What brings me here?
Hi I'm new to Maoliworld. I joined because I just came back from Hawai'i, Kaua'i and Oahu last week. It was my very first visit. I was dismayed by the overlay of mainland culture on what, to my eyes, is clearly a separate nation, not a state. One example is Princeville. What a blight on the land! I congratulate all Hawaiians on managing to hold on to and assert their culture but there must be full and unconditional sovereignty and secession from the U.S. I hope this will happen in 30 years or less...
I also hope I'll return soon to your country. I would love to spend my time helping your organization.
(PS I'm proud to say I didn't attend a luau show, drink a Mai Tai, stay at a resort or hang out at Waikiki Beach.)
