Does the Hawaiian Kingdom still exist?

YES! The truth is, despite outward appearances, according to established international standards, the lawful, sovereign entity -- the Hawaiian Kingdom — still exists!

Over the centuries, certain criteria developed regarding the nature and character of a nation-state*, so that once a nation-state has been lawfully established, it is extremely difficult to extinguish.

There are only two ways an established nation-state can be extinguished:
1) by Conquest: involving the military defeat and subjugation of its people, along with the physical seizure of its territory and assets by the victor; or
2) by Consent: the un-coerced, free-will choice of its people to merge their country’s sovereignty to another’s.

Even the unconditional surrender of Japan and Germany after World War II, did not extinguish their sovereignty. They became occupied states but still retained their national identity. They were still Japan and Germany and the occupying forces administered and enforced the laws of Japan and Germany respectively (though Germany was partitioned for 45 years).

Even the absorption of the Eastern European states by the Soviet Union after World War II did not extinguish their sovereignty. Despite decades of complete domination by the USSR during the “Cold War,” when the Soviet Union collapsed in the early 1990s states like Lithuania, Estonia, Latvia, Ukraine, Czechoslovakia, and so forth, reemerged as sovereign and independent countries in continuity.

In the case of Hawaii, after the illegal seizure and fake annexation, the political status of the Hawaiian people (referring to nationals, not aboriginals) remained intact and inviolate. Neither a vote nor plebiscite was ever conducted to gain the consent of the Hawaiian nationals to dissolve their country, the Hawaiian Kingdom. At no time did the Hawaiian Kingdom or Hawaiian nationals surrender sovereignty or consent to a merger with the United States. On the contrary, there was ardent and vociferous opposition to the 1893 seizure and to both U.S. efforts at annexation (1893 and 1897), as evidenced by the Kūʻē petitions, protests and resistance by Hawaiians.

The hearing of the case of Lance Larsen vs. the Hawaiian Kingdom at the Permanent Court of Arbitration at the Hague, Netherlands in 2000, positively confirmed the continued existence of the Hawaiian Kingdom. The acceptance of this case by this body of the World Court was based on the court’s determination that the Hawaiian Kingdom still exists and that both the Hawaiian Kingdom and the Hawaiian Kingdom national (Larsen), had standing in the World Court.

The fact-finding recommended after the proceedings at the Permanent Court of Arbitration, produced a study by professor of international law, Dr. Matthew Craven titled, The Continuity of the Hawaiian Kingdom. Craven confirmed that, according to the standards of international law, the Hawaiian Kingdom continues to exist. It did not expire. It survives even having been buried alive under the layers of U.S. deception and fraud. This has been confirmed numerous times by experts and institutions of international law.

* The word “state” in international legal terminology, refers to a nation-state, a recognized nation, a country.
