Aunty Gladys Grace was great for more than just teaching her art of weaving. She taught that anyone may practice their culture any time they like, that is if they really want to, in this Great State of the United States of America.

You mean like practicing the culture of slavery of Africans, denying them equal rights after liberation, and blocking programs to improve their low status that the white is right racists like yourself dealt them? Yup, that is practicing Kenny/dave's culture in the United States.

Your alterego keeps bringing up "white" Hawaiian nationals, but you don't say anything critical to yourself, er ummm I mean, him about that. So clearly, one.... more.... time.... your sense of logic lacks both sense and logic. Vis-a-vis your intellect, It's either nature or nuture, but both ways it is your parents' fault.

Even if I were to believe that you are not the same person, by your own admission you espouse his ideology, AND you have said basically the same thing yourself before. You have only negativity to give and therefore you get in return what you give.

Go ahead! Who's stopping you, you Whte Is Right Racist? Look, I have a diploma in this stuff. You do not. You are nothing more than a hobbyist in the field, and your personal attacks against Hawaiians and even worse, DEAD Hawaiians, just amplifies the point.

You are nobody's boss around here. So you do not demand answers from anyone, Kenny. I told you that 2 weeks ago. It's on a need to know basis only, and since no one has bothered to tell you, then obviously you don't need to know. buh-bye.

acting government of the Hawaiian Kingdom, headed by Keanu Sai, Ph.D, chairman of council of regency who has been allowed by the International Community to file proceedings in the international realm-proceedings in the International Court of Arbitration, Protest and Demand in the United Nations General Assembly, complaint in the UN Security Councel, accession to the International Criminal Court. so again I ask, when and how did these Islands become part of america. remember joker, america has not filed any opposing arguements presented to the International community in regards to these Islands as a Sovereign Nation even though america has claimed "sovereignty" over these Islands for over one hundred years so you joker or america put up or shut-up.

Oh ya! Sai, the Felon! That's who I want running the show! Haven't you two noticed that nobody comments here but you guys. That's because you are both has beans. Everyone realizes that the U.S. is the best in these scary times. Good luck with convincing people that they should break with the greatest nation on Earth, The United States of America. You are delusional!

calling Sai, an accomplished individual with a Ph.D. after his name a felon is not an arguement its only "name calling". "nobody comments here but you guys". well, and then there is you. "break from the greatest nation" is impossible. you cannot "break" from anything you are not and never was connected to.

You still have not answered my question. And, yes Sai is a convicted felon.

read the proceedings in the UN and and other proceedings in the international realm and you will get your answer that is if you are not afraid of the truth.

Ya, the U.N.. They are a bunch of U.S. jealous haters that will give play time to anyone that speaks bad of the U.S. But, what have they done? Nothing. And, they will continue to do nothing. If Sai scams anymore people with his mortgage scam he will be doing prison time for fraud.

your response answers my question. you are afraid of the truth and probably because the truth will destroy any of your so called arguements. you are afraid or stupid or have the biggest ego in the world.

oooh! ooooh! I got the news for you! I will be teaching Hawaiian language in Mexico City in February! Then they can use it to speak to each other, learn songs and chants, and even practice it on the internet like on facebook, Skype, etc. And we thought Hawaiian is only spoken in the islands. Oh well, so much for that myth, errr uhhh, lie.
