Now as a resident of Hawaii, and growing up in South Florida and seeing what I call the travesties of the Native American, in this case the Seminole Indian, I am in full support of the Native Hawaiian and Homeland Argument (return). I just wonder in 1995 if most realize that the US Government will NEVER return to the Native Hawaiian People anything. Bits and pieces of land may be set aside over time, but it (Big Brother) will NEVER, designate an Island or any decent piece of land. I feel this is wrong, but with people like Ms. Trask, and her "Loud" way of speaking out, most people, to include myself find her more amusing than taking her serious. A "soft" voice is needed or nothing will ever really be done (In my humble opinion)

You should have links to other sovereignty home pages like Poka Laenui, and other indigenous nations. You also need to include diacritical marks, including the kahako in your home page, otherwise everything Hawaiian word you type out is a potential spelling error. Otherwise I think this is a great page worthy of Hawaiian potential. Kealii

I have been following the developments in the Sovreignty movement since the 1978 State Con-con, am impressed with the progress in the movement. It appears to me that there are a number of fundamental issues which have not been addresed as yet, but this is understandable as there has not been an assembly in which the divergent views as to what the form of sovreignty would be.

Well I don't have any home page or anything like that, but I got a bunch of photos on H4 Hawaii's Data Superhighway that you can view... so that is what my WWW address is for the moment.
This WEB page is very informative. I am part Hawaiian but am not sure what model of soverignty I would support or even if I would support it at all.
Still this page is nice and exposes the world to Hawaii's confusing dilemma as to "who should really be in charge" around here.

Frans Nyhuis
I hope you are seriously addressing the issue of Native American rights to operate casinos on private land. Although the legislature has dragged its feet on bringing gaming to Hawai'i (imagine that, the state legislature dragging its feet), I would hope the Hawaiians would be able to establish a casino on their own, without state intervention. If the state were to acquire the revenue, no one but the legislators and big business would benefit. There are fears that gaming would attract organized crime. I feel organized crime exists here in Hawaii in the form of the state and local governments. These criminals steal from all residents of Hawai'i, native and non-native. We all know the real reason Hawai'i does not have gaming. The kickbacks that the politicians receive from Las Vegas lobbyists to prevent the loss of Hawaiian gaming revenue there would be sorely missed. Unless those politicians were ensured that they could steal more from a local casino, they will never approve a gaming referendum. Please establish your own casino, at least the money will go to the people most deserving. Thank you for the forum.

Aloha mai! I would just like to say this: Hawaiian groups should get together and join hands in unity. Everyone has their differences but if you argue about who's right, nothing will ever get done for the people who need help: native Hawaiians. Each group has something positive to contribute. Why not promote unity instead of separatism and then strength will come.

I support the idea in principle, but from all of my interactions so far, the advocates seem to be racist. I won't support racism in any form. There should be no reference to 'Haoles' in any derogatory sense as the cause of your problems. I think you should accept support from anyone that wants to give it, regardless of race. I have gone to Makaha, Makapu'u, and many other places and have been confronted by people that support your cause and have been told that I should go home because I am a Haole.
[editor's note: the Nation of Hawai`i is inclusive, and our Constitution provides naturalized citizenship, voting, protection of rights, and participation in government for all permanent residents of Hawai`i. The 'racism' Mr. Dickison experiences is, however, the result of systematic discrimination against the Hawaiian people, and is one of the challenges we face as we work toward a harmonious future...]

We just took 2nd lace at the New York PC Exp with Penn St. taking 1st. We've created an editor to allow our teachers and students to create similar projects easily and quickly. We plan on pressing CD's for Hawaiian Studies use and hopefully getting them out for free. With 216 sub-topics, it would be nice to open it into a state-wide project. Anyway, I'd be happy to send you a video if you get me an address Til then...a hui hou! Jim

You probably know Uncle Sam and maybe the Maku'u Ohana way out here. We know each other and we will most likely helping the Hilo office when they are ready to go WWW.
I am really interested to hear what you have to say about our new webpage. Please have a look. I respectfully ask that you review ourwording and style in terms of cultural content. I would like to insure that net-surfering Hawaiians feel in tune with what is presented on our pages. If you have any basic advice, I would appreciate that too.
If you know of any of the Nation's novice net-surfers out here in Puna,you may let them know that I'm here and willing to help them get set up.

