U.S. President Obama
entity State of Hawaii Governor Linda Lingle
entity OHA/Office of Hawaiian Affairs
entity Royal Order of Kamehameha
entity Ahahui Kaahumanu Society
entity Hale o Na Alii
other entities claiming to have alii or standing in our Hawaiian Society, etc.

Royal bloodlines, true bloodlines of Kamehameha, Kamehameha III, Kahekili, Kaumualii, et. als. exist. True landowners including the Crown Land owners exists………the true trustees of Queen Liliuokalani’s trust, etc. exists with stories of genocide, etc.

The entity State of Hawaii FAILS to protect the lives, safety, health of the people – kanaka maoli/aboriginal Hawaiians, their U.S. citizens, foreigners, visitors……….therefore are inept and truly illegal even under their own Constitution……….

The true bloods are here, and the signers of the “covenant ” with the military has no standing and oppositions have been documented by the true bloods…….not the phoney oldies who are NOT alii claiming to sign something that they nothing about…….they are and remain ignorant to the facts and are NOT related to our Royal families…. and they have no authorization to work with the belligerent occupiers to bomb the hell out of of Hawaiian Islands, with the intent to exterminate our good peoples.

OHA is a significant lame ass entity created which utilizes the title “Hawaiian” for any one born in the islands which is a misrepresentation of the true bloods, the true land owners, etc. They are Hawaiians betraying everyone who live, eat, drink off of our Islands……….they are conspirators or co-conspirators against all humankind in our Hawaiian Islands…..and claim to represent our people when they are just an entity created by the belligerent occupier giving “color of law” to their criminal entity that cannot exist due to the premeditation of assuming our Hawaiian Kingdom, our Queen, and support those who defended the international lawbreakers, foreigners (U.S. , England, and the bankers) who did break Permanent Friendship Treaties, and the Laws of Nations ……

They are a mockery to nations who claim Peace……….they do not belong here, are not authorized to use any kind of weapons, toxins, etc. and are in the business of extermination campaign against our good people.

The entity State of Hawaii, OHA/Office of Hawaiian Affairs, City and Counties merely support their moves to kill off all of our good people in the islands………..so, they are not fit to have any kind of government here and legally, morally, can be usurped by their own citizens, etc. The countering moves by their citizens, et. als. includes human rights violations, terror activities, genocide, etc. can also be piggy-backed on claims with our Hawaiian/ aboriginal Hawaiians/kanaka maoli as well. Tourists, all other innocents claims will also be added with the intent to document the U.S. as a terrorist nation along with the Sandanistas, etc. who have taken their case to the World Court and have documented that U.S. is indeed a terrorist nation.

Yes, OHA is in deep kim chee……….Amaral, Apoliona, et. als. have not protected the lives, safety, health of our people in the Hawaiian Islands and will be listed on the genocide activities list, along with all the participants of the illegal document “Covenant/covenant” created by the belligerent occupiers.

Once again, these are the documents showing Premeditation to assume our Hawaiian Islands, Pearl Harbor, our government, our Queen via the following which was found by Shane Lee, a researcher:

The U.S., along with England, and the bankers owes the Hawaiian Kingdom, and our Royal families 500 Trillion dollars per year in gold coins retroactive to 1893….This is also a notice of debt due.

How many aboriginal Hawaiians (that's exactly what Queen Liliuokalani documented us to be) will celebrate a FAKE State IGNORING THE TRUTH!......

Opposition to the Akaka Bill continues...........the Bill covers "Hawaiians"..........don't forget that the Rice vs. Cayetano Case years ago gave recognition to ALL BORN IN THE ISLANDS and recognized as "Hawaiians".......

We are kanaka maoli, "aboriginal Hawaiians" and that's the truth!

Doesn't this 'revisionist history' excite you? lol............it gets lots of people excited nowadays too!

aloha.

TRULY A FAKE STATE WITH PIRATES
Review by Amelia Gora (2010)

Many don't know the activities of Prince Kuhio Kalanianaole and the criminal activities that he engaged in which included the conflict with his Aunt Queen Kapiolani in 1898.

Queen Kapiolani instructed the two (Princes Kuhio and Kawananakoa) to file a deed to lands AFTER she died. They both filed it as soon as they got it.

Queen Kapiolani is on record as having Opposed the Action (see The Pacific Commercial Advertiser/Advertiser, Honolulu, June 28, 1898) "KAPIOLANI ASKS THAT DEED TO PRINCES BE ANNULED".

Court action move in favor of the Pirates (as usual - no justice). Kuhio left.

According to "Wikipedia" Kuhio was part of the British Army in the Boer War (1899 to 1902)....did he participate or was he on the run from the Hawaiian Islands? The following shows his activities according to "Wikipedia":

"In 1901 Kūhiō switched parties and joined the Republicans. He was disillusioned with the lack of progress made by the Home Rule Party, and its control by "radicals". The Republicans eagerly accepted him into the fold. By endorsing the heir to the throne of the Hawaiian kingdom they gained significant support in local communities, and Kūhiō was given a strong leadership position.

Kūhiō was elected delegate to the U.S. Congress in a landslide victory for the Republicans, and helped establish a Republican hold on the legislature. He served from March 4, 1903 until his death, wining a total of ten elections.[7] During this time he instituted local government at the county level, creating the county system still used today in Hawaiʻi. He staffed the civil service positions that resulted with Hawaiian appointees.[citation needed] This move combined the political patronage system of nineteenth century American politics with the traditional Hawaiian chiefly role of benificiently delegating authority to trusted retainers[citation needed].

In 1903, Kūhiō reorganized the Royal Order of Kamehameha I, which held the first observance of the Kamehameha Day holiday in 1904.[3] He was a founder of the first Hawaiian Civic Club on December 7, 1918.[8] He helped organize a centenary celebration of the death of Kamehameha I in 1919.[9]
The Prince Kūhiō Statue at Waikīkī

In 1919 Kūhiō introduced in Congress the first-ever Hawaii Statehood Act. It would be another 40 years before seeing fruition.

During this period the Hawaiian Homes Commission Act of 1921 was signed by President Warren Harding. Despite Kūhiō’s wishes, the Act contained high blood-quantum requirements, and leased land instead of granting it fee-simple, creating a perpetual government institution. This act and the others that followed continue to be controversial in contemporary Hawaiian politics, and have been used to justify more recent race-based legislation like the Akaka Bill.[10] He served on the first Hawaiian Homes Commission starting on September 16, 1921.[9]

Kūhiō died on January 7, 1922. His body was interred near his royal family at the Royal Mausoleum known as Mauna ʻAla in Nuʻuanu on the island of Oʻahu.[11] He is memorialized by streets, beaches, the Prince Kūhiō Plaza Shopping Center, and the Prince Kuhio Federal Building named in his honor. Prince Kūhiō Day on March 26 is a state holiday that honors Kūhiō’s birth.[3]

*****************************************************************************************************************

Prince Kuhio tried to have Queen Liliuokalani declared incompetent when she signed a will.

In Queen Liliuokalani’s will, she denied that she signed a Trust with Archibald Cleghorn, Curtis Iaukea, and William O. Smith.

In 1918, Prince Kuhio took an out of Court settlement to the claims of Queen Liliuokalani’s opposition to a claimed Trust.

Research continues.

It is important that these important facts be shared with our family(ies), friends, and all around the World.

Queen Liliuokalani’s issues remains unresolved.

Pirates/Prostitute Pirates include well known persons in the Hawaiian Islands, who were treasonous, criminal deviants posing as friends, and claiming to help our Hawaiian people but were in actuality criminals who aided the PIRATES OF THE PACIFIC: Charles Reed Bishop and Friends, the Warring U.S., England, bankers who premeditated, criminally, wrongfully dethroned our Queen Liliuokalani from a neutral, non-violent, friendly nation in 1893.

The bottom line is that he was an evil SOB who did much criminal wrongs affecting my family directly. And aren’t you even a little bit interested in how a WORM such as himself, did EVILS to aboriginal Hawaiians including Queen Liliuokalani gets highly praised by people such as yourself through carefully planned Propaganda.

” With crap like this, how can one be proud to be a Hawaiian? Dig, Dirt, Dig, Dirt, Dig, Dirt – ALL MUDDY CRAP! “

oh, you’re addressing everyone born in the islands—”a Hawaiian” —-due to the Court Case RICE vs. CAYETANO which makes anyone born in the Hawaiian Islands, a Hawaiian.

What do researchers do………intense researchers “Dig, Dirt, Dig, Dirt, Dig, Dirt – ALL MUDDY CRAP! ” and “DIG, DIG, DIG, DIG, DIG – whether good or bad is part of stuff being looked for”……obviously you are not a researcher.

The Genocide Activities List is certainly active to this date.

Thank you for sharing that you are a Statehood supporter.

Your statement reflects the facts that TRUTH/Truth hurts.

I’m about uniting kanaka maoli/aboriginal Hawaiians, and not all Hawaiians especially those who were treasonous such as KUHIO KALANIANAOLE, KAWANANAKOA, et. als…… as to our leader and followers……… it’s really none of your business……because many of us are the ones who actively attend meetings and such defending our ancestors Kalaniopuu, Kamehameha, Kahekili, Kaumualii, Nuuanu, Kanekapolei, King Lunalilo, King Kalakaua, Queen Liliuokalani, et. als. and support the claims of our families……..

In a spiritual sense, I follow my ancestors……..and I’ve been told by several elderly people that I am surrounded by many Alii when at the Archives, etc. And it’s nice to know that too.

Now, slip back under your rock and show up only to defend our Hawaiian Islands from the toxic, depleted uranium issues……….you’ve fallen short from defending your home, the air that you breathe, etc.

Actually, there are three categories: the Good; the Bad; and the Ugly…regardless of oneʻs ethnicity. Of course there are two-sides of a story. History is in the mind of the interpreter relying on concept, perception, and interpretation. Fact-gathering is crucial in weeding out what is and what isnʻt; but only to a degree. Understanding human nature and thought-processes give a bit of insight to a personʻs actions. The dynamics of the particular time may be variable and different than what we experience today. What was the mind-thought process at that time? Then again, some behavior never changes.

The concern is the ramifications that spring from the actions of a person then and how it affects us today. I believe the info shared is for one to become aware of the dynamics that attribute to the different layers of issues present today. One can make their own mind up after evaluating what is being presented. If it fits; keep it. If it doesnʻt; discard it.

Factual documented actions give us pause to evaluate the situation and the more of the same data from different sources can bring us closer to what actually happened in the past. How are we to decifer what actions occurred if we donʻt expose it to review and place it properly in its true light?

This doesnʻt sound like petty Peyton Place neighborhood gossip or celebrity gossip; it a national issue that affect the lives of the community as a national with political functionary guidelines, what is established by law and what perversions take place. Political figures do put themselves out there for criticisms because of their public works and will be judged by their activism and conduct. Thatʻs the nature of the beast whether we want to hear it or not.

Aloha Amelia,

I understand the shock which is why I took you to my dad’s place. So that one can stare into the eyes of the truth about Kuhio and the whole dirty filty game.

How Oahu ‘Niaupio’s’ survived is beyond the very essence of my bones. I’m so shocked too. But, the Kuhio realization came a long time ago for me.

It is so sad that the phonies intentions/un continue the lie that we thought was outside of our own people. There is no way that the US military could exist to the point of committing genocide with our people today and continue to eliminate our children.

I sometimes wonder–what would have been better impact or induced? I will not go there and spend the rest of my life however, short or long exposing the very ‘particle’ that are/will killing our children.

I was with some people two days ago, and these witches (kanaka’s) said, “people die everyday”. This was in reference to the next sweep where I am expecting a larger number of deaths. The true ‘niaupio’s’ would never allow children to suffer so greatly. Liliu, felt safe with my grandmother and tutu kelileiki.

I’m so glad you shared this very meaninful place with me.

We are the rose and the rest are thorns..which is why we still grow her rose bush in our yard. Many kailuan Haoles still preserve her original rose bush in their yards. Much love and aloha Joshua acting up so gottah go much love

amelia,

When I read Bernice Piilani (Cook) Irwin works, I see the same trail of posion. but, fortunately she has integrity for historical place and things for I am able to decipher from her reason to publish her fictional stories and that was to support the ‘women vote’ which is Kuhio, statehood and to debunk the Queen. Which in my mind is the ultimate betrayal that a women could do to another. Talk about misues of ‘equality’ in first person.

It is funny when you hit the head of the nail, wow the attacks comes on ten fold.

When I talk about the bloodquantum Maoliworld drips with bloodletting. But, who the hell cares–the main thing is one house at a time gets built by the hands of the women that is going to bare the children for the Hawaiian Kingdom-and her Queens Nation and not a fools group.

People talk against the Akaka Bill, but when it comes to DHHL what a flip around. What I see too is when you hit the top of the pile of dodo–the Akaka Bill turns everyone into Hawaiians as in Californians. Pass the toilet paper.

Your research is important and I applaud you for having the guts to search and publish the dodo for all to read.
What’s so frustrating is our children born today will not be able to live in Hawaii. A sad awakening. That’s Statehood and it’s real factual intent. Love much

hi Kaohi,

several have stated that they’re amazed the kind of information that has come out……..the truth, a revisionist history and they love it…………..some make comments about how they wouldn’t want to walk near me……….tell them that’s why I wear white……that way, the blood will be seen if someone tries to harm me………….then again, there’s people with paparazzi cameras around, and I kinda like that….lol.

my mom had said that during her days —she and her family hid when her tutu said “hide” and everyone had a special place to go……her position was in the mango tree……whenever the haole would go to see her tutu and they would look for anyone, amidst the barking of eight (8+) dogs…… my mom stated that many “had their tongues pulled out if they talked”………….these are issues of genocide…..the words are out…………through writings, internet, etc.

many at the Archives

and the Bureau of Conveyances actually ask where I was when I don’t show up….lol……….

several have asked me to do a screen play and have the true history complete with the truth about Princess Kaiulani………..because she had a part with Kawananakoa and her father Archibald Cleghorn, who had two other daughters from an “illegitimate relationship”……….yep, much ugliness but that’s part of the truth………including the parts where the true bloodlines are thrown into Kalaupapa leper colony and people claiming to be their families show up to “sell” properties……… I’ve even called claimed family members and they did not want to talk and asked to not call them…….to date, it appears that they are criminals too…………yes, roses we are………..very hard to find……….and have joined up with a family member whose ancestor fought with mines in court about 137 years ago…..we are now together…. good stuff……….and very educated too…..which makes a diff!

yes, our defenders are from a select kind…………not all are……….resistance especially those from the Big Island………but we have many friends even on the Big Island and many are watching and know who certain trouble makers are as well……yes, we have many friends too………

aloha nui.

amelia,

I lived in Hamilton library for almost ten years of my life researching and I did what little time I had to search the connections between the soil and multiplying. Already having the experience on the soil and all babies born, I wanted to seek out the possibility of a future in Hawaii.

Old people that are not ma’a to anything outside their little carpet don’t get that their needs to be a future ‘thinking’. We had that with our Na Kupuna, and yes they may have departed, but they are still with us. Much of our work is to listen to our ancestors that were true leaders of our people. Yeah, the evil lurks near–granted. The point is we work everyday 24 hours, not just sprinkles every now.

Recently, I was co-teaching in a classs and these children will be visiting John Burns Medical school in hopes they find interest in becoming a Medical Doctor. Or, CNA for the cheap pay, low jobs to care for the sick and dying because Waianae is the dump site for Waste Streaming. We need many generations of Doctors and RNs in our Na Kanaka culture, just like Cuba did eventhough they exited Cuba for the US and elsewhere. At least they have Cubian doctors.

I shared about your daughter, and while I was living in the dorm we had five doctors to be –studying together. It was interesting that they were listening intently to what I was saying. But the academy out here are educating for CNA’s not RN nurses.

I don’t know how to get over the walls of history (sell outs), performing artisans (perpetuate selling out) and hitting windmills (waste of energy). I must be nutty to keep on trying. My Na Kupuna was always inclusive, on like myself that fall short of that duty. We have young people that are skillful in the inclusive.

There wit and education takes them further than what we hope to accomplish in our life time.

My eyes see the death and dying among our people and I wish to hell this was not my daily expriences. love much

Amelia,

I didn’t have time to read the other postings, wow!!!!

I went straight to Whatever, Whatever by Shikira and continued on to other songs.

Many Oahu’ians ran to Big Island the Moku of Keawe…basically to get away from their responsibilities …or rest in Pele’s bossom. So very sad, that we work deligently (sp) everyday and without rest sometimes or even resources. My point is thanks for the music…and thanks for sticking to the research …eventhough it is shocking…when I connect to the community..I too get so dam frustrated with the academics. Because when they do publish the community they are authority over their subject has moved on to many levels ahead and all that the academic community can do is recant in general stance.

The Hawaiian sexuality is going to come from a deep black hole stance when the academic community begin to chant their cantations.

I truly don’t know what to say or do. Prostitution on soil comes in many faces and with perpetuational mechanisms. Truly sad!

But, thanks for persistance and sharing your findings on Kuhio…just maybe …someone is listening and reading..especially those in authoritative positions.

I’m getting ready for the sacking of DHHL communities. It should be making headways through the front door real soon. I can see the surrounding communities are well prepared for their ‘hurt locker’ attacks on women and children in Waianae. The outsiders have penetrated through the highways, and have joined the inner communities for their economic gains. It’s just a matter of time. Sorry for being so surperlative here.

Much love and Aloha for researching and sharing the facts with maoliworld.

The Rights of Indigenous People vs. The Rights of Sovereigns in the Hawaiian Kingdom which have gone “under ground”

Diary Entry by Amelia Kuulei Gora (about the author)

Hawaiians are split in remaining Sovereigns or being part of an “indigenous” group which amounts to “useless”, “needless eaters” which promotes their worthlessness and fuel for extermination by the U.S., England, the bankers through the New World Order/One World Order Warmongers.

HAWAIIAN SOUL — Jon Osorio and Randy Borden
Random photos of different sunsets and places in Hawaii.

Hawaiian Music

There are more than 40 groups/governments in our Hawaiian Islands today moving with various ideas, definitions, Kings, Queens, and pirate/conspirator based organizations such as OHA or the Office of Hawaiian Affairs which is an arm of the pirate/ conspirator based entity State of Hawaii supported by the U.S. government, England, the Morgan, and the Bank of England/international bankers.

Some of the groups/governments operate in sync with the conspirator based entity Provisional government, which turned into the Republic of Hawaii, then the Territory of Hawaii, and the Presidential Executive Order government the State of Hawaii.

Others operate with the Rights of Sovereigns in the de jure government that did not go “under ground”.

A few of the groups are set apart from the rest due to their genealogy base, their being descendants of the rulers of the Hawaiian Kingdom/Ko Hwaii Pae Aina including Kamehameha, his siblings, King Kalakaua, and Queen Liliuokalani. These also represent the original House of Nobles, the Royal Families House of Nobles descendants who currently operate as the true landowners, the protectors of kanaka maoli, also known as the “hoaaina”, the konohiki, also known as the “land owners”, et. als.

The following is a brief history of our kanaka maoli/ Hawaiians:

1891 Aug 27 Death of John Owen Dominis. (born March 3, 1832) on August 27, 1891.

1892
Conspirators planned to dethrone Queen Liliuokalani:

– Lorrin Thurston and Benjamin F. Tracy, U.S. Representative met with Thurston in Makua, Oahu on the ‘preliminary contemplation of dethroning the Queen’.

– Dr. Mott-Smith, Lorrin Thurston, Thomas Akaka etals. planned to dethrone Queen Liliuokalani in Washington, D.C.

– May 24. Volney V. Ashford and Robert Wilcox with 18 others were “charged with the crime of treason against the Hawaiian Government” and arrested. “Their object was the overthrow of the existing form of government, by deposing Queen Liliuokalani and establishing a Hawaiian republic.”

Note: It appears that this was a trial run for the January 1893 premeditated plan to dethrone the Queen seven (7) months later or January 1893. See article “Arrests for Treason in Hawaii” in THE NEW YORK TIMES, published June 1, 1892.

– Masons/Freemasons gathered, paraded by the hundreds and celebrated a new building/a Temple and called Honolulu their “home city”. (This happened in December 1892 or a few weeks before dethroning our Queen.)

Note: Masons/Freemasons were set in place to break down Monarchy governments worldwide. Also see the 1822 Secret Treaty of Verona’s goals.

1893 Jan 9 – U.S. /Congress gave a standing order for the U.S. citizens in the Hawaiian Islands to assume Hawaii — which meant to dethrone the Queen. This was a planned/premeditated maneuver to assume land, monies, etc. from a neutral, friendly nation, and an act of war. See New York Times article, “Pearl Harbor Coaling Station, Imperative Necessity that the United States Take Possession” Published on January 9, 1893 – article found by Shane Lee, researcher.

Jan 14 – Queen Liliuokalani announced that she would present a new constitution. This is later withdrawn. Annexation club formed by the Queen’s enemies. U.S. diplomat John Stevens threatened the landing of troops from American warships.

1893. Jan 15

Men from the cruiser BOSTON “poured ashore….to protect American lives and property,” according to United States Minister John L. Stevens. The action came a day before the committee of safety took possession of the government office building and abrogated the monarchy, forcing Queen Liliuokalani from her throne.”

“The “Committee of Safety” was formed and the conspiracy for the immediate dethronement of the Queen took definite shape and began active operations.”

1893 Jan. 16

“Three companies of bluejackets, one of artillery, one of marines, 154 men and 10 officers; with 14,000 cartridges for rifles and the Gatling gun, 1,200 revolver cartridges, and 174 explosive shells for the revolving cannon.” came off the Boston.

Queen Liliuokalani destroyed the Constitution, which gave her authority once more unrestricted by a Constitution which her brother had signed under duress, stress, coercion, usurpation which was dubbed “the Bayonnet Constitution”.

1893 Jan 17
Queen Liliuokalani was illegally dethroned. “Sanford Dole and his committee declared itself the Provisional Government of the Kingdom of Hawaiʻi on July 17, 1893, removing only the Queen, her cabinet, and her marshal from office.” The entity which was neither de facto nor de jure called themselves the Provisional government which was planned/supported by the U.S. 1893 Feb 1

Jan 31. President Benjamin Harrison used his executive order to deny the passing of the bill into law to prosecute “crimes on the high seas”. Congress House and Senate were denied the bill passing into law. Note: Hawaii is “on the high seas”.

Provisional protectorate proclaimed. U.S. flag raised on government buildings. Treaty of annexation written and signed by President Benjamin Harris. The new President, Grover Cleveland, had the treaty withdrawn and sent James Blount, investigator, to inquire into the circumstances of the revolution.

Pirates laws passed by the entity Provisional government under Sanford B. Dole etals., which diminished the rights of kanaka maoli in their own lands. Kanaka Maoli became people with lesser status likened to slaves.

1893 Dec 18 Blount’s report to Cleveland is submitted. Queen Liliuokalani did not return to the throne. Failed.

1894 Jul 4

Because a Provisional government has only a 2-year life the turn to a Republic discussion was made in the Habeas corpus case of Sheldon, editor of a Hawaiian newspaper who printed the near accurate version of the wrongful dethronement of Queen Liliuokalani.

Establishment of the entity Republic. Sanford B. Dole, first President.

The entity Provisional government operating under the directions of the U.S./Congress, proceeded in making a treaty with their own; yet, calling themselves a separate nation.

They were actually conspirators/pirates, treasonous persons claiming to have a lawful right to dethrone the Queen and subjects numbering 40,000 vs. their 3,000 which included paid off supporters who were given $50-$500 each. Therefore, the Pearl Harbor Treaty was based on multiple frauds. See Pearl Harbor Condemnation Case over Pearl Harbor which included a fraud deed by King Kalakaua deeding land to ancestors who died 8-9 years previously.

Freedom of speech was canceled.

Important note: The Constitution of the United States does not follow the flag in its territories, claimed protectorates. Aside from the legal issue that the President and Congress has no jurisdiction outside of the 3-12 mile zone, according to the Constitution “or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press;” is denied to territories, and claimed protectorates. Therefore, the Constitution of the United States does not apply to Hawaii, etc.

1895 Jan 6 Counter-revolution to restore Liliuokalani to throne. Failed.

When Pono and I stood at the top side of Waipio, I remembered the old lady in a document walking down the cliff to go and pick opihi. With our lunch in my hand I walked over to him and told him, I wanted to make the same journey down. He looked at me with stun in his eyes, and asked are you sure? I said yes, with my look of determination that he has seen and experienced so many times with me. He looked back at me with disbelife and realized how serious I was and no sense trying to talk me out of it. When I started walking down the trail, all I could think about was the old lady and her determination to pick opihi to feed her children.

I believe that same determination is in our Na Kanaka spirit since 750 AD, it had to be for I was not well and able to make that walk. But nothing was going to stop me..nothing.

Pono was so generous with is sense of calm one that he gives to me when I’m being a wild thing. Much aloha for Kawaipuna and hele on…..

1895 Jan 6 Counter-revolution to restore Liliuokalani to throne. Failed.

1895 Jan 7 Queen Liliuokalani “was arrested for no specific charged offense, taken by force, and confined alone in the Iolani Palace….She was told that those she dearly loved, personal friends, were awaiting execution, and the only act which would save their lives was an act of abdication to be signed by her…To save those she loved she executed the document you publish. It was an act consummated under the plainest kind of duress, void even had it been legally executed.”

Ref: Washington Evening Star article “The Republic of Hawaii” purchased off the internet from a private owner in Greece.

1895 Jan 24 Liliuokalani signs statement of abdication. She remained under duress, stress, coercion, and usurpation. She directed her subjects to maintain a neutral, friendly, non-violent status, even though many were beaten, killed, thrown on Kalaupapa, Molokai and declared lepers. The issues of genocide remain, the issues of piracy(ies) on the high seas remain, along with theft, conspiracies, treasonous activities, etc.

1895 Oct 2 The Queen was tried and convicted of treason. While sentenced to confinement in her room in Iolani Palace, she composed “The Queen’s Prayer.”

Princess Poomaikelani died. She had called her a daughter. Her descendants/heirs descendants exist today.

8/2010: Princess Poomaikelani’s administrator was Queen Kapiolani.

1896 Fall Liliuokalani freed by the entity Republic and remained under duress, coercion, usurpation, and stress.

1898 Jul 8 American claimed annexation claimed disregarding the 40,000 subjects oppositions to Annexation.

The true letter of Opposition to Annexation was found in the Maryland National Archives by researcher Kiliwehi Kekumano.

Note: Since 1929, a fraud/genocide evidence letter of Opposition has been sitting in the Archives, Honolulu, Oahu left for people to believe to be true. A comparative study of both documents shows the lies, deceit, frauds maintained vs. the truth.
1898 Aug 12 U.S. flag raised in Honolulu. Hawaiian flag lowered. Liliuokalani remains secluded at Washington Place. Queen Liliuokalani remained under duress, usurpation, coercion, and usurpation.

Update 08/2010: Queen Kapiolani gave a deed to Princes Kuhio and Kawananakoa. They were instructed to file it AFTER she died.

Princes Kuhio and Kawananakoa filed the deed right away.

Queen Kapiolani publicly opposed the filed deed. She wanted the deed to be annulled/ nulled and voided.

Prince Kawananakoa and Princess Kaiulani planned to marry after the deed of Queen Kapiolani was cleared up.

Princess Kaiulani was engaged to T.H. Davies son George previously. The NEW YORK TIMES covered the fact that the Princess was planning to marry Prince Kawananakoa.

Princess Kaiulani was on payroll with the PG’s, the Provisional Government.

Death of Princess Ka”iulani. (born October 16, 1875). Descendants of her heirs exist.

1899. Queen Kapiolani died. Her heirs descendants exist today.

1900. Organic Act, ‘An Act to Provide a Government for the Territory of Hawaii’ was passed by the usurpers. Only Republic of Hawaii citizens who were declared to be citizens of the United States and citizens of the Territory of Hawaii were covered. U.S. citizens (relocated) declared to be citizens of the Territory of Hawaii.

All persons/kanaka maoli who signed the Kue Petition opposing Annexation were excluded from the Organic Act.

Note: Alex Luka researcher.

Archibald Cleghorn husband of Princess Likelike died. He was a Mason/Freemason, an organization set in place to break down Monarchy governments worldwide.

Articles favoring Whites documented. Example: “Hawaii Wants the White Man” appeared in the Mid-Pacific Magazine, 1911, see the Main Library, Honolulu, Oahu, Hawaii.

Charles Reed Bishop, banker, lawyer, sugar plantation owner, investor, pirate, husband of Bernice Pauahi died. He had only a life interest.

Queen Liliuokalani “said to me she did not sign a Trust Deed but had made a will and Mr. Damon and Cecil Brown were the witnesses to it” stated Samuel Parker on oath.

Ref: Archives, Honolulu, Oahu, Hawaii records: First Circuit Court – Equity Case 2009 Jonah Kuhio Kalanianaole, Petitioner vs. Liliuokalani, et al.

Update 08/2010: Prince Kuhio attempted to declare Queen Liliuokalani incompetent.

Queen Liliuokalani documented in her will that she did not sign a Trust Deed with Damon, Smith and Iaukea. She documented that her administrator Colburn would be able to make corrections.

1908 – June 2. Prince David Kawananakoa died.

1915 – June 7. Charles Reed Bishop, PIRATE OF THE PACIFIC, banker, plantation owner, Mason/Freemason died.

Charles Reed Bishop, C.F. Pfluger/J.C. Pfluger, and C. H. Lewers were Trustees of Excelsior Lodge No. 1(Masons and Freemasons) in Honolulu 1862 as documented in the Bureau of Conveyances Liber 15 page 188.

This document verifies the direct connection of current U.S. President Obama to the Masons and Freemasons from the Hawaiian Islands because the Pfluger’s are listed in Charles Booth’s Probate and part of the families which had a connection to the BANK OF HAWAII in the Hawaiian Islands. President Obama’s grandmother Madelyn Dunham, first female Vice President of BANK OF HAWAII.

*on a personal note – I did report descendant of Pfluger, Booth to the Sheriff’s department today August 23, 2010 at 3:30 PM because at 2:35 PM, Jimmy Pfluger did threaten me bodily harm…. and said why are you looking at my family? previously, he denied OBAMA as being part of his family, but the Charles Booth Probate at the Archives shows the Dunham, Pfluger and other names.

The connection of Pfluger, Charles Reed Bishop, and the banking connection with OBAMA proves that they are indeed one and the same family group which has been defrauding the Royal families.

This report is also being sent to the Honolulu Police Department for the Genocide Activities List for Jimmy Pfluger who has also been documented with the entity State of Hawaii’s Sheriff’s Department with a complaint and evidence of the document Liber 15 page 188 which is evidence of a distinct connection showing Masons/Freemasons, Pfluger, Charles Reed Bishop direct connect.

Jimmy Pfluger was extremely pissed when I showed Guy Bishaw, title researcher and Pfluger the book……..earlier, I told him that he was part of Obama’s family and he denied it….suggested that he go over to the Archives to pull up Charles Booth’s Probate….because there was a Trust created.

He snapped and told me to stop looking at his families things…told him I wasn’t looking for the Pfluger name but just happened on it when going through the early books. He said that if I had a land issue to try to sue him….told him why should I? I’m a Fraud buster…..and besides his family was all over our families lands…..he said I was harrassing him after he had unleashed his snake venom about how he could do things to me, etc……told him “are you threatening me?” “want me to file you on the police report?”………..half an hour later, I decided to document a complaint because the incident happened in the Bureau of Conveyances…………btw everyone, Pfluger does title research for his family and himself, looking to grab up more lands belonging to kanaka maoli….. and it was his grandfather who was imprisoned recently and released via the bail bondsman who has a television show………his grandfather was imprisoned for deaths due to the flooding from the dam in Kauai……and he had an early release.

Masons/Freemasons were set in place to break down Monarchy governments worldwide.

See my website http://ameliagora.wordpress.com/ regarding the U.S. Presidents and OBAMA’s connection to the bankers, the Masons/ Freemasons, his connection/his families connection to various U.S. Presidents, Kings of England, and movers of the New World Order/One World Order.

1917 – Nov. 11. Death of Queen Liliuokalani at Washington Place. She was given a state funeral and her remains interred in the Royal Mausoleum.

The request to utilize Kamehameha’s cape for her funeral services was denied. Private invitations to attend her funeral was made, attended by the treasonous persons, limited kanaka maoli/Hawaiian Nationals.

(Note: who knows what kind of rituals, or dirty acts done about bodies with Masons/Freemasons attending – especially since they do unholy rituals…..see youtube.com for more information.)

Queen Liliuokalani was not paid for the use of the Crown Lands, etc.

1918. Prince Kuhio took an out of court settlement on the claims that Queen Liliuokalani did not sign a Trust Deed with Damon, etals. He received Queen Liliuokalani’s home in Wakiki, Oahu.

1920. Women suffrage/right to vote occurred in the U.S. Women and children were no longer viewed as property.

Update 08/2010: Prince Jonah Kuhio Kalanianaole went to Washington to ask for Statehood. See NEW YORK TIMES article http://query.nytimes.com/mem/archive-free/pdf?_r=1&res=9400E7D9…

THE NEW YORK TIMES, TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 3, 1920

Prince Kuhio made an agreement with Colburn. Colburn did not follow through with Queen Liliuokalani’s issues on her claim that she did not sign a Trust Deed with Damon, Smith, Iaukea et. als.

Brief Background

Prince Kuhio had made an agreement with a descendant of an adopted child of her hanai, the true Trustee which was created in 1872, in exchange for money, land till her death.

Prince Kuhio and Kawananakoa passed Power of Attorneys between themselves, the Trustees of Queen Kapiolani’s Trust deeded interest to Kuhio, then the fractional interest of the agreement made with a descendant of an adopted child of Queen Liliuokalani’s was transferred to the criminal Trust after they deeded claimed Trust (fictitious) lands to Kuhio.

Princess Kaiulani, Prince Kuhio and Prince Kawananakoa are part of the characters entered in PIRATES OF THE PACIFIC II: Charles Reed Bishop and Friends (2010) and entered on the Genocide Activities File with the Honolulu Police Department 08/2010.

Research incomplete.

1922 – January 7 – Prince Jonah Kuhio Kalanianaole died.

1959. U.S. President Proclamations No. 3300 “Admission of the State of Hawaii Into the Union by the President of the United States of America” was signed.

Dwight D. Eisenhower signed the clause “…twenty-first day of August in the year of our Lord nineteen hundred and fifty-nine, and of the Independence of the United States of America the one hundred and eighty-fourth.”

Note: It appears that the President at the time did maneuver in bringing about a new entity called ‘the Independence of the United States of America the one hundred and eighty-fourth.”

The President and Congress under their duties documented by the Supreme Court Justices of the U.S. have only a “3-12 mile limitation” and they have no authority or jurisdiction outside the contiguous U.S. Research incomplete.

Harold Abel Cathcart, Kamehameha descendant, filed opposition to Statehood and recorded it with Judge Samuel King.

Note: Samuel King is a descendant of treasonous, conspirator James King. The Cathcart opposition was filed by researcher Toni Auld Yardley in the First Circuit Court case. The information was also filed in the Kingdom of Hawaii records and the entity State of Hawaii Bureau of Conveyances Notice/file no. 96-177455 (281 pages) filed on 12/17/1996.

1993. Joint Resolution filed under Public Law 103-150 – Nov. 23, 1993 103d Congress “apology law” signed by U.S. President William Clinton.

Note: The Akaka Bill is intended to squelch this apology but the value is that it is an admission of some of the crimes.

Oppositions to the U.S. President Clinton claim that the coral reefs of the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands would receive a broad protection and a long-term program to protect coastal areas around the country was made, and oppositions were documented in a letter dated December 11, 2000.

Note: 1822. The coral seas were claimed by our alii and the rights of “piscary” was assigned to konohiki. See Native Testimonies/ Registers at the Archives, Honolulu, Oahu, Hawaii. Also, our Kingdom of Hawaii did receive revenue from ships who fished/whaled in our Hawaiian archipelago. See government records.

Oppositions to the Akaka Bill recorded in 2000 to 2009.

‘America’s reputation for bad foreign policy started in Hawaii’ by Stephen Kinzer OVERTHROW: AMERICA’S CENTURY OF REGIME CHANGE FROM HAWAII TO IRAQ’ has affected 14 nations: Hawaii; Cuba; Nicaragua; Puerto Rico; Philippines; Guatemala; Honduras; Vietnam; Chile; Iran; Grenada; Panama; Afghanistan; and Iraq.

Oppositions to the National Monument made and filed.

Genocide Activities file assigned from the Honolulu Police Department to list problematic people/pirates etc.

Recording information about and for the Hawaiian Kingdom/Ko Hawaii Pae Aina continues.

Royal Families House of Nobles also known as the Hulu Manu reformed.

Maintaining claims, genealogies made for our iwi, our families lands; Affidavits/Liens filed.

Documenting issues ongoing. Discovery and Uncovering of Frauds remain

Maintaining claims, lands, identities, including our aboriginal Hawaiian identities and based on the pre 1893 definitions/ legal and other through the term “kanaka maoli” instead of the theft of the identity “Hawaiian” for anyone born in the Hawaiian Islands which allows non-aboriginal Hawaiians to benefit off of our families through the “Rice vs. Cayetano case”, yet, another piracy of identities through the ‘legal maneuvers’ which is totally illegal due to the duress issues which renders everything “null and void”.

So, in continuing the Opposition to the claimed State or Fake State or Criminal Claims to being a State, everyone needs to know that the entity State supported by the U.S. has no claims to the Crown Lands due to the above issues and due to the facts that the descendants and heirs of Kamehameha exist. Thanks to the many researchers and the combined efforts of revisiting the ongoing wrongs of a pirating nation, everyone needs to know that our Queen did secure all lands because of the following:

1) Opposition to Annexation – the true letter was found which maintains that the rights of the Ruling Chiefs -includes descendants/heirs of aboriginal Chiefs based on the Royal Patents, alodio/allodial system, etc. and maintains the Crown Lands belonging to the Royal families, etals.

2) Queen Liliuokalani did not sign a Trust Deed with the conspirators/treasonous persons; however, she did do a Trust with her families which has only been found recently.

3) The issues of Piracy(ies) on the high seas is on record.

4) The issues of duress/Duress, coercion, stress, usurpation is on record.

5) The issues of genocide is on record.

6) Problematic issues discovered in historical documents, genealogies, laws, and overall research.

7) Our kanaka maoli have continued opposing the documented criminal deviants, etc.

8) Our kanaka maoli maintain a neutral, friendly, non-violent nation.

9) Our alii continue to assist, maintain, inform many nations about the wrongs done to our aboriginal Hawaiians/ kanaka maoli over time.

10) Our alii and konohiki maintains the claims, laws affecting the Hawaiian archipelago/Hawaiian Islands/Hawaiian Kingdom/ Ko Hawaii Pae Aina, a nation that exists and documented as having gone “under ground” since 1893.

11) Adjudication of crimes on the open seas needs to be made by our kanaka maoli and documenting wrongs in the International courts for the records, etc.

12) World Court case for the purpose of naming the U.S. as a terrorist nation (like the Sandanistas) and documenting genocide activities against our Royal families, subjects, citizens, foreigners in our Hawaiian archipelago recorded since 1893 and present day which includes: GMO’s/genetic modified organisms, toxins, DU/depleted uranium, etc. leading to the extermination of our people affecting the World today.

13) Bring back into existence the Law of Nations which existed prior to the League of Nations, CFR/Council on Foreign Relations, and United Nations, because the U.S. did breach the Law of Nations and created the other organizations with England and the bankers (Morgan and Bank of England).

14) Form an International Court of Justice along with the Law of Nations.

15) Cases of Genocide, etc. affecting all nations, etc.

16) Return legal language to the pre-1893 period, etc.

examples:

The use of the word indigenous with the meaning “uncivil” likened to uncivilized, barbaric, the person viewed as having no lands, resources, etc. due to their being incapable of handling such as the American Indians and others who have been defined and accepting of the use of “indigenous” term to label them, which is what the United Nations does, created by the U.S., England, and the bankers (Morgan and the Bank of England) through the CFR/Council on Foreign Relations the builders on the New World Order/ One World Order Warlords who departed from the Law of Nations through breach documented by Queen Liliuokalani in 1893.

The meaning of the word “indigenous” was given to Keoni Choy, and others, in a meeting with the United Nations Representative, after several of the Hawaiian groups leaders stormed out of the meeting, including well known activist Mililani Trask.

If an “indigenous” is utilized by anyone, that means that they basically agree that they own nothing, have nothing, and equate to nothing and continue under the definitions of “useless” and “needless eaters” set up for extermination by the New World Order/ One World Order goals by the U.S., England, and the bankers who set up the United Nations.

Admiralty law and maritime law are virtually synonymous and are concerned with commerce and navigation over navigable inland waters and the oceans. It includes the law of ships, carriage of goods, harbors, masters, seamen, contracts, marine insurance, salvages, cargo, liens and municipal seizure, marine bankruptcy of ships, etc. Maritime law traces its origins to the ancient maritime countries of the Mediterranean Sea. The United States maritime law is based on British maritime law with the main difference being that the United States extends its jurisdiction to inland navigable waters. The source of admiralty law is an individual state whereas law of the sea is international law that governs the behavior of countries. Slaves/Aliens are considered “cargo” on ships.

Greetings,

Please add Jimmy Pfluger to the Genocide Activities List.

This also records that he did threaten bodily harm upon my person in so many words. I, Amelia Gora, did also file a report with the Sheriff’s Department today, August 23, 2010 at 3:30 PM.

Parts of what happened is shown below.

Pfluger did not appear to want to be known as part of U.S. President OBAMA’s family, although research shows that they are indeed related.

Aloha,

Amelia,

The genocide that my great grandparents experienced caused their move for the Ku’e petition.

My grand parents experienced their genocide in the ww I II which led to their not ever voting and concern for our people

My parents born into such autrocities led me to where we are today.

Back to space one Ku’e petition, nuclear wars and Pacific Atmosphere testing our downwinders case ‘to be’ because of Waianae and the corporate Waste Streaming with out consent of the people is the latest and past facts.

Pulled out things that I found interesting:

Harold Abel Cathcart, Kamehameha descendant, filed opposition to Statehood and recorded it with Judge Samuel King.

Note: Samuel King is a descendant of treasonous, conspirator James King. The Cathcart opposition was filed by researcher Toni Auld Yardley in the First Circuit Court case. The information was also filed in the Kingdom of Hawaii records and the entity State of Hawaii Bureau of Conveyances Notice/file no. 96-177455 (281 pages) filed on 12/17/1996.

The true letter of Opposition to Annexation was found in the Maryland National Archives by researcher Kiliwehi Kekumano.

Note: Since 1929, a fraud/genocide evidence letter of Opposition has been sitting in the Archives, Honolulu, Oahu left for people to believe to be true. A comparative study of both documents shows the lies, deceit, frauds maintained vs. the truth.
1898 Aug 12 U.S. flag raised in Honolulu. Hawaiian flag lowered. Liliuokalani remains secluded at Washington Place. Queen Liliuokalani remained under duress, usurpation, coercion, and usurpation.

1993. Joint Resolution filed under Public Law 103-150 – Nov. 23, 1993 103d Congress “apology law” signed by U.S. President William Clinton.

Note: The Akaka Bill is intended to squelch this apology but the value is that it is an admission of some of the crimes.

Oppositions to the U.S. President Clinton claim that the coral reefs of the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands would receive a broad protection and a long-term program to protect coastal areas around the country was made, and oppositions were documented in a letter dated December 11, 2000.

Note: 1822. The coral seas were claimed by our alii and the rights of “piscary” was assigned to konohiki. See Native Testimonies/ Registers at the Archives, Honolulu, Oahu, Hawaii. Also, our Kingdom of Hawaii did receive revenue from ships who fished/whaled in our Hawaiian archipelago. See government records.

1) Opposition to Annexation – the true letter was found which maintains that the rights of the Ruling Chiefs -includes descendants/heirs of aboriginal Chiefs based on the Royal Patents, alodio/allodial system, etc. and maintains the Crown Lands belonging to the Royal families, etals.

2) Queen Liliuokalani did not sign a Trust Deed with the conspirators/treasonous persons; however, she did do a Trust with her families which has only been found recently.

The use of the word indigenous with the meaning “uncivil” likened to uncivilized, barbaric, the person viewed as having no lands, resources, etc. due to their being incapable of handling such as the American Indians and others who have been defined and accepting of the use of “indigenous” term to label them, which is what the United Nations does, created by the U.S., England, and the bankers (Morgan and the Bank of England) through the CFR/Council on Foreign Relations the builders on the New World Order/ One World Order Warlords who departed from the Law of Nations through breach documented by Queen Liliuokalani in 1893.

The meaning of the word “indigenous” was given to Keoni Choy, and others, in a meeting with the United Nations Representative, after several of the Hawaiian groups leaders stormed out of the meeting, including well known activist Mililani Trask.

If an “indigenous” is utilized by anyone, that means that they basically agree that they own nothing, have nothing, and equate to nothing and continue under the definitions of “useless” and “needless eaters” set up for extermination by the New World Order/ One World Order goals by the U.S., England, and the bankers who set up the United Nations.

NATIVE TENANTS: a falsehood, misnomer, alteration of identity, reduction of actual language, meanings, fabricated, foreign, term, label, discriminatory uses, office of person used in commerce, transmitting utility, artificial 14th amendment foreigner, alien, tenancy, tenant, commercial use, value, purpose, contractual, renting, leasing, occupying without ownership rights, etc. unconstitutional, illegal alteration of a foreign language, identity fraud when used to define or describe the actual lawful owner or kanaka Maoli a oiwi, a “tenant” does not own his/her own private property; a “tenant” was not granted ownership of a Royal Patent and or a Certificate of Title; a kanaka Maoli was pre-vested with private property rights as of June 7, 1839 Bill of Rights; Magna Charta; settled in lawful case law citing 1846 statutes, in re: Gill v. Kukiiahu 1851.

Professor(?) Curtis Innuendo on Island Terrorism

* Posted by Tane on August 23, 2010 at 4:58pm

I responded to Colin Steward of the Hawaii Tribune Herald:

Professor (?) Curtis on Terrorism

I find it extremely manipulative and insulting that Professor (?) Curtis
should create a thought to link terrorism with the Hawaiian National
Sovereignty Movement. I find this motivation of his repugnant and
question his degree he has received to teach or be credible in any
fashion.

One doesnʻt need a certification of academia to understand the dynamics
of what is within the realm of terrorism. For one thing, terrorism is
committed by a bully, whether a person, government, or a nation. We
can see the U.S.A. as a rogue, war-mongering nation that terrorizes
other nations; governments, and people. Any defense or retaliation
against such conduct has been regarded by the U.S. as
reverse-terrorism. Anyone who stands up to a bully is not the
terrorist. Itʻs smug, arrogant, and disingenuous to semantically label
resistance to a bully as being terroristic. One doesnʻt need a college
degree to figure this out or question the dynamics of whom are the
terrorists.

Only simpletons will kowtow to his logic and thoughts that he attempts to implant on the impressionable simple-minded souls.

Local News

Terrorism talk stirs emotions
Sovereignty supporters angered by study on homegrown violence
by Colin M. Stewart
Tribune-Herald Staff Writer
Published: Monday, August 23, 2010 8:57 AM HST
A speaker at a meeting of the Conservative Forum for Hawaii riled supporters of the Hawaiian sovereignty movement, although he never actually shared his thoughts or research on the subject.

University of Hawaii at Hilo Sociology Department chairman and professor Thom Curtis gave a
Powerpoint presentation Sunday afternoon at Naniloa Volcanoes Resort in which he
discussed his studies of homegrown Islamic terrorism.

In a release provided to the Tribune-Herald and printed in the Thursday edition of the
newspaper, Conservative Forum President Walter Moe was quoted as saying that
Curtis would also be discussing his research “into the potential for the
sovereignty movement to present a homegrown threat in Hawaii.”

In introducing his subject Sunday, Curtis said that leading up to Sept. 11, 2001,
his focus of study had been on the psychology and sociology of
disasters.

Following the attacks on the World Trade Center, however, Curtis said he decided to dedicate himself to the study of terrorism and “what
causes people to do such terrible things,” he said.

Since that time, he has tracked more than 150 U.S. citizens who have been indicted or convicted of
radical Islamist activities and studied their backgrounds to try and determine
when and how they came to the conclusion to resort to violence.

In his discussion, Curtis gave several well-known examples of homegrown terrorists and
presented their paths to terrorism. Common among almost all of the examples was
a sudden conversion to Islam, followed by increasing
radicalization.

Curtis opened the floor to questions after making no mention of the sovereignty movement, and it soon became apparent that many
people in the audience had come to debate him about the issue.

In a booming voice, one man rose and said that Curtis hadn’t addressed “the real
terrorists.”

“The idea is you need to keep the Hawaiian pagan ignorant and stupid,” he shouted. “You need to be correct. … You didn’t mention George
Bush, Rumsfeld or Dick Cheney. They the real terrorists.”

Another man accused Curtis of practicing the “politics of fear.”

Moanikeala Akaka, a former Office of Hawaiian Affairs trustee and longtime supporter of Hawaiian
rights, said Curtis should be ashamed of himself.

“You, sir, are a provocateur looking for money to discredit us. Our policy was one of peace. It
was not us who brought the navy ships. … We are a people of peace.

“You are trying to compare us with the terrorists, and I am highly offended,” she
added. “I have read your report. It is shoddy scholarship.”

A man with a name tag that said “Skippy” and a T-shirt with the message “Don’t Trust Whitey”
walked out of the room saying to the crowd, “I thought we were here to speak
truth!”

Curtis appeared surprised and frustrated with the audience’s reaction, eventually relinquishing the floor after several
interruptions.

After the meeting concluded, audience members said they had been angered by the newspaper article’s description of Curtis’ areas of
study, and specifically were offended by a perceived implication that members of
the Hawaiian sovereignty movement were similar to radical Islamic
terrorists.

For his part, Curtis said he had been surprised by the audience’s reaction, as well as the article about his appearance.

“I hadn’t intended to discuss Hawaiian sovereignty,” he said.

Curtis said that he had, indeed, been involved with a student-led and -designed study about
the possibility of violence in connection with the sovereignty movement, but he
maintains that the results of the study showed rather decisively that a vast
majority of interviewees did not feel violence was a viable
solution.

After Sunday’s meeting, Curtis said he did not plan on speaking in the future about the study in public.

“I’ll talk about it with colleagues and students, and I’ll still pursue it in my studies, but I won’t be
able to talk about it in public. It’s just too personal, too emotional for
people,” he said.

Not surprise at what I am reading. After sitting in the hot seat for six hours on Jan 13, 2010 at Hilo University surrounded by whiteness and their shoddy logistics, Curtis could get away with such ascholarship.

After the civil war Mark Twain went to Big Island the moku of Keawe and preyed on Na Kanaka Women.

Curtis is doing like wise, same place and post 911.

I wonder what he might say about Timothy McVay and Okalahoma and Koresh at Waco. Does these personality fit his Islamic model or patterns too?

I would assume so Jim Jones born in US Indiana would be a good comperative, wouldn’t this be true–to the bones of contention?

Amen

I had taught at a school where one of the children were houseless at guard rails and I want to say thank you for the humor too.

It was difficult, but we talked and shared about teen’s today are at risk and even if it is that bad (houseless) stand up, life is for a very long time, don’t get depressed, and if you do it bananas and poi.

so thank you much for being their and giving me an opportunity to share. Your presence is still in my heart.

The bananas and poi has potassium vitamin b’s and poi has the complex of b’s this knocks out the depressions that teens have in their time of solitair (sp). They also burn calories. I learn to crank out a paper 25 page on banana’s after I turned in my paper I would indulge in fish and poi for fish oil and complete vitamin b complex. UH Manoa is on a hill so I was able to burn calories, I couldn’t drive a car because of the focused brain cells, no periphery vision–so I walked a lot.

Water which I am about to par-take in at rest camp, is not available to most teens. They go straight to the video games and straight home to wait for their parents to come home from work. Teens don’t have the roaming freedom like we did when we were young.

So those are the details of what I did thanks to your inspirations. I spoke to eugene this morning he is my partner, he’s unable to return just yet to the frontline and wants the prayer group he belongs to change their location. So I should be out there soon, I can’t do this alone the need is to great. Going for a swim

Much love

For humor today,

I’ve been going over my girlfriends paintings. Her name is Peggy Chun and she too past. I know I will see her someday, hope not too soon for I want to experience a little bit more with my grandchildren.

I went to the made in Hawaii show.

Awhile back, in the early 70s I was part of the Made in Hawaii Association–a very young mother with all her children. With babies in hand, I got together with Peggy Chun at her house in Waimanalo, and she taught me how to just take anything and turn it into arts and craft that was the beginning of ‘no fear’ just go and make money.

The association went through a lot of ups and downs as a group, but what we all had in common was made in Hawaii.

This show was special for me because, I miss Peggy and I just wanted to see her beautiful art work and like Dwight have a talk story.

What was so interesting is that we artisans were so surprised at the hate that came from not just haole’s but our own people were also damming us too.

As a long time bottle collector, I couldn’t get Hawaiians interested in doing crafts and saving our arts. Trust me I was surrounded by non Na Kanaka doing what we needed to do.

One can also go very broke too.

Peggy was my best friend that kept on encouraging me to pursue my creative needs. When we use to share booths together at the product shows, she gave me all her leads and contacts. I even picked up Disney Land account.

So what happen? I always wanted to go to college so I did, but I had to sell my business and pay my creditors off. I no kea I had the best time of my life living in the dorms at UH Manoa.

So now when Na Kanaka do their thing..I can’t talk my mind… I just continue with my opinion anyway.

Specifically the bloodquantum which irks the crap out of the bobo’s that can’t access Hawaiian Homesland.

It’s a place that multiplies and with the Akaka Bill we should loose our soil, our souls, and our bodies.

I have a different view from most as to why I don’t want the Akaka Bill it’s intent is to let in veterans of the arm forces through the front door. Now that changes everything from multiplier of the native Hawaiian people to the true sense of white whore house for the armed forces.

We will be producers of military children that will transition from native Hawaiians to GI Joes.

Nice talking to you, hope you get to read this if not –hope to see you at our next event.

Okay Andrew,

Thanks for the tip; however, Dr. Doolittle does not cut to the tiny pin hole.

This so reminds me of Mark Twain version of Native Hawaiian women in the Moku of Keawe.

It seems to me that the French too visited Maui and gawked at our native women their too in the 1800s.

Between attractions to little boys and hate for native Hawaiian women which are the staples for ‘white’ scholarships for University of Hawaii Hilo and Manoa…interesting? You do see the likeness of somewhat.

I too had a hand in opposing of my own Na Kanaka as well as those that are not Kanaka. Which I’m called upon all the time and that is the divisor rather than the unity.

I see the multiplier and not the divisor and will continue down this road for the rest of my life.

My going to the Made in Hawaii Show, I was excited to see the work that was done in the 60s and the 70s done by the old Made in Hawaii group of small business. What I learned was marketing as in multiplying and later I met Dr. George Kanahele and lived in the dorms for three weeks up at the hill with other native Hawaiians in 1982 to learn business planning thus the beginning of ‘Ku Kanaka’ in the world market. A great deal of oki went on in our workshops as to why our crafts were not marketable, how to market ourselves, and beliefs in marketing. Regardless–it’s what the market will bear which is always at the tip or beginning of a craft design.

This was the onset of small businesses among native Hawaiians and the Made in Hawaii was filled with such at this 2010 show.

There was clear separation of the Pacific Handcrafters Guild that was a gatekeeper for native Hawaiian artisans in the 70s. They did everything possible to keep native Hawaiians out of the craft market with their rules. That was the essence of Made in Hawaii to include everyone that crafted and to debunk the fine artisans as the controllers of the artisans market.

Would you believe the Pacific Handcrafters guild got together with the Parks and Recreations and actually was able to define native Hawaiian crafts? Quilts, woodcarvers, Niihau shells, paintings, and other art form to craft were the ‘only’ representations of art. Which is how the separation of Made by native Hawaiian came about? But that’s another argument.

But, cool Made In Hawaii thanks to Peggy Chun’s beauty in her heart a great deal of us were able to craft with just any ole medium and cookie cutter for the market. We were able to feed our families etc…

As for the little peepee and his projected violence upon the peaceful people of the Pacific, countries such as France (nuclear testing in the Pacific) Great Britain (Nuclear Testing in the Pacific) and US America (Nuclear Testing in the Pacific) impacts our children everyday just as they did at Nagasaki August 9 and Hiroshima. We have nuclear bombs about to blow up our world that are the very fabric (Quilt Patch Nations) of this talk.

Remember children were sitting at their school desk when Fat Boy dropped on their heads. Now that is real violence against children and elsewhere in the world.

My real complaint is that, we just got through discussing the fact that we need air conditions in all schools in Waianae because our communities are full of air pollution from all the waste streaming that goes on here.

Big Bio Waste Streaming bogus corporations are setting up to receive big Asian loans come 2011. Bill Gates are also a scholarship funder for research on shredding nuclear waste another bogus corporation in Hawaii specifically Waianae loaded with these fool gold.

Hold on to your reins because that’s the coming of Sacking Hawaii in its entirety.
Genocidal to our poverty: has been the staple of Waianae a real pay check industry, with that said poverty and environmentalist also play the game at UH Manoa and Leeward community college no difference than what Curtis is doing same stinking smell.

Okay so let’s organize the themes:

Hawaiian people didn’t want to be evilly projected upon by ‘white scholarship’ even though Sanford B Dole held a gun to her (Liliu’s ) head as his goons molested her and her country.

An announced Pennsylvania public court hanging as in a Salem Witch hunt style was fully intended in betwixt of a scholarship lecture.

Any high school courtyard babysitter knows the dynamics of “Lords of Flies” Curtis is a prostitute for cheap and blue notations.

His 6% tells the margin of error in his research that quantified the variable of ‘poverty’ in a bank broken American Nation.

As I said early on Jim Jones, born in Indiana, Timothy McVay and Okalahoma and Koresh at Waco Texas all have the same whiteness to their pshyconess. This concerns me everyday, we have these personalities smashingly everywhere in the Hawaiian movement and I guess I can add Curtis and his followers to the list.

Andrew,

This is an excerpt from one of Tane’s posting and when I read this it sent chills up my spine, this is the political cause and effect of radicalism—political made by the justice department and it’s continuation of it. That is basically where this research is honeing in. So very sad! Our today/future young people will be abused my these ‘ivory tower wars’ and court rooms that have very little concern for the people–especially with those that don’t even have a basic income for they are off the US economic radar.

“If you can generate more awareness of this upcoming argument by forwarding a copy of this email, please do. We would want
as many affected Hawaiians, especially kûpuna, come to listen and show
support for what we are placing before the court – an issue of
conscience that should NOT go away. It is about a promise that has been
broken. It is about legal accountability for that
promise, while getting all the economic benefits of statehood. Please
get any of your ohana or friends willing to attend this argument to show
up!

Judge Bert Ayabe (who is on the short list to replace Chief Justice Moon who is retiring) dismissed the Nelson complaint because
he believed only the Legislature can choose to uphold the duty to fund
DHHL sufficiently because it is a “political” decision that a court
cannot address. We disagree; it should be the court to tell the State
that it is in breach of a constitutional duty to
fund.

hi Tane,

Thank you for posting this………

The intent of the U.S. has always been to conquer and divide….the sugar plantation mentality…..

