading and fostering of regime change had its genesis in the criminal acts the US committed against the Kingdom of the Hawaiian Islands 126 years ago.

• Has Anyone Seen any Mention of the 60th Anniversary of the Fake State?
Ten years ago, the State of Hawaii’s 50th Anniversary celebration fizzled. Our protests of the Fake State drew way more global attention than the stateʻs furtive jubilee. This year, the stateʻs 60th Anniversary is so far nowhere to be seen. Maybe it’s because state officials know it's a fake state and not something to celebrate. This would be a good time to ask state officials a few niggling questions like:

• When and how did the Hawaiian Kingdom become a possession of the United States? 

• Where is the treaty of annexation?
• Why wasn't “independence" on the ballot of the 1959 plebiscite?
• Who voted in the 1959 plebiscite?
• Was the 1959 plebiscite legitimate?
• How did Hawaiians become US citizens?
• Are all Hawaiians US citizens?
• Do Hawaiian nationals living in the Hawaiian Islands have rights?
• Is the state going to stop harassing Hawaiian nationals?

It would be interesting to get a state response to these questions.

OHA CFO - WE KEEP TRUSTEES IN THE DARK ABOUT LLCs


















Hawai`i Free Press - December 30, 2018 - By Andrew Walden

At the tail end of a 403 page document dump filed November 30, 2018 in Walden v Hiilei Aloha LLC, etal (with yours truly as plaintiff), attorneys attempting to conceal the financial information of OHA’s LLCs included this nugget from OHA’s Chief Financial Officer -

    DECLARATION OF DAVID LAEHA

    I, DAVID LAEHA, do hereby declare:

    1. I am an employee of the State of Hawaii and the Chief Financial Officer of the Office of Hawaiian Affairs ("OHA").

    2. I am also a Manager of Hi'ilei Aloha, LLC ("Hi'ilei"), Ho'okele Pono LLC (''Ho'okele Pono''), and Hi'ipaka LLC ("Hi'ipaka") (collectively, the "Respondents").

    3. This Declaration is in support of Respondents' Supplemental Briefing.

    4. As a matter of practice, the Managers restrict the Office of Hawaiian Affairs' ("OHA") access to the information of the Respondents so as to reserve managerial powers in the Managers, as contemplated in Respondents' operating agreements. Managers have explicitly limited OHA's access to information, and reserved their right to continue to do so….

Since Laeha and the other OHA-appointed “Managers” of OHA’s LLCs are top executives of OHA, “limit OHA’s access to information” in practice means OHA administration limits OHA Trustees' access to LLC information and will continue to do so.

Friend of the Court briefs supporting Walden's position were submitted to the Court November 2 by Tax Foundation Hawaii and the Civil Beat Law Center.

KE AUPUNI UPDATE - 2018 PROGRESS IN FOREIGN AFFAIRS





















By 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.

Hauoli Makahiki Hou!

Some Highlights of a Significant Year of Progress for the Hawaiian Kingdom 

The International Scene
The job of the Ministry of foreign Affairs for the Kingdom of the Hawaiian Islands, is to develop friendly relations with other countries; to inform the international community about the situation in the Hawaiian Islands; to seek support for our cause and find ways that we can help others. We have been doing this for nearly 20 years, concentrating the last 12 years on building a consistent presence at the UN.

This past year, we visited the UN in Geneva four times to represent the interests of the Hawaiian Kingdom. While there, we participated in more than a dozen panels (Dr. deZayas was a co-panelist on at least 10 of those events), discussing aspects of human rights and other matters pertaining to our situation in Hawaii as well as standing in solidarity with others like Alaska, West Papua, Trieste, Kashmir, Western Sahara, Mauritius, Sri Lanka, Myanmar and more.

We also visited the UN in New York four times this year to engage with special committees of the UN General Assembly, and with other agencies, individuals and non-governing organizations (NGOs). My New York home base is an office across the street from the UN Headquarters that is also home to a network of more than 500 NGOs. In New York we also have regular meetings with the ambassadors posted there from various countries — especially from the Pacific Islands — updating them on our plans and progress.

Building a consistent presence at the UN has been an arduous and costly undertaking, but it is beginning to produce results — like the deZayas memorandum — and the willingness of certain actors in the international community ready to assist us when the proper time comes.

