A MAUNA KEA MESSAGE FROM PUA CASE

























June 21 is a day for Solstice Ceremonies and is very significant as we all know and recognize to many peoples around the world. 

What an auspicious day to be assigned to come together for Mauna Kea and in that spirit we ask for prayers and support as we present the oral arguments addressing the decision of the Board of Land and Natural Resources to grant the construction permit to build the 18 story Thirty Meter Telescope on the Northern Plateau of the mountain following the second contested case hearing. 

Please stand with us for Mauna Kea from where ever you are. Mauna Kea is sacred and we are still here! 

We are thankful and all in this together. #Forthemountains #Forthesea #Forthelands #Forthewaters #Forusall #ProtectMaunaKea

KAMEHAMEHA III - KAUIKEAOULI TO STAND TALL AT THOMAS SQUARE IN HONOLULU

















 




Hawai`i News Now - June 14, 2018

Amid the dust and grime of a California foundry sits the likeness of King Kamehameha III, Kauikeaouli.

An unlikely place to find Hawai`i’s longest reigning monarch, but there, he is of king-sized proportion.

As part of the City’s plans to improve Thomas Square, Hawai`i’s oldest park, an artist was commissioned to sculpt a statue of Kamehameha III to commemorate the monarch’s historical connection to the area.

“It started with a call and we received over 80 applicants from all over the country,” Tory Laitila, the Registrar of Honolulu Mayor’s Office of Culture and Arts said. 

Thomas Jay Warren, a sculptor from Oregon, was chosen to craft the $250,000 bronze statue.

“The total span of the project is going to 11 months, from the time I started enlarging, from the decision that was created by the commission, 11 months from that enlargement to 12 feet, to finishing the casting, to delivering and installing it in Honolulu,” Warren said.

Island News recently got a glimpse of the statue when Laitila traveled to Berkeley to check on the progress of the project.

Kauikeaouli will stand at 12-feet tall but laid in nearly two dozen newly cast pieces across the foundry that day. The characters - K III - can be seen etched onto his collar alongside a kalo. The monarch’s hair - short, wavy, and slightly side-swept.

A sole flag pole donning only the hae Hawai`i, or Hawaiian flag, will accompany Kauikeaouli upon a pedestal near the center of Thomas Square when the statue is installed.

The statue will be shipped to Honolulu in July ahead of La Ho`iho`i Ea, Sovereignty Restoration Day.

“Restoration Day this year is the 175th anniversary of the event so there’ll be a very large commemoration event at the park,” Laitila said. “There are many people looking forward to actual restoration day this year as well as the dedication of the sculpture.”

La Ho`iho`i Ea began in 1843 under Kamehameha III after rogue agents of the British Crown seized control of the government by order of British Lord George Paulette. 

During this time, all Hawaiian flags were lowered and burned. Months later, Queen Victoria sent Admiral Richard Thomas to Hawai`i to remove Paulette and reinstate the Hawaiian Kingdom.

Following the reinstatement of the Kingdom, a flag ceremony was held in Thomas Square where the Union Jack was lowered and the Hawaiian flag raised. This ceremony is where Kamehameha III spoke the popular proclamation, “Ua mau ke ea o ka ‘aina i ka pono,” loosely translated as “the sovereignty of Hawai`i is restored by righteousness.”

The park’s surrounding streets also acknowledge the Kingdom’s history with Britain. Beretania Street, on the mauka-side of the park, means Britain in the Hawaiian language and Victoria Street, on the Diamond Head side, pays tribute to Queen Victoria.

And though he’s been sculpting for over three decades, Warren is still moved by the opportunity to create memorials featuring persons of cultural significance. Those feelings resonated in the words he spoke of Kauikeaouli.

“He managed to get the Kingdom of Hawai`i back from the British without firing a single shot and that to me is an amazing piece of diplomacy,” Warren said. “I research my subjects and the history, I read about him and we could use more people in public service like he was for his people.”

WHO WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR GETTING THE UNITED NATIONS MEMO WRITTEN?


Nobel Peace Prize Nominee & Koani Foundation Director Leon Siu, left 
& United Nations Official Dr. Alfred de Zayas, right at the UN in Geneva

Read The Entire Memo HERE

Contrary to what some of you may have heard or been told, the person responsible for getting the United Nations memo written is Koani Foundation Director, Nobel Peace Prize Nominee and Hawaiian Kingdom Minister of Foreign Affairs, His Excellency, Leon Kaulahao Siu. 

The memo was written by independent expert Dr. Alfred de Zayas, an important high official at the United Nations in Geneva, Switzerland.

This remarkable memo affirms two things - first, that the Hawaiian Kingdom is currently under an illegal occupation by the United States and second, that Hawaiian Kingdom law, rather than US domestic law must be administered in Hawai`i by the US occupier.

Leon Siu has labored for over twelve years behind the scenes at the United Nations in New York city and nine years in Gneeva helping to educate diplomats, experts like Dr. de Zayas and the international press about the true political status of Hawai`i

Itʻs because of his years of hard work at the UN in both Geneva and New York city as well as other international venues that this memo came to be.

200-YEAR-OLD KŪ RETURNS TO HAWAI`I


































San Francisco Chronicle - May 23, 2018

A 200-year-old carving of the war god Ku has returned home to Hawai`i after spending untold years abroad and in the hands of private collectors.

Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff and his wife, Lynne, purchased the rare piece at a November auction at Christie’s in Paris, paying more than $7 million for the figure, which is less than 2 feet tall.

The San Francisco couple then donated the piece to the Bishop Museum in Honolulu, which announced the acquisition this week.

“We felt strongly that this ki`i (Hawaiian for image) belonged in Hawai`i for the education and benefit of its people,” Marc Benioff said.

The carving, made sometime between 1780 and 1819, had been in the collection of Claude Vérité, a Paris art dealer, who apparently acquired it in 1940. It’s unclear where the carving was before that.

Similar pieces are found only in museums, said Susan Kloman, head of African and Oceanic Art at Christie’s, in a description of the piece prior to the auction. She described the carving as “an incredible discovery.”

“When I first saw this figure I was astonished — really speechless,” she said. “We couldn’t imagine that such a work could still exist in a private collection.”

Benioff said he learned of the piece only a day before the auction, when Danny Akaka Jr., Hawaiian cultural practitioner and Bishop Museum board member, called to ask for the billionaire’s help.

The carving was probably part of a temple on the Big Island, where King Kamehameha I prayed to Ku to unify the Hawaiian islands, Benioff said. Missionaries presumably boxed it up along with other sacred Hawaiian relics and sent it to Europe.

It felt like a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to return something like this to its home, Benioff added.

“It was either going to go back into someone’s living room for another 200 years,” he said, “or it was going to go back to Hawai`i and be on display for the Hawaiian people.”

Benioff, who owns an estate in Hawai`i, said he had to beat out a “significant bidder,” to get the item.

“It’s a spiritual item,” he said. “It’s not really something that should be held to help the power of one person.”

The carving was returned to the islands about a month ago — the land-eater idol arriving about a week before the eruption of the Kilauea volcano — the timing of which was not lost on Benioff....
