Ma ka lā 9 ihola o kēia mahina nei, hoʻopuka mai nei ka Luna Hoʻokolokolo ʻĀpana o ʻAmelika Hui ʻia, ʻo Colleen Kollar-Kotelly, i kāna ʻōlelo hoʻoholo no ka hihia o David Keanu Sai kūʻē i ke Kuhina Aupuni o ʻAmelika, ʻo Hillary Clinton, ke Kuhina Kūpale, ʻo Robert Gates, a me ka ʻAkimalala Robert Willard.

Ma ia makahiki hoʻokahi nō, hoʻokumu nō hoʻi lāua i kekahi hui, ʻo ia ʻo ka Hawaiian Kingdom Trust Company nāna e hoʻokō i nā kuleana o ke aupuni o ke Aupuni Mōʻī Hawaiʻi ma ke ʻano pani hakahaka kūikawā ā hiki i ka wā e hoʻihoʻi hou ʻia ai ke aupuni kū i ke kānāwai o ke Aupuni Mōʻī. I ka 1996, hoʻopuka ka Hawaiian Kingdom Trust Co. he kuahaua he hoʻopiʻi ia no nā palapala ʻona ʻāina a pau o ka Paeʻāina no ka hoʻokō ʻole ʻia o nā kānāwai o ke Aupuni Mōʻī Hawaiʻi.

Ma ka ʻōlelo hoʻoholo a ka Luna Hoʻokolokolo Kollar-Kotelly, ua ʻae ʻokoʻa ʻo ia i ka moʻolelo o ke Aupuni Mōʻī Hawaiʻi, ʻo ia hoʻi, he aupuni kūʻokoʻa ia a hoʻokahuli ʻia kona aupuni i ka 1893 a hoʻoholo ʻia ma ka hoʻokolokolo ʻana ua hewa nā kuhina pūʻali koa ʻAmelika ma ke kōkua ʻana i ka hoʻokahuli ʻana i ke aupuni o ke Aupuni Mōʻī a ua hoʻoili ka Mōʻī Wahine Liliʻuokalani i kona mana mōʻī i ka pelekikena o ʻAmelika, ʻo Grover Cleveland, ā hiki i ka wā e hoʻihoʻi hou ʻia ai kona aupuni.

Ma ka hoʻoholo ʻana i kona manaʻo, hoʻoholo aʻela ka Luna Hoʻokolokolo Kollar-Kotelly he nīnau pili kānāwai nō ka nīnau nui o kēia hihia—ʻoiai he kānāwai nō hoʻi ke kauoha mana hoʻokō a Cleveland a he hiki ke hoʻoholo ʻia ma kona ʻaha hoʻokolokolo—eia kā, ma kāna hōʻike, ua ʻoi aʻe ke ʻano pili kālaiʻāina ʻo ka hoʻokō ʻole ʻia ʻana o ka hoʻoili mana ʻana a Liliʻuokalani a ʻaʻohe mana o kona ʻaha hoʻokolokolo e hoʻokahuli i ka hana kālaiʻāina o ke aupuni o ʻAmelika, a no laila, hoʻopau ʻo ia i ka hoʻopiʻi ʻana o Sai iā Clinton mā a ma kona manaʻo na ka māhele pili kālaiʻāina o ke aupuni ʻAmelika e hoʻoholo i kēia nīnau.

CORRECTION

» The English-language synopsis for the Hawaiian-language column "Kauakukalahale" on Page A15 Saturday should have read: Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly acknowledges the validity of the Cleveland-Liliuokalani Agreement. The column included an incorrect synopsis.