It appears that this person, posing as an educator is actually utilizing social change to maneuver the thought patterns of the general public to view Hawaiian/aboriginal Hawaiians as terrorist…..when in fact, since Clinton’s period I did start calling the U.S. terrorists……….it’s in letters to President Clinton, prior to 911 Twin Towers….

in the legal dictionary, terrorist is not there but terror is…………..so, to keep everyone on track, it is imperative that everyone keep in mind the fact that the U.S. did terrorize our neutral nation by letting out their military, Congress did do a standing order to take over and the bluejackets on the BOSTON did disembark on January 15, 1893 breaching the Friendship Treaty with a neutral nation the Hawaiian Kingdom.

In a concerted effort by treasonous persons, Americans/Amerikkkans, Masons/Freemasons, paid off Hawaiians/aboriginal Hawaiians, and brokeass nations U.S., England, with their Morgan bank investors, they did move to assume a friendly, neutral nation known as the Hawaiian Kingdom/Hawaiian Islands/Hawaiian archipelago. This effort culminated in the criminal assumption of private properties of a neutral, non violent peoples, friendly, non warring nation headed by Queen Liliuokalani on January 17, 1893………much of the facts have been uncovered and many researchers continue to dig up the truth, etc.

Let the people of the World know this….everyone should send, distribute widely the order…..because that Professor has his head on backwards and looking into his pocket for the payout given by his feeders in trying to make our friendly, non violent people looking ugly……….when in fact, they -U.S. who broke the Permanent Friendship Treaty, created WARS with those who questioned them — Spain (Spanish American War); Germany (World War I); Japan (World War II); and Iraq (remember Saddam Hussein who questioned the U.S. when they took over Kuwait for a while…..then the U.S. bombers killed the bulk of Iraqi’s after leaving Kuwait)………..and look at the millions affected due to the claim that 911 was planned by CIA trained Al Caida…….

Curtis is just one of the many who are trained to spread Amerikkkan/American propaganda disregarding the truth……wicked indeed…. aloha.

In the case of Ken Conklin by way of opinion two or three people should be assigned the task of following and correcting 24/7 his daily spin. One member here on Maoliworld has suggested in the past he should be ignored and Hawaiian Nationals should not waste time in responding to his diatribes, as a viewpoint this is erroneous as it gives him carte blanche to print untruthful falsehoods.

Wikileaks New Release: CIA Red Cell memorandum on”What If Foreigners See the United States as an’Exporter of Terrorism?”

By Rob Kall (about the author) Page 1 of 1 page(s)

opednews.com

For OpEdNews: Wiki Leaks – Writer

This CIA “Red Cell” report from February 2, 2010, looks at what will happen if it is internationally understood that the United States is an exporter of terrorism; ‘Contrary to common belief, the American export of terrorism or terrorists is not a recent phenomenon, nor has it been associated only with Islamic radicals or people of Middle Eastern, African or South Asian ethnic origin.

This dynamic belies the American belief that our free, open and integrated, multicultural society lessens the allure of radicalism and terrorism for US citizens. The report looks at a number cases of US exported terrorism, including attacks by US based or nanced Jewish, Muslim and Irish-nationalism terrorists.

It concludes that foreign perceptions of the US as an “Exporter of Terrorism” together with US double standards in international law, may lead to noncooperation in renditions (including the arrest of CIA ocers) and the decision to not share terrorism related intelligence with the United States.

9/11 interrogation tapes found under desk
August 17, 2010, MSNBC
http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/ 38735351/ns/us_news-security

The CIA has tapes of [alleged] 9/11 plotter Ramzi Binalshibh being interrogated in a secret overseas prison. Discovered under a desk, the recordings could provide an unparalleled look at how foreign governments aided the U.S. in holding and questioning suspected terrorists. CIA officials believed they had wiped away all of the agency’s interrogation footage. But in 2007, a staff member discovered a box tucked under a desk in the CIA’s Counterterrorism Center and pulled out the Binalshibh tapes. A Justice Department prosecutor … is now … probing why the Binalshibh tapes were never disclosed. Twice, the government told a federal judge they did not exist. The tapes could complicate U.S. efforts to prosecute Binalshibh, 38. If the tapes surfaced at trial, they could clearly reveal Morocco’s role in the counterterrorism program known as Greystone, which authorized the CIA to hold terrorists in secret prisons and shuttle them to other countries. More significantly to his defense, the tapes also could provide evidence of Binalshibh’s mental state within the first months of his capture. In court documents, defense lawyers have been asking for medical records to see whether Binalshibh’s years in CIA custody made him mentally unstable. He is being treated for schizophrenia with a potent cocktail of anti-psychotic medications.

Plaintiff who challenged FBI’s national security letters reveals concerns
August 10, 2010, Washington Post
http://www.washingtonpost.com/ wp-dyn/content/article/2010/ 08/09/AR2010080906252.html

For six years, Nicholas Merrill has lived in a surreal world of half-truths, where he could not tell even his fiancee, his closest friends or his mother that he is “John Doe” — the man who filed the first-ever court challenge to the FBI’s ability to obtain personal data on Americans without judicial approval. No one knew he was the plaintiff challenging the FBI’s authority to issue “national security letters,” as they are known, and its ability to impose a gag on the recipient. Now, following the partial lifting of his gag order 11 days ago as a result of an FBI settlement, Merrill can speak openly for the first time about the experience, although he cannot disclose the full scope of the data demanded. “One of the most dangerous and troubling things about the FBI’s national security letter powers is how much it has been shrouded in secrecy,” said Melissa Goodman, a lawyer with the American Civil Liberties Union

who helped Merrill sue the government in April 2004 and was one of only a handful of people outside the FBI — all lawyers — who knew Merrill had received a letter. The FBI between 2003 and 2006 issued more than 192,500 letters — an average of almost 50,000 a year. The Justice Department inspector general in 2007 faulted the bureau for failing to adequately justify the issuance of such letters.

Brazil air force to record UFO sightings
August 11, 2010, BBC News
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/ world-latin-america-10947856

Brazil’s government has ordered its air force to officially record any sighting of unidentified flying objects. A government decree said all military and civilian pilots as well as air traffic controllers should register any UFO sightings with the national aerospace defence command. Anything unusual that is seen, photographed or video filmed in Brazil’s air space will now have to be reported and catalogued. But the air force said it would limit itself to collecting information, and would not be chasing UFOs. “Air force command does not have a specialized structure to carry out scientific experiments on these phenomena and will limit itself to recording any events” the air force said in a statement. There have been several reports of UFOs in Brazil in recent decades. In 1986, air force jets were scrambled to investigate unidentified objects in the skies above Sao Paulo, but the phenomenon was never fully explained. And in 1977 the Amazon town of Vigia asked for military help after some residents said they had been attacked by extra-terrestrials. One anonymous air traffic controller told the Brazilian newspaper O Dia that sightings had been reported at the highest level. “I have heard of ministers and even a president who said they had seen a UFO”, he said.

Before the CIA, there was the Pond
July 29, 2010, MSNBC/Associated Press
http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/ 38470605/ns/us_news-security

Created during World War II as [one of America's most secretive espionage agencies] the Pond existed for 13 years and was shrouded in secrecy for more than 50 years. It used sources that ranged from Nazi officials to Stalinists and, at one point, a French serial killer. It operated under the cover of multinational corporations, including American Express, Chase National Bank and Philips, the Dutch-based electronic giant. One of its top agents was a female American journalist. Now the world can finally get a deeper look at the long-hidden roots of American espionage as tens of thousands of once-secret documents found in locked safes and filing cabinets in a barn near Culpeper, Virginia, in 2001 have … become public. The papers, which the Pond’s leader tried to keep secret long after the organization was dissolved, were placed in the National Archives in College Park, Maryland, in 2008 but only opened to the public in April. Those records plus documents obtained by The Associated Press in the past two years from the FBI, CIA and other agencies under the Freedom of Information Act portray a sophisticated organization obsessed with secrecy that operated a network of 40 chief agents and more than 600 sources in 32 countries. The AP has also interviewed former officials, family members, historians and archivists.

Probe finds hundreds of cases of mishandled evidence in N. Carolina
August 18, 2010, Kansas City Star
http://www.kansascity.com/ 2010/08/18/2159656/probe- finds-hundreds-of-cases.html

The North Carolina justice system shook [on August 18] as an audit commissioned by state Attorney General Roy Cooper revealed that the State Bureau of Investigation withheld or distorted evidence in more than 200 cases at the expense of potentially innocent men and women. The full impact of the disclosure will reverberate for years to come as prosecutors and defense attorneys re-examine cases as much as two decades old to figure out whether these errors robbed defendants of justice. Some of the injustices can be addressed as attorneys bring old cases back to court. For others, it’s too late. Three of the defendants in [corrupt] cases have been executed. Two former FBI agents, Chris Swecker and Mike Wolf, examined more than 15,000 cases at the invitation of Cooper, a Democrat who has been attorney general since 2001. The exoneration of Greg Taylor, a Wake County man imprisoned 17 years for a murder he didn’t commit, prompted the review. SBI analyst Duane Deaver admitted in February that he failed to report tests indicating a substance on Taylor’s SUV was not blood. Swecker’s findings, he said, signal potential violations of the U.S. Constitution and North Carolina laws by withholding information favorable to defendants.

Note: Three innocent individuals were likely executed in this one US state. How many more are there like this around the world?

US cops: armed and dangerous?
August 16, 2010, The Guardian (One of the UK’s leading newspapers)
http://www.guardian.co.uk/ commentisfree/cifamerica/2010/ aug/16/police-usa-civil- liberties

Can you invent a realistic scenario wherein you shoot a man dead; justify it with a story witnesses contradict; confiscate any surveillance video; claim a “glitch” makes it impossible to show the video to anyone else – all while enjoying the support of state legal apparatus? Police in Las Vegas did that last month, after they shot Erik Scott seven times as he exited a Costco. Cops say Scott pointed a gun at them; witnesses say Scott’s licensed weapon was in a concealed holster, and five of those seven shots hit him in the back. The confiscated surveillance video might settle the question; too bad about that glitch. At least Costco’s not in trouble for recording police actions. That’s illegal in 12 states, even (or especially) when you record police misbehaviour. Even in states where it’s allowed, officers are wont to ignore the law and go after photographers anyway, and they can always record you with their own dashboard cams. Whenever Tasers are issued, they’re used with shocking (sorry) frequency. With guns, police at least have to argue “Oops, I thought he was dangerous”, after shooting you; Tasers don’t even require that. In 2004, Malaika Brooks, then seven months pregnant, was stopped for speeding in Seattle. She refused to sign the ticket – a non-arrestable misdemeanour at the time, though she was arrested for it anyway – and was Tasered three times. Last March, a federal appeals court ruled that the Tasering, which left permanent scars, was not “excessive force” since it only inflicted “temporary, localised pain”.

Note: The short video in this article of a mother being tazed for no apparent reason is particularly revealing.

The Sun Also Surprises
August 16, 2010, New York Times
http://www.nytimes.com/2010/ 08/16/opinion/16joseph.html

Occasionally, a large solar storm can rain energy down on the earth, overpowering electrical grids. About once a century, a giant pulse can knock out worldwide power systems for months or even years. It’s been 90 years since the last super storm, but scientists say we are on the verge of another period of high solar activity. Significant storms have hit earth several times over the last 150 years, most notably in 1859 and 1921. Those occurred before the development of the modern power grid; recovering from a storm that size today would cost up to $2 trillion a year for several years. Storms don’t have to be big to do damage. [A] storm in 2003 caused a blackout in Sweden and fried 14 high-voltage transformers in South Africa. The storm was relatively weak, but by damaging transformers it put parts of the country off-line for months. That’s because high-voltage transformers … are the most sensitive part of a grid; a strong electromagnetic pulse can easily fuse their copper wiring, damaging them beyond repair. Even worse, transformers are hard to replace. They weigh up to 100 tons, so they can’t be easily moved from the factories in Europe and Asia where most of them are made; right now, there’s already a three-year waiting list for new ones.

Note: The 1859 solar storm knocked out sturdy telegraph machines. An equivalent storm today could do unbelievable damage and conceivalby knock out the Internet for a time. For more on the 1859 storm and its implications, click here

Alaska batters D.C. but loves its dollars
August 18, 2010, Seattle Times
http://seattletimes.nwsource. com/html/nationworld/ 2012663267_stimulus19.html

Alaskans tend to live with their contradictions in these recessionary times. No place benefits more from federal largess than this state, where the Republican governor decries “intrusive” Obama administration policies, officials sue to overturn the health-care law and GOP Sen. Lisa Murkowski voted against the stimulus bill. While its unemployment rate sits at only 7.9 percent, 1.6 percentage points below the national rate, Alaska has received $3,145 per capita in stimulus dollars as of May, the most in the nation, according to data compiled by ProPublica, an investigative website. The state has avoided the unemployment devastation visited on the Lower 48 in part because federal dollars support one-third of Alaska jobs, according to a study at the University of Alaska, Anchorage (UAA). Not that this has assuaged the anti-government rancor. Here is the cognitive dissonance. More and more Alaskans, particularly of the Republican stripe, identify the federal government and pork-barrel spending as the enemy, although Alaska was built by both. Alaska’s appetite for federal dollars always has been voracious and even today is not confined to the stimulus. A study by professor Scott Goldsmith of UAA’s Institute of Social and Economic Research noted an “extraordinary increase” in federal spending drove the state’s pile-driver growth of the past 15 years. Alaska’s share now is 71 percent more than average.

Crocodile crazy: The man who enjoys giving his dangerous ‘companion’ kisses and cuddles
August 17, 2009, Daily Mail (One of the UK’s largest-circulation newspapers)
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/ news/article-1206872/ Crocodile-crazy-The-man- enjoys…

Known as the ‘Crocodile Man’, Costa Rican animal lover Chito swims, plays and even feeds Pocho the giant crocodile in what is one of the world’s most unlikely friendships. ‘This is a very dangerous routine but Pocho is my friend and we have a good relationship,’ says 52-year-old Chito. ‘He will look me in the eye and he does not attack me. It is too dangerous for anyone else to come in the water. It is only ever the two of us.’ The bizarre friendship began nearly 20 years ago when Chito rescued the 980-pound crocodile after finding him close to death … shot in the left eye by a cattle farmer after preying on a herd of cows. Chito enlisted the help of several friends to load the massive reptile into his boat. Naming him ‘Pocho’ (meaning strength), the fisherman says he healed the reptile with medicine, food, and, more importantly, lots of care and attention. ‘When I found him in the river after he was dying so I put him in my boat and I brought him into my house,’ recalls Chito. ‘He was very skinny, weighing only around 150 pounds, so I gave him chicken and fish and medicine for six months to help him recover.’ During the recovery process, Chito stayed by Pocho’s side, even sleeping with him at night. ‘I just wanted him to feel that someone loved him, that not all humans are bad,’ Chito says.

Key Articles From Years Past

Bin Laden driver said to have known 9/11 target
July 23, 2008, Reuters
http://uk.reuters.com/article/ idUKN2230096620080723

Osama bin Laden’s driver knew the target of the fourth hijacked jetliner in the September 11 attacks, a prosecutor said. Prosecutor Timothy Stone, in an attempt to draw a link between [Salim] Hamdan and the al Qaeda leadership in the first Guantanamo war crimes trial, told the six-member jury of U.S. military officers … that Hamdan had inside knowledge of the 2001 attacks on the United States because he overheard a conversation between bin Laden and his deputy, Ayman al-Zawahiri. “If they hadn’t shot down the fourth plane it would’ve hit the dome,” Stone, a Navy officer, said in his opening remarks. “Virtually no one knew the intended target, but the accused knew,” Stone said. United Airlines Flight 93 crashed in a field in rural Pennsylvania. U.S. officials have never stated it was shot down although rumours saying that abound to this day.

Note: Some 9/11 researchers have long believed the target of the fourth plane was the US Capitol. If a number of members of Congress had been killed, Bush almost certainly would have declared martial law, thus stripping Congress of its power and making him a virtual dictator. Just imagine what might have happened in that case. Some suspect that Flight 93 was shot down by friendly fire, possibly on orders of factions within the power elite who were against the plot.

Secret at the heart of Putin’s rise to power
March 13, 2004, The Telegraph (One of the UK’s leading newspapers)
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/ news/worldnews/europe/russia/ 1456763/Secret-at-the-heart- of-Putins…

More than 240 [Russians died in the autumn of 1999] in a wave of bombings that destroyed three blocks of flats, two in Moscow and one in the town of Volgodonsk. The Russian authorities were swift to lay the blame at the door of Chechen separatists. But no supporting evidence has emerged. Two men from the Caucasus were convicted of involvement after a closed trial this year, but it was widely denounced as a charade. Instead a growing body of proof has surfaced that links the bombings … to the FSB – the revamped KGB. Independent investigators, including several MPs, who have sought to look into the case have been intimidated, arrested or beaten. Analysts and investigators claim that President Vladimir Putin, who was FSB chief until August of that year and subsequently prime minister, must know the truth. Lilia Shevtsova, a senior associate with the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, said: “He would know not just what happened but who the suspects were. The truth will not damage him because it won’t be told until after he is gone.” The 1999 bombings proved to be Mr Putin’s political making. He positioned himself as a strongman who would crush the Chechen rebels and restore order to the ailing country. Riding a wave of nationalist fervour, in eight months he went from being a virtual political unknown to winning the presidency by an easy margin.

Terrorists ‘helped by CIA’ to stop rise of left in Italy
March 26, 2001, The Guardian (One of the UK’s leading newspapers)
http://www.guardian.co.uk/ world/2001/mar/26/terrorism

US intelligence services instigated and abetted rightwing terrorism in Italy during the 1970s, a former Italian secret service general has claimed. The allegation was made by General Gianadelio Maletti, a former head of military counter-intelligence, at the trial last week of rightwing extremists accused of killing 16 people in the bombing of a Milan bank in 1969 – the first time such a charge has been made in a court of law by a senior Italian intelligence figure. Gen Maletti, commander of the counter-intelligence section of the military intelligence service from 1971 to 1975, said his men had discovered that a rightwing terrorist cell in the Venice region had been supplied with military explosives from Germany. Those explosives may have been obtained with the help of members of the US intelligence community, an indication that the Americans had gone beyond the infiltration and monitoring of extremist groups to instigating acts of violence, he said. “The CIA … following the directives of its government, wanted to create an Italian nationalism capable of halting what it saw as a slide to the left and, for this purpose, it may have made use of rightwing terrorism,” Gen Maletti told the Milan court. “I believe this is what happened in other countries as well.”

The C.I.A. in Iran — How a Plot Convulsed Iran in ’53 (and in ’79)
April 16, 2000, New York Times
http://www.nytimes.com/ library/world/mideast/ 041600iran-cia-index.html

The Central Intelligence Agency’s secret history of its covert operation to overthrow Iran’s government in 1953 offers an inside look at how the agency stumbled into success, despite a series of mishaps that derailed its original plans. Written in 1954 by one of the coup’s chief planners, the history details how United States and British officials plotted the military coup that returned the shah of Iran to power and toppled Iran’s elected prime minister, an ardent nationalist. The document shows that: * The C.I.A. and S.I.S., the British intelligence service, handpicked Gen. Fazlollah Zahedi to succeed Prime Minister Mohammed Mossadegh and covertly funneled $5 million to General Zahedi’s regime two days after the coup prevailed. * Iranians working for the C.I.A. and posing as Communists harassed religious leaders and staged the bombing of one cleric’s home in a campaign to turn the country’s Islamic religious community against Mossadegh’s government.

Pentagon is said to focus on ESP for wartime use
January 10, 1984 New York Times
http://www.nytimes.com/1984/ 01/10/science/pentagon-is- said-to-focus-on-esp-for- wartime-use.html

The Pentagon has spent millions of dollars, according to three new reports, on secret projects to investigate extrasensory phenomena and to see if the sheer power of the human mind can be harnessed to perform various acts of espionage and war – penetrating secret files, for example, locating submarines or blowing up guided missiles in midflight. The Pentagon denies that it is spending money on psychic research. The assertions to the contrary appear in a trio of new books, one just published and two scheduled to be released this spring, and in a series of interviews in which past Pentagon officials and scientists who study the paranormal have discussed what they contend is the military’s decades-long psychic quest. What emerges is a picture of [the Pentagon] trying to master such esoteric arts as ESP (extrasensory perception), telepathy (thought transfer), clairvoyance (seeing things that are out of sight), and psychokinesis (mental influence over objects or events) – all in the name of the national defense. A Pentagon spokesman went so far as to deny that the Department of Defense today ”spent a nickel” on psychic research, but he also suggested that he could not acknowledge the existence of highly classified projects. The most detailed study of an actual set of psychic experiments comes from The Mind Race

, by Russell Targ and Keith Harary.

Note: This is one of many examples of blatant lying by the Pentagon on secret projects. The Pentagon consistently denied the existence of a remote viewing project (called Stargate) until the documents from the project were declassified in 1995. You can find the documents online at this link

. For a long period of time, the US government denied the existence of the NSA, so that the moniker “No Such Agency” was jokingly used.

Ban Glenn Beck from Ground Zero

So, if we’re banning things from near Ground Zero, then banning Glenn Beck makes more sense than anything else. The Park51 Project is actually trying to heal wounds, spread a moderate form of Islam and reach out to everyone in the community. And they certainly have never said anything nearly as offensive about the 9/11 victims or their families as Beck has.

Who wants Never-ending War, and Why? by Joshua Holland

It is a mistake to take the Right-wingers at their word when they say they want to protect America from Islamic terrorists. Their behavior makes sense when we recognize that they seek not victory but never-ending war. Their true aim is to bolsters military spending, to support secrecy that veils govt corruption, to justify the suspension of democratic freedoms. They can only maintain their power when democracy is squelched.

ear MoveOn member,

You’ve probably heard about the devastating flooding in Pakistan, where an astonishing one-fifth of the entire country is under water.

According to a UN spokesman, “This disaster is worse than the tsunami, the 2005 Pakistan earthquake and the Haiti earthquake.”1

The people of Pakistan desperately need help—and with the response from international donors “scant” so far,2 our friends at Avaaz, a international MoveOn-style group, are mobilizing to raise much-needed funds for Pakistan.

Please check out their recent email, below, and give as much as you can to help relief efforts.

Dear friends,
Pakistan

A humanitarian catastrophe of terrifying proportions is unfolding in Pakistan, with a fifth of the country under water, and millions of people homeless and desperately needing assistance.

Some relief efforts are underway, but the international response to the mega-disaster has been irresponsibly slow and weak—the UN has urgently appealed for $460 million of vital aid, but just 40% has been delivered.

Relief workers warn that without an immediate increase in aid the death toll could sky-rocket. We can help by sending funds directly to the most reliable aid organizations, and by pressing our governments to step up their efforts. Let’s show our leaders what generosity looks like, and demand that they join us. Click here to send a personal message to key donor governments:

http://www.moveon.org/r?r=90034&id=22794-2186682-6pV2xvx&t=8

After visiting the flood stricken areas, a visibly upset UN General Secretary, Ban Ki Moon, said “This has been a heart-wrenching day for me. In the past, I have visited many natural disasters, but I have never seen anything like this.”

Thousands of towns and villages have been washed away—roads, buildings, bridges, crops. Now people are stranded on tiny islands surrounded by flood waters. With no clean water to drink, cholera, diarrhea and other sicknesses are on the rise, threatening the millions of people who have lost their homes and livelihoods.

The international response so far has not matched that of previous large scale disasters. Organisations like UNICEF and WHO have said they lack the funds to provide adequate assistance.

The governments of the world need to do more, and we can lead by example. Let’s stand with Pakistan at this time of crisis, and ask important donor governments to do the same.

Our community has risen to the challenge of awful disasters before. In 2008, Avaaz members raised over 2 million dollars for the victims of Cyclone Nargis in Burma. Earlier this year, $1.4 million was raised for the victims of the earthquake in Haiti. Our ability to move quickly in times of crisis can make the difference between life or death for people struggling to cope with disaster. Let’s show the people of Pakistan that people and governments around the world stand with them in this awful crisis.

Sharron Angle Claims United Nations Is Unconstitutional

In a recent interview with a local TV station, Nevada Republican Senate candidate Sharron Angle claimed that it is unconstitutional for the United States to remain in the United Nations:

ANGLE: The United Nations resides on our soil and costs us money. We are – I don’t see any place in the Constitution — in those eight priorities — about the United Nations. So when we start talking about cutting programs, 5-percent per year, I think the United Nations fits into that category, yes.

Watch it:

Angle might want to actually read the Constitution before she starts talking about what’s in it. Article II of the Constitution provides that the president “shall have power, by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, to make treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur.” That is why the United States may belong to treaty organizations such as the UN. President Truman entered into the treaty which creates the UN, and the Senate ratified that treaty.

Although Angle’s assault on the constitutionality of the UN appears to be her own unique delusion, she is hardly alone among Republicans in asserting crankish theories of the Constitution. Indeed, the GOP is increasingly captured by radicals who think that Medicare, Social Security, the Affordable Care Act, the minimum wage, the federal ban on whites only lunch counters and federal laws regulating child labor are all unconstitutional, or that the Constitution’s most basic protections should be repealed.
Update Yesterday, Angle ran an ad stating, “I’d like to save Social Security by locking the lock box, putting the money back into the Trust Fund so government can no longer raid our retirement.” Today, she reverted to her position that Social Security needs to be privatized, citing as evidence the revamping of Chile’s pension system by former dictator Augusto Pinochet.

Subject: Valedictorian Speaks Out Against Schooling in Graduation Speech

http://www.sott.net/articles/show/212383-Valedictorian-Speaks-Out-A…

Best of the Web
Graduation ceremony

© The Daily Mail
The 2010 Graduating Class of Coxsackie-Athens High School.

Comment: The following speech was delivered by top of the class student Erica Goldson during the graduation ceremony at Coxsackie-Athens High School on June 25, 2010

Here I stand

There is a story of a young, but earnest Zen student who approached his teacher, and asked the Master, “If I work very hard and diligently, how long will it take for me to find Zen? The Master thought about this, then replied, “Ten years . .” The student then said, “But what if I work very, very hard and really apply myself to learn fast — How long then?” Replied the Master, “Well, twenty years.” “But, if I really, really work at it, how long then?” asked the student. “Thirty years,” replied the Master. “But, I do not understand,” said the disappointed student. “At each time that I say I will work harder, you say it will take me longer. Why do you say that?” Replied the Master, “When you have one eye on the goal, you only have one eye on the path.”

This is the dilemma I’ve faced within the American education system. We are so focused on a goal, whether it be passing a test, or graduating as first in the class. However, in this way, we do not really learn. We do whatever it takes to achieve our original objective.

Some of you may be thinking, “Well, if you pass a test, or become valedictorian, didn’t you learn something? Well, yes, you learned something, but not all that you could have. Perhaps, you only learned how to memorize names, places, and dates to later on forget in order to clear your mind for the next test. School is not all that it can be. Right now, it is a place for most people to determine that their goal is to get out as soon as possible.

I am now accomplishing that goal. I am graduating. I should look at this as a positive experience, especially being at the top of my class. However, in retrospect, I cannot say that I am any more intelligent than my peers. I can attest that I am only the best at doing what I am told and working the system. Yet, here I stand, and I am supposed to be proud that I have completed this period of indoctrination. I will leave in the fall to go on to the next phase expected of me, in order to receive a paper document that certifies that I am capable of work. But I contest that I am a human being, a thinker, an adventurer – not a worker. A worker is someone who is trapped within repetition – a slave of the system set up before him. But now, I have successfully shown that I was the best slave. I did what I was told to the extreme. While others sat in class and doodled to later become great artists, I sat in class to take notes and become a great test-taker. While others would come to class without their homework done because they were reading about an interest of theirs, I never missed an assignment. While others were creating music and writing lyrics, I decided to do extra credit, even though I never needed it. So, I wonder, why did I even want this position? Sure, I earned it, but what will come of it? When I leave educational institutionalism, will I be successful or forever lost? I have no clue about what I want to do with my life; I have no interests because I saw every subject of study as work, and I excelled at every subject just for the purpose of excelling, not learning. And quite frankly, now I’m scared.

John Taylor Gatto, a retired school teacher and activist critical of compulsory schooling, asserts, “We could encourage the best qualities of youthfulness – curiosity, adventure, resilience, the capacity for surprising insight simply by being more flexible about time, texts, and tests, by introducing kids into truly competent adults, and by giving each student what autonomy he or she needs in order to take a risk every now and then. But we don’t do that.” Between these cinderblock walls, we are all expected to be the same. We are trained to ace every standardized test, and those who deviate and see light through a different lens are worthless to the scheme of public education, and therefore viewed with contempt.

H. L. Mencken wrote in The American Mercury for April 1924 that the aim of public education is not “to fill the young of the species with knowledge and awaken their intelligence. … Nothing could be further from the truth. The aim … is simply to reduce as many individuals as possible to the same safe level, to breed and train a standardized citizenry, to put down dissent and originality. That is its aim in the United States.”

Comment: The full passage reads: “The aim of public education is not to spread enlightenment at all; it is simply to reduce as many individuals as possible to the same safe level, to breed and train a standardized citizenry, to down dissent and originality. That is its aim in the United States, whatever pretensions of politicians, pedagogues other such mountebanks, and that is its aim everywhere else.”

To illustrate this idea, doesn’t it perturb you to learn about the idea of “critical thinking.” Is there really such a thing as “uncritically thinking?” To think is to process information in order to form an opinion. But if we are not critical when processing this information, are we really thinking? Or are we mindlessly accepting other opinions as truth?

This was happening to me, and if it wasn’t for the rare occurrence of an avant-garde tenth grade English teacher, Donna Bryan, who allowed me to open my mind and ask questions before accepting textbook doctrine, I would have been doomed. I am now enlightened, but my mind still feels disabled. I must retrain myself and constantly remember how insane this ostensibly sane place really is.

And now here I am in a world guided by fear, a world suppressing the uniqueness that lies inside each of us, a world where we can either acquiesce to the inhuman nonsense of corporatism and materialism or insist on change. We are not enlivened by an educational system that clandestinely sets us up for jobs that could be automated, for work that need not be done, for enslavement without fervency for meaningful achievement. We have no choices in life when money is our motivational force. Our motivational force ought to be passion, but this is lost from the moment we step into a system that trains us, rather than inspires us.

We are more than robotic bookshelves, conditioned to blurt out facts we were taught in school. We are all very special, every human on this planet is so special, so aren’t we all deserving of something better, of using our minds for innovation, rather than memorization, for creativity, rather than futile activity, for rumination rather than stagnation? We are not here to get a degree, to then get a job, so we can consume industry-approved placation after placation. There is more, and more still.

The saddest part is that the majority of students don’t have the opportunity to reflect as I did. The majority of students are put through the same brainwashing techniques in order to create a complacent labor force working in the interests of large corporations and secretive government, and worst of all, they are completely unaware of it. I will never be able to turn back these 18 years. I can’t run away to another country with an education system meant to enlighten rather than condition. This part of my life is over, and I want to make sure that no other child will have his or her potential suppressed by powers meant to exploit and control. We are human beings. We are thinkers, dreamers, explorers, artists, writers, engineers. We are anything we want to be – but only if we have an educational system that supports us rather than holds us down. A tree can grow, but only if its roots are given a healthy foundation.

For those of you out there that must continue to sit in desks and yield to the authoritarian ideologies of instructors, do not be disheartened. You still have the opportunity to stand up, ask questions, be critical, and create your own perspective. Demand a setting that will provide you with intellectual capabilities that allow you to expand your mind instead of directing it. Demand that you be interested in class. Demand that the excuse, “You have to learn this for the test” is not good enough for you. Education is an excellent tool, if used properly, but focus more on learning rather than getting good grades.

For those of you that work within the system that I am condemning, I do not mean to insult; I intend to motivate. You have the power to change the incompetencies of this system. I know that you did not become a teacher or administrator to see your students bored. You cannot accept the authority of the governing bodies that tell you what to teach, how to teach it, and that you will be punished if you do not comply. Our potential is at stake.

For those of you that are now leaving this establishment, I say, do not forget what went on in these classrooms. Do not abandon those that come after you. We are the new future and we are not going to let tradition stand. We will break down the walls of corruption to let a garden of knowledge grow throughout America. Once educated properly, we will have the power to do anything, and best of all, we will only use that power for good, for we will be cultivated and wise. We will not accept anything at face value. We will ask questions, and we will demand truth.

So, here I stand. I am not standing here as valedictorian by myself. I was molded by my environment, by all of my peers who are sitting here watching me. I couldn’t have accomplished this without all of you. It was all of you who truly made me the person I am today. It was all of you who were my competition, yet my backbone. In that way, we are all valedictorians.

I am now supposed to say farewell to this institution, those who maintain it, and those who stand with me and behind me, but I hope this farewell is more of a “see you later” when we are all working together to rear a pedagogic movement. But first, let’s go get those pieces of paper that tell us that we’re smart enough to do so!

CLAIMING YOUR ANCESTORS LANDS — ALLODIAL ISSUES…..

The following article was posted in the IOLANI – The Royal Hawk.

This message is being sent again because the EXHIBIT section was not covered.

The legal documents should contain the following in the following order:

1) Cover page (covers ancestors name, RP/Royal Patent Number, LCA/ Land Commission Award number

2) Affidavit/Certification (family genealogies)

3) Heirs and Assigns page

4) EXHIBITS (Write EXHIBITS in top right hand corner):
a. RP/Royal Patent LCA/Land Commission Award brief history (shows names of deceased owners and successors)
b. Survey Notes (obtain from the Archives, Honolulu, Oahu, Hawaii) which shows the map, dimensions of the land(s). (ask the Archivist how to obtain your survey notes….. also ask how to look at the books available documenting awards from the Great Mahele/ Kamehameha III period, an extra step to take is to find out the testimonies in regards to the parcel(s)/lands belonging to your families.

5) JURAT, NOTARY page

6) Xerox two (2) or more sets. The notary usually wants to do only two (2) for a set. If more copies are needed for family members, you could make copies after the notary signs the documents, and even after the filing is completed.

7) obtain a notary signature from your Credit Union, bank — First Hawaiian Bank has a preferred customer account that you may be able to qualify for……worth it because the cost of a Notary will be nothing/free……….at the Credit Unions and some banks also give free notary signature……cousin paid about $50 a couple of weeks ago —$5 per notary signature.

8) take the two (2) sets of documents to the Bureau of Conveyances, Regular System section and pay $25 for a set which covers up to 20 pages. Any amount of pages over 20 will cost $1 per page.

9) The Bureau of Conveyances located on Punchbowl Street is open in the mornings till 3:30 p.m. They do not accept documents later than that time. (Mondays-Fridays (Holidays closed)).

How many aboriginal Hawaiians (that’s exactly what Queen Liliuokalani documented us to be) will celebrate a FAKE State IGNORING THE TRUTH!……

Opposition to the Akaka Bill continues………..the Bill covers “Hawaiians”……….don’t forget that the Rice vs. Cayetano Case years ago gave recognition to ALL BORN IN THE ISLANDS and recognized as “Hawaiians”…….

We are kanaka maoli, “aboriginal Hawaiians” and that’s the truth!

Doesn’t this ‘revisionist history’ excite you?    lol…………it gets lots of people excited nowadays too!

aloha.

p.s. have a fun and safe weekend…….

TRULY A FAKE STATE WITH PIRATES

Review by Amelia Gora (2010)

Many don’t know the activities of Prince Kuhio Kalanianaole and the criminal activities that he engaged in which included the conflict with his Aunt Queen Kapiolani in 1898.

Queen Kapiolani instructed the two (Princes Kuhio and Kawananakoa) to file a deed to lands AFTER she died. They both filed it as soon as they got it.

Queen Kapiolani is on record as having Opposed the Action (see The Pacific Commercial Advertiser/Advertiser, Honolulu, June 28, 1898) “KAPIOLANI ASKS THAT DEED TO PRINCES BE ANNULED”.

Court action move in favor of the Pirates (as usual – no justice). Kuhio left.

According to “Wikipedia” Kuhio was part of the British Army in the Boer War (1899 to 1902)….did he participate or was he on the run from the Hawaiian Islands? The following shows his activities according to “Wikipedia”:

“In 1901 Kūhiō switched parties and joined the Republicans. He was disillusioned with the lack of progress made by the Home Rule Party, and its control by “radicals”. The Republicans eagerly accepted him into the fold. By endorsing the heir to the throne of the Hawaiian kingdom they gained significant support in local communities, and Kūhiō was given a strong leadership position.

Kūhiō was elected delegate to the U.S. Congress in a landslide victory for the Republicans, and helped establish a Republican hold on the legislature. He served from March 4, 1903 until his death, wining a total of ten elections.[7] During this time he instituted local government at the county level, creating the county system still used today in Hawaiʻi. He staffed the civil service positions that resulted with Hawaiian appointees.[citation needed] This move combined the political patronage system of nineteenth century American politics with the traditional Hawaiian chiefly role of benificiently delegating authority to trusted retainers[citation needed].

In 1903, Kūhiō reorganized the Royal Order of Kamehameha I, which held the first observance of the Kamehameha Day holiday in 1904.[3] He was a founder of the first Hawaiian Civic Club on December 7, 1918.[8] He helped organize a centenary celebration of the death of Kamehameha I in 1919.[9]
The Prince Kūhiō Statue at Waikīkī

In 1919 Kūhiō introduced in Congress the first-ever Hawaii Statehood Act. It would be another 40 years before seeing fruition.

During this period the Hawaiian Homes Commission Act of 1921 was signed by President Warren Harding. Despite Kūhiō’s wishes, the Act contained high blood-quantum requirements, and leased land instead of granting it fee-simple, creating a perpetual government institution. This act and the others that followed continue to be controversial in contemporary Hawaiian politics, and have been used to justify more recent race-based legislation like the Akaka Bill.[10] He served on the first Hawaiian Homes Commission starting on September 16, 1921.[9]

Kūhiō died on January 7, 1922. His body was interred near his royal family at the Royal Mausoleum known as Mauna ʻAla in Nuʻuanu on the island of Oʻahu.[11] He is memorialized by streets, beaches, the Prince Kūhiō Plaza Shopping Center, and the Prince Kuhio Federal Building named in his honor. Prince Kūhiō Day on March 26 is a state holiday that honors Kūhiō’s birth.[3]

*****************************************************************************************************************

Prince Kuhio tried to have Queen Liliuokalani declared incompetent when she signed a will.

In Queen Liliuokalani’s will, she denied that she signed a Trust with Archibald Cleghorn, Curtis Iaukea, and William O. Smith.

In 1918, Prince Kuhio took an out of Court settlement to the claims of Queen Liliuokalani’s opposition to a claimed Trust.

Research continues.

It is important that these important facts be shared with our family(ies), friends, and all around the World.

Queen Liliuokalani’s issues remains unresolved.

Pirates/Prostitute Pirates include well known persons in the Hawaiian Islands, who were treasonous, criminal deviants posing as friends, and claiming to help our Hawaiian people but were in actuality criminals who aided the PIRATES OF THE PACIFIC: Charles Reed Bishop and Friends, the Warring U.S., England, bankers who premeditated, criminally, wrongfully dethroned our Queen Liliuokalani from a neutral, non-violent, friendly nation in 1893.

The real speech re-created by an actor

If you know your history, you know that in 1934 there was an attempted coup in the United States that was thwarted largely due to the efforts of U.S. Marine Corps Major General Smedley Butler (ret.)

Look it up.

Among other things, Butler was only one of 19 people ever awarded the Medal of Honor twice and the only person to be awarded a Marine Corps Brevet Medal and a Medal of Honor for two different actions.

After it dawned on him how his heroism and the heroism of the troops under his command had been misused, he wrote a book called “War is a Racket” which I can virtually guarantee you never heard about in school.

Butler concluded there are only two reasons to ever take up arms:

1. To defend the country against real – not manufactured – attacks
2. To defend the Bill of Rights

Sounds good to me.

****************************** **********
editor’s notes: Highlights of the Film “WAR IS A RACKET”

Most Vicious, dollars, and lives

Military generals are high class “muscle men” for corporations.

Racket: conducted for the few at the expense of many.

21,000 new millionaires made in World Wars.

War is exploited by a few and the general public pays for it.

The people do not profit.

52 billion dollars still owed.

Soldiers pay -

Profits of War Made by the Same Corporations.

Soldier’s Pay includes Medals.

Boy’s like to be decorated.

They use GOD to KILL>>>KILL>>>KILL…

Soldiers paid only $30 a month………to KILL or be KILLED.

Constrict Capital, Labor and Management……

Restrict Pay to All Government Workers Equivalent to SOLDIER’S PAY.

Limited Plebiscite Needed to Vote for War from ALL CITIZENS….excludes the Profiteers.

Fiendish chemicals etc…….minus the mechanical builders and profiteers input for future wars, so that all will focus on Peace vs. WARS.

TO HELL WITH WAR!!~~~

aloha.

All you have to do is expell the Imperialists…er worldwide conglomerates and set the the Kingdom of Hawaii. Good Luck.

INITIALLY THE U.S. ARMY DENIED USING DU AND OTHER TOXINS HAZARDOUS THAT’S EVEN LETHAL TO OUR HEALTH. WHEN INOUYE STATED THAT DU WAS USED; ONLY THEN DID THE ARMY ADMIT TO USING IT BUT SAID IT WAS HARMLESS. NOW THEY MAKE YOU SIGN A WAIVER WHEN ENTERING THE AREA BECAUSE IT IS DEADLY TO HUMAN LIFE.

THEY WANT A LICENSE TO CONTINUE USING AND STORING DU IN HAWAI’I. WHAT’S WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE. THIS IS ONE OF THE REASONS WE DIDN’T WANT THE STRYKER BRIGADE IN HAWAI’I BECAUSE DU IS USED BY IT EVEN FOR TRAINING MANEUVERS. THIS IMPEDES OUR GATHERING RIGHTS IN NEARBY AREAS.

THE LARGE AREAS THE MILITARY USES; THEY DON’T CLEAN UP BECAUSE IT’S TOO EXPENSIVE AND DIFFICULT TO CLEAN THE TERRAIN. AFTER THEY’RE DONE THEY WILL PUSH FOR THOSE AREAS TO BE A RESERVE THAT FORBIDS ENTRY BECAUSE OF THE DANGERS TO HUMAN LIFE.

THE U.S AND ITS MILITARY MUST DE-OCCUPY HAWAI’I AND CLEAN UP ALL THEIR TOXIC, HAZARDOUS MESS. WHAT THEY LEAVE BEHIND IS PART OF THE COVENANT THEY’VE MADE WITH SOME OF THE HAWAIIAN ORGANIZATIONS.

IN THE AKAKA BILL IT STRICTLY STATES THAT THE MILITARY WILL NOT BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR ANYTHING AND WE ARE NOT ALLOWED TO SUE THEM OR ASK FOR REPARATIONS AND RESTITUTION. IN OTHER WORDS, THE MILITARY CAN DO WHATEVER THEY WANT AND NOT BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE.

READ THIS ARTICLE AND WEEP; YOU’VE BEEN SOLD OUT BY THE NATIVE HAWAIIAN COALITION THAT SIGNED A COVENANT WITH THE U.S. ARMY. THE PEOPLE OF HAWAII JUST HAVE BEEN HAD BY THE U.S. AND IT’S MILITARY. NOW YOU CAN REALLY JOIN HANDS WITH THE MARSHALL ISLANDERS, THE IRAQIS, AND THE HIROSHIMA VICTIMS. JOIN THE CLUB!

LOOK FORWARD TO GROSSLY DEFORMED BABIES AND DEATHS BY LEUKEMIA AND OTHER CANCERS; ESPECIALLY THOSE LIVING IN MAKUA, WAIANAE AND NANAKULI WHO ARE DOWNWINDERS OF DU NANO-DUSTS. AS IT IS, THERE HAVE ALREADY BEEN A RISE OF LEUKEMIA AND OTHER CANCERS IN THAT AREA DUE TO DU WHICH THE U.S. ARMY CLAIMS THEY NEVER USED AND IT IS HARMLESS. DON’T SAY WE NEVER ALERTED YOU ABOUT THIS; BECAUSE WE HAVE AND SOME EVEN SCOFFED US ABOUT IT. AGAIN, READ IT AND WEEP.

“Area Unsafe”: Depleted Uranium in Hawai’i ranges
August 11, 2010 by kyle
http://www.bigislandweekly. com/articles/2010/08/11/read/ news/news02…
Report: Area unsafe
PTA visitors speak up about having to sign a safety waiver
By Alan D. Mcnarie
Wednesday, August 11, 2010 10:38 AM HST
U. S. Army sources have often contended that the depleted uranium left by spent
shells on its firing ranges at O’ahu’s Schofield Barracks and Hawai’i
Island’s
Pohakuloa Training Area pose no danger to the public.
In 2008, Army officials told the Hawaii County Council that DU did not pose a
health risk to the public, even though the Saddle Road passes through
Pohakuloa
Training Area, where DU shell fragments had been found.
In a recent letter to Rep. Mazie Hirono, Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Army
Addison Davis, IV, wrote that
“Many independent scientific studies of uranium in the environment show that DU
presents no significant ‘environmental health or safety hazard,’
especially at
soil concentration of the DU on Hawaii’s ranges.”
“Based on data gathered and careful analysis of the current situation, there is no
immediate or imminent health risk to people who work at Schofield
Barracks or
Pohakuloa Training Area (PTA)
or live in communities adjacent to these military facilities from the DU present in
the impact areas… Studies conducted by numerous non-military agencies,
including
the World Health Organization and the Department of Health and Human
Services,
have not found credible evidence linking DU to radiation-induced illnesses Studies
conducted by numerous non-military agencies, including the World Health
Organization and the Department of Health and Human Services, have not
found
credible evidence linking DU to radiation-induced illnesses,” claims the
Army’s
DU information website, http://www.imcom.pac.army.mil/ du.
But the Army took a different position when representatives from several Native
Hawaiian groups requested access to the West Range at Schofield Barracks
on
O’ahu on May 27.
Before being allowed into Schofield, all were asked to sign a waiver of responsibility
acknowledging, among other things,
that they knew DU was potentially hazardous to their health.”
“I fully understand and by my signature acknowledge that I understand, West Range
at Schofield Barracks is currently constructing the Battle Area Complex
(BAX)
which includes clean up of unexploded ordnance (UXO) including potential

chemical warfare munitions (CWM) and depleted uranium (DU)…,” the waiver
read,
in part. “I understand that the ENTIRE RESERVATION IS DANGEROUS AND
UNSAFE due
to the presence of surface and subsurface UNEXPLODED ORDNANCE and
DEPLETED
URANIUM; that there may be hazardous conditions and ordnance on or under
the
surface of the Reservation; and that unexploded ordnance may explode
nearby
causing serious bodily harm, injury and death and that depleted uranium
particles can be ingested from the soil or inhaled by airborne dust that
may
cause adverse health effects.” [Words capitalized as in original.]
“I signed that form twice,” said Hawaiian activist Terri Mullins, who has made two
trips to Schofield because ancient Hawaiian remains had been uncovered
during
construction of a new training area for the army’s new Stryker attack
force —
the same force for which rangeland has been purchased for a new training
area at
Pohakuloa, whose firing range has also been contaminated by DU spotting
rounds
fired by the so-called ‘Davy Crockett,” a Cold-War-era nuclear artillery

piece.
Mullins, who represents a Hawaiian group called Kipuka said that on the May 27 trip, she
was accompanied by members from the O’ahu Island Burial Council, Hui
Malama I Na
Kupuna, the Wahiawa Hawaiian Civic Club, the Office of Hawaiian Affairs,
the
American Friends Service Committee, Aha Kukuniloko and Hui Pu.
All, she said, were asked to sign waivers. Big Island Weekly confirmed that at least
one other activist who had been on that trip had signed an identical
waiver.
The reference to the hazards of “inhaled by airborne dust” containing DU appears to
echo concerns expressed by opponents who think fine airborne particles
of DU,
called “aerosols,” could cause cancer and other diseases.
The Army in the past has scoffed at such risks.
Its application to the NRC to legally possess the DU at Pohakuloa, for instance,
states that “available information indicates that depleted uranium metal

generally remains in the immediate vicinity where initially deposited,
with
limited migration over the period that the materials are present.
But critics such as Dr. Mike Reimer, a geologist and radiation expert who lives in
Kona, disagree.
“It is an alloy and a study by the U.S. Air Force revealed that various DU alloys,
not quite the same as claimed to have been used at Pohakuloa, are 100
percent
effective in producing tumors in mice that then metastasize the lungs,”
wrote
Reimer, in an e-mail to Sierra Club researcher Cory Harden. “Solid (or
alloyed)
U[ranium] as a respirable absorbed particle in your lung will produce a
radiation dose much greater than the same size particle of oceanic
basaltic rock
containing 0.t par per million [of] uranium [In other words, naturally
occurring
uranium found in Hawai'i's rocks].”
The most probable vector for exposure to DU on the Big Island, maintained Reimer,
was the inhalation of tiny, windborne particles, or “aerosols”:
“As long as bombs drop and winds blow in the spotting round test area, there will be
aerosol production and transport of DU. Aerosols may form and drop
nearby, but
they can be remobilized by constant bombing.
“Any DU residue present is limited to impact areas well within the perimeter of
operational ranges,” the Army’s DU website maintains.
“These areas are not publicly accessible. Very few range and safety personnel access
the impact areas of our operational ranges. Those people that work in
these
areas are trained to recognize potential hazards associated with
military
munitions.”
Why, if the danger of DU is limited to impact areas, Native Hawaiians visiting a
construction site would be warned about it or told that
“THE ENTIRE RESERVATION IS DANGEROUS AND UNSAFE,” remains an interesting question.

Colonel Douglas S. Mulbury:

As noticed via U.S. Postal Service Certified Mail 7010 0780 0000 2733 3438 of July 12, 2010,

your organization has failed to identify your legal counsel so that we may resolve this specific

matter of exposure, damages and scattering of our iwikupuna [human remains]; and to provide

the United States Military, et al, the opportunity to affirm ownership of the land sites in question.

As previously stated, the United States Military’s continued disrespect and insensitivity for our

Hawaiian National Private Citizen’s Aina, our cultural rights and our Hawaiian National burial

sites which contain iwi [bones] of our aina [family]. Subsequently your actions appear intentional

and are an affront and an insult to the living of our deceased whom are buried in our land.

We repeat, We do not authorize nor approve of your methods for handling our aina [family]

iwikupuna [human remains] and continue to object to your ignoring and suppression of the lawful

rights of Hawaiian National Private Citizens of our Hawaiian Kingdom National Government.

We will not compromise what our kupuna ma taught to perpetuate:

“… In the old days the inheritance of the aina [family] burial place, the caves and secret

burial places of our ancestors was handed down from these to their descendants without

the intrusion of a single stranger unless by consent of the descendant, so wherever a

death occurred the body would be conveyed to its inheritance. These immovable barriers

belonged to burial rights for all time. The rule of ali’i and their agents might change, but

the burial rights of the aina [family] survived on their lands.”

Please contact me directly so we can affirm a scheduling of an on-site Haleauau meeting at

5am on Friday August 20, 2010 to bring closure to your organization’s remiss. The Army

Range Control Section and your contractor, Parsons/Keeno, will be required to STOP all

associated construction work and training activities for the entire day. The Army will also

provide transportation to/from and back – Kukaniloko to Haleauau for Hawaiian Lineal

Descendants.

Please contact me directly for “corrective actions”.

Amelia,

Chronic illnesses, are so real among housless that was exposed to severly by the truckers ..trucking in poison into Waianae by the Pentagon Tad Davis.

To build data information has to be done by everyone to unravel the reason why we need to stop the military from obtaining this license.

Sponge bob’s of the century that is what we are.

Control the food, the energy, the banking and that is the top down.

Spooky that’s exactly what I said at a military community meeting where Annelle Amaral was facilitating at Nanakuli High School. I said that we would have to put our ovaries on ice, if we want a population of Na Kanaka in the future.

Amazing infertility, I’m listening and am very tired will come back and try to listen to her again

Focus on your studies take care yourself.

After all of that Kelii Lopez Olelo is one of three nominees for Bishop Estate Trustee can you imagine that? She walks into Waianae rapes our Na Kanaka, rip outs our na’au and feeds her spoils to the corporate sharks.

Ashes remains.

It would be ironic if she gets this position. I can just imagine the hill will be blood red. But what the hell we have poison dust in our community thanks to bloodthirstyAnnelle rich and famous career.

by numoleen | 1 year ago | 62,999 views

The real speech re-created by an actor

If you know your history, you know that in 1934 there was an attempted coup in the United States that was thwarted largely due to the efforts of U.S. Marine Corps Major General Smedley Butler (ret.)

Look it up.

Among other things, Butler was only one of 19 people ever awarded the Medal of Honor twice and the only person to be awarded a Marine Corps Brevet Medal and a Medal of Honor for two different actions.

After it dawned on him how his heroism and the heroism of the troops under his command had been misused, he wrote a book called “War is a Racket” which I can virtually guarantee you never heard about in school.

Butler concluded there are only two reasons to ever take up arms:

1. To defend the country against real – not manufactured – attacks
2. To defend the Bill of Rights

Sounds good to me.

****************************** **********
editor’s notes: Highlights of the Film “WAR IS A RACKET”

Most Vicious, dollars, and lives

Military generals are high class “muscle men” for corporations.

Racket: conducted for the few at the expense of many.

21,000 new millionaires made in World Wars.

War is exploited by a few and the general public pays for it.

The people do not profit.

52 billion dollars still owed.

Soldiers pay -

Profits of War Made by the Same Corporations.

Soldier’s Pay includes Medals.

Boy’s like to be decorated.

They use GOD to KILL>>>KILL>>>KILL…

Soldiers paid only $30 a month………to KILL or be KILLED.

Constrict Capital, Labor and Management……

Restrict Pay to All Government Workers Equivalent to SOLDIER’S PAY.

Limited Plebiscite Needed to Vote for War from ALL CITIZENS….excludes the Profiteers.

Fiendish chemicals etc…….minus the mechanical builders and profiteers input for future wars, so that all will focus on Peace vs. WARS.

TO HELL WITH WAR!!~~~

aloha.

All you have to do is expell the Imperialists…er worldwide conglomerates and set the the Kingdom of Hawaii. Good Luck.

INITIALLY THE U.S. ARMY DENIED USING DU AND OTHER TOXINS HAZARDOUS THAT’S EVEN LETHAL TO OUR HEALTH. WHEN INOUYE STATED THAT DU WAS USED; ONLY THEN DID THE ARMY ADMIT TO USING IT BUT SAID IT WAS HARMLESS. NOW THEY MAKE YOU SIGN A WAIVER WHEN ENTERING THE AREA BECAUSE IT IS DEADLY TO HUMAN LIFE.

THEY WANT A LICENSE TO CONTINUE USING AND STORING DU IN HAWAI’I. WHAT’S WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE. THIS IS ONE OF THE REASONS WE DIDN’T WANT THE STRYKER BRIGADE IN HAWAI’I BECAUSE DU IS USED BY IT EVEN FOR TRAINING MANEUVERS. THIS IMPEDES OUR GATHERING RIGHTS IN NEARBY AREAS.

THE LARGE AREAS THE MILITARY USES; THEY DON’T CLEAN UP BECAUSE IT’S TOO EXPENSIVE AND DIFFICULT TO CLEAN THE TERRAIN. AFTER THEY’RE DONE THEY WILL PUSH FOR THOSE AREAS TO BE A RESERVE THAT FORBIDS ENTRY BECAUSE OF THE DANGERS TO HUMAN LIFE.

THE U.S AND ITS MILITARY MUST DE-OCCUPY HAWAI’I AND CLEAN UP ALL THEIR TOXIC, HAZARDOUS MESS. WHAT THEY LEAVE BEHIND IS PART OF THE COVENANT THEY’VE MADE WITH SOME OF THE HAWAIIAN ORGANIZATIONS.

IN THE AKAKA BILL IT STRICTLY STATES THAT THE MILITARY WILL NOT BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR ANYTHING AND WE ARE NOT ALLOWED TO SUE THEM OR ASK FOR REPARATIONS AND RESTITUTION. IN OTHER WORDS, THE MILITARY CAN DO WHATEVER THEY WANT AND NOT BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE.

READ THIS ARTICLE AND WEEP; YOU’VE BEEN SOLD OUT BY THE NATIVE HAWAIIAN COALITION THAT SIGNED A COVENANT WITH THE U.S. ARMY. THE PEOPLE OF HAWAII JUST HAVE BEEN HAD BY THE U.S. AND IT’S MILITARY. NOW YOU CAN REALLY JOIN HANDS WITH THE MARSHALL ISLANDERS, THE IRAQIS, AND THE HIROSHIMA VICTIMS. JOIN THE CLUB!

LOOK FORWARD TO GROSSLY DEFORMED BABIES AND DEATHS BY LEUKEMIA AND OTHER CANCERS; ESPECIALLY THOSE LIVING IN MAKUA, WAIANAE AND NANAKULI WHO ARE DOWNWINDERS OF DU NANO-DUSTS. AS IT IS, THERE HAVE ALREADY BEEN A RISE OF LEUKEMIA AND OTHER CANCERS IN THAT AREA DUE TO DU WHICH THE U.S. ARMY CLAIMS THEY NEVER USED AND IT IS HARMLESS. DON’T SAY WE NEVER ALERTED YOU ABOUT THIS; BECAUSE WE HAVE AND SOME EVEN SCOFFED US ABOUT IT. AGAIN, READ IT AND WEEP.

