Congratulations on your progress for an independent nation! Growing up in Hawai'i, my fondest memories came from my frequent hunting trips to Molokai and the warm feelings of friendliness I experienced there. I sincerely wish, this movement for independence restores the feeling of family and aloha '\m/' often lost for a lost people.
much love and aloha, ||

At this point I can neither endorse nor condemn the sovreignty movement, this WWW service is rather helpful. I have become very interested in the Hawai`ian language and culture, and would relish the chance to study it in more depth.
Great job! I especially liked the inclusion of the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights.

The European conquest of the colored peoples of the world is one of the greatest Evils possible for intelligent life forms. I wish your peopleand all indigenous peoples the best in our fight for true freedom fromthe powers of imperialism, racism, and greed. It is time for reconciliationand time for this U.S. Government and other oppressive governments to\give back to the people what they so recently stole!
I was in Oahu in april of 94' at which time I learned aboutthe movement of Native Hawaiins to gain independence from the facist white regime.
I instantly understood the cause and the need for its success by any means.I feel that if the oppressors of the world do not realize this soonthese tyrants will fall including those in the U.S. I couldgo on forever but I must get back to work!
P.S. I would like to be kept posted on your progress.Your struggle is so common around the world!Good Journey!

Mahalo for creation of this server, it is of interest to me as I have been a frequent visitor to Hawai'i for over 25 years ( the "real" Hawai'i and not the manufactured one).
Good luck and keep up the good work.
Thank you for informing me about the background of the independence movement. As a haole who loves Hawai'i, it's interesting to read the truth about what happened so long ago.
The Hawaiian sovreignty is a great cause and I supportit fully. As a former resident of Hawaii I am with themovement one hundred percent.

Concerned native hawaiian now living in the mainland and would like to network with other native hawaiians anywhere in the world in order to maintain our connectiveness. Have relocated here as the public schools are superior to both public and private schools in the islands. We continue our cultural practices here as well as gain fruitful academic pursuits without the constant oppressive harrassment we have endured as native hawaiians on the homelands and within the outer communities of Hawai'i. We are hopeful of continued personal growth and spiritual evolution such that we can continue to contribute more fully toward effectuating positive economic and social change for native hawaiians. Please feel free to write me as I am indeed anxious to move forward in establishing communication on current issues and more importantly finding resolve to them with all the resources now available throughout the world at our finger tips...

My mother's family lost all of its property on Hilton Head Island, SC, during the Civil War, where the Harbor Town golf course now sits. Deeds were lost when Sherman torched Beaufort. So, while I am very glad that the South lost the war and that much progess has been made racially and economically since then, when I first heard about the Hawaiian sovereignty movement my first reaction was to say to myself, "Now, where did I put that Confedereate money?"
:^) Still, while I may not agree w/ all of your goals, I think that the issues you raise are worthy of attention and some should be acted upon immediately. Cheers! Keep me in touch! -- An Hawaii lover, Mobs

It was wonderful to see a home page from the nation of my birth. I miss the wonderful things that are found in the islands. Here on the Mainland, people look at me and say that I am an Asian American..but in reality my heart belongs to the islands and I tell them that I am a Pacific Islander who just happens to have ancestors from Japan.
I had no idea this was going on in Hawai'i now, although I have wondered if it was a legitimate action when Hawai'i became a state. Please keep me up to date on your progress.

Being originally from Mililani, I wish to congratulate you on your recentachievements. Growing up, I remember the struggles of the native hawaiiansfrom the Sand Island to the Eva beach squatters. I have lived on themainland now for several years for both school and work. Living now in a small predominately hoale town, I can somewhat imagine the generations offrustrations the native hawaiians must feel from both mainlanders and residents.
I am hoping to return someday and anticipating the see the recent changes.If I may offer one suggestion, the Hawaiian people are unique; Citizenshipin the new Hawaiian Nation for residents (non-hawaiian blood) should be onthe line of native american citizenship in the U.S. The Nation of Hawai'i should be made for, made by, governed by the native hawaiians. Native hawaiians carry a distinct heritage which should be honored by both foreigners and residents alike.
It is my wish to be a part of your new Nation and any help or assistance fromme will be given willingly.
May your Honor, Pride, and Glory

I have been a student of Hawaii's history for some time and agree with the conclusion that the islands were seized improperly.
One has to look at the possible cosequences of that not having happened to appreciate the benifits that have been reaped.
Russia, England, Japan and other nations coveted the Hawaiian islands strategic position. Examine the economics of other islands in the Pacific and the Carribean to see what fate has spared the natives of your wonderful islands. Haiti is an example of what Hawaii could become.
I have always had the feeling that I was in a foreign country the numerous times I have visited, as far back as 1959, but with the exception thatthe island was clean, unlike the trash that lines the roads in the British Virgin Islands, and that the ecomomy was strong with low unemployment.But best of all that the culture of the natives had been preserved better than anywhere I had ever visited.
I apologize for the typos, I usualy depend on spellchecker. I wish you the best for Hawaii, and the people who live on those islands. Aloha
Great to find this! I especially enjoyed Lynton Dove White's tour of the canoe plants. Well done; a great use of the Web to provide information. And great to see it coming out of Hana! I was the first Kipahulu District Ranger of Haleakala National Park and lived about 3 years in Heavenly Hana. Fondest period in my life. Great people! Keep up the good work.
Don't the descendants of the missionaries own most of theland in Hawai'i? Considering what it has been worth tothem, they might not give it up that easily, and considering they are protected currently under U.S. law,they might not want to risk it all by leaving the Union.I wish you all the best.

All peoples should have the right to determine their destiny. I am involved with the Scottish National Party which seeks to seperate Scotland from Great Britain, so I know the felling of fighting against a majority that is also a tyranny. Good Luck in your cause!
I fully support your organization. Hawaii, and all other areas of the world, have an inalienable right to self-government and self-determination. This is one of the principles on which the United States was founded, and the US committed a horrific injustice when it denied this right to your nation. I wish you success.
Excellent design and layout. Rich with information, especiallythe full text of primary source material.

