Historical Perspective

The following history tells how thru poor immigration laws the Hawaiian people fell from truth and lost their creed, their race, their land and ultimately their true identity among the other Pacific Nations.

Prior to the arrival of Paao, a priest from Japan came to the islands in the 13th century, the inhabitants of the Hawaiian Islands lived in a highly organized, self-sufficient, social system, with a sophisticated language, culture, religion and a land tenure that bore a remarkable resemblance to that of the Native Americans First Nations of what is now Canada and the U.S.A. i.e. the Iroquois League, Cherokee, Crow, etc. Paao brought with him a sacred bell and 1420 other gods, the chief of which was the war god ku.

The Japanese immigration was followed by the Chinese in 14th century, then the Spanish and finally Europeans by way of the U.S. In total disagreement with and opposition to our creed of Alo-ha balance and respect for one another and the land, a cast system developed, fighting ensued and the monarchical government of the Hawaiian Islands was established in 1810 by His Majesty King Kamehameha I.

These kings and nobles 1840 constitution uses the word “subjects” twice therein. Thus, the sacred balance of equality and care was eroded by an newly established dynasty. Under this new Kingdom of Hawaii, with its nobles, the Hawaiian ania (land, earth mother), once maintained by the Hawaiian people as their Kin-dom, was slowly and by design sectioned off and sold to foreigners and their corporations.

Although the U.S. army started slaughtering the indigenous, first nations peoples of the Americas and taking their land in 1830, Hawai’i's kings and nobles turned a blind eye and maintained their 1826 treaty relations with the de facto U.S. corporation.

Then in 1898 this slaughter by U.S. navy/pirates came to their door and by force of arms stole their land.

Although we had other treaties with Belgium in 1862; Bremen in 1851; Denmark in 1846; France 1846 and 1857; Germany in 1879; Great Britain in 1836, 1846 and 1851; Hamburg in 1848; Hong Kong (Colony of Great Britain) in 1884; Italy in 1863; Japan in 1871 and 1886; Netherlands in 1862; New South Wales (Colony of Great Britain) in 1874; Portugal in 1882; Russia in 1869; Samoa in 1887; Spain in 1863; the Swiss Confederation in 1864; Sweden and Norway in 1852; Tahiti (Protectorate of France) in 1853; none came to Hawai’i’s aid… proving, “What goes around comes around.”


What is a race and creed of a people without their God given kuli-ana to the ma-lama, the aina, their reciprocal dominion?


A well planned, very slow ethnic cleansing occurs… it is called genocide.

24 years after Hawaii’s overthrow Lili’uokalani wrote, "I could not turn back the time for the political change, but there is still time to save our heritage. You must remember never to cease to act because you fear you may fail.

The way to lose any earthly kingdom is to be inflexible, intolerant and prejudicial. Another way is to be too flexible, tolerant of too many wrongs and without judgment at all. It is a razor¹s edge. It is the width of a blade of pili grass. To gain the kingdom of heaven is to hear what is not said, to see what cannot be seen, and to know the unknowable, that is Aloha.

All things in this world are two; in heaven there is but one." (Liliuokalani 1917) Today it’s illegal to use many of our sacred plants for food and healing. After being sprayed with toxic chemicals many of our valuable, sacred plants are no longer edible due to toxins absorbed and their resultant forced mutations to survive. Under occupation it is illegal for our healers to use their ancient, spiritual healing methods.

Traveling to work in our own covered wagon / conveyance now requires a license. The best lands for growing crops are now owned by foreign corporations experimenting with and using toxic chemicals allegedly to increase yield. Foreigners fish and harvest our sacred waters of vital fish without limit. The nationality or political status of a person belonging to the Hawaiian Kingdom was termed a "Hawaiian subject."

Native Hawaiians became subjects of the Kingdom as a consequence of the unification of the islands by Kamehameha I at the turn of the eighteenth century. Since then Hawai'i became a constitutional corporation, foreigners were capable of becoming Hawaiian nationals through naturalization or asylum. Under the naturalization laws of the Kingdom foreigners who resided in the Hawaiian Islands for five years could apply to the Minister of Interior for naturalization, whereby "...every foreigner so naturalized, shall be entitled to all the rights, privileges and immunities of a Hawaiian subject."

Now, under occupation, we are subjects of the U.S. Corp operating on our aina by deceit and “force of arms.” However, as proof, note the following words from North American, Magna Carta statesmen were written when there will still 500 plus indigenous, first people nations present there; and they still apply today. “

When in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation." Jefferson

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness." Penn
