Today's Hawaiian sovereignty independence activists are systematically ignoring heroes of the Hawaiian Kingdom who had no native blood. By removing non-natives from the pantheon of Hawaiian national historical heroes, today's Hawaiian activists show their intentions for the future. They say their movement is about a nation, not a race. They say people of all races will be welcome as citizens in the newly re-established nation. But their clear intention is to make second-class citizens of everyone lacking native blood, giving them only voting rights restricted to certain topics and property rights restricted to certain areas. This column in today's newspaper is a good example of ethnic cleansing regarding the holiday Ka La Ku'oko'a. There's no mention at all of missionary William Richards, who was the senior member of the team which traveled to Europe to seek recognition. Richards was the hero who led the team that got recognition of Hawaii as an independent nation; Timoteo Ha'alilio was a young chief who accompanied him as a sort of travel adventure. On November 28, 1843, the governments of Britain and France issued a joint resolution "to engage, reciprocally, to consider the Sandwich Islands as an independent state, and never to take possession, either directly or under the title of protectorate, or under any other form, of any part of the territory of which they are composed." This was not a treaty with Hawai'i. Rather, it was a non-aggression agreement between Britain and France, agreeing with each other that neither country would take over Hawai'i at the expense of the other one. Hawai'i, of course, was the beneficiary, and chose to regard this joint resolution as a treaty recognizing Hawaiian independence. Modern-day sovereignty activists hail this joint resolution as a formal recognition of Hawai'i as a member of the worldwide community of nations whose independence is protected under international law. Richards had arrived in Hawai'i in 1823, and served as a missionary in Lahaina where he was noted for educating thousands of natives and protecting them against drunken sailors and sharp businessmen. In 1838 Richards was appointed by the King to serve as "Chaplain, Teacher, and Translator to the King." Richards helped the King write his 1839 declaration of the rights of man, and the Constitution of 1840. Gerrit Judd had arrived in Hawai'i later than Richards, and was brought into the King's cabinet to serve under Richards. Thus, Richards was a very senior member of the Kingdom government. Timoteo Ha'alilio is described by Gavan Daws ("Shoal of Time") as "a capable young chief who had been private secretary to King Kauikeaouli." Richards had been given virtually unlimited powers by the King. Gavan Daws reports that Daniel Webster, U.S. Secretary of State, "was unresponsive, and he remained so until Richards let it be known that he would place the islands in the hands of Great Britain. As a matter of fact he was empowered to do anything he wanted: he was carrying papers signed and sealed by King Kauikeaouli but otherwise completely blank." Later on, before leaving to return to Hawai'i, Timoteo Ha'alilio died. William Richards alone brought back to Hawai'i the precious joint resolution from Britain and France, and the unused signed blank Royal papers. Note that William Richards was definitely the senior partner in the diplomatic mission, and Timoteo Ha'alilio was described as having been private secretary to the King. Richards was the man to whom the King had given signed but blank documents which Richards could fill in with whatever treaty language he considered best for Hawaii. Yet, ethnic Hawaiian sovereignty activists like to do ethnic cleansing of history by reversing their roles, claiming that Richards served as a mere secretary to Ha'alilio!
