Maopopo iā kākou ka mäkia o ke aupuni 'o Hawai'i, 'o ia ho'i, "Ua mau ke ea o ka 'āina i ka pono". Eia na'e, maopopo anei ka mo'olelo o ka ho'opuka mua 'ia 'ana o ua mākia nei? Ua poina nō paha i ka hapanui o ka po'e ma Hawai'i nei. Penei nō: i ka lā 25 o Pepeluali, makahiki 1843, ua huki 'ia ihola ka hae Hawai'i e kekahi Kāpena o Pelekania, e Keoki Paulete, a ua lilo ke ea o ko Hawa'i Pae'āina iā Pelekane ma o ka ikaika. Akā, ua hō'ea maila na'e ka 'Akimalala Likeke Tāmaki, a nāna i ho'iho'i ke ea o ka 'āina, a huki 'ia a'ela ka hae Hawai'i i luna ma ke Kuea Tāmaki, a kapa 'ia ho'i kona inoa ma muli o ia hana ho'okahi. A i ia lā, 'o ia ho'i ka Lā Ho'iho'i Ea, ua ho'opuka a'ela ka Mō'ï Kauikeaouli i ua 'ōlelo nei, "Ua mau ke ea o ka 'āina i ka pono". “E ha'i 'ia aku i kā kākou mau pua ke nīnau a'e lākou, 'he aha kēia 'aha'aina?' A laila e ka'ao 'ē 'ia aku paha kona Mo'olelo... a laila, e hau'oli pū paha lākou no kēia lā ke hiki mai i ko lākou kau.” Pēlā maila 'o Mr. James Humphreys ma ka 'aha'aina o Ka Hui Aloha o ka Malu Ulu o Lele, 20 makahiki ma hope o ka lā i huki hou 'ia ai ka Hae i luna. 'A'ole ia 'o ka 'aha'aina ho'okahi i mālama 'ia. Eia na'e, ua mālama 'ia nō ia 'ano 'aha ma nā mokupuni a pau, kahi i mo'olelo 'ia maila nā hana o ia wā nui a me nā mo'olelo o nā ali'i i ke au o ka ho'iho'i ea. Pehea, 'oiai ua hiki mai “ko kākou kau,” ua hau'oli pü anei kākou i ka ho'iho'i ea? I kēia mau lā, ua 'oko'a iki ke 'ano o ka mālama 'ia 'ana o ka Lā Ho'iho'i Ea, a ma kekahi 'ano, ua 'ano like ho'i paha me ko ke au ma mua. I ka makahiki 1985, ua ho'āla hou 'ia ka ho'omana'o 'ana mai i kēia lā ko'iko'i e Dr. Kekuni Blaisdell. He hui mai nō ka po'e 'ōiwi i ke Kuea Tāmaki a mālama 'ia nā papahana Hawai'i like 'ole, a kūkākūkā 'ia ke kumu i ko'iko'i ai kēia lā nui. He mea nani nō ia ma Honolulu nei, eia na'e, ua lawa anei kēia?

