The Writ of Possession imposed by the State of Hawaii District Court on behalf of our father's widow, Elenora Arioli has been overturned by the Appellate Court. It was deemed by the Appellate Court that the District Courts had no jurisdiction to rule on our case being that this was not a landlord-tenant situation. Good news as the ruling puts us back into the arena to pursue a case against DLNR for procedure manipulation in assigning our homestead to Elenora Arioli.

This is something for we, Hawaiian subjects, to ponder on and decide what form of governance we want in this century. Being aware of our typical progressive evolution, it is wise to think of the options most beneficial for us as an island nation to create once the U.S. de-occupies our nation. This is what was sent to me and made me think of our options:
Are New Zealanders ready to cut royalty adrift ??????

It seems like the year has passed by quickly despite the challenges Kanaka Maoli faced daily. Whether its our 'aina, wai or our right to self determination, we must persist in the year 2010.

Nahi'ena'ena died on 30 December 1836. Her brother, Kauikeaouli (Kamehameha III) was devastated at her passing that he declared that day as a national Memorial Day. It was a day set aside to reflect and honor those who left the physical world and entered the realm of the spirit world.