Very interesting - I have never heard of your plans to free Hawaii. I visited Hawaii in 1992 & could never understand how/why the U.S. was not called to be accountable for its takeover actions.
David T. Murray
I've read about the Hawaiian takeover in Aloha Airlines magazines, but have seen little other information outsideof that. This site provides clear position.
As (currently fellow) US citizen I wonder whether there is an acceptable "Middle Ground" to separation from US to acheive national soveriegnty. As Europe combines a commonmarket (while fighting national battles) and America isgetting together in NAFTA, and Asia is looking toward economic consolidation, would Hawaii's separation from US be risky for economic survival?
I've read how the transition from Kingdom to Territory was wrong, but I do not understand how the subsequent vote forstatehood is invalid or immoral. It was held generationsafter the takeover. I hope to learn your views on this matter through this URL.

Interesting stuff! I was surprised that it has received solittle press coverage out here in the East. I passed theURL on to a friend in the US Virgin Islands.

I had an opportunity to spend 6 weeks in Hawaii while my wifewas on assignment in Oahu. During this time I was free to explore the culture and beauty of the various islands. From backpacking through Volcanoes National Park to doing volunteerwork with the RED CROSS when INIKI struck Kauai. It was a memorable experience which I will carry with me for the rest of my life. Although, I'd often wonder what the islands would look like if still in their pristine form. Before nations ripped Her apart in the struggle to control the Pacific. Before the mega-resorts and huge land fills, before the water pollution and large cities. To be able to stand on a beautiful white sand beach and watch the humpback whales breach in the channel will take your breath away. I wish there was a way to return Hawaii to its native people and to the raw beauty it oncewas. I wish you the best in your endevors, may you one day see success. Mahalo for sharing your beautiful islands withmy wife and I.

Having done my history thesis on the annexation of Hawaii, I have always thought the people of Hawaii--Hawaiians--have received a very raw deal. What are the chances oftrue Hawaiian Independence, Hawaiian Sovereignty? Should itbe put on the ballot for a referendum, or is it purely fortrue Hawaiians to decide? What about making sure that existing ing laws be used to treat Hawaiians fairly? I am interestedin learning more about your movement.

I first learned about the sovereignty movement reading an interview with Keiko Bonk prior to the elections. At the time I was planning to buy land and spend my life surfing & windsurfing in your paradise. After learning the truth about Hawai'ian "statehood", I realized that it would be wrong for me to "own" your land. I believe that if there were more publicity on the mainland, it would be helpful to sway public opinion.( nobody that I have spoken to here has any knowledge of the truth, though the majority agree with me that you deserve soverignty once they have been educated) Good luck in the election, Aloha, Stein

As an activist in various union and peace & justice strugglesin the State of Washington, as well as doing grass rootsorganizing to develop a grassroots (as opposed to corporate)vision of what the "Info Highway" will be, I wanted tolearn more about Hawai'i's struggle for sovereignty.I'd like to know what I can do as a "responsible" touristwho'd like to visit the last week of July 1995. Are thereSovereignty activists who would provide B&B-like accomodation?(At least my $$$ would be going to a better place.)Or any other suggestions you might have for a state-sidetraveller to Hawai'i?I'll be bringing my 13-year old daughter, who I am tryingto teach respect for other cultures and self-determination.We had planned to do many day hikesWhat else do you suggest that I visit or involve her withduring our week stay?Thanks for the tremendous effort you've done on the Nation of Hawai'i WWW pages.

I recently attended the Hawaiian sovreignty symposium at Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut. I was very interested in learning more about Hawai'i. I am Anishinabe (Native of mainland!) from Wisconsin originally, but I go to school here at Dartmouth. Many of my friends, including my man, are Kanaka Maoli since they are considered Native Americans at Dartmouth. I vistited my boyfriend last summer, and I loved your land. His father lives in Palolo Valley, so I visited there. He lives with his mother in Wailuku, so I stayed there. I went to Hana, and I loved it. Keep fighting for it, its worth the pain, time, and effort and it is something your children will never forget. When you get control of your land always remember that your grandparents (ancestors) did not loan you the land, you are borrowing it from your grandchildren. So clean it up and take care of it. Your people, language, and dances are beautiful and I hope you keep them all alive. Ok, ive taken up enough space here so A hui ho

This is an interesting development in the history of Hawai'i!My wife and I have considered Hawaii our spiritual home sincewe first visited Oahu in 1969 while I was on R & R from VietNam. We lived in Kailua ("Enchanted Lakes") from 1978 to 1981 and left only because the U. S. Marine Corps ordered me to North Carolina. We visit almost every year and intend toreturn to Hawaii to live when I finsih my doctorate. Can a Haole become part of the restored nation of Hawai'i ? or iscitizenship limited to descendants of the original Hawaiianpeople?

I was very interested to find this. I lived on Maui for 12 years and grew up loving the islands. What has been done to the islands in support of the tourism industry horrifies me everytime i return to visit my family in the islands. It is my hope that maybe someday sovereingty will be restored and some rectification of the islands will be able to happen.

It is an experience we will always feel blessed for being able to experience. ALOHA to the people of Hawaii.Garry Lee
Very interesting -- I just started to learn about Hawai'issoverignity and it's very intriguing.
I can't believe I haven't read anything in the newspaper about this...
I fully support the rights of people to make their own laws and govern themselves. The federal govenrment has faroverstepped it's bounds as established by the constitution,and as such must either amend it's ways or let states withdraw from the union.

I found your page very informative and I feel as thoughI understand the issues much better now and have a better appreciattion foryour endeavors. Good luck.
Welcome to the Internet. Your page is great.
I have enjoyed reading about the history of the annexation of Hawaii, which was something passed over in just about every history book I have ever read. It is nice to know that on occasion Congress does some good, even if it is 100 years too late.
As a native of the (non-sovereign) Catalan nation, I cangreatly sympathize with your cause, and I make it mine, too.

