Akaka Bill supporter ignores inherent Kanaka Maoli rights - Haw...

Full story: Honolulu Star-Bulletin

As supporters of Hawaiian Independence, we wish to acknowledge Gov. Linda Lingle's decision to somberly commemorate rather than callously celebrate what for Kanaka Maoli and other Hawaiian kingdom heirs was the third major crime committed against us by the U.S. when it fraudulently incorporated our country in 1959, its 1893 overthrow of our ...

Can America legislate law in a foreign country? can it forcibly take subjects of another constitution and demand fealty to its own?

I am not concerned about another attempt by the US to find a legal basis for its Hawaiian claims. Hawaiians do not need to be reorganized and we know the owners of the land.

The discussion is what is the most reasonable process of turning over operations in the Hawaiian archipelago to our Hawaiian government.

In all seriousness and sincerity, Who and/or what (political ideology) is "our Hawaiian government?"

Akaka's soverenty bill the dumbest piece of legislasrion since Mad Maxine Waters introduced a bill to ban diapers in maternity wards.
Not to mention Rod Tam's proposed city ordinance making it a criminal act for malodorous people to use public transportation. Now that's right up there with those bills you cite on the national level.

What a total shibai. These "kanakas" were not the first here. The Marequesands were here hundreds of years before the Hawaiians and were butchered and endslaved by Hawaiians. Most of the Sovs. are Asian are haole. No one believes their lies.
Again Alice in Knuckland (better there than when she was at the UH leeching off Hawaii's resources)speaks out of her ample o'kole without knowing what she's speaking about Soli Niheu (Soli is a misspelling of So'le, a nickname he was given in the Army by his fellow polynesians in the Army, when he was the only Hawaiian, and his unit's only other polynesians were Samoans)is pure Hawaiian, with not a drop of asian blood, although his kids are half Korean, who, like his relatives, originally hail from Niihau. Soli speaks the Hawaiian language because he learned it from birth, not from the UH. Alice, stick to farming and your adulterated Brittish accent that all you knucks have, instead of trying to discuss things abour Hawaii.

Henry Niheu, I agree with you that Jon Van Dyke is just a do gooder Haole who is patronizing and a bit condescending to the Kanaka Maoli,just like Prof. Gerry Brown of American Studies, back in the day. But don't go praising Lingle, she is a snake just like the Dean of Arts & Sciences in the Bachman sit in days. Lingle is a sugar planter type of Republican, just like the type who fooled Prince Cupid Kalanianole, and later on Joe Kealoha when he ran with Quinn for Lt. Gov. The Akaka Bill isn't perfect, especially with the waiver clause, but since it isn't a treaty which the Hawaiians will agree to, the waiver clause therein can always be challenged later on in court as being an unconstitutional deprivation of due process of law, and unconscionable. Your old Ethnic Studies friend who became a lawyer, I'm not Larry K. but Larry and I went to the same law school, although the Rev. Larry went about 8 yrs. after I did.

I find it hypocritical and disingenuous of those critical of anything Hawaiian, esp. rights. Our State is called Hawaii, and has always been so. Most of our streets and places have Hawaiian names, and we proudly tell people we come from Hawaii. We still have many of the customs, dances, songs and even the Hawaiian people in our mist. We are the ONLY State that had an existing Govt. overthrown to become part of the U.S. and that Govt. were the indigenous natives of the land. In contention of the land taken, it is held in trust. Why hold something not taken? To claim the State will lose some of the land implies we (all of you) have benefited for centuries on what was taken. Are we all willing to totally lose the identity of Hawaii./then we all lose