Some Other Trips Made To Attend International Meetings  are -

• South Korea for a conference on peacemaking and reunification between North and South Korea (with follow-up meetings in New York);

• London for a Kashmiri-sponsored symposium on developing international media relations for countries seeking independence;

• Taiwan for the inaugural Global Indigenous Economics Council conference on cultural and economic sustainability;

• New York Global Inter-Faith Symposium on the role of religion and the work of religious organizations in international matters.

A lot is happening internationally. After 12 years of using friendly persuasion in various venues of the United Nations, with foreign ministers, diplomats and heads of states from numerous countries… and with exposure in the international press, people are beginning to understand our situation.  Our narrative of who we are, what really happened, what the current conditions are, and the goal to restore our kingdom, has begun to sink in. Basically, we have been able to convince people in the international community that: 1) the so-called “US State of Hawai`i" is a fraud; and 2) the Hawaiian Kingdom still exists and is on the rebound.

UN Resolutions
In 2018, two resolutions were drafted to be submitted to the UN General Assembly. We expect to persuade a significant majority of the UN member states to vote to pass these resolutions that will ultimately cause the UN to no longer recognize the U.S. claim to the Hawaiian Islands as legitimate.

An International Dispute
A number of other actions have been filed in international venues, including ones by Hawaiians to halt the flagrant violations of private property rights (original land titles) by foreigners in collusion with the courts of the fake State of Hawai`i. These challenges are being pursued as matters of international dispute, not within the municipal jurisdiction of the United States. Raising our complaints to the level of international dispute will confirm the Hawaiian Kingdom as a sovereign state and put a stop to the years of illegal land grabbing.

The deZayas Memorandum
The memorandum from UN official, Independent Expert Dr. Alfred M. deZayas, triggered much excitement and several actions are being taken, citing the memo about the misapplication of US/State of Hawai`i laws in the Hawaiian Islands. The memo fully supports our position that the Hawaiian Kingdom still exists and the US is obligated under international law to vacate its claims of sovereignty over the Hawaiian Islands. The deZayas memo has led to an increase in direct challenges mounted by Hawaiian nationals against the puppet governing system installed by the US. And another memo is on its way.

Security for Hawaiian Nationals
In the Hawaiian Kingdom, people have the right to travel and conduct business affairs in peace. But in the “State of Hawai`i” people who identify themselves as Hawaiian nationals living in the Hawaiian Kingdom (not US Citizens living in the State of Hawai`i) are being denied those most fundamental rights. Hawaiian nationals have been getting abused by a corrupt system bent on serving the interests of the fake state rather than the rights of the people… in particular, the rights of Hawaiian nationals. In 2018 plans were made to begin to alleviate this problem. It will be introduced in the first half of 2019.

Lā Ho`iho`i Ea
175th Anniversary Celebration
The celebration of Lā Ho`iho`i Ea — Sovereignty Restoration Day — on Sunday, July 29 was the best yet!  Maika`i loa! With the biggest crowd in modern times, we celebrated the historical event of Great Britainʻs return of control of the Hawaiian Islands to the proper ruler, King Kamehameha III.

King Kamehameha III Statue
On July 31, the actual 175th anniversary of Lā Ho`iho`i Ea — Sovereignty Restoration Day — the city unveiled and dedicated the newly commissioned statue of King Kamehameha III. There were great speeches showing we have come a long way. To have City and State officials recount the history and significance of Lā Ho`iho`i Ea and pay homage and respect to King Kamehameha III definitely raised public awareness of the true greatness of the Hawaiian Kingdom… This kind of change in perception and understanding will undoubtedly help in the advancement of the restoration of the Hawaiian Kingdom.

Lā Kūʻoko`a
This year, 2018 was the 175th anniversary of an historic moment…
On Nov. 28, 1843 Great Britain and France jointly recognized the Sandwich Islands (the Kingdom of the Hawaiian Islands) as a sovereign state — an equal among the major powers of the world. This singular event established our position as a sovereign independent country and provides the foundation for our assertion that the Hawaiian Kingdom was never extinguished and continues (though greatly impaired and concealed) to exist as a sovereign state in continuity.

These are just a few 2018 highlights in the reactivation of our country as a pre-existing sovereign state. Mahalo nui loa to the many, many more of our courageous Aloha `Åina who have been standing for our country every single day! For all those on social media, in the courts, in jail, on the front lines, researching, studying, speaking to your friends, speaking to your neighbors, to strangers, to the oppressors… giving of your mana`o, time, talents and resources, your prayers, and most of all… your ALOHA… to all of you… MAHALO NUI LOA!