Enjoyed the Page/presentation - I think I like the general theme of your movement, but I need more information in order to form a better understanding. In any event, I usually support ALL movements that seek to provide more self-determination and thereby more empowerment for any group of people. I'm careful though to first learn who is behind it, and to make sure that their motives are the same as the organizations.
John R. Bouffard
Yours is one of the most professionally executed pages I have ever encountered. Great job!
I wish more people would agree Hawaii should be freed. Yet at election year, Sen. Dan Braggs only about how much Federal money he brings home to Hawaii each year. Why is he so popular? Only a few must realize that entrapment. And what can be done for those brave ones unlawfully shipped to and imprisoned in Colorado? More people need to know about these important issues, I'm glad to see your organization here.

Great pages! Hawaii is incredible!
How do you plan to reconcile "secession" (US Constitutional point of view) with your claim to "restoration" of illegal annexation? Are you assuming a restoration by the US Senate (as arbiters of treaties) or some other constitutional means? I am sympathetic to your stand but am still unsure by what means you can disengage from statehood.And of course I'm sure everyone recognizes the potential for all American indigenous peoples.

Is independence (ie succsesion) really in the best interest of the people of Hawai`i ? I am REALLY asking this question. This is not retorical. If Hawai`i became independant tomorrow, would it's people be better off?

I would also be interested in your version of how and whyHawai'i came to be a protectorate and a state of the U.S.,i.e. the behind the scenes machinations, the politics, etc.Good luck with your endeavors.

As a flame held above a just-extinguished candle will reignite it, so can the story that was interrupted go on. There is much to do, and much of it has already been done.
I can undertand your point of view(s)but I am little unclear about something.Does this mean that you do not want meas tourist? I love your land, but only canvisit maybe once a year, and that meansthe North Shore in December. So do I stay home or become one of manytourists?

First, having read a brief (~20 pages) overview of the history of the Islands before visiting Kauai in May, andhaving perused your web-page (after it was forwarded to meby an acquaintence from Hawaii), I have to say I am apalledby the social and economic injustice done to your culture.What was done was clearly wrong, clearly illegal, and I haveto agree that something should be done about it.
The maid of honor at my upcoming marital ceremony isthrilled that there is a large Hawaii-Nation movement.I am not convinced, however, that forming a new nation iseither an appropriate response in the face of aconcilliatory federal government or a wise endeavor giventhe current social and economic conditions of both theHawaiian Islands and the world at large.
It is true that, given a pre-existent movement, now is thetime to prepare for victory. But victory cannot be the endof vigilance, and for your present circumstance it hashardly begun.
Let me step back.
There has always been a strong independent spirit inAmericans -- Hawaiian or not, and there is a long standingtradition of an unquiet truce between the states and thefederal government.
We are seeing, now -- as the Cold War mentality recedes,the issue of state sovereignty regain center stage. New-age Republicanism notwithstanding, "block grants" and theelimination of department after department from the federalgovernment herald a transition of power away from thefederal government that has prevented you from pursuingyour own sovereignty.
That's the good news. The bad news is what kinds of thingsare likely to replace it. Anyone who watched the eightiessaw the transformation from the political centeredUS-Russian conflict to the economic centered US-Japanconflict. In an absence of power, the beast that threatensto rear its ugly behind is the very beast that threatenedHawaii in the first place -- economic colonization andmercantilism!
I would urge you to consider what the future of Hawaii'seconomy is likely to be given the sorts of big businessinterests that are gaining in importance. I fear a repeatof the disaster that brought us to this point in the firstplace.
Additionally, it has been argued by historians that one ofthe most important reasons for the success of the AmericanRevolution was the participation of our forefathers inself-rule prior to King George III. By becoming a leaderin one of the most divisive issues of the future of Hawaii,by leading a path away from dependence (as you state inyour policy documents) and towards economic independence(in otherwords, frankly, by becoming more pro-active andtaking those ideas off paper and implementing them), youlearn to be the leaders you will have to be -- whetherthere exists a free, recognized Hawaiian Nation in yourlifetimes or not.
As an isolated set of Islands with both limited resourcesand a self-limit on your utilization thereof (for whichthis country boy approves) your biggest challenge will bethe maintenance of a healthy economy in a world whereover-utilization threatens so many other nations.Regardless of your characterization of domination,exploitation and exhaustion as "Western", it isIsland-Nations such as Taiwan (from whence my fiancee'hails) that are currently suffering devastatingenvironmental collapse.
I know you view this as seriously as I do given that two ofyour three statements deal with the issue. Still, I findso much more cogent thought on the rightness of politicalindependence that I fear that economic independence mighttake second fiddle. The characterization that politicalindependence is the first step to economic independence istroublesome at best -- first, because political independenceis not a prerequisite to either leadership or the formationof economic policy, and second because politicalindependence is statistically more likely to bring economicdependence than not.
I urge you to consider these issues as I wish you to succeedprobably just as much as you do. We both want a Hawaii thatretains its nature of a paradise. When I visit Kauai next,were you to give me permission so to do, I would like tohike the trails of the Na Pali without the "Aloha" of theregional helicopter fleet circling overhead.

I'm just learning how to access and use WWW. I'm finding it a great way to learn about the islands, culture, etc. My Hawaiian family has come to visit me every year since I've found them and they will be in this Thursday (6/28/95) for another visit.

Very interesting! I am interested in learning more of the movement of Hawaiian to declare their independence. Personally, I am ambivalent about the prospect. Although I recognize the right of the native population to assert their independence I believe that this movement is partially rooted in a desire to return to some of the cultural roots formerly enjoyed. This, I fear, might result in the exclusion of non-natives from some or many of the rights now enjoyed due to American statehood. I have thoroughly enjoyed your site and wish you continued success on the net.