Hello again! I signed the guest book before I had read through the various links. I am profoundly impressed with the level of wisdom, reasonableness, and basic good sense that I am finding on these pages. It is quite heartening. I am also impressed with the entire web site--both in terms of content and the overall aesthetic. I should not have been surprised. The Hawai'i people I have been fortunate enough to know and learn from have all had a natural elegance--whether they were teaching a class, making preparations for a hula performance, or sweating it out in the patch. In terms of "getting it" (being relevant in thought, word, and deed) people of Hawai'i have always been way, way, way ahead of the curve. So it makes sense that a practical tool like the web would be utilized to a high creative level. And I'm just so happy to find the spirit and philosophy of Aloha so strong and intact--so pervasive in these pages. We tend to get emotional and want all the changes immediately--but the older I get the more I understand that great change, significant, life-altering change, takes place not in a day or a week or a month--or even a year. It's more like a decade--and actually a generation is more like it. By the time your kids assume positions of leadership, truly momentous change will have already occurred. We do have to be patient, focused and steadfast. It's all happening. Yay team!

The Hawaiian Sovereignty issue is a very tense one among many island residents. I feel more people (not only Hawaiians) should support the cause. I am very proud to see that this web page is up and running. It will serve to educate everyone willing to access it. As for myself, I am not Hawaiian, but support the cause fully. Because the way I see it, the Hawaiians and other Native People have been unlawfully persecuted by the US Government. They have succeeded in genocide. Where did all the Eastern Natives go? They're all dead. If we (all people) don't support Hawaiians and other Native People, extinction is all that is left. Keep up the great work and continue to educate the people of the world to the plight of the Hawaiian people.
-Michael Ishii
Note: I do not like to call the proud Native people of North America, "Native Americans" or Indians, because I feel it is a term propagated by the White mans ignorance.

I have been following the progress of the Sovereignty movement for a long time. The many injustices suffered by Hawaiians need to be resolved wisely, justly and with love, for the good of us all. I have been part of a movement here in Maunaloa to try and save this historic plantation town. The injustice and bureaucratic bullshit is incredible. The system must respond to the needs and wants of the people.

The Hawaii'n people should not have to go to the mainland because they cannot afford to live in their own land.

Charles H. Miller

This arrest, though patently unjust, reminds us that at least some in government fear the progress that is being made. No other explanation suffices for the flimsy, absurd charges, and the obscene decision about bail requirements. These are too irrational to be the results of a calm, well-considered plot against the Nation of Hawaii. There is no special urgency that forced them to move this way. Somebody, either in the US Government here, or (more likely) with friends in the US Government, started this action. This is the action of a worried, flustered person. If we could only know *what* they feared, we would have gone a long way toward calming them. But since there is really nothing for the US Government to fear from Sovereignty, guessing their fear is an exercise in imagination.*Sigh*
What a travesty!

I think the arrest of Bumpy Kanahele was a good sign for sovereignty because Nelson Mandela went to jail and when he came out he got his own country.
What do the Native Americans have to say about our movement of sovereignty?
I think you should spend more time trying to convince other Hawaiians to go for sovereignty because most of them don't want it and most of the Hawaiians I know don't want it.

I an concerned that Bumpy Kanahele is being held without bail which seems to identify him as a political prisoner. I have read nothing to indicate that your organization is a violent one though that is the misconception in some parts of the community.

There are a lot of arguments for or against sovereignty for Hawaiians in Hawaii, it is good to know that some people will commit to more than words and stand as a group for a "nation of Hawaii".

It's good to hear the Mr. Kanahele has been released from prison. I feel the federal government is operating on credit outside of its jurisdiction as stated in the U.S.C.A. at Article 1, Section 8, Clause 17.

I thought other visitors to this site should be aware that Bumpy Kanaheles Nation of Hawaii is not the only group in the islands struggling to determine a path to sovereignty. THERE ARE OTHER HAWAIIAN GROUPS engaged in this process, an organization called Ka Lahui being one of them. Bumpy's group offers one model but those of you seriously interested should research the work of other Hawaiians as well. I'm still learning about this issue myself (I grew up on Oahu and have family there and on the Big Island)

