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.

• 203rd Birthday of Kauikeaouli
Today, August 11 is the 203rd birthday of Kauikeaouli, King Kamehameha III, the amazing, enlightened ruler of the Hawaiian Islands. He presided over some of the most important events in the history of the Hawaiian Kingdom. Kamehameha III transformed his Kingdom into being not only on an equal footing to the leading sovereign nations of the world, but a significant contributor to the advancement of benevolent governance.

Hauoli Lā Hanau Kamehameha Ekolu, Mo`i.

• Mauna Kea
Itʻs not simply about the telescope. Itʻs about saying enough is enough. For the past 150 years Hawaiians have seen our lands carved away to be used by foreign business interests under the guise of “progress.” Hawaiians have been not only pushed into corners, but many have been forced completely outside the room. Kapu Aloha is the way to restore pono. Onipa`a!

• 60th Anniversary of the Fake State
On August 21 the Fake State of Hawai`i will turn 60 years old. The 3rd Friday of every August was designated “Statehood Day” to create a 3-day weekend to accommodate the delirium of the stateʻs biggest celebration. This year, Friday, August 16 is Statehood Day. It will probably be “celebrated” as it has been for years... with profound indifference and deafening silence.

The lack of enthusiasm for “Statehood Day” indicates people donʻt see anything to celebrate. Perhaps many have heard of the shameful, illegal origins of the state, or see Hawaiians being abused by the system, or just have the feeling that something is not right. Even the state lays low on its own birthday, downplaying it so much as if theyʻre trying to hide something.

This year, with the TMT debacle, we can add extreme embarrassment to the reason the state is dodging the event.

The governorʻs emergency proclamation; mobilizing the sheriffʻs department, police officers from 3 counties, the DLNR enforcement unit and the Hawai`i National Guard, equipped with  a full complement of riot gear, including vehicles, tear gas and sophisticated crowd-control weapons... was, to say the least... overkill.  And what for? To arrest 38 kupuna protecting the mauna by sitting in peaceful defiance under a tent in the middle of the access road.

No wonder no one wants to “celebrate” statehood... not when it shows its true colors like this and people everywhere can see how the state has been operating. The tipping point is coming soon!

Kū`e! Kū Kia`i Mauna! Kapu Aloha!

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