I really didn't get a change to read everything, but as a person with a deep interest in history and the rights of indigenous peoples, I thought this presentation was very insightful. It was also very thoughtful inasmuch as the local PBS station recently rebroadcast "Riders of the Wind" about the travels and history of Polynesia/Polynesians and the peoples of Tahiti, Hawaii, New Zealand, etc.

I am aware, though, that the UStreated many people unfiarly, or even savagely. There are many peoplehere who worry about the growing power of the federal government. SoI wish you well in your path you have chosen, and hope to visit somedaywhether or not you are a state or independant nation at that time.

I would like to know more about the Native situation in Hawaii. I was there this past Spring, and noticed some tension between "locals" and "mainlanders".

I am an ardent monarchist and commend the efforts of the Nation of Hawaii to restore what has been unjustly taken from them. It is my hope that the Nation of Hawaii does not forsake the continuity with its past monarchs. Modern constitutional monarchy provides a stability unavailable in a republican form of goverment.

it's real treat to come across this on the web.
one chapter of my recent book, the chicago gangster theory of life: nature's debt to society (verso, 1994), is devoted to an account of the hawaiian movement in the context of cultural preservation in polynesia.peace in the struggle!
I met one of your members at a lookout on Oahu, manning a T-shirt stand. I bought the tye-die with the declaration of independence printed on the front, and everyone who asks about it is *very* surprised to hear the story of the US takeover. Best of luck to all of you -- and let the fellow from the stand (I forgot his name:)) know that the guy in the tie-dyed headband really enjoyed talking to him (it was about a week ago).

the best in your endeavors. it is good to see that there are those who wish to restore that what was taken.
as a member of a nation that was taken away by the US (Seminole), i fully empathize with you. keep up the work
Love the three "Hawiaan Sovereginity" tee Shirts I gon on Oahu..100% agree with Your Soveriginity movement. Was informed a vote was to happen and that the election was to be lmited to Hawiian blood lines but is being opened to non- Hawiians. Agree the 1llegal house arrest of Your Queen in 1893 and subsequent acts of US should allow for recission of Stathood. Best of luck. Have Son in Pt Barber NAS. (Signed) MIke Bonner

Have some (little) Hawai'ian blood, but have totally lost the heritage :(...
As a frequent visitor to Hawaii to escape Minnesota winters,I have developed a fondness for the people, especially thenative people. I have been suprised at their warmth and hospitality with such a past of having their hospitality andgenerousity abused by sailors, whalers and missionaries. Iwas startled by your story - and completely unaware of it. Iwish I could say I was suprised about its contents, but seeit as just another chapter of such dealings with native Hawaiian people. I have no idea how to put a broken eggback together, and will visit your home page periodically tosee what you are suggesting. There is far to littlekindness and gentility in people's hearts today... and Ihope the Hawaiian people can maintain this rare trait while pushing for recognition of their legitimate demands.

I'm happy that there is an organization to preserve the traditions and culture of the most splendid land on the planet.

I am a graduate student in the University of Houston at Clear Lake in Studies of the Future. I found yourpage by searching for sustainability and policy.

In fact I am using the success of this movement as the basis for a shortfor one of my classes which leads to the secession of the northwest states.
Look forward to hearing from you!

I will be going back home from Sept. 10-29th and will begin my real research then (although I'm starting my preliminary scanning now).The information on your pages and those of the Office of Hawaiian Affairs are helping me to try to find a focus and get an overview of the whole situation while I'm in Chicago.

I have always been intrigued by the Hawaiian Islands. My ancestors originated from the Philippines, but the roots ofmy family are from Kauai. My grandfather had 2 sisters and4 brothers. At present, my family consists of: 9 uncles, 5 aunts, 40 cousins and of the 40 cousins spawned 15 children. I would love the opportunity to be a part of the movement to restore the Hawaiian Sovereignty.
Steven E. Woolley
I believe that the kind of sovereignty described here would be a tragic error failing to redress the injustices of the past while exacerbating the likelihood of new injustices. Nationalism is an ideal that begets a violence that cannot be tamed.Consider Bosnia. Yet it seems to me there is a sovereignty that is desireable. I hope that you will discover what that may be.

Aloha - unfamiliar w/ politics - have not had chance to study 'both sides of the coin' but to this Haole, it sounds like business as usual for the Fed. Gov't. Have heard Kam. Day is getting scrapped - very ominous to me. Am wondering how prevalent Sovereignity Movement is, and worry for family & friends in Hawai'i, both Kama'aina and Haole. Do admit my interest in Hawai'i is cultural (as a teacher and student) but still am concerned and wonder if all the ramifications (business, defense, economic, etc) have been studied. Still, my aloha and prayers to all, that this may be resolved peacefully and with dignity. My aloha to all - Peg 'Hewahinemeauluwehiwehi' HainPS - keep up the good work w/ this info - it's important!

I've been following Hawaii Nation efforts.
I grew up on Oahu going to local churches and localschools. Most of my friends could speak Hawaiian -- theyhad to since they were being raised by grandparents whospoke Hawaiian. I went home with friends. Today I realizethat I am what I am because of Hawaii.
I was back after 20 years and saw terrible things downtown Honolulu looks like anywhere big city. Molokai is still wonderful -- reminds me of the old area from Ewa to Makaha.
You are doing something right because your leaders are under attack. Look what happened to AIM and Wounded Knee. And these "natives" signed pieces of paper with the US gov. [I'm part Native American -- so I watch the mistreatment of locals here.]
Good Luck -- I try to educate one person a time about Hawaii Nation.

Though I am not Hawaiian by birth or ancestry, I do believethat your goals are very just.

Every time Ihave visited I have become more and more dismayed at whatbig money and the politicians have done and are wanting todo to Hawai'i. I have also been encouraged more and more byfinding that the Hawaiian people are becoming stronger andstronger and making definate progress to counter those ruiniousattempts.

