Military occupation and the laws of war
There have long been customary laws of belligerent occupation as part of the laws of war which gave some protection to the population under the military occupation of a belligerent power. These were clarified and supplemented by the Hague Conventions of 1907. Specifically "Laws and Customs of War on Land" (Hague IV); October 18, 1907: "Section III Military Authority over the territory of the hostile State." The first two articles of that… Continue

The Hawaiian people have suffered since the first Western contact in 1778.
Western diseases, to which Hawaiians had no immunity, decimated their numbers.
At the time of western contact, some 800,000 people inhabited the Hawaiian… Continue

Lili‘u's "He ‘Ai na Kalani"
na Kīhei de Silva
Hui Hānai suggests that Lili‘u composed this mele for one of two events in Kalākaua’s reign: his return, in 1881, from his tour of the world, or his change of residence, in 1888, from Honolulu to Kailua, Hawai‘i. Her mele describes the special foods that were prepared on these significant occasions, the cherished friends who served them, and the respectful silence that traditionally accompanied the royal… Continue

For my family and friends some of whom I will end up haunting LOL:
Earlier today I went to see one of my clients. While driving there I thought about her possibly asking me who I was voting for and who I think is better between McCain and Obama. My choice is obvious. Who is against the Akaka Bill? McCain so obviously he got my vote but it surprised me that she asked me exactly what I thought she would. Of course she is voting for McCain too but I was surprised that… Continue

For my family and friends some of whom may end up being haunted by me LOL:
I don't like to talk or discuss politics because politics brings out the best and the WORSE in people. People can and will vote for whomever they want. For example, my twin sister Lisa who is four minutes older than me is voting for Senator Obama while I am voting for Senator McCain. I agree to disagree. Obviously.
Well since the local media in Hawai'i is biased and mistakenly… Continue

Many U.S. settlers in Hawai'i, especially the recent ones within the last 50 years, like to trash the Kanaka Maoli saying they are lazy, on welfare, criminal and derelicts waiting for hand outs. We know this not to be true; yet the character-assassinations continue. Many Hawaiians lived and lives on prime properties that developers are itchy to get their hands on; including the alleged-state of Hawai'i and the U.S. military.
Many don't remember Damon Tract, Kalama Valley, Fort… Continue

Ok, normalmente devo escrever em havaiano...por exemplo:
Ke kakau nei au i keia ma ka olelo HI, pili ana i ko'u hoa, ka makana no na aumakua, no na tini akua, o Micio (Laka) kona inoa.
Mas, eu prefero escrever em português (atualmente eu odio escrever em outras línguas) pq eu sei que posso expressar minhas emoções melhor no idioma português do que havaiano.

For my family and friends who know how blunt I can be. Everyone who knows me already knows that I am strongly anti-Akaka Bill, anti-Kau Inoa "Native Hawaiian Registration" Program, and anti-development at La'au Point and PRO-choice and PRO-gay marriage. Also my husband stated it best... that some people are more concerned about their resumes than they are about Hawaiian children and/or helping other Hawaiians. I agree with him. Fortunately there are exceptions like Mrs. Gerry… Continue

Since 1842, the Hawaiian Kingdom entered into treaties with major nations of the world and had established over ninety consulates in those countries, including the US.
The Hawaiian Kingdom in fact had a consulate in San Francisco and an embassy in Washington, DC until the illegal overthrow of Queen Lili`uokalani by the US.… Continue

This was the first article I ever wrote in my career at UH Manoa’s KaLeo newspaper. I just felt it was really important to write about something positive for Hawaiians plus, I really admire the journal staff,& what they are doing for Hawaiian writers, artists, & students, especially the efforts of my Kumu Ku’ualoha Ho’omanawanui. The ‘Oiwi journal staff are still accepting submissions for 2009’s Volume #4, more info on that below. I encourage all of you to share… Continue