No ka Lā Kū'oko'a 'Amelika e mālama 'ia ana ma ka lā 4 o Iulai i kēlā me kēia makahiki, pani 'ia nā wahi moku'āina a pau no ka ho'omana'o 'ana aku i ia lā nui--'o ka panakö 'oe, 'o ke kula 'oe, 'o ka hale leka 'oe, a pēlā aku. Ma kēia pani 'ia 'ana aku o kēia mau wahi e 'ike ana ka lehulehu i ke ko'iko'i o kēia lā nui 'Amelika. No ka Lā Ho'iho'i Ea, pani 'ia anei nā wahi moku'āina a pau no ka ho'omana'o 'ana aku i ia lā nui Hawai'i? 'A'ole loa. He lā ma'amau ka lā 31 o Iulai i kēlā me kēia makahiki ma ka pani 'ole 'ia o nā wahi like 'ole a nānā 'ole paha ka lehulehu i ka nui o ia lā. Mālama 'ia kekahi 'aha ma ke Kuea Tāmaki no ka ho'olaule'a 'ia 'ana o ia Lā Ho'iho'i Ea e like me ko ke au ma mua. 'O ka ho'omaka aku nö ia me ka pule, ke oli, a me ka hana huki hae. Huki 'ia nā hae 'Amelika a Beretania i lalo, a huki 'ia a'ela ka hae Hawai'i i luna. He lā ho'oulu 'ike kēia 'oiai ho'ākoakoa 'ia nā kānaka e hana i nā papahana Hawai'i like 'ole. Maika'i kēia 'aha, akā, 'a'ole 'ike ka lehulehu i ka nui o ka Lā Ho'iho'i Ea 'oiai hämama nā hale like 'ole e like me ka ma'amau. No laila, ke lohe mai kākou i ka mākia kaulana o ke aupuni 'o Hawai'i, 'o ia ho'i, “Ua mau ke ea o ka 'āina i ka pono”, e ho'omana'o pā kākou i ka mo'olelo o ka ho'opuka 'ia 'ana aku o ia mākia. 'A'ole pili ua mäkia nei i ke ola o ka 'āina wale nō, pili nō nei mākia i ke ea o ka lāhui Hawai'i. Lawa anei ka hana no ka ho'omana'o 'ana aku i ka Lā Ho'iho'i Ea i kēia mau lā? 'A'ole paha. He lāhui Hawai'i ko käkou. 'O ka pae 'āina 'o Hawai'i nō ia. E kui lima kākou, e ho'onui 'ike käkou, e ho'omana'o käkou, e mau ka lā nui o ka 'āina i ka pono.

E na haumana heluhelu i keia kolamu: Mai poina 'oukou i na me'e 'ilikea o na la nui o Keia Pae 'Aina ma mua o 1893 -- Gerrit Judd (Ka La Ho'iho'i Ea), William Richards (Ka La Ku'oko'a), ... 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 webpage explores several Hawaiian holidays (both historical and modern) to show how the ethnic cleansing is being implemented. Holidays include Ka La Ho'iho'i Ea (Sovereignty Restoration Day), Ka La Ku'oko'a (Independence Day), Martin Luther King's birthday, the 4th of July, and a newly created Hawaiian memorial day to supplant Christmas. http://tinyurl.com/3gqgm

and mentioning Admiral Richard Thomas above obviously wasn't good enough for you..... but then again, what is? You only come here to complain.

Admiral Thomas was not Hawaiian, he was British. Gerrit Judd and William Richards were subjects of the Hawaiian Kingdom, and they were the Hawaiian heroes of those two holidays.

You claimed ethnic cleansing. Thomas was as white as you are. So what's your point???? As I said in the column from two weeks ago, there is only so much that can be said in one column. You want Kuykendall's entire 3 volume history or you just are not satisfied. Of course, you just come here to complain anyway. So, nothing will make you happy here.

Terii: If only more actual history from Kuykendall was actually applied! However with this form of "History" all other players other than Polynesians are excluded. Here in lies the issue. If any "others" are mentioned they are spoken of in a negative way in order to victmize, stir up racial anger, and divide and conquer.

PS - what a positive thing to say about Admiral Richard Thomas! '' Akā, ua hō'ea maila na'e ka 'Akimalala Likeke Tāmaki, a nāna i ho'iho'i ke ea o ka 'āina, a huki 'ia a'ela ka hae Hawai'i i luna ma ke Kuea Tāmaki, a kapa 'ia ho'i kona inoa ma muli o ia hana ho'okahi. '' and by the way Kenny/Dave just who is the gentleman named MR. JAMES HUMPHREYS in the article and were the comments in the article favorable to him or critical of him. make sure to quote directly from the article as I did. Ooooooh. That's right. You cannot actually read the article to make claims of ethnic cleansing or bad-mouthing white people. Nevermind.