I've lived in Minnesota since 1958 after leaving Hawaii for the Marine Corps in January 1954. I come Home to Hawaii to about twice each year to visit my Mother in Kaneohe and to do a little business.
I have been trying to get a news letter from Hawaii to try to keep up on what's happening. OHA refused to send to me because they "no nuf kala". Strange yea! Even after I hosted a show for them with 50 Minnesotans From Hawaii. I also went to a meeting for Ka Lahui Hawaii at the Queen Liliuokalani Center. Still no news letter. Hope you can help.
Me and my children (3 adults) would like to know how we can register to vote in January '96? That's four more votes for the good guys.
I don't know where the other Hawaiian's stand on thequestions, because I cannot talk about it with so little information. Do you have a news letter? Some back issues too?

I am one of many descendants of Henry Adams Beers (1833-81) andKalanialii KamaKauahoa Beers (1848-1922). These are my great, great, great grandparents. Kalanialii was a descendant of some chief of Molokai.
Being a very diluted mixed breed, I can still sympathizewith the nation-state effort. However, realistically,it will buy nothing. The damage is already done. The land is gone. The Japanese and the Bishops own nearlyeverything and unless the nation-state "nation-statalizes"everything the foriegners own, nothing will change. Andif the nation state did to that, the ramafications wouldbe devastating to the islands' economy. But who knows, in the end, the termites may have everything.

We lived on O'ahu for seven wonderful years, and I miss it dearly.I am not Hawaiian by blood, but I certainly am at heart. I supportHawaiian sovereignty. No where else on earth can you find the kind of benevolent social, educational, and welfare legacies instituted by the members of the Hawaiian royal family. Their incredibly wise and generous gifts of trusts have helped those who aren't even Hawaiian through The Queen's Medical Center, Queen Emma Clinic, Kamehameha Schools, just to name a few. My very best wishes in yourefforts to make the Nation of Hawai'i once more a reality! :)

Mahalo Nui loa for this website. It is wonderful to be ableto gather information about the Nation of Hawaii and the sovereignty movement over the Internet. It is easier to help teach people here about the movement and also take them a little closer to Na Kanaka a me Ka Aina o Hawaii. The website is beautiful and informative, keep up the good work not only here on the net but there in Hawaii.

Interested in these pages because my fiancee (Helen Dumag) is from Molokai. Our plan is to move back a fewyears after we graduate from OSU. As I am haole, I'm trying to learn as much as I can about the culture, history, etc as possible (without too much work) I did visit once in September of 1994. We stayed with Helen's hanai dad, Moke Kim. Mainly, we helped him string fence on his new farm. We also helped Uncle Kile (sp?) (I'm da Irish haole) with his new fence. And helped Uncle Henry castrate bullsfor 4H. It was one of the best vacations I have ever had.

Knowing that those involved with Nation of Hawai'i are fighting for the power that is their right, gives hope whenever people seek to take control and participation in the decisions which affect their lives and the lives of their families and communities.The issues may vary, but the underlying process of individual people, groups and communities taking power are the same.
Please let me know if I can be of any additional assistance.

We must educate the ignorant American masses of the facts behind the takeover of Hawaii by the USA and convince them it is not too late to change the process.
The statehood vote and status is invalid based on the takeover of the Republic of Hawaii and background of the Territorial Government.

I'm 1/4 Hawaiian, family has homestead on Maui
Del Mar, California, in San Diego
I'm very interested in staying current with the restoration of Hawaiian independence. My Grandmother on my father's side was full blooded Hawaiian. She died in 1991 at home in her homestead on the island of Maui. My father was raised in Hana at Wainapanapa. His father was the reverend of the congregational church there. My granparents were the Rev. Herbert and Annie Brewster. I may not get the breakdown of syllables correct but my grandmother's name was: Annie Koho'opahele Kailipuahilo Aikau Kalani nui Aimoko Brewster. I have two daughters who are very proud of their heritage and we would like information on any organizations near us that would enable us to learn more about our heritage and learn the language. My Grandmother spoke, and many of my cousins speak the language. My grandmother was one of two women who fought and succeeded in getting the Bible back in print in the Hawaiian language back in the 1960's. We are all very proud of the life she led. Please respond, I am anxious to hear from someone. My father is here on the mainland, he is closely watching the developments regarding Hawaiian independence and I will share all information with my family here. Aloha!

Good luck to your independence efforts. Particularlyin restoring and preserving the Polynesian culture. I'venever been to Hawaii, but as a non-Polynesian, I thinkonly non-Polynesians should be able to own real estatethere. I, myself, am starting to get involved in myEuropean heritage and become proud of my ancestry andwestern culture. I fear the trend is for my heritage todisappear. Some of my fellow European-Americans hope fora separate Eurpean-American society. I know it soundsscary to some people that races want to be separate, butI believe we will see more examples of balkanizationthroughout the world and even in North America. I havegiven up rock music and returned back to the greatestworks of my culture - Mozart, Beethoven, Wagner, Rossini,Strauss, opera music. I challenge other European-Americansto do the same and rediscover the beautiful works fromthe Age of Reason and great scientific discovery insteadof the self-destructive, violent, sexist rap music. Maybeour world will be a more peaceful place if we can getalong separately!
Good luck Hawaiians!
If possible, I would appreciate any information on Hawai'i's family and children policies and programs. I am aware that Hawai'i has many new and inovative programs that I am interested in researching further for a project. Any information where I could fing this info would be greatful.

Aloha. Having moved to the mainland just 6 months ago, I amso happy to have found a web site to keep me informed aboutwhat's going on at home. While living in Hawai'i, I neverreally kept up with the sovereignty movement. I've been reading a lot of information here on the web about the threemodels and am still unsure how I feel about sovereignty. Istrongly support the revitalization of the language andculture. I agree that the land was wrongfully taken away.However, how willing are Hawaiians as a group to work togethertoward the goal of sovereignty? If Hawaiians vote for onemodel, how will the leaders of the other sovereignty groups accept that? If sovereignty is granted, how will that affectthose who aren't Hawaiian? How will Hawai'i's economy, so dependent on tourism, be affected?I truly believe that for our people to overcome many of theobstacles that face us, we must become educated. Learningour language and culture is highly important, but we mustalso face this: a haole education is important too.I hope that this web site will be a means that people aroundthe U.S. and the rest of the world will learn about Hawai'i.I've been asked some really odd questions about Hawai'i, andhopefully this web site will educate others.There's a lot more I could say.......maybe next time. Untilthen, malama pono and a hui hou.