“Area Unsafe”: Depleted Uranium in Hawai’i ranges
August 11, 2010 by kyle
http://www.bigislandweekly. com/articles/2010/08/11/read/ news/news02…
Report: Area unsafe
PTA visitors speak up about having to sign a safety waiver
By Alan D. Mcnarie
Wednesday, August 11, 2010 10:38 AM HST
U. S. Army sources have often contended that the depleted uranium left by spent
shells on its firing ranges at O’ahu’s Schofield Barracks and Hawai’i
Island’s
Pohakuloa Training Area pose no danger to the public.
In 2008, Army officials told the Hawaii County Council that DU did not pose a
health risk to the public, even though the Saddle Road passes through
Pohakuloa
Training Area, where DU shell fragments had been found.
In a recent letter to Rep. Mazie Hirono, Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Army
Addison Davis, IV, wrote that
“Many independent scientific studies of uranium in the environment show that DU
presents no significant ‘environmental health or safety hazard,’
especially at
soil concentration of the DU on Hawaii’s ranges.”
“Based on data gathered and careful analysis of the current situation, there is no
immediate or imminent health risk to people who work at Schofield
Barracks or
Pohakuloa Training Area (PTA)
or live in communities adjacent to these military facilities from the DU present in
the impact areas… Studies conducted by numerous non-military agencies,
including
the World Health Organization and the Department of Health and Human
Services,
have not found credible evidence linking DU to radiation-induced illnesses Studies
conducted by numerous non-military agencies, including the World Health
Organization and the Department of Health and Human Services, have not
found
credible evidence linking DU to radiation-induced illnesses,” claims the
Army’s
DU information website, http://www.imcom.pac.army.mil/ du.
But the Army took a different position when representatives from several Native
Hawaiian groups requested access to the West Range at Schofield Barracks
on
O’ahu on May 27.
Before being allowed into Schofield, all were asked to sign a waiver of responsibility
acknowledging, among other things,
that they knew DU was potentially hazardous to their health.”
“I fully understand and by my signature acknowledge that I understand, West Range
at Schofield Barracks is currently constructing the Battle Area Complex
(BAX)
which includes clean up of unexploded ordnance (UXO) including potential

chemical warfare munitions (CWM) and depleted uranium (DU)…,” the waiver
read,
in part. “I understand that the ENTIRE RESERVATION IS DANGEROUS AND
UNSAFE due
to the presence of surface and subsurface UNEXPLODED ORDNANCE and
DEPLETED
URANIUM; that there may be hazardous conditions and ordnance on or under
the
surface of the Reservation; and that unexploded ordnance may explode
nearby
causing serious bodily harm, injury and death and that depleted uranium
particles can be ingested from the soil or inhaled by airborne dust that
may
cause adverse health effects.” [Words capitalized as in original.]
“I signed that form twice,” said Hawaiian activist Terri Mullins, who has made two
trips to Schofield because ancient Hawaiian remains had been uncovered
during
construction of a new training area for the army’s new Stryker attack
force —
the same force for which rangeland has been purchased for a new training
area at
Pohakuloa, whose firing range has also been contaminated by DU spotting
rounds
fired by the so-called ‘Davy Crockett,” a Cold-War-era nuclear artillery

piece.
Mullins, who represents a Hawaiian group called Kipuka said that on the May 27 trip, she
was accompanied by members from the O’ahu Island Burial Council, Hui
Malama I Na
Kupuna, the Wahiawa Hawaiian Civic Club, the Office of Hawaiian Affairs,
the
American Friends Service Committee, Aha Kukuniloko and Hui Pu.
All, she said, were asked to sign waivers. Big Island Weekly confirmed that at least
one other activist who had been on that trip had signed an identical
waiver.
The reference to the hazards of “inhaled by airborne dust” containing DU appears to
echo concerns expressed by opponents who think fine airborne particles
of DU,
called “aerosols,” could cause cancer and other diseases.
The Army in the past has scoffed at such risks.
Its application to the NRC to legally possess the DU at Pohakuloa, for instance,
states that “available information indicates that depleted uranium metal

generally remains in the immediate vicinity where initially deposited,
with
limited migration over the period that the materials are present.
But critics such as Dr. Mike Reimer, a geologist and radiation expert who lives in
Kona, disagree.
“It is an alloy and a study by the U.S. Air Force revealed that various DU alloys,
not quite the same as claimed to have been used at Pohakuloa, are 100
percent
effective in producing tumors in mice that then metastasize the lungs,”
wrote
Reimer, in an e-mail to Sierra Club researcher Cory Harden. “Solid (or
alloyed)
U[ranium] as a respirable absorbed particle in your lung will produce a
radiation dose much greater than the same size particle of oceanic
basaltic rock
containing 0.t par per million [of] uranium [In other words, naturally
occurring
uranium found in Hawai'i's rocks].”
The most probable vector for exposure to DU on the Big Island, maintained Reimer,
was the inhalation of tiny, windborne particles, or “aerosols”:
“As long as bombs drop and winds blow in the spotting round test area, there will be
aerosol production and transport of DU. Aerosols may form and drop
nearby, but
they can be remobilized by constant bombing.
“Any DU residue present is limited to impact areas well within the perimeter of
operational ranges,” the Army’s DU website maintains.
“These areas are not publicly accessible. Very few range and safety personnel access
the impact areas of our operational ranges. Those people that work in
these
areas are trained to recognize potential hazards associated with
military
munitions.”
Why, if the danger of DU is limited to impact areas, Native Hawaiians visiting a
construction site would be warned about it or told that
“THE ENTIRE RESERVATION IS DANGEROUS AND UNSAFE,” remains an interesting question.

REGARDING: DISRESPECTFULLY REMOVING IDENTIFIED HAWAIIAN NATIONAL

HUMAN REMAINS (IWIKUPUNA) FROM GRAVESITES AT HALEAUAU,

LIHUE, ISLAND OF O’AHU, KO HAWAII PAE AINA

Colonel Douglas S. Mulbury:

As noticed via U.S. Postal Service Certified Mail 7010 0780 0000 2733 3438 of July 12, 2010,

your organization has failed to identify your legal counsel so that we may resolve this specific

matter of exposure, damages and scattering of our iwikupuna [human remains]; and to provide

the United States Military, et al, the opportunity to affirm ownership of the land sites in question.

As previously stated, the United States Military’s continued disrespect and insensitivity for our

Hawaiian National Private Citizen’s Aina, our cultural rights and our Hawaiian National burial

sites which contain iwi [bones] of our aina [family]. Subsequently your actions appear intentional

and are an affront and an insult to the living of our deceased whom are buried in our land.

We repeat, We do not authorize nor approve of your methods for handling our aina [family]

iwikupuna [human remains] and continue to object to your ignoring and suppression of the lawful

rights of Hawaiian National Private Citizens of our Hawaiian Kingdom National Government.

We will not compromise what our kupuna ma taught to perpetuate:

“… In the old days the inheritance of the aina [family] burial place, the caves and secret

burial places of our ancestors was handed down from these to their descendants without

the intrusion of a single stranger unless by consent of the descendant, so wherever a

death occurred the body would be conveyed to its inheritance. These immovable barriers

belonged to burial rights for all time. The rule of ali’i and their agents might change, but

the burial rights of the aina [family] survived on their lands.”

Please contact me directly so we can affirm a scheduling of an on-site Haleauau meeting at

5am on Friday August 20, 2010 to bring closure to your organization’s remiss. The Army

Range Control Section and your contractor, Parsons/Keeno, will be required to STOP all

associated construction work and training activities for the entire day. The Army will also

provide transportation to/from and back – Kukaniloko to Haleauau for Hawaiian Lineal

Descendants.

Please contact me directly for “corrective actions”.

Amelia,

Chronic illnesses, are so real among housless that was exposed to severly by the truckers ..trucking in poison into Waianae by the Pentagon Tad Davis.

To build data information has to be done by everyone to unravel the reason why we need to stop the military from obtaining this license.

Sponge bob’s of the century that is what we are.

Control the food, the energy, the banking and that is the top down.

Spooky that’s exactly what I said at a military community meeting where Annelle Amaral was facilitating at Nanakuli High School. I said that we would have to put our ovaries on ice, if we want a population of Na Kanaka in the future.

Amazing infertility, I’m listening and am very tired will come back and try to listen to her again

After all of that Kelii Lopez Olelo is one of three nominees for Bishop Estate Trustee can you imagine that? She walks into Waianae rapes our Na Kanaka, rip outs our na’au and feeds her spoils to the corporate sharks.

Ashes remains.

It would be ironic if she gets this position. I can just imagine the hill will be blood red. But what the hell we have poison dust in our community thanks to bloodthirstyAnnelle rich and famous career.

I have been listening to all of Leurens video’s

country– NBC, with both MSNBC and CNBC under its wing, as well as NBC news and a variety of “news magazines”– is now owned and controlled by General Electric, one of the nation’s largest defense contractors. Is it not significant that as GE’s various media subsidiaries predictably lined up to cheerlead the use of U.S. military force in Kosovo, it was at the same time posting substantial profits from the sale of the high tech of modern

warfare it so shamelessly
glorifies?..

Royal Person Amelia Gora and Hawaiian Kingdom Records No. 2010-10521

Greetings,

I, Amelia Gora, am one of the owners/OWNERS of the Crown Lands and hereby sending you Notice that you are BANNED from using, approving, etc. the use of nuclear weapons on our families private properties.

Prove that you own Makua, Pohakuloa, Schofield…….you can’t.

Many of our families, as well as the general public, foreign, international, has documents showing that all of you have no interest in our families Private Properties.

All of you will be recorded on the Active Genocide Activities list which will be part of ongoing reasons to charge as acts of piracy(ies) against neutral, friendly people, from a neutral friendly nation recognized criminally usurped due to being bankrupt since 1893, the time of the criminal dethronement of Queen Liliuokalani, if this action to approve nuclear weapons, etc. is not rescinded.

Failure to rescind will also result in ramifications……which includes possibly welcoming other nations to protect our families, friends, lives, health, safety, etc.

The permanent friendship treaty was breached and documented so by our Queen Liliuokalani since 1893.

Cease and Desist from all nuclear weapon use in our Hawaiian archipelago, which still has Royal families who are and remain the true owners.

I, Amelia Gora, represent our Royal families interests in our private properties, as well as in the health, lives, safety of our own and innocent citizens ranging from our aboriginal kanaka maoli thru foreigners including American citizens which you have failed to protect the lives and safety of over time.

The U.S. through President Obama who happens to be a non U.S. citizen, was given notice to leave our Hawaiian lands, specifically Makua, Schofield, Pohakuloa.

It is true that the U.S. are documented belligerent occupiers.

The Hawaiian Kingdom Exists article by Amelia Gora http://www.opednews.com/Diary/Reasons-Why-the-Monarchy-g-by-Amelia-Gora-100307-224.html

See minutes of the entity State of Hawaii http://freelarsensbeach.com/2010/06/17/510/

See the whitehouse website: http://www.whitehouse.gov/assets/formsubmissions/54/c1dc2d2b35964f0392b21da2d9b05b42.pdf

and theiolani.wordpress.com

and other websites for further information.

also see the new video releases interviewing expert, whistleblower, depleted uranium expert, friend, teacher Leuren Moret http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZfZo0OxM6WI

and many others available at http://www.youtube.com

If you already don’t know this, I, Amelia Gora am one of the Royal persons residing as my 3,000 years + ancestors have in our Hawaiian Islands and am not subject to your laws.

Protection of our (family(ies), citizens covering aboriginal Hawaiians thru foreigners (includes American citizens, other nations visitors, etc.) is intended.

As one of the members of Queen Liliuokalani’s descendants/heirs, I hope that you will be mindful of the facts showing that the U.S. has no legal authority here in our Hawaiian Islands because we are beyond the 3-12 miles area from the contiguous United States.

All acts of utilizing military and toxic, nuclear weaponry is simply not O.K. We have done no wrong against all of you.

Kindly respect Private Property owners who happens to be descendants of Kamehameha, who began the Monarchy government in our Hawaiian Islands.

Mahalo (Thank you) and Sincerely,

Amelia Gora, a Royal person

Dear NRC:

Thank you for making it clear that the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is indeed intent on avoiding it’s mandated responsibilities to protect human health and safety from radiological source material. In this instance, the source material is Depleted Uranium which was unleashed at various sites in Hawaii by the US Army from 1961 through 1964 under license SUB 459 provided by the United States Atomic Energy Commission, and continuing unlicensed and thus unlawfully from 1965 through 1968.

From the Nuclear Regulatory Commission’s Memorandum and Order (CLI-10-20), it is apparent that NRC staff’s preferred approach to appeals is to ignore evidence provided to them via the NRC oral arguments process and by e-mail communications. NRC staff apparently lacks the skills necessary to locate the evidence presented to them during oral arguments and via e-mail correspondence. Titles of evidence were provided as well as internet links to cited evidence in certain instances. Therefore it is highly suggested that NRC staff be educated on how to conduct elementary research in order to avoid the appearance of being incompetent.

When petitioners are placed at an intentional disadvantage during oral argument proceedings with incompetent equipment to present evidence to the NRC, if NRC staff requires hard copies or electronic copies of evidence NRC staff should request that petitioners mail hard copies or e-mail electronic copies of the evidence rather than use the excuse that the petitioners did not provide them with the evidence. It is a very poor excuse for the NRC to avoid it’s mandated responsibilities by citing the failure of petitioner(s) to supply evidence, which was presented during oral arguments, attempted to be provided via visual transmission through incompetent equipment provided by the NRC to petitioners during oral arguments, as well as cited via e-mail communications with the NRC.

Ignorance is no excuse for violating NRC’s mandate or the law.

Sincerely,

Isaac Harp

Why World War II ended with Mushroom Clouds
65 years ago, August 6 and 9, 1945: Hiroshima and Nagasaki

by Jacques R. Pauwels

Global Research, August 6, 2010

“On Monday, August 6, 1945, at 8:15 AM, the nuclear bomb ‘Little Boy” was dropped on Hiroshima by an American B-29 bomber, the Enola Gay, directly killing an estimated 80,000 people. By the end of the year, injury and radiation brought total casualties to 90,000-140,000.”[1]

“On August 9, 1945, Nagasaki was the target of the world’s second atomic bomb attack at 11:02 a.m., when the north of the city was destroyed and an estimated 40,000 people were killed by the bomb nicknamed ‘Fat Man.’ The death toll from the atomic bombing totalled 73,884, as well as another 74,909 injured, and another several hundred thousand diseased and dying due to fallout and other illness caused by radiation.”[2]

In the European Theatre, World War II ended in early May 1945 with the capitulation of Nazi Germany. The “Big Three” on the side of the victors – Great Britain, the United States, and the Soviet Union – now faced the complex problem of the postwar reorganization of Europe. The United States had entered the war rather late, in December 1941, and had only started to make a truly significant military contribution to the Allied victory over Germany with the landings in Normandy in June 1944, less than one year before the end of the hostilities. When the war against Germany ended, however, Washington sat firmly and confidently at the table of the victors, determined to achieve what might be called its “war aims.”

As the country that had made the biggest contribution and suffered by far the greatest losses in the conflict against the common Nazi enemy, the Soviet Union wanted major reparation payments from Germany and security against potential future aggression, in the form of the installation in Germany, Poland and other Eastern European countries of governments that would not be hostile to the Soviets, as had been the case before the war. Moscow also expected compensation for territorial losses suffered by the Soviet Union at the time of the Revolution and the Civil War, and finally, the Soviets expected that, with the terrible ordeal of the war behind them, they would be able to resume work on the project of constructing a socialist society. The American and British leaders knew these Soviet aims and had explicitly or implicitly recognized their legitimacy, for example at the conferences of the Big Three in Tehran and Yalta. That did not mean that Washington and London were enthusiastic about the fact that the Soviet Union was to reap these rewards for its war efforts; and there undoubtedly lurked a potential conflict with Washington’s own major objective, namely, the creation of an “open door” for US exports and investments in Western Europe, in defeated Germany, and also in Central and Eastern Europe, liberated by the Soviet Union. In any event, American political and industrial leaders – including Harry Truman, who succeeded Franklin D. Roosevelt as President in the spring of 1945 – had little understanding, and even less sympathy, for even the most basic expectations of the Soviets. These leaders abhorred the thought that the Soviet Union might receive considerable reparations from Germany, because such a bloodletting would eliminate Germany as a potentially extremely profitable market for US exports and investments. Instead, reparations would enable the Soviets to resume work, possibly successfully, on the project of a communist society, a “counter system” to the international capitalist system of which the USA had become the great champion. America’s political and economic elite was undoubtedly also keenly aware that German reparations to the Soviets implied that the German branch plants of US corporations such as Ford and GM, which had produced all sorts of weapons for the Nazis during the war (and made a lot of money in the process[3]) would have to produce for the benefit of the Soviets instead of continuing to enrich US owners and shareholders.

Negotiations among the Big Three would obviously never result in the withdrawal of the Red Army from Germany and Eastern Europe before the Soviet objectives of reparations and security would be at least partly achieved. However, on April 25, 1945, Truman learned that the US would soon dispose of a powerful new weapon, the atom bomb. Possession of this weapon opened up all sorts of previously unthinkable but extremely favorable perspectives, and it is hardly surprising that the new president and his advisors fell under the spell of what the renowned American historian William Appleman Williams has called a “vision of omnipotence.”[4] It certainly no longer appeared necessary to engage in difficult negotiations with the Soviets: thanks to the atom bomb, it would be possible to force Stalin, in spite of earlier agreements, to withdraw the Red Army from Germany and to deny him a say in the postwar affairs of that country, to install “pro-western” and even anti-Soviet regimes in Poland and elsewhere in Eastern Europe, and perhaps even to open up the Soviet Union itself to American investment capital as well as American political and economic influence, thus returning this communist heretic to the bosom of the universal capitalist church.

At the time of the German surrender in May 1945, the bomb was almost, but not quite, ready. Truman therefore stalled as long as possible before finally agreeing to attend a conference of the Big Three in Potsdam in the summer of 1945, where the fate of postwar Europe would be decided. The president had been informed that the bomb would likely be ready by then – ready, that is, to be used as “a hammer,” as he himself stated on one occasion, that he would wave “over the heads of those boys in the Kremlin.”[5] At the Potsdam Conference, which lasted from July 17 to August 2, 1945, Truman did indeed receive the long-awaited message that the atom bomb had been tested successfully on July 16 in New Mexico. As of then, he no longer bothered to present proposals to Stalin, but instead made all sorts of demands; at the same time he rejected out of hand all proposals made by the Soviets, for example concerning German reparation payments, including reasonable proposals based on earlier inter-Allied agreements. Stalin failed to display the hoped-for willingness to capitulate, however, not even when Truman attempted to intimidate him by whispering ominously into his ear that America had acquired an incredible new weapon. The Soviet sphinx, who had certainly already been informed about the American atom bomb, listened in stony silence. Somewhat puzzled, Truman concluded that only an actual demonstration of the atomic bomb would persuade the Soviets to give way. Consequently, no general agreement could be achieved at Potsdam. In fact, little or nothing of substance was decided there. “The main result of the conference,” writes historian Gar Alperovitz, “was a series of decisions to disagree until the next meeting.”[6]

In the meantime the Japanese battled on in the Far East, even though their situation was totally hopeless. They were in fact prepared to surrender, but they insisted on a condition, namely, that Emperor Hirohito would be guaranteed immunity. This contravened the American demand for an unconditional capitulation. In spite of this it should have been possible to end the war on the basis of the Japanese proposal. In fact, the German surrender at Reims three months earlier had not been entirely unconditional. (The Americans had agreed to a German condition, namely, that the armistice would only go into effect after a delay of 45 hours, a delay that would allow as many German army units as possible to slip away from the eastern front in order to surrender to the Americans or the British; many of these units would actually be kept ready – in uniform, armed, and under the command of their own officers – for possible use against the Red Army, as Churchill was to admit after the war.)[7] In any event, Tokyo’s sole condition was far from essential. Indeed, later – after an unconditional surrender had been wrested from the Japanese – the Americans would never bother Hirohito, and it was thanks to Washington that he was to be able to remain emperor for many more decades.[8]

The Japanese believed that they could still afford the luxury of attaching a condition to their offer to surrender because the main force of their land army remained intact, in China, where it had spent most of the war. Tokyo thought that it could use this army to defend Japan itself and thus make the Americans pay a high price for their admittedly inevitable final victory, but this scheme would only work if the Soviet Union stayed out of the war in the Far East; a Soviet entry into the war, on the other hand, would inevitably pin down the Japanese forces on the Chinese mainland. Soviet neutrality, in other words, permitted Tokyo a small measure of hope; not hope for a victory, of course, but hope for American acceptance of their condition concerning the emperor. To a certain extent the war with Japan dragged on, then, because the Soviet Union was not yet involved in it. Already at the Conference of the Big Three in Tehran in 1943, Stalin had promised to declare war on Japan within three months after the capitulation of Germany, and he had reiterated this commitment as recently as July 17, 1945, in Potsdam. Consequently, Washington counted on a Soviet attack on Japan by the middle of August and thus knew only too well that the situation of the Japanese was hopeless. (“Fini Japs when that comes about,” Truman confided to his diary, referring to the expected Soviet entry into the war in the Far East.)[9] In addition, the American navy assured Washington that it was able to prevent the Japanese from transferring their army from China in order to defend the homeland against an American invasion. Since the US navy was undoubtedly able to force Japan to its knees by means of a blockade, an invasion was not even necessary. Deprived of imported necessities such as food and fuel, Japan could be expected to beg to capitulate unconditionally sooner or later.

In order to finish the war against Japan, Truman thus had a number of very attractive options. He could accept the trivial Japanese condition with regard to immunity for their emperor; he could also wait until the Red Army attacked the Japanese in China, thus forcing Tokyo into accepting an unconditional surrender after all; or he could starve Japan to death by means of a naval blockade that would have forced Tokyo to sue for peace sooner or later. Truman and his advisors, however, chose none of these options; instead, they decided to knock Japan out with the atomic bomb. This fateful decision, which was to cost the lives of hundreds of thousands of people, mostly women and children, offered the Americans considerable advantages. First, the bomb might force Tokyo to surrender before the Soviets got involved in the war in Asia, thus making it unnecessary to allow Moscow a say in the coming decisions about postwar Japan, about the territories which had been occupied by Japan (such as Korea and Manchuria), and about the Far East and the Pacific region in general. The USA would then enjoy a total hegemony over that part of the world, something which may be said to have been the true (though unspoken) war aim of Washington in the conflict with Japan. It was in light of this consideration that the strategy of simply blockading Japan into surrender was rejected, since the surrender might not have been forthcoming until after – and possibly well after – the Soviet Union’s entry into the war. (After the war, the U.S. Strategic Bombing Survey stated that “certainly prior to 31 December 1945, Japan would have surrendered, even if the atomic bombs had not been dropped.”)[10]

As far as the American leaders were concerned, a Soviet intervention in the war in the Far East threatened to achieve for the Soviets the same advantage which the Yankees’ relatively late intervention in the war in Europe had produced for the United States, namely, a place at the round table of the victors who would force their will on the defeated enemy, carve occupation zones out of his territory, change borders, determine postwar social-economic and political structures, and thereby derive for themselves enormous benefits and prestige. Washington absolutely did not want the Soviet Union to enjoy this kind of input. The Americans were on the brink of victory over Japan, their great rival in that part of the world. They did not relish the idea of being saddled with a new potential rival, one whose detested communist ideology might become dangerously influential in many Asian countries. By dropping the atomic bomb, the Americans hoped to finish Japan off instantly and go to work in the Far East as cavalier seul, that is, without their victory party being spoiled by unwanted Soviet gate-crashers. Use of the atom bomb offered Washington a second important advantage. Truman’s experience in Potsdam had persuaded him that only an actual demonstration of this new weapon would make Stalin sufficiently pliable. Nuking a “Jap” city, preferably a “virgin” city, where the damage would be especially impressive, thus loomed useful as a means to intimidate the Soviets and induce them to make concessions with respect to Germany, Poland, and the rest of Central and Eastern Europe.

The atomic bomb was ready just before the Soviets became involved in the Far East. Even so, the nuclear pulverization of Hiroshima on August 6, 1945, came too late to prevent the Soviets from entering the war against Japan. Tokyo did not throw in the towel immediately, as the Americans had hoped, and on August 8, 1945 – exactly three months after the German capitulation in Berlin – the Soviets declared war on Japan. The next day, on August 9, the Red Army attacked the Japanese troops stationed in northern China. Washington itself had long asked for Soviet intervention, but when that intervention finally came, Truman and his advisors were far from ecstatic about the fact that Stalin had kept his word. If Japan’s rulers did not respond immediately to the bombing of Hiroshima with an unconditional capitulation, it may have been because they could not ascertain immediately that only one plane and one bomb had done so much damage. (Many conventional bombing raids had produced equally catastrophic results; an attack by thousands of bombers on the Japanese capital on March 9-10, 1945, for example, had actually caused more casualties than the bombing of Hiroshima.) In any event, it took some time before an unconditional capitulation was forthcoming, and on account of this delay the USSR did get involved in the war against Japan after all. This made Washington extremely impatient: the day after the Soviet declaration of war, on August 9, 1945, a second bomb was dropped, this time on the city of Nagasaki. A former American army chaplain later stated: “I am of the opinion that this was one of the reasons why a second bomb was dropped: because there was a rush. They wanted to get the Japanese to capitulate before the Russians showed up.”[11] (The chaplain may or may not have been aware that among the 75,000 human beings who were “instantaneously incinerated, carbonized and evaporated” in Nagasaki were many Japanese Catholics as well an unknown number of inmates of a camp for allied POWs, whose presence had been reported to the air command, to no avail.)[12] It took another five days, that is, until August 14, before the Japanese could bring themselves to capitulate. In the meantime the Red Army was able to make considerable progress, to the great chagrin of Truman and his advisors.

And so the Americans were stuck with a Soviet partner in the Far East after all. Or were they? Truman made sure that they were not, ignoring the precedents set earlier with respect to cooperation among the Big Three in Europe. Already on August 15, 1945, Washington rejected Stalin’s request for a Soviet occupation zone in the defeated land of the rising sun. And when on September 2, 1945, General MacArthur officially accepted the Japanese surrender on the American battleship Missouri in the Bay of Tokyo, representatives of the Soviet Union – and of other allies in the Far East, such as Great Britain, France, Australia, and the Netherlands – were allowed to be present only as insignificant extras, as spectators. Unlike Germany, Japan was not carved up into occupation zones. America’s defeated rival was to be occupied by the Americans only, and as American “viceroy” in Tokyo, General MacArthur would ensure that, regardless of contributions made to the common victory, no other power had a say in the affairs of postwar Japan.

Sixty-five years ago, Truman did not have to use the atomic bomb in order to force Japan to its knees, but he had reasons to want to use the bomb. The atom bomb enabled the Americans to force Tokyo to surrender unconditionally, to keep the Soviets out of the Far East and – last but not least – to force Washington’s will on the Kremlin in Europe also. Hiroshima and Nagasaki were obliterated for these reasons, and many American historians realize this only too well; Sean Dennis Cashman, for example, writes:

With the passing of time, many historians have concluded that the bomb was used as much for political reasons…Vannevar Bush [the head of the American center for scientific research] stated that the bomb “was also delivered on time, so that there was no necessity for any concessions to Russia at the end of the war”. Secretary of State James F. Byrnes [Truman’s Secretary of State] never denied a statement attributed to him that the bomb had been used to demonstrate American power to the Soviet Union in order to make it more manageable in Europe.[13]

Truman himself, however, hypocritically declared at the time that the purpose of the two nuclear bombardments had been “to bring the boys home,” that is, to quickly finish the war without any further major loss of life on the American side. This explanation was uncritically broadcast in the American media and it developed into a myth eagerly propagated by the majority of historians and media in the USA and throughout the “Western” world. That myth, which, incidentally, also serves to justify potential future nuclear strikes on targets such as Iran and North Korea, is still very much alive – just check your mainstream newspaper on August 6 and 9!

“Imagine homelessness addressed by a vigorous back-to-the-land movement, with training and housing and employment all located in ahupuaa that were naturally designed for growing taro and harvesting fish.”

I don’t have to imagine this part, our houseless actually are vigorously aloha aina, and everytime a bulldozer and enforcement show up all the growing of taro and fishing ‘holoholo way just as our ancestors did 2,000 years ago are destroyed in a few hours.

By our assimulated Na Kanaka no less.

I do have documentation of this houseless phenomenon and I did have pictures and shared this at our latest “LA HO`IHO`I EA – HAWAIIAN SOVEREIGNTY RESTORATION DAY”

Will try to do better next time and take it out of the shoe box.

“This is why we must end the military occupation of Hawaii, not just because military use poisons our lands and waters, but also because the mission of the armed forces so fundamentally opposes our values of inclusion and aloha aina. It defends a very particular definition of a people, and we Kanaka Maoli are focused on a much larger society than the American nation. Indeed, we have nurtured and will continue to uphold a community that is larger than humanity itself.”

This statement is so profound. After standing in a meeting two nights ago and last night, I just don’t want to continue to be a part of so much ignorance. Call it bending or stooping, I have no idea because this just goes against my sense of who I am in a large community that have a large population of Na Kanaka.

The first night was about focusing on the community and play the ‘blame game’ for the fire in Makua. The second night was about ‘social promotion’ in Nanakuli High School and be sure that they don’t go on to a four year college or better still enter Leeward community college and drop out. Super cover up for the next 5 years of social promotion..good CYA Kelii.

One light Maile Elementary did meet AYP overall. Not sure if special ed and Ell was left out of the testing, I couldn’t ask the questions because the night was a slam bang thankyou man kinda thing. Regardless, this elementary AYP is an indicator that social promotion bought time about five years. 2014-15 Seniors will have test out in order to graduate, instead of social promotion. The problem is– should seniors opt for certificates instead of a diploma they cannot go into the unions., or other opportunities with a certificate.

So why the concern. We have a huge population of Na Kanaka, most of the scholarships are reserved for the private school Na Kanaka, after that it is reserved for the more aggressive or competitive Public School System. This problem is not new, we Na Kanaka on homestead realized our problem within the larger community and tried to remedy this problem in the early 70s–thus OHA.

I don’t have to go in detail on this site as to what is OHA.

Oh well lets move on and try again, again and again. stop the bombing and stop the Akaka Bill Much love and aloha

hi Kaohi, Jon Osorio (a friend of family members),

thanks for posting this……..but I must say that the educational system, namely the University of Hawaii at Manoa’s professors over time have been at fault for promoting, maintaining the lies, the frauds, deceit, propaganda and need to STOP IT, QUIT IT, and start harping the NEW INFORMATION discovered through intense research……..

events held at the schools pertaining to the white’s version of history is a crime in itself…………………………………to disregard the facts that all that is now happening is a direct result of the REVISITING of HISTORICAL EVENTS affecting our Hawaiian people, the facts that Royal Families exist is not to be disregarded and seen as a political issue…………the failure to call a snake a snake, a pirate a pirate, a white-collar criminal a white collar criminal, etc. does not promote TRUTH of many who thirst for knowledge, want to know what happened……..not just a parrotted White Man history of the account of documented INJUSTICES………….the crimes of the U.S. against land owners who are PEOPLE OF COLOR, the criminal assumption/Piracy(ies) of neutral, non-violent, friendly peoples who did no wrong is proof of the TERROR(ists) moves against our ancient people.. …..and which means many nations NEED to keep a close eye on the U.S., and criminal wrongdoers in the Hawaiian Islands………….even today……………

Where are the Oliver Lee’s, et. als. of the past, the true rebel rousers……they are NOT in the University of Hawaii System………..but are transplanted groupies affiliated with OHA/Office of Hawaiian Affairs, etc. getting well paid off of the entity /PIRATE entity State of Hawaii………..

Jonathan Osorio’s failure to speak about/recognize that TRUE LAND OWNERS are here just continues the haole mentality of the Pirates, racketeers ……………..and by disregarding WHAT IS IS shows that he’s just one of the many paid off Hawaiians doing a fine song and dance routine to appease his feeders and looking good to his doe eyed, sheep that he tends to, a mindless, innocent, unquestioning kind in the game of education, equivocal to those mindless internet games meant to entertain, to enjoy, and to control in a subtle way…………

Best everyone look at the FACTS, the History revisited and ALL, the Truth, the Political Leaders and their descendants, the Crimes of the past affecting our kanaka maoli today, etc.

Let us go beyond the beautiful songs, and get down to the brass tacks (military talk) and get to the facts!

aloha.

p.s. am not only talking about Jon Osorio but my own cousin Kelii Gora and Lilikala Kaumeelehiwa, et. als. too.

“The Hawaiian sovereignty movement has also been about challenging our assumptions regarding the ways we live with one another by continually asserting a culture of sharing and interdependency with all of the life around us. This is why we must end the military occupation of Hawaii, not just because military use poisons our lands and waters, but also because the mission of the armed forces so fundamentally opposes our values of inclusion and aloha aina. It defends a very particular definition of a people, and we Kanaka Maoli are focused on a much larger society than the American nation. Indeed, we have nurtured and will continue to uphold a community that is larger than humanity itself.”

The Hawaiian sovereignty movement has been about people who know that our ancestors and our people have been in bad shape since the underhanded, premeditation moves by bankrupt Americans who haven’t had an honest track record in dealing with all nations aside from their masters: England/ Great Britain, Morgan Bankers, International bankers, including the Bank of England.

We are people with documented genocide issues shared to many around the World…….We are a recognized friendly nation with BIG BULLY /U.S. pirating our assets, lands, resources, etc.

Noone likes Pirates, excepting Hollywood diversions of promoting the movies, PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN with Johnny Dep and Friends……………the military are the arms of the PIRATES OF THE PACIFIC AND THE WORLD! ……rape, plunder, kill, destroy, genocide, leaving nothing but crap wherever they go……everywhere in the world!………..and in the seas…….pouring nuclear wastes everywhere, etc…………….who needs it?…………..certainly not a neutral nation area………Jon Osorio is right on to add that we don’t need the military here………..

and, it is possible to bring in other nations to protect our kanaka maoli and others here, because the TOXIC based “colony of the Crown” or the U.S. is NOT taking care of the health, safety, lives of even their own people here in sunny, unfriendly, belligerent occupation, unwelcomed military who have been served eviction notices and to move out December 2010.

It dawned on me why, I posted it. I thought it was Street Beat as opposed to Civil Beat. Street Beat is a newsletter for the housless. I’m not sure where that is today which is why I went directly to the site while it was on The Don Chapman’s show.

I was always interested in journalism while attending UH Manoa. but, I also did not want to slant towards America’s so I did not pay too much attention to that department.

But, I think that Maoliworld superceeds all journalist prints. Which was never my intent, I just wanted to communicate with us guys.

Maoliworld is huge everyone around the world are aware of this site, including the white house in DC.

I’m still trying to learn how to navigate between posting a discussion and making sure it is grammatically correct and spelled correctly too. I don’t have a lot of time to edit so I just post!

the good news is that I found my glasses!

hi Kaohi!

“the good news is that I found my glasses!” ……….lol……..

fortunately can still go without my glasses during the day………..then at night it’s a different story……
as we get older, the rods and cones become depleted……..Depleted ….Uranium too..

ah yes, the topic everyone or MANY appears to move away from!

the educators………..according to SUDDEN RUSH are “deeper than the crater”………..NOT So when it comes to the educators from the University of Hawaii at Manoa, et. als. who FAIL to properly school their students about

DEPLETED URANIUM/DU use in our Hawaiian Islands…………

How can our people, and everyone here in the Islands possibly respect them……………..they’re no different from prostitutes who take monies from their clientele/the entity State of Hawaii, etc. WHERE ARE THEIR CONSCIENCE, THEIR MINDS, THEIR VALUES…………..sure, they can say they’re under duress, stress, coercion, and usurpation………………..but, they do need to come out with the truth……..

aloha, hope you have a good day!

All educator’s need to teach their students about DEPLETED URANIUM……….and that’s the bottom line, the wicked belligerent occupier, and all the pirates that live amongst us.

Amelia,

I had a wonderful time yesterday with Pono, after I picked him up from Palolo, we went to Waiamanalo to the Gabby Pahinui concert on the beach.

We went a bit late because we are both energy low. It was perfect! I was able to raise a lot of how come and why things are.

I also shared with Pono where I grew up, my brother Marshal and his memorial at Kaiona beach park. Our back street, my front yard which is the beach and many other things along the way. I can compare Waimanalo and Waianae with same behaviors it’s just that Waianae has it’s differences–but also too lots of similarities.

We got home really late, and I was amazed how we were able to pull this event off and enjoy ourselves too. He should be putting up somethings real soon.

hi Kaohi,

I too had a wonderful time yesterday at the beach with my family(ies)……

even gave a plate of food to a homeless woman who refused to take the meat due to her health issues, but didn’t want to take it to her other friends…………she appeared scholarly and was into the details of what’s good for you and etc……………there was another person there who was obviously a schizo and kept taking showers that lasted 15+ minutes …perhaps to rinse off every flap, fold, and crevice on his 400+ pound obese body………….

other than that……….
we had a mah…velous time…………

enjoyable indeed………….

Amelia,
You are correct thank you for reposting some of the comments. The universities are semester based on a syllabus that narrows a students veiw point to one thing. The nature of man turns into muck when a student swirls around in their introduction and not really take their research to the actural records and field search inquiry. And than there is that defense before the class/profs and it all turns into an objective carving out the subjective–student centered.

Point–it’s not real.

But we can use it to connect to the community. What most UH Manoa Ivory Tower cannot take is the fact that they know nothing about the real world.

I learned this lesson the hardway. I desired my father so much because I realized that he was far more smart than all the profs at the universit. That was scary!

I began to look around even more…I see the profound intelligence of 2,000 years still embedded in the minds of houseless, elderly, and their handicrafts.

The inquiry protocol helps to further my awareness, however, one must communciate in the global market for validation. Which is what Maoli world does–it opens the ‘talk’ on the equal or common ground it doesn’t matter how many degrees one has. Spookey!

Which was being discussed with Civil Beat at the table. They thought they had the corner of the law and call their site or show god-on-high. What they realized is that they are loosing their customer readers market with the internet and feel injust. So sad…

It would be nice if we had more researchers on the forum. One that can get past three paragraphs.

This is educational in process, so I have no hold backs as far as discussing in the future anything that is on Clear Beat I just have to paraphrase or quote. But we have so much work ahead, so maybe not.

Thanks

hi Kaohi,

our friend Jack DeFeo just mailed me this:

Subject: Valedictorian Speaks Out Against Schooling in Graduation Speech

http://www.sott.net/articles/show/212383-Valedictorian-Speaks-Out-A&#8230;

Best of the Web
Graduation ceremony

© The Daily Mail
The 2010 Graduating Class of Coxsackie-Athens High School.

Comment: The following speech was delivered by top of the class student Erica Goldson during the graduation ceremony at Coxsackie-Athens High School on June 25, 2010

Here I stand

There is a story of a young, but earnest Zen student who approached his teacher, and asked the Master, “If I work very hard and diligently, how long will it take for me to find Zen? The Master thought about this, then replied, “Ten years . .” The student then said, “But what if I work very, very hard and really apply myself to learn fast — How long then?” Replied the Master, “Well, twenty years.” “But, if I really, really work at it, how long then?” asked the student. “Thirty years,” replied the Master. “But, I do not understand,” said the disappointed student. “At each time that I say I will work harder, you say it will take me longer. Why do you say that?” Replied the Master, “When you have one eye on the goal, you only have one eye on the path.”

This is the dilemma I’ve faced within the American education system. We are so focused on a goal, whether it be passing a test, or graduating as first in the class. However, in this way, we do not really learn. We do whatever it takes to achieve our original objective.

Some of you may be thinking, “Well, if you pass a test, or become valedictorian, didn’t you learn something? Well, yes, you learned something, but not all that you could have. Perhaps, you only learned how to memorize names, places, and dates to later on forget in order to clear your mind for the next test. School is not all that it can be. Right now, it is a place for most people to determine that their goal is to get out as soon as possible.

I am now accomplishing that goal. I am graduating. I should look at this as a positive experience, especially being at the top of my class. However, in retrospect, I cannot say that I am any more intelligent than my peers. I can attest that I am only the best at doing what I am told and working the system. Yet, here I stand, and I am supposed to be proud that I have completed this period of indoctrination. I will leave in the fall to go on to the next phase expected of me, in order to receive a paper document that certifies that I am capable of work. But I contest that I am a human being, a thinker, an adventurer – not a worker. A worker is someone who is trapped within repetition – a slave of the system set up before him. But now, I have successfully shown that I was the best slave. I did what I was told to the extreme. While others sat in class and doodled to later become great artists, I sat in class to take notes and become a great test-taker. While others would come to class without their homework done because they were reading about an interest of theirs, I never missed an assignment. While others were creating music and writing lyrics, I decided to do extra credit, even though I never needed it. So, I wonder, why did I even want this position? Sure, I earned it, but what will come of it? When I leave educational institutionalism, will I be successful or forever lost? I have no clue about what I want to do with my life; I have no interests because I saw every subject of study as work, and I excelled at every subject just for the purpose of excelling, not learning. And quite frankly, now I’m scared.

John Taylor Gatto, a retired school teacher and activist critical of compulsory schooling, asserts, “We could encourage the best qualities of youthfulness – curiosity, adventure, resilience, the capacity for surprising insight simply by being more flexible about time, texts, and tests, by introducing kids into truly competent adults, and by giving each student what autonomy he or she needs in order to take a risk every now and then. But we don’t do that.” Between these cinderblock walls, we are all expected to be the same. We are trained to ace every standardized test, and those who deviate and see light through a different lens are worthless to the scheme of public education, and therefore viewed with contempt.

H. L. Mencken wrote in The American Mercury for April 1924 that the aim of public education is not “to fill the young of the species with knowledge and awaken their intelligence. … Nothing could be further from the truth. The aim … is simply to reduce as many individuals as possible to the same safe level, to breed and train a standardized citizenry, to put down dissent and originality. That is its aim in the United States.”

Comment: The full passage reads: “The aim of public education is not to spread enlightenment at all; it is simply to reduce as many individuals as possible to the same safe level, to breed and train a standardized citizenry, to down dissent and originality. That is its aim in the United States, whatever pretensions of politicians, pedagogues other such mountebanks, and that is its aim everywhere else.”

To illustrate this idea, doesn’t it perturb you to learn about the idea of “critical thinking.” Is there really such a thing as “uncritically thinking?” To think is to process information in order to form an opinion. But if we are not critical when processing this information, are we really thinking? Or are we mindlessly accepting other opinions as truth?

This was happening to me, and if it wasn’t for the rare occurrence of an avant-garde tenth grade English teacher, Donna Bryan, who allowed me to open my mind and ask questions before accepting textbook doctrine, I would have been doomed. I am now enlightened, but my mind still feels disabled. I must retrain myself and constantly remember how insane this ostensibly sane place really is.

And now here I am in a world guided by fear, a world suppressing the uniqueness that lies inside each of us, a world where we can either acquiesce to the inhuman nonsense of corporatism and materialism or insist on change. We are not enlivened by an educational system that clandestinely sets us up for jobs that could be automated, for work that need not be done, for enslavement without fervency for meaningful achievement. We have no choices in life when money is our motivational force. Our motivational force ought to be passion, but this is lost from the moment we step into a system that trains us, rather than inspires us.

We are more than robotic bookshelves, conditioned to blurt out facts we were taught in school. We are all very special, every human on this planet is so special, so aren’t we all deserving of something better, of using our minds for innovation, rather than memorization, for creativity, rather than futile activity, for rumination rather than stagnation? We are not here to get a degree, to then get a job, so we can consume industry-approved placation after placation. There is more, and more still.

The saddest part is that the majority of students don’t have the opportunity to reflect as I did. The majority of students are put through the same brainwashing techniques in order to create a complacent labor force working in the interests of large corporations and secretive government, and worst of all, they are completely unaware of it. I will never be able to turn back these 18 years. I can’t run away to another country with an education system meant to enlighten rather than condition. This part of my life is over, and I want to make sure that no other child will have his or her potential suppressed by powers meant to exploit and control. We are human beings. We are thinkers, dreamers, explorers, artists, writers, engineers. We are anything we want to be – but only if we have an educational system that supports us rather than holds us down. A tree can grow, but only if its roots are given a healthy foundation.

For those of you out there that must continue to sit in desks and yield to the authoritarian ideologies of instructors, do not be disheartened. You still have the opportunity to stand up, ask questions, be critical, and create your own perspective. Demand a setting that will provide you with intellectual capabilities that allow you to expand your mind instead of directing it. Demand that you be interested in class. Demand that the excuse, “You have to learn this for the test” is not good enough for you. Education is an excellent tool, if used properly, but focus more on learning rather than getting good grades.

For those of you that work within the system that I am condemning, I do not mean to insult; I intend to motivate. You have the power to change the incompetencies of this system. I know that you did not become a teacher or administrator to see your students bored. You cannot accept the authority of the governing bodies that tell you what to teach, how to teach it, and that you will be punished if you do not comply. Our potential is at stake.

For those of you that are now leaving this establishment, I say, do not forget what went on in these classrooms. Do not abandon those that come after you. We are the new future and we are not going to let tradition stand. We will break down the walls of corruption to let a garden of knowledge grow throughout America. Once educated properly, we will have the power to do anything, and best of all, we will only use that power for good, for we will be cultivated and wise. We will not accept anything at face value. We will ask questions, and we will demand truth.

So, here I stand. I am not standing here as valedictorian by myself. I was molded by my environment, by all of my peers who are sitting here watching me. I couldn’t have accomplished this without all of you. It was all of you who truly made me the person I am today. It was all of you who were my competition, yet my backbone. In that way, we are all valedictorians.

I am now supposed to say farewell to this institution, those who maintain it, and those who stand with me and behind me, but I hope this farewell is more of a “see you later” when we are all working together to rear a pedagogic movement. But first, let’s go get those pieces of paper that tell us that we’re smart enough to do so!

The FAILURES of our own Kanaka Maoli and the Ramifications of Some

by Amelia Gora (2010)

The professors have FAILED in properly educating our people…………….what will their ramifications be? Only God knows and God is Not the Pope, Not the U.S., etc.

Some of the kanaka maoli and friends have been educating our people in part, but have failed to properly perform duties, work intended for many…..

Keanu Sai for example has taken tons of money from many kanaka maoli and appears to be performing moves to seek resolve………………many are still watching and waiting to get repaid.

Note: Remember PERFECT TITLE Co.? Thousands, if not hundreds of thousands were taken by the Company………to date, no resolve.

Mahealani Ventura Oliver……and family has also taken tons of money from many kanaka maoli…… questions remain…………however, did find out her hubby ended up in the hospital totally beaten…. by who? only they know…………what of the thousands, hundreds of thousands taken by her and friends?…………..interesting.

Alfred Spinney who is one of the cousins of Mahealani Ventura Oliver and Mahealani Asing (she gets people to sign off their interest and sign over to her and she claims she is doing something also….she continued to do what her cousin Mahealani did with the BONDS Program……..did you know the BONDS Program is based on monies of the Hawaiian Kingdom……….and even the Prisoners get released providing they sign interest over to the entity State of Hawaii) who also has taken thousands upon thousands of dollars………….and now he’s on the “lamb”………….no e-mails, removes phone, left his home, etc.

Kai, Kaleo, et. als………do you know where he is………..please ask him to get in contact with the folks he’s claiming to help because I’ve heard through the grapevines that there are ramifications awaiting him………………..

ramifications may include Police Reports, etc.

Alfred Spinney’s background

Descends from Hanawahine family………….a family known to be on Bishop Estates payroll…yes, the Kamehameha Schools Bishop Estates payroll…………to date, have not found that family lines connection to the Kamehameha families…..other people on the Hanawahine line is the Mehau family – research yet to be verified but info from a protected informant…..The Mehau family formerly were the “security” (in more ways than one) of the Kamehameha Schools Bishop Estates.

Last record of Spinney…………had four (4) meetings with the Trustees……………since then, he’s been on the “lamb” from those he claimed to represent, etc.

He learned Hawaiian Laws from an undisclosed friend(s), moved with Refverend Keaanaaina (who calls himself “King” —-have not seen his connection to Kamehameha to date, but have seen his connection to Kamehameha II’s last wife Pale/Pali (w) )

His mother was a good person…………I did make referrals thinking he would follow through…..I can offer a good publicity campaign over the news on the web IOLANI – The Royal Hawk……..

Letting everyone know that many deal with unsavory types, including the pirate entity State of Hawaii……..

Aloha

p.s. All kanaka maoli are welcomed to contact me about the Professors, teachers, kanaka maoli, etc. and I’ll post anonymous reports on the web too…. hawaiianhistory@yahoo.com

Amelia,
That piece that Jack sent you on critical thinking, well that is so awesome, however, I too sell out for the corrupt system. Why? I want my children and other people’s children to have that paycheck too! To pay for their bills and feed my grandchildren.

I can walk the talk, however do I let my children walk my path on homeless and Na Kanaka activisim–no!

We have in our own Maoliworld community people that would sell-out their ancestors at a drop of a penny. But, that is my opinion–I call that the need to paranthesees type. I have no walls just infinity….and when I encounter the type of Na Kanaka that like to put walls around me for their Na Kanaka use..I make haste.

It is a lonely world when I slice their friendship, but eventually they come around to my way of thinking.

Pono is that creative person, so I try to surround him with people that give him artistic expression. Those that don’t get the hatchet quickly. Mana suckers!!!!

Olelo have gone a long way to preserve the military campaign among the bottom feeders and the educational systems. It’s interesting how this is going—it’s also easier to confront each day cause it’s right there the minute we leave our home at the tip of our fingers.

Maukua built a fire lane Mauka to Makai and forgot to run one along the fence line, but that was typically designed to set control fires after training. Firefighters in this case are the bottom feeders in the food chain and indispensiable–worthless. It’s a sad thing. Why the fire could not be put out immediately was because too much water would flow to the ocean.

Firelanes were built with toixic contaminates from military bases. The reason for removal is because the Pentagon’s sustainable plus plan for the 21st century was to maintain a level of safe environment for their military families. The question is ‘what about those of us that are in the path of this illegal transfer of contaminated soil through our Waianae Community? Don’t we count in the sustainable plus plans?

Although the phrosphates were burn’t in the control burn the DU is still existing and blowing in the wind just waiting for a host to mastisize cancer.

Then the question begs to who is going to take care of these cancer dying humans? Family? Home care? Medical care? Military? Maybe being the first abortion State in their US system we can have a right to life to sustain the Military in Hawaii. Disgusting!!! But, whose to stop this autrocities–Christians?

Not trusting in God, but I send my children to worship in the house of Christians –yup I’m that hyprocrite too.

So, we get up in the morning and think of ways to research, think the material, take it to the home grown media artistically and express our critical thinking each day. And piss off the people that are using the military to further their existence. What an exciting life!

I am teaching in a school that had students at guardrails. And use their thinking skills to develop ‘passion’ for the housless. In truth, we educators know that we have to teach in such a way that the students sitting before are the future poverty in Hawaii. Which brings to mind why Waianae schools are so violent. The 80% free lunch tells us that Waianae future will be poverty stricken. So this school that I am at have many different paths out of poverty because the teachers and community turned their educational school around on it’s head with–we care about our children. Waianae when I came did no such thing and intend to keep the status quo of nothingness.

Kamehameha school contributed a lot to this nothingness. Koa and Pat Holems (Kam) four years ago ‘carved out’ night school from Nanakuli to preserve power in Nanakuli High School. Their lame excuse is because the students needed counseling–your right! Kam only do process of elimination to the brink of causing suicide among our Na Kanaka teens.

Which non profit groups make millions of dollars off this cash crop–teen suicide in Waianae.

So, to end this yada yada we move on each day on Maoliworld with mainstream media. Civil Beat made that very clear that they suck and we are awesome. We just have to convince our Na Kanaka that they should write on this forum without any entrapments to process eliminate our voices because certain ‘hackers’ can’t handle their own simplistic stupidity.

I listened in the dark to a mother who had children in the school that I am teaching at tell me how she had to leave behind all the childrens things, their clothes, toys, behind because they couldn’t pack it on their little car at guardrails the eve before the eviction.

I know Dwight (spirit world) caused this to happen so that we can have a path into the future. I know that he killed himself for good reasons. But, how far have we come only to have such solutions be real and trying in our daily lives. This is bizzare, but you move on down the path regardless.

Pono gave me the quality time that I had asked for while we sat in Jim Albertini kitchen, just before we went nite nite. I’m still basking in the glow of Uncle Gabby’s concert in Waimanalo. How we pulled this one off was amazing. Thanks to our family in the spirit world my brother, uncle Gabby, my granduncle Edward Niaupio–we practiced Native Tenants rights and accessed–holoholo style.

hi Kaohi,

In Sociology class, I introduced the theory/concept that everyone operates on basically three (3) levels:

basic – prejudices, dog eat dog, etc.
educated – understanding of much
altruistic – equality amongst fellow man, belief in God, etc.

right after class, a white boy/man approached me and said that he wasn’t prejudiced….he had a group with him at the time who listened in…………..

and i told him that everyone operates on All three (3) levels……….”.it just depends on who you’re with at the time”………….depends on your friends, family, whose around…..

notice on this post that you’re operating on levels 2 and 3………..

“So, we get up in the morning and think of ways to research, think the material, take it to the home grown media artistically and express our critical thinking each day. And piss off the people that are using the military to further their existence. What an exciting life!”…………ouch…….lol…..

Queen Liliuokalani’s issues remain unresolved…………went thru her files yesterday and have to put them into place………even the wicked parts ….the “basic” level………..with prejudices calling her “the dark skin” and how “we white” folk, etc…………….think we’re pissing off a lot of people, indeed, because we are Queen Liliuokalani’s families now looking AT ALL THE ISSUES which affects ALL LANDS including Makua, and have many rushing to protect their criminal works……military at the Archives….say what?… etc. etc.

You’re out there and thank you for that…………..some of our families help FEED the homeless regularly in town……..because we’re mostly “townies”, sometimes “country bumpkins” or wanna be “country bumpkins”….lol.

Have a good day………………i operate on three (3) levels everyday!

aloha.

“Everyday…………….come what may………….”

Aloha Amelia,

I had a long talk with Tane about being on this forum. He wants more participation on this forum which is good. However, writing each day plus posting information that may be too subjective to some thinkers because of their academic background. Secondly, he suggested that I post on the blog intruth, I don’t cause I don’t have time for me and me. My focus is on public forums because that is where we can meet the day to day challenges of our every living which is mostly genocidal here in Waianae.

I told him that I’ve been along time activist and because the daily routine was always filled with taking care of the Na Kupuna and picking people up at the airport for the protest and in those days there were many. I am talking about the 70s, so for some stupid heads, I earned the judgment of having to wear the scarlet letter on my chest because of the night time business. We were up late at night sleeping in parked cars, at the Iolani palace..just anywhere after we wrote our protest signs. Piggy is still lurking just as was done 200 years ago.

And in the minds of the lazy asses, I wear the letter A on my breast in public forums.

To maintain our housless in the 70s was difficult, but unlike today it is unbelievably inhumane. People died than but not like today. It’s routine.

I have no regrets people that are true to their ancestors and their souls–they know me and we do connect. Ancestors that sold out the year after the Queen died in 1918 their siblings are following their path.

The ADB in 2011 will be difficult and this time I am not going to the front and lead. We need new leaders–that can stand up to the ‘enforcements’ on the frontline not towing the line in back of the truck. Hiding behind a truck being driven by the RCP was not a smart idea. In fact, it was dangerous.

Na Kanaka need to behave like host not ghost!

Note I will delet this when I know you have read this so that pictures can be shared

I hope that Ballo comes to Hawaii and join the resistence again in 2011. He was very inspirational for the natives that came from foreign countries and instrumental in continuing the argument with the bankers thereafter on the international arena.

hi Kaohi,

The bankers are already running into troubles…………….did you know that the Land Court System was put in place because the bankers wanted security to know that the lands were free and clear ? There are only a handful of States who continue the corrupt system, including the entity State of Hawaii…….

Mortgages are paid based on the infrastructure and house on land supposedly in fee simple.

That does not apply in our Hawaiian Islands because of the Monarchy government, allodial titles.

Seen from a Monarchy government, Royal families perspective, the infrastructure, house is an issue of tresspassing, belligerent occupation when the land still remains truly owned by our kanaka maoli, be it the Royal families or konohiki or rights of native tenants……..

Some of our kanaka maoli were told to tell the bank to remove their structure, and they were allowed to stay on our families properties, given documents with rights to malama our aina, build their own house there.

What would happen if all of our kanaka maoli did that? wouldn’t that be welcome news to everyone here?

The bankers are supported by the title companies who claim to do an accurate research for insurance purposes………….so, therefore, ALL PEOPLE in Hawaii can sue the title companies, the banks, the entity State of Hawaii to get back their funds, etc.

The Morgan bankers were the ones who did the major crimes in the past, being the investors for both England, and the U.S…………both were bankrupt as the result of the American Civil War.

It was not until 1934 that the U.S. paid off their loans for the American Civil War……1865 thru 1934… which means 79 YEARS LATER!!!

So, if stolen goods/monies of the Hawaiian Kingdom is documented……including the gold bullion, gold coins, income, assets…………….pray tell, how much does that amount to?……….the Morgan bankers are the ones, documented with U.S. and England at its mercy……….doesn’t that mean that the bankers are OWING to the Hawaiian Kingdom, and other neutral, Monarchy, governments PLUNDERED UPON……….

aren’t the bankers really in DEBT as well? everyone should really think about it……….

Sharron Angle Claims United Nations Is Unconstitutional

In a recent interview with a local TV station, Nevada Republican Senate candidate Sharron Angle claimed that it is unconstitutional for the United States to remain in the United Nations:

ANGLE: The United Nations resides on our soil and costs us money. We are – I don’t see any place in the Constitution — in those eight priorities — about the United Nations. So when we start talking about cutting programs, 5-percent per year, I think the United Nations fits into that category, yes.

Watch it:

Angle might want to actually read the Constitution before she starts talking about what’s in it. Article II of the Constitution provides that the president “shall have power, by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, to make treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur.” That is why the United States may belong to treaty organizations such as the UN. President Truman entered into the treaty which creates the UN, and the Senate ratified that treaty.

Although Angle’s assault on the constitutionality of the UN appears to be her own unique delusion, she is hardly alone among Republicans in asserting crankish theories of the Constitution. Indeed, the GOP is increasingly captured by radicals who think that Medicare, Social Security, the Affordable Care Act, the minimum wage, the federal ban on whites only lunch counters and federal laws regulating child labor are all unconstitutional, or that the Constitution’s most basic protections should be repealed.
Update Yesterday, Angle ran an ad stating, “I’d like to save Social Security by locking the lock box, putting the money back into the Trust Fund so government can no longer raid our retirement.” Today, she reverted to her position that Social Security needs to be privatized, citing as evidence the revamping of Chile’s pension system by former dictator Augusto Pinochet.

Subject: Valedictorian Speaks Out Against Schooling in Graduation Speech

http://www.sott.net/articles/show/212383-Valedictorian-Speaks-Out-A&#8230;

Best of the Web
Graduation ceremony

© The Daily Mail
The 2010 Graduating Class of Coxsackie-Athens High School.

Comment: The following speech was delivered by top of the class student Erica Goldson during the graduation ceremony at Coxsackie-Athens High School on June 25, 2010

Here I stand

There is a story of a young, but earnest Zen student who approached his teacher, and asked the Master, “If I work very hard and diligently, how long will it take for me to find Zen? The Master thought about this, then replied, “Ten years . .” The student then said, “But what if I work very, very hard and really apply myself to learn fast — How long then?” Replied the Master, “Well, twenty years.” “But, if I really, really work at it, how long then?” asked the student. “Thirty years,” replied the Master. “But, I do not understand,” said the disappointed student. “At each time that I say I will work harder, you say it will take me longer. Why do you say that?” Replied the Master, “When you have one eye on the goal, you only have one eye on the path.”

This is the dilemma I’ve faced within the American education system. We are so focused on a goal, whether it be passing a test, or graduating as first in the class. However, in this way, we do not really learn. We do whatever it takes to achieve our original objective.

Some of you may be thinking, “Well, if you pass a test, or become valedictorian, didn’t you learn something? Well, yes, you learned something, but not all that you could have. Perhaps, you only learned how to memorize names, places, and dates to later on forget in order to clear your mind for the next test. School is not all that it can be. Right now, it is a place for most people to determine that their goal is to get out as soon as possible.

I am now accomplishing that goal. I am graduating. I should look at this as a positive experience, especially being at the top of my class. However, in retrospect, I cannot say that I am any more intelligent than my peers. I can attest that I am only the best at doing what I am told and working the system. Yet, here I stand, and I am supposed to be proud that I have completed this period of indoctrination. I will leave in the fall to go on to the next phase expected of me, in order to receive a paper document that certifies that I am capable of work. But I contest that I am a human being, a thinker, an adventurer – not a worker. A worker is someone who is trapped within repetition – a slave of the system set up before him. But now, I have successfully shown that I was the best slave. I did what I was told to the extreme. While others sat in class and doodled to later become great artists, I sat in class to take notes and become a great test-taker. While others would come to class without their homework done because they were reading about an interest of theirs, I never missed an assignment. While others were creating music and writing lyrics, I decided to do extra credit, even though I never needed it. So, I wonder, why did I even want this position? Sure, I earned it, but what will come of it? When I leave educational institutionalism, will I be successful or forever lost? I have no clue about what I want to do with my life; I have no interests because I saw every subject of study as work, and I excelled at every subject just for the purpose of excelling, not learning. And quite frankly, now I’m scared.

