Aloha mai kākou e nā hoa puni 'oia'i'o a me nā hoa kū i ka pono. Eia ke hiki koke maila ka lā 31 o Iulai, a 'o ka Lā Ho'iho'i Ea nō ia. Pōmaika'i ko 'oukou mea kākau i ke kama'ilio 'ana aku iā 'Analū Perez ma ka Pō'alua nei. E 'ole 'o ia, ho'omaopopo 'ia ai ua lā nui nei e ko 'oukou mea kākau a me nā hana e mālama 'ia ana ma Kamaki Kuea i ka lā 'apōpō, ka Lāpule ho'i, ka lā 29 o nei mahina mai ke kū 'ana o ka lā i ka lolo (ka hola 12:00) a i ka hola 6:00 o ke ahiahi. I ka makahiki 1843 ia ho'iho'i 'ia 'ana mai o ke ea o ka 'āina. A mai ia manawa mai, ua lilo ia lā i lānui no ka lāhui Hawai'i. A piha hau'oli ka na'au o ko 'oukou mea kākau i ka mālama hou 'ia 'ana o ia lā i lānui no kākou mai ka makahiki 1985 a hiki i kēia lā.

'O ka mea 'āpiki, 'a'ole nō i maliu iki mai nā luna aupuni o 'Amelika. 'Ane'ane e piha nā makahiki he 30 a 'a'ole i ho'iho'i mai 'o 'Amelika i ke ea o ka 'āina. Kainō, e 'ike ana ko 'Amelika i ka hana pono a e hana like, eia kā, 'a'ohe luna aupuni pono o laila. Ma kēia hope aku paha.

E maika'i ana ka hana o ka Lā Ho'iho'i Ea ma Kamaki Kuea. He mau hana ho'olaule'a, a he mau hana a'o nō ho'i e pili ana i nā nīnau like 'ole i mua o kākou.

A 'oiai, ke kama'ilio 'ia nei ka ho'iho'i, eia mai kahi mea e no'ono'o ai. Pehea ka ho'iho'i 'ia 'ana o ka 'āina o nā kūpuna o kekahi o kākou i hana 'āpuka 'ia e kekahi o nā haole o ia au. E like ho'i me ka mo'olelo a Mary Kaleikoa i ha'i mai ai ma Ka Leo Hawai'i e pili ana i ia 'ano hana a Sam Damon. Penei ka mo'olelo:

Kēia George Houghtailing, 'o ia ka waha 'ōlelo o Sam Damon, hele i waena o nā po'e Hawai'i, 'ōlelo akula me kēia nei, “'auhea 'oe, inā 'oe makemake i kōkua, hiki nō iā Sam Damon ke kōkua iā 'oe.” A i kēia pule maybe hele ko'u kupunakāne kanawalu kālā paha a i kekahi pule aku kanahiku kālā, pēlā e pi'i li'ili'i ai a piha ka haneli, mau haneli kālā a hele maila 'o George Houghtailing, “'auhea 'oe, 'ai'ē 'oe iā Sam Damon, eia kou pila.” But, kēlā hua'ōlelo kōkua that means help, 'a'ole i 'ōlelo mai ē 'ai'ē...'o ia ka mea hewa...'ōlelo aku nei ko'u kupunakāne, “'A'ole au hele i ka hana, 'a'ohe a'u kālā e uku ai, but, he 'āina ko'u,” and ki'i 'o ia ma ka 'āina waiwai, loa'a ka wai, wai puna, lawe 'o ia i kēlā 'āina.

A 'o ia ihola ka mo'olelo mai ka waha mai o Mary Kaleikoa. A i ka makahiki 2004, ua 'ōlelo 'ia, e lilo ana he $500 miliona i nā ho'oilina o Damon. Eia ka nīnau, he hiki i nā ho'oilina o ke kanaka i hele a waiwai ma muli o ka hana 'āpuka ke pōmaika'i i ia waiwai? Inā pēlā, he hiki nō ho'i i nā ho'oilina ke uku no ia hana hewa a ke ho'iho'i i ia waiwai a pau. 'Eā, e 'ole ia hana 'āpuka a Damon, pōkeokeo ai ka waihona o ia 'ohana. Inā 'a'ole i hana 'āpuka 'o Damon, inā ua pala 'ole ka 'umeke.