I lived in Kona for 7 years. Just leaving in August of thisyear. What the current state and federal governments are doing to Hawaii is a crime. I thank the many Hawaiians who were so goodto me and my family. My daughter had the wonderful experienceof participating in the sailing canoe E'ala on the Big Island What she experienced she will take with her the rest of her life.she was very fortunate to have met people like Angel Pilago and his wife Nita, plus many more Hawaiian people. What she has learned from her sailing experience and Hawaiian tradition I am sure will makeher ready for this world and will be something she will share with everyone she comes in contact with. I would like to thank thepeople of Hawaii, especially the people of Ho'ona who shared a smallpart of their life with us. I hope to return someday again as a familyto a place and people I truly love. It was extremely difficult to leavebut it is only temporary. I have a story to tell about Hawaii, it is notof Hotels & resorts but of the REAL people of Hawaii, the Hawaiians.Mahalo many times over. God Bless the Hawaiian people and their islands.

I attended Mililani High for three years and often visit my mom and brother in Pearl City. When I moved away in 1991, I don't remember the independence movement being as prominent as it seems to be now. I am undecidided as to whether I support it or not. I do support "keeping da country country." The North Shore is the only place remotely Hawaiian and largely undeveloped on Oahu. I would hate to see it ruined by hotels and golf courses. The last thing Hawaii needs is to have to have Haleiwa turn into a beachfront Waikele.
excellent web page. I hope to return to Hawaii someday soon.

It was pretty interesting to read the New Hawai'i Constitution.I think solidarity and cultural unity can work hand in hand witha cordial diversity of people to form the best solution for all.I support the right of Hawai'i (aauaii) to independence, but, I do notsupport radical change to this independence, because "radical" meansit will forget to include many potential participants. I feel "culturalprotocol" needs to be renewed in an identifiable, peaceful way that people will respect, while still being firm in advocating rights.

I don't mean to be insulting, but, lest you forget, the people of Hawaiisubmitted a constitution to the Senate of the United Statesalong with a request for statehood. As far as I know, you have notattempted to secede from the United States, so who are you kidding? If you would only call a Secession convention, then the State/nationcould leave the United States peacefully, as it would be a monumental blunderfor the U.S. to use military strength in this time of self-determination.

Juridic State of Nature
Mahopac, New York
I am disturbed to learn that U.S. Prosecutor Les Osborne would care to intimate that the Hawaiian vote to join the United States in 1959 in any way whatsoever impliedeither directly or indirectly a forfeiture of prior claims to Hawaiian independence based on the illegal overthrow in 1893. ("Jury begins deliberations in Kanahele federal trial," The Honolulu Advertiser, October 28, 1995) Osborne's intimation is invalid because the 1959 vote was not a choice between Hawaiian independence versus statehood in the United States, but instead exclusively a choice between the relative rights offered by continued territorial occupation versus the rights of statehood in the United States. Hawaiian independence was neither offered nor readily obtainable at the time of 1959, and so the choice to accept statehood in the United States actually served in a limited way to increase Hawaiian participation in the true functioning of a State. Thus, the choice of Hawaiians in 1959 can be seen strictly as an increasing movement towards regaining the full functioning of a working State, as opposed to choosing to retain the more limited functioning of an occupied U.S. territory. There can be no doubt that neither Hawaiian independence nor any implied forfeiture of prior claims to Hawaiian independence was of issue during the 1959 vote, for, it is clear that U.S. occupation of Hawai'i was forcibly dominating such that the choice was exculsively one of U.S. territorial possesion versus U.S. statehood. The vote was a choice between two relative conditions with respect to the U.S., and not a choice between Hawaiian independence and either of those two conditions. No forfeiture of independence by Hawaiians is to be lawfully implied by the vote of 1959. To say the least, if the United States had wished for any implication of Hawaiian forfeiture upon the vote of 1959, respecting Hawaiian rights to independence, then it should have restored Hawai'i to independence before collecting the votes. In legal terms, the Hawaiian choice in 1959 is to be seen strictly as an exercise of the only means peacefully available for mitigating the relative losses associated with continued status as a U.S. territorial possession; and, therefore, I am disturbed that Prosecutor Osborne would fail to admit this in court.
Nice to find your page.

Although I am not of Hawaiian ancestory, I believe in the sovereinty movement and support its cause. The native Hawaiians were unjustly treated and victims to the tyranny and imperialism of the United States Government. The westerners were very ethnocentric and never took into consideration the views, feelings, or culture of the native Hawaiians. The result of this was an unfortunate demolition to a stable and proud culture. I am currently doing a term paper on the overthrow of the monarchy and it greatly disturbs me as I do more research and find how the motives of missionaries and their coup was in large part for self-advancement. They were dissatisfied and felt somewhat threatened by Queen Liliuokalani's government policy, thus pleading to the U.S. for help.
In presenting this issue to my english class, I received a lot of blank stares from the lack of knowledge of this issue. It is a shame that this issue still remains in the dark throughout most of the mainland, but I will make it a point to at least do my part in increasing the awareness amongst my peers and this community. The only way I see this movement succeeding in attaining its goals is by increasing awareness locally and nationally, as well as receiving national publicity. Through that, pressure from a mass of supporters will force the government to respond and ultimately change will result. As part of the Hawaii club here at Wash U in St Louis, I think it would be great for Hawaii as well as your organization if somehow a speech or public forum could be arranged. Each week our school hosts a guest speaker which attracts a large audience. If you are interested and able I'm sure the administration here as well as the population here would surely welcome you. I realize financial and other constraints, but if it is possible, it would be an honor for the Hawaii club to assist you. In this way we would not only be spreading some of the culture and history, but increasing awareness as well.
I am interested in your cause and would like to know more about this organizations objectives and background as well as its position relative to other sovereignty groups. Do you accept non-Hawaiians? How do you feel about other organizations? If you have any itinerary, pamphlets, or propaganda, please send some to my address: Clayton Chun/ Washington Univ./ 6515 Wydown Blvd./ Campus Box 4614/ St. Louis, Mo 63105-2298. Keep fighting, stay strong. Aloha, clayton