John Taylor Gatto, a retired school teacher and activist critical of compulsory schooling, asserts, “We could encourage the best qualities of youthfulness – curiosity, adventure, resilience, the capacity for surprising insight simply by being more flexible about time, texts, and tests, by introducing kids into truly competent adults, and by giving each student what autonomy he or she needs in order to take a risk every now and then. But we don’t do that.” Between these cinderblock walls, we are all expected to be the same. We are trained to ace every standardized test, and those who deviate and see light through a different lens are worthless to the scheme of public education, and therefore viewed with contempt.

H. L. Mencken wrote in The American Mercury for April 1924 that the aim of public education is not “to fill the young of the species with knowledge and awaken their intelligence. … Nothing could be further from the truth. The aim … is simply to reduce as many individuals as possible to the same safe level, to breed and train a standardized citizenry, to put down dissent and originality. That is its aim in the United States.”

Comment: The full passage reads: “The aim of public education is not to spread enlightenment at all; it is simply to reduce as many individuals as possible to the same safe level, to breed and train a standardized citizenry, to down dissent and originality. That is its aim in the United States, whatever pretensions of politicians, pedagogues other such mountebanks, and that is its aim everywhere else.”

To illustrate this idea, doesn’t it perturb you to learn about the idea of “critical thinking.” Is there really such a thing as “uncritically thinking?” To think is to process information in order to form an opinion. But if we are not critical when processing this information, are we really thinking? Or are we mindlessly accepting other opinions as truth?

This was happening to me, and if it wasn’t for the rare occurrence of an avant-garde tenth grade English teacher, Donna Bryan, who allowed me to open my mind and ask questions before accepting textbook doctrine, I would have been doomed. I am now enlightened, but my mind still feels disabled. I must retrain myself and constantly remember how insane this ostensibly sane place really is.

And now here I am in a world guided by fear, a world suppressing the uniqueness that lies inside each of us, a world where we can either acquiesce to the inhuman nonsense of corporatism and materialism or insist on change. We are not enlivened by an educational system that clandestinely sets us up for jobs that could be automated, for work that need not be done, for enslavement without fervency for meaningful achievement. We have no choices in life when money is our motivational force. Our motivational force ought to be passion, but this is lost from the moment we step into a system that trains us, rather than inspires us.

We are more than robotic bookshelves, conditioned to blurt out facts we were taught in school. We are all very special, every human on this planet is so special, so aren’t we all deserving of something better, of using our minds for innovation, rather than memorization, for creativity, rather than futile activity, for rumination rather than stagnation? We are not here to get a degree, to then get a job, so we can consume industry-approved placation after placation. There is more, and more still.

The saddest part is that the majority of students don’t have the opportunity to reflect as I did. The majority of students are put through the same brainwashing techniques in order to create a complacent labor force working in the interests of large corporations and secretive government, and worst of all, they are completely unaware of it. I will never be able to turn back these 18 years. I can’t run away to another country with an education system meant to enlighten rather than condition. This part of my life is over, and I want to make sure that no other child will have his or her potential suppressed by powers meant to exploit and control. We are human beings. We are thinkers, dreamers, explorers, artists, writers, engineers. We are anything we want to be – but only if we have an educational system that supports us rather than holds us down. A tree can grow, but only if its roots are given a healthy foundation.

For those of you out there that must continue to sit in desks and yield to the authoritarian ideologies of instructors, do not be disheartened. You still have the opportunity to stand up, ask questions, be critical, and create your own perspective. Demand a setting that will provide you with intellectual capabilities that allow you to expand your mind instead of directing it. Demand that you be interested in class. Demand that the excuse, “You have to learn this for the test” is not good enough for you. Education is an excellent tool, if used properly, but focus more on learning rather than getting good grades.

For those of you that work within the system that I am condemning, I do not mean to insult; I intend to motivate. You have the power to change the incompetencies of this system. I know that you did not become a teacher or administrator to see your students bored. You cannot accept the authority of the governing bodies that tell you what to teach, how to teach it, and that you will be punished if you do not comply. Our potential is at stake.

For those of you that are now leaving this establishment, I say, do not forget what went on in these classrooms. Do not abandon those that come after you. We are the new future and we are not going to let tradition stand. We will break down the walls of corruption to let a garden of knowledge grow throughout America. Once educated properly, we will have the power to do anything, and best of all, we will only use that power for good, for we will be cultivated and wise. We will not accept anything at face value. We will ask questions, and we will demand truth.

So, here I stand. I am not standing here as valedictorian by myself. I was molded by my environment, by all of my peers who are sitting here watching me. I couldn’t have accomplished this without all of you. It was all of you who truly made me the person I am today. It was all of you who were my competition, yet my backbone. In that way, we are all valedictorians.

I am now supposed to say farewell to this institution, those who maintain it, and those who stand with me and behind me, but I hope this farewell is more of a “see you later” when we are all working together to rear a pedagogic movement. But first, let’s go get those pieces of paper that tell us that we’re smart enough to do so!

The FAILURES of our own Kanaka Maoli and the Ramifications of Some

by Amelia Gora (2010)

The professors have FAILED in properly educating our people…………….what will their ramifications be? Only God knows and God is Not the Pope, Not the U.S., etc.

Some of the kanaka maoli and friends have been educating our people in part, but have failed to properly perform duties, work intended for many…..

Keanu Sai for example has taken tons of money from many kanaka maoli and appears to be performing moves to seek resolve………………many are still watching and waiting to get repaid.

Note: Remember PERFECT TITLE Co.? Thousands, if not hundreds of thousands were taken by the Company………to date, no resolve.

Mahealani Ventura Oliver……and family has also taken tons of money from many kanaka maoli…… questions remain…………however, did find out her hubby ended up in the hospital totally beaten…. by who? only they know…………what of the thousands, hundreds of thousands taken by her and friends?…………..interesting.

Alfred Spinney who is one of the cousins of Mahealani Ventura Oliver and Mahealani Asing (she gets people to sign off their interest and sign over to her and she claims she is doing something also….she continued to do what her cousin Mahealani did with the BONDS Program……..did you know the BONDS Program is based on monies of the Hawaiian Kingdom……….and even the Prisoners get released providing they sign interest over to the entity State of Hawaii) who also has taken thousands upon thousands of dollars………….and now he’s on the “lamb”………….no e-mails, removes phone, left his home, etc.

Kai, Kaleo, et. als………do you know where he is………..please ask him to get in contact with the folks he’s claiming to help because I’ve heard through the grapevines that there are ramifications awaiting him………………..

Alfred Spinney’s background

Descends from Hanawahine family………….a family known to be on Bishop Estates payroll…yes, the Kamehameha Schools Bishop Estates payroll…………to date, have not found that family lines connection to the Kamehameha families…..other people on the Hanawahine line is the Mehau family – research yet to be verified but info from a protected informant…..The Mehau family formerly were the “security” (in more ways than one) of the Kamehameha Schools Bishop Estates.

Last record of Spinney…………had four (4) meetings with the Trustees……………since then, he’s been on the “lamb” from those he claimed to represent, etc.

He learned Hawaiian Laws from an undisclosed friend(s), moved with Refverend Keaanaaina (who calls himself “King” —-have not seen his connection to Kamehameha to date, but have seen his connection to Kamehameha II’s last wife Pale/Pali (w) )

His mother was a good person…………I did make referrals thinking he would follow through…..I can offer a good publicity campaign over the news on the web IOLANI – The Royal Hawk……..

Letting everyone know that many deal with unsavory types, including the pirate entity State of Hawaii……..

Aloha

p.s. All kanaka maoli are welcomed to contact me about the Professors, teachers, kanaka maoli, etc. and I’ll post anonymous reports on the web too…. hawaiianhistory@yahoo.com

Amelia,
That piece that Jack sent you on critical thinking, well that is so awesome, however, I too sell out for the corrupt system. Why? I want my children and other people’s children to have that paycheck too! To pay for their bills and feed my grandchildren.

I can walk the talk, however do I let my children walk my path on homeless and Na Kanaka activisim–no!

We have in our own Maoliworld community people that would sell-out their ancestors at a drop of a penny. But, that is my opinion–I call that the need to paranthesees type. I have no walls just infinity….and when I encounter the type of Na Kanaka that like to put walls around me for their Na Kanaka use..I make haste.

It is a lonely world when I slice their friendship, but eventually they come around to my way of thinking.

Pono is that creative person, so I try to surround him with people that give him artistic expression. Those that don’t get the hatchet quickly. Mana suckers!!!!

Olelo have gone a long way to preserve the military campaign among the bottom feeders and the educational systems. It’s interesting how this is going—it’s also easier to confront each day cause it’s right there the minute we leave our home at the tip of our fingers.

Maukua built a fire lane Mauka to Makai and forgot to run one along the fence line, but that was typically designed to set control fires after training. Firefighters in this case are the bottom feeders in the food chain and indispensiable–worthless. It’s a sad thing. Why the fire could not be put out immediately was because too much water would flow to the ocean.

Firelanes were built with toixic contaminates from military bases. The reason for removal is because the Pentagon’s sustainable plus plan for the 21st century was to maintain a level of safe environment for their military families. The question is ‘what about those of us that are in the path of this illegal transfer of contaminated soil through our Waianae Community? Don’t we count in the sustainable plus plans?

Although the phrosphates were burn’t in the control burn the DU is still existing and blowing in the wind just waiting for a host to mastisize cancer.

Then the question begs to who is going to take care of these cancer dying humans? Family? Home care? Medical care? Military? Maybe being the first abortion State in their US system we can have a right to life to sustain the Military in Hawaii. Disgusting!!! But, whose to stop this autrocities–Christians?

Not trusting in God, but I send my children to worship in the house of Christians –yup I’m that hyprocrite too.

So, we get up in the morning and think of ways to research, think the material, take it to the home grown media artistically and express our critical thinking each day. And piss off the people that are using the military to further their existence. What an exciting life!

I am teaching in a school that had students at guardrails. And use their thinking skills to develop ‘passion’ for the housless. In truth, we educators know that we have to teach in such a way that the students sitting before are the future poverty in Hawaii. Which brings to mind why Waianae schools are so violent. The 80% free lunch tells us that Waianae future will be poverty stricken. So this school that I am at have many different paths out of poverty because the teachers and community turned their educational school around on it’s head with–we care about our children. Waianae when I came did no such thing and intend to keep the status quo of nothingness.

Kamehameha school contributed a lot to this nothingness. Koa and Pat Holems (Kam) four years ago ‘carved out’ night school from Nanakuli to preserve power in Nanakuli High School. Their lame excuse is because the students needed counseling–your right! Kam only do process of elimination to the brink of causing suicide among our Na Kanaka teens.

Which non profit groups make millions of dollars off this cash crop–teen suicide in Waianae.

So, to end this yada yada we move on each day on Maoliworld with mainstream media. Civil Beat made that very clear that they suck and we are awesome. We just have to convince our Na Kanaka that they should write on this forum without any entrapments to process eliminate our voices because certain ‘hackers’ can’t handle their own simplistic stupidity.

I listened in the dark to a mother who had children in the school that I am teaching at tell me how she had to leave behind all the childrens things, their clothes, toys, behind because they couldn’t pack it on their little car at guardrails the eve before the eviction.

I know Dwight (spirit world) caused this to happen so that we can have a path into the future. I know that he killed himself for good reasons. But, how far have we come only to have such solutions be real and trying in our daily lives. This is bizzare, but you move on down the path regardless.

Pono gave me the quality time that I had asked for while we sat in Jim Albertini kitchen, just before we went nite nite. I’m still basking in the glow of Uncle Gabby’s concert in Waimanalo. How we pulled this one off was amazing. Thanks to our family in the spirit world my brother, uncle Gabby, my granduncle Edward Niaupio–we practiced Native Tenants rights and accessed–holoholo style.

If Israel attacks Iran, ‘the whole fabric of the Middle East will unravel’

Israel Shamir, a Russian Israeli, writes: If Israel attacks Iran, “the whole fabric of the Middle East will unravel. This juggernaut would be unstoppable. After Iran, Syria would fall. After Syria, Saudi Arabia. It will be the classic domino game: Iran rejoiced when Iraq fell. Saudis wish Iran to fall. Israel wants all of them to fall. This is inscribed in their Clean Break paper and its source, Oded Yinon’s paper, which they follow religiously.”

FREE E-Books: THE WAR ON ISLAM and 9/11 UNVEILED

August 13, 2010

Dear Amelia,

At our rally for Wikileaks whistleblower Bradley Manning last weekend, journalist and activist Phyllis Bennis said “Wars need secrets. Illegal wars need illegal secrets…Democracy needs whistleblowers.” Democracy also needs us to continue to raise our voices to end illegal occupations.

August 31st marks the drawdown of U.S. troops in Iraq to 50,000. While this is a step in the right direction–no doubt inspired by the tireless push of the peace movement–Iraqis will continue to suffer from the presence of 50,000 U.S. troops and 75,000 private contractors in their country. Many of our troops may be redeployed to Afghanistan.

CODEPINK members across the country are taking action to call for a full withdrawal from both Iraq and Afghanistan and to bring our war dollars home to rebuild America! Join us by signing our Iraq Debacle petition to Obama and Congress

!

Some folks are also hosting film screenings/house parties; others are taking to the streets for peace gatherings and vigils. Use our action ideas page for more inspiration

!

CODEPINK is partnering with Iraq Veterans Against the War, Military Families Speak Out, Veterans for Peace and many peace groups to make sure the true cost of the Iraq War is told. What will your community do to bring our troops and our war dollars home and hold those who led us into war accountable?

Let’s raise the whistle of peace and justice to our lips and blow loud enough for decision makers to hear,
Bonnie, Dana, Farida, Gael, Gayle, Joan, Jodie, Medea, Nancy, Rae, Victoria and Valerie

Sign the Iraq Debacle petition to Obama and Congress

As Wall Street Support Shifts from Left to Right, Liberal Pundits Respond to Gibbs’ Attack

White House press secretary Robert Gibbs became the spokesperson for Obama Administration contempt toward the left on Tuesday. The display of contempt came in the midst of a nearly 70 percent shift in Wall Street executive donations from Democratic candidates to Republican candidates ahead of the November mid-term elections.

Gibbs Just Did His Job… Told America What the White House Thinks of Progressives; So here’s what we have to do…

Gibbs reflected the conversations he’s hearing inside the White House. He reflected what Obama, Emanuel and the other DINO lying corporatist, bankster-suck-ups are saying behind closed doors. We got a brief glimpse into how they truly think. With the defeat of Colorado’s Romanoff, the White House’s attitude that the progressives are un-necessary may have been reinforced. We have to get organized and exert our power!

Religion & Using fear to control “White” America.

Bigotry is fast becoming a major tool of the conservative movement because religious conservatives seem to all agree that God makes mistakes and that it is up to them to sort them out and segregate them from other “good” Christians. To me this is not a very Christian attitude toward a fellow human and fellow American. But again, it is a great political tool used to divide us.

For so long, charity & wealth have been separate. Corporations sponsor events for publicity; individuals donate to see their names on institutional walls.

120 supporters rallied to “Free Bradley Manning!” in Quantico, VA, a small town within a US Marine Corps base. Pfc. Manning was transfer after two months in solitary confinement in Kuwait to Quantico only seven days earlier. Organized by CodePink and Courage to Resist in only five days, the rally was covered by CNN, ABC, New York Times, international and local media. Despite being declared off limits to all service members stationed at Quantico, a number of Marines stopped by to talk about the issues.

photosPrivate First Class Bradley Manning, a 22-year-old intelligence analyst stationed in Iraq, stands accused of disclosing classified video depicting American troops in Iraq shooting civilians from an Apache helicopter in 2007. Eleven people were killed, including two Reuters employees, and two children were critically injured. No charges have been filed against the soldiers who did the killing. News sources have also speculated about Manning’s involvement in the leak of over 90,000 secret documents (collectively known as the Afghanistan “war logs”) made public by WikiLeaks on July 25.

Speakers included: Jeff Paterson, Bradley Manning Support Network and project director of Courage to Resist; Medea Benjamin, cofounder of CodePink; Phyllis Bennis, writer and peace activist; Josh Stieber, Iraq veteran of the ground unit that appears in the leaked “Collateral Murder” video; Matt Southworth, Iraq Veterans Against the War; Ray McGovern, retired CIA officer and officer, founder of Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity; Ellen Barfield, Veterans for Peace; Andrew Castro, ANSWER Coalition; Rev. Lennox Yearwood, Hip Hop Caucus. Organizations that mobilized groups of individuals to attend included: CodePink, ANSWER Coalition, Truth 911, Iraq Veterans Against the War, Veterans for Peace, World Can’t Wait, Food Not Bombs, along with regional Washington DC activists.

March to Support Alleged Whistle-blower, Oklahoma native Bradley Manning
manning logo

Thursday, August 12, 8pm.
Meet at the corner of NE 16th and Lincoln, Oklahoma City OK, for a march to the State Capitol

Oklahomans will show support for and solidarity with Pfc. Bradley Manning, accused of leaking documents about the Afghanistan War, with a march at dusk near the state capitol. The Army intelligence analyst, originally from Cresent, Oklahoma, is being held in the brig at Quantico Marine Corps Base in Virginia.

The action is being organized locally by the Oklahoma Center for Conscience

, with support from the Oklahoma Chapter of the National Lawyers Guild.

James M. Branum, an attorney that works with OCC on military law cases, calls the Pentagon’s treatment of Manning “extreme” and designed to set up the case “as an example of the punishment waiting for others who would consider exposing violations of military regs and international law.”

“We are saying that exposing war crimes is not a crime,” he said.

The whistle-blower behind the Vietnam era’s Pentagon Papers, Daniel Ellsberg, has called Mr. Manning a hero. ”I admire the courage of Bradley Manning for sacrificing himself to make the public aware of the futility of the war in Afghanistan,” says Ellsberg.

“Blowing the whistle on war crimes is not a crime,” says former Marine Corporal Jeff Paterson of Courage to Resist, a group teaming up with the Bradley Manning Support Network to raise funds for Manning’s defense.

by Jeff Paterson, Courage to Resist

August 12, 2010 update – The Bradley Manning Support Network

has accepted donations from 632 individuals for a total of $33,114 as of 1pm PST Aug. 11 for the defense of Private First Class Bradley Manning (photo right).

The Network (bradleymanning.org

), a grassroots initiative formed to defend and support accused whistle-blower Pfc. Bradley Manning, has partnered with Courage to Resist, a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting military objectors to host the fund.

“WikiLeaks

confirmed late Tuesday it will split with Courage to Resist, an Oakland, Calif.-based group, the expected $100,000 cost of hiring a civilian defense attorney to supplement the military lawyers assigned to Manning’s case,” noted the Associated Press.

As of this writing, Manning has not yet chosen a civilian attorney to defend him in the expected trial. “We have heard from the family and the military lawyers assigned to Bradley that the cost of his defense will be significant,” said Mike Gogulski, an online activist and founder of the Bradley Manning Support Network. “We are also concerned that Bradley may choose his legal counsel based on his available funds. If he fears his family will absorb the cost of the trial, he might choose a less experienced, less expensive attorney. We’re very concerned about the ramifications of such a decision.”

Tomgram: Mark Engler, Paying Oil’s True Cost

I won’t claim it was the first time in all these months, just the first I noticed. On Monday, my hometown paper had no mention of the Gulf of Mexico, BP, or what we’ve come to call its disastrous “spill,” though that word hardly catches the dimensions of what happened. On Tuesday, the catastrophe that filled front pages and topped the TV news month after month returned to the paper as a reporter-less seven-paragraph piece,

headlined “Relief Well Nears Point of Intercept,” and tucked away at the bottom of page 15 (with a credit line reading only, “by The New York Times”). This was, of course, just a week after, as the piece put it, “a ‘static kill,’ or ‘top kill’ cemented the runaway well.”

Runaway no more. Now, only the story is running away.

Last week, the government also announced — and this was front-page news in the Times — that 4.9 million runaway barrels of oil had poured into the Gulf since April, and that, according to a government report, all but 26%

of it was now miraculously gone. The news in the headlines seemed rosy indeed. Almost a frog-turns-into-prince happy ending. Of course, given the strange, collusive relationship between the Obama administration and BP in the Gulf, including suppressing or discrediting

scientific research on and media coverage of the spill, keeping key assessments of damage from the public

, all sorts of lingering unanswered questions

, and the low-ball figures both the administration and BP have repeatedly released since the Deepwater Horizon rig exploded, these should hardly be treated as gospel numbers. That they should not, however, was only a page 16 follow-up story

in the Times; and for more startling figures — that, for instance, closer to half

of the spewed oil may remain in the Gulf — you needed to look elsewhere

.

Meanwhile, the government and BP were reportedly close to an agreement on a “clean up and compensation fund” that would, curiously enough, be pegged to that company’s oil revenues from the Gulf or, as the Wall Street Journal put it

, “that would give both sides an incentive to continue production in the Gulf… [and] would represent a new level of interaction between BP and the federal government.” BP’s new chief operating officer Doug Suttles even briefly suggested

that the company might return to the same reservoir of oil and take another shot at drilling there. But no matter, unless the capped well were to blow again, we’re obviously at one of those 24/7 to 0/7 moments that seem increasingly the essence of media coverage of any subject.

Not so fast, though. Mark Engler, TomDispatch regular

and author of How to Rule the World: The Coming Battle Over the Global Economy

, wants us to consider the real damage and real cost to our society from Big Oil’s predations. (By the way, the image accompanying Engler’s piece, “BP’s Black Gold,” comes from a series of collages on water issues by Phyllis Ewen

CLAIMING YOUR ANCESTORS LANDS — ALLODIAL ISSUES…..

The following article was posted in the IOLANI – The Royal Hawk.

This message is being sent again because the EXHIBIT section was not covered.

The legal documents should contain the following in the following order:

1) Cover page (covers ancestors name, RP/Royal Patent Number, LCA/ Land Commission Award number

2) Affidavit/Certification (family genealogies)

3) Heirs and Assigns page

4) EXHIBITS (Write EXHIBITS in top right hand corner):
a. RP/Royal Patent LCA/Land Commission Award brief history (shows names of deceased owners and successors)
b. Survey Notes (obtain from the Archives, Honolulu, Oahu, Hawaii) which shows the map, dimensions of the land(s). (ask the Archivist how to obtain your survey notes….. also ask how to look at the books available documenting awards from the Great Mahele/ Kamehameha III period, an extra step to take is to find out the testimonies in regards to the parcel(s)/lands belonging to your families.

5) JURAT, NOTARY page

6) Xerox two (2) or more sets. The notary usually wants to do only two (2) for a set. If more copies are needed for family members, you could make copies after the notary signs the documents, and even after the filing is completed.

7) obtain a notary signature from your Credit Union, bank — First Hawaiian Bank has a preferred customer account that you may be able to qualify for……worth it because the cost of a Notary will be nothing/free……….at the Credit Unions and some banks also give free notary signature……cousin paid about $50 a couple of weeks ago —$5 per notary signature.

8) take the two (2) sets of documents to the Bureau of Conveyances, Regular System section and pay $25 for a set which covers up to 20 pages. Any amount of pages over 20 will cost $1 per page.

August 2, 2010

Aloha e Puanani,

How often do you swim out to industrial ocean fish farms to check if they’re polluting or using unapproved antibiotics? If a proposal to gut environmental regulations and oversight in Conservation Districts is passed you’d better start! The Office of Coastal and Conservation Lands is planning to pass oversight of corporations’ environmental and cultural impacts in Conservation Districts onto citizens by removing a requirement for annual reports and moving to a “complaint based” monitoring system.

Public hearings across the Islands are being held to get input on the rule changes. The future of some of Hawai`i’s most environmentally and culturally important lands are at stake. Attend a meeting near you and tell the agency to do its job — making sure companies are complying with regulations.

Public Hearing Schedule

All meetings start at 6pm and will end by 8pm.

August 5 -Wailuku, Maui

Velma M Santos Community Center, 395 Waena Pl

August 9 – Kona, Big Island

Mayors Conference Room (103), 75-5706 Kuakini Hwy

August 10 – Hilo, Big Island

Conservation Districts were set up to protect vulnerable lands and culturally important places. Don’t let the Lingle Administration hand them over to developers on its way out the door. Attend a hearing near you.

Please spread the word to your friends and `ohana

hi Tane,

Some call these important finds “revisionist history” and they love it……….

Some call it hidden information and they love it………….

Some/Most get somewhat angry due to the lies, propaganda, indoctrination……and love the “new” info…….

The bottom line is that the premeditation by treasonous persons/pirates supported by the U.S. are issues that results in the knowledge that kanaka maoli/aboriginal Hawaiians still own their ancestral lands………..the intent is for everyone to copy, print and keep the documents with their land documents, etc.

A significant number of Hawaiians are returning to their ancestral lands or being given the support thru protective orders, documents, papers to protect our families properties, etc.

Perhaps the following article will make many understand where I’m coming from as well……..this is just one of the articles that have really pissed me off in the past………….and could probably be used for discussion purposes as well…………….aloha.

Suppression of Hawaiian Culture at Kamehameha Schools
Author:
Kawika Eyre
Month:
01
Year:
2004

Kāwika Eyre teaches Hawaiian language at Kamehameha Schools Kapālama campus high school. For the past two years he has been on reassignment conducting an oral history project relating to the KS controversy of the 1990s. Some 230 interviews are now stored in the KS Archives, covering all aspects of those times. Kāwika is a member of the Hawaiian Cultural Center Project Committee and a representative of Nā Kumu o Kamehameha. The following article is a speech Eyre gave at a retreat for members of Hui Ho‘ohawai‘i in January of 2004.

Aloha pumehana kākou e nā hoa makamaka o Kamehameha.

The word we are using for this conference, huliau, refers to a turning point, a time of change. Interestingly, another meaning of huliau is to think of the past, to recall what has happened. Coincidental to our topic this evening, Mrs. Pūku‘i gives the following example in the “Hawaiian Dictionary.” “Ua ‘ākoakoa mākou no ka huliau ‘ana.” We are gathered together to recall the past.

I have been asked by the HCCP committee to be our guide on this journey, this huliau ‘ana, that we may know something of whom we have been as we seek a path into our future. Several people have helped me as readers. Their suggestions and enthusiasm have been invaluable. Thank you Randie Fong, Janet Zisk, Ke‘ala Kwan, Nona Beamer and Dale Noble.

Much of the material I will present tonight was gathered during my recent two-year reassignment—as requested by Nā Kumu o Kamehameha and supported in part by a grant from the Parrent Fund. I was asked to interview people and write about the controversy of the mid-to-late 90s. Some of the material that follows is excerpted directly from a manuscript in progress. Much of it traces to archival sources. I am indebted to George Kanahele, Loring Hudson, the staff of KS publications over the years, and others. As they all have affirmed by their work, in our effort to understand ourselves, we must look to our past. Huliau.

In most ways our past begins with Pauahi. Surely the most quoted passage of Pauahi’s Will reads:

“I desire my trustees to provide first and chiefly a good education in the common English branches, and also instruction in morals and in such useful knowledge as may tend to make good and industrious men and women…”

Many have wondered and some have spoken much about what Pauahi may have meant by her words, “providing a good education in the common English branches.”

In Pauahi’s final years of life, 150 or 57% of the schools in Hawai‘i were conducted completely in Hawaiian, primarily using non-Hawaiian content from the curriculum of the common English school. Those of us working in Hawaiian have all studied the anatomy books, the math books, the geography books of this period, most—if not all—taken from the “common English branches” of the day and translated into Hawaiian. But by content, it was “common English branches.”

We might remind ourselves as well of Pauahi’s close relationship to her cousin Princess Ruth Ke‘elikōlani, a physically stern but warm-hearted woman, now widely admired for her staunch, steadfast support of Hawaiian language and culture. The few samples we have of Pauahi’s handwritten Hawaiian come from her letters to Ruth, who refused to use English.

Gladys Brandt: “My father and mother, like virtually all Hawaiians at that time, wanted their children to succeed, and they believed that to do so required their children to adopt Western ways. Unfortunately, they thought this was possible only by leaving behind the Hawaiian language and culture. If they were alive today, they would feel differently.”

To be sure, in many native families of that time, there was a growing recognition, resignation perhaps, that English was a necessary condition for success in a changing Hawaiian world. In September of 2002, the summer before her death, Gladys Brandt described the attitude of her parents some twenty years after the founding of the Schools: “My father and mother, like virtually all Hawaiians at that time, wanted their children to succeed, and they believed that to do so required their children to adopt Western ways. Unfortunately, they thought this was possible only by leaving behind the Hawaiian language and culture. If they were alive today, they would feel differently.”

And yet Pauahi, in her day, was praised as a woman who took the best of both worlds, a woman of the highest Hawaiian stature, a woman quite perfectly bi-lingual and bi-cultural.

What I am getting at here is that I find it very difficult to accept the notion that Pauahi would have looked on in any way approvingly at what was happening to Hawaiian language and culture at Kamehameha in those first years of her schools. That violence against the Hawaiian world strikes us today as unpardonable. Yet both Pauahi and the will remain silent on these matters: she left no guidelines for the fledgling school. She died before she could know.

Let’s go back in time to those first days at Kamehameha.

On November 4, 1887, King Kalākaua, then the embodiment of Hawaiian cultural revitalization—not the least hula—spoke to the students in Hawaiian at the dedication of Kamehameha School for Boys.

Standing near him and giving the formal prayer that day was Reverend Sereno E. Bishop, no relation to Charles Bishop, but the annexationist son of a missionary. Sereno Bishop was a haole who could speak Hawaiian. He prayed for the Kamehameha boys in their language. In English, whenever the subject of hula came up—and Bishop brought it up often in his Christian newspaper “The Friend”—he ranted.

So from the very start, standing side by side at that opening ceremony, were profoundly opposing views of something so quintessentially Hawaiian as the hula. Kalākaua would celebrate hula; Sereno Bishop would denigrate hula. Confusion, conflict of cultural identity from day one at Kamehameha School. And the issue of hula will run like a jolting live wire through the Kamehameha story.

Kalākaua and the Rev. Bishop stood that day at Kaiwi‘ula. Today, as we know, the Bishop Museum is located on this site. The name Kaiwi‘ula, which translates as “the red bone,” refers to a battle fought on these fields long, long ago.

In the early years of Kamehameha Schools, another battle was to be fought at this site, this one a quiet clash of cultures where teachers and staff of the young school purposely and relentlessly sought to stamp out the native language and all aspects of Hawaiian ways.

The first principal at Kamehameha was a man named William Oleson. The Reverend Oleson was a fervid democrat with no time for monarchies, and he had a particularly low opinion of Kalākaua as a king, saying that he ruled by bribery, corruption, lasciviousness, sorcery and tyranny. In the same year that Oleson took charge at Kamehameha, 1887, he was a member of a haole committee that forced a rewritten constitution on Kalākaua, sharply limiting the king’s power. This was the Bayonet Constitution.

One of the first orders William Oleson gave at Kamehameha was to ban the Hawaiian language. English was the only language accepted for the work time and play time of Pauahi’s school. Hawaiian was forbidden in the classroom and on the playing fields, and the boys were punished if they were heard speaking the language of their families. This was in the late 1880s and early 90s, which means that Hawaiian was banned at Kamehameha well before it was officially outlawed at Hawai‘i’s public and private schools in 1896, three years after the overthrow.

“…teachers and staff of the young school purposely and relentlessly sought to stamp out the native language and all aspects of Hawaiian ways.”

The anti-Hawaiian campaign at Kaiwi‘ula was relentless. Non-stop. For decades. Every teacher was to be a teacher of English. Every incentive was offered, every tactic tried: slogans, “Better English Weeks,” encouragement to sit in the library and read books, praise and prizes for pronunciation, speech contests, oratory at assemblies, discussion groups, debating societies, drama clubs, off-campus passes, free periods, an “English holiday” for anyone not caught talking “native” for a month.

Within three years, student compliance was showing in school statistics. The October 1890 issue of the KS publication “Handicraft” reported: “Thus far the average number of those who have earned the Holiday has been sixty-five percent of the number enrolled.”

In 1894, William Oleson co-wrote a book with a title that said much about this man who had led Kamehameha Schools. Its title: “Picturesque Hawai‘i: A Charming Description of Her Unique History, Strange People, Exquisite Climate, Wondrous Volcanoes, Luxurious Productions, Beautiful Cities, Corrupt Monarchy, Recent Revolution and Provisional Government.” His co-author was James L. Stevens, United States minister to Hawai‘i in 1893, who had ordered American troops ashore, effectively guaranteeing the overthrow of the monarchy. Stevens wanted nothing more or less than annexation, and Oleson was with him all the way.

Let us be clear: The boys under Oleson at Kamehameha were not American annexationists. They were Hawaiians, and they were instinctive royalists, reverential to their ali‘i nui. In the first years of the school, which were the last years of the monarchy, King Kalākaua paid a visit to a classroom. The boys stood of their own accord and sang “Hawai‘i Pono‘ï.” When Queen Lili‘uokalani visited and drank coffee, no one would touch her cup afterwards; it was sacred to the ali‘i, kapu.

As George Kanahele relates, following the 1893 overthrow of the kingdom, the boys voted with their feet against this school that was run by annexationists. So many boys left and did not come back that enrollment went down by almost half and stayed down for the next two years.

Newly appointed principal Theodore Richards replaced William Oleson. Richards’ approach to resolving the enrollment crisis was to depoliticize and Hawaiianize the school. He had a good feel for working with Kamehameha boys, and he had a great appreciation of Hawaiian music and language. He put Hawaiian songs on the glee club program alongside Western classical songs, to great success in performance.

That was really the only time in the first decades at Kamehameha when the Hawaiian language was given fuller voice. That, and in chapel at Kaumakapili Church, where the “Lord’s Prayer” was sung in Hawaiian. Other prayers and sermons also were in “native.”

Hawaiian music flourished at Kamehameha. Hawaiian dance did not. Reverend Sereno Bishop, who had given the prayer at the opening of the boys’ school, maintained his relationship with Kamehameha as well as his strong anti-hula convictions. The dance, he wrote, was “one of the foul florescenses” on the “great poison tree of idolatry.” Bishop said hula corroded Hawaiians—and labeled it moral leprosy. This attitude, though more mildly expressed, endured until 1965.

No right-minded principal at Kamehameha would want foul florescence and moral leprosy on his campus. No right-minded Bishop Estate trustee would want it on estate lands either. There were early leases that banned hula along with liquor. And among students it was rumored that language in Pauahi’s will expressly forbade hula. Not true. Hawaiian was not heard in the halls of Kamehameha and, increasingly, Hawaiian students at Kamehameha could no longer hear Hawaiian within themselves: The “Handicraft” issue of March, 1897 carried the following—to us—somber reflection:

Kamehameha Schools 1893: Enrollments dropped by almost half as the boys voted with their feet against this school run by annexationists.

“Five years ago the Rev. Sereno Bishop taught a class of Kamehameha boys in the Kaumakapili Sunday School. Then it was necessary for him to employ his excellent knowledge of the native tongue to make himself understood. After this interval, in which he has seen little of the boys, he comes back to preach to them and naturally he chooses the Hawaiian language in which to address them, and for the same reasons as before. It transpired that a census taken after the sermon disclosed the fact that several had difficulty in understanding him, and eleven boys from the Manual, twenty-one from the Preparatory and twenty-one from the Girls’ School did not understand Hawaiian at all.”

We should not be surprised by the success of Kamehameha at dismembering Hawaiian. Early Kamehameha was essentially an English immersion school. As our friends from the Pūnana Leo movement have so aptly demonstrated, immersion is the most powerful of language pedagogies. Since most of the students were boarders, the influence of the Hawaiian home was thoroughly lessened and the opportunity to immerse students in English optimal. Though the prohibition against Hawaiian was in place for many years to come, its existence grew increasingly irrelevant as the language vanished in the children.

But—and perhaps this reflects something of that same confusion we noted from day one at Kamehameha regarding attitudes towards hula—though Hawaiian language was officially banned at Kamehameha, it was never completely rejected. Indeed a cynic—or a careful historian—might detect an increase in the lip-service paid “things Hawaiian” at a rate roughly equivalent to the actual decrease in authentic “Hawaiian things” at Kamehameha. The word tokenism creeps into our vocabulary when speaking of these years.

By 1900, for example, students were permitted, even encouraged to participate in non-and extra-curricular opportunities to learn and practice their native heritage. Kamehameha School for Girl’s students took short, off-campus excursions to the surrounding mountains where they sang Hawaiian songs and danced hula, though in sitting position we may presume. The school newspaper of the time, “The Blue and White,” often had articles, in Hawaiian occasionally, highlighting or explaining Hawaiian music and legends. Students from the boys’ and girls’ schools built and entered a float depicting kapa making in the fifth annual Floral Parade of Honolulu. They won the grand prize for Best Decorated Float.

In KS music classes, Hawaiian songs were taught alongside American and European compositions. Well-known composer and alumnus, Charles E. King, taught music at the schools from 1900 through 1902. In his teaching, he placed special emphasis on Hawaiian songs and melodies. Hawaiian mele were practiced and performed for the annual Founder’s Day.

Guest speakers (usually not Hawaiian) addressed the students, encouraging them to practice their culture and language.

For example, on March 22, 1902, the “Blue and White” reported: “On Friday evening Mr. Frank Archer of Pearl City delivered a fine address to the girls in Hawaiian. His subject was ‘Children, Obey Your Parents!’ His points were beautifully expressed and held the attention of every pupil.”

A year later “The Blue and White” reported that “On Feb. 28, 1903, a missionary meeting, conducted by Rev. O. Gulick was held in our Assembly Hall. He told us of the missionary work that is being done among the Japanese on these Islands and also about some of the customs and characteristics of the Japanese. He spoke first in English and, at the close, in Hawaiian. He reminded us of the beauty of the Hawaiian language and that we must not forget our mother tongue.”

Reverend Gulick, in 1908, again spoke to the first grade students at the girls’ school. He closed once again by reminding the children of the beauty of the Hawaiian language, and that they must not forget their mother tongue.

The comment to me almost gratuitously belies the horrific reality of the context of the day. In 1908, all around Hawai‘i, including Kamehameha, first graders were being whacked, yelled at and kept after school for speaking their native tongue in the classroom and on the playground.

The mixture of messages is mind-boggling to us: don’t forget your mother tongue and for sure don’t you dare speak it while at Kamehameha! And we know from kūpuna that the slow pounding in of the unworthiness of Hawaiianess was soul-wrenching for Hawaiian youth.

One kupuna and keiki of those days, Gladys Brandt, in interview late in life, remembered bitterly the sense of shame she felt at being Hawaiian. She was born in 1906 to David Kanuha, who was the tailor at the Boys’ School, and Esther Staines, who was in the first KSG graduating class. As a young girl observing the students, Gladys noticed that they were using lemon juice to rub out the stains from their white dresses, the uniform of their day. The impressionable Gladys sneaked a couple of lemons and, in her hiding place, rubbed the juice hard into her skin. To lighten it. To whiten it. Her shame was not just skin deep. It dug bone deep. It dug down Hawaiian soul deep.

In the early 1920s, the advent of Song Contest provided two or more Hawaiian songs per student per year. We don’t have statistics on this, but we think that very few students by now had even at best more than a meager understanding of their native language. Thus begins a long tradition at Kamehameha of native children singing beautiful Hawaiian songs of which they have little or no understanding. A tradition that extends through most of the schooling years of those seated here tonight, and, to a certain extent, continues today.

Publicly, attitudes toward Hawaiian were often tolerant: one-time principal and teacher at Kamehameha School for Boys, Uldrick Thompson, in a 1920-campus presentation, reminded the students of the beauty and intelligence of the Hawaiian language, culture, and people.

“Hawaiian language was allowed only in the laundry room on laundry days at Kamehameha School for Girls.”

Privately, back in the dorms, attitudes were hardly so upbeat: Zena Schuman in interview some ten years ago, described how Hawaiian language was allowed only in the laundry room on laundry days at KSG. She also described how, on Saturday evenings, having posted lookouts down the hallways and near the front steps, the young women would line up on the beautiful double-curved stairway of the old KSG residence at Kaiwi‘ula. The coast clear, they would whisper their songs and dance gently as they stood on the dark wood stairs.

But there was to be change. In 1924 Lydia K. Aholo, hānai daughter of Lili‘uokalani, graduate of Kamehameha School for Girls and Oberlin College, became the first formal instructor of Hawaiian language at Kamehameha Schools. A torch is lit in a culturally darkened school!

This 1924-25 school year course in Hawaiian was compulsory for all seniors. Students received three hours of Hawaiian language instruction a week, using as textbooks the Hawaiian translation of the Bible and the “Life of Lincoln.” The student paper, “Ka Mō‘ï,” recognized this course as one of the highlights of the year.

However, this first attempt at formal teaching of Hawaiian language lasted only that one year.

In a letter dated April 14, 1978, Frank Midkiff, KS president and later trustee, reminisced: “In the early 1920s, I thought it would be good to help our young people learn Hawaiian. So we got the trustees to make Hawaiian language a required course. The students were very interested in it and happy. But soon several parents came in and objected. ‘Why do you teach our children Hawaiian? We can do that ourselves. Before, here, our children were punished if they spoke Hawaiian. They were required to speak English. That is what they need. Punahou, St. Louis, the public schools don’t teach Hawaiian. You should teach them Latin or French or German. The University of Hawai‘i and other colleges won’t give them credit for studying Hawaiian … to enter or for graduation.’

Midkiff continues: “I hated to give up what I knew was good for them. I took it to the trustees. The parents had talked to the trustees before me. The trustees said, ‘Well, let’s make it elective. Maybe that will be acceptable.’ But before long, after it was made elective, several gave it up and before long the courses had to be withdrawn. All followed the parents‘ inclination and the teaching of Hawaiian language and culture was given up for that time being.”

But Midkiff, a speaker of Hawaiian, did not give up. Later that year, he and Dr. John H. Wise, a professor of Hawaiian language at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa, wrote and published a Hawaiian language textbook, “A First Course in Hawaiian Language.”

Nor, it seems, did the students give up on wanting more Hawaiian. This quote is from the KS Archives Memory Book Vol. V 1924-27, but without specific date: “A regular meeting of the combined student councils of the Kamehameha schools was held to discuss the question ‘What should be added or dropped from the present course of study? Lawrence Chang spoke on behalf of the tenth grade boys. He suggested a special course in the Hawaiian language. Abigail Ka‘aloa expressed that the tenth grade girls also desired a special course in Hawaiian…”

One year later, and two years after the first Hawaiian language course was dropped, John Wise was hired and Hawaiian was reinstated in the curriculum, using the Midkiff/Wise textbook. Another cultural torch is lit at Kamehameha.

While Hawaiian language from this date on seems to be finding a modest place in the KS curriculum, hula definitely is not.

In 1929, according to Kanahele, a group of alumni held a fundraiser on campus. For scholarships. The hula was danced. Twice. It was for a good cause. But the principals of the girls’ school and the preparatory school, Maude Schaeffer and Maude Post, were outraged and agitated. They went to the trustees, saying that “dances of this nature tended to neutralize the strenuous efforts made by the teaching force to obliterate certain undesirable racial tendencies in the students.” The trustees agreed that a strict watch should be maintained to see that nothing further of this kind was permitted on campus or at affairs with which the schools were in any way connected.

The young ‘Iolani Luahine, enrolled at Kamehameha during these years, was withdrawn when her aunty and kumu hula Keahi Luahine became aware of the missionary attitudes against hula on campus. We have no date on this but ‘Iolani did graduate from St. Andrew’s Priory with the class of 1935.

Several years ago Papa Henry ‘Auwae met with our students and bitterly reminisced over the fact that he, too, had to leave Kamehameha about this time. Thrown out for repeatedly speaking Hawaiian.

In 1930, Dr. Donald Mitchell from Great Bend, Kansas, joined the staff as an instructor of English.

Dr. Mitchell started a club for Kamehameha boys in 1931 that allowed them to study and practice Hawaiian cultural traditions. Hui ‘Ōiwi, regularly met to learn and demonstrate Hawaiian cultural practices, especially games. From 1930 until the 1960s, the yearbooks of the Schools often published pictures of the club’s activities, most often showing handsome, brown boys in malo, demonstrating traditional Hawaiian games. Membership in the club was by invitation only. Years later, 1941 graduate Roy Benham noted the popularity of the club:

“Oh yeah, everybody wanted to join…it was a good club. I teased Don about that when I went back to teach. He was still there. I said, Don, the only reason you didn’t select me for Hui ‘Ōiwi was that my ‘okole was too white. You know it just seemed to me that you were selecting the real Hawaiian looking ones.”

Hui ‘Ōiwi, 1941: “Oh yeah, everybody wanted to join. It was a real good club.” (Roy Benham)

In the spring of 1931, as part of a new plan for education, Dr. Homer F. Barnes, recently appointed principal of the School for Boys, dropped the Hawaiian language class from the curriculum. In an undated newspaper article from that period, Dr. Barnes offers forth the reason for the change as being a great opportunity for higher scholarship and adjustment of teaching loads.

Immediately after this announcement, the staff at the Bernice Pauahi Bishop Museum arranged for Kamehameha Schools’ students to take Hawaiian culture classes at the museum in place of the dropped language classes. Lectures were initially conducted for seniors on a weekly basis, later to be published by the KS Press in 1933 in a 300-page book entitled “Ancient Hawaiian Civilization.”

Sometime in 1935, several seventh grade girls approached classmate Winona Beamer—already a young cultural torch to her friends—and asked her to help them learn the renowned chants and songs of the Beamer family. Hui Kumulipo, the girls’ club for Hawaiian culture, was born.

Hui Kumulipo came together with Hui ‘Ōiwi a few times a year for joint Hawaiian cultural activities, the most anticipated of these being the annual May lū‘au, prepared by the boys and girls in the traditional manner.

During the coming years when Hawaiian language classes started, stopped, and started again, the Hawaiian clubs of Kamehameha Schools were the only venue for the recognition, encouragement and practice of Hawaiian knowledge.

At one such club-sponsored occasion, Mary Kawena Pūku‘i brought her hānai daughter Pat Bacon up to campus for a KSG assembly and the beautiful girl did a standing hula. Winona Beamer, chafing as she must that Kamehameha girls could not stand and dance but only watch, was furious at what she saw rightly as administrative duplicity. Much to the astonishment of her classmates, Winona stood up and stomped out of the assembly.

Hui Kumulipo, the girls’ Hawaiian club, was initiated in 1935 by Winona Beamer and her 7th grade classmates.

Nona was not your everyday, docile student. In 1937, as a 9th grader she was kicked out of Kamehameha, charged with doing a standing hula. The occasion was the “Trustees’ Tea” held on a Friday afternoon in the area known as “The Pink Garden.” The chant was the “Oli Aloha.” It was this chant that welcomed you here this evening. Winona had known it from her earliest years.

As she walked in, chanting for the trustees that afternoon, Winona’s hand gestures and body movements slipped ever so slightly away from her. Musical as she was, she became one with her chant. When she finished, principal Maude Schaeffer stood up, strode over to her, and announced: “Winona! You may pack your bags!” Winona, had crossed the line and violated the ban on standing hula at Kamehameha.

In a interview in 2003, Aunty Nona described how incensed she was: “I carried my bag all the way down to the gate and I was fuming! Just fuming!” Over that weekend Maude Schaeffer apparently had second thoughts. Winona was reinstated the following week.

During the war years, “Ka Mō‘ï” ran columns on Hawaiian language entitled “Nā Ha‘awina Hawai‘i.” These included glossary and 10 or more sample sentences listed in both Hawaiian and English. A September 1943 lesson is prefaced: “The Hui ‘Ōiwi is sponsoring this column for the third year with the hope that the Kamehameha students will learn more of the language of their ancestors through these simple, practical lessons. A sincere ‘Mahalo nui’ to Mrs. Mary Kawena Pūku‘i of the Bishop Museum for her invaluable aid.”

Conversational Hawaiian was introduced in the elementary and intermediate divisions in 1944. Mrs. Pūku‘i was the teacher. Many of the stories she used were later published in her books with Caroline Curtis.

Winona Beamer from the 1941 yearbook. As a 9th grader Winona was kicked out of Kamehameha for dancing a standing hula.

Reverend Stephen Desha, the Kamehameha Schools’ chaplain, led a once a week non-credit Hawaiian class for junior and senior boys and girls. The student newspaper reported that “[N]ow Kamehameha boys and girls are encouraged to speak and write in their native tongue… The class has been working on the use of every day words and terms. Such things as names of districts and locations are being studied. As time passes, the class is striving to bring the culture of Hawai‘i nearer to the youth of the islands.” Again, this was a once a week, non-credit class.

That same year, 1944, the student paper carried a rather curious message on the subject of hula at Kamehameha. It was from Mary Frances Barnes, the wife of Homer Barnes, Boys’ School principal since 1931. She had learned the ‘ukulele and traditional Hawaiian nose flute, and had studied hula from Winona Beamer’s mother. Aunty Nona would later exclaim: “It just galled me to the quick that she could come and study with my mother and I couldn’t do any of these dances that my mother had taught me!”

When her husband resigned in 1944, Mary Barnes left this parting message in “Ka Mō‘ï”: “I wish I could create in all of you so much respect for this beautiful dance, that you would use all your influence to keep it worthy of the respect it deserves. I wish hulas were danced on every occasion as an inspiration to all who see them.”

It was not to happen legally for another twenty and more years.

In 1946, President Harold Kent assumed the presidency of Kamehameha and in his first public statement offered the following: “It will be my sole purpose to sincerely develop the schools so that they may be of the greatest service to the Hawaiian people through developing in character and leadership an ever-growing number of their youth, and through perpetuating in every wholesome and thorough way the finest aspects of the glorious Hawaiian culture.”

The standing hula did not qualify with Colonel Kent as fine and glorious and wholesome. Kent was the incarnation of the most respectable Protestant Christianity, and the standing hula embodied other Hawaiian things.

In the spring of 1947, Harold Kent established a Hawaiian Culture Committee to study various phases of the culture that might be incorporated into the curriculum. Don Mitchell was appointed head of the committee, which included many cultural luminaries of the day, among them Rev. Stephen Desha, Mrs. Mary Pūku‘i, Miss Margaret Titcomb, Miss Beatrice Mo‘okini, Dr. Kenneth P. Emory, Miss Caroline Curtis, and Mrs. Dorothy Kahananui Gillette.

The decade of the 50s was one of numerous publications—the culture of the written word. The collaboration of Pūku‘i/Curtis produced such titles as “Pīkoi,” “Water of Kāne,” and “Tales of the Menehune.”

From 1951-53 “Ka Mō‘ï” ran a column in Hawaiian, student-authored by Jean Kelly of Ni‘ihau, James Merseberg, William Kaina and David Ka‘upu, at times writing together, at times individually. With the graduation of the “three kahu” in 1951, Jean Kelly continued the series.

Significantly, from 1952 until 1964, Dr. Mitchell designed and taught courses for KS students at the Bishop Museum. The students worked closely with artifacts and became museum guides to thousands of public and private school children who visited the museum each year. This is seen as the most successful collaboration to date between Kamehameha and the museum .

The lessons developed by Dr. Mitchell for the students were first published by KS in 1969 as “Resource Units in Hawaiian Culture.” It remains an important work to this day.

Other powerful—if more covert—Hawaiian lessons were reaching students as well: living, formative lessons that would contribute to the breaking of the kapu on standing hula some ten years later. In the mid-1950s Aunty Nona Beamer began teaching hula classes in the Dorm M laundry room. Standing hula. In violation of KS rules. We’ll come back to this.

The absolute crowning achievement in Hawaiian cultural publications in the decade of the fifties was the appearance in 1957 of the Pūku‘i/Elbert “Hawaiian Dictionary,” the springboard for so much that has happened in Hawaiian language and culture ever since.

In 1961, Hawaiian was added to the list of “foreign” languages available to the students in the two upper schools. “Ka Mō‘ï” of March 10, 1961, mentions 24 students were enrolled the first year and 27 in 1962.

Later that month President Kent noted that “Hawaiian language is now taught in the seventh and eighth grades at the Kamehameha Preparatory Department.” And he added what he called “other tangential uses of Hawaiian at the Schools”:
• “Graces are sung in Hawaiian.
• Hawaiian music is presented by choral groups.
• The deputation teams always read the Scripture in Hawaiian.
• Miscellaneous usages and practices are in effect.”

During this period, Mrs. Dorothy M. Kahananui was asked to prepare teaching materials in Hawaiian. By 1965, a 175-page textbook entitled “E Pāpā‘ōlelo Kākou” was completed. Mrs. Kahananui began teaching Hawaiian language to ninth grade students, the first elective course in what was to be a three-year sequence.

In the years that followed, formal Hawaiian language teaching gained a foothold on the Kapālama campus of the Kamehameha Schools. But this was by no means a widespread, exuberant affirmation of Kamehameha’s Hawaiianess. Sarah Quick Keahi, who taught Hawaiian for 37 years from 1966 to 2003, recalls Kamehameha then:

“When I first came to Kamehameha, Hawaiian was really the orphan of the institution… You should take French or Spanish…the top students didn’t take Hawaiian… And I guess coming from the public school I had this idea that everybody at Kamehameha knew about Hawaiian. And I came here and I thought ‘Wow, that’s not true at all! They don’t know anything!’ There wasn’t anything in Hawaiian studies. Dr. Mitchell’s course was seen as “enrichment,” not academic. And I thought, ‘Wow!’ And so we made this proposal year after year after year. Finally they did a graduate survey and the graduates said that when they went to the mainland, people asked them about Hawai‘i and Hawaiians and they couldn’t answer intelligently. Finally, after community pressure and the graduate survey, it became a reality. Prior to that we had proposed it for our students for seven years in a row.”

By far the most dramatic event of this decade, however, occurred the year before Sarah started teaching when, in 1965, the kapu on standing hula was broken. This is a story of many cultural torches.

Breaking the kapu took a concerted campaign, the determined acts of students, appeals from teachers, comparisons with dance culture worldwide, authoritative testimony from Donald Kilolani Mitchell, and a lobbying campaign at Bishop Estate headquarters spear-headed by Gladys Brandt, principal of KSG.

To trace the beginnings of defiance on this one, as mentioned earlier, we must return to the mid-1950s and Aunty Nona Beamer’s lessons in the laundry room of Dorm M. In interview she recollects:

“…I was half-time for 10 years. There was no Hawaiian Studies department. But the students were asking. And my classroom was in the laundry, in the dorm. With the machines going. You could smell the soap and Clorox. And big pillars in the middle of the classroom, so you kinda had to peer around them to see the students. And then the boys asked if they could come, ‘cause we were the Girls’ School. And I said sure, come on up! So they’d trudge up the hill and only had like ten minutes passing time, so they’d be late getting there, and then have to leave early to go back down.”

A couple of years later, an unsung hero of this story, PE teacher Midge Mossman, began to include hula in her classes. Nona Beamer describes Midge thus in a 2003 interview: “Her enthusiasm was unbounded. And her love…I think her love is just unsurmounted. It really was…No boundaries to her enthusiasm. Her love just surrounded everything she did. She was a remarkable gal.”

And—as a wonderful reminder to us of the power of teaching—both of these young women were speaking strongly to their students about the pride they should feel in being Hawaiian.

When asked in interview if she remembered such conversations with Mrs. Beamer, Vicky Holt-Takamine, class of ’65, exclaimed: “Oh! Very much so! Very much so! I mean she would tell us, ‘You need to be proud of who you are as Hawaiians…We have a very rich culture…We have many traditions. We are a people of, of, of, ’ What did she say? ‘A people of spirit. Of love.’”

Vicky was being influenced as well by another strong source from outside the walls of Kamehameha, a hula studio on Ke‘eaumoku Street where standing hula was taken very seriously. Again Vicky: “Well, when I got to high school…I was a student of Maiki Aiu Lake. And …I had question marks on a lot of things.” Vicky wasn’t the only student who questioned KS policy on hula. Other students who danced “outside” included Kanani Kalama and Louise Beamer, a niece of Aunty Nona.

In an article in “Ka Mō‘ï” dated March 26, 1965, senior Louise Beamer spoke of her love for hula almost flauntingly as she quipped “You name them, I do them!” Because of her skills, Louise was an assistant dance instructor at the Kamehameha Karnival Hawaiian Show that year, scheduled for Friday, April 2.

The Hawaiian show at the old Kekūhaupi‘o hangar was to start at 7:30pm. It was entitled He Inoa No Kalākaua. You will recall that it was Kalākaua who spoke at the school’s dedication, standing next to the anti-hula Sereno Bishop. The article in “Ka Mō‘ï” ends with a cautionary reminder that “all hula will be performed in sitting position.”

It was not to be. Some days earlier, Louise Beamer had performed the song “Kawohikūkapulani,” written by her great grandmother, Aunty Nona’s grandmother. Louise performed it standing in front of students, for which she was firmly chastised. The students were shocked. Angry.

Meanwhile, and backtracking just a bit, behind the scenes that spring, less public calls for change were coming from teachers and administrators in the form of letters to the trustees. In early February, President Bushong wrote, suggesting that the time had come to allow standing hula.

The trustees responded: “Please confer with Miss Nona Beamer, dancing instructor at the schools, determining from her the cultural aspects of the hula which are presently being taught.” The information came back not from Nona but from Don Mitchell. In a letter dated February 16, he summarized the view on this matter from the Bishop Museum: “Knowledgeable staff there,” he noted, “recognized that this form of expression was and still remains a dance of grace, beauty and meaning. The story of Hawai‘i could not be understood without it. Mary Kawena Pūku‘i has said for many years that Kamehameha should teach and perpetuate the very best in traditional hula, including the standing forms. And teach the very best versions.”

The following day, February 16th, 1965, PE teacher Midge Mossman in a three-page, single-spaced, typed memo of her own passionately argued the virtues of standing hula:

“The ancient form of the dance accompanies the chant as the modern interpretative dances accompany the modern Hawaiian melodies. Both are a definite part of our culture. The ancient is not the only hula . . . Both dance forms evolved out of the same culture but at different times and both have equal merit…”

That was an argument from culture. There was another argument. Again, Midge Mossman: “There seems to be a double standard that will be evident this year in our Kamehameha Karnival. The dancers in the Hawaiian Show will not be permitted to do standing hulas, yet the dancers in the Shindig Show will be dancing the Monkey and the rock-and-roll dances in their choreography.”

James Bushong, whose wife was a student of Nona Beamer’s mother, took the broad view. “In Italy, Russia and other countries their national ballet has achieved world acclaim for variety, intricacy and expression of movement. In similar fashion, the traditional hula epitomizes the historic culture of Hawai‘i.”

Kamehameha Karnival April 2, 1965: At the Hawaiian show that evening, students defiantly stood to dance “Kaulana Nā Pua.” thus effectively breaking the 78 year-old kapu on standing hula at Kamehameha. (award winning photo by then KS senior Bruce Lum)

“The Hawaiian Show at the 1965 Karnival. The girls here remain kneeling, in compliance with KS policy. In their final dance, “Kaulana Nā Pua,” they will stand up—a first at Kamehameha”

Newly-formed Hawaiian Ensemble students practice for first Hō‘ike in which standing hula was allowed: Song Contest 1966.