A 'o kekahi mea minamina, ke kuhi nei ko 'oukou mea kākau, 'a'ole wale nō 'o ke kupunakāne o Mary Kaleikoa ka mea i hana 'āpuka 'ia e Damon, a e kekahi haole paha, akā, he nui nō paha nā mo'olelo like.

E ho'iho'i 'ia ke ea o ka 'āina.

Today's independence activists say their movement is about a nation, not a race. They point out that the Kingdom of Hawaii was multiracial. But in celebrating this holiday, they systematically exclude the hero of the day, a medical missionary with no native blood who served as the King's closest advisor.

Rev. Dr. Gerrit Judd almost single-handedly saved the Kingdom's sovereignty in the days following the British takeover, by writing the successful appeal to the British government. He did so in secret, at risk of his life, by candlelight at night in the Royal mausoleum, at a time when the King was suffering alcoholic depression. When Admiral Thomas sailed into Honolulu Harbor, Dr. Judd marched side by side with the King, leading a huge procession to Kawaiaha'o Church. There Dr. Judd stood beside the King on the church steps and read the English-language petition to the crowd in fluent Hawaiian. Only then did the King give his famous one-line reply: "Ua mau ke ea o ka 'aina i ka pono." See http://tinyurl.com/clw5kov

But today's sovereignty activists are engaged in ethnic cleansing of Hawaii's history, by systematically removing the names of Caucasians like Rev. Dr. Gerrit Judd from the pantheon of heroes of the Hawaiian Kingdom. This is not the only holiday where the activists are doing ethnic cleansing of history. See http://tinyurl.com/3gqgm

Thus today's sovereignty independence activists show their political movement is really about a race and not a nation. They seek independence for a nation of Hawaii in which all races would be included, but everyone lacking native blood would be second-class citizens with severely restricted voting rights and property rights. So anyone who attends this year's celebration at Thomas Square should ask the organizers "Why are you forgetting the hero of Ka La Ho'iho'i Ea, Rev. Dr. Gerrit Judd?"

Ken, thanks for the history lesson and yes Judd deserves a lot of kuddos. He seems to be an honorable person, in this particular incident, with love for his country. But I must assume your posts are not in any way a justification for the illegal overthrow. You Ken and I know that infact these islands is an occupied sovereign nation. Furthermore, I don't see Dr. Keanu Sai advocating "everyone lacking native blood would be second-class citizens",

Is not Thomas Square where the festivities are held named after someone who was not Hawaiian? Dr. Judd did not work alone. He had others (Hawaiians) who worked along with him. Why this constant blathering? The Kingdom had subjects of other races, but very few in contrast to Hawaiians. The people who overthrew the kingdom were not multicultural though, were they. It was a straight white ticket. BTW: We were not serfs then. The American capitalist system is making serfs of us all.

Dave it seems you went of track in responce to Notawanabe. His post reads "The Kingdom had SUBJECTS of other races". Not "The kingdom had PEOPLE of other races". You did not accurately respond to Notawanabe. This may have been an honest oversight or maybe not. Was it an intentional oversight so you may make an argument totally unrelated responce to Notawanabe or was it an honest oversight?

If there is something I said that was not factual, please try to correct my mistakes. I made a mistake once back in 1967. But, seldom make mistakes about facts. So, where was I wrong holokanaka?

So North Korea is capitalist? Have you told the State Department that yet?

Dave, I am not questioning your facts but I am questioning you response to Notawanabe. The point was subjects(citizens) not the whole of the population. In my opinion that required a whole different response than what you gave. If a question inregards to the make-up of the citizenry of another sovereign nation you would not respond with the make-up of the whole population but only the "citizens".

First, I am not attacking anyone I am questioning. Second, your response to Notawanabe again was off base. He clearly stated "subjects" not total population. Subjects included according the so called constitution of 1887 (bayonet constitution) clearly states the only people that had a right to vote, therefore "subjects", were Hawaiian, american, and european and their decendants of course with income and/or property requirements. Again you did not make a proper response to the post. And by the way that is the constitution that as, you put it, "an unrightness Queen announced she was going to throw out the existing constitution she had sworn to uphold".
