No, Pat, they aren't. Some cases in point: Hitler, Stalin, Saddam Hussein, Castro, Mao Tse Tung, et al.
I am refering to today and our own society/government.

WHEEEWH! That's a relief!

<quoted text>The so-called "Hawaiian culture" actually consisted of very different and distinct cultures, dialects, songs, chants and genealogies, generally separated by island, by in some cases differing significantly between ahupua`a.
The Ni`ihau dialect, for example, cannot even be understood by the vast majority of people who speak "standard" Hawaiian language.
It is a very analogous situation to the different Indian tribes of North America and elsewhere.
That's a stretch.

Poi,
Your past tense is correct: "we were..."
We are now one of the ethnic groups of people that make up the United States, and I hope it stays that way.
Nobody invited you.

You can keep doing what you were doing.

The nearly 500 Indian Tribes already in existence don't seem to have interrupted your life.

Carry on.

The current Akaka "toe-nail" Hawaiian definition, is at direct odds with the "native Hawaiian, as defined in the Hawaiian Homes Commission Act, 1920," and upon whose HHCA and 5(f) lands, Senator Inouye (using Akaka) seeks to impose this artificial and manufactured scheme of a make believe Indian tribe.
Goodmorning Dr. Conklin.

HHCA Hawaiian definition is "out of thin air" as Akaka Hawaiian or the new "Qualified Hawaiian".

Too funny.