While the adult conversations would continue, the students’ impatience would not wait. The Karnival Show was on Friday, April 2. In a recent interview, Kaho‘onei Panoke, who was very involved in the show, recalls the growing student unrest as that date approached:

“… It was really driven by the students because after what happened to Louise … we decided, ‘No, this cannot go on…We are Hawaiians. Standing hula is part of our culture.’ And then they said, “Well, you can do standing hula but you can only do the motions. You can’t do any body movement to it. And we said, “No, that would be unacceptable.”

As if to heighten the dramatic tension of this historic moment, the students that evening initially complied. Until the last dance that is, which was “Kaulana Nā Pua.” For that they stood.

Vicky Holt-Takamine, who was Karnival Queen, recalls: “We did it consciously. It was a perfect number for that…we didn’t want to sit down and do hula. And I think that Kanani Kalama was one that took the lead on that… saying, “You know, we have to stand up and do this. We just can’t sit down…”

This was a turning point. Huliau. Those students standing tall on stage that evening are for me the many standing torches…Kū ka lau lama!

Emerging out of that 1965 Kamehameha Karnival was the sense in the minds of the students that the stage that evening was the birthplace of the first Hō‘ike. Those dancers would go on in the coming months to form what to this day is called the Hawaiian Ensemble.

The group, which included sophomores, juniors and soon-to-graduate seniors, then began preparing for a trip to Japan. Kalani Cockett, who worked with the Hawai‘i Visitors’ Bureau and had helped out with the Karnival, wanted to take the students on a cultural exchange.

The students practiced several times a week all that spring. Publicly. Right spang in front of Ka‘ahumanu Gym. If there lingered any question in the high school students as to whether standing hula was still not happening on campus, their questions were quickly dissipated by those very public rehearsals. Again, Vicky Holt-Takamine, this time with a kolohe twinkle to her voice:

“We did standing hula! We did Tahitian! We did Maori! We shook our bodies all over campus that summer!”

It was this group, now officially called the Hawaiian Ensemble, which presented the first Hō‘ike during the judges tally at the Song Contest in the spring of 1966. The show included standing hula and was greeted enthusiastically. The classes of ’65, ’66 and ’67 have never quite received the recognition they deserve for helping to change the culture of Kamehameha so profoundly. As for the singing that night, it was a senior sweep!

Meanwhile, rewinding back to the adults and the spring of 1965: President Bushong did not want to have to lobby the trustees. He told Gladys Brandt to do it.

The first one she spoke with was trustee Richard Lyman. He told her to forget about it, which only made her all the more determined to go after the others.

Second was Atherton Richards, son of Theodore Richards, the musical principal of Kamehameha who was in charge of the school

hi Kaohi,

am working on Queen Liliuokalani’s issues…………with others………..could use some help with more people protesting the Depleted Uranium………………

meanwhile many of Queen Liliuokalani’s families exist…………am from two ancestors who fall directly under her as child and hanai child relationship………..premature to let everyone know what’s happening……

the findings of Bernice Pauahi Bishop being hapa-haole, half white also has much ramifications…..

the findings that Prince Kuhio taking an out of court settlement has much ramifications as well……

Oppositions are a must…………..against the Depleted Uranium use in our Hawaiian Islands, against the Akaka Bill, etc.

stepped up research is ongoing…….

maintaining a neutral, non-violent nation………….in alignment with our great great great grandmother Queen Liliuokalani.

aloha nui.

Greetings!

Have just posted the following on Maoliworld.com

There’s much evidence showing corruption of the Kamehameha Schools Bishop Estates/Bernice Pauahi Bishop Estates, Liliuokalani Trust, King Lunalilo Trust, Queen Kapiolani Estates, Queen Emma Trust, criminal claims to the Crown Lands, etc.

Efforts to pass the Akaka Bill continues by Senator Akaka, descendant of documented treasonous person, conspirator of Queen Liliuokalani, the Hawaiian Kingdom and subjects, et. als. whose name was Thomas Akaka.

Congress, along with President Benjamin Harrison did premeditate the criminal assumption of a neutral, non violent nation………..see information at: http://www.theiolani.blogspot.com

or http://www.iolani.wordpress.com

and other articles written on the web.

I, Amelia Gora, have been assigned a Police File and have been sending information your way.

Am still awaiting for the entity State of Hawaii Attorney General who is acting as a Parens Patriae for the Bernice Pauahi Bishop Estates/Kamehameha Schools for an appointment because our great great grandmother and her descendants were provided payments in the Will of Bernice Pauahi, etc.

Sending you information for background purposes and identifying issues, claims that are active.

Subject: Personal Opposition and Hawaiian Kingdom Records No. 2010-1500 Continued Opposition to Depleted Uranium in Hawaii from one of the Landowners, Amelia Gora, a Royal person

A Personal Opposition with Land Ownership Interests and Oppositions from the Acting Liaison of Foreign Affairs, the Royal Families House of Nobles of the Hawaiian Kingdom (which did go “under ground” and exists)

Greetings,

On October 27, 2009, a Certificate applied for from the Nuclear Regulatory Commission site was approved through the Filing Help Desk – Josh Phone (266) 672-7640.

I have continued to Oppose Depleted Uranium and documented Oppositions countless time to you an agency which is Not Granted the Opportunity to Contaminate our families Private Properties, additionally it is purposeful that Opposition continue and remain on record due to the disregard of true Land Owners, and the fact that we are interested in maintaining the health, safety of all in the Hawaiian Islands/archipelago, even includes foreign citizens such as Americans and other foreigners.

Much research has been done, which shows that the Crown Lands Owners includes Kamehameha III – Kauikeouli’s adopted children are his heirs, the successors heirs are also part of my/our bloodlines.

See reference(s) below.

After intense, detailed history research, genealogy research, legal research, our Private Properties have been criminally claimed by Pirates, treasonous persons, conspirators against the Hawaiian Kingdom of whom descendants, Sovereigns, directly connected to the ownership of these Crown Lands exist. I, Amelia Gora, am one of the owners, and deny any relationship/blood lines of Jew Linda Lingle, “Joe Jap” Daniel Inouye, and have documented Senator Daniel Akaka as a direct descendant of Thomas Akaka who assisted in the dethronement of our Queen in 1893, etc.

The Premeditation, Piracies by the U.S., England, and the bankers is hereby documented.

The ownership of the Crown Lands of which the intended use of Depleted Uranium is Not Approved. Eviction notices for the military has been given to remove themselves from Makua, Schofield, Pohakuloa, is a real issue at hand.

Depleted Uranium is the cause of many people dying from cancers, DNA mutations, diabetes, etc. See links below.

$500 Trillion Dollars a year in gold coins for rents and leases retroactive since 1893 is also maintained, and the U.S., England, and the Morgan bankers/International bankers/Bank of England has been billed and this is a reminder of rents, leases owed to Kamehameha’s, Kamehameha III’s families, et. als.

Other Land Holdings being affected by Depleted Uranium/DU

And what of the other landowners such as the Kamehameha Schools Bishop Estates who have assumed interest as if it was entirely theirs? Trustees, by the way, are not related to us, and if they claim to be, it can be proven that they descend from conspirators, treasonous persons, pirates documented.

I, Amelia Gora, am one of the descendants of Bernice Pauahi’s cousin named Kalola who has interest in the the KSBE Trust which began in 1884, or pre-dethronement of Queen Liliuokalani.

I, Amelia Gora, also descends from families who are on the Will of Bernice Pauahi, who by the way has been found to have been half white, which means that I as one of the representatives of our family(ies) and descending from Kalola am one of the heirs of Bernice Pauahi’s Hawaiian father and that part of the lands are also claimed.

I, Amelia Gora, descends from Kaaumoana, one of the heirs in the Bernice Pauahi Will who also was an adopted daughter of Kaeha/Kamakaeha/Makaeha/Liliuokalani and finally known as Queen Liliuokalani. Kaaumoana and her descendants are the true Trustees of the Liliuokalani Trust/Queen Liliuokalani Trust which is currently held by thieves, scoundrels, criminal activists, perpetuating a lie and disregarding Queen Liliuokalani’s Will which documents that she did not sign a Trust Deed with Samuel Damon, et. als.

I, Amelia Gora, descend from Isaac Davis, John Young, British persons who married into the chiefly lines of Kamehameha and have the blood of his brothers and sisters, and who are the true owners of Pearl Harbor which the U.S. military criminally assumes – based on a fraud deed of 1876, criminally pours hundreds of thousands of gallons of nuclear waste into the Hawaiian archipelago.

To put it simply, I continue to Oppose all use of Depleted Uranium/DU on all of our Private Properties, and additionally, as one of our Royal Families House of Nobles I hereby add Opposition to support support the Private Property Claims as well, and maintain Opposition in behalf of our families, kanaka maoli, foreigners including Americans, and others living, residing, visiting the Hawaiian Kingdom (which did go “under ground” yet exists), a neutral, non violent, friendly nation in the middle of the Pacific Ocean being contaminated by a belligerent occupier, the U.S., a “colony of the Crown” of England, etc.

I continue to Oppose all use of Depleted Uranium/DU as one of the true trustees/acting trustees of Liliuokalani Trust/Queen Liliuokalani’s Trust, etc.

Opposing Depleted Uranium through genealogies, history revisited, legally and documenting genocide, etc.,

Sincerely,

Amelia Gora, a Royal person and Acting Liaison
of Foreign Affairs, a Representative of the Royal
Families House of Nobles, Hawaiian Kingdom

from Kaohi/Luwella Leonardi:

I’m getting tired of arguing the same argument. The military are applying for a permit to posses Depleted Uranium. To continue the use off in there live fireing at Makua and Schofield. There is no such thing as clean up!! Wake up- Kanaka! They has to be someone out there that know how to keep the Pacific Nuclear Free!!

I am tired of arguing or even hearing some asshole tell me to my face “Military needs to clean up their nuclear mess in the Pacific” how studpid one can get. Take time out and research ‘waste streaming’ there is no such thing as cleaning up nuclear waste. Are we all that stupid! Na Kanaka if the military is granted a License to posses and use Depleted Uranium in the Pacific, they plan to send the first Nuclear bomb from their arsenal to North Korea and Iran.

There is no Treaty Ban On Nuclear it expired! If these signatures are not on paper by April 10, 2010 and agreed upon we are in extreme danger. The U.S. Congress will not convene until 2011 the treaty will not appear until Congress and Russia’s Duma sign the agreement

Small peepee, locker peepee, hurt me..hurt me.. this is not a sports game this is real!!! This is not baseball, nor is this football practice–game over is permanent. We can’t go to the parking lot get in our cars and drive home and have cocoa and crakers and kiss our children goodnight. Once that stupid nuclear arsenal leave Hawaii, or Guam –shit’s going to hit our atmosphere. One that we cannot live in and have happy happy at the beach as once we know.

Stop the bombing and feel Nuclear Free Pacific today! Then take your position to the streets! If not be prepared to die! Bottom Line. Kaohi

Aloha Amelia,

Thanks for bringing this back up got diverted in local objectivity/abstract issues.

In 2001, I was contacted first by the Royal Order than by a women that just came from a conference. She and I went to Women’s Center to xerox the recent published book..I just found it two days ago!!! in my messy files. That night I attended a Waianae military meeting with the information/hard copy back in 2001. ISBN4-88517-301-9 C0036
“The Chugoku Shimbun” story and Photos by Alira Tashiro, Translation by Transnet Forward by Leuren Moret President, Scientists for Indigenous People. 2001
Here is the Foreword:

Foreword
I met Akira Tashiro last summer in Hiroshima, when I was invited by Gensuikin to speak about Yucca Mountain and high-level nuclear waste at the Plenary Session of the 2000 World Conference Against Atomic & Hydrogen bombs. The citizens of Hiroshima and Nagasaki live with the aftermath of the horrific power and annihilation of nuclear bombs dropped on a civilian population and the extreme cruelty of the lifelong effects of exposure to flash external gamma rays and internal low-level radiation from fallout. This reality has changed the live of all those who have visited Hiroshima and Nagasaki and learned not only about the hibakusha (survivors) of japan, but of those around the world in Kazakhstan, the Pacific Islanders, and the Western United States. Radiation respects no borders. It is a slow, silent global mutilator of all life.
In the 197′s I worked as an earth scientist at the Lawrence Berkeley Lab. There the transuranium elements were discovered for the bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945, and the use of depleted uranium (DU) on the battlefield was first discussed. Later I worked at the Lawrence Livermore Lab, where the design of nuclear weapons continues. Radiation and nuclear weapons continues. Radiation and nuclear weapons are seldom mentioned in a climate of secrecy and denial. Many scientists work in isolation and are only dimly aware of the larger project.
In the moment that I stood in the Hiroshima Peace Museum on the anniversary of the bombing looking up at “Little Boy,” I was overwhelmed as a scientist. I realized that engineering and technology had built devices, through the misapplication of science, that could destroy all life on Earth. I saw photos of women with vacant stares nursing dead babies. As a mother and giver of life I wondered how, without conscience, man could destroy 4.5 billion years of life evolving on this Earth. The unbelievably dangerous powers of nuclear weapons have been developed by divorcing science from ethics, a Western phenomenon.
The Chugoku Shimbun, Hiroshima’s newspaper, has published two award-winning series on exposure to radiation. The first book, EXPOSURE: Victims of Radiation Speak Out, is a powerful message about the detrimental effects that radioactive substances from nuclear testing and “peaceful uses” of nuclear energy have had on people and the environment. In this second book, Discounted Casualties, personal stories about DU reveal the unbelievable immorality and cruelty of this new radioactive weapon.
Radioactive waste from nuclear weapons development, mixed with highlevel waste from nuclear reactors, becomes a lethal cocktail in DU ammunition. In recent reports, the US Department of Energy has admitted that military reactor waste has been mixed with DU. The waste contains plutonium, uranium-236, neptunium and other isotopes thousands of times more radioactive than DU. Disposing of dangerous waste at a profit benefits US government agencies and the military industrial complex, while passing the liability for disposal and the biological and environmental damage to citizens around the world.
Tungsten is a biologically and environmentally safer alternative with greater density and penetrating power. DU bullets are pyrophoric and ignite on impact, producing a smoke that poisons life and travels great distances. The bullet fragments and dust left in the bodies of soldiers cause extended suffering, and cruel and inhumane deaths years after the war has ended. DU is radioactive. It is a toxic metal, and the toxicity is greatly increased when combined with chemicals. It disproportionately affects women and children.
DU munitions are illegal under international human rights and humanitarian law. Nevertheless, the US, the self-proclaimed “International Champion of Human Rights,” has used this inhumane weapon on the battlefield, exposing its own soldiers, its allies, civilian populations, and future generations. Du testing in the US, continues to expose unsuspecting citizens and the environment. Pilots at Fallon Naval Air Station in Nevada trained on nearby bombing and gunnery ranges for the Gulf War. Now, the “don’t look, don’t find policy” of the military is concealing the cause of a recent leukemia cluster among children in Fallon. Overseas, the use of radioactive trash in weapons has turned Gulf countries, the Balkans, Viegues Island, and Okinawa into dumpsites for the US government and the radiation industry. A single microscopic particle can cause a lethal disease. DU will continue to poison life from the dust and soils of the battlefields and testing grounds. In ten half-lives, or 45 billion years, the radioactivity will become an insignificant amount.
Which is worse, flash annihilation by nuclear explosions, or slow mutilation from low-level radiation, the result of radioactive contamination of the air, water and earth essential to life? Globally, we have been deceived about the health effects of radiation by bureaucratized governments informed by the military industrial complex and scientific power. In the past half-century, 1.3 billion people have been killed maimed, and diseased by nuclear weapons and nuclear power. Millions more will be killed, maimed and diseased unless the citizens of the world demand an end to the proliferation of nuclear weapons, nuclear power, nuclear waste, and the new radiological weapons.
As the bell tolls, we must honor and respect the hibakusha around the world, who are living reminders that we are pulling the rope of our own death knell. Let us thank the citizens of Japan. The Chugoku Shimbun, and Akira Tashiro, for making us aware of the most important issue of this century. And thanks to the veterans, whose stories make it clear that democracies, as well as living bodies, can develop malignancies.

I’m so heartbroken because Niihau has a super high rate of diabetes and we know why? If only we did not have a ‘war on drugs’ then Dr. Shintani could be giving his lectures alongside the successful “Waianae Diet”.

But, back to my point. Right offshore near Niihau their is a drift zone and the military and their little boy club countries dump nuclear waste into that drift zone. I learned this in the late 70s when the Nuclear Free Pacific was at it’s high.

As Leuren says, “DU causes diabetes”

My email was compromised and google won’t give it back.

It’s sad that many sit on the fence as silent supporters and watch from the sidelines without being active. For some it’s a threat to the jobs they hold; much like the situation after the U.S. invasion who set up their puppet government under belligerent occupation. Then we have the case of some that maintain a defeatist attitude and hopelessness that feel whatever they do, the U.S. and its citizens will just do as they please no matter what we say.

Sometimes we dominate the discussions that could deter others from participating. The problem is finding that happy medium that encourage others to participate. We, “old-timers”, need to find ways to encourage others to give input without they feeling disenfranchised and shut-out. We need to work on outreach to have them participating with out feeling intimidated. Any ideas?

I really appreciate all who have been attempting to educate, encourage activism, and make people aware of the issues , especially those that directly affect us. I feel we need to attack issues separately to discus rather than mix them up in one discussion or forum which might distract from the main issue. Sometimes it can be overwhelming for the neophytes to join in who may find it intimidating.

For me, I have no problem dealing with the multi-layered issues that interweave; but those just entering this vibrant discussion or forum may be reluctant in responding and don’t know how to break in or are too shy. How can we create an interest for them to respond and prod them to participate?

hi Tane,

Some call these important finds “revisionist history” and they love it……….

Some call it hidden information and they love it………….

Some/Most get somewhat angry due to the lies, propaganda, indoctrination……and love the “new” info…….

The bottom line is that the premeditation by treasonous persons/pirates supported by the U.S. are issues that results in the knowledge that kanaka maoli/aboriginal Hawaiians still own their ancestral lands………..the intent is for everyone to copy, print and keep the documents with their land documents, etc.

A significant number of Hawaiians are returning to their ancestral lands or being given the support thru protective orders, documents, papers to protect our families properties, etc.

Perhaps the following article will make many understand where I’m coming from as well……..this is just one of the articles that have really pissed me off in the past………….and could probably be used for discussion purposes as well…………….aloha.

I name this article “ANIMOSITIES” — read about how Sereno Bishop wrote that those who did hula and kahuna were “venomous reptiles who need to be exterminated”…………pissed me off…does it piss you off too? issues of genocide here, especially since Sereno Bishop was raised by Amamalua and her husband Kaleikini, the families of the Makekau’s, the Kawananakoa’s, et. als.

Suppression of Hawaiian Culture at Kamehameha Schools
Author:
Kawika Eyre
Month:
01
Year:
2004

Kāwika Eyre teaches Hawaiian language at Kamehameha Schools Kapālama campus high school. For the past two years he has been on reassignment conducting an oral history project relating to the KS controversy of the 1990s. Some 230 interviews are now stored in the KS Archives, covering all aspects of those times. Kāwika is a member of the Hawaiian Cultural Center Project Committee and a representative of Nā Kumu o Kamehameha. The following article is a speech Eyre gave at a retreat for members of Hui Ho‘ohawai‘i in January of 2004.

Aloha pumehana kākou e nā hoa makamaka o Kamehameha.

The word we are using for this conference, huliau, refers to a turning point, a time of change. Interestingly, another meaning of huliau is to think of the past, to recall what has happened. Coincidental to our topic this evening, Mrs. Pūku‘i gives the following example in the “Hawaiian Dictionary.” “Ua ‘ākoakoa mākou no ka huliau ‘ana.” We are gathered together to recall the past.

I have been asked by the HCCP committee to be our guide on this journey, this huliau ‘ana, that we may know something of whom we have been as we seek a path into our future. Several people have helped me as readers. Their suggestions and enthusiasm have been invaluable. Thank you Randie Fong, Janet Zisk, Ke‘ala Kwan, Nona Beamer and Dale Noble.

Much of the material I will present tonight was gathered during my recent two-year reassignment—as requested by Nā Kumu o Kamehameha and supported in part by a grant from the Parrent Fund. I was asked to interview people and write about the controversy of the mid-to-late 90s. Some of the material that follows is excerpted directly from a manuscript in progress. Much of it traces to archival sources. I am indebted to George Kanahele, Loring Hudson, the staff of KS publications over the years, and others. As they all have affirmed by their work, in our effort to understand ourselves, we must look to our past. Huliau.

In most ways our past begins with Pauahi. Surely the most quoted passage of Pauahi’s Will reads:

“I desire my trustees to provide first and chiefly a good education in the common English branches, and also instruction in morals and in such useful knowledge as may tend to make good and industrious men and women…”

Many have wondered and some have spoken much about what Pauahi may have meant by her words, “providing a good education in the common English branches.”

In Pauahi’s final years of life, 150 or 57% of the schools in Hawai‘i were conducted completely in Hawaiian, primarily using non-Hawaiian content from the curriculum of the common English school. Those of us working in Hawaiian have all studied the anatomy books, the math books, the geography books of this period, most—if not all—taken from the “common English branches” of the day and translated into Hawaiian. But by content, it was “common English branches.”

We might remind ourselves as well of Pauahi’s close relationship to her cousin Princess Ruth Ke‘elikōlani, a physically stern but warm-hearted woman, now widely admired for her staunch, steadfast support of Hawaiian language and culture. The few samples we have of Pauahi’s handwritten Hawaiian come from her letters to Ruth, who refused to use English.

Gladys Brandt: “My father and mother, like virtually all Hawaiians at that time, wanted their children to succeed, and they believed that to do so required their children to adopt Western ways. Unfortunately, they thought this was possible only by leaving behind the Hawaiian language and culture. If they were alive today, they would feel differently.”

To be sure, in many native families of that time, there was a growing recognition, resignation perhaps, that English was a necessary condition for success in a changing Hawaiian world. In September of 2002, the summer before her death, Gladys Brandt described the attitude of her parents some twenty years after the founding of the Schools: “My father and mother, like virtually all Hawaiians at that time, wanted their children to succeed, and they believed that to do so required their children to adopt Western ways. Unfortunately, they thought this was possible only by leaving behind the Hawaiian language and culture. If they were alive today, they would feel differently.”

And yet Pauahi, in her day, was praised as a woman who took the best of both worlds, a woman of the highest Hawaiian stature, a woman quite perfectly bi-lingual and bi-cultural.

What I am getting at here is that I find it very difficult to accept the notion that Pauahi would have looked on in any way approvingly at what was happening to Hawaiian language and culture at Kamehameha in those first years of her schools. That violence against the Hawaiian world strikes us today as unpardonable. Yet both Pauahi and the will remain silent on these matters: she left no guidelines for the fledgling school. She died before she could know.

Let’s go back in time to those first days at Kamehameha.

On November 4, 1887, King Kalākaua, then the embodiment of Hawaiian cultural revitalization—not the least hula—spoke to the students in Hawaiian at the dedication of Kamehameha School for Boys.

Standing near him and giving the formal prayer that day was Reverend Sereno E. Bishop, no relation to Charles Bishop, but the annexationist son of a missionary. Sereno Bishop was a haole who could speak Hawaiian. He prayed for the Kamehameha boys in their language. In English, whenever the subject of hula came up—and Bishop brought it up often in his Christian newspaper “The Friend”—he ranted.

So from the very start, standing side by side at that opening ceremony, were profoundly opposing views of something so quintessentially Hawaiian as the hula. Kalākaua would celebrate hula; Sereno Bishop would denigrate hula. Confusion, conflict of cultural identity from day one at Kamehameha School. And the issue of hula will run like a jolting live wire through the Kamehameha story.

Kalākaua and the Rev. Bishop stood that day at Kaiwi‘ula. Today, as we know, the Bishop Museum is located on this site. The name Kaiwi‘ula, which translates as “the red bone,” refers to a battle fought on these fields long, long ago.

In the early years of Kamehameha Schools, another battle was to be fought at this site, this one a quiet clash of cultures where teachers and staff of the young school purposely and relentlessly sought to stamp out the native language and all aspects of Hawaiian ways.

The first principal at Kamehameha was a man named William Oleson. The Reverend Oleson was a fervid democrat with no time for monarchies, and he had a particularly low opinion of Kalākaua as a king, saying that he ruled by bribery, corruption, lasciviousness, sorcery and tyranny. In the same year that Oleson took charge at Kamehameha, 1887, he was a member of a haole committee that forced a rewritten constitution on Kalākaua, sharply limiting the king’s power. This was the Bayonet Constitution.

One of the first orders William Oleson gave at Kamehameha was to ban the Hawaiian language. English was the only language accepted for the work time and play time of Pauahi’s school. Hawaiian was forbidden in the classroom and on the playing fields, and the boys were punished if they were heard speaking the language of their families. This was in the late 1880s and early 90s, which means that Hawaiian was banned at Kamehameha well before it was officially outlawed at Hawai‘i’s public and private schools in 1896, three years after the overthrow.

“…teachers and staff of the young school purposely and relentlessly sought to stamp out the native language and all aspects of Hawaiian ways.”

The anti-Hawaiian campaign at Kaiwi‘ula was relentless. Non-stop. For decades. Every teacher was to be a teacher of English. Every incentive was offered, every tactic tried: slogans, “Better English Weeks,” encouragement to sit in the library and read books, praise and prizes for pronunciation, speech contests, oratory at assemblies, discussion groups, debating societies, drama clubs, off-campus passes, free periods, an “English holiday” for anyone not caught talking “native” for a month.

Within three years, student compliance was showing in school statistics. The October 1890 issue of the KS publication “Handicraft” reported: “Thus far the average number of those who have earned the Holiday has been sixty-five percent of the number enrolled.”

In 1894, William Oleson co-wrote a book with a title that said much about this man who had led Kamehameha Schools. Its title: “Picturesque Hawai‘i: A Charming Description of Her Unique History, Strange People, Exquisite Climate, Wondrous Volcanoes, Luxurious Productions, Beautiful Cities, Corrupt Monarchy, Recent Revolution and Provisional Government.” His co-author was James L. Stevens, United States minister to Hawai‘i in 1893, who had ordered American troops ashore, effectively guaranteeing the overthrow of the monarchy. Stevens wanted nothing more or less than annexation, and Oleson was with him all the way.

Let us be clear: The boys under Oleson at Kamehameha were not American annexationists. They were Hawaiians, and they were instinctive royalists, reverential to their ali‘i nui. In the first years of the school, which were the last years of the monarchy, King Kalākaua paid a visit to a classroom. The boys stood of their own accord and sang “Hawai‘i Pono‘ï.” When Queen Lili‘uokalani visited and drank coffee, no one would touch her cup afterwards; it was sacred to the ali‘i, kapu.

As George Kanahele relates, following the 1893 overthrow of the kingdom, the boys voted with their feet against this school that was run by annexationists. So many boys left and did not come back that enrollment went down by almost half and stayed down for the next two years.

Newly appointed principal Theodore Richards replaced William Oleson. Richards’ approach to resolving the enrollment crisis was to depoliticize and Hawaiianize the school. He had a good feel for working with Kamehameha boys, and he had a great appreciation of Hawaiian music and language. He put Hawaiian songs on the glee club program alongside Western classical songs, to great success in performance.

That was really the only time in the first decades at Kamehameha when the Hawaiian language was given fuller voice. That, and in chapel at Kaumakapili Church, where the “Lord’s Prayer” was sung in Hawaiian. Other prayers and sermons also were in “native.”

Hawaiian music flourished at Kamehameha. Hawaiian dance did not. Reverend Sereno Bishop, who had given the prayer at the opening of the boys’ school, maintained his relationship with Kamehameha as well as his strong anti-hula convictions. The dance, he wrote, was “one of the foul florescenses” on the “great poison tree of idolatry.” Bishop said hula corroded Hawaiians—and labeled it moral leprosy. This attitude, though more mildly expressed, endured until 1965.

No right-minded principal at Kamehameha would want foul florescence and moral leprosy on his campus. No right-minded Bishop Estate trustee would want it on estate lands either. There were early leases that banned hula along with liquor. And among students it was rumored that language in Pauahi’s will expressly forbade hula. Not true. Hawaiian was not heard in the halls of Kamehameha and, increasingly, Hawaiian students at Kamehameha could no longer hear Hawaiian within themselves: The “Handicraft” issue of March, 1897 carried the following—to us—somber reflection:

Kamehameha Schools 1893: Enrollments dropped by almost half as the boys voted with their feet against this school run by annexationists.

“Five years ago the Rev. Sereno Bishop taught a class of Kamehameha boys in the Kaumakapili Sunday School. Then it was necessary for him to employ his excellent knowledge of the native tongue to make himself understood. After this interval, in which he has seen little of the boys, he comes back to preach to them and naturally he chooses the Hawaiian language in which to address them, and for the same reasons as before. It transpired that a census taken after the sermon disclosed the fact that several had difficulty in understanding him, and eleven boys from the Manual, twenty-one from the Preparatory and twenty-one from the Girls’ School did not understand Hawaiian at all.”

We should not be surprised by the success of Kamehameha at dismembering Hawaiian. Early Kamehameha was essentially an English immersion school. As our friends from the Pūnana Leo movement have so aptly demonstrated, immersion is the most powerful of language pedagogies. Since most of the students were boarders, the influence of the Hawaiian home was thoroughly lessened and the opportunity to immerse students in English optimal. Though the prohibition against Hawaiian was in place for many years to come, its existence grew increasingly irrelevant as the language vanished in the children.

But—and perhaps this reflects something of that same confusion we noted from day one at Kamehameha regarding attitudes towards hula—though Hawaiian language was officially banned at Kamehameha, it was never completely rejected. Indeed a cynic—or a careful historian—might detect an increase in the lip-service paid “things Hawaiian” at a rate roughly equivalent to the actual decrease in authentic “Hawaiian things” at Kamehameha. The word tokenism creeps into our vocabulary when speaking of these years.

By 1900, for example, students were permitted, even encouraged to participate in non-and extra-curricular opportunities to learn and practice their native heritage. Kamehameha School for Girl’s students took short, off-campus excursions to the surrounding mountains where they sang Hawaiian songs and danced hula, though in sitting position we may presume. The school newspaper of the time, “The Blue and White,” often had articles, in Hawaiian occasionally, highlighting or explaining Hawaiian music and legends. Students from the boys’ and girls’ schools built and entered a float depicting kapa making in the fifth annual Floral Parade of Honolulu. They won the grand prize for Best Decorated Float.

In KS music classes, Hawaiian songs were taught alongside American and European compositions. Well-known composer and alumnus, Charles E. King, taught music at the schools from 1900 through 1902. In his teaching, he placed special emphasis on Hawaiian songs and melodies. Hawaiian mele were practiced and performed for the annual Founder’s Day.

Guest speakers (usually not Hawaiian) addressed the students, encouraging them to practice their culture and language.

For example, on March 22, 1902, the “Blue and White” reported: “On Friday evening Mr. Frank Archer of Pearl City delivered a fine address to the girls in Hawaiian. His subject was ‘Children, Obey Your Parents!’ His points were beautifully expressed and held the attention of every pupil.”

A year later “The Blue and White” reported that “On Feb. 28, 1903, a missionary meeting, conducted by Rev. O. Gulick was held in our Assembly Hall. He told us of the missionary work that is being done among the Japanese on these Islands and also about some of the customs and characteristics of the Japanese. He spoke first in English and, at the close, in Hawaiian. He reminded us of the beauty of the Hawaiian language and that we must not forget our mother tongue.”

Reverend Gulick, in 1908, again spoke to the first grade students at the girls’ school. He closed once again by reminding the children of the beauty of the Hawaiian language, and that they must not forget their mother tongue.

The comment to me almost gratuitously belies the horrific reality of the context of the day. In 1908, all around Hawai‘i, including Kamehameha, first graders were being whacked, yelled at and kept after school for speaking their native tongue in the classroom and on the playground.

The mixture of messages is mind-boggling to us: don’t forget your mother tongue and for sure don’t you dare speak it while at Kamehameha! And we know from kūpuna that the slow pounding in of the unworthiness of Hawaiianess was soul-wrenching for Hawaiian youth.

One kupuna and keiki of those days, Gladys Brandt, in interview late in life, remembered bitterly the sense of shame she felt at being Hawaiian. She was born in 1906 to David Kanuha, who was the tailor at the Boys’ School, and Esther Staines, who was in the first KSG graduating class. As a young girl observing the students, Gladys noticed that they were using lemon juice to rub out the stains from their white dresses, the uniform of their day. The impressionable Gladys sneaked a couple of lemons and, in her hiding place, rubbed the juice hard into her skin. To lighten it. To whiten it. Her shame was not just skin deep. It dug bone deep. It dug down Hawaiian soul deep.

In the early 1920s, the advent of Song Contest provided two or more Hawaiian songs per student per year. We don’t have statistics on this, but we think that very few students by now had even at best more than a meager understanding of their native language. Thus begins a long tradition at Kamehameha of native children singing beautiful Hawaiian songs of which they have little or no understanding. A tradition that extends through most of the schooling years of those seated here tonight, and, to a certain extent, continues today.

Publicly, attitudes toward Hawaiian were often tolerant: one-time principal and teacher at Kamehameha School for Boys, Uldrick Thompson, in a 1920-campus presentation, reminded the students of the beauty and intelligence of the Hawaiian language, culture, and people.

“Hawaiian language was allowed only in the laundry room on laundry days at Kamehameha School for Girls.”

Privately, back in the dorms, attitudes were hardly so upbeat: Zena Schuman in interview some ten years ago, described how Hawaiian language was allowed only in the laundry room on laundry days at KSG. She also described how, on Saturday evenings, having posted lookouts down the hallways and near the front steps, the young women would line up on the beautiful double-curved stairway of the old KSG residence at Kaiwi‘ula. The coast clear, they would whisper their songs and dance gently as they stood on the dark wood stairs.

But there was to be change. In 1924 Lydia K. Aholo, hānai daughter of Lili‘uokalani, graduate of Kamehameha School for Girls and Oberlin College, became the first formal instructor of Hawaiian language at Kamehameha Schools. A torch is lit in a culturally darkened school!

This 1924-25 school year course in Hawaiian was compulsory for all seniors. Students received three hours of Hawaiian language instruction a week, using as textbooks the Hawaiian translation of the Bible and the “Life of Lincoln.” The student paper, “Ka Mō‘ï,” recognized this course as one of the highlights of the year.

However, this first attempt at formal teaching of Hawaiian language lasted only that one year.

In a letter dated April 14, 1978, Frank Midkiff, KS president and later trustee, reminisced: “In the early 1920s, I thought it would be good to help our young people learn Hawaiian. So we got the trustees to make Hawaiian language a required course. The students were very interested in it and happy. But soon several parents came in and objected. ‘Why do you teach our children Hawaiian? We can do that ourselves. Before, here, our children were punished if they spoke Hawaiian. They were required to speak English. That is what they need. Punahou, St. Louis, the public schools don’t teach Hawaiian. You should teach them Latin or French or German. The University of Hawai‘i and other colleges won’t give them credit for studying Hawaiian … to enter or for graduation.’

Midkiff continues: “I hated to give up what I knew was good for them. I took it to the trustees. The parents had talked to the trustees before me. The trustees said, ‘Well, let’s make it elective. Maybe that will be acceptable.’ But before long, after it was made elective, several gave it up and before long the courses had to be withdrawn. All followed the parents‘ inclination and the teaching of Hawaiian language and culture was given up for that time being.”

But Midkiff, a speaker of Hawaiian, did not give up. Later that year, he and Dr. John H. Wise, a professor of Hawaiian language at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa, wrote and published a Hawaiian language textbook, “A First Course in Hawaiian Language.”

Nor, it seems, did the students give up on wanting more Hawaiian. This quote is from the KS Archives Memory Book Vol. V 1924-27, but without specific date: “A regular meeting of the combined student councils of the Kamehameha schools was held to discuss the question ‘What should be added or dropped from the present course of study? Lawrence Chang spoke on behalf of the tenth grade boys. He suggested a special course in the Hawaiian language. Abigail Ka‘aloa expressed that the tenth grade girls also desired a special course in Hawaiian…”

One year later, and two years after the first Hawaiian language course was dropped, John Wise was hired and Hawaiian was reinstated in the curriculum, using the Midkiff/Wise textbook. Another cultural torch is lit at Kamehameha.

While Hawaiian language from this date on seems to be finding a modest place in the KS curriculum, hula definitely is not.

In 1929, according to Kanahele, a group of alumni held a fundraiser on campus. For scholarships. The hula was danced. Twice. It was for a good cause. But the principals of the girls’ school and the preparatory school, Maude Schaeffer and Maude Post, were outraged and agitated. They went to the trustees, saying that “dances of this nature tended to neutralize the strenuous efforts made by the teaching force to obliterate certain undesirable racial tendencies in the students.” The trustees agreed that a strict watch should be maintained to see that nothing further of this kind was permitted on campus or at affairs with which the schools were in any way connected.

The young ‘Iolani Luahine, enrolled at Kamehameha during these years, was withdrawn when her aunty and kumu hula Keahi Luahine became aware of the missionary attitudes against hula on campus. We have no date on this but ‘Iolani did graduate from St. Andrew’s Priory with the class of 1935.

Several years ago Papa Henry ‘Auwae met with our students and bitterly reminisced over the fact that he, too, had to leave Kamehameha about this time. Thrown out for repeatedly speaking Hawaiian.

In 1930, Dr. Donald Mitchell from Great Bend, Kansas, joined the staff as an instructor of English.

Dr. Mitchell started a club for Kamehameha boys in 1931 that allowed them to study and practice Hawaiian cultural traditions. Hui ‘Ōiwi, regularly met to learn and demonstrate Hawaiian cultural practices, especially games. From 1930 until the 1960s, the yearbooks of the Schools often published pictures of the club’s activities, most often showing handsome, brown boys in malo, demonstrating traditional Hawaiian games. Membership in the club was by invitation only. Years later, 1941 graduate Roy Benham noted the popularity of the club:

“Oh yeah, everybody wanted to join…it was a good club. I teased Don about that when I went back to teach. He was still there. I said, Don, the only reason you didn’t select me for Hui ‘Ōiwi was that my ‘okole was too white. You know it just seemed to me that you were selecting the real Hawaiian looking ones.”

Hui ‘Ōiwi, 1941: “Oh yeah, everybody wanted to join. It was a real good club.” (Roy Benham)

In the spring of 1931, as part of a new plan for education, Dr. Homer F. Barnes, recently appointed principal of the School for Boys, dropped the Hawaiian language class from the curriculum. In an undated newspaper article from that period, Dr. Barnes offers forth the reason for the change as being a great opportunity for higher scholarship and adjustment of teaching loads.

Immediately after this announcement, the staff at the Bernice Pauahi Bishop Museum arranged for Kamehameha Schools’ students to take Hawaiian culture classes at the museum in place of the dropped language classes. Lectures were initially conducted for seniors on a weekly basis, later to be published by the KS Press in 1933 in a 300-page book entitled “Ancient Hawaiian Civilization.”

Sometime in 1935, several seventh grade girls approached classmate Winona Beamer—already a young cultural torch to her friends—and asked her to help them learn the renowned chants and songs of the Beamer family. Hui Kumulipo, the girls’ club for Hawaiian culture, was born.

Hui Kumulipo came together with Hui ‘Ōiwi a few times a year for joint Hawaiian cultural activities, the most anticipated of these being the annual May lū‘au, prepared by the boys and girls in the traditional manner.

During the coming years when Hawaiian language classes started, stopped, and started again, the Hawaiian clubs of Kamehameha Schools were the only venue for the recognition, encouragement and practice of Hawaiian knowledge.

At one such club-sponsored occasion, Mary Kawena Pūku‘i brought her hānai daughter Pat Bacon up to campus for a KSG assembly and the beautiful girl did a standing hula. Winona Beamer, chafing as she must that Kamehameha girls could not stand and dance but only watch, was furious at what she saw rightly as administrative duplicity. Much to the astonishment of her classmates, Winona stood up and stomped out of the assembly.

Hui Kumulipo, the girls’ Hawaiian club, was initiated in 1935 by Winona Beamer and her 7th grade classmates.

Nona was not your everyday, docile student. In 1937, as a 9th grader she was kicked out of Kamehameha, charged with doing a standing hula. The occasion was the “Trustees’ Tea” held on a Friday afternoon in the area known as “The Pink Garden.” The chant was the “Oli Aloha.” It was this chant that welcomed you here this evening. Winona had known it from her earliest years.

As she walked in, chanting for the trustees that afternoon, Winona’s hand gestures and body movements slipped ever so slightly away from her. Musical as she was, she became one with her chant. When she finished, principal Maude Schaeffer stood up, strode over to her, and announced: “Winona! You may pack your bags!” Winona, had crossed the line and violated the ban on standing hula at Kamehameha.

In a interview in 2003, Aunty Nona described how incensed she was: “I carried my bag all the way down to the gate and I was fuming! Just fuming!” Over that weekend Maude Schaeffer apparently had second thoughts. Winona was reinstated the following week.

During the war years, “Ka Mō‘ï” ran columns on Hawaiian language entitled “Nā Ha‘awina Hawai‘i.” These included glossary and 10 or more sample sentences listed in both Hawaiian and English. A September 1943 lesson is prefaced: “The Hui ‘Ōiwi is sponsoring this column for the third year with the hope that the Kamehameha students will learn more of the language of their ancestors through these simple, practical lessons. A sincere ‘Mahalo nui’ to Mrs. Mary Kawena Pūku‘i of the Bishop Museum for her invaluable aid.”

Conversational Hawaiian was introduced in the elementary and intermediate divisions in 1944. Mrs. Pūku‘i was the teacher. Many of the stories she used were later published in her books with Caroline Curtis.

Winona Beamer from the 1941 yearbook. As a 9th grader Winona was kicked out of Kamehameha for dancing a standing hula.

Reverend Stephen Desha, the Kamehameha Schools’ chaplain, led a once a week non-credit Hawaiian class for junior and senior boys and girls. The student newspaper reported that “[N]ow Kamehameha boys and girls are encouraged to speak and write in their native tongue… The class has been working on the use of every day words and terms. Such things as names of districts and locations are being studied. As time passes, the class is striving to bring the culture of Hawai‘i nearer to the youth of the islands.” Again, this was a once a week, non-credit class.

That same year, 1944, the student paper carried a rather curious message on the subject of hula at Kamehameha. It was from Mary Frances Barnes, the wife of Homer Barnes, Boys’ School principal since 1931. She had learned the ‘ukulele and traditional Hawaiian nose flute, and had studied hula from Winona Beamer’s mother. Aunty Nona would later exclaim: “It just galled me to the quick that she could come and study with my mother and I couldn’t do any of these dances that my mother had taught me!”

When her husband resigned in 1944, Mary Barnes left this parting message in “Ka Mō‘ï”: “I wish I could create in all of you so much respect for this beautiful dance, that you would use all your influence to keep it worthy of the respect it deserves. I wish hulas were danced on every occasion as an inspiration to all who see them.”

It was not to happen legally for another twenty and more years.

In 1946, President Harold Kent assumed the presidency of Kamehameha and in his first public statement offered the following: “It will be my sole purpose to sincerely develop the schools so that they may be of the greatest service to the Hawaiian people through developing in character and leadership an ever-growing number of their youth, and through perpetuating in every wholesome and thorough way the finest aspects of the glorious Hawaiian culture.”

The standing hula did not qualify with Colonel Kent as fine and glorious and wholesome. Kent was the incarnation of the most respectable Protestant Christianity, and the standing hula embodied other Hawaiian things.

In the spring of 1947, Harold Kent established a Hawaiian Culture Committee to study various phases of the culture that might be incorporated into the curriculum. Don Mitchell was appointed head of the committee, which included many cultural luminaries of the day, among them Rev. Stephen Desha, Mrs. Mary Pūku‘i, Miss Margaret Titcomb, Miss Beatrice Mo‘okini, Dr. Kenneth P. Emory, Miss Caroline Curtis, and Mrs. Dorothy Kahananui Gillette.

The decade of the 50s was one of numerous publications—the culture of the written word. The collaboration of Pūku‘i/Curtis produced such titles as “Pīkoi,” “Water of Kāne,” and “Tales of the Menehune.”

From 1951-53 “Ka Mō‘ï” ran a column in Hawaiian, student-authored by Jean Kelly of Ni‘ihau, James Merseberg, William Kaina and David Ka‘upu, at times writing together, at times individually. With the graduation of the “three kahu” in 1951, Jean Kelly continued the series.

Significantly, from 1952 until 1964, Dr. Mitchell designed and taught courses for KS students at the Bishop Museum. The students worked closely with artifacts and became museum guides to thousands of public and private school children who visited the museum each year. This is seen as the most successful collaboration to date between Kamehameha and the museum .

The lessons developed by Dr. Mitchell for the students were first published by KS in 1969 as “Resource Units in Hawaiian Culture.” It remains an important work to this day.

Other powerful—if more covert—Hawaiian lessons were reaching students as well: living, formative lessons that would contribute to the breaking of the kapu on standing hula some ten years later. In the mid-1950s Aunty Nona Beamer began teaching hula classes in the Dorm M laundry room. Standing hula. In violation of KS rules. We’ll come back to this.

The absolute crowning achievement in Hawaiian cultural publications in the decade of the fifties was the appearance in 1957 of the Pūku‘i/Elbert “Hawaiian Dictionary,” the springboard for so much that has happened in Hawaiian language and culture ever since.

In 1961, Hawaiian was added to the list of “foreign” languages available to the students in the two upper schools. “Ka Mō‘ï” of March 10, 1961, mentions 24 students were enrolled the first year and 27 in 1962.

Later that month President Kent noted that “Hawaiian language is now taught in the seventh and eighth grades at the Kamehameha Preparatory Department.” And he added what he called “other tangential uses of Hawaiian at the Schools”:
• “Graces are sung in Hawaiian.
• Hawaiian music is presented by choral groups.
• The deputation teams always read the Scripture in Hawaiian.
• Miscellaneous usages and practices are in effect.”

During this period, Mrs. Dorothy M. Kahananui was asked to prepare teaching materials in Hawaiian. By 1965, a 175-page textbook entitled “E Pāpā‘ōlelo Kākou” was completed. Mrs. Kahananui began teaching Hawaiian language to ninth grade students, the first elective course in what was to be a three-year sequence.

In the years that followed, formal Hawaiian language teaching gained a foothold on the Kapālama campus of the Kamehameha Schools. But this was by no means a widespread, exuberant affirmation of Kamehameha’s Hawaiianess. Sarah Quick Keahi, who taught Hawaiian for 37 years from 1966 to 2003, recalls Kamehameha then:

“When I first came to Kamehameha, Hawaiian was really the orphan of the institution… You should take French or Spanish…the top students didn’t take Hawaiian… And I guess coming from the public school I had this idea that everybody at Kamehameha knew about Hawaiian. And I came here and I thought ‘Wow, that’s not true at all! They don’t know anything!’ There wasn’t anything in Hawaiian studies. Dr. Mitchell’s course was seen as “enrichment,” not academic. And I thought, ‘Wow!’ And so we made this proposal year after year after year. Finally they did a graduate survey and the graduates said that when they went to the mainland, people asked them about Hawai‘i and Hawaiians and they couldn’t answer intelligently. Finally, after community pressure and the graduate survey, it became a reality. Prior to that we had proposed it for our students for seven years in a row.”

By far the most dramatic event of this decade, however, occurred the year before Sarah started teaching when, in 1965, the kapu on standing hula was broken. This is a story of many cultural torches.

Breaking the kapu took a concerted campaign, the determined acts of students, appeals from teachers, comparisons with dance culture worldwide, authoritative testimony from Donald Kilolani Mitchell, and a lobbying campaign at Bishop Estate headquarters spear-headed by Gladys Brandt, principal of KSG.

To trace the beginnings of defiance on this one, as mentioned earlier, we must return to the mid-1950s and Aunty Nona Beamer’s lessons in the laundry room of Dorm M. In interview she recollects:

“…I was half-time for 10 years. There was no Hawaiian Studies department. But the students were asking. And my classroom was in the laundry, in the dorm. With the machines going. You could smell the soap and Clorox. And big pillars in the middle of the classroom, so you kinda had to peer around them to see the students. And then the boys asked if they could come, ‘cause we were the Girls’ School. And I said sure, come on up! So they’d trudge up the hill and only had like ten minutes passing time, so they’d be late getting there, and then have to leave early to go back down.”

A couple of years later, an unsung hero of this story, PE teacher Midge Mossman, began to include hula in her classes. Nona Beamer describes Midge thus in a 2003 interview: “Her enthusiasm was unbounded. And her love…I think her love is just unsurmounted. It really was…No boundaries to her enthusiasm. Her love just surrounded everything she did. She was a remarkable gal.”

And—as a wonderful reminder to us of the power of teaching—both of these young women were speaking strongly to their students about the pride they should feel in being Hawaiian.

When asked in interview if she remembered such conversations with Mrs. Beamer, Vicky Holt-Takamine, class of ’65, exclaimed: “Oh! Very much so! Very much so! I mean she would tell us, ‘You need to be proud of who you are as Hawaiians…We have a very rich culture…We have many traditions. We are a people of, of, of, ’ What did she say? ‘A people of spirit. Of love.’”

Vicky was being influenced as well by another strong source from outside the walls of Kamehameha, a hula studio on Ke‘eaumoku Street where standing hula was taken very seriously. Again Vicky: “Well, when I got to high school…I was a student of Maiki Aiu Lake. And …I had question marks on a lot of things.” Vicky wasn’t the only student who questioned KS policy on hula. Other students who danced “outside” included Kanani Kalama and Louise Beamer, a niece of Aunty Nona.

In an article in “Ka Mō‘ï” dated March 26, 1965, senior Louise Beamer spoke of her love for hula almost flauntingly as she quipped “You name them, I do them!” Because of her skills, Louise was an assistant dance instructor at the Kamehameha Karnival Hawaiian Show that year, scheduled for Friday, April 2.

The Hawaiian show at the old Kekūhaupi‘o hangar was to start at 7:30pm. It was entitled He Inoa No Kalākaua. You will recall that it was Kalākaua who spoke at the school’s dedication, standing next to the anti-hula Sereno Bishop. The article in “Ka Mō‘ï” ends with a cautionary reminder that “all hula will be performed in sitting position.”

It was not to be. Some days earlier, Louise Beamer had performed the song “Kawohikūkapulani,” written by her great grandmother, Aunty Nona’s grandmother. Louise performed it standing in front of students, for which she was firmly chastised. The students were shocked. Angry.

Meanwhile, and backtracking just a bit, behind the scenes that spring, less public calls for change were coming from teachers and administrators in the form of letters to the trustees. In early February, President Bushong wrote, suggesting that the time had come to allow standing hula.

The trustees responded: “Please confer with Miss Nona Beamer, dancing instructor at the schools, determining from her the cultural aspects of the hula which are presently being taught.” The information came back not from Nona but from Don Mitchell. In a letter dated February 16, he summarized the view on this matter from the Bishop Museum: “Knowledgeable staff there,” he noted, “recognized that this form of expression was and still remains a dance of grace, beauty and meaning. The story of Hawai‘i could not be understood without it. Mary Kawena Pūku‘i has said for many years that Kamehameha should teach and perpetuate the very best in traditional hula, including the standing forms. And teach the very best versions.”

The following day, February 16th, 1965, PE teacher Midge Mossman in a three-page, single-spaced, typed memo of her own passionately argued the virtues of standing hula:

“The ancient form of the dance accompanies the chant as the modern interpretative dances accompany the modern Hawaiian melodies. Both are a definite part of our culture. The ancient is not the only hula . . . Both dance forms evolved out of the same culture but at different times and both have equal merit…”

That was an argument from culture. There was another argument. Again, Midge Mossman: “There seems to be a double standard that will be evident this year in our Kamehameha Karnival. The dancers in the Hawaiian Show will not be permitted to do standing hulas, yet the dancers in the Shindig Show will be dancing the Monkey and the rock-and-roll dances in their choreography.”

James Bushong, whose wife was a student of Nona Beamer’s mother, took the broad view. “In Italy, Russia and other countries their national ballet has achieved world acclaim for variety, intricacy and expression of movement. In similar fashion, the traditional hula epitomizes the historic culture of Hawai‘i.”

Kamehameha Karnival April 2, 1965: At the Hawaiian show that evening, students defiantly stood to dance “Kaulana Nā Pua.” thus effectively breaking the 78 year-old kapu on standing hula at Kamehameha. (award winning photo by then KS senior Bruce Lum)

“The Hawaiian Show at the 1965 Karnival. The girls here remain kneeling, in compliance with KS policy. In their final dance, “Kaulana Nā Pua,” they will stand up—a first at Kamehameha”

Newly-formed Hawaiian Ensemble students practice for first Hō‘ike in which standing hula was allowed: Song Contest 1966.

While the adult conversations would continue, the students’ impatience would not wait. The Karnival Show was on Friday, April 2. In a recent interview, Kaho‘onei Panoke, who was very involved in the show, recalls the growing student unrest as that date approached:

“… It was really driven by the students because after what happened to Louise … we decided, ‘No, this cannot go on…We are Hawaiians. Standing hula is part of our culture.’ And then they said, “Well, you can do standing hula but you can only do the motions. You can’t do any body movement to it. And we said, “No, that would be unacceptable.”

As if to heighten the dramatic tension of this historic moment, the students that evening initially complied. Until the last dance that is, which was “Kaulana Nā Pua.” For that they stood.

Vicky Holt-Takamine, who was Karnival Queen, recalls: “We did it consciously. It was a perfect number for that…we didn’t want to sit down and do hula. And I think that Kanani Kalama was one that took the lead on that… saying, “You know, we have to stand up and do this. We just can’t sit down…”

This was a turning point. Huliau. Those students standing tall on stage that evening are for me the many standing torches…Kū ka lau lama!

Emerging out of that 1965 Kamehameha Karnival was the sense in the minds of the students that the stage that evening was the birthplace of the first Hō‘ike. Those dancers would go on in the coming months to form what to this day is called the Hawaiian Ensemble.

The group, which included sophomores, juniors and soon-to-graduate seniors, then began preparing for a trip to Japan. Kalani Cockett, who worked with the Hawai‘i Visitors’ Bureau and had helped out with the Karnival, wanted to take the students on a cultural exchange.

The students practiced several times a week all that spring. Publicly. Right spang in front of Ka‘ahumanu Gym. If there lingered any question in the high school students as to whether standing hula was still not happening on campus, their questions were quickly dissipated by those very public rehearsals. Again, Vicky Holt-Takamine, this time with a kolohe twinkle to her voice:

“We did standing hula! We did Tahitian! We did Maori! We shook our bodies all over campus that summer!”

It was this group, now officially called the Hawaiian Ensemble, which presented the first Hō‘ike during the judges tally at the Song Contest in the spring of 1966. The show included standing hula and was greeted enthusiastically. The classes of ’65, ’66 and ’67 have never quite received the recognition they deserve for helping to change the culture of Kamehameha so profoundly. As for the singing that night, it was a senior sweep!

Meanwhile, rewinding back to the adults and the spring of 1965: President Bushong did not want to have to lobby the trustees. He told Gladys Brandt to do it.

The first one she spoke with was trustee Richard Lyman. He told her to forget about it, which only made her all the more determined to go after the others.

Second was Atherton Richards, son of Theodore Richards, the musical principal of Kamehameha who was in charge of the school when Gladys’s father taught there. Atherton Richards liked Gladys. He used to send his car to campus to bring her to parties at his house on the beach at Diamond Head. There was dancing on the beautiful lawns, standing hula, and some of the dancers were Kamehameha girls. Gladys pointed this out to Richards. Yes, he said, but they were graduates. But then he said yes to Gladys.

Next was Frank Midkiff, the enlightened Schools’ president from the 1920s, old now. It was hard going with him, but eventually he said yes. So did Herbert Keppeler.

Then Gladys got a call from Richard Lyman. He had reconsidered. That was a fourth yes. “One to go,” he said, and he laughed. “You will not pass this one!”

“This one” was Edwin Murray. KS graduate and Hawaiian trustee—the trustee whom fellow trustees referred to as having forgotten he was Hawaiian. Gladys had a hula history of her own with Murray. Not long before, she had been in charge of the entertainment at an event for the trustees on campus. From the way she described the setting in interview, the event was probably held at the Administrative Building on the Lānai Terrace: tables on the lawn, Hawaiian food, and ‘Iolani Luahine, dancing, beautifully. You will recall that ‘Iolani had left KS in the 30s because of the hula policy.

In the middle of the performance, Gladys looked around for Murray. He was gone. She spotted him, went over to him and said, “Isn’t she lovely?” Murray took his cigar out of his mouth—he always had a cigar—and said, “She dances like she has ants in her pants.”

In the coming days, Gladys made an appointment to see Murray at Bishop Estate headquarters. It was a fiasco. Murray grumbled he had no idea that she had come to Kamehameha to promote indecency. Gladys did not take this well.

Again, in interview: “I just went haywire. I just thought I got slapped in my face left and right. I lost my cool. I was just rocking all over the place. I thought I would use every four-letter word at him. His chair flew back. I said something about the military, missionary ethic and all that kind of dumb thing. I should have known better—that he was my father’s vintage. They were like each other. I was terrible. I went out bawling.”

She got back to campus, and there was a message to call Murray. “I thought I was being fired. So I thought, well, I hope Kaua‘i will give me a job.” She phoned him. “He called me ‘woman.’ I will never forget that. ‘Woman!’ he said, ‘I got a table for my family, and if those girls wiggle too much, you know where you’ll be!’ And bang went the phone.”

Gladys dried her eyes, blew her nose. Murray had booked a table for the annual Holokū Ball at the Royal Hawaiian Hotel and now the girls would dance.

The evening was a huge success, applause and more applause after each of the dances. Murray was there. He sat through it. Next day the papers ran a big story. Seventy-eight years after the dedication ceremony at Kaiwi‘ula, standing hula had official standing at Kamehameha.

Well, almost. The story wasn’t quite over yet. “The performance of mele ma‘i,” says Randie Fong in a recent email, “was banned through the 80s. An administrator was actually assigned to review the Hō‘ike for ‘appropriateness’ until we decided to do ‘‘Anapau’ in 1988 and asserted control over the repertoire. Subsequently, administrative reviews ceased and we’ve since then felt free to include sexual references whenever and wherever appropriate.”

Echoes of the early 60s when Nona Beamer’s lesson plans were regularly scrutinized by administrators for “lascivious” content.

At this point, for the sake of time, I would like to move ahead rather quickly.

We have included a historic overview in your binder, written in 1975 by Don Mitchell and Nani Bowman which does a good job of recapping some of what I have covered this evening and also tells much of what was happening in the early 1970s, including the very important initiatives undertaken by the Extension Education Division under Fred Cachola’s visionary leadership. Among the programs was the Hawaiian Studies Institute.