konky cannot argue anymore that these islands is legally part of the united states so now can only write about some of the ha*le heroes/subjects who have helped remedy some problems in the history of these islands to the benefit of the Hawaiians. but konki fails to mention that it was ha*le who created most of the problems in these islands,e.g.-the bayonet (1887) constitution, the so called "revolution" of 1893, the false claim that these islands were legally annexed to the united states, etc.

holokanaka proves every time he writes something that he is a stupid racist. In his racist brain Polynesian kings had nothing to do with events in the 1800's and only "ha*le created most of the problems in these islands". How racist is that?

Terii Kelii: You and the racist holokanaka are the ones that are fixated on "whites" or "ha*les" as he calls them. Neither Ken Conklin or myself mentioned "white" people. It is your racist tendencies and bias that makes you go there. Mr. Conklin only mentions people that are not ethinic polynesians. Your hatred for "white" people is showing Terii. You have exposed yourself for what you are!

chief joker jr, I am not fixated on "whites". I only post here what has been shown to be the facts and truth as shown by recent research of a few honorable people, source documents, and the law.

Perhaps we could have "Massacre Day" where we reenact the slaughter of the Ohauans by Kamehameha I with his guns and cannon, and finalizing the day with the throwing of hundreds of innocent beaten Oahuans off the pali in order to steal the island for himself. Maybe a day called "No more Idol Worship Day" were we commemorate the burning of all idols and mythical gods as ordered by Kamehameha II, (maybe sort of a "Burning Man" thing with bonfires around the State). We could have a "Great Mahele Day" celebrating the day Kamehameha III, "The Great Capitalist" forever changed the islands from a tributary and communal exchange system of production and distribution to wage labor, private ownership of land, and an exchange economy based on money---in short capitalism. We could have a holiday based on Kamehameha IV's first speech to a joint session of the legislature calling for English to be spoken in the Islands! Maybe even a "Sell the Kingdom Day" were we commemorate the vast area of island lands sold for personal enrichment, like Niihau, and Lanai for example. We could have a "Opium Day" were we could recognize Kalakaua's being caught taking bribes from Chinese business men in order to obtain permits to sell opium. Or how about a "Break the Treasury Day' were we celebrate Kalakaua's wild spending sprees and under handed business deals like his coinage fraud scandal. Oh this "Holiday" thing could get quite fun. I think the writers have stumbled on to something here!

eh chief joker jr. thanks for the holiday suggestions. I have some suggestions also, holiday celebrating the non legal ratification of a constitution (bayonet-1887 constitution), non revolution but a conspiracy of overthrowing a neutral and sovereign friendly nation-jan 17, 1893, and a non-annexation treaty of 1898. anxious awaiting your response. oh and by the way, "you are a racist" in getting old. I am sure you can come up with a more original than "you are a racist".

Can't you come up with something other than blaming "ha*les" for all your ills. And, must you always find a way to speak your sovereignty kook frindge talking points? Boring. The time to prtest all that nonsense has long pasted. You also forgot to include the unanimously voted request by the Polynesian dominated Territorial Legislature in 1903 to become a full State of the U.S. Too bad it took another fifty years to happen, huh? Oh well, I guess good things just take time.

I am not just blaming or protesting the ha*le I am stating facts. The fact that these islands are still a Sovereign Nation can be found in the fact that the Hawaiian Kingdom was allowed to file a complaint in the UN security Councel against the us, a protest and demand filed with the General Assembly of the UN, and Hawaiian Kingdom Instrument of accession to the Jurisdiction of the International Criminal Court with the UN Secretary General in New York. remember joker only a recognized Independant Nation can file proceedings in the UN.

Everything is "illegal" to your sovereignty kook fringe mind. Of course nothing has ever been found to be "illegal" but you call everything that even though it is incorrect. It is only your attempt to sway the minds of the victimes you target. You poor little racist holokanaka.
