Native Hawaiian Recognition Bill Moves Forward in 2011 Legislature
Senate Bill 1520, which formally recognizes Native Hawaiian people as “the only indigenous, aboriginal, maoli people of Hawai’i,” was approved today by a joint conference of the Hawai’i State Senate and House conferees. The bill will now move to both houses of the State legislature for a final vote. If passed, it will then go to the Governor’s desk for his signature.
Senator Malama Solomon (D/Sen. Dist.1 – Waimea, Hamakua, North Hilo, portions of South Hilo), who has been a lead negotiator for Native Hawaiian recognition in the 2011 session, said “this is a historic and positive step in the reconciliation process between the State of Hawai’i and the Native Hawaiian people. By having the formal recognition by all of the people of these islands, this bill serves as strong evidence and testimony for our case pending before Congress for federal recognition of the Native Hawaiian people.”
Sen. Solomon, who represents a large portion of the Island of Hawai’i, has been working on the issue of Native Hawaiian recognition for more about three decades. “I well remember meeting with kupuna in the 1960s and ‘70s, and hearing stories of how they felt mistreated or discriminated against because of their ancestry,” she said. “Some progress towards reconciliation has certainly been made since then, but there is still much more to do and hopefully this Bill will move things forward.”
Senator Brickwood Galuteria (D/Sen. Dist 12 – Iwilei-Downtown-Kaka’ako-Waikiki), another lead negotiator of the legislation, echoed Solomon’s remarks. “Native Hawaiians are the original people of this land,” he said “and it’s only right that they be recognized as such and receive the same rights and benefits that are now given to all other native peoples in this country.
In addition to formal recognition by the State of Hawai’i, SB 1520, if passed and signed into law, also formally begins a process of creating a list of people who are of Native Hawaiian descent. Funds will be set aside to create a commission that will collect and register such names.
“We are the native people of this land,” said Sen. Solomon. “Nonetheless, we need to create a roll, a verified listing, of who we are by name and status, so that the whole world will know who we are … and that we stand up to be counted.”

Aloha no e Hawaii au,

This morning April 30 edition of the "Star-Aggravator" continues its
"in-direct" assault on Hawaiian Nationals just as Lorrin Thurston did
in the late 1800's. This time they validate their obsession with
Legislators of none other than Hawaiian blood. Since January 19th, I
have sat and testified in Legislative Hearing concerning the "welfare"
of Hawaiians. No truer word, welfare, describes this ordeal that goes
back to the year 2000 when U. S. Congress came to Honolulu Hawaii. On
page A-6, B. J. Reyes reports on the current 2011 actions of the
Legislature. Specifically, Senate Bill 1520 that would have the Office
of Hawaiian Affairs (OHA) fund and administer the program  and work
toward the continuing development of a native Hawaiian governing
entity with a five-member commission and a "registered roll of
Qualified Hawaiians". I use the term "in-direct" because it is
designed so that you do not realize you are the target. In some
campaigns it is also labeled a "victim of friendly fire".

"This gives the native Hawaiian people the standing---in terms of
recognition---by the state of Hawaii", said Sen. Malama Solomon (D.
Hilo-Honokaa), one of the key backers of the legislation. "It mandates
a roll call so that the native Hawaiian nation is actually
identified".

This no different than the old adage of what came first, "the 'Chicken
or the Egg"? Well, no legislations of the The Fake State of Hawaii had
anything to do in creating then and now  the Hawaiian Nation. Nor did
its parents, the Territory of Hawaii, or its grandparents the Republic
of Hawaii. Certainly, is there anyone who believes the Hawaiian Nation
was created by the manifest destiny of the Committee of Safety? The
Hawaiian Nation of civilization and culture is at least 1000 recorded
years before all of these "claim-jumpers" came ashore to these
Islands. In fact, there are Hawaiian records that date a Hawaiians
existed an additional 1,000 before those "claim-jumpers" could speak
and communicate.
Hawaiian Nationals have never left the Hawaiian Nation. There are
Hawaiians who like all docile natives have traded their Nationality
for thirty pieces of silver to become anything but a Hawaiian
National, just as those who have traded their Hawaiian Archipelago Ko
Hawaii Pae Aina for a homestead. Recognition is bilateral. It is not a
"their-way" street.

Hawaiian Nationals do not need legislation or resolution to be
recognition, for we have never left or traded our makana of
Nationalism. Only "Legislative Hawaiians" have terminated. Take a
close look at the 1900 Organic of Hawaii Section 4, and the 1959
Admissions Act of Hawaii, Section 19. You are not Hawaiian Nationals
because you have assented or acquiesced to their unilateral
legislations. A'ole, before you think these sections were included to
protect you as a Hawaiian National, you are in a dilemma. It was
included up front to protect the 'Invader" of fraud and confuse you,
just as Senate Bill 1520 and the Akaka Pill is designed to do.

Hawaiian Nationals know "what they are". Who you are has nothing to do
with your Nationality. By the makana of King Kamehameha III,
Kaui'keaouli  and the Grace of God Almighty, we have our identity,
Oni'pa'a!

Howzit Maoli world? I'm looking for a tattoo artist that can also create that style of art on computer programs such as Illustrator. If anyone is interested or knows someone let me know because I feel it would enhance my apparel company (Hawaiian Attitude) and would love to promote that style of art-Jeff

Every polynesian culture is unique in their tatooing styles and methods. But I'm also loving these new Tats that's been going around within the past 10-15 years that shows a combination of all the Poly tats. I remember when Hawaiians started jamming the Samoan arm bands then many started repping their tats from Tahiti and Marquesas, now I'm seeing bradah's rep the Maori Moko's or face tatoo's! Now that's dedication!