Understandably, the Mitchell/Bowman piece does not explore the huge contextual importance of the Hawaiian Renaissance as the dynamic backdrop to the 70s. Just a few highlights:
• The political activism of the day: Kalama Valley, Kaho‘olawe and more.
• The founding in 1972 of ‘Ahahui ‘Ōlelo Hawai‘i the Statewide Hawaiian Language Organization.
• The founding on campus in 1974 of the male hālau Nā Kamalei by KS graduates Robert Cazimero and Wayne Chang, both students of Maiki Aiu.
• The Hōkūle‘a.
• The surging cultural interest in music, dance, paddling and other practices.
• The Hawai‘i Constitutional Convention in 1978 recognizing Hawaiian language as being equal in status to English.

All of this not-withstanding, a Kamehameha honors student, Kēhau Abad, in the late seventies was still being advised not to take Hawaiian as it was not seen to enhance her academic prospects. Ironically, Kēhau had Sarah Quick Keahi as her homeroom teacher all four years of high school! She remembers wondering to herself even as a high school student: “What’s the background message here? That somehow it’s not a real culture and we weren’t a real people.” Shockingly, this practice of steering students away from Hawaiian continued into the early 1990s and is reported not infrequently to this day.

Nothing I can say in the time remaining could do justice to the tremendous contributions of Pinky Thompson. As you know only so well, his towering figure as a promoter of culture spans this whole period, casting the light of his many torches upon us, our school and indeed all who call Hawai‘i home.

As much as anyone, Pinky got us to look to the South Pacific, urging Hawaiians to honor their origins, their MAINland, as lying there rather than to the northeast. In the 1980s-90s, Kamehameha students and staff made many trips to the South Pacific, beginning in 1982 when Fred Cachola took Holoua Stender, Randie Fong and the Concert Glee Club to Western Sāmoa.

These trips were life altering for many of us, Hawaiians and non-Hawaiians alike, and not the least our students. Julian Ako notes that the 1991 trip to Roratonga and Tahiti was for him a first step on his Hawaiian language path, a journey that eventually would lead to two Hōkū Hanohano awards as composer of the year. These trips were a turning point for the institution in that profound changes occurred in our attitudes about our identity on campus and among KS leaders. Huliau!

Another initiative of great importance was in 1983 when a group of Hawaiian language teachers, including KS graduates Ilei Beniamina, Kauanoe Kamanā, No‘eau Warner, and Larry Kimura formed the ‘Aha Pūnana Leo which has played such a huge role in the renewal of Hawaiian language in the community at large and at Kamehameha. I should add that frustration over Kamehameha doing too little to reinvigorate and perpetuate the native language was in part what drove these people to do what has become their life’s work. Huliau!

Sarah’s description of Hawaiian being the orphan of the institution fits until well into the 1980s. In 1985, for example, only 10.7% of all language students were enrolled in Hawaiian, while 46% were choosing Japanese and the rest Spanish and French.

Enrollments in Hawaiian steadily and strongly rose in the next decade. New teachers were hired yearly as numbers climbed to peak in 1994-95 at 902 students enrolled or 60.2% of total language enrollments. Most of these new teachers, including Liana Honda, Keola Wong, Lilinoe Ka‘ahunui, Hailama Farden, Mele Pang, and Kalei A‘arona-Lorenzo, are KS graduates and former students of Sarah Keahi.

Teachers received support from Kamehameha to develop new curriculum and a kūpuna program was begun, with Kūpuna Elizabeth Kauahipaula, Bill Pānui and Violet Hughes visiting classes regularly.

Other important cultural initiatives of this period included the first steps taken toward the design of a Hawaiian Cultural Center, and the three series of year-long study groups entitled “Hawai‘i Kuauli,” designed by Kāwika Makanani.

The controversy of the late-nineties wreaked havoc on the Hawaiian language program. Spirits fell. Enrollments fell. Mandates from the majority trustees stipulated the teaching of “classic Hawaiian” only and forbade the use of the pepeke grammar system and the modern dictionary “Mamaka Kaiao.”

Hawaiian language teachers were defiant in defense of a program that they knew to be successful. They issued a statement saying they would not heed the orders from on high. Several Hawaiian language and culture teachers went on to play prominent roles in the teacher organization Nā Kumu and the founding of KSFA, the faculty union.

The strategic planning that followed the ouster/resignation of the former trustees in 1999, elevated ‘Ike Hawai‘i to a position of central and often-referred to stature in our school community. The words and the document ring hopeful. The actual deeds await.

CONCLUSION
On January 15, 2003, Gladys Brandt died. Her days spanned much of the history we have reviewed here. At the Bishop Memorial Chapel service celebrating her life, and following a bold performance of “‘Au‘a ‘Ia” before the altar, trustee Connie Lau referred to Kamehameha as a “Hawaiian school.” Hers was the first time that we had heard this absolute assertion at such an official moment of ceremony and reverence. At long last!

Earlier tonight, we saw Gladys Brandt as a child in shame, rubbing her skin with lemon juice. In our work tomorrow, let us not forget that image. Nor her words, quoted earlier, taken from a letter she wrote three months before her death:

“My father and mother, like virtually all Hawaiians at that time, wanted their children to succeed, and they believed that to do so required their children to adopt Western ways. Unfortunately, they thought this was possible only by leaving behind the Hawaiian language and culture. If they were alive today, they would feel differently. Like all of us, they were a product of their time.”

Those of us who now carry the responsibility for these days do indeed feel very differently. As Aunty Gladys said, we are products of our time. Yes. Yet while here, as Gladys Brandt also so wonderfully demonstrated in her life, we are called upon to use our days wisely and passionately to nudge, sometimes even thrust, our times nearer our dreams.

Our challenge to ourselves in this work of Ho‘ohawai‘i must be to probe our deepest sense of who we have been as a western school for Hawaiians, and ponder what we must now become, in these times, as a Hawaiian school.

Let us begin by asserting unambiguously that by the genealogy of our Princess, by the mana of our royal land base, by the backgrounds of our students, and by the bright light of those who have held high this culture, we are a Hawaiian school. This is a fact forever. This fact is indisputable and non-negotiable. We need no longer discuss it. We must instead locate together our new meaning, and from this meaning create that which most honors these deepest insights. Our task today is about destination; more importantly for Kamehameha, it is about destiny.

………….it’s enjoyable to watch our Hawaiian dances……….it’s interesting how the 1888 article by REVEREND SERENO BISHOP IS NOT POINTED OUT……………hmmm…………

Let our work be strong and joyous! It is far from dark within. Kū ka lau lama! Forever standing amongst us are those many cultural leaders who have preceded us—heroes sung and unsung: Pauahi, Theodore Richards, Lydia Aholo, Frank Midkiff, John Wise, Kilolani Mitchell, Mary Kawena Pūku‘i, Winona Beamer, Midge Mossman, Gladys Brandt, Sarah Quick Keahi, Pinky Thompson and others.

These are the beloved kūpuna of our meeting here this weekend. In their times at Kamehameha, and like you this evening, they were students, teachers, administrators, and trustees. More importantly, more lastingly, they were keepers of culture. As the lasting cultural leaders of our story, they are here tonight as sure as you and I.

You, the cultural leaders of these times, seize the mana! Take their light and their aloha, their hurt and their hope, their care and their courage and thrust this Hawaiian institution forward as they have done before us! Huliau!
“Let our work be strong and joyous! It is far from dark within! Kū ka lau lama!”

Note by A. Gora: although Rap Reiplinger is FUNNY……….he was basically criticizing our Hawaiian Chanting, culture………..he did go to PUNAHOU Schools, a racist, missionary, treasonous based school making more Pirates…………OBAMA went there too………..

aren’t comedians such as this playing the same music like REVEREND SERENO BISHOP……

Hawai’i, January 16, 1893
The Rosy Dawn of US Imperialism

by GARY LEUPP

On this day 110 years ago, U.S. Marines, acting at the invitation of wealthy haole (white) sugar planters, invaded the Kingdom of Hawai’i and overthrew Queen Lili’uokalani, eighth monarch in the line of King Kamehameha I. A day, to coin a phrase, that lives in infamy. Five years later, Hawai’i was formally annexed by the U.S.; it became a U.S. “territory” in 1900, and the fiftieth state in 1959.

The inception of U.S. imperialism is generally traced to 1898, and the acquisition of an overseas empire (Puerto Rico, the Philippines) as spoils of the Spanish-American War. From that point, there was a vigorous debate in the U.S. about the pros and cons of imperialism (usually conceptualized as a policy that the government might or might not pursue, rather than as a system constituting, in Lenin’s phrase, the “highest stage of capitalism”). Globally, the “new imperialism” is usually dated to the 1870s and 1880s. It’s distinguished from the empire-building in the Americas and parts of Asia during the sixteenth to eighteenth centuries by the fact that it was based on direct investment feeding capitalist-industrial economies (rather than the quest for gold, silver, slaves, etc.) From the 1870s, the “scramble for Africa” partitioned nearly the whole of that continent among the European powers. In Polynesia (a region generally neglected by historians, even “world historians”), Fiji, Tahiti, Hawai’i, Samoa, and Tonga were all colonized between 1870 and 1900. The last major Maori uprising in Aotearoa (New Zealand, the southwest limit of Polynesia) was suppressed by the British in 1870.

It seems to me, though, that one can trace the rosy dawn of U.S. imperialism at the very least to 1893 and the Marines’ criminal action in Hawai’i, or maybe to the gunboat diplomacy of Commodore Perry’s mission to Japan in 1853-4, or maybe even to the actions of American nationals in Hawai’i from the arrival of Protestant missionaries from Massachusetts in 1820. In both Hawai’i and Japan, the U.S. sought to impose what today is lauded in mainstream political and journalistic discourse as “globalization.” Encouragement or creation of “free” market economies welcoming exports and foreign investment. Privatization, allowing for foreign acquisition of local resources. “Free flow” of (Judeo-Christian, Greco-Roman, western) ideas. Hospitality to foreign military presence—to insure “freedom” for the right sort of people. This was the agenda of western imperialists throughout Polynesia.

The Hawaiian monarchs, one must grant, abetted the process. In 1821 Kamehameha II, fearing he would burn in hell otherwise, embraced the missionaries’ fundamentalist teachings and bowed to their advice. Thereafter missionary families (usually holding both U.S. and Hawaiian citizenship, the latter graciously and foolishly conferred) came to dominate both the Hawaiian economy and its politics. (As they say in Hawai’i, in the beginning the missionaries had the Bible, and the people had the land; now the people have the Bible, and the missionaries, the land.) Submitting to missionary and sugar planter pressure, Kamehameha III agreed to discard the prior system of feudal land tenure (which insured that the maka’aina or commoners could engage in subsistence agriculture-very productive and healthy agriculture at that) with a system of private property that in short order dispossessed the great majority of Hawaiians, whose ranks were being horrifically decimated by diseases introduced from abroad. He allowed resident foreigners to vote in elections for the newly formed legislature, on a par with native Hawaiians. Fearing the mounting influence of Americans, he even began negotiating with them about the annexation of his nation on terms that would at least allow for Hawaiians’ survival.

This king was succeeded by two rulers, both his nephews, who terminated discussion of annexation, sought to diminish Americans’ influence over the polity, and strove to build ties with Japan (recently “opened,” and an up-and-coming, soon to be imperialist power) as a counterweight to that influence. King Kalakaua (r. 1874-91) traveled the world, seeking to boost Hawai’i’s prestige and insure its independence, in part through a proposed alliance with Japan. He promoted a renaissance of indigenous culture, most notably reviving the hula tradition of dance, which the missionaries had banned. (They were oh, so consternated that they couldn’t crush this pagan, vile, and lewd native boogie.) On the other hand, he traded a reciprocity treaty maintaining Hawai’i’s favored access to the U.S. sugar market for U.S. use of Pearl Harbor as a naval base. Worse, he bowed to the pressure of the sugar planters and agreed to a new constitution (called “the Bayonet Constitution” as it was dictated by the missionaries and planters and accompanied by the threat of his overthrow), which disenfranchised three-fourths of what had been the native Hawaiian voting population.

Kalakaua’s sister Lili’uokalani succeeded him after his death. Her efforts, in response to overwhelming popular sentiment, to promulgate a new constitution restoring native rights and limiting the foreigners’ influence, met with fierce resistance from members of the American business community. The latter actively plotted to arrange U.S. annexation. Their ally, U.S. Minister plenipotentiary John L. Stevens, wrote to the U.S. Secretary of State in March 1892, seeking instructions on how to proceed. “The golden hour,” he declared, “is near at hand.” The following January, thirteen top haole capitalists met to plan a coup, organizing a paramilitary force to lay the groundwork. Its name? Why, The Committee of Public Safety, of course. Stevens, well informed of the conspiracy, assured them that the marines aboard USS Boston in Honolulu Harbor were “ready to land at any moment” to assist their worthy civilizing annexationist goals. On January 13, the Committee of Public Safety informed the queen it planned to announce that the throne had been vacated. Shocked (as you’d be if you were her), she appealed for support to Minister Stevens, supposing that the U.S., which she had visited and much admired, and with which her government had excellent relations, would oppose the overthrow of her constitutional government. Lili’uokalani was a brilliant, highly articulate lady, composer of over a hundred songs, including the immortal Aloha Oe (and even more moving ones written during her subsequent imprisonment). But alas, so naïve.

On January 16, the Committee of Public Safety sent a letter to Stevens claiming that the queen was attempting “with armed force and threats of bloodshed” to impose a new constitution. “We are unable to protect ourselves without aid,” whined the sugar barons, “and, therefore, pray for the protection of the United States forces.” (Shades of Grenada, 1983, when Reagan invaded to protect the lives of U.S. medical students. We should commemorate that anniversary too.) Sure enough, boatloads of bluejackets, America’s finest, were soon storming down Nuuanu Street to Stevens’ office as Sanford B. Dole, son of missionaries, sugar magnate, and Supreme Court Justice, proclaimed a provisional republic “until terms of union with the United States have been negotiated.” Dole became the first president of the Hawaiian Republic. (Compare Texas, 1836.)

Thus Lili’uokalani was shunted aside, and in an effort to avoid bloodshed, she agreed to “yield my authority until such time as the Government of the United States shallundo the action of its representative” But sympathy for her remained strong, and while authorities in Washington debated the pros and cons of annexing Hawai’i, supporters of the queen led by Robert Wilcox (formally an anti-monarchist but now inclined to support the queen’s cause against foreign aggression) quite reasonably plotted an insurrection. (Meanwhile racism pervaded the entire discourse about annexation in the U.S. The pro side said, “Let’s expand into the Pacific in accordance with God’s plan, make money and civilize those South Sea savages.” The con side said, “We don’t want or need any more dangerous, lascivious negro citizens in this country.” Newly elected President Grover Cleveland for his part strongly condemned Lili’uokalani’s overthrow and called for her restoration to the throne. In response, thug Dole—who has streets named after him—criticized Washington’s “interference in the internal affairs” of Hawai’i!)

Wilcox’s pro-Queen rebellion was aborted in January 1894, and on January 16, a year after her overthrow, the queen was arrested. Officials of the republic found a respectable cache of arms at her residence, including 21 bombs (some made with coconut shells), as well as 30 rifles.

[Digression about coconuts and their usage. Many consider the production of pottery a hallmark of cultural advance. Historically, the potter's wheel and ceramic production tend to accompany the beginnings of agriculture; grains and other foodstuffs are stored in and served on dishes. But while Polynesian peoples on the Bismarck Peninsula pioneered in ceramic production some 3500 years ago (the Lapita culture), pottery did not become generally diffused throughout Polynesia. Why? Because intelligent people decided it was easier to use gourds, koa wood, coconuts etc. to serve the same purpose as pottery. Now, the coconut (Cocos nucifera) includes a thick hardy grenade of fibrous husk. It contains a fruit easy to remove, and "milk" from which I recommend you prepare haupia pudding (there are recipes on the net) before proceeding. Then you can use the shell to serve or store macadamia nuts, coffee beans, ohelo berries, pickled plums, dried squid, explosive materials, and so on. Creative, practical minds around Lili'uokalani contrived coconut bombs. I don't know what happened to them; perhaps there is one on display in the Bishop Museum in Honolulu.]

Potential terror-bomber Lili’uokalani was charged with treason, of all things, and placed under house arrest. After nine months, and the sentencing of five of her supporters to death, she acceded to another “forced abdication” in part to win clemency for her supporters. Justice was served; she was sentenced to five years at hard labor and fined five thousand dollars.

The sentence was not carried out, but a fine United Press correspondent, one Reverend Sereno Bishop of the prestigious Bishop missionary family (which founded the aforementioned Bishop Museum, a big Honolulu tourist attraction), a man who had earlier described the queen to the world as a pious Christian lady (which she was, actually) now eagerly endeavored to tarnish her reputation and thereby justify her removal. The queen had been manipulated, he revealed, by sorcerers (kahunas or native priests). She had made sacrifices to the native volcano goddess Pele, and promoted the salacious hula. Worst of all, she was really the bastard daughter of a “negro blackboot.” Pure disinformation, of course, of a type that people who watch CNN and read the New York Times may be familiar with. Queen Lili’uokalani died peacefully at age 79, in November 1917 (that most decisive and hopeful of months in modern history), accorded the priceless gift of U.S. citizenship, and grieving for her colonized people, who’d owned all the land in 1800, 10% of the land in 1893, and almost none of it at her death.

So this is the edifying tale of the overthrow of the Hawaiian kingdom. Greed, arrogance, bigotry, racism, lies, terror, treachery, deceit. The U.S. Congress pretty much conceded that ten years ago, offering a formal apology (Joint Resolution 19; see Congressional Record, vol. 139). “But wasn’t it all worth it in the end?” you might ask. “I mean, isn’t anybody better off being part of the U.S.A.?” Indeed, being a citizen of an imperialist country has its advantages, unevenly distributed though they may be. Having lived in Hawai’i during eleven of my most formative years, I can attest that life can be very, very pleasant even on islands dominated physically and economically by the U.S. military, a tourist industry that degrades and prostitutes the local people and culture, and a declining tropical agriculture. (Sugar operations finally collapsed during the last decade, just not competitive in the global economy anymore. The sugar capital’s gone to real estate, finance, tourism, macademia nuts, Kona coffee, etc.) I fervently believe that Hawai’i no ka oi (There’s no better place than Hawai’i.) But that’s despite the fact that the system sucks. It’s because the land, sky, sea and most of all the multiethnic people are so beautiful.

The seizure of the Hawaiian nation, in any case, wasn’t about improving the lot of a people systematically dispossessed and disenfranchised by the annexationists, any more than the de facto U.S. occupation of Afghanistan is about helping Afghans, or the coming war with Iraq about liberating that nation’s people. It was about more fully empowering the already powerful, and making the wealthy wealthier, squeezing profits out of coolie labor like you squeeze sweet sap out of sugarcane stalks. It was an early instance of U.S. imperialism, supported ideologically by religious fundamentalism and racism, and justified by bald-faced lies. Unfortunately, it’s not even one of the ugliest examples, and probably nowhere near the last.

But best to have faith that someday, imperialism will be all over. The past holds lessons we can build upon, striving towards that end. So here’s to anti-imperialist Queen Lili’uokalani, to rebel Wilcox, and to any well-considered use of Cocos nucifera, or other tropical agricultural products, to abet the cause of human liberation, in Polynesia or elsewhere.

LEST WE FORGET –WHEN THE HEAVENS WEPT
The Aliis of Hawaii Nei gathered into their waiting arms, one of their fairest members yesterday when Princess David Kawananakoa passed into the ever green valley of memories. Her final resting place will be the last crypt in the Royal Mausoleum; right next to her husband, Prince David Kawananakoa.
Born in Honolulu, January 1, 1882, the Princess was the daughter of the late James Campbell and Abigail Kaihelani Maipinepine of Lahaina, Maui. She was married to Prince David Kahalepouli Kawananakoa Piikoi, a prince of the Kalakaua dynasty and a descendent of an ancient Hawaiian family of chiefly and royal rank.
In Honolulu, Princess Kawananakoa, because interested in Hawaiian and civic affairs. She was Regent of the Hale O Na Alii O Hawaii, a fraternal organization of Hawaiian men and women; an honorary president of the Hawaiian Girls’ Club; an honorary president of the Kaahumanu Society besides being an officer or member in many other fraternal, civic and religious associations. She was a member of the Hawaiian Homes Commission and strongly urged that those of Hawaiian blood take advantage of the opportunity of going back to the land.
The Princess lived for many years in a home on Pensacola street, surrounded with Hawaiian antiques which had been the possessions of King Kalakaua and Queen Kapiolani, priceless souvenirs of the days when royalty ruled the islands. She died in her other home on Judd Street.
During the lying-in-state for a period of three days, the casket was surrounded by kahilis and capes of her family, and members of various organizations of which she was a member, stood watch. During the last hour proceeding the services at 3 P.M. on Sunday, April 15, 1945, the watch was kept by officers of the Hale O Na Alii, clad in their white holokus and red and yellow capes. Giant kahilis guarded the four corners of the bier, two of white feathers at the head and two of black feathers at the foot. Three magnificient yellow and red feather capes draped the casket.
The funeral procession proceeded from the home to the Nuuanu Mausoleum led by the Royal Hawaiian band cadets from the Kamehameha School. As the orchid and lei strewn casket was lowered into the crypt, the band played softly our own Hawaii Ponoi and Aloha Oe, while members of various Hawaiian societies stood at attention.
And so as the rain gods of Nuuanu shed a passing tear, Hawaii laid to rest one of its fairest and best loved princesses.

hi Kaohi,

perhaps knowing the opposition by Queen Kapiolani would tell you something about the Kuhio’s and Kawananakoa’s………………they ended assuming the private properties- not only lands, but capes, other archaeological relics/ancestral items of King Kalakaua’s, Queen Liliuokalani’s families, and some of Kamehameha’s families properties……

the Kuhio’s and Kawananakoa’s were part of the Masons/Freemason’s in the Hawaiian Islands and were supporters of the American treasonous persons………..therefore, they were both treasonous to the Hawaiian Kingdom……….

There’s much more to come……..and many will find it hard to swallow……….but the fact of the matter is that they were NOT Kamehameha descendants, NOT Kalakaua descendants, and NOT Queen Liliuokalani’s descendants or family…….they were Queen Kapiolani’s family………..linked to Kalakaua for he was “uncle” to them…………..King Kalakaua had two children: Kamaka (w) and Kaopu (k) and he had adopted children…..who were NOT the Kawananakoa’s or the Kuhio’s.

This burial ceremony was complete with kahili, feathers, feather capes…………..and what did they have for our Queen Liliuokalani?………….use of feather capes were withheld………….she had a funeral with invitation only and mostly haole’s were in attendance………heard that she was spat upon, etc. wicked people………

Queen Kapiolani is on record as denying giving the Prince Kuhio and Kawananakoa an outright deed. She instructed them to file it AFTER she died.

Poor Hawaiian people………….failing to check out the issues and let themselves be indoctrinated by PIRATES OF THE PACIFIC AND THE WORLD…………that in itself says a lot……….

aloha.

I can still remember vividly how my Uncle John Kaniaupio came to our home and got after my dad for moving to Hawaiian Homestead. Our house was built on sand…ancient graves that is… . My uncle took me to my bedroom window and pointed out the Lauhala trees and he said that when the fruit of the tree turns yellow, that is when the limu breaks from the reef and I will be able to gather. My dad use to watch me from shore while I swim in and out of the limu patch in the water picking only the fresh limu.

It’s ironic that when I was at guardrails–monkey pigs father walked up to me as I was sitting next to David filming with a bag of Lepoa–the smell was heavenly. I ate the whole thing and was a bit stingy in sharing. Can you believe it a bed of Lepoa at guardrails?

The second encounter was my grandfather Orlando Auld–he came to our house and was very up set with my parents for moving to Waimanalo Homestead too. I can remember that day clearly for it was unusual for my grandpa to fuss over my mom.

Both my grandfather and uncle do not really know each other. Both sides of my family disliked Kuhio. So, my life was impacted and with out knowing the reasons why, I too grew to dislke DHHL with a passion. As a child growing up in Waimanalo, I’ve come to know very bad things. Sadly, I see the ‘evil’ everyday in Waianae, how dare Na Kanaka create a sick colony for US.

I do know at one point everyone has a choice, but because DHHL is so locked in with Kuhio’s creepy deals and based on ‘incest’ too, I see no future. The Akaka Bill should be the last nail that seals the coffin on our culture and it’s people.

I never knew why my uncle Randy Kalahiki wanted to form a state agency OHA–until recently. The Kuhio’s were signing off on the dotted line and this practice continues on until today. When I recently spoke to Aunty Frenchy she sounded so sad. I know she tried everything to make it work. She gave everything she had to the Hawaiian Homesteaders and the general leases.

I have in my hand a copy of a June 3rd 1886..court of probate and signed by Henry Smith… to sell Lawai on Kauai and Hanaiakamalama in Nuuanu Valley after Queen Emma Kalelonalani was deceased by Alexander J. Cartwright. He was her Executor and Trustee. mmmmmm

How do we survive this catasrophe and still care for each other as a culture.

hi Kaohi,

Henry Smith, Alexander J. Cartwright were treasonous person, conspirators against our families, against the Queen and the Hawaiian Government.

There are descendants of theirs who continue to look for properties belonging to our families who are connected to Queen Emma, et. als. As a matter of fact, there was one who was at the Bureau of Conveyances the other day looking for Keliihananui’s property.

The Cartwright family are part of the Booth family, whose members began the Bank of Hawaii. In other words, they are related to BARACK OBAMA.

Notice you’ve mentioned “Auld” as you tutu……….which means you’re related to Tony Auld, and someone who was on Queen Liliuokalani’s will…………Mrs. Mary Auld and Mrs. Lilia Auld were to be given $300 as stated in #17 of her will.

We urgently need transparency over depleted uranium use

Recent research and a tide of media coverage are indicating that something is very wrong in the Iraqi city of Fallujah. The rates of certain cancers and birth malformations seem to be far higher than those of other countries in the region. Such is the level of concern, that the World Health Organisation is currently undertaking research in the city, elsewhere experts are trying to gauge whether environmental factors may be responsible. One such risk factor could be the possible use of uranium weapons in the US Marine-led assault on Fallujah in 2004. Marines Fallujah Marines dismount from Bradley vehicles during attack on Fallujah. Unfortunately, one major obstacle is standing in the way of these assessments – the refusal by the US to release data on exactly where the weapons have been used and in what quantities. At present, states that use uranium weapons do not have to disclose quantitative or geographical data about their use – no where, no how much, nothing. There are no norms governing the recording of data and nothing to say that it should be transferred between states. Indeed states are currently under no obligation to assist either each other – or the United Nations’ agencies for that matter – in identifying, marking, assessing, monitoring or clearing sites contaminated by uranium weapons. This is completely unacceptable. That exposure to uranium weapons has the potential to cause ill health is generally accepted. The main question remaining is how that risk is influenced by military, geographical, social and other factors. More research is urgently needed into civilian populations living in contaminated areas and right now the single biggest obstacle researchers face continues to be the lack of transparency from users. Transparency was identified as a priority by the UK Royal Society’s Depleted Uranium Working Group as far back as 2003: “The coalition needs to make clear where and how much depleted uranium was used in the recent conflict in Iraq. We need this information to identify civilians and soldiers who should be monitored for depleted uranium exposure and to begin a clean-up of the environment,” said Prof. Brian Spratt in 2003. What steps have been taken since then to release this data? In Iraq, we know that at least 440,000kg of DU was used by the US and UK in 1991 and 2003. Of this, just 1.9 tonnes is accounted for after the British cooperated with the UN Environment Programme (UNEP) in a 2007 study in Iraq. However this data from the UK has never been released into the public domain. In Bosnia, it took six years for NATO to confirm that it had used depleted uranium in its interventions in 1994 and 1995. In the case of Serbia and Kosovo, it took two direct interventions by the then UN Secretary General Kofi Annan on behalf of UNEP to persuade NATO to release its data. Given that the main factor in reducing the risk to civilians following the use of uranium weapons is the swift identification and marking of contaminated sites, the current situation seems particularly perverse. ICBUW has approached the US State Department and Department of Defence requesting the full disclosure of data about all contaminated sites in Iraq. If it is possible for the UK to disclose where it has used uranium weapons then there is no reason why the same should not go for the US. However, if the example of our request to reveal whether uranium were used in Fallujah is anything to go by – nine months and counting – we may be waiting some time; just as the people of Iraq have been. There are also long-standing questions over the use of depleted uranium in other conflicts. For example, Russia and the US may have both used it in Afghanistan while the US is alleged to have used it during interventions in Somalia in the 1990s. If states are unwilling to voluntarily release data on the use of uranium weapons, it is beholden on the international community to agree to take whatever steps necessary to develop binding rules governing what happens to these weapons once they are fired. ICBUW is calling for a resolution on this issue at the UN First Committee this autumn. We hope that states that have pushed for transparency in other areas of arms control such as the Netherlands, and those that have cooperated with UNEP on the issue of uranium weapons, such as the UK, will lend their support because without transparency, civilians will continue to be exposed to the harmful residue of these weapons.

hi Tane,

Some call these important finds “revisionist history” and they love it……….

Some call it hidden information and they love it………….

Some/Most get somewhat angry due to the lies, propaganda, indoctrination……and love the “new” info…….

The bottom line is that the premeditation by treasonous persons/pirates supported by the U.S. are issues that results in the knowledge that kanaka maoli/aboriginal Hawaiians still own their ancestral lands………..the intent is for everyone to copy, print and keep the documents with their land documents, etc.

A significant number of Hawaiians are returning to their ancestral lands or being given the support thru protective orders, documents, papers to protect our families properties, etc.

Perhaps the following article will make many understand where I’m coming from as well……..this is just one of the articles that have really pissed me off in the past………….and could probably be used for discussion purposes as well…………….aloha.

I name this article “ANIMOSITIES” — read about how Sereno Bishop wrote that those who did hula and kahuna were “venomous reptiles who need to be exterminated”…………pissed me off…does it piss you off too? issues of genocide here, especially since Sereno Bishop was raised by Amamalua and her husband Kaleikini, the families of the Makekau’s, the Kawananakoa’s, et. als.

Suppression of Hawaiian Culture at Kamehameha Schools
Author:
Kawika Eyre
Month:
01
Year:
2004

Kāwika Eyre teaches Hawaiian language at Kamehameha Schools Kapālama campus high school. For the past two years he has been on reassignment conducting an oral history project relating to the KS controversy of the 1990s. Some 230 interviews are now stored in the KS Archives, covering all aspects of those times. Kāwika is a member of the Hawaiian Cultural Center Project Committee and a representative of Nā Kumu o Kamehameha. The following article is a speech Eyre gave at a retreat for members of Hui Ho‘ohawai‘i in January of 2004.

Aloha pumehana kākou e nā hoa makamaka o Kamehameha.

The word we are using for this conference, huliau, refers to a turning point, a time of change. Interestingly, another meaning of huliau is to think of the past, to recall what has happened. Coincidental to our topic this evening, Mrs. Pūku‘i gives the following example in the “Hawaiian Dictionary.” “Ua ‘ākoakoa mākou no ka huliau ‘ana.” We are gathered together to recall the past.

I have been asked by the HCCP committee to be our guide on this journey, this huliau ‘ana, that we may know something of whom we have been as we seek a path into our future. Several people have helped me as readers. Their suggestions and enthusiasm have been invaluable. Thank you Randie Fong, Janet Zisk, Ke‘ala Kwan, Nona Beamer and Dale Noble.

Much of the material I will present tonight was gathered during my recent two-year reassignment—as requested by Nā Kumu o Kamehameha and supported in part by a grant from the Parrent Fund. I was asked to interview people and write about the controversy of the mid-to-late 90s. Some of the material that follows is excerpted directly from a manuscript in progress. Much of it traces to archival sources. I am indebted to George Kanahele, Loring Hudson, the staff of KS publications over the years, and others. As they all have affirmed by their work, in our effort to understand ourselves, we must look to our past. Huliau.

In most ways our past begins with Pauahi. Surely the most quoted passage of Pauahi’s Will reads:

“I desire my trustees to provide first and chiefly a good education in the common English branches, and also instruction in morals and in such useful knowledge as may tend to make good and industrious men and women…”

Many have wondered and some have spoken much about what Pauahi may have meant by her words, “providing a good education in the common English branches.”

In Pauahi’s final years of life, 150 or 57% of the schools in Hawai‘i were conducted completely in Hawaiian, primarily using non-Hawaiian content from the curriculum of the common English school. Those of us working in Hawaiian have all studied the anatomy books, the math books, the geography books of this period, most—if not all—taken from the “common English branches” of the day and translated into Hawaiian. But by content, it was “common English branches.”

We might remind ourselves as well of Pauahi’s close relationship to her cousin Princess Ruth Ke‘elikōlani, a physically stern but warm-hearted woman, now widely admired for her staunch, steadfast support of Hawaiian language and culture. The few samples we have of Pauahi’s handwritten Hawaiian come from her letters to Ruth, who refused to use English.

Gladys Brandt: “My father and mother, like virtually all Hawaiians at that time, wanted their children to succeed, and they believed that to do so required their children to adopt Western ways. Unfortunately, they thought this was possible only by leaving behind the Hawaiian language and culture. If they were alive today, they would feel differently.”

To be sure, in many native families of that time, there was a growing recognition, resignation perhaps, that English was a necessary condition for success in a changing Hawaiian world. In September of 2002, the summer before her death, Gladys Brandt described the attitude of her parents some twenty years after the founding of the Schools: “My father and mother, like virtually all Hawaiians at that time, wanted their children to succeed, and they believed that to do so required their children to adopt Western ways. Unfortunately, they thought this was possible only by leaving behind the Hawaiian language and culture. If they were alive today, they would feel differently.”

And yet Pauahi, in her day, was praised as a woman who took the best of both worlds, a woman of the highest Hawaiian stature, a woman quite perfectly bi-lingual and bi-cultural.

What I am getting at here is that I find it very difficult to accept the notion that Pauahi would have looked on in any way approvingly at what was happening to Hawaiian language and culture at Kamehameha in those first years of her schools. That violence against the Hawaiian world strikes us today as unpardonable. Yet both Pauahi and the will remain silent on these matters: she left no guidelines for the fledgling school. She died before she could know.

Let’s go back in time to those first days at Kamehameha.

On November 4, 1887, King Kalākaua, then the embodiment of Hawaiian cultural revitalization—not the least hula—spoke to the students in Hawaiian at the dedication of Kamehameha School for Boys.

Standing near him and giving the formal prayer that day was Reverend Sereno E. Bishop, no relation to Charles Bishop, but the annexationist son of a missionary. Sereno Bishop was a haole who could speak Hawaiian. He prayed for the Kamehameha boys in their language. In English, whenever the subject of hula came up—and Bishop brought it up often in his Christian newspaper “The Friend”—he ranted.

So from the very start, standing side by side at that opening ceremony, were profoundly opposing views of something so quintessentially Hawaiian as the hula. Kalākaua would celebrate hula; Sereno Bishop would denigrate hula. Confusion, conflict of cultural identity from day one at Kamehameha School. And the issue of hula will run like a jolting live wire through the Kamehameha story.

Kalākaua and the Rev. Bishop stood that day at Kaiwi‘ula. Today, as we know, the Bishop Museum is located on this site. The name Kaiwi‘ula, which translates as “the red bone,” refers to a battle fought on these fields long, long ago.

In the early years of Kamehameha Schools, another battle was to be fought at this site, this one a quiet clash of cultures where teachers and staff of the young school purposely and relentlessly sought to stamp out the native language and all aspects of Hawaiian ways.

The first principal at Kamehameha was a man named William Oleson. The Reverend Oleson was a fervid democrat with no time for monarchies, and he had a particularly low opinion of Kalākaua as a king, saying that he ruled by bribery, corruption, lasciviousness, sorcery and tyranny. In the same year that Oleson took charge at Kamehameha, 1887, he was a member of a haole committee that forced a rewritten constitution on Kalākaua, sharply limiting the king’s power. This was the Bayonet Constitution.

One of the first orders William Oleson gave at Kamehameha was to ban the Hawaiian language. English was the only language accepted for the work time and play time of Pauahi’s school. Hawaiian was forbidden in the classroom and on the playing fields, and the boys were punished if they were heard speaking the language of their families. This was in the late 1880s and early 90s, which means that Hawaiian was banned at Kamehameha well before it was officially outlawed at Hawai‘i’s public and private schools in 1896, three years after the overthrow.

“…teachers and staff of the young school purposely and relentlessly sought to stamp out the native language and all aspects of Hawaiian ways.”

The anti-Hawaiian campaign at Kaiwi‘ula was relentless. Non-stop. For decades. Every teacher was to be a teacher of English. Every incentive was offered, every tactic tried: slogans, “Better English Weeks,” encouragement to sit in the library and read books, praise and prizes for pronunciation, speech contests, oratory at assemblies, discussion groups, debating societies, drama clubs, off-campus passes, free periods, an “English holiday” for anyone not caught talking “native” for a month.

Within three years, student compliance was showing in school statistics. The October 1890 issue of the KS publication “Handicraft” reported: “Thus far the average number of those who have earned the Holiday has been sixty-five percent of the number enrolled.”

In 1894, William Oleson co-wrote a book with a title that said much about this man who had led Kamehameha Schools. Its title: “Picturesque Hawai‘i: A Charming Description of Her Unique History, Strange People, Exquisite Climate, Wondrous Volcanoes, Luxurious Productions, Beautiful Cities, Corrupt Monarchy, Recent Revolution and Provisional Government.” His co-author was James L. Stevens, United States minister to Hawai‘i in 1893, who had ordered American troops ashore, effectively guaranteeing the overthrow of the monarchy. Stevens wanted nothing more or less than annexation, and Oleson was with him all the way.

Let us be clear: The boys under Oleson at Kamehameha were not American annexationists. They were Hawaiians, and they were instinctive royalists, reverential to their ali‘i nui. In the first years of the school, which were the last years of the monarchy, King Kalākaua paid a visit to a classroom. The boys stood of their own accord and sang “Hawai‘i Pono‘ï.” When Queen Lili‘uokalani visited and drank coffee, no one would touch her cup afterwards; it was sacred to the ali‘i, kapu.

As George Kanahele relates, following the 1893 overthrow of the kingdom, the boys voted with their feet against this school that was run by annexationists. So many boys left and did not come back that enrollment went down by almost half and stayed down for the next two years.

Newly appointed principal Theodore Richards replaced William Oleson. Richards’ approach to resolving the enrollment crisis was to depoliticize and Hawaiianize the school. He had a good feel for working with Kamehameha boys, and he had a great appreciation of Hawaiian music and language. He put Hawaiian songs on the glee club program alongside Western classical songs, to great success in performance.

That was really the only time in the first decades at Kamehameha when the Hawaiian language was given fuller voice. That, and in chapel at Kaumakapili Church, where the “Lord’s Prayer” was sung in Hawaiian. Other prayers and sermons also were in “native.”

Hawaiian music flourished at Kamehameha. Hawaiian dance did not. Reverend Sereno Bishop, who had given the prayer at the opening of the boys’ school, maintained his relationship with Kamehameha as well as his strong anti-hula convictions. The dance, he wrote, was “one of the foul florescenses” on the “great poison tree of idolatry.” Bishop said hula corroded Hawaiians—and labeled it moral leprosy. This attitude, though more mildly expressed, endured until 1965.

No right-minded principal at Kamehameha would want foul florescence and moral leprosy on his campus. No right-minded Bishop Estate trustee would want it on estate lands either. There were early leases that banned hula along with liquor. And among students it was rumored that language in Pauahi’s will expressly forbade hula. Not true. Hawaiian was not heard in the halls of Kamehameha and, increasingly, Hawaiian students at Kamehameha could no longer hear Hawaiian within themselves: The “Handicraft” issue of March, 1897 carried the following—to us—somber reflection:

Kamehameha Schools 1893: Enrollments dropped by almost half as the boys voted with their feet against this school run by annexationists.

“Five years ago the Rev. Sereno Bishop taught a class of Kamehameha boys in the Kaumakapili Sunday School. Then it was necessary for him to employ his excellent knowledge of the native tongue to make himself understood. After this interval, in which he has seen little of the boys, he comes back to preach to them and naturally he chooses the Hawaiian language in which to address them, and for the same reasons as before. It transpired that a census taken after the sermon disclosed the fact that several had difficulty in understanding him, and eleven boys from the Manual, twenty-one from the Preparatory and twenty-one from the Girls’ School did not understand Hawaiian at all.”

We should not be surprised by the success of Kamehameha at dismembering Hawaiian. Early Kamehameha was essentially an English immersion school. As our friends from the Pūnana Leo movement have so aptly demonstrated, immersion is the most powerful of language pedagogies. Since most of the students were boarders, the influence of the Hawaiian home was thoroughly lessened and the opportunity to immerse students in English optimal. Though the prohibition against Hawaiian was in place for many years to come, its existence grew increasingly irrelevant as the language vanished in the children.

But—and perhaps this reflects something of that same confusion we noted from day one at Kamehameha regarding attitudes towards hula—though Hawaiian language was officially banned at Kamehameha, it was never completely rejected. Indeed a cynic—or a careful historian—might detect an increase in the lip-service paid “things Hawaiian” at a rate roughly equivalent to the actual decrease in authentic “Hawaiian things” at Kamehameha. The word tokenism creeps into our vocabulary when speaking of these years.

By 1900, for example, students were permitted, even encouraged to participate in non-and extra-curricular opportunities to learn and practice their native heritage. Kamehameha School for Girl’s students took short, off-campus excursions to the surrounding mountains where they sang Hawaiian songs and danced hula, though in sitting position we may presume. The school newspaper of the time, “The Blue and White,” often had articles, in Hawaiian occasionally, highlighting or explaining Hawaiian music and legends. Students from the boys’ and girls’ schools built and entered a float depicting kapa making in the fifth annual Floral Parade of Honolulu. They won the grand prize for Best Decorated Float.

In KS music classes, Hawaiian songs were taught alongside American and European compositions. Well-known composer and alumnus, Charles E. King, taught music at the schools from 1900 through 1902. In his teaching, he placed special emphasis on Hawaiian songs and melodies. Hawaiian mele were practiced and performed for the annual Founder’s Day.

Guest speakers (usually not Hawaiian) addressed the students, encouraging them to practice their culture and language.

For example, on March 22, 1902, the “Blue and White” reported: “On Friday evening Mr. Frank Archer of Pearl City delivered a fine address to the girls in Hawaiian. His subject was ‘Children, Obey Your Parents!’ His points were beautifully expressed and held the attention of every pupil.”

A year later “The Blue and White” reported that “On Feb. 28, 1903, a missionary meeting, conducted by Rev. O. Gulick was held in our Assembly Hall. He told us of the missionary work that is being done among the Japanese on these Islands and also about some of the customs and characteristics of the Japanese. He spoke first in English and, at the close, in Hawaiian. He reminded us of the beauty of the Hawaiian language and that we must not forget our mother tongue.”

Reverend Gulick, in 1908, again spoke to the first grade students at the girls’ school. He closed once again by reminding the children of the beauty of the Hawaiian language, and that they must not forget their mother tongue.

The comment to me almost gratuitously belies the horrific reality of the context of the day. In 1908, all around Hawai‘i, including Kamehameha, first graders were being whacked, yelled at and kept after school for speaking their native tongue in the classroom and on the playground.

The mixture of messages is mind-boggling to us: don’t forget your mother tongue and for sure don’t you dare speak it while at Kamehameha! And we know from kūpuna that the slow pounding in of the unworthiness of Hawaiianess was soul-wrenching for Hawaiian youth.

One kupuna and keiki of those days, Gladys Brandt, in interview late in life, remembered bitterly the sense of shame she felt at being Hawaiian. She was born in 1906 to David Kanuha, who was the tailor at the Boys’ School, and Esther Staines, who was in the first KSG graduating class. As a young girl observing the students, Gladys noticed that they were using lemon juice to rub out the stains from their white dresses, the uniform of their day. The impressionable Gladys sneaked a couple of lemons and, in her hiding place, rubbed the juice hard into her skin. To lighten it. To whiten it. Her shame was not just skin deep. It dug bone deep. It dug down Hawaiian soul deep.

In the early 1920s, the advent of Song Contest provided two or more Hawaiian songs per student per year. We don’t have statistics on this, but we think that very few students by now had even at best more than a meager understanding of their native language. Thus begins a long tradition at Kamehameha of native children singing beautiful Hawaiian songs of which they have little or no understanding. A tradition that extends through most of the schooling years of those seated here tonight, and, to a certain extent, continues today.

Publicly, attitudes toward Hawaiian were often tolerant: one-time principal and teacher at Kamehameha School for Boys, Uldrick Thompson, in a 1920-campus presentation, reminded the students of the beauty and intelligence of the Hawaiian language, culture, and people.

“Hawaiian language was allowed only in the laundry room on laundry days at Kamehameha School for Girls.”

Privately, back in the dorms, attitudes were hardly so upbeat: Zena Schuman in interview some ten years ago, described how Hawaiian language was allowed only in the laundry room on laundry days at KSG. She also described how, on Saturday evenings, having posted lookouts down the hallways and near the front steps, the young women would line up on the beautiful double-curved stairway of the old KSG residence at Kaiwi‘ula. The coast clear, they would whisper their songs and dance gently as they stood on the dark wood stairs.

But there was to be change. In 1924 Lydia K. Aholo, hānai daughter of Lili‘uokalani, graduate of Kamehameha School for Girls and Oberlin College, became the first formal instructor of Hawaiian language at Kamehameha Schools. A torch is lit in a culturally darkened school!

This 1924-25 school year course in Hawaiian was compulsory for all seniors. Students received three hours of Hawaiian language instruction a week, using as textbooks the Hawaiian translation of the Bible and the “Life of Lincoln.” The student paper, “Ka Mō‘ï,” recognized this course as one of the highlights of the year.

However, this first attempt at formal teaching of Hawaiian language lasted only that one year.

In a letter dated April 14, 1978, Frank Midkiff, KS president and later trustee, reminisced: “In the early 1920s, I thought it would be good to help our young people learn Hawaiian. So we got the trustees to make Hawaiian language a required course. The students were very interested in it and happy. But soon several parents came in and objected. ‘Why do you teach our children Hawaiian? We can do that ourselves. Before, here, our children were punished if they spoke Hawaiian. They were required to speak English. That is what they need. Punahou, St. Louis, the public schools don’t teach Hawaiian. You should teach them Latin or French or German. The University of Hawai‘i and other colleges won’t give them credit for studying Hawaiian … to enter or for graduation.’

Midkiff continues: “I hated to give up what I knew was good for them. I took it to the trustees. The parents had talked to the trustees before me. The trustees said, ‘Well, let’s make it elective. Maybe that will be acceptable.’ But before long, after it was made elective, several gave it up and before long the courses had to be withdrawn. All followed the parents‘ inclination and the teaching of Hawaiian language and culture was given up for that time being.”

But Midkiff, a speaker of Hawaiian, did not give up. Later that year, he and Dr. John H. Wise, a professor of Hawaiian language at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa, wrote and published a Hawaiian language textbook, “A First Course in Hawaiian Language.”

Nor, it seems, did the students give up on wanting more Hawaiian. This quote is from the KS Archives Memory Book Vol. V 1924-27, but without specific date: “A regular meeting of the combined student councils of the Kamehameha schools was held to discuss the question ‘What should be added or dropped from the present course of study? Lawrence Chang spoke on behalf of the tenth grade boys. He suggested a special course in the Hawaiian language. Abigail Ka‘aloa expressed that the tenth grade girls also desired a special course in Hawaiian…”

One year later, and two years after the first Hawaiian language course was dropped, John Wise was hired and Hawaiian was reinstated in the curriculum, using the Midkiff/Wise textbook. Another cultural torch is lit at Kamehameha.

While Hawaiian language from this date on seems to be finding a modest place in the KS curriculum, hula definitely is not.

In 1929, according to Kanahele, a group of alumni held a fundraiser on campus. For scholarships. The hula was danced. Twice. It was for a good cause. But the principals of the girls’ school and the preparatory school, Maude Schaeffer and Maude Post, were outraged and agitated. They went to the trustees, saying that “dances of this nature tended to neutralize the strenuous efforts made by the teaching force to obliterate certain undesirable racial tendencies in the students.” The trustees agreed that a strict watch should be maintained to see that nothing further of this kind was permitted on campus or at affairs with which the schools were in any way connected.

The young ‘Iolani Luahine, enrolled at Kamehameha during these years, was withdrawn when her aunty and kumu hula Keahi Luahine became aware of the missionary attitudes against hula on campus. We have no date on this but ‘Iolani did graduate from St. Andrew’s Priory with the class of 1935.

Several years ago Papa Henry ‘Auwae met with our students and bitterly reminisced over the fact that he, too, had to leave Kamehameha about this time. Thrown out for repeatedly speaking Hawaiian.

In 1930, Dr. Donald Mitchell from Great Bend, Kansas, joined the staff as an instructor of English.

Dr. Mitchell started a club for Kamehameha boys in 1931 that allowed them to study and practice Hawaiian cultural traditions. Hui ‘Ōiwi, regularly met to learn and demonstrate Hawaiian cultural practices, especially games. From 1930 until the 1960s, the yearbooks of the Schools often published pictures of the club’s activities, most often showing handsome, brown boys in malo, demonstrating traditional Hawaiian games. Membership in the club was by invitation only. Years later, 1941 graduate Roy Benham noted the popularity of the club:

“Oh yeah, everybody wanted to join…it was a good club. I teased Don about that when I went back to teach. He was still there. I said, Don, the only reason you didn’t select me for Hui ‘Ōiwi was that my ‘okole was too white. You know it just seemed to me that you were selecting the real Hawaiian looking ones.”

Hui ‘Ōiwi, 1941: “Oh yeah, everybody wanted to join. It was a real good club.” (Roy Benham)

In the spring of 1931, as part of a new plan for education, Dr. Homer F. Barnes, recently appointed principal of the School for Boys, dropped the Hawaiian language class from the curriculum. In an undated newspaper article from that period, Dr. Barnes offers forth the reason for the change as being a great opportunity for higher scholarship and adjustment of teaching loads.

Immediately after this announcement, the staff at the Bernice Pauahi Bishop Museum arranged for Kamehameha Schools’ students to take Hawaiian culture classes at the museum in place of the dropped language classes. Lectures were initially conducted for seniors on a weekly basis, later to be published by the KS Press in 1933 in a 300-page book entitled “Ancient Hawaiian Civilization.”

Sometime in 1935, several seventh grade girls approached classmate Winona Beamer—already a young cultural torch to her friends—and asked her to help them learn the renowned chants and songs of the Beamer family. Hui Kumulipo, the girls’ club for Hawaiian culture, was born.

Hui Kumulipo came together with Hui ‘Ōiwi a few times a year for joint Hawaiian cultural activities, the most anticipated of these being the annual May lū‘au, prepared by the boys and girls in the traditional manner.

During the coming years when Hawaiian language classes started, stopped, and started again, the Hawaiian clubs of Kamehameha Schools were the only venue for the recognition, encouragement and practice of Hawaiian knowledge.

At one such club-sponsored occasion, Mary Kawena Pūku‘i brought her hānai daughter Pat Bacon up to campus for a KSG assembly and the beautiful girl did a standing hula. Winona Beamer, chafing as she must that Kamehameha girls could not stand and dance but only watch, was furious at what she saw rightly as administrative duplicity. Much to the astonishment of her classmates, Winona stood up and stomped out of the assembly.

Hui Kumulipo, the girls’ Hawaiian club, was initiated in 1935 by Winona Beamer and her 7th grade classmates.

Nona was not your everyday, docile student. In 1937, as a 9th grader she was kicked out of Kamehameha, charged with doing a standing hula. The occasion was the “Trustees’ Tea” held on a Friday afternoon in the area known as “The Pink Garden.” The chant was the “Oli Aloha.” It was this chant that welcomed you here this evening. Winona had known it from her earliest years.

As she walked in, chanting for the trustees that afternoon, Winona’s hand gestures and body movements slipped ever so slightly away from her. Musical as she was, she became one with her chant. When she finished, principal Maude Schaeffer stood up, strode over to her, and announced: “Winona! You may pack your bags!” Winona, had crossed the line and violated the ban on standing hula at Kamehameha.

In a interview in 2003, Aunty Nona described how incensed she was: “I carried my bag all the way down to the gate and I was fuming! Just fuming!” Over that weekend Maude Schaeffer apparently had second thoughts. Winona was reinstated the following week.

During the war years, “Ka Mō‘ï” ran columns on Hawaiian language entitled “Nā Ha‘awina Hawai‘i.” These included glossary and 10 or more sample sentences listed in both Hawaiian and English. A September 1943 lesson is prefaced: “The Hui ‘Ōiwi is sponsoring this column for the third year with the hope that the Kamehameha students will learn more of the language of their ancestors through these simple, practical lessons. A sincere ‘Mahalo nui’ to Mrs. Mary Kawena Pūku‘i of the Bishop Museum for her invaluable aid.”

Conversational Hawaiian was introduced in the elementary and intermediate divisions in 1944. Mrs. Pūku‘i was the teacher. Many of the stories she used were later published in her books with Caroline Curtis.

Winona Beamer from the 1941 yearbook. As a 9th grader Winona was kicked out of Kamehameha for dancing a standing hula.

Reverend Stephen Desha, the Kamehameha Schools’ chaplain, led a once a week non-credit Hawaiian class for junior and senior boys and girls. The student newspaper reported that “[N]ow Kamehameha boys and girls are encouraged to speak and write in their native tongue… The class has been working on the use of every day words and terms. Such things as names of districts and locations are being studied. As time passes, the class is striving to bring the culture of Hawai‘i nearer to the youth of the islands.” Again, this was a once a week, non-credit class.

That same year, 1944, the student paper carried a rather curious message on the subject of hula at Kamehameha. It was from Mary Frances Barnes, the wife of Homer Barnes, Boys’ School principal since 1931. She had learned the ‘ukulele and traditional Hawaiian nose flute, and had studied hula from Winona Beamer’s mother. Aunty Nona would later exclaim: “It just galled me to the quick that she could come and study with my mother and I couldn’t do any of these dances that my mother had taught me!”

When her husband resigned in 1944, Mary Barnes left this parting message in “Ka Mō‘ï”: “I wish I could create in all of you so much respect for this beautiful dance, that you would use all your influence to keep it worthy of the respect it deserves. I wish hulas were danced on every occasion as an inspiration to all who see them.”

It was not to happen legally for another twenty and more years.

In 1946, President Harold Kent assumed the presidency of Kamehameha and in his first public statement offered the following: “It will be my sole purpose to sincerely develop the schools so that they may be of the greatest service to the Hawaiian people through developing in character and leadership an ever-growing number of their youth, and through perpetuating in every wholesome and thorough way the finest aspects of the glorious Hawaiian culture.”

The standing hula did not qualify with Colonel Kent as fine and glorious and wholesome. Kent was the incarnation of the most respectable Protestant Christianity, and the standing hula embodied other Hawaiian things.

In the spring of 1947, Harold Kent established a Hawaiian Culture Committee to study various phases of the culture that might be incorporated into the curriculum. Don Mitchell was appointed head of the committee, which included many cultural luminaries of the day, among them Rev. Stephen Desha, Mrs. Mary Pūku‘i, Miss Margaret Titcomb, Miss Beatrice Mo‘okini, Dr. Kenneth P. Emory, Miss Caroline Curtis, and Mrs. Dorothy Kahananui Gillette.

The decade of the 50s was one of numerous publications—the culture of the written word. The collaboration of Pūku‘i/Curtis produced such titles as “Pīkoi,” “Water of Kāne,” and “Tales of the Menehune.”

From 1951-53 “Ka Mō‘ï” ran a column in Hawaiian, student-authored by Jean Kelly of Ni‘ihau, James Merseberg, William Kaina and David Ka‘upu, at times writing together, at times individually. With the graduation of the “three kahu” in 1951, Jean Kelly continued the series.

Significantly, from 1952 until 1964, Dr. Mitchell designed and taught courses for KS students at the Bishop Museum. The students worked closely with artifacts and became museum guides to thousands of public and private school children who visited the museum each year. This is seen as the most successful collaboration to date between Kamehameha and the museum .

The lessons developed by Dr. Mitchell for the students were first published by KS in 1969 as “Resource Units in Hawaiian Culture.” It remains an important work to this day.

Other powerful—if more covert—Hawaiian lessons were reaching students as well: living, formative lessons that would contribute to the breaking of the kapu on standing hula some ten years later. In the mid-1950s Aunty Nona Beamer began teaching hula classes in the Dorm M laundry room. Standing hula. In violation of KS rules. We’ll come back to this.

The absolute crowning achievement in Hawaiian cultural publications in the decade of the fifties was the appearance in 1957 of the Pūku‘i/Elbert “Hawaiian Dictionary,” the springboard for so much that has happened in Hawaiian language and culture ever since.

In 1961, Hawaiian was added to the list of “foreign” languages available to the students in the two upper schools. “Ka Mō‘ï” of March 10, 1961, mentions 24 students were enrolled the first year and 27 in 1962.

Later that month President Kent noted that “Hawaiian language is now taught in the seventh and eighth grades at the Kamehameha Preparatory Department.” And he added what he called “other tangential uses of Hawaiian at the Schools”:
• “Graces are sung in Hawaiian.
• Hawaiian music is presented by choral groups.
• The deputation teams always read the Scripture in Hawaiian.
• Miscellaneous usages and practices are in effect.”

During this period, Mrs. Dorothy M. Kahananui was asked to prepare teaching materials in Hawaiian. By 1965, a 175-page textbook entitled “E Pāpā‘ōlelo Kākou” was completed. Mrs. Kahananui began teaching Hawaiian language to ninth grade students, the first elective course in what was to be a three-year sequence.

In the years that followed, formal Hawaiian language teaching gained a foothold on the Kapālama campus of the Kamehameha Schools. But this was by no means a widespread, exuberant affirmation of Kamehameha’s Hawaiianess. Sarah Quick Keahi, who taught Hawaiian for 37 years from 1966 to 2003, recalls Kamehameha then:

“When I first came to Kamehameha, Hawaiian was really the orphan of the institution… You should take French or Spanish…the top students didn’t take Hawaiian… And I guess coming from the public school I had this idea that everybody at Kamehameha knew about Hawaiian. And I came here and I thought ‘Wow, that’s not true at all! They don’t know anything!’ There wasn’t anything in Hawaiian studies. Dr. Mitchell’s course was seen as “enrichment,” not academic. And I thought, ‘Wow!’ And so we made this proposal year after year after year. Finally they did a graduate survey and the graduates said that when they went to the mainland, people asked them about Hawai‘i and Hawaiians and they couldn’t answer intelligently. Finally, after community pressure and the graduate survey, it became a reality. Prior to that we had proposed it for our students for seven years in a row.”

By far the most dramatic event of this decade, however, occurred the year before Sarah started teaching when, in 1965, the kapu on standing hula was broken. This is a story of many cultural torches.

Breaking the kapu took a concerted campaign, the determined acts of students, appeals from teachers, comparisons with dance culture worldwide, authoritative testimony from Donald Kilolani Mitchell, and a lobbying campaign at Bishop Estate headquarters spear-headed by Gladys Brandt, principal of KSG.

To trace the beginnings of defiance on this one, as mentioned earlier, we must return to the mid-1950s and Aunty Nona Beamer’s lessons in the laundry room of Dorm M. In interview she recollects:

“…I was half-time for 10 years. There was no Hawaiian Studies department. But the students were asking. And my classroom was in the laundry, in the dorm. With the machines going. You could smell the soap and Clorox. And big pillars in the middle of the classroom, so you kinda had to peer around them to see the students. And then the boys asked if they could come, ‘cause we were the Girls’ School. And I said sure, come on up! So they’d trudge up the hill and only had like ten minutes passing time, so they’d be late getting there, and then have to leave early to go back down.”