I'm just responding to the letter I just recieved from Rev. Kedar St.John. First of all I would like to say a big mahalo for responding. I really appreciate it. Second, I would love to be on your mailing list. Please keep me on and please inform me of any events, workshops or activities that you folks might be holding in the future. And since I live on Oahu I would very much like to hear about it. Please! Next, I would kind of like to change the subject. My friend and I would like to start a taro patch in his back yard. My friend lives in Pauoa. It rains a lot there so we figure that it might be a perfect place to make a Lo'i. Any suggestions or recommendations that you might have on the subject would be very appreciative. Any books you might recommend? Do you folks hold any type of workshops on taro or any other type of Hawaiian food crops? Rev. St.John told me that you folks do welcome visitors to your village, and I would like to make a visit some day. Hopefully, very shortly. Anyway, I would appreciate a response and would love to hear from you. Please, you don't have to rush in your response. Whenever you folks do have time I would appreciate a reply. P.S. No forget about the Lo'i eh! Because I love poi! Mahalo Nui Loa, Kalani

As a 27 year long non-hawaiian resident Im very interested in participating in the sovereighty movement. The movement in my opinion needs more coverage via the media. So many do not know of this. I just returned from the mainland, where I mentioned it to many. Not one person knew of the sovereignty issue. Everyone needs to be involved or at the very least notified of what is happening, if for no other reason than to identify all the people and establish who the enemies of the movement are. Make no mistake about it. The U.S. will use brutal force to hang on to these lands. I hope the Nation of Hawai'i succeeds. I hope they understand their adviserary. He is a relentess murdering s.o.b. with out guilt or conscience. I hope we all live to see our freedom. Aloha nui!

My wish is to be able to do a majority of my research from home because it's too expensive to fly to Honolulu, rent a car, pay for accomodations and parking. If access to this type of information were available over the net, more people would be researching their origins!

I am 17 years old and I am Hawaiian. I feel that the sovereinty movement is rightous and long deserved, but I feelthat increasing the Hawaiians knowledge in all aspects ofeducation is more inportant than anything else. The stereotype of the poor, uneducated Hawaiian needs to die andyour Nation of Hawaii is not helping. Part of your sovereintyplan needs to include easy access to high education. Raising awarness of the Hawaiian culture is a beautiful thing, but Hawaiians don't need to be debrived of other worldly kwoledge in order to have a complete understanding of their own culture.One example might be free tuition at any of the schools in theU.H. system. I have recieved an excellent education at HawaiiPreparatory Academy. Some people might automatically assume that because of my schooling, I've become "un-Hawaiian." Actually I feel that attending this school has helped me gaina greater desire to understand and gain knowledge about my culture, as well as helping many non-Hawaiians learn the culture. I hope that I have not offended any one, I'm just putting in my two cents in order to help the Hawaiians.

a non-hostile question? how far back should we try to turn the pages of history? wouldn't it be wiser to look to the future rather than have everyone try to turn back time. i don't know how far back i can trace my ancestry, but i do know that i have no desire to live as my people (sioux) did hundreds of years ago...nor do i wish to have all my friends and neighbors return to the country of their origin....if they can even be traced back that far. and how far backwards do we need to go? you cannot drive into the future by looking in your rear-view mirror. again, this is not hostile....but boy am i confused.

As a twenty three year resident of Hawaii, I support, in some undefined way,sovereignty for Hawaii. I'm not sure whether the Hawaiian people should havea nation within a nation, or whether the state should be an independent countrywith citizens of all origins. I am hoping this web site will lead me to a better understanding of the issues.

I am still concerned that the average Hawaiian, myself included,has the need for much more education before making an informeddecision as to the benefits of Sovereignty in practice. I note that you now favor the Native Hawaiian Vote. Perhaps now thereis room for a melding of the divergent groups to form a more united front? The bickering and back-biting among the groups maintain the confusion among the masses. How can we expect justiceif as a people we cannot agree to its definition? Difficult asit may be, we must first become cohesive in our goals before, andin strength, we can effect the change we desire. How to do that,I don't know. But I believe our next steps should be in thisdirection. For only in numbers and with one voice can the seriousness of our endeavor be communicated and our goal be met.We need a unified forum to educate Hawaiian and non-Hawaiian alike.The uninformed voter will affect the lives of my grandchildren andyours and we cannot afford to make any mistakes.
I disagree with one of your guests who says Mililani is too "loud".I did at one time believe that she was too radical to effect any positive change, but I have since recognized and respect herintelligence. This is what the haole understands and fears.It is the weapon that will most affect the movement - not passionatepleas or violent threats but intelligent argument and rationalexpectations. This will best persuade the negative mindset of ourState officials and the naysayers. We have been too quiet over thesehundred years and now IS the time to be loud with our voice. I wouldlike to rid the notion that it is "shame" to be Hawaiian.
Thank you for the opportunity to express my view, uneducated as it is.Also thanks to Scott Crawford for all the postings. I am learning.

