HONORING SACRED PLACES - HAWAI`I ISLAND HOSTS WORLD PEACE & PRAYER DAY

Hawaii Tribune-Herald- June 19, 2017 - By Jeff Hansel

World Peace and Prayer Day has chosen Hawaii Island as the site of its main 2017 gathering that is running through tomorrow on Mauna Kea Beach Dr. in Kamuela.

The annual event’s website says “prayers will be offered for the heavens at Mauna Kea and for the highest fresh water at Lake Waiau, for the entire Earth through offerings to the sacred fire at Kilauea and for the ocean by the Hokule`a voyagers.”

Lakota Sioux Nation Chief Arvol Looking Horse, keeper of the sacred White Buffalo Woman pipe told the Tribune-Herald in a telephone interview that various countries ask for the event to visit each year.

The location is chosen through prayerful reflection. Participants are invited from “all faiths, nations, races, ages and genders who share concern for the welfare of humanity and the Earth to share in one prayer.” It has been held before in countries such as Australia, Japan and the United Kingdom.

Organizers say Mauna Kea (also known as Mauna a Wakea or the Mountain of the Sky Father) as a “sacred mountain holds mana – spiritual and divine powers – and is a focal point of spiritual and cultural significance to connect with the ancestors, energy and life forces, as well as the ancestral realms. Mauna a Wakea is a place to connect in union with the divine Aloha of the Creator.”

The Peace and Prayer Day gathering allows spiritual individuals to pray together, regardless of their personal faith, and seek healing for the earth....

“...We just hope the local people can come and join us,” Looking Horse said.

HAWAIIAN CULTURE IGNORED AS ALTARS & INVERTED FLAGS CREATE CONTROVERSY AT HILO COLLEGES

Honolulu Star-Advertiser - June 11, 2017 



Two Hilo colleges are divided over stone altars, or ahu, with inverted Hawaii flags constructed on campuses by students.


University of Hawai`i at Hilo and Hawai`i Community College have received numerous complaints over the ahu from students, faculty, community members and veterans who say they feel disrespected by the sight of the flags hanging upside-down, the Hawai`i Tribune-Herald reported today.


The students responsible for the structures are members of a statewide group known as Ahahui Hae Hawai`i, or the Hawaiian Flag Society.


Group members built them in response to student arrests on Mauna Kea two years ago and say the upside down flags are an internationally recognized symbol of a nation in distress, said group leader Kalaniakea Wilson.


UH Hilo administrators have no plans to remove the flag on an ahu, said Interim Executive Assistant to the Chancellor Gail Makuakane-Lundin.


Leaders at Hawaii Community College, located near UH Hilo, have chosen to remove the flags but not the stone altars after consulting with its Native Hawaiian council. The council determined that the flag is a form of free speech and its removal would not be offensive to Hawaiian culture.


The community college has removed more than a dozen flags from the ahu, each time notifying the student group “where (the flag) is, and that they are free to pick it up,” said Chancellor Rachel Solemsaas.


Solemsaas said that the college is looking to create a campus policy for free speeches exhibits such as the ahu in the future.

MORE CONFLICT OF INTEREST & HIDDEN SELF-DEALING AT OHA

Hawai`i News Now - June 6, 2017

The Office of Hawaiian Affairs took over the Makaweli Poi Mill on Kaua`i’s west side almost a decade ago, sinking nearly $1 million into the venture.

After years of losses, OHA is no longer involved but now says the mill is doing better.

"The mill has had challenges but it is back in the hands of the community and it is productive. And so this community resource has been preserved,” Mona Bernardino, chief operating officer of Hi`ilei Aloha, told the OHA board during a May 25 trustees meeting.

Hi`ilei is the nonprofit arm of OHA that managed its investment in the mill.

But the company that now operates the mill -- Aloha Aina Poi Company LLC -- was co-founded by an OHA employee. Davis Price, 37, was a manager and partner with Aloha Aina while he worked as an aide to an OHA trustee.

Some beneficiaries say that’s a conflict of interest.

“I'm just completely shocked and disappointed. I'm disappointed in the trustees. I'm disappointed in the agency. I'm disappointed most of all in the administration,” said Nanakuli homesteader Germaine Meyers.

Hawaiian royalty descendant Abigail Kawananakoa has filed an ethics complaint against Price, whom she says used his position at OHA to block an audit of the poi investment. She believes the audit would have uncovered the alleged conflict and other misuses of OHA funds.

“Davis knew or should have known that his self-dealing and failure to disclose his personal financial interest … raises significant ethical and legal concerns,” Kawananakoa wrote.

Hawai`i News Now has learned that a copy of Kawananakoa’s ethics complaint was forwarded to the state Attorney General's office, which is conducting a separate criminal investigation into OHA awards of contracts.

Price had no comment and OHA denied any conflict, saying it had nothing to do with Price's company being hired to run the mill.

"OHA is not involved in (the) management and operation of the Makaweli Poi Mill,” said OHA CEO Kamana'opono Crabbe.