A couple of years later, an unsung hero of this story, PE teacher Midge Mossman, began to include hula in her classes. Nona Beamer describes Midge thus in a 2003 interview: “Her enthusiasm was unbounded. And her love…I think her love is just unsurmounted. It really was…No boundaries to her enthusiasm. Her love just surrounded everything she did. She was a remarkable gal.”

And—as a wonderful reminder to us of the power of teaching—both of these young women were speaking strongly to their students about the pride they should feel in being Hawaiian.

When asked in interview if she remembered such conversations with Mrs. Beamer, Vicky Holt-Takamine, class of ’65, exclaimed: “Oh! Very much so! Very much so! I mean she would tell us, ‘You need to be proud of who you are as Hawaiians…We have a very rich culture…We have many traditions. We are a people of, of, of, ’ What did she say? ‘A people of spirit. Of love.’”

Vicky was being influenced as well by another strong source from outside the walls of Kamehameha, a hula studio on Ke‘eaumoku Street where standing hula was taken very seriously. Again Vicky: “Well, when I got to high school…I was a student of Maiki Aiu Lake. And …I had question marks on a lot of things.” Vicky wasn’t the only student who questioned KS policy on hula. Other students who danced “outside” included Kanani Kalama and Louise Beamer, a niece of Aunty Nona.

In an article in “Ka Mō‘ï” dated March 26, 1965, senior Louise Beamer spoke of her love for hula almost flauntingly as she quipped “You name them, I do them!” Because of her skills, Louise was an assistant dance instructor at the Kamehameha Karnival Hawaiian Show that year, scheduled for Friday, April 2.

The Hawaiian show at the old Kekūhaupi‘o hangar was to start at 7:30pm. It was entitled He Inoa No Kalākaua. You will recall that it was Kalākaua who spoke at the school’s dedication, standing next to the anti-hula Sereno Bishop. The article in “Ka Mō‘ï” ends with a cautionary reminder that “all hula will be performed in sitting position.”

It was not to be. Some days earlier, Louise Beamer had performed the song “Kawohikūkapulani,” written by her great grandmother, Aunty Nona’s grandmother. Louise performed it standing in front of students, for which she was firmly chastised. The students were shocked. Angry.

Meanwhile, and backtracking just a bit, behind the scenes that spring, less public calls for change were coming from teachers and administrators in the form of letters to the trustees. In early February, President Bushong wrote, suggesting that the time had come to allow standing hula.

The trustees responded: “Please confer with Miss Nona Beamer, dancing instructor at the schools, determining from her the cultural aspects of the hula which are presently being taught.” The information came back not from Nona but from Don Mitchell. In a letter dated February 16, he summarized the view on this matter from the Bishop Museum: “Knowledgeable staff there,” he noted, “recognized that this form of expression was and still remains a dance of grace, beauty and meaning. The story of Hawai‘i could not be understood without it. Mary Kawena Pūku‘i has said for many years that Kamehameha should teach and perpetuate the very best in traditional hula, including the standing forms. And teach the very best versions.”

The following day, February 16th, 1965, PE teacher Midge Mossman in a three-page, single-spaced, typed memo of her own passionately argued the virtues of standing hula:

“The ancient form of the dance accompanies the chant as the modern interpretative dances accompany the modern Hawaiian melodies. Both are a definite part of our culture. The ancient is not the only hula . . . Both dance forms evolved out of the same culture but at different times and both have equal merit…”

That was an argument from culture. There was another argument. Again, Midge Mossman: “There seems to be a double standard that will be evident this year in our Kamehameha Karnival. The dancers in the Hawaiian Show will not be permitted to do standing hulas, yet the dancers in the Shindig Show will be dancing the Monkey and the rock-and-roll dances in their choreography.”

James Bushong, whose wife was a student of Nona Beamer’s mother, took the broad view. “In Italy, Russia and other countries their national ballet has achieved world acclaim for variety, intricacy and expression of movement. In similar fashion, the traditional hula epitomizes the historic culture of Hawai‘i.”

Kamehameha Karnival April 2, 1965: At the Hawaiian show that evening, students defiantly stood to dance “Kaulana Nā Pua.” thus effectively breaking the 78 year-old kapu on standing hula at Kamehameha. (award winning photo by then KS senior Bruce Lum)

“The Hawaiian Show at the 1965 Karnival. The girls here remain kneeling, in compliance with KS policy. In their final dance, “Kaulana Nā Pua,” they will stand up—a first at Kamehameha”

Newly-formed Hawaiian Ensemble students practice for first Hō‘ike in which standing hula was allowed: Song Contest 1966.

While the adult conversations would continue, the students’ impatience would not wait. The Karnival Show was on Friday, April 2. In a recent interview, Kaho‘onei Panoke, who was very involved in the show, recalls the growing student unrest as that date approached:

“… It was really driven by the students because after what happened to Louise … we decided, ‘No, this cannot go on…We are Hawaiians. Standing hula is part of our culture.’ And then they said, “Well, you can do standing hula but you can only do the motions. You can’t do any body movement to it. And we said, “No, that would be unacceptable.”

As if to heighten the dramatic tension of this historic moment, the students that evening initially complied. Until the last dance that is, which was “Kaulana Nā Pua.” For that they stood.

Vicky Holt-Takamine, who was Karnival Queen, recalls: “We did it consciously. It was a perfect number for that…we didn’t want to sit down and do hula. And I think that Kanani Kalama was one that took the lead on that… saying, “You know, we have to stand up and do this. We just can’t sit down…”

This was a turning point. Huliau. Those students standing tall on stage that evening are for me the many standing torches…Kū ka lau lama!

Emerging out of that 1965 Kamehameha Karnival was the sense in the minds of the students that the stage that evening was the birthplace of the first Hō‘ike. Those dancers would go on in the coming months to form what to this day is called the Hawaiian Ensemble.

The group, which included sophomores, juniors and soon-to-graduate seniors, then began preparing for a trip to Japan. Kalani Cockett, who worked with the Hawai‘i Visitors’ Bureau and had helped out with the Karnival, wanted to take the students on a cultural exchange.

The students practiced several times a week all that spring. Publicly. Right spang in front of Ka‘ahumanu Gym. If there lingered any question in the high school students as to whether standing hula was still not happening on campus, their questions were quickly dissipated by those very public rehearsals. Again, Vicky Holt-Takamine, this time with a kolohe twinkle to her voice:

“We did standing hula! We did Tahitian! We did Maori! We shook our bodies all over campus that summer!”

It was this group, now officially called the Hawaiian Ensemble, which presented the first Hō‘ike during the judges tally at the Song Contest in the spring of 1966. The show included standing hula and was greeted enthusiastically. The classes of ’65, ’66 and ’67 have never quite received the recognition they deserve for helping to change the culture of Kamehameha so profoundly. As for the singing that night, it was a senior sweep!

Meanwhile, rewinding back to the adults and the spring of 1965: President Bushong did not want to have to lobby the trustees. He told Gladys Brandt to do it.

The first one she spoke with was trustee Richard Lyman. He told her to forget about it, which only made her all the more determined to go after the others.

Second was Atherton Richards, son of Theodore Richards, the musical principal of Kamehameha who was in charge of the school when Gladys’s father taught there. Atherton Richards liked Gladys. He used to send his car to campus to bring her to parties at his house on the beach at Diamond Head. There was dancing on the beautiful lawns, standing hula, and some of the dancers were Kamehameha girls. Gladys pointed this out to Richards. Yes, he said, but they were graduates. But then he said yes to Gladys.

Next was Frank Midkiff, the enlightened Schools’ president from the 1920s, old now. It was hard going with him, but eventually he said yes. So did Herbert Keppeler.

Then Gladys got a call from Richard Lyman. He had reconsidered. That was a fourth yes. “One to go,” he said, and he laughed. “You will not pass this one!”

“This one” was Edwin Murray. KS graduate and Hawaiian trustee—the trustee whom fellow trustees referred to as having forgotten he was Hawaiian. Gladys had a hula history of her own with Murray. Not long before, she had been in charge of the entertainment at an event for the trustees on campus. From the way she described the setting in interview, the event was probably held at the Administrative Building on the Lānai Terrace: tables on the lawn, Hawaiian food, and ‘Iolani Luahine, dancing, beautifully. You will recall that ‘Iolani had left KS in the 30s because of the hula policy.

In the middle of the performance, Gladys looked around for Murray. He was gone. She spotted him, went over to him and said, “Isn’t she lovely?” Murray took his cigar out of his mouth—he always had a cigar—and said, “She dances like she has ants in her pants.”

In the coming days, Gladys made an appointment to see Murray at Bishop Estate headquarters. It was a fiasco. Murray grumbled he had no idea that she had come to Kamehameha to promote indecency. Gladys did not take this well.

Again, in interview: “I just went haywire. I just thought I got slapped in my face left and right. I lost my cool. I was just rocking all over the place. I thought I would use every four-letter word at him. His chair flew back. I said something about the military, missionary ethic and all that kind of dumb thing. I should have known better—that he was my father’s vintage. They were like each other. I was terrible. I went out bawling.”

She got back to campus, and there was a message to call Murray. “I thought I was being fired. So I thought, well, I hope Kaua‘i will give me a job.” She phoned him. “He called me ‘woman.’ I will never forget that. ‘Woman!’ he said, ‘I got a table for my family, and if those girls wiggle too much, you know where you’ll be!’ And bang went the phone.”

Gladys dried her eyes, blew her nose. Murray had booked a table for the annual Holokū Ball at the Royal Hawaiian Hotel and now the girls would dance.

The evening was a huge success, applause and more applause after each of the dances. Murray was there. He sat through it. Next day the papers ran a big story. Seventy-eight years after the dedication ceremony at Kaiwi‘ula, standing hula had official standing at Kamehameha.

Well, almost. The story wasn’t quite over yet. “The performance of mele ma‘i,” says Randie Fong in a recent email, “was banned through the 80s. An administrator was actually assigned to review the Hō‘ike for ‘appropriateness’ until we decided to do ‘‘Anapau’ in 1988 and asserted control over the repertoire. Subsequently, administrative reviews ceased and we’ve since then felt free to include sexual references whenever and wherever appropriate.”

Echoes of the early 60s when Nona Beamer’s lesson plans were regularly scrutinized by administrators for “lascivious” content.

At this point, for the sake of time, I would like to move ahead rather quickly.

We have included a historic overview in your binder, written in 1975 by Don Mitchell and Nani Bowman which does a good job of recapping some of what I have covered this evening and also tells much of what was happening in the early 1970s, including the very important initiatives undertaken by the Extension Education Division under Fred Cachola’s visionary leadership. Among the programs was the Hawaiian Studies Institute.

Understandably, the Mitchell/Bowman piece does not explore the huge contextual importance of the Hawaiian Renaissance as the dynamic backdrop to the 70s. Just a few highlights:
• The political activism of the day: Kalama Valley, Kaho‘olawe and more.
• The founding in 1972 of ‘Ahahui ‘Ōlelo Hawai‘i the Statewide Hawaiian Language Organization.
• The founding on campus in 1974 of the male hālau Nā Kamalei by KS graduates Robert Cazimero and Wayne Chang, both students of Maiki Aiu.
• The Hōkūle‘a.
• The surging cultural interest in music, dance, paddling and other practices.
• The Hawai‘i Constitutional Convention in 1978 recognizing Hawaiian language as being equal in status to English.

All of this not-withstanding, a Kamehameha honors student, Kēhau Abad, in the late seventies was still being advised not to take Hawaiian as it was not seen to enhance her academic prospects. Ironically, Kēhau had Sarah Quick Keahi as her homeroom teacher all four years of high school! She remembers wondering to herself even as a high school student: “What’s the background message here? That somehow it’s not a real culture and we weren’t a real people.” Shockingly, this practice of steering students away from Hawaiian continued into the early 1990s and is reported not infrequently to this day.

Nothing I can say in the time remaining could do justice to the tremendous contributions of Pinky Thompson. As you know only so well, his towering figure as a promoter of culture spans this whole period, casting the light of his many torches upon us, our school and indeed all who call Hawai‘i home.

As much as anyone, Pinky got us to look to the South Pacific, urging Hawaiians to honor their origins, their MAINland, as lying there rather than to the northeast. In the 1980s-90s, Kamehameha students and staff made many trips to the South Pacific, beginning in 1982 when Fred Cachola took Holoua Stender, Randie Fong and the Concert Glee Club to Western Sāmoa.

These trips were life altering for many of us, Hawaiians and non-Hawaiians alike, and not the least our students. Julian Ako notes that the 1991 trip to Roratonga and Tahiti was for him a first step on his Hawaiian language path, a journey that eventually would lead to two Hōkū Hanohano awards as composer of the year. These trips were a turning point for the institution in that profound changes occurred in our attitudes about our identity on campus and among KS leaders. Huliau!

Another initiative of great importance was in 1983 when a group of Hawaiian language teachers, including KS graduates Ilei Beniamina, Kauanoe Kamanā, No‘eau Warner, and Larry Kimura formed the ‘Aha Pūnana Leo which has played such a huge role in the renewal of Hawaiian language in the community at large and at Kamehameha. I should add that frustration over Kamehameha doing too little to reinvigorate and perpetuate the native language was in part what drove these people to do what has become their life’s work. Huliau!

Sarah’s description of Hawaiian being the orphan of the institution fits until well into the 1980s. In 1985, for example, only 10.7% of all language students were enrolled in Hawaiian, while 46% were choosing Japanese and the rest Spanish and French.

Enrollments in Hawaiian steadily and strongly rose in the next decade. New teachers were hired yearly as numbers climbed to peak in 1994-95 at 902 students enrolled or 60.2% of total language enrollments. Most of these new teachers, including Liana Honda, Keola Wong, Lilinoe Ka‘ahunui, Hailama Farden, Mele Pang, and Kalei A‘arona-Lorenzo, are KS graduates and former students of Sarah Keahi.

Teachers received support from Kamehameha to develop new curriculum and a kūpuna program was begun, with Kūpuna Elizabeth Kauahipaula, Bill Pānui and Violet Hughes visiting classes regularly.

Other important cultural initiatives of this period included the first steps taken toward the design of a Hawaiian Cultural Center, and the three series of year-long study groups entitled “Hawai‘i Kuauli,” designed by Kāwika Makanani.

The controversy of the late-nineties wreaked havoc on the Hawaiian language program. Spirits fell. Enrollments fell. Mandates from the majority trustees stipulated the teaching of “classic Hawaiian” only and forbade the use of the pepeke grammar system and the modern dictionary “Mamaka Kaiao.”

Hawaiian language teachers were defiant in defense of a program that they knew to be successful. They issued a statement saying they would not heed the orders from on high. Several Hawaiian language and culture teachers went on to play prominent roles in the teacher organization Nā Kumu and the founding of KSFA, the faculty union.

The strategic planning that followed the ouster/resignation of the former trustees in 1999, elevated ‘Ike Hawai‘i to a position of central and often-referred to stature in our school community. The words and the document ring hopeful. The actual deeds await.

CONCLUSION
On January 15, 2003, Gladys Brandt died. Her days spanned much of the history we have reviewed here. At the Bishop Memorial Chapel service celebrating her life, and following a bold performance of “‘Au‘a ‘Ia” before the altar, trustee Connie Lau referred to Kamehameha as a “Hawaiian school.” Hers was the first time that we had heard this absolute assertion at such an official moment of ceremony and reverence. At long last!

Earlier tonight, we saw Gladys Brandt as a child in shame, rubbing her skin with lemon juice. In our work tomorrow, let us not forget that image. Nor her words, quoted earlier, taken from a letter she wrote three months before her death:

“My father and mother, like virtually all Hawaiians at that time, wanted their children to succeed, and they believed that to do so required their children to adopt Western ways. Unfortunately, they thought this was possible only by leaving behind the Hawaiian language and culture. If they were alive today, they would feel differently. Like all of us, they were a product of their time.”

Those of us who now carry the responsibility for these days do indeed feel very differently. As Aunty Gladys said, we are products of our time. Yes. Yet while here, as Gladys Brandt also so wonderfully demonstrated in her life, we are called upon to use our days wisely and passionately to nudge, sometimes even thrust, our times nearer our dreams.

Our challenge to ourselves in this work of Ho‘ohawai‘i must be to probe our deepest sense of who we have been as a western school for Hawaiians, and ponder what we must now become, in these times, as a Hawaiian school.

Let us begin by asserting unambiguously that by the genealogy of our Princess, by the mana of our royal land base, by the backgrounds of our students, and by the bright light of those who have held high this culture, we are a Hawaiian school. This is a fact forever. This fact is indisputable and non-negotiable. We need no longer discuss it. We must instead locate together our new meaning, and from this meaning create that which most honors these deepest insights. Our task today is about destination; more importantly for Kamehameha, it is about destiny.

………….it’s enjoyable to watch our Hawaiian dances……….it’s interesting how the 1888 article by REVEREND SERENO BISHOP IS NOT POINTED OUT……………hmmm…………

Let our work be strong and joyous! It is far from dark within. Kū ka lau lama! Forever standing amongst us are those many cultural leaders who have preceded us—heroes sung and unsung: Pauahi, Theodore Richards, Lydia Aholo, Frank Midkiff, John Wise, Kilolani Mitchell, Mary Kawena Pūku‘i, Winona Beamer, Midge Mossman, Gladys Brandt, Sarah Quick Keahi, Pinky Thompson and others.

These are the beloved kūpuna of our meeting here this weekend. In their times at Kamehameha, and like you this evening, they were students, teachers, administrators, and trustees. More importantly, more lastingly, they were keepers of culture. As the lasting cultural leaders of our story, they are here tonight as sure as you and I.

You, the cultural leaders of these times, seize the mana! Take their light and their aloha, their hurt and their hope, their care and their courage and thrust this Hawaiian institution forward as they have done before us! Huliau!
“Let our work be strong and joyous! It is far from dark within! Kū ka lau lama!”

Note by A. Gora: although Rap Reiplinger is FUNNY……….he was basically criticizing our Hawaiian Chanting, culture………..he did go to PUNAHOU Schools, a racist, missionary, treasonous based school making more Pirates…………OBAMA went there too………..

aren’t comedians such as this playing the same music like REVEREND SERENO BISHOP……

Hawai’i, January 16, 1893
The Rosy Dawn of US Imperialism

by GARY LEUPP

On this day 110 years ago, U.S. Marines, acting at the invitation of wealthy haole (white) sugar planters, invaded the Kingdom of Hawai’i and overthrew Queen Lili’uokalani, eighth monarch in the line of King Kamehameha I. A day, to coin a phrase, that lives in infamy. Five years later, Hawai’i was formally annexed by the U.S.; it became a U.S. “territory” in 1900, and the fiftieth state in 1959.

The inception of U.S. imperialism is generally traced to 1898, and the acquisition of an overseas empire (Puerto Rico, the Philippines) as spoils of the Spanish-American War. From that point, there was a vigorous debate in the U.S. about the pros and cons of imperialism (usually conceptualized as a policy that the government might or might not pursue, rather than as a system constituting, in Lenin’s phrase, the “highest stage of capitalism”). Globally, the “new imperialism” is usually dated to the 1870s and 1880s. It’s distinguished from the empire-building in the Americas and parts of Asia during the sixteenth to eighteenth centuries by the fact that it was based on direct investment feeding capitalist-industrial economies (rather than the quest for gold, silver, slaves, etc.) From the 1870s, the “scramble for Africa” partitioned nearly the whole of that continent among the European powers. In Polynesia (a region generally neglected by historians, even “world historians”), Fiji, Tahiti, Hawai’i, Samoa, and Tonga were all colonized between 1870 and 1900. The last major Maori uprising in Aotearoa (New Zealand, the southwest limit of Polynesia) was suppressed by the British in 1870.

It seems to me, though, that one can trace the rosy dawn of U.S. imperialism at the very least to 1893 and the Marines’ criminal action in Hawai’i, or maybe to the gunboat diplomacy of Commodore Perry’s mission to Japan in 1853-4, or maybe even to the actions of American nationals in Hawai’i from the arrival of Protestant missionaries from Massachusetts in 1820. In both Hawai’i and Japan, the U.S. sought to impose what today is lauded in mainstream political and journalistic discourse as “globalization.” Encouragement or creation of “free” market economies welcoming exports and foreign investment. Privatization, allowing for foreign acquisition of local resources. “Free flow” of (Judeo-Christian, Greco-Roman, western) ideas. Hospitality to foreign military presence—to insure “freedom” for the right sort of people. This was the agenda of western imperialists throughout Polynesia.

The Hawaiian monarchs, one must grant, abetted the process. In 1821 Kamehameha II, fearing he would burn in hell otherwise, embraced the missionaries’ fundamentalist teachings and bowed to their advice. Thereafter missionary families (usually holding both U.S. and Hawaiian citizenship, the latter graciously and foolishly conferred) came to dominate both the Hawaiian economy and its politics. (As they say in Hawai’i, in the beginning the missionaries had the Bible, and the people had the land; now the people have the Bible, and the missionaries, the land.) Submitting to missionary and sugar planter pressure, Kamehameha III agreed to discard the prior system of feudal land tenure (which insured that the maka’aina or commoners could engage in subsistence agriculture-very productive and healthy agriculture at that) with a system of private property that in short order dispossessed the great majority of Hawaiians, whose ranks were being horrifically decimated by diseases introduced from abroad. He allowed resident foreigners to vote in elections for the newly formed legislature, on a par with native Hawaiians. Fearing the mounting influence of Americans, he even began negotiating with them about the annexation of his nation on terms that would at least allow for Hawaiians’ survival.

This king was succeeded by two rulers, both his nephews, who terminated discussion of annexation, sought to diminish Americans’ influence over the polity, and strove to build ties with Japan (recently “opened,” and an up-and-coming, soon to be imperialist power) as a counterweight to that influence. King Kalakaua (r. 1874-91) traveled the world, seeking to boost Hawai’i’s prestige and insure its independence, in part through a proposed alliance with Japan. He promoted a renaissance of indigenous culture, most notably reviving the hula tradition of dance, which the missionaries had banned. (They were oh, so consternated that they couldn’t crush this pagan, vile, and lewd native boogie.) On the other hand, he traded a reciprocity treaty maintaining Hawai’i’s favored access to the U.S. sugar market for U.S. use of Pearl Harbor as a naval base. Worse, he bowed to the pressure of the sugar planters and agreed to a new constitution (called “the Bayonet Constitution” as it was dictated by the missionaries and planters and accompanied by the threat of his overthrow), which disenfranchised three-fourths of what had been the native Hawaiian voting population.

Kalakaua’s sister Lili’uokalani succeeded him after his death. Her efforts, in response to overwhelming popular sentiment, to promulgate a new constitution restoring native rights and limiting the foreigners’ influence, met with fierce resistance from members of the American business community. The latter actively plotted to arrange U.S. annexation. Their ally, U.S. Minister plenipotentiary John L. Stevens, wrote to the U.S. Secretary of State in March 1892, seeking instructions on how to proceed. “The golden hour,” he declared, “is near at hand.” The following January, thirteen top haole capitalists met to plan a coup, organizing a paramilitary force to lay the groundwork. Its name? Why, The Committee of Public Safety, of course. Stevens, well informed of the conspiracy, assured them that the marines aboard USS Boston in Honolulu Harbor were “ready to land at any moment” to assist their worthy civilizing annexationist goals. On January 13, the Committee of Public Safety informed the queen it planned to announce that the throne had been vacated. Shocked (as you’d be if you were her), she appealed for support to Minister Stevens, supposing that the U.S., which she had visited and much admired, and with which her government had excellent relations, would oppose the overthrow of her constitutional government. Lili’uokalani was a brilliant, highly articulate lady, composer of over a hundred songs, including the immortal Aloha Oe (and even more moving ones written during her subsequent imprisonment). But alas, so naïve.

On January 16, the Committee of Public Safety sent a letter to Stevens claiming that the queen was attempting “with armed force and threats of bloodshed” to impose a new constitution. “We are unable to protect ourselves without aid,” whined the sugar barons, “and, therefore, pray for the protection of the United States forces.” (Shades of Grenada, 1983, when Reagan invaded to protect the lives of U.S. medical students. We should commemorate that anniversary too.) Sure enough, boatloads of bluejackets, America’s finest, were soon storming down Nuuanu Street to Stevens’ office as Sanford B. Dole, son of missionaries, sugar magnate, and Supreme Court Justice, proclaimed a provisional republic “until terms of union with the United States have been negotiated.” Dole became the first president of the Hawaiian Republic. (Compare Texas, 1836.)

Thus Lili’uokalani was shunted aside, and in an effort to avoid bloodshed, she agreed to “yield my authority until such time as the Government of the United States shallundo the action of its representative” But sympathy for her remained strong, and while authorities in Washington debated the pros and cons of annexing Hawai’i, supporters of the queen led by Robert Wilcox (formally an anti-monarchist but now inclined to support the queen’s cause against foreign aggression) quite reasonably plotted an insurrection. (Meanwhile racism pervaded the entire discourse about annexation in the U.S. The pro side said, “Let’s expand into the Pacific in accordance with God’s plan, make money and civilize those South Sea savages.” The con side said, “We don’t want or need any more dangerous, lascivious negro citizens in this country.” Newly elected President Grover Cleveland for his part strongly condemned Lili’uokalani’s overthrow and called for her restoration to the throne. In response, thug Dole—who has streets named after him—criticized Washington’s “interference in the internal affairs” of Hawai’i!)

Wilcox’s pro-Queen rebellion was aborted in January 1894, and on January 16, a year after her overthrow, the queen was arrested. Officials of the republic found a respectable cache of arms at her residence, including 21 bombs (some made with coconut shells), as well as 30 rifles.

[Digression about coconuts and their usage. Many consider the production of pottery a hallmark of cultural advance. Historically, the potter's wheel and ceramic production tend to accompany the beginnings of agriculture; grains and other foodstuffs are stored in and served on dishes. But while Polynesian peoples on the Bismarck Peninsula pioneered in ceramic production some 3500 years ago (the Lapita culture), pottery did not become generally diffused throughout Polynesia. Why? Because intelligent people decided it was easier to use gourds, koa wood, coconuts etc. to serve the same purpose as pottery. Now, the coconut (Cocos nucifera) includes a thick hardy grenade of fibrous husk. It contains a fruit easy to remove, and "milk" from which I recommend you prepare haupia pudding (there are recipes on the net) before proceeding. Then you can use the shell to serve or store macadamia nuts, coffee beans, ohelo berries, pickled plums, dried squid, explosive materials, and so on. Creative, practical minds around Lili'uokalani contrived coconut bombs. I don't know what happened to them; perhaps there is one on display in the Bishop Museum in Honolulu.]

Potential terror-bomber Lili’uokalani was charged with treason, of all things, and placed under house arrest. After nine months, and the sentencing of five of her supporters to death, she acceded to another “forced abdication” in part to win clemency for her supporters. Justice was served; she was sentenced to five years at hard labor and fined five thousand dollars.

The sentence was not carried out, but a fine United Press correspondent, one Reverend Sereno Bishop of the prestigious Bishop missionary family (which founded the aforementioned Bishop Museum, a big Honolulu tourist attraction), a man who had earlier described the queen to the world as a pious Christian lady (which she was, actually) now eagerly endeavored to tarnish her reputation and thereby justify her removal. The queen had been manipulated, he revealed, by sorcerers (kahunas or native priests). She had made sacrifices to the native volcano goddess Pele, and promoted the salacious hula. Worst of all, she was really the bastard daughter of a “negro blackboot.” Pure disinformation, of course, of a type that people who watch CNN and read the New York Times may be familiar with. Queen Lili’uokalani died peacefully at age 79, in November 1917 (that most decisive and hopeful of months in modern history), accorded the priceless gift of U.S. citizenship, and grieving for her colonized people, who’d owned all the land in 1800, 10% of the land in 1893, and almost none of it at her death.

So this is the edifying tale of the overthrow of the Hawaiian kingdom. Greed, arrogance, bigotry, racism, lies, terror, treachery, deceit. The U.S. Congress pretty much conceded that ten years ago, offering a formal apology (Joint Resolution 19; see Congressional Record, vol. 139). “But wasn’t it all worth it in the end?” you might ask. “I mean, isn’t anybody better off being part of the U.S.A.?” Indeed, being a citizen of an imperialist country has its advantages, unevenly distributed though they may be. Having lived in Hawai’i during eleven of my most formative years, I can attest that life can be very, very pleasant even on islands dominated physically and economically by the U.S. military, a tourist industry that degrades and prostitutes the local people and culture, and a declining tropical agriculture. (Sugar operations finally collapsed during the last decade, just not competitive in the global economy anymore. The sugar capital’s gone to real estate, finance, tourism, macademia nuts, Kona coffee, etc.) I fervently believe that Hawai’i no ka oi (There’s no better place than Hawai’i.) But that’s despite the fact that the system sucks. It’s because the land, sky, sea and most of all the multiethnic people are so beautiful.

The seizure of the Hawaiian nation, in any case, wasn’t about improving the lot of a people systematically dispossessed and disenfranchised by the annexationists, any more than the de facto U.S. occupation of Afghanistan is about helping Afghans, or the coming war with Iraq about liberating that nation’s people. It was about more fully empowering the already powerful, and making the wealthy wealthier, squeezing profits out of coolie labor like you squeeze sweet sap out of sugarcane stalks. It was an early instance of U.S. imperialism, supported ideologically by religious fundamentalism and racism, and justified by bald-faced lies. Unfortunately, it’s not even one of the ugliest examples, and probably nowhere near the last.

But best to have faith that someday, imperialism will be all over. The past holds lessons we can build upon, striving towards that end. So here’s to anti-imperialist Queen Lili’uokalani, to rebel Wilcox, and to any well-considered use of Cocos nucifera, or other tropical agricultural products, to abet the cause of human liberation, in Polynesia or elsewhere.

hi Kaohi,

am working on Queen Liliuokalani’s issues…………with others………..could use some help with more people protesting the Depleted Uranium………………

meanwhile many of Queen Liliuokalani’s families exist…………am from two ancestors who fall directly under her as child and hanai child relationship………..premature to let everyone know what’s happening……

the findings of Bernice Pauahi Bishop being hapa-haole, half white also has much ramifications…..

the findings that Prince Kuhio taking an out of court settlement has much ramifications as well……

Oppositions are a must…………..against the Depleted Uranium use in our Hawaiian Islands, against the Akaka Bill, etc.

stepped up research is ongoing…….

maintaining a neutral, non-violent nation………….in alignment with our great great great grandmother Queen Liliuokalani.

aloha nui.

Greetings!

Have just posted the following on Maoliworld.com

There’s much evidence showing corruption of the Kamehameha Schools Bishop Estates/Bernice Pauahi Bishop Estates, Liliuokalani Trust, King Lunalilo Trust, Queen Kapiolani Estates, Queen Emma Trust, criminal claims to the Crown Lands, etc.

Efforts to pass the Akaka Bill continues by Senator Akaka, descendant of documented treasonous person, conspirator of Queen Liliuokalani, the Hawaiian Kingdom and subjects, et. als. whose name was Thomas Akaka.

Congress, along with President Benjamin Harrison did premeditate the criminal assumption of a neutral, non violent nation………..see information at: http://www.theiolani.blogspot.com

or http://www.iolani.wordpress.com

and other articles written on the web.

I, Amelia Gora, have been assigned a Police File and have been sending information your way.

Am still awaiting for the entity State of Hawaii Attorney General who is acting as a Parens Patriae for the Bernice Pauahi Bishop Estates/Kamehameha Schools for an appointment because our great great grandmother and her descendants were provided payments in the Will of Bernice Pauahi, etc.

Sending you information for background purposes and identifying issues, claims that are active.

aloha.

Subject: Personal Opposition and Hawaiian Kingdom Records No. 2010-1500 Continued Opposition to Depleted Uranium in Hawaii from one of the Landowners, Amelia Gora, a Royal person

A Personal Opposition with Land Ownership Interests and Oppositions from the Acting Liaison of Foreign Affairs, the Royal Families House of Nobles of the Hawaiian Kingdom (which did go “under ground” and exists)

Greetings,

On October 27, 2009, a Certificate applied for from the Nuclear Regulatory Commission site was approved through the Filing Help Desk – Josh Phone (266) 672-7640.

I have continued to Oppose Depleted Uranium and documented Oppositions countless time to you an agency which is Not Granted the Opportunity to Contaminate our families Private Properties, additionally it is purposeful that Opposition continue and remain on record due to the disregard of true Land Owners, and the fact that we are interested in maintaining the health, safety of all in the Hawaiian Islands/archipelago, even includes foreign citizens such as Americans and other foreigners.

Much research has been done, which shows that the Crown Lands Owners includes Kamehameha III – Kauikeouli’s adopted children are his heirs, the successors heirs are also part of my/our bloodlines.

See reference(s) below.

After intense, detailed history research, genealogy research, legal research, our Private Properties have been criminally claimed by Pirates, treasonous persons, conspirators against the Hawaiian Kingdom of whom descendants, Sovereigns, directly connected to the ownership of these Crown Lands exist. I, Amelia Gora, am one of the owners, and deny any relationship/blood lines of Jew Linda Lingle, “Joe Jap” Daniel Inouye, and have documented Senator Daniel Akaka as a direct descendant of Thomas Akaka who assisted in the dethronement of our Queen in 1893, etc.

The Premeditation, Piracies by the U.S., England, and the bankers is hereby documented.

The ownership of the Crown Lands of which the intended use of Depleted Uranium is Not Approved. Eviction notices for the military has been given to remove themselves from Makua, Schofield, Pohakuloa, is a real issue at hand.

Depleted Uranium is the cause of many people dying from cancers, DNA mutations, diabetes, etc. See links below.

$500 Trillion Dollars a year in gold coins for rents and leases retroactive since 1893 is also maintained, and the U.S., England, and the Morgan bankers/International bankers/Bank of England has been billed and this is a reminder of rents, leases owed to Kamehameha’s, Kamehameha III’s families, et. als.

Other Land Holdings being affected by Depleted Uranium/DU

And what of the other landowners such as the Kamehameha Schools Bishop Estates who have assumed interest as if it was entirely theirs? Trustees, by the way, are not related to us, and if they claim to be, it can be proven that they descend from conspirators, treasonous persons, pirates documented.

I, Amelia Gora, am one of the descendants of Bernice Pauahi’s cousin named Kalola who has interest in the the KSBE Trust which began in 1884, or pre-dethronement of Queen Liliuokalani.

I, Amelia Gora, also descends from families who are on the Will of Bernice Pauahi, who by the way has been found to have been half white, which means that I as one of the representatives of our family(ies) and descending from Kalola am one of the heirs of Bernice Pauahi’s Hawaiian father and that part of the lands are also claimed.

I, Amelia Gora, descends from Kaaumoana, one of the heirs in the Bernice Pauahi Will who also was an adopted daughter of Kaeha/Kamakaeha/Makaeha/Liliuokalani and finally known as Queen Liliuokalani. Kaaumoana and her descendants are the true Trustees of the Liliuokalani Trust/Queen Liliuokalani Trust which is currently held by thieves, scoundrels, criminal activists, perpetuating a lie and disregarding Queen Liliuokalani’s Will which documents that she did not sign a Trust Deed with Samuel Damon, et. als.

I, Amelia Gora, descend from Isaac Davis, John Young, British persons who married into the chiefly lines of Kamehameha and have the blood of his brothers and sisters, and who are the true owners of Pearl Harbor which the U.S. military criminally assumes – based on a fraud deed of 1876, criminally pours hundreds of thousands of gallons of nuclear waste into the Hawaiian archipelago.

To put it simply, I continue to Oppose all use of Depleted Uranium/DU on all of our Private Properties, and additionally, as one of our Royal Families House of Nobles I hereby add Opposition to support support the Private Property Claims as well, and maintain Opposition in behalf of our families, kanaka maoli, foreigners including Americans, and others living, residing, visiting the Hawaiian Kingdom (which did go “under ground” yet exists), a neutral, non violent, friendly nation in the middle of the Pacific Ocean being contaminated by a belligerent occupier, the U.S., a “colony of the Crown” of England, etc.

I continue to Oppose all use of Depleted Uranium/DU as one of the true trustees/acting trustees of Liliuokalani Trust/Queen Liliuokalani’s Trust, etc.

Opposing Depleted Uranium through genealogies, history revisited, legally and documenting genocide, etc.,

Sincerely,

Amelia Gora, a Royal person and Acting Liaison
of Foreign Affairs, a Representative of the Royal
Families House of Nobles, Hawaiian Kingdom

from Kaohi/Luwella Leonardi:

I’m getting tired of arguing the same argument. The military are applying for a permit to posses Depleted Uranium. To continue the use off in there live fireing at Makua and Schofield. There is no such thing as clean up!! Wake up- Kanaka! They has to be someone out there that know how to keep the Pacific Nuclear Free!!

I am tired of arguing or even hearing some asshole tell me to my face “Military needs to clean up their nuclear mess in the Pacific” how studpid one can get. Take time out and research ‘waste streaming’ there is no such thing as cleaning up nuclear waste. Are we all that stupid! Na Kanaka if the military is granted a License to posses and use Depleted Uranium in the Pacific, they plan to send the first Nuclear bomb from their arsenal to North Korea and Iran.

There is no Treaty Ban On Nuclear it expired! If these signatures are not on paper by April 10, 2010 and agreed upon we are in extreme danger. The U.S. Congress will not convene until 2011 the treaty will not appear until Congress and Russia’s Duma sign the agreement

Small peepee, locker peepee, hurt me..hurt me.. this is not a sports game this is real!!! This is not baseball, nor is this football practice–game over is permanent. We can’t go to the parking lot get in our cars and drive home and have cocoa and crakers and kiss our children goodnight. Once that stupid nuclear arsenal leave Hawaii, or Guam –shit’s going to hit our atmosphere. One that we cannot live in and have happy happy at the beach as once we know.

Stop the bombing and feel Nuclear Free Pacific today! Then take your position to the streets! If not be prepared to die! Bottom Line. Kaohi

Aloha Amelia,

Thanks for bringing this back up got diverted in local objectivity/abstract issues.

In 2001, I was contacted first by the Royal Order than by a women that just came from a conference. She and I went to Women’s Center to xerox the recent published book..I just found it two days ago!!! in my messy files. That night I attended a Waianae military meeting with the information/hard copy back in 2001. ISBN4-88517-301-9 C0036
“The Chugoku Shimbun” story and Photos by Alira Tashiro, Translation by Transnet Forward by Leuren Moret President, Scientists for Indigenous People. 2001
Here is the Foreword:

Foreword
I met Akira Tashiro last summer in Hiroshima, when I was invited by Gensuikin to speak about Yucca Mountain and high-level nuclear waste at the Plenary Session of the 2000 World Conference Against Atomic & Hydrogen bombs. The citizens of Hiroshima and Nagasaki live with the aftermath of the horrific power and annihilation of nuclear bombs dropped on a civilian population and the extreme cruelty of the lifelong effects of exposure to flash external gamma rays and internal low-level radiation from fallout. This reality has changed the live of all those who have visited Hiroshima and Nagasaki and learned not only about the hibakusha (survivors) of japan, but of those around the world in Kazakhstan, the Pacific Islanders, and the Western United States. Radiation respects no borders. It is a slow, silent global mutilator of all life.
In the 197′s I worked as an earth scientist at the Lawrence Berkeley Lab. There the transuranium elements were discovered for the bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945, and the use of depleted uranium (DU) on the battlefield was first discussed. Later I worked at the Lawrence Livermore Lab, where the design of nuclear weapons continues. Radiation and nuclear weapons continues. Radiation and nuclear weapons are seldom mentioned in a climate of secrecy and denial. Many scientists work in isolation and are only dimly aware of the larger project.
In the moment that I stood in the Hiroshima Peace Museum on the anniversary of the bombing looking up at “Little Boy,” I was overwhelmed as a scientist. I realized that engineering and technology had built devices, through the misapplication of science, that could destroy all life on Earth. I saw photos of women with vacant stares nursing dead babies. As a mother and giver of life I wondered how, without conscience, man could destroy 4.5 billion years of life evolving on this Earth. The unbelievably dangerous powers of nuclear weapons have been developed by divorcing science from ethics, a Western phenomenon.
The Chugoku Shimbun, Hiroshima’s newspaper, has published two award-winning series on exposure to radiation. The first book, EXPOSURE: Victims of Radiation Speak Out, is a powerful message about the detrimental effects that radioactive substances from nuclear testing and “peaceful uses” of nuclear energy have had on people and the environment. In this second book, Discounted Casualties, personal stories about DU reveal the unbelievable immorality and cruelty of this new radioactive weapon.
Radioactive waste from nuclear weapons development, mixed with highlevel waste from nuclear reactors, becomes a lethal cocktail in DU ammunition. In recent reports, the US Department of Energy has admitted that military reactor waste has been mixed with DU. The waste contains plutonium, uranium-236, neptunium and other isotopes thousands of times more radioactive than DU. Disposing of dangerous waste at a profit benefits US government agencies and the military industrial complex, while passing the liability for disposal and the biological and environmental damage to citizens around the world.
Tungsten is a biologically and environmentally safer alternative with greater density and penetrating power. DU bullets are pyrophoric and ignite on impact, producing a smoke that poisons life and travels great distances. The bullet fragments and dust left in the bodies of soldiers cause extended suffering, and cruel and inhumane deaths years after the war has ended. DU is radioactive. It is a toxic metal, and the toxicity is greatly increased when combined with chemicals. It disproportionately affects women and children.
DU munitions are illegal under international human rights and humanitarian law. Nevertheless, the US, the self-proclaimed “International Champion of Human Rights,” has used this inhumane weapon on the battlefield, exposing its own soldiers, its allies, civilian populations, and future generations. Du testing in the US, continues to expose unsuspecting citizens and the environment. Pilots at Fallon Naval Air Station in Nevada trained on nearby bombing and gunnery ranges for the Gulf War. Now, the “don’t look, don’t find policy” of the military is concealing the cause of a recent leukemia cluster among children in Fallon. Overseas, the use of radioactive trash in weapons has turned Gulf countries, the Balkans, Viegues Island, and Okinawa into dumpsites for the US government and the radiation industry. A single microscopic particle can cause a lethal disease. DU will continue to poison life from the dust and soils of the battlefields and testing grounds. In ten half-lives, or 45 billion years, the radioactivity will become an insignificant amount.
Which is worse, flash annihilation by nuclear explosions, or slow mutilation from low-level radiation, the result of radioactive contamination of the air, water and earth essential to life? Globally, we have been deceived about the health effects of radiation by bureaucratized governments informed by the military industrial complex and scientific power. In the past half-century, 1.3 billion people have been killed maimed, and diseased by nuclear weapons and nuclear power. Millions more will be killed, maimed and diseased unless the citizens of the world demand an end to the proliferation of nuclear weapons, nuclear power, nuclear waste, and the new radiological weapons.
As the bell tolls, we must honor and respect the hibakusha around the world, who are living reminders that we are pulling the rope of our own death knell. Let us thank the citizens of Japan. The Chugoku Shimbun, and Akira Tashiro, for making us aware of the most important issue of this century. And thanks to the veterans, whose stories make it clear that democracies, as well as living bodies, can develop malignancies.

I’m so heartbroken because Niihau has a super high rate of diabetes and we know why? If only we did not have a ‘war on drugs’ then Dr. Shintani could be giving his lectures alongside the successful “Waianae Diet”.

But, back to my point. Right offshore near Niihau their is a drift zone and the military and their little boy club countries dump nuclear waste into that drift zone. I learned this in the late 70s when the Nuclear Free Pacific was at it’s high.

As Leuren says, “DU causes diabetes”

My email was compromised and google won’t give it back.

It’s sad that many sit on the fence as silent supporters and watch from the sidelines without being active. For some it’s a threat to the jobs they hold; much like the situation after the U.S. invasion who set up their puppet government under belligerent occupation. Then we have the case of some that maintain a defeatist attitude and hopelessness that feel whatever they do, the U.S. and its citizens will just do as they please no matter what we say.

Sometimes we dominate the discussions that could deter others from participating. The problem is finding that happy medium that encourage others to participate. We, “old-timers”, need to find ways to encourage others to give input without they feeling disenfranchised and shut-out. We need to work on outreach to have them participating with out feeling intimidated. Any ideas?

I really appreciate all who have been attempting to educate, encourage activism, and make people aware of the issues , especially those that directly affect us. I feel we need to attack issues separately to discus rather than mix them up in one discussion or forum which might distract from the main issue. Sometimes it can be overwhelming for the neophytes to join in who may find it intimidating.

For me, I have no problem dealing with the multi-layered issues that interweave; but those just entering this vibrant discussion or forum may be reluctant in responding and don’t know how to break in or are too shy. How can we create an interest for them to respond and prod them to participate?

hi Tane,

Some call these important finds “revisionist history” and they love it……….

Some call it hidden information and they love it………….

Some/Most get somewhat angry due to the lies, propaganda, indoctrination……and love the “new” info…….

The bottom line is that the premeditation by treasonous persons/pirates supported by the U.S. are issues that results in the knowledge that kanaka maoli/aboriginal Hawaiians still own their ancestral lands………..the intent is for everyone to copy, print and keep the documents with their land documents, etc.

A significant number of Hawaiians are returning to their ancestral lands or being given the support thru protective orders, documents, papers to protect our families properties, etc.

Perhaps the following article will make many understand where I’m coming from as well……..this is just one of the articles that have really pissed me off in the past………….and could probably be used for discussion purposes as well…………….aloha.

I name this article “ANIMOSITIES” — read about how Sereno Bishop wrote that those who did hula and kahuna were “venomous reptiles who need to be exterminated”…………pissed me off…does it piss you off too? issues of genocide here, especially since Sereno Bishop was raised by Amamalua and her husband Kaleikini, the families of the Makekau’s, the Kawananakoa’s, et. als.

Suppression of Hawaiian Culture at Kamehameha Schools
Author:
Kawika Eyre
Month:
01
Year:
2004

Kāwika Eyre teaches Hawaiian language at Kamehameha Schools Kapālama campus high school. For the past two years he has been on reassignment conducting an oral history project relating to the KS controversy of the 1990s. Some 230 interviews are now stored in the KS Archives, covering all aspects of those times. Kāwika is a member of the Hawaiian Cultural Center Project Committee and a representative of Nā Kumu o Kamehameha. The following article is a speech Eyre gave at a retreat for members of Hui Ho‘ohawai‘i in January of 2004.

Aloha pumehana kākou e nā hoa makamaka o Kamehameha.

The word we are using for this conference, huliau, refers to a turning point, a time of change. Interestingly, another meaning of huliau is to think of the past, to recall what has happened. Coincidental to our topic this evening, Mrs. Pūku‘i gives the following example in the “Hawaiian Dictionary.” “Ua ‘ākoakoa mākou no ka huliau ‘ana.” We are gathered together to recall the past.

I have been asked by the HCCP committee to be our guide on this journey, this huliau ‘ana, that we may know something of whom we have been as we seek a path into our future. Several people have helped me as readers. Their suggestions and enthusiasm have been invaluable. Thank you Randie Fong, Janet Zisk, Ke‘ala Kwan, Nona Beamer and Dale Noble.

Much of the material I will present tonight was gathered during my recent two-year reassignment—as requested by Nā Kumu o Kamehameha and supported in part by a grant from the Parrent Fund. I was asked to interview people and write about the controversy of the mid-to-late 90s. Some of the material that follows is excerpted directly from a manuscript in progress. Much of it traces to archival sources. I am indebted to George Kanahele, Loring Hudson, the staff of KS publications over the years, and others. As they all have affirmed by their work, in our effort to understand ourselves, we must look to our past. Huliau.

In most ways our past begins with Pauahi. Surely the most quoted passage of Pauahi’s Will reads:

“I desire my trustees to provide first and chiefly a good education in the common English branches, and also instruction in morals and in such useful knowledge as may tend to make good and industrious men and women…”

Many have wondered and some have spoken much about what Pauahi may have meant by her words, “providing a good education in the common English branches.”

In Pauahi’s final years of life, 150 or 57% of the schools in Hawai‘i were conducted completely in Hawaiian, primarily using non-Hawaiian content from the curriculum of the common English school. Those of us working in Hawaiian have all studied the anatomy books, the math books, the geography books of this period, most—if not all—taken from the “common English branches” of the day and translated into Hawaiian. But by content, it was “common English branches.”

We might remind ourselves as well of Pauahi’s close relationship to her cousin Princess Ruth Ke‘elikōlani, a physically stern but warm-hearted woman, now widely admired for her staunch, steadfast support of Hawaiian language and culture. The few samples we have of Pauahi’s handwritten Hawaiian come from her letters to Ruth, who refused to use English.

Gladys Brandt: “My father and mother, like virtually all Hawaiians at that time, wanted their children to succeed, and they believed that to do so required their children to adopt Western ways. Unfortunately, they thought this was possible only by leaving behind the Hawaiian language and culture. If they were alive today, they would feel differently.”

To be sure, in many native families of that time, there was a growing recognition, resignation perhaps, that English was a necessary condition for success in a changing Hawaiian world. In September of 2002, the summer before her death, Gladys Brandt described the attitude of her parents some twenty years after the founding of the Schools: “My father and mother, like virtually all Hawaiians at that time, wanted their children to succeed, and they believed that to do so required their children to adopt Western ways. Unfortunately, they thought this was possible only by leaving behind the Hawaiian language and culture. If they were alive today, they would feel differently.”

And yet Pauahi, in her day, was praised as a woman who took the best of both worlds, a woman of the highest Hawaiian stature, a woman quite perfectly bi-lingual and bi-cultural.

What I am getting at here is that I find it very difficult to accept the notion that Pauahi would have looked on in any way approvingly at what was happening to Hawaiian language and culture at Kamehameha in those first years of her schools. That violence against the Hawaiian world strikes us today as unpardonable. Yet both Pauahi and the will remain silent on these matters: she left no guidelines for the fledgling school. She died before she could know.

Let’s go back in time to those first days at Kamehameha.

On November 4, 1887, King Kalākaua, then the embodiment of Hawaiian cultural revitalization—not the least hula—spoke to the students in Hawaiian at the dedication of Kamehameha School for Boys.

Standing near him and giving the formal prayer that day was Reverend Sereno E. Bishop, no relation to Charles Bishop, but the annexationist son of a missionary. Sereno Bishop was a haole who could speak Hawaiian. He prayed for the Kamehameha boys in their language. In English, whenever the subject of hula came up—and Bishop brought it up often in his Christian newspaper “The Friend”—he ranted.

So from the very start, standing side by side at that opening ceremony, were profoundly opposing views of something so quintessentially Hawaiian as the hula. Kalākaua would celebrate hula; Sereno Bishop would denigrate hula. Confusion, conflict of cultural identity from day one at Kamehameha School. And the issue of hula will run like a jolting live wire through the Kamehameha story.

Kalākaua and the Rev. Bishop stood that day at Kaiwi‘ula. Today, as we know, the Bishop Museum is located on this site. The name Kaiwi‘ula, which translates as “the red bone,” refers to a battle fought on these fields long, long ago.

In the early years of Kamehameha Schools, another battle was to be fought at this site, this one a quiet clash of cultures where teachers and staff of the young school purposely and relentlessly sought to stamp out the native language and all aspects of Hawaiian ways.

The first principal at Kamehameha was a man named William Oleson. The Reverend Oleson was a fervid democrat with no time for monarchies, and he had a particularly low opinion of Kalākaua as a king, saying that he ruled by bribery, corruption, lasciviousness, sorcery and tyranny. In the same year that Oleson took charge at Kamehameha, 1887, he was a member of a haole committee that forced a rewritten constitution on Kalākaua, sharply limiting the king’s power. This was the Bayonet Constitution.

One of the first orders William Oleson gave at Kamehameha was to ban the Hawaiian language. English was the only language accepted for the work time and play time of Pauahi’s school. Hawaiian was forbidden in the classroom and on the playing fields, and the boys were punished if they were heard speaking the language of their families. This was in the late 1880s and early 90s, which means that Hawaiian was banned at Kamehameha well before it was officially outlawed at Hawai‘i’s public and private schools in 1896, three years after the overthrow.

“…teachers and staff of the young school purposely and relentlessly sought to stamp out the native language and all aspects of Hawaiian ways.”

The anti-Hawaiian campaign at Kaiwi‘ula was relentless. Non-stop. For decades. Every teacher was to be a teacher of English. Every incentive was offered, every tactic tried: slogans, “Better English Weeks,” encouragement to sit in the library and read books, praise and prizes for pronunciation, speech contests, oratory at assemblies, discussion groups, debating societies, drama clubs, off-campus passes, free periods, an “English holiday” for anyone not caught talking “native” for a month.

Within three years, student compliance was showing in school statistics. The October 1890 issue of the KS publication “Handicraft” reported: “Thus far the average number of those who have earned the Holiday has been sixty-five percent of the number enrolled.”

In 1894, William Oleson co-wrote a book with a title that said much about this man who had led Kamehameha Schools. Its title: “Picturesque Hawai‘i: A Charming Description of Her Unique History, Strange People, Exquisite Climate, Wondrous Volcanoes, Luxurious Productions, Beautiful Cities, Corrupt Monarchy, Recent Revolution and Provisional Government.” His co-author was James L. Stevens, United States minister to Hawai‘i in 1893, who had ordered American troops ashore, effectively guaranteeing the overthrow of the monarchy. Stevens wanted nothing more or less than annexation, and Oleson was with him all the way.

Let us be clear: The boys under Oleson at Kamehameha were not American annexationists. They were Hawaiians, and they were instinctive royalists, reverential to their ali‘i nui. In the first years of the school, which were the last years of the monarchy, King Kalākaua paid a visit to a classroom. The boys stood of their own accord and sang “Hawai‘i Pono‘ï.” When Queen Lili‘uokalani visited and drank coffee, no one would touch her cup afterwards; it was sacred to the ali‘i, kapu.

As George Kanahele relates, following the 1893 overthrow of the kingdom, the boys voted with their feet against this school that was run by annexationists. So many boys left and did not come back that enrollment went down by almost half and stayed down for the next two years.

Newly appointed principal Theodore Richards replaced William Oleson. Richards’ approach to resolving the enrollment crisis was to depoliticize and Hawaiianize the school. He had a good feel for working with Kamehameha boys, and he had a great appreciation of Hawaiian music and language. He put Hawaiian songs on the glee club program alongside Western classical songs, to great success in performance.

That was really the only time in the first decades at Kamehameha when the Hawaiian language was given fuller voice. That, and in chapel at Kaumakapili Church, where the “Lord’s Prayer” was sung in Hawaiian. Other prayers and sermons also were in “native.”

Hawaiian music flourished at Kamehameha. Hawaiian dance did not. Reverend Sereno Bishop, who had given the prayer at the opening of the boys’ school, maintained his relationship with Kamehameha as well as his strong anti-hula convictions. The dance, he wrote, was “one of the foul florescenses” on the “great poison tree of idolatry.” Bishop said hula corroded Hawaiians—and labeled it moral leprosy. This attitude, though more mildly expressed, endured until 1965.

No right-minded principal at Kamehameha would want foul florescence and moral leprosy on his campus. No right-minded Bishop Estate trustee would want it on estate lands either. There were early leases that banned hula along with liquor. And among students it was rumored that language in Pauahi’s will expressly forbade hula. Not true. Hawaiian was not heard in the halls of Kamehameha and, increasingly, Hawaiian students at Kamehameha could no longer hear Hawaiian within themselves: The “Handicraft” issue of March, 1897 carried the following—to us—somber reflection:

Kamehameha Schools 1893: Enrollments dropped by almost half as the boys voted with their feet against this school run by annexationists.

“Five years ago the Rev. Sereno Bishop taught a class of Kamehameha boys in the Kaumakapili Sunday School. Then it was necessary for him to employ his excellent knowledge of the native tongue to make himself understood. After this interval, in which he has seen little of the boys, he comes back to preach to them and naturally he chooses the Hawaiian language in which to address them, and for the same reasons as before. It transpired that a census taken after the sermon disclosed the fact that several had difficulty in understanding him, and eleven boys from the Manual, twenty-one from the Preparatory and twenty-one from the Girls’ School did not understand Hawaiian at all.”

We should not be surprised by the success of Kamehameha at dismembering Hawaiian. Early Kamehameha was essentially an English immersion school. As our friends from the Pūnana Leo movement have so aptly demonstrated, immersion is the most powerful of language pedagogies. Since most of the students were boarders, the influence of the Hawaiian home was thoroughly lessened and the opportunity to immerse students in English optimal. Though the prohibition against Hawaiian was in place for many years to come, its existence grew increasingly irrelevant as the language vanished in the children.

But—and perhaps this reflects something of that same confusion we noted from day one at Kamehameha regarding attitudes towards hula—though Hawaiian language was officially banned at Kamehameha, it was never completely rejected. Indeed a cynic—or a careful historian—might detect an increase in the lip-service paid “things Hawaiian” at a rate roughly equivalent to the actual decrease in authentic “Hawaiian things” at Kamehameha. The word tokenism creeps into our vocabulary when speaking of these years.

By 1900, for example, students were permitted, even encouraged to participate in non-and extra-curricular opportunities to learn and practice their native heritage. Kamehameha School for Girl’s students took short, off-campus excursions to the surrounding mountains where they sang Hawaiian songs and danced hula, though in sitting position we may presume. The school newspaper of the time, “The Blue and White,” often had articles, in Hawaiian occasionally, highlighting or explaining Hawaiian music and legends. Students from the boys’ and girls’ schools built and entered a float depicting kapa making in the fifth annual Floral Parade of Honolulu. They won the grand prize for Best Decorated Float.

In KS music classes, Hawaiian songs were taught alongside American and European compositions. Well-known composer and alumnus, Charles E. King, taught music at the schools from 1900 through 1902. In his teaching, he placed special emphasis on Hawaiian songs and melodies. Hawaiian mele were practiced and performed for the annual Founder’s Day.

Guest speakers (usually not Hawaiian) addressed the students, encouraging them to practice their culture and language.

For example, on March 22, 1902, the “Blue and White” reported: “On Friday evening Mr. Frank Archer of Pearl City delivered a fine address to the girls in Hawaiian. His subject was ‘Children, Obey Your Parents!’ His points were beautifully expressed and held the attention of every pupil.”

A year later “The Blue and White” reported that “On Feb. 28, 1903, a missionary meeting, conducted by Rev. O. Gulick was held in our Assembly Hall. He told us of the missionary work that is being done among the Japanese on these Islands and also about some of the customs and characteristics of the Japanese. He spoke first in English and, at the close, in Hawaiian. He reminded us of the beauty of the Hawaiian language and that we must not forget our mother tongue.”

Reverend Gulick, in 1908, again spoke to the first grade students at the girls’ school. He closed once again by reminding the children of the beauty of the Hawaiian language, and that they must not forget their mother tongue.

The comment to me almost gratuitously belies the horrific reality of the context of the day. In 1908, all around Hawai‘i, including Kamehameha, first graders were being whacked, yelled at and kept after school for speaking their native tongue in the classroom and on the playground.

The mixture of messages is mind-boggling to us: don’t forget your mother tongue and for sure don’t you dare speak it while at Kamehameha! And we know from kūpuna that the slow pounding in of the unworthiness of Hawaiianess was soul-wrenching for Hawaiian youth.