I KŪ MAU MAU!  I KŪ WĀ!

JOHN “BUTCH” KA`APUIKI KEKAHU III
Koani Foundation Founder 

Butch was a valiant warrior for his people. He was a hero to the many whose lives he touched.

Being Kanaka Maoli piha, full blooded native Hawaiian, he helped lead the struggle for a Free Hawai`i on Kaua`i as well as throughout the islands.

Butch responded to the call of Queen Lili`uokalani, Hawai`i’s last reigning monarch over a century ago, when she called for Hawai`i Nationals to continue the quest for the recovery of the Hawaiian Kingdom, illegally taken over by the US in 1898.

Born in Hanapepe, Kaua`i in 1944 and raised by his parents, Rebecca Mikala Koani Kekahu and John Kekahu II, he spent part of his life in the Los Angeles area working as a musician and entertainer.

In 1971, after life-changing conversations with his uncles, Charles and Nathaniel Koani, Butch returned to Hawai`i.

From that point forward he became a native Hawaiian patriot, dedicated to fighting for native rights, homeland entitlements, equitable health care, and self-determination.

He was jailed in 1993 for his six-year occupation of Hawaiian Homelands in Anahola, Kaua`i.

Butch organized the 1998 and 2000 Aloha Marches in Washington, DC. 

On July 4, 2000, he also staged the Boston Ti Party, a modern day protest of taxation without representation.


These events highlighted native Hawaiian issues through broad national and international media coverage.

 




















Despite his lack of formal education, Butch lectured on a Free Hawai`i at the US Congress, governmental agencies and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Suffering the effects of advanced diabetes and heart disease, Butch’s determination carried him through numerous episodes of cardiac arrest. On numerous occasions he was rushed unconscious, by ambulance, to hospital emergency room resuscitation, only to return later to his home office to finish the days work.

He once survived cardiac death seven times in a single day, resuming Koani Foundation business in his hospital bed.

On December 27th, 2001 John “Butch” Kekahu III passed from this life.

Butch leaves a legacy as a strong leader for a Free Hawai`i as well as a beloved brother, friend and musician with a golden voice.

His tireless and courageous work, selfless attitude and most of all his huge heart will long be remembered.

US NOT EAGER TO PUSH FED WRECK FOR HAWAIIANS 





















Hawai`i Free Press - By Andrew Walden - December 22, 2018

US Rep. Tulsi Gabbard was the only member of Hawaii’s delegation to say that Congress should establish such federal recognition, though she didn’t respond to a question about whether she would be putting forward a bill.

“For generations, the Native Hawaiian community has fought for recognition equal to other native peoples across America, the first people of the lands that became our great nation,” said Gabbard in a statement. “Congress should establish federal recognition for Native Hawaiians so we can further enhance opportunity and access to education, job opportunities and health services, prioritize the Hawaiian language, and more.”

Other members of the delegation were more circumspect, stressing that at this juncture any decision about forming an independent government is best left up to Native Hawaiians. The issue of establishing a government- to-government relationship between the U.S. and Native Hawaiians, similar to those established with American Indian tribes, has long been divisive among Native Hawaiians, with some advocating for total independence from the U.S….

The debate came to a resting point of sorts when the U.S. Department of Interior finalized a rule in 2016 that sets out an administrative process for achieving such recognition. It’s up to Native Hawaiians to take the steps necessary to form a government and apply for recognition.

U.S. Sen. Brian Schatz said that it’s best to leave the issue in front of the Interior Department.

“While I thank the commission for its work and for recognizing the special legal and trust relationship between the Native Hawaiian community and the federal government, it is not necessary for Congress to act to re-establish a government-to-government relationship,” said Schatz by email. “The Department of the Interior has already set up a process for this, and it is up to the Native Hawaiian community to determine the reorganization of their own government.”

U.S. Sen. Mazie Hirono and Ed Case, who will be sworn into the U.S. House of Representatives in January, stressed their long-running support for Native Hawaiian self-governance but also said that the path to self-determination needs be determined by the Native Hawaiian community. Case said he supported completion of the process laid out by the Interior Department but would turn to the Hawaiian community for guidance on whether it made sense to introduce a bill in Congress….
