8y 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.

What can I say, except that I am awestruck and overjoyed at the outpouring of aloha aina by the lahui rising... not only to protect Mauna Kea from desecration, but to draw the line saying, enough is enough; the usurperʻs criminal abuse of our country stops here. People are not only streaming to the mauna in-person, but are live-streaming in the spirit of solidarity from around the world. And the deep mana`o being shared in the many articles published and missives posted is astounding! This is kapu aloha rising.

Mahalo nui loa for the aloha aina who have stood steadfast or years, and to the younger generation of defenders who have stepped up to serve as visionaries and leaders of ku kia`i mauna. Mahalo nui to the families, the organizations, the communities, and friends who are standing for kuleana and pono.

As I said before, the world is waking up and beginning to see a new reality. The message that we have been sharing with the international community in places like the UN — Aunty Pilahiʻs message of addressing disputes and conflicts through aloha — is now manifesting in real time… the world is beginning to see kapu aloha in action... making our endeavor to free Hawaii all the more credible.  Hoala hou Hawai`i!

Almost lost in the amazing events of Ku Kia`i Mauna is our annual La Ho`iho`i Ea celebration!

It is tomorrow, July 28 from 11am to 6pm at Thomas Square in Honolulu. This very spot 176 years ago, that Admiral Thomas on behalf of Queen Victoria of the United Kingdom formally returned control of the Hawaiian Islands to King Kamehameha III. A few months later on November 28, 1843 the United Kingdom and the Kingdom of France signed a joint proclamation recognizing the Kingdom of the Hawaiian Islands as a sovereign country equal in stature to themselves.

Ua mau ke ea o ka `āina i ka pono. The sovereignty (life) of the land is perpetuated in righteousness.
