'O Kana'iolo 'ala'ala palu paha ka pololei

Na Kekeha Solis

POSTED:



Synopsis: The testimonies shared at the Native Hawaiian Recognition meetings truly proved that the Native Hawaiian Roll Commission, Kana'iolowalu, is not working for what the people want.

 

'Akahi nō a pau ka hālāwai hō'ike mana'o hope loa a ke aupuni pekelala o 'Amelika Hu Pū 'Ia i mālama iho nei i ka Pō'alua nei. He mau hālāwai ia kahi e hō'ike ai i ka mana'o no ke komo 'ana o 'Amelika Hui Pū i loko o ka hana e pa'a ai ke aupuni kū'oko'a o ka lāhui Kanaka Maoli o Hawai'i nei. A 'o kekahi mea maika'i o ia mau hālāwai, ua mōakāka, 'a'ole makemake 'ia nā mana'o o 'Amelika Hui Pū ma ke kūkulu hou 'ana i ke aupuni a ua 'ike maka nā 'elele o ke aupuni pekelala.

A no kona 'ano a me kona mau pahuhopu e kū nei, e aho paha kona kapa 'ia 'ana 'o Kana'iolo 'ala'ala palu, no ka mea, he mea ia e holo ai kahi 'ōlelo kahiko, 'o ia ho'i, “Ahu ka 'ala'ala palu.” A 'o ka mana'o o ia 'ōlelo mai nā kūpuna mai, 'a'ohe waiwai iki o kahi mea. A pēlā nō 'o Kana'iolowalu e kū nei. 'O ka mana'o o olowalu, 'o ia ka hana pū 'ana, ke kani 'ana o nā leo he nui lehulehu i ka wā like, a me ka mana'o like paha, a no ka pahuhopu like nō paha.

'A'ole loa. A no laila e kau a'e nei kahi inoa hou ma luna, 'o ia ho'i, 'o Kana'iolo 'ala'ala palu.

Ho'okahi paha ala e pa'a pono ai ia inoa 'o Kana'iolowalu. A 'o ia ka loli 'ana o kona 'ano, ka hana a me nā pahuhopu, a like loa me ka mana'o o ka hapanui loa o nā kānaka i hō'ike mana'o aku nei ma ia mau hālāwai. Inā pēlā, a laila, he olowalu nō paha.

Of course the latest so called "roll" is a complete failure. It's just all made up. Maybe, no one really knows but OHA, some 30,000 folks out of a possible 500,000 that claim to have at least one drop of magic blood, actually signed it. The rest were names from other lists that were just dumped onto this list to save face because of poor participation. So, with only 6% of the possible names actually willing to take the time to sign, it is obvious that folks today are tired of the activists( Royalists and Tribalists) trying to tell them what they want. Could it possibly be that they are happy with the way things are? OHA claimed originally that they were going to stay neutral and have a "hands off" policy when it comes to "nation building". They have done nothing less that have a full "hands on" policy. Hiring and funding the "roll" workers, and conducting meetings. With the split in direction of the board itself OHA doesn't know whether they are coming or going. Most of the board are Indian Tribalists with Machado banging the drum. Then CEO Crabbe announces that he is a Royalist and has bought into the David Sai "if this then that" mumbo jumbo that the "Kingdom still lives" and goes rogue writing letters to John Kerry asking if it is true! That should have been the end of him, but again to save face, they plod on instead of dismissing him immediately. Now, with a house divided they try to continue the façade of unity that is obviously not there, in a direction that they don't know themselves, because they have no compass.

I was very pleased to see the massive opposition to the Kana'iolowalu process at those 15 hearings by the Department of Interior. One translation for "Kana'iolowalu" is "conquest by swarming." And that's exactly what happened at those hearings, with so many people coming together to say "'a'ole."

Too bad Kekeha Solis singled out Kaleikoa Kaeo for praise. That guy is a loudmouth fast-talking wannabe terrorist.

I'm sending emails to several leaders of the Indian tribes located near the 4 places on the mainland where DOI will hold 4 more public hearings, to ask for their help to oppose the creation of a phony Hawaiian tribe. A Hawaiian tribe could cause serious damage to their own genuine tribes in two ways: The Hawaiian tribe could open casinos right in their own back yards competing against their own casinos; and a Hawaiian tribe with as many as 527,000 members (Census 2010) would grab a huge amount of dollars from a shrinking federal budget for Indian benefits.

I'm writing testimony which looks like it will end up with 12 sections totaling close to 100 pages, directly replying to several of the questions asked by the Department of Interior advance notice of proposed rulemaking. I'll submit my testimony on August 15, in honor of this year's date when we celebrate Statehood Day.

Here's more information about how to submit testimony:

You should probably write your comments beforehand, and then copy/paste them into the box to avoid the time limit. And if your comments are longer than 5000 characters (not words, but characters -- quite short!) then write your comments as a separate document and make it an attachment.

(Two minutes are not enough for the people to express their opinion at the Native Hawaiian Recognition Meetings. The people only expressed their anger at the Annexation. Thus, surprised I was that you reached quickly an opinion, given that their testimony was so brief.)