They're bothtermed as "survivors" [of a death camp type prisoner experience]by AI. We are publishing a pro-Hawai'i sovereignty articlein the 1995 issue of our International Journal of Nonviolence.The 1996 issue of our Journal will target ethical and ethnicalissues, hopefully including why it appears so hard, almostimpossible for groups like Greenpeace International (whetherAmsterdam, Hamburg, or Washington, DC) to network or organizewith Arabs and Palestinians -- maybe as well with Non-U.S. or Non-French oriented Polynesian people -- in dealing with issueslike nuclear bombs and counterinsurgency technologies.

I am doing an essay on this issue and would like to have all the possibleinformation on and behind the movement so I may notonly be able to write an accurate representation of this movement, but also expose those who shall read my essayto this issue and reality of the truths of Hawaii.

here we are, my friend and I, we just sucessfullyinstalled Netscape 2.0b2 on her comput'r and its great...I pointedthe browser at the Nation soon after, and it looks and feels like, sovereignty is inspiring when information about attainment is so easily shown to friends. ... I worked in the Northwestern UnitedStates and Canada before coming here, on sovereignty issues and ethnocartography issues for First Nations, and forestry/sustainable economic planning development. Looking forward to talking andmeeting with you soon, and may Bumpy be released soon. bye for now,Forrest Iarwain

I have been on your mailing list for quite a while now. I am always interested on the updates concerning the liberation of your nation and of course recently the imprisonment of your leader, Kanahele. I have been very fortunate in having the opportunity to visit and work in your land over the last few years. I was associate producer on a documentary that was shot in Hawai'i. I spent quite a bit of time on Maui and the island of Hawai'i. It is really hard to explain my feelings for your nation. It is unlike any other on the planet. Your geology, biology and culture are so closely tied, the distinction between science and art is insignificant. I whole heartedly support your mission. Though it may not feel evident at times, you are truely a blessed people. Peace and Mahalo Nui.
Great place to live.

Good luck. I like the Nation in a Nationconcept. Being raised on an "Indian"reservation in Montana I understandthe pros and cons but I still believeeconomically it would be unsoundto become an independent country.

I am part-Hawaiian. We moved to Hawaii when I was 15 and it was the first time I everwas the first time I ever felt at home. As a formerpolitical activist in the islands, I'm happy that you'allare taking the bull by the horns. Hawaii is the only placeI've ever felt at home. I miss my stomping grounds inHonolulu, and hope someday to go back. Thanks for bringinga part of home to the Midwest. I don't hear anything aboutyour activities here. Keep up the good work!

Your group is living a delusion. Hawaii can never become anindependent nation. It is an integral part of the United States of America, and it's flag is the STARS AND STRIPES.Under our national Constitution, no state can leave the Union because the Constitution is "THE SUPREME LAW OF THELAND." And judging the lengths the Federal Government wentto keep the Southern states in the Union during the CivilWar, I don't think Hawaiian independence is likely anytimesoon!

Mahalo for this contact with Hawaii, keep up the good work! Your efforts on WWW is proof that in order to gain support, you must educate those people who are unaware of our struggles back home. And in order to get to your goals, our people also must be educated. The white man's method of gaining control of any group of people is to take away things of importance, our culture, our language....my tutu used to tell me that she wasn't allowed to speak Hawaiian in school, didn't the white man do the same thing to 'their' slaves, he kept them from learning to read. Mahalo nui for efforts, IMUA!

Having recently paid a visit to Moloka'i, the birthplace of my mother, I have become interested in hearing about the Hawaiin independence movement. I'm only 1/8th Hawaiian ancestry, however, I enjoyed very much speaking to some of the native Hawaiian people that I came in contact with. I was able to mostly avoid the "tourist" experience and am looking forward to returning to Moloka'i in the future. I hope the Hawaiin independence movement catches on and other arrangements can be made to be sure that Hawaiian ancestry is not completely wiped out by the continued intrusions by people who see it as nothing more than entertainment. Good Luck!!

I support the movement to reclaim Hawaii to its people. I hope to soon see the movement becomes more cohesive and less extreme. Currently I believe that the movement is too fragmented. There is a need for a more unified voice. The separate movements must meet and coalesce. Otherwise all is lost before it begins. Good luck.

I have always felt that Hawaii was illegally and immorally annexed by the United States, and I very much opposed statehood for the islands. Unfortunately, it seems that the islands are inhabited by so many different kinds of people which very much dilute the righteous cause of soverignity. I have only visited Hawaii and Oahu one time but I was pleased to see the spirit of independence alive. The people in the United States have no idea that this is a very real situation, alive to-day.

My grandmother is half indigenous Hawaiian. I attend what is proven to be one of the most diversified universities ( UCLA ) in america as far as ethnic studies is concerned. Yet the majority of courses offered here are eurocentric in origin. Many student groups on campus are fighting for programs such as Southeast Asian studies and Pilipino studies. There Are absolutely zero course offered here in anything Hawaiian and it is very difficult to find anything about history or culture. Do you know of any resourses that may be available in Hawaii or California that may be beneficial to the study of Hawaii or the adoption of some type of Hawaiian studies? Please respond.
Richard W. (Rick-"Howle Boy") Harkness
It's about time the people of Hawaii spoke out. As a boy living in Makiki area near the fire house, my best (and only) friends lived in an area called "Papapalaa" (sp?). This was a Hawaian only area that I could not even enter by myself at first. In time I came to know many families thru my friends. These were the true people of Hawai'i.....and I learned many things from them. They took me in as thier own...and I will never forget them. Even now some 35 years later.
The HuiHui's, the Kalani's, the Kipapa's all victims of the white mans presence......and even though they could take "me" into thier hearts and homes....a white kid. These were..and are..the true people of Hawai'i and I for one, will always support any cause to raise these people up!

