Federal Recognition, the Akaka bill, is not the answer, so what is?

Can the US really help create a bright future for the Hawaiian Nation? What solutions will benefit all residents of Hawai`i?

Hawaiians want and deserve freedom just as much as US citizens do.

Some say, “the illegal act of war that overthrew your Queen can’t be erased . . . like it or not, you’re all Americans now.”

But, every day we see people around the world fighting for, and winning back their native and national rights. Their quest, and ours are totally legitimate and very real.

Like everyone else, Hawai`i Nationals want four basic things –

FREEDOM The freedom to decide their own future for themselves. That “freedom” was taken away when the sovereign Nation of Hawai`i was overthrown in 1893. It was taken away again by illegal annexation to the United States in 1898. And, it was taken away a third time by the fake statehood vote in 1959.

According to international law, a new vote must to be taken that offers three options – 1) Independence, or 2) Free-Association or 3) Integration (nation within a nation.)

RIGHTS The rights of the independent Nation of Hawai`i were never relinquished. The destruction and denial of these rights must cease. Everyone who descends from citizens of the Hawaiian Nation prior to 1893, regardless of race, are entitled to these rights.

IDENTITY The political identity of Hawai`i Nationals must be acknowledged by the United States. They will decide their own future, without interference by the US. And, only those with any measure of indigenous blood may define who is native Hawaiian. A blood quantum imposed by the US is an unacceptable means to divide and conquer.

LAND BASE - Hawai`i Nationals love their country and lands just as much as US citizens love the US. Hawaiians want all their land back, not just some of it.