One kupuna and keiki of those days, Gladys Brandt, in interview late in life, remembered bitterly the sense of shame she felt at being Hawaiian. She was born in 1906 to David Kanuha, who was the tailor at the Boys’ School, and Esther Staines, who was in the first KSG graduating class. As a young girl observing the students, Gladys noticed that they were using lemon juice to rub out the stains from their white dresses, the uniform of their day. The impressionable Gladys sneaked a couple of lemons and, in her hiding place, rubbed the juice hard into her skin. To lighten it. To whiten it. Her shame was not just skin deep. It dug bone deep. It dug down Hawaiian soul deep.

In the early 1920s, the advent of Song Contest provided two or more Hawaiian songs per student per year. We don’t have statistics on this, but we think that very few students by now had even at best more than a meager understanding of their native language. Thus begins a long tradition at Kamehameha of native children singing beautiful Hawaiian songs of which they have little or no understanding. A tradition that extends through most of the schooling years of those seated here tonight, and, to a certain extent, continues today.

Publicly, attitudes toward Hawaiian were often tolerant: one-time principal and teacher at Kamehameha School for Boys, Uldrick Thompson, in a 1920-campus presentation, reminded the students of the beauty and intelligence of the Hawaiian language, culture, and people.

“Hawaiian language was allowed only in the laundry room on laundry days at Kamehameha School for Girls.”

Privately, back in the dorms, attitudes were hardly so upbeat: Zena Schuman in interview some ten years ago, described how Hawaiian language was allowed only in the laundry room on laundry days at KSG. She also described how, on Saturday evenings, having posted lookouts down the hallways and near the front steps, the young women would line up on the beautiful double-curved stairway of the old KSG residence at Kaiwi‘ula. The coast clear, they would whisper their songs and dance gently as they stood on the dark wood stairs.

But there was to be change. In 1924 Lydia K. Aholo, hānai daughter of Lili‘uokalani, graduate of Kamehameha School for Girls and Oberlin College, became the first formal instructor of Hawaiian language at Kamehameha Schools. A torch is lit in a culturally darkened school!

This 1924-25 school year course in Hawaiian was compulsory for all seniors. Students received three hours of Hawaiian language instruction a week, using as textbooks the Hawaiian translation of the Bible and the “Life of Lincoln.” The student paper, “Ka Mō‘ï,” recognized this course as one of the highlights of the year.

However, this first attempt at formal teaching of Hawaiian language lasted only that one year.

In a letter dated April 14, 1978, Frank Midkiff, KS president and later trustee, reminisced: “In the early 1920s, I thought it would be good to help our young people learn Hawaiian. So we got the trustees to make Hawaiian language a required course. The students were very interested in it and happy. But soon several parents came in and objected. ‘Why do you teach our children Hawaiian? We can do that ourselves. Before, here, our children were punished if they spoke Hawaiian. They were required to speak English. That is what they need. Punahou, St. Louis, the public schools don’t teach Hawaiian. You should teach them Latin or French or German. The University of Hawai‘i and other colleges won’t give them credit for studying Hawaiian … to enter or for graduation.’

Midkiff continues: “I hated to give up what I knew was good for them. I took it to the trustees. The parents had talked to the trustees before me. The trustees said, ‘Well, let’s make it elective. Maybe that will be acceptable.’ But before long, after it was made elective, several gave it up and before long the courses had to be withdrawn. All followed the parents‘ inclination and the teaching of Hawaiian language and culture was given up for that time being.”

But Midkiff, a speaker of Hawaiian, did not give up. Later that year, he and Dr. John H. Wise, a professor of Hawaiian language at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa, wrote and published a Hawaiian language textbook, “A First Course in Hawaiian Language.”

Nor, it seems, did the students give up on wanting more Hawaiian. This quote is from the KS Archives Memory Book Vol. V 1924-27, but without specific date: “A regular meeting of the combined student councils of the Kamehameha schools was held to discuss the question ‘What should be added or dropped from the present course of study? Lawrence Chang spoke on behalf of the tenth grade boys. He suggested a special course in the Hawaiian language. Abigail Ka‘aloa expressed that the tenth grade girls also desired a special course in Hawaiian…”

One year later, and two years after the first Hawaiian language course was dropped, John Wise was hired and Hawaiian was reinstated in the curriculum, using the Midkiff/Wise textbook. Another cultural torch is lit at Kamehameha.

While Hawaiian language from this date on seems to be finding a modest place in the KS curriculum, hula definitely is not.

In 1929, according to Kanahele, a group of alumni held a fundraiser on campus. For scholarships. The hula was danced. Twice. It was for a good cause. But the principals of the girls’ school and the preparatory school, Maude Schaeffer and Maude Post, were outraged and agitated. They went to the trustees, saying that “dances of this nature tended to neutralize the strenuous efforts made by the teaching force to obliterate certain undesirable racial tendencies in the students.” The trustees agreed that a strict watch should be maintained to see that nothing further of this kind was permitted on campus or at affairs with which the schools were in any way connected.

The young ‘Iolani Luahine, enrolled at Kamehameha during these years, was withdrawn when her aunty and kumu hula Keahi Luahine became aware of the missionary attitudes against hula on campus. We have no date on this but ‘Iolani did graduate from St. Andrew’s Priory with the class of 1935.

Several years ago Papa Henry ‘Auwae met with our students and bitterly reminisced over the fact that he, too, had to leave Kamehameha about this time. Thrown out for repeatedly speaking Hawaiian.

In 1930, Dr. Donald Mitchell from Great Bend, Kansas, joined the staff as an instructor of English.

Dr. Mitchell started a club for Kamehameha boys in 1931 that allowed them to study and practice Hawaiian cultural traditions. Hui ‘Ōiwi, regularly met to learn and demonstrate Hawaiian cultural practices, especially games. From 1930 until the 1960s, the yearbooks of the Schools often published pictures of the club’s activities, most often showing handsome, brown boys in malo, demonstrating traditional Hawaiian games. Membership in the club was by invitation only. Years later, 1941 graduate Roy Benham noted the popularity of the club:

“Oh yeah, everybody wanted to join…it was a good club. I teased Don about that when I went back to teach. He was still there. I said, Don, the only reason you didn’t select me for Hui ‘Ōiwi was that my ‘okole was too white. You know it just seemed to me that you were selecting the real Hawaiian looking ones.”

Hui ‘Ōiwi, 1941: “Oh yeah, everybody wanted to join. It was a real good club.” (Roy Benham)

In the spring of 1931, as part of a new plan for education, Dr. Homer F. Barnes, recently appointed principal of the School for Boys, dropped the Hawaiian language class from the curriculum. In an undated newspaper article from that period, Dr. Barnes offers forth the reason for the change as being a great opportunity for higher scholarship and adjustment of teaching loads.

Immediately after this announcement, the staff at the Bernice Pauahi Bishop Museum arranged for Kamehameha Schools’ students to take Hawaiian culture classes at the museum in place of the dropped language classes. Lectures were initially conducted for seniors on a weekly basis, later to be published by the KS Press in 1933 in a 300-page book entitled “Ancient Hawaiian Civilization.”

Sometime in 1935, several seventh grade girls approached classmate Winona Beamer—already a young cultural torch to her friends—and asked her to help them learn the renowned chants and songs of the Beamer family. Hui Kumulipo, the girls’ club for Hawaiian culture, was born.

Hui Kumulipo came together with Hui ‘Ōiwi a few times a year for joint Hawaiian cultural activities, the most anticipated of these being the annual May lū‘au, prepared by the boys and girls in the traditional manner.

During the coming years when Hawaiian language classes started, stopped, and started again, the Hawaiian clubs of Kamehameha Schools were the only venue for the recognition, encouragement and practice of Hawaiian knowledge.

At one such club-sponsored occasion, Mary Kawena Pūku‘i brought her hānai daughter Pat Bacon up to campus for a KSG assembly and the beautiful girl did a standing hula. Winona Beamer, chafing as she must that Kamehameha girls could not stand and dance but only watch, was furious at what she saw rightly as administrative duplicity. Much to the astonishment of her classmates, Winona stood up and stomped out of the assembly.

Hui Kumulipo, the girls’ Hawaiian club, was initiated in 1935 by Winona Beamer and her 7th grade classmates.

Nona was not your everyday, docile student. In 1937, as a 9th grader she was kicked out of Kamehameha, charged with doing a standing hula. The occasion was the “Trustees’ Tea” held on a Friday afternoon in the area known as “The Pink Garden.” The chant was the “Oli Aloha.” It was this chant that welcomed you here this evening. Winona had known it from her earliest years.

As she walked in, chanting for the trustees that afternoon, Winona’s hand gestures and body movements slipped ever so slightly away from her. Musical as she was, she became one with her chant. When she finished, principal Maude Schaeffer stood up, strode over to her, and announced: “Winona! You may pack your bags!” Winona, had crossed the line and violated the ban on standing hula at Kamehameha.

In a interview in 2003, Aunty Nona described how incensed she was: “I carried my bag all the way down to the gate and I was fuming! Just fuming!” Over that weekend Maude Schaeffer apparently had second thoughts. Winona was reinstated the following week.

During the war years, “Ka Mō‘ï” ran columns on Hawaiian language entitled “Nā Ha‘awina Hawai‘i.” These included glossary and 10 or more sample sentences listed in both Hawaiian and English. A September 1943 lesson is prefaced: “The Hui ‘Ōiwi is sponsoring this column for the third year with the hope that the Kamehameha students will learn more of the language of their ancestors through these simple, practical lessons. A sincere ‘Mahalo nui’ to Mrs. Mary Kawena Pūku‘i of the Bishop Museum for her invaluable aid.”

Conversational Hawaiian was introduced in the elementary and intermediate divisions in 1944. Mrs. Pūku‘i was the teacher. Many of the stories she used were later published in her books with Caroline Curtis.

Winona Beamer from the 1941 yearbook. As a 9th grader Winona was kicked out of Kamehameha for dancing a standing hula.

Reverend Stephen Desha, the Kamehameha Schools’ chaplain, led a once a week non-credit Hawaiian class for junior and senior boys and girls. The student newspaper reported that “[N]ow Kamehameha boys and girls are encouraged to speak and write in their native tongue… The class has been working on the use of every day words and terms. Such things as names of districts and locations are being studied. As time passes, the class is striving to bring the culture of Hawai‘i nearer to the youth of the islands.” Again, this was a once a week, non-credit class.

That same year, 1944, the student paper carried a rather curious message on the subject of hula at Kamehameha. It was from Mary Frances Barnes, the wife of Homer Barnes, Boys’ School principal since 1931. She had learned the ‘ukulele and traditional Hawaiian nose flute, and had studied hula from Winona Beamer’s mother. Aunty Nona would later exclaim: “It just galled me to the quick that she could come and study with my mother and I couldn’t do any of these dances that my mother had taught me!”

When her husband resigned in 1944, Mary Barnes left this parting message in “Ka Mō‘ï”: “I wish I could create in all of you so much respect for this beautiful dance, that you would use all your influence to keep it worthy of the respect it deserves. I wish hulas were danced on every occasion as an inspiration to all who see them.”

It was not to happen legally for another twenty and more years.

In 1946, President Harold Kent assumed the presidency of Kamehameha and in his first public statement offered the following: “It will be my sole purpose to sincerely develop the schools so that they may be of the greatest service to the Hawaiian people through developing in character and leadership an ever-growing number of their youth, and through perpetuating in every wholesome and thorough way the finest aspects of the glorious Hawaiian culture.”

The standing hula did not qualify with Colonel Kent as fine and glorious and wholesome. Kent was the incarnation of the most respectable Protestant Christianity, and the standing hula embodied other Hawaiian things.

In the spring of 1947, Harold Kent established a Hawaiian Culture Committee to study various phases of the culture that might be incorporated into the curriculum. Don Mitchell was appointed head of the committee, which included many cultural luminaries of the day, among them Rev. Stephen Desha, Mrs. Mary Pūku‘i, Miss Margaret Titcomb, Miss Beatrice Mo‘okini, Dr. Kenneth P. Emory, Miss Caroline Curtis, and Mrs. Dorothy Kahananui Gillette.

The decade of the 50s was one of numerous publications—the culture of the written word. The collaboration of Pūku‘i/Curtis produced such titles as “Pīkoi,” “Water of Kāne,” and “Tales of the Menehune.”

From 1951-53 “Ka Mō‘ï” ran a column in Hawaiian, student-authored by Jean Kelly of Ni‘ihau, James Merseberg, William Kaina and David Ka‘upu, at times writing together, at times individually. With the graduation of the “three kahu” in 1951, Jean Kelly continued the series.

Significantly, from 1952 until 1964, Dr. Mitchell designed and taught courses for KS students at the Bishop Museum. The students worked closely with artifacts and became museum guides to thousands of public and private school children who visited the museum each year. This is seen as the most successful collaboration to date between Kamehameha and the museum .

The lessons developed by Dr. Mitchell for the students were first published by KS in 1969 as “Resource Units in Hawaiian Culture.” It remains an important work to this day.

Other powerful—if more covert—Hawaiian lessons were reaching students as well: living, formative lessons that would contribute to the breaking of the kapu on standing hula some ten years later. In the mid-1950s Aunty Nona Beamer began teaching hula classes in the Dorm M laundry room. Standing hula. In violation of KS rules. We’ll come back to this.

The absolute crowning achievement in Hawaiian cultural publications in the decade of the fifties was the appearance in 1957 of the Pūku‘i/Elbert “Hawaiian Dictionary,” the springboard for so much that has happened in Hawaiian language and culture ever since.

In 1961, Hawaiian was added to the list of “foreign” languages available to the students in the two upper schools. “Ka Mō‘ï” of March 10, 1961, mentions 24 students were enrolled the first year and 27 in 1962.

Later that month President Kent noted that “Hawaiian language is now taught in the seventh and eighth grades at the Kamehameha Preparatory Department.” And he added what he called “other tangential uses of Hawaiian at the Schools”:
• “Graces are sung in Hawaiian.
• Hawaiian music is presented by choral groups.
• The deputation teams always read the Scripture in Hawaiian.
• Miscellaneous usages and practices are in effect.”

During this period, Mrs. Dorothy M. Kahananui was asked to prepare teaching materials in Hawaiian. By 1965, a 175-page textbook entitled “E Pāpā‘ōlelo Kākou” was completed. Mrs. Kahananui began teaching Hawaiian language to ninth grade students, the first elective course in what was to be a three-year sequence.

In the years that followed, formal Hawaiian language teaching gained a foothold on the Kapālama campus of the Kamehameha Schools. But this was by no means a widespread, exuberant affirmation of Kamehameha’s Hawaiianess. Sarah Quick Keahi, who taught Hawaiian for 37 years from 1966 to 2003, recalls Kamehameha then:

“When I first came to Kamehameha, Hawaiian was really the orphan of the institution… You should take French or Spanish…the top students didn’t take Hawaiian… And I guess coming from the public school I had this idea that everybody at Kamehameha knew about Hawaiian. And I came here and I thought ‘Wow, that’s not true at all! They don’t know anything!’ There wasn’t anything in Hawaiian studies. Dr. Mitchell’s course was seen as “enrichment,” not academic. And I thought, ‘Wow!’ And so we made this proposal year after year after year. Finally they did a graduate survey and the graduates said that when they went to the mainland, people asked them about Hawai‘i and Hawaiians and they couldn’t answer intelligently. Finally, after community pressure and the graduate survey, it became a reality. Prior to that we had proposed it for our students for seven years in a row.”

By far the most dramatic event of this decade, however, occurred the year before Sarah started teaching when, in 1965, the kapu on standing hula was broken. This is a story of many cultural torches.

Breaking the kapu took a concerted campaign, the determined acts of students, appeals from teachers, comparisons with dance culture worldwide, authoritative testimony from Donald Kilolani Mitchell, and a lobbying campaign at Bishop Estate headquarters spear-headed by Gladys Brandt, principal of KSG.

To trace the beginnings of defiance on this one, as mentioned earlier, we must return to the mid-1950s and Aunty Nona Beamer’s lessons in the laundry room of Dorm M. In interview she recollects:

“…I was half-time for 10 years. There was no Hawaiian Studies department. But the students were asking. And my classroom was in the laundry, in the dorm. With the machines going. You could smell the soap and Clorox. And big pillars in the middle of the classroom, so you kinda had to peer around them to see the students. And then the boys asked if they could come, ‘cause we were the Girls’ School. And I said sure, come on up! So they’d trudge up the hill and only had like ten minutes passing time, so they’d be late getting there, and then have to leave early to go back down.”

A couple of years later, an unsung hero of this story, PE teacher Midge Mossman, began to include hula in her classes. Nona Beamer describes Midge thus in a 2003 interview: “Her enthusiasm was unbounded. And her love…I think her love is just unsurmounted. It really was…No boundaries to her enthusiasm. Her love just surrounded everything she did. She was a remarkable gal.”

And—as a wonderful reminder to us of the power of teaching—both of these young women were speaking strongly to their students about the pride they should feel in being Hawaiian.

When asked in interview if she remembered such conversations with Mrs. Beamer, Vicky Holt-Takamine, class of ’65, exclaimed: “Oh! Very much so! Very much so! I mean she would tell us, ‘You need to be proud of who you are as Hawaiians…We have a very rich culture…We have many traditions. We are a people of, of, of, ’ What did she say? ‘A people of spirit. Of love.’”

Vicky was being influenced as well by another strong source from outside the walls of Kamehameha, a hula studio on Ke‘eaumoku Street where standing hula was taken very seriously. Again Vicky: “Well, when I got to high school…I was a student of Maiki Aiu Lake. And …I had question marks on a lot of things.” Vicky wasn’t the only student who questioned KS policy on hula. Other students who danced “outside” included Kanani Kalama and Louise Beamer, a niece of Aunty Nona.

In an article in “Ka Mō‘ï” dated March 26, 1965, senior Louise Beamer spoke of her love for hula almost flauntingly as she quipped “You name them, I do them!” Because of her skills, Louise was an assistant dance instructor at the Kamehameha Karnival Hawaiian Show that year, scheduled for Friday, April 2.

The Hawaiian show at the old Kekūhaupi‘o hangar was to start at 7:30pm. It was entitled He Inoa No Kalākaua. You will recall that it was Kalākaua who spoke at the school’s dedication, standing next to the anti-hula Sereno Bishop. The article in “Ka Mō‘ï” ends with a cautionary reminder that “all hula will be performed in sitting position.”

It was not to be. Some days earlier, Louise Beamer had performed the song “Kawohikūkapulani,” written by her great grandmother, Aunty Nona’s grandmother. Louise performed it standing in front of students, for which she was firmly chastised. The students were shocked. Angry.

Meanwhile, and backtracking just a bit, behind the scenes that spring, less public calls for change were coming from teachers and administrators in the form of letters to the trustees. In early February, President Bushong wrote, suggesting that the time had come to allow standing hula.

The trustees responded: “Please confer with Miss Nona Beamer, dancing instructor at the schools, determining from her the cultural aspects of the hula which are presently being taught.” The information came back not from Nona but from Don Mitchell. In a letter dated February 16, he summarized the view on this matter from the Bishop Museum: “Knowledgeable staff there,” he noted, “recognized that this form of expression was and still remains a dance of grace, beauty and meaning. The story of Hawai‘i could not be understood without it. Mary Kawena Pūku‘i has said for many years that Kamehameha should teach and perpetuate the very best in traditional hula, including the standing forms. And teach the very best versions.”

The following day, February 16th, 1965, PE teacher Midge Mossman in a three-page, single-spaced, typed memo of her own passionately argued the virtues of standing hula:

“The ancient form of the dance accompanies the chant as the modern interpretative dances accompany the modern Hawaiian melodies. Both are a definite part of our culture. The ancient is not the only hula . . . Both dance forms evolved out of the same culture but at different times and both have equal merit…”

That was an argument from culture. There was another argument. Again, Midge Mossman: “There seems to be a double standard that will be evident this year in our Kamehameha Karnival. The dancers in the Hawaiian Show will not be permitted to do standing hulas, yet the dancers in the Shindig Show will be dancing the Monkey and the rock-and-roll dances in their choreography.”

James Bushong, whose wife was a student of Nona Beamer’s mother, took the broad view. “In Italy, Russia and other countries their national ballet has achieved world acclaim for variety, intricacy and expression of movement. In similar fashion, the traditional hula epitomizes the historic culture of Hawai‘i.”

Kamehameha Karnival April 2, 1965: At the Hawaiian show that evening, students defiantly stood to dance “Kaulana Nā Pua.” thus effectively breaking the 78 year-old kapu on standing hula at Kamehameha. (award winning photo by then KS senior Bruce Lum)

“The Hawaiian Show at the 1965 Karnival. The girls here remain kneeling, in compliance with KS policy. In their final dance, “Kaulana Nā Pua,” they will stand up—a first at Kamehameha”

Newly-formed Hawaiian Ensemble students practice for first Hō‘ike in which standing hula was allowed: Song Contest 1966.

While the adult conversations would continue, the students’ impatience would not wait. The Karnival Show was on Friday, April 2. In a recent interview, Kaho‘onei Panoke, who was very involved in the show, recalls the growing student unrest as that date approached:

“… It was really driven by the students because after what happened to Louise … we decided, ‘No, this cannot go on…We are Hawaiians. Standing hula is part of our culture.’ And then they said, “Well, you can do standing hula but you can only do the motions. You can’t do any body movement to it. And we said, “No, that would be unacceptable.”

As if to heighten the dramatic tension of this historic moment, the students that evening initially complied. Until the last dance that is, which was “Kaulana Nā Pua.” For that they stood.

Vicky Holt-Takamine, who was Karnival Queen, recalls: “We did it consciously. It was a perfect number for that…we didn’t want to sit down and do hula. And I think that Kanani Kalama was one that took the lead on that… saying, “You know, we have to stand up and do this. We just can’t sit down…”

This was a turning point. Huliau. Those students standing tall on stage that evening are for me the many standing torches…Kū ka lau lama!

Emerging out of that 1965 Kamehameha Karnival was the sense in the minds of the students that the stage that evening was the birthplace of the first Hō‘ike. Those dancers would go on in the coming months to form what to this day is called the Hawaiian Ensemble.

The group, which included sophomores, juniors and soon-to-graduate seniors, then began preparing for a trip to Japan. Kalani Cockett, who worked with the Hawai‘i Visitors’ Bureau and had helped out with the Karnival, wanted to take the students on a cultural exchange.

The students practiced several times a week all that spring. Publicly. Right spang in front of Ka‘ahumanu Gym. If there lingered any question in the high school students as to whether standing hula was still not happening on campus, their questions were quickly dissipated by those very public rehearsals. Again, Vicky Holt-Takamine, this time with a kolohe twinkle to her voice:

“We did standing hula! We did Tahitian! We did Maori! We shook our bodies all over campus that summer!”

It was this group, now officially called the Hawaiian Ensemble, which presented the first Hō‘ike during the judges tally at the Song Contest in the spring of 1966. The show included standing hula and was greeted enthusiastically. The classes of ’65, ’66 and ’67 have never quite received the recognition they deserve for helping to change the culture of Kamehameha so profoundly. As for the singing that night, it was a senior sweep!

Meanwhile, rewinding back to the adults and the spring of 1965: President Bushong did not want to have to lobby the trustees. He told Gladys Brandt to do it.

The first one she spoke with was trustee Richard Lyman. He told her to forget about it, which only made her all the more determined to go after the others.

Second was Atherton Richards, son of Theodore Richards, the musical principal of Kamehameha who was in charge of the school when Gladys’s father taught there. Atherton Richards liked Gladys. He used to send his car to campus to bring her to parties at his house on the beach at Diamond Head. There was dancing on the beautiful lawns, standing hula, and some of the dancers were Kamehameha girls. Gladys pointed this out to Richards. Yes, he said, but they were graduates. But then he said yes to Gladys.

Next was Frank Midkiff, the enlightened Schools’ president from the 1920s, old now. It was hard going with him, but eventually he said yes. So did Herbert Keppeler.

Then Gladys got a call from Richard Lyman. He had reconsidered. That was a fourth yes. “One to go,” he said, and he laughed. “You will not pass this one!”

“This one” was Edwin Murray. KS graduate and Hawaiian trustee—the trustee whom fellow trustees referred to as having forgotten he was Hawaiian. Gladys had a hula history of her own with Murray. Not long before, she had been in charge of the entertainment at an event for the trustees on campus. From the way she described the setting in interview, the event was probably held at the Administrative Building on the Lānai Terrace: tables on the lawn, Hawaiian food, and ‘Iolani Luahine, dancing, beautifully. You will recall that ‘Iolani had left KS in the 30s because of the hula policy.

In the middle of the performance, Gladys looked around for Murray. He was gone. She spotted him, went over to him and said, “Isn’t she lovely?” Murray took his cigar out of his mouth—he always had a cigar—and said, “She dances like she has ants in her pants.”

In the coming days, Gladys made an appointment to see Murray at Bishop Estate headquarters. It was a fiasco. Murray grumbled he had no idea that she had come to Kamehameha to promote indecency. Gladys did not take this well.

Again, in interview: “I just went haywire. I just thought I got slapped in my face left and right. I lost my cool. I was just rocking all over the place. I thought I would use every four-letter word at him. His chair flew back. I said something about the military, missionary ethic and all that kind of dumb thing. I should have known better—that he was my father’s vintage. They were like each other. I was terrible. I went out bawling.”

She got back to campus, and there was a message to call Murray. “I thought I was being fired. So I thought, well, I hope Kaua‘i will give me a job.” She phoned him. “He called me ‘woman.’ I will never forget that. ‘Woman!’ he said, ‘I got a table for my family, and if those girls wiggle too much, you know where you’ll be!’ And bang went the phone.”

Gladys dried her eyes, blew her nose. Murray had booked a table for the annual Holokū Ball at the Royal Hawaiian Hotel and now the girls would dance.

The evening was a huge success, applause and more applause after each of the dances. Murray was there. He sat through it. Next day the papers ran a big story. Seventy-eight years after the dedication ceremony at Kaiwi‘ula, standing hula had official standing at Kamehameha.

Well, almost. The story wasn’t quite over yet. “The performance of mele ma‘i,” says Randie Fong in a recent email, “was banned through the 80s. An administrator was actually assigned to review the Hō‘ike for ‘appropriateness’ until we decided to do ‘‘Anapau’ in 1988 and asserted control over the repertoire. Subsequently, administrative reviews ceased and we’ve since then felt free to include sexual references whenever and wherever appropriate.”

Echoes of the early 60s when Nona Beamer’s lesson plans were regularly scrutinized by administrators for “lascivious” content.

At this point, for the sake of time, I would like to move ahead rather quickly.

We have included a historic overview in your binder, written in 1975 by Don Mitchell and Nani Bowman which does a good job of recapping some of what I have covered this evening and also tells much of what was happening in the early 1970s, including the very important initiatives undertaken by the Extension Education Division under Fred Cachola’s visionary leadership. Among the programs was the Hawaiian Studies Institute.

Understandably, the Mitchell/Bowman piece does not explore the huge contextual importance of the Hawaiian Renaissance as the dynamic backdrop to the 70s. Just a few highlights:
• The political activism of the day: Kalama Valley, Kaho‘olawe and more.
• The founding in 1972 of ‘Ahahui ‘Ōlelo Hawai‘i the Statewide Hawaiian Language Organization.
• The founding on campus in 1974 of the male hālau Nā Kamalei by KS graduates Robert Cazimero and Wayne Chang, both students of Maiki Aiu.
• The Hōkūle‘a.
• The surging cultural interest in music, dance, paddling and other practices.
• The Hawai‘i Constitutional Convention in 1978 recognizing Hawaiian language as being equal in status to English.

All of this not-withstanding, a Kamehameha honors student, Kēhau Abad, in the late seventies was still being advised not to take Hawaiian as it was not seen to enhance her academic prospects. Ironically, Kēhau had Sarah Quick Keahi as her homeroom teacher all four years of high school! She remembers wondering to herself even as a high school student: “What’s the background message here? That somehow it’s not a real culture and we weren’t a real people.” Shockingly, this practice of steering students away from Hawaiian continued into the early 1990s and is reported not infrequently to this day.

Nothing I can say in the time remaining could do justice to the tremendous contributions of Pinky Thompson. As you know only so well, his towering figure as a promoter of culture spans this whole period, casting the light of his many torches upon us, our school and indeed all who call Hawai‘i home.

As much as anyone, Pinky got us to look to the South Pacific, urging Hawaiians to honor their origins, their MAINland, as lying there rather than to the northeast. In the 1980s-90s, Kamehameha students and staff made many trips to the South Pacific, beginning in 1982 when Fred Cachola took Holoua Stender, Randie Fong and the Concert Glee Club to Western Sāmoa.

These trips were life altering for many of us, Hawaiians and non-Hawaiians alike, and not the least our students. Julian Ako notes that the 1991 trip to Roratonga and Tahiti was for him a first step on his Hawaiian language path, a journey that eventually would lead to two Hōkū Hanohano awards as composer of the year. These trips were a turning point for the institution in that profound changes occurred in our attitudes about our identity on campus and among KS leaders. Huliau!

Another initiative of great importance was in 1983 when a group of Hawaiian language teachers, including KS graduates Ilei Beniamina, Kauanoe Kamanā, No‘eau Warner, and Larry Kimura formed the ‘Aha Pūnana Leo which has played such a huge role in the renewal of Hawaiian language in the community at large and at Kamehameha. I should add that frustration over Kamehameha doing too little to reinvigorate and perpetuate the native language was in part what drove these people to do what has become their life’s work. Huliau!

Sarah’s description of Hawaiian being the orphan of the institution fits until well into the 1980s. In 1985, for example, only 10.7% of all language students were enrolled in Hawaiian, while 46% were choosing Japanese and the rest Spanish and French.

Enrollments in Hawaiian steadily and strongly rose in the next decade. New teachers were hired yearly as numbers climbed to peak in 1994-95 at 902 students enrolled or 60.2% of total language enrollments. Most of these new teachers, including Liana Honda, Keola Wong, Lilinoe Ka‘ahunui, Hailama Farden, Mele Pang, and Kalei A‘arona-Lorenzo, are KS graduates and former students of Sarah Keahi.

Teachers received support from Kamehameha to develop new curriculum and a kūpuna program was begun, with Kūpuna Elizabeth Kauahipaula, Bill Pānui and Violet Hughes visiting classes regularly.

Other important cultural initiatives of this period included the first steps taken toward the design of a Hawaiian Cultural Center, and the three series of year-long study groups entitled “Hawai‘i Kuauli,” designed by Kāwika Makanani.

The controversy of the late-nineties wreaked havoc on the Hawaiian language program. Spirits fell. Enrollments fell. Mandates from the majority trustees stipulated the teaching of “classic Hawaiian” only and forbade the use of the pepeke grammar system and the modern dictionary “Mamaka Kaiao.”

Hawaiian language teachers were defiant in defense of a program that they knew to be successful. They issued a statement saying they would not heed the orders from on high. Several Hawaiian language and culture teachers went on to play prominent roles in the teacher organization Nā Kumu and the founding of KSFA, the faculty union.

The strategic planning that followed the ouster/resignation of the former trustees in 1999, elevated ‘Ike Hawai‘i to a position of central and often-referred to stature in our school community. The words and the document ring hopeful. The actual deeds await.

CONCLUSION
On January 15, 2003, Gladys Brandt died. Her days spanned much of the history we have reviewed here. At the Bishop Memorial Chapel service celebrating her life, and following a bold performance of “‘Au‘a ‘Ia” before the altar, trustee Connie Lau referred to Kamehameha as a “Hawaiian school.” Hers was the first time that we had heard this absolute assertion at such an official moment of ceremony and reverence. At long last!

Earlier tonight, we saw Gladys Brandt as a child in shame, rubbing her skin with lemon juice. In our work tomorrow, let us not forget that image. Nor her words, quoted earlier, taken from a letter she wrote three months before her death:

“My father and mother, like virtually all Hawaiians at that time, wanted their children to succeed, and they believed that to do so required their children to adopt Western ways. Unfortunately, they thought this was possible only by leaving behind the Hawaiian language and culture. If they were alive today, they would feel differently. Like all of us, they were a product of their time.”

Those of us who now carry the responsibility for these days do indeed feel very differently. As Aunty Gladys said, we are products of our time. Yes. Yet while here, as Gladys Brandt also so wonderfully demonstrated in her life, we are called upon to use our days wisely and passionately to nudge, sometimes even thrust, our times nearer our dreams.

Our challenge to ourselves in this work of Ho‘ohawai‘i must be to probe our deepest sense of who we have been as a western school for Hawaiians, and ponder what we must now become, in these times, as a Hawaiian school.

Let us begin by asserting unambiguously that by the genealogy of our Princess, by the mana of our royal land base, by the backgrounds of our students, and by the bright light of those who have held high this culture, we are a Hawaiian school. This is a fact forever. This fact is indisputable and non-negotiable. We need no longer discuss it. We must instead locate together our new meaning, and from this meaning create that which most honors these deepest insights. Our task today is about destination; more importantly for Kamehameha, it is about destiny.

Let our work be strong and joyous! It is far from dark within. Kū ka lau lama! Forever standing amongst us are those many cultural leaders who have preceded us—heroes sung and unsung: Pauahi, Theodore Richards, Lydia Aholo, Frank Midkiff, John Wise, Kilolani Mitchell, Mary Kawena Pūku‘i, Winona Beamer, Midge Mossman, Gladys Brandt, Sarah Quick Keahi, Pinky Thompson and others.

These are the beloved kūpuna of our meeting here this weekend. In their times at Kamehameha, and like you this evening, they were students, teachers, administrators, and trustees. More importantly, more lastingly, they were keepers of culture. As the lasting cultural leaders of our story, they are here tonight as sure as you and I.

You, the cultural leaders of these times, seize the mana! Take their light and their aloha, their hurt and their hope, their care and their courage and thrust this Hawaiian institution forward as they have done before us! Huliau!
“Let our work be strong and joyous! It is far from dark within! Kū ka lau lama!”

Note by A. Gora: although Rap Reiplinger is FUNNY……….he was basically criticizing our Hawaiian Chanting, culture………..he did go to PUNAHOU Schools, a racist, missionary, treasonous based school making more Pirates…………OBAMA went there too………..

aren’t comedians such as this playing the same music like REVEREND SERENO BISHOP……

Hawai’i, January 16, 1893
The Rosy Dawn of US Imperialism

by GARY LEUPP

On this day 110 years ago, U.S. Marines, acting at the invitation of wealthy haole (white) sugar planters, invaded the Kingdom of Hawai’i and overthrew Queen Lili’uokalani, eighth monarch in the line of King Kamehameha I. A day, to coin a phrase, that lives in infamy. Five years later, Hawai’i was formally annexed by the U.S.; it became a U.S. “territory” in 1900, and the fiftieth state in 1959.

The inception of U.S. imperialism is generally traced to 1898, and the acquisition of an overseas empire (Puerto Rico, the Philippines) as spoils of the Spanish-American War. From that point, there was a vigorous debate in the U.S. about the pros and cons of imperialism (usually conceptualized as a policy that the government might or might not pursue, rather than as a system constituting, in Lenin’s phrase, the “highest stage of capitalism”). Globally, the “new imperialism” is usually dated to the 1870s and 1880s. It’s distinguished from the empire-building in the Americas and parts of Asia during the sixteenth to eighteenth centuries by the fact that it was based on direct investment feeding capitalist-industrial economies (rather than the quest for gold, silver, slaves, etc.) From the 1870s, the “scramble for Africa” partitioned nearly the whole of that continent among the European powers. In Polynesia (a region generally neglected by historians, even “world historians”), Fiji, Tahiti, Hawai’i, Samoa, and Tonga were all colonized between 1870 and 1900. The last major Maori uprising in Aotearoa (New Zealand, the southwest limit of Polynesia) was suppressed by the British in 1870.

It seems to me, though, that one can trace the rosy dawn of U.S. imperialism at the very least to 1893 and the Marines’ criminal action in Hawai’i, or maybe to the gunboat diplomacy of Commodore Perry’s mission to Japan in 1853-4, or maybe even to the actions of American nationals in Hawai’i from the arrival of Protestant missionaries from Massachusetts in 1820. In both Hawai’i and Japan, the U.S. sought to impose what today is lauded in mainstream political and journalistic discourse as “globalization.” Encouragement or creation of “free” market economies welcoming exports and foreign investment. Privatization, allowing for foreign acquisition of local resources. “Free flow” of (Judeo-Christian, Greco-Roman, western) ideas. Hospitality to foreign military presence—to insure “freedom” for the right sort of people. This was the agenda of western imperialists throughout Polynesia.

The Hawaiian monarchs, one must grant, abetted the process. In 1821 Kamehameha II, fearing he would burn in hell otherwise, embraced the missionaries’ fundamentalist teachings and bowed to their advice. Thereafter missionary families (usually holding both U.S. and Hawaiian citizenship, the latter graciously and foolishly conferred) came to dominate both the Hawaiian economy and its politics. (As they say in Hawai’i, in the beginning the missionaries had the Bible, and the people had the land; now the people have the Bible, and the missionaries, the land.) Submitting to missionary and sugar planter pressure, Kamehameha III agreed to discard the prior system of feudal land tenure (which insured that the maka’aina or commoners could engage in subsistence agriculture-very productive and healthy agriculture at that) with a system of private property that in short order dispossessed the great majority of Hawaiians, whose ranks were being horrifically decimated by diseases introduced from abroad. He allowed resident foreigners to vote in elections for the newly formed legislature, on a par with native Hawaiians. Fearing the mounting influence of Americans, he even began negotiating with them about the annexation of his nation on terms that would at least allow for Hawaiians’ survival.

This king was succeeded by two rulers, both his nephews, who terminated discussion of annexation, sought to diminish Americans’ influence over the polity, and strove to build ties with Japan (recently “opened,” and an up-and-coming, soon to be imperialist power) as a counterweight to that influence. King Kalakaua (r. 1874-91) traveled the world, seeking to boost Hawai’i’s prestige and insure its independence, in part through a proposed alliance with Japan. He promoted a renaissance of indigenous culture, most notably reviving the hula tradition of dance, which the missionaries had banned. (They were oh, so consternated that they couldn’t crush this pagan, vile, and lewd native boogie.) On the other hand, he traded a reciprocity treaty maintaining Hawai’i’s favored access to the U.S. sugar market for U.S. use of Pearl Harbor as a naval base. Worse, he bowed to the pressure of the sugar planters and agreed to a new constitution (called “the Bayonet Constitution” as it was dictated by the missionaries and planters and accompanied by the threat of his overthrow), which disenfranchised three-fourths of what had been the native Hawaiian voting population.

Kalakaua’s sister Lili’uokalani succeeded him after his death. Her efforts, in response to overwhelming popular sentiment, to promulgate a new constitution restoring native rights and limiting the foreigners’ influence, met with fierce resistance from members of the American business community. The latter actively plotted to arrange U.S. annexation. Their ally, U.S. Minister plenipotentiary John L. Stevens, wrote to the U.S. Secretary of State in March 1892, seeking instructions on how to proceed. “The golden hour,” he declared, “is near at hand.” The following January, thirteen top haole capitalists met to plan a coup, organizing a paramilitary force to lay the groundwork. Its name? Why, The Committee of Public Safety, of course. Stevens, well informed of the conspiracy, assured them that the marines aboard USS Boston in Honolulu Harbor were “ready to land at any moment” to assist their worthy civilizing annexationist goals. On January 13, the Committee of Public Safety informed the queen it planned to announce that the throne had been vacated. Shocked (as you’d be if you were her), she appealed for support to Minister Stevens, supposing that the U.S., which she had visited and much admired, and with which her government had excellent relations, would oppose the overthrow of her constitutional government. Lili’uokalani was a brilliant, highly articulate lady, composer of over a hundred songs, including the immortal Aloha Oe (and even more moving ones written during her subsequent imprisonment). But alas, so naïve.

On January 16, the Committee of Public Safety sent a letter to Stevens claiming that the queen was attempting “with armed force and threats of bloodshed” to impose a new constitution. “We are unable to protect ourselves without aid,” whined the sugar barons, “and, therefore, pray for the protection of the United States forces.” (Shades of Grenada, 1983, when Reagan invaded to protect the lives of U.S. medical students. We should commemorate that anniversary too.) Sure enough, boatloads of bluejackets, America’s finest, were soon storming down Nuuanu Street to Stevens’ office as Sanford B. Dole, son of missionaries, sugar magnate, and Supreme Court Justice, proclaimed a provisional republic “until terms of union with the United States have been negotiated.” Dole became the first president of the Hawaiian Republic. (Compare Texas, 1836.)

Thus Lili’uokalani was shunted aside, and in an effort to avoid bloodshed, she agreed to “yield my authority until such time as the Government of the United States shallundo the action of its representative” But sympathy for her remained strong, and while authorities in Washington debated the pros and cons of annexing Hawai’i, supporters of the queen led by Robert Wilcox (formally an anti-monarchist but now inclined to support the queen’s cause against foreign aggression) quite reasonably plotted an insurrection. (Meanwhile racism pervaded the entire discourse about annexation in the U.S. The pro side said, “Let’s expand into the Pacific in accordance with God’s plan, make money and civilize those South Sea savages.” The con side said, “We don’t want or need any more dangerous, lascivious negro citizens in this country.” Newly elected President Grover Cleveland for his part strongly condemned Lili’uokalani’s overthrow and called for her restoration to the throne. In response, thug Dole—who has streets named after him—criticized Washington’s “interference in the internal affairs” of Hawai’i!)

Wilcox’s pro-Queen rebellion was aborted in January 1894, and on January 16, a year after her overthrow, the queen was arrested. Officials of the republic found a respectable cache of arms at her residence, including 21 bombs (some made with coconut shells), as well as 30 rifles.

[Digression about coconuts and their usage. Many consider the production of pottery a hallmark of cultural advance. Historically, the potter's wheel and ceramic production tend to accompany the beginnings of agriculture; grains and other foodstuffs are stored in and served on dishes. But while Polynesian peoples on the Bismarck Peninsula pioneered in ceramic production some 3500 years ago (the Lapita culture), pottery did not become generally diffused throughout Polynesia. Why? Because intelligent people decided it was easier to use gourds, koa wood, coconuts etc. to serve the same purpose as pottery. Now, the coconut (Cocos nucifera) includes a thick hardy grenade of fibrous husk. It contains a fruit easy to remove, and "milk" from which I recommend you prepare haupia pudding (there are recipes on the net) before proceeding. Then you can use the shell to serve or store macadamia nuts, coffee beans, ohelo berries, pickled plums, dried squid, explosive materials, and so on. Creative, practical minds around Lili'uokalani contrived coconut bombs. I don't know what happened to them; perhaps there is one on display in the Bishop Museum in Honolulu.]

Potential terror-bomber Lili’uokalani was charged with treason, of all things, and placed under house arrest. After nine months, and the sentencing of five of her supporters to death, she acceded to another “forced abdication” in part to win clemency for her supporters. Justice was served; she was sentenced to five years at hard labor and fined five thousand dollars.

The sentence was not carried out, but a fine United Press correspondent, one Reverend Sereno Bishop of the prestigious Bishop missionary family (which founded the aforementioned Bishop Museum, a big Honolulu tourist attraction), a man who had earlier described the queen to the world as a pious Christian lady (which she was, actually) now eagerly endeavored to tarnish her reputation and thereby justify her removal. The queen had been manipulated, he revealed, by sorcerers (kahunas or native priests). She had made sacrifices to the native volcano goddess Pele, and promoted the salacious hula. Worst of all, she was really the bastard daughter of a “negro blackboot.” Pure disinformation, of course, of a type that people who watch CNN and read the New York Times may be familiar with. Queen Lili’uokalani died peacefully at age 79, in November 1917 (that most decisive and hopeful of months in modern history), accorded the priceless gift of U.S. citizenship, and grieving for her colonized people, who’d owned all the land in 1800, 10% of the land in 1893, and almost none of it at her death.

So this is the edifying tale of the overthrow of the Hawaiian kingdom. Greed, arrogance, bigotry, racism, lies, terror, treachery, deceit. The U.S. Congress pretty much conceded that ten years ago, offering a formal apology (Joint Resolution 19; see Congressional Record, vol. 139). “But wasn’t it all worth it in the end?” you might ask. “I mean, isn’t anybody better off being part of the U.S.A.?” Indeed, being a citizen of an imperialist country has its advantages, unevenly distributed though they may be. Having lived in Hawai’i during eleven of my most formative years, I can attest that life can be very, very pleasant even on islands dominated physically and economically by the U.S. military, a tourist industry that degrades and prostitutes the local people and culture, and a declining tropical agriculture. (Sugar operations finally collapsed during the last decade, just not competitive in the global economy anymore. The sugar capital’s gone to real estate, finance, tourism, macademia nuts, Kona coffee, etc.) I fervently believe that Hawai’i no ka oi (There’s no better place than Hawai’i.) But that’s despite the fact that the system sucks. It’s because the land, sky, sea and most of all the multiethnic people are so beautiful.

The seizure of the Hawaiian nation, in any case, wasn’t about improving the lot of a people systematically dispossessed and disenfranchised by the annexationists, any more than the de facto U.S. occupation of Afghanistan is about helping Afghans, or the coming war with Iraq about liberating that nation’s people. It was about more fully empowering the already powerful, and making the wealthy wealthier, squeezing profits out of coolie labor like you squeeze sweet sap out of sugarcane stalks. It was an early instance of U.S. imperialism, supported ideologically by religious fundamentalism and racism, and justified by bald-faced lies. Unfortunately, it’s not even one of the ugliest examples, and probably nowhere near the last.

But best to have faith that someday, imperialism will be all over. The past holds lessons we can build upon, striving towards that end. So here’s to anti-imperialist Queen Lili’uokalani, to rebel Wilcox, and to any well-considered use of Cocos nucifera, or other tropical agricultural products, to abet the cause of human liberation, in Polynesia or elsewhere.

LEST WE FORGET –WHEN THE HEAVENS WEPT
The Aliis of Hawaii Nei gathered into their waiting arms, one of their fairest members yesterday when Princess David Kawananakoa passed into the ever green valley of memories. Her final resting place will be the last crypt in the Royal Mausoleum; right next to her husband, Prince David Kawananakoa.
Born in Honolulu, January 1, 1882, the Princess was the daughter of the late James Campbell and Abigail Kaihelani Maipinepine of Lahaina, Maui. She was married to Prince David Kahalepouli Kawananakoa Piikoi, a prince of the Kalakaua dynasty and a descendent of an ancient Hawaiian family of chiefly and royal rank.
In Honolulu, Princess Kawananakoa, because interested in Hawaiian and civic affairs. She was Regent of the Hale O Na Alii O Hawaii, a fraternal organization of Hawaiian men and women; an honorary president of the Hawaiian Girls’ Club; an honorary president of the Kaahumanu Society besides being an officer or member in many other fraternal, civic and religious associations. She was a member of the Hawaiian Homes Commission and strongly urged that those of Hawaiian blood take advantage of the opportunity of going back to the land.
The Princess lived for many years in a home on Pensacola street, surrounded with Hawaiian antiques which had been the possessions of King Kalakaua and Queen Kapiolani, priceless souvenirs of the days when royalty ruled the islands. She died in her other home on Judd Street.
During the lying-in-state for a period of three days, the casket was surrounded by kahilis and capes of her family, and members of various organizations of which she was a member, stood watch. During the last hour proceeding the services at 3 P.M. on Sunday, April 15, 1945, the watch was kept by officers of the Hale O Na Alii, clad in their white holokus and red and yellow capes. Giant kahilis guarded the four corners of the bier, two of white feathers at the head and two of black feathers at the foot. Three magnificient yellow and red feather capes draped the casket.
The funeral procession proceeded from the home to the Nuuanu Mausoleum led by the Royal Hawaiian band cadets from the Kamehameha School. As the orchid and lei strewn casket was lowered into the crypt, the band played softly our own Hawaii Ponoi and Aloha Oe, while members of various Hawaiian societies stood at attention.
And so as the rain gods of Nuuanu shed a passing tear, Hawaii laid to rest one of its fairest and best loved princesses.

hi Kaohi,

perhaps knowing the opposition by Queen Kapiolani would tell you something about the Kuhio’s and Kawananakoa’s………………they ended assuming the private properties- not only lands, but capes, other archaeological relics/ancestral items of King Kalakaua’s, Queen Liliuokalani’s families, and some of Kamehameha’s families properties……

the Kuhio’s and Kawananakoa’s were part of the Masons/Freemason’s in the Hawaiian Islands and were supporters of the American treasonous persons………..therefore, they were both treasonous to the Hawaiian Kingdom……….

There’s much more to come……..and many will find it hard to swallow……….but the fact of the matter is that they were NOT Kamehameha descendants, NOT Kalakaua descendants, and NOT Queen Liliuokalani’s descendants or family…….they were Queen Kapiolani’s family………..linked to Kalakaua for he was “uncle” to them…………..King Kalakaua had two children: Kamaka (w) and Kaopu (k) and he had adopted children…..who were NOT the Kawananakoa’s or the Kuhio’s.

This burial ceremony was complete with kahili, feathers, feather capes…………..and what did they have for our Queen Liliuokalani?………….use of feather capes were withheld………….she had a funeral with invitation only and mostly haole’s were in attendance………heard that she was spat upon, etc. wicked people………

Queen Kapiolani is on record as denying giving the Prince Kuhio and Kawananakoa an outright deed. She instructed them to file it AFTER she died.

Poor Hawaiian people………….failing to check out the issues and let themselves be indoctrinated by PIRATES OF THE PACIFIC AND THE WORLD…………that in itself says a lot……….

aloha.

The Value of Hawaii: Hawaiian Issues by Jon Osorio
08/02/2010
By Jonathan Osorio

Jonathan Osorio

At some point, it may be necessary for people to accept that independence from the U.S. is a logical and necessary step toward protecting the amazing society that matured in these islands, and which is now threatened by runaway land prices and an almost total dependence on the global market system for its survival.

This assertion would have been considered an absurdity less than two decades ago, and its growing traction in the Hawaiian sovereignty movement is not simply a result of a better understanding of the history of the takeover. In fact, it may have more to do with a blossoming disaffection with global modernity and the international consumerism that drives it.

The problems, not just for native people but for communities in the Pacific, are not simply related to climate change or environmental degradation. The overarching problem is that Pacific Islanders are less and less in control of our own destiny as we become more integrated into the global economy. Careful conservation, sharing resources, cooperation and consensus, honoring ancestors, protocols that demonstrate respect for one another, and a definition of wealth that is indicated by family relations, healthy lifestyles, and community connections along with monetary security — these are all Pacific Islander cultural hallmarks that have been assaulted by a Euro-American ethos of individual achievement and profit, and a reliance on the marketplace not just for trade, but as the foundation of its values.

The near collapse of the largest banks in America, and the economic crises that emerged from the mortgage-backed securities failure in 2008, have not led Americans or some Hawaii residents to question the reliability of an unchecked capitalist society. In fact, Hawaii’s sudden vulnerability has not spurred a call for a diversified economy and more careful management of our resources, but a kind of panic in the governor’s office and the Legislature

that created Furlough Fridays

in the public schools, a level of unemployment that was unimaginable three years ago, and a public that seems convinced that returning to the high point of seven million tourists a year is the only thing that can save the economy.

In February of 2010, the House finance committee actually considered a bill that would set a minimum price of three quarters of a billion dollars for the sale of several properties controlled by the State. These specific properties are part of the Ceded Lands — Hawaiian Kingdom and Crown Lands — whose ownership has been contested politically and in court by the Hawaiian sovereignty movement, and the sale of which this very same Legislature had agreed to impede in legislation a mere two months before.

The State seems to believe that it is easier to sell these lands off to meet this year’s budget deficit through one big yard sale, than to do the hard work of really managing these lands. No one would argue that this is not a difficult and demanding task. But consider this: in the ancient days, that is precisely what konohiki — the chiefly land managers in the Hawaiian ahupuaa — did. They managed human and natural resources by knowing everything about the land division over which they were responsible. Some of today’s lawmakers may be able to read a spreadsheet, but they have practically no understanding of how to make the land really productive again.

Kanaka Maoli still know how to make the land a treasure and how to give people a chance to work productively. In taro gardens and fish ponds, young people from charter schools and expensive private schools are taught how to maintain an auwai, plant and harvest taro, inventory and utilize the resources of a shoreline, build and navigate a canoe using traditional methods, and harvest fibers that can be used for cords to thatch a house or create an intricate work of art. Perhaps we could call it basket weaving with a vengeance — young people returning to a kind of personal and purposeful creativity which may just save us all. But for that to happen, a form of subsistence and land management will need to be protected by the most powerful government agencies from real estate speculation, zoning that requires urbanization, large-scale agribusinesses that create their own protective infrastructures, the transfer of water from an agricultural watershed, and ultimately, from a market system that would require a profit. What we need is a puuhonua from the market system, and it needs to be large enough and capitalized enough to give people the opportunity to live a life directly nourished by the land.

This is what the pig farmers in Kalama Valley were trying to do in 1967, and what the taro farmers in Waiahole and Waikane were trying to do in 1974, and in the end, it is what the sovereignty movement is really about. We have seen what determined guerilla mahi ai (farming) can do to resurrect taro in urban places like Kanewai and Ānuenue, and to rebuild fishponds along the Molokai shores, where the only government assistance required was that it not prosecute mahi ai for growing taro on public lands. Imagine what a partnership between government, the Bishop Estate, and people who want to grow food and live where they work might produce. Imagine homelessness addressed by a vigorous back-to-the-land movement, with training and housing and employment all located in ahupuaa that were naturally designed for growing taro and harvesting fish.

The Hawaiian sovereignty movement has also been about challenging our assumptions regarding the ways we live with one another by continually asserting a culture of sharing and interdependency with all of the life around us. This is why we must end the military occupation of Hawaii, not just because military use poisons our lands and waters, but also because the mission of the armed forces so fundamentally opposes our values of inclusion and aloha aina. It defends a very particular definition of a people, and we Kanaka Maoli are focused on a much larger society than the American nation. Indeed, we have nurtured and will continue to uphold a community that is larger than humanity itself.

“Imagine homelessness addressed by a vigorous back-to-the-land movement, with training and housing and employment all located in ahupuaa that were naturally designed for growing taro and harvesting fish.”

I don’t have to imagine this part, our houseless actually are vigorously aloha aina, and everytime a bulldozer and enforcement show up all the growing of taro and fishing ‘holoholo way just as our ancestors did 2,000 years ago are destroyed in a few hours.

By our assimulated Na Kanaka no less.

I do have documentation of this houseless phenomenon and I did have pictures and shared this at our latest “LA HO`IHO`I EA – HAWAIIAN SOVEREIGNTY RESTORATION DAY”

Will try to do better next time and take it out of the shoe box.

This statement is so profound. After standing in a meeting two nights ago and last night, I just don’t want to continue to be a part of so much ignorance. Call it bending or stooping, I have no idea because this just goes against my sense of who I am in a large community that have a large population of Na Kanaka.

The first night was about focusing on the community and play the ‘blame game’ for the fire in Makua. The second night was about ‘social promotion’ in Nanakuli High School and be sure that they don’t go on to a four year college or better still enter Leeward community college and drop out. Super cover up for the next 5 years of social promotion..good CYA Kelii.

One light Maile Elementary did meet AYP overall. Not sure if special ed and Ell was left out of the testing, I couldn’t ask the questions because the night was a slam bang thankyou man kinda thing. Regardless, this elementary AYP is an indicator that social promotion bought time about five years. 2014-15 Seniors will have test out in order to graduate, instead of social promotion. The problem is– should seniors opt for certificates instead of a diploma they cannot go into the unions., or other opportunities with a certificate.

So why the concern. We have a huge population of Na Kanaka, most of the scholarships are reserved for the private school Na Kanaka, after that it is reserved for the more aggressive or competitive Public School System. This problem is not new, we Na Kanaka on homestead realized our problem within the larger community and tried to remedy this problem in the early 70s–thus OHA.

I don’t have to go in detail on this site as to what is OHA.

Oh well lets move on and try again, again and again. stop the bombing and stop the Akaka Bill Much love and aloha

hi Kaohi, Jon Osorio (a friend of family members),

thanks for posting this……..but I must say that the educational system, namely the University of Hawaii at Manoa’s professors over time have been at fault for promoting, maintaining the lies, the frauds, deceit, propaganda and need to STOP IT, QUIT IT, and start harping the NEW INFORMATION discovered through intense research……..

events held at the schools pertaining to the white’s version of history is a crime in itself…………………………………to disregard the facts that all that is now happening is a direct result of the REVISITING of HISTORICAL EVENTS affecting our Hawaiian people, the facts that Royal Families exist is not to be disregarded and seen as a political issue…………the failure to call a snake a snake, a pirate a pirate, a white-collar criminal a white collar criminal, etc. does not promote TRUTH of many who thirst for knowledge, want to know what happened……..not just a parrotted White Man history of the account of documented INJUSTICES………….the crimes of the U.S. against land owners who are PEOPLE OF COLOR, the criminal assumption/Piracy(ies) of neutral, non-violent, friendly peoples who did no wrong is proof of the TERROR(ists) moves against our ancient people.. …..and which means many nations NEED to keep a close eye on the U.S., and criminal wrongdoers in the Hawaiian Islands………….even today……………

Where are the Oliver Lee’s, et. als. of the past, the true rebel rousers……they are NOT in the University of Hawaii System………..but are transplanted groupies affiliated with OHA/Office of Hawaiian Affairs, etc. getting well paid off of the entity /PIRATE entity State of Hawaii………..

Jonathan Osorio’s failure to speak about/recognize that TRUE LAND OWNERS are here just continues the haole mentality of the Pirates, racketeers ……………..and by disregarding WHAT IS IS shows that he’s just one of the many paid off Hawaiians doing a fine song and dance routine to appease his feeders and looking good to his doe eyed, sheep that he tends to, a mindless, innocent, unquestioning kind in the game of education, equivocal to those mindless internet games meant to entertain, to enjoy, and to control in a subtle way…………

The Hawaiian sovereignty movement has been about people who know that our ancestors and our people have been in bad shape since the underhanded, premeditation moves by bankrupt Americans who haven’t had an honest track record in dealing with all nations aside from their masters: England/ Great Britain, Morgan Bankers, International bankers, including the Bank of England.

We are people with documented genocide issues shared to many around the World…….We are a recognized friendly nation with BIG BULLY /U.S. pirating our assets, lands, resources, etc.

Noone likes Pirates, excepting Hollywood diversions of promoting the movies, PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN with Johnny Dep and Friends……………the military are the arms of the PIRATES OF THE PACIFIC AND THE WORLD! ……rape, plunder, kill, destroy, genocide, leaving nothing but crap wherever they go……everywhere in the world!………..and in the seas…….pouring nuclear wastes everywhere, etc…………….who needs it?…………..certainly not a neutral nation area………Jon Osorio is right on to add that we don’t need the military here………..

and, it is possible to bring in other nations to protect our kanaka maoli and others here, because the TOXIC based “colony of the Crown” or the U.S. is NOT taking care of the health, safety, lives of even their own people here in sunny, unfriendly, belligerent occupation, unwelcomed military who have been served eviction notices and to move out December 2010.

Republican believe that most voters, political sleepwalkers that they are, will automatically blame whatever administration is in power for a collapsed or failed economy.