I hope that you don'tsuffer the same fate, but you should be prepared for violenceto be used against you by the gov't. in Washington, itseems to be their first resort rather than the last.I will pray for you and again I wish you success in yourstruggle.
i'm really impressed that your community is using internet to educate the broader public about sovereignty issues. Great communication source, particularly for people that aren't aware of Native Hawaiian issues.

There needs to be a unified effort to right the wrong's thatwere done to the "Native Hawaiian" people, and indirectly tothere desendants.
Remember that it was a monarchy, and it's people were providedfor by the ruling class. We need to be sure and unified in what it isthat we want as "Reparation"
Find out how to do this and we will be a much stronger voice
I sorry that I will have to disagree with you on this idea.First point. American citizens and not the US government overthrew the Queen in 1893.Second Point. The people of Hawaii voted 17 to 1 in favor of statehood in 1959.Third point. How dare you attempt to speak for the people of Hawaii. Who elected you?Who was allowed to write your "constitution". Acknowlegding the fact that the queen was overthrown. Does notallow people the right not to pay taxes. I am sure this people who do not think they should pay taxes, still like to receive any form of government benefits ie roads, defense food saftey , airplane saftey.You may not be happy with what had happen in the past, but deal with what you got today. You live in the United Stated and that is not the worst place to leave.How many people in the state of Hawaii even agree with your position?

One of the more interesting web sites I have encountered
Are you people loons?
Milton, Washington, U.S.A.
I have read and have seen a film of how the U.S. took Hawaii by overthrowing the government and then illegally (very obviously) annexed it.As a U.S. resident, I am ashamed and appalled at their actions.However...please...I urge you to go carefully...go slowly...think everything through...try not to let emotions get carried away...make your message clear and sensible and responsible,and people will listen. If you resort to rhetoric and namecalling, people will close their ears...it's that simple. Pleasenever lose your sense of aloha, especially for those not of the same race. Many people besides Hawaiians call Hawaii home, and not all of them are haoles. Please consider theirfeelings and lives whatever you plan or decide. Also, please,for the sake of all, avoid racism at any cost. It is a horrorand a crime that many people of white descent have or areracists--but it can work both ways. Don't stoop to that level.There is a saying in the Bahamas from a poem--"when the oceanfence you in, all is kin." Please keep that in mind for allwho are presently living on the islands. I'm not presently sure yet what is best for the islands--total sovereignty or a "nation within a nation" status--but I know I would ratherlet the people of Hawaii work it out themselves than try to dictate what's best. I just long and pray that whatever youdo...you do in love, care, and patience. And pray that God will guide you in whatever decisions you make. Queen Lilioukalaniwould have sought His guidance. Aloha to all in Christ's name.

When I was stationed at Barbers Point, I realized just how littlethe native Hawaiians had. The island was mainly occupied by thearmed forces and tourists. It was terrible to see how the nativesof the islands were treated - mere subjects of enjoyment or asvirtual wage slaves. It's been a long time coming - Hawaii, like anyother U.S. possession robbed at gunpoint should be given back !!!

Anyways, thanks for all tha music and info about the attepted imprisonment of the President of the Soveriegn Nation of Hawai'i--kinda sounds like the same kinof thing tha feds have used against Leonard Peltier for the past twenty years. Thank god that they didn't suceed in imprisoning this guy as they have Leonard for so long on phoney evidence.......the music's great (i look forward to being able to listen to the 2.0 songs--the 1.0 one's sound a bit like stephen hawking's computer voice accompanied by a computer guitar.......later....

I loved visiting the state of Hawaii and am in favor of whatever is best for the islands and the people. I'm not sure that being a separate nation will really be better for Hawaii...after all the little nations in the world still have to cow tow to the super powers and now there are some benefits that statehood brings...but I'm no expert. In the meantime I'm proud to have Hawaii as one of the United States...it is indeed a beautiful wonderful place and people too! I will put the land of Hawaii in my prayers
I'd never even heard of the Hawaiian separatist movement until just now. Don't really know what to make of it, butI do have to admit that your Consitution is a veryinteresting document, especially with regard to what isconsidered an inalienable right.You people seem sincere, and I do hope that things work outfor the best.

I AM CURRENTLY STUDENT TEACHING FIRST GRADE HERE IN BATESVILLE.IN JANUARY 1996, I WILL TEACH AN INTEGRATED UNIT ON HAWAII (THAT IS, I WILL USE THE THEME OF HAWAII TO TEACH LANGUAGE ARTS, MATH, SCIENCE, SOCIAL STUDIES, ART, MUSIC, ETC.). I AM HAVING A BIT OF TROUBLE COMING UP WITH INFORMATION I CAN USE. FOR EXAMPLE, THERE DOESN'T SEEM TO BE MANY TEACHER'S GUIDES IN PUBLICATION THAT OFFER ASSISTANCE IN TEACHING ABOUT HAWAII, SPECIFICALLY. I REALLY NEED HELP. SO FAR, THIS NETSCAPE PROGRAM IS EXCITING, BUT IF YOU COULD HELP ME IN ANY WAY, I'D APPRECIATE IT.

I am doing a term paper on the Hawaiian's interest in obtaining sovereignty.It is a little difficult being across the country, if someone could give me a few good web sites I would greatly appreciate it. My interest in this comes from the fact that I have family in Pahoa on the big island, andmy boyfriend here at Penn State was born and raised in Curtistown. His mother works for the University of Hawaii, Hilo. It is a small world.