I just wanted to thank the people who put together the homepage for theNation of Hawaii. I have just recently started reading more about thesovereignty movement in Hawaii, and am glad to see that information can be obtained on the net. Although I'm not Hawaiian, my family comes from Hanalei, on the island of Kaua'i. We have taro farms in the valley and growing up on the farm, I can associate with the deep love for the landthat the Hawaiian people feel. I just wanted to wish my support and bestwishes for all the people pushing for sovereignty. Hopefully soon, the Hawaiian people can get back what is rightfully theirs.

I feel that in order to obtain sovreignty, one must stop the economic oppression. If you are independent economically, then soon you will be indenpendent in all aspects. Today, I hate to say it but money is power. Money is freedom. Money is survival. You have to put in the time before you can earn your pay. It's that time versus money concept. I know how hard it is to survive. I know the cost of living is high on this land of mine. There is no such thing as rags to riches (unless you work to the bone), mobility is very low. You will die probably being in the same "class" as your parents, and their parents alike. STOP THE OPPRESSION, BE FREE ECONOMICALLY, THAT IS HOW THE BATTLE WILL BE WON.

I am a new resident of Hawaii trying to trace the roots of my Hawaiian/Chinese heritage. I know that my great-grandmother is Hawaiian but know little else. I know that in the early 1800's my great-grandfather left China, along with a Chinese wife in Canton several children, and came through Hawaii on his way to SanFrancisco. He lived on Oahu and Kauai for some time and duringsuch time he married his second wife, a Hawaiian woman (known only to us as Lanikai). He then went on to have several children, including my grandfather, Frank Yee. Sometime iIn the mid-1840's,my great-grandfather moved on, alone, to California. There, he married a third wife (Chinese). Because he had no sons with histhird wife, he made his second wife in Hawaii send my grandfather to him in San Francisco. They went on to move to live throughout northern California and Nevada. I know little else, other than rumours.Is there an organization in Hawaii that can help me track my roots.Perhaps an organization that recorded incoming immigrants, marriages, and/or births here in Hawaii during the 1800's?I appreciate any guidance you can provide. Mahalo.

I have been following Mr. Kanahele's quest for what is right and I support his cause. Not because he is Hawaiian and not only because a great wrong was done to the Hawaiian people, but because Mr. Kanahele has a valid argument. He has a point. A great injustice was done. Inevitably, it must be resolved.

I write to express my support for the Hawaiians on Makua beachand ask for all Hawaiians to join them in making a stand againstthe continuing genocide of Hawaiians and culture. The "House-Less"people on Makua Beach need our support. They are being labeled asuseless, lazy, dirty people. The public is given the impressionthat they are dealing in drugs and guns and making a mess at Makua.They are accused of harrassing visitors on the beach when the totalopposite is the truth. The opala that they are being blamed formaking and leaving all over the place is in fact the result ofthe cleaning that they ahve done. They put the trash in a pilefor the state to take care of. This trash is left on the beachby people who care less about the aina (both hawaiian and non-hawaiian). The state says they want to create a park at Makua.The REAL TRUTH is that the state wants to create another Bellows on the Leeward side of O`ahu and continue to allow the U.S. to rape the aina with more bombs and troops.Think about it, in Hawaii we have Pearl Harbor, Hickam, Ft. Shafter, Schoefield Barracks, Camp Smith, Kaneohe Marine CorpsBase, Wahiawa Satellite Station, Barking Sands, Pohakuloa TrainingSite and a base in Waikiki (how convenient!), Bellows plus Makuafiring range. Now they want Makua Beach. All Hawaiians should bebe on the beach with these people showing the state that enough isenough.

It's a godd page, but intresting that Hawaiians all over the world are going to be able to vote. Especially since many are not fully aware of what it about to happen, and because they have almost no sure way of being reached. How are you planning to have people on other continents vote. Is there any minimum Hawaiian-Blood percentage which will be required. I ask this because some people are not fully aware of their nationality. And those who are adopted, may be Hawaiian, but durring adoption, they legally take over their new parents nationalties.

Thank you for the rational, well-presented explanation of your position on this complex issue. I am a haole transplant of 14 years with many Hawaiian/part-Hawaiian friends on both (several??) sides of the sovereignty issues. My main concern is that often Christianity is seen as the villian, despite the historical fact that "Henry O" is largely responsible for the influx of Missionaries, and despite the fact that many Hawaiian Christians are seeking sovereignty which includes the return to the TRUE Hawaiian spirituality, including a return the the worship of 'Io.
This is the kind of educational effort and open dialog that leads to thoughful consideration of your case. Those of us looking at the issue from the "outsiders" position are turned away by the harsh rhetoric of the UH Hawaiian Studies people. Keep it with this tone, and people can support you!