Hi`ilei Aloha's Bernardino said OHA in 2012 transferred the poi mill to an organization called Supporting the Language of Kauai, which is a nonprofit arm of the Kawaikini Public Charter School.

SLK, in turn, employs Aloha Aina to run the mill. State business registration records show that Price and Kaina Makua created Aloha Aina in 2015 and both served as members and managers of the nonprofit. The poi produced by the mill is branded under the Aloha Aina name.

In a slide presentation to OHA board, Hi`ilei said it and OHA stated that it continued to issue grants to the poi mill while Price served as an officer of Aloha Aina. Three grants totaling $78,500 were issued to mill during the 2015-2016 period.

Aloha Aina’s 2017 filing with the state Department of Commerce and Consumer Affairs no longer lists Price as a company manager. 

According to Bernardino, the mill is doing better under new management and has expanded its product lines to supermarkets on Oahu.

"These guys are the guys helping us, making our people profitable, making other people successful in the communities,” added OHA trustee Dan Ahuna.

But some Kauai taro farmers on Kauai disagree.

John Aana, who co-founded the mill, said many Kaua`i farmers cut back on taro production after 2012 when OHA transferred the mill’s ownership to SLK and not to the mill's employees.

"We used to process 75 (80 to 90 pound) bags of taro a week … Their production now? I would say less than ten, maybe less than five,” said Aana. “OHA is not too popular with the taro farmers. … They pretty much put us back 20 years."

AN ISLAND IN THE PACIFIC - 
WAS JEFF SESSIONS RIGHT?

They also overlooked one crucial thing: he had a point.

His misunderstanding of the basic structure of our government, real or fabricated for media consumption, was ridiculous at best. His comments, however, reflected an instinct shared by many advocates for Hawaiian sovereignty: that the United States’ continued claim to “an island in the Pacific,” obtained through the illegal overthrow of a peaceful monarchy, smacks of empire and deserves rethinking.

The United States’ occupation of Hawai`i has been disastrous from the start. Engineered by White American sugar plantation owners seeking to remove import taxes on their product, the 1893 overthrow wrested power from Queen Lili`uokalani, who surrendered in order to avoid violence against her people.

Instead of admonishing the sugar barons for their scare tactics, Congress followed up with a joint resolution proclaiming the annexation of Hawai`i, an act ordinarily requiring a treaty with a sovereign nation such as the Hawaiian Kingdom.

Over Native Hawaiians’ unwavering objections to the United States’ takeover, in 1959, Congress recognized the island nation as the 50th state, a move that many Hawaiians hoped would grant them more autonomy. In 1993, Congress issued another joint resolution concerning the islands, this time apologizing for the illegal overthrow of the kingdom.

Despite this formal recognition of the illegal foundation for Hawaiian statehood, the U.S. government has not made any move to restore the island to its rightful owners, the Native Hawaiians. Instead, it has reneged on many of its promises, including one that Native Hawaiians would have access to the university built on their land.

Contrary to this guarantee, Native Hawaiians make up a fraction (13.8 percent) of the university’s students and even fewer of its faculty (6.3 percent), with Native Hawaiian studies relegated primarily to specialized centers instead of imbuing the education of all the students occupying the land.

Last year, the Department of the Interior offered Native Hawaiians an opportunity to craft a vision of their relationship with the US government, presumably modeled after existing arrangements with indigenous tribes, who have also suffered from the occupation of their land and erasure of their culture through racist stereotyping, commodification, and laws that erode their basic rights. The endeavor to respond to the department’s request led to deep divides within the community, with many members objecting to collusion or compromise with the occupying power.

In light of this troubled history, instead of correcting Sessions’ misguided criticism of separation of powers, we should take this opportunity to reevaluate the United States’ claim over Hawai`i. Instead of asking why a judge in the Pacific can tell the President what he can or cannot do, we should be asking why a country in North America can tell the indigenous people of an island in the Pacific how to run their schools and courts.

Federal policies are responsible for the fact that an elementary school with a thriving organic garden must serve their students tater tots and corn dogs in the cafeteria while donating their fresh vegetables to restaurants. American occupiers criminalized the Hawaiian language in 1896, leaving most Hawaiians unable to speak it today, despite the law’s repeal in 1965.

The dispossession of Native Hawaiian land and the imposed western ideal of private ownership make Native Hawaiians overrepresented in the islands’ substantial homeless population. United States tourism trivializes Hawaiian cultural traditions, and the United States military presence makes Hawaii a vulnerable target, endangering the lives of all of its residents.

The United States’ strong military interests in this “island in the Pacific” make it unlikely that it will relinquish the islands any time soon, if ever. Its continued investment in and exploitation of the islands, however, comes with some costs. One of those costs is the inclusion of diverse perspectives in the federal bench, informed by a history of witnessing the federal government engage, at times, in unlawful and unconstitutional acts.

If Jeff Sessions truly believes that judges in the federal District of Hawai`i have no proper role in the federal judiciary, perhaps he should consider offering to give Hawai`i back to the Native Hawaiians in return for their exit from the federal system. At this particular point in history, they are more likely than ever to agree to the exchange.