I support sovereignty for Hawaiians. The sovereignty movement is a direct consequence of the American goverment's failure to keep its promises to the Hawaiian people. As an American (and I am proud to be an American) I regret my government's failure, but the fact of its failure is reality and must be acknowledged.

All I am reading about is how the US did the Hawaiian people wrong. If you look at the economy before the US presence, it was non-existant. The Native Hawaiian people have forgotten what the US has done for Hawaii. They have brought a stable economy, established a strong government, introduced foreign investors, and brought in tourism. I don't see anything wrong with that?
Now, when you talk of creating a separate nation, I see no future. Do you think that the people of other nations will want to trade with an island that can provide nothing to them. We already experienced a problem like that in Hawaiian history with sandal wood and whaling. After these were used up we went to pineapples and crops. But this is today, do you really think that people want to trade cars for pineapples? I think not. This is a narrow minded organization with no such future! Get real!

Since you are considering braking away from the United States to form your own kingdom, I would like to know how you plan to provide elementary, secondary, and college level education for the young men and women in your state.

HSEC and OHA are subordinates of Hawai`i state government and are thus subordinates of U.S. government. Do we trust "Big Brother" that much? And what are the consequences to an entire people when a foreign government determines its fate? Natives of French Polynesia, North and South America, South Africa, and of course Hawai`i have learned first hand. We ought not let it happen again. Do we realize that by creating a forum sponsored by HSEC (the state and federal govt) that we are bound by their rules? I fear that we will be stuck in a position where we have no options but to accept what the U.S. gives us....and it won't be complete sovereignty.

Aloha Hawaiians and non-Hawaiians. I'm glad to see that people are continuously checking out this homepage. Don't forget to check the sites of Ka Lahui and Poka Laenui. I am still currently researching sovereignty groups, so I can decide on who to support. I do support all the groups in their efforts of achieving soveriegnty, however, right now i still am undecided on which group best suits the needs of us Hawaiians. I am really really interested in hearing more of what other site visitors think about the issue of Hawaiian sovereignty. So, please feel free to e-mail me at Your mana'o will be greatly appreciated. I would especially like to exchange ideas with people between the ages of 18 and 25, perhaps we can get together sometime and discuss these issues. Please fee free to do so.
Aloha, a hui hou

Aloha, I am happy to find this page, although -- given the current and recent past political/financial climate, I wonder if "they" will "allow" a return of what was stolen from the Hawaiian Nation. Perhaps, after I brouse the area (if I am "allowed" to do so) I will have further comments, but I strongly feel that the Hawaiian People have every right to resume their place in the world of nations.

i teach planning related courses including Plan 632 Planning in Hawaii and Pacific Islands focusing on Hawaii, Polynesia, Melanesia and Micronesia. The course uses an indigenous perspective in dealing with island based planning. Students write papers of interest also to Hawaiian groups. Thus information from you is useful in the course. As at times students study and elaborate on what we receive. From community planning to fishpond restoration, to island environmental management and sovereignty. thank you very much.

Kudos to the Hawaiian Nation for your efforts regarding the First Hawaiian Bank anti-trust matter. I am not a native Hawaiian. I have lived for 15 years on the mainland in 5 different states. In all my adult life's banking experience, the one with FHB is by far the worst. To start with, there is so little banking competition in HI. So far, I have not tried other banks, on the assumption that they are probably the same as long as we do not have more diversification. Your Website, certainly reinforced this notion. The staff at FHB, from the top down, treats its customers financially and otherwise as if they have nothing to lose. It is especially felt at their main branch, what they regard as their flagship. Btw, its new main branch banking floor-plan (atrium) embodies it better than any word can describe. The bank needs to demonstrate itself as the patron of the art, took precedent over its functionality as public banking floor. It reminds me of the European monarchs and nobles, which the Top Five became to be here in Hawai'i. Disgusting to all of us. Please please continue your efforts on this front. Happy holidays, and God bless.

This is a great piece of artwork showing depth and beauty, as can only be expressed by Hawaiians. Thank you for the opportunity to view it. More importantly, the opportunity to express the truth about Hawaiians is beautifully expressed here.
