All the credit, none of the blame?

You'er on target with your mana'o, thank you tina for your responses. I reread what I wrote and it seems to me that I was not coherent with what I was trying to say. Or, I confused my writing under the wrong headings. I apologize for the confusion, maybe we can start over.

I am for the 50% plus blood quantum, in part. I started in 1974 with older women, since then most have died. What started out to be a group of women on DHHL wanting to have a few dollars for programs for their children--turned into what we have today.

These women (bless their hearts) went to the Council of Hawaiian Organization with a map showing where the ceeded lands were. They also, showed this group the present state law and the 14 million dollars of income and proceeds being directed into education from the general fund.

Ever since, we have been in a battle for our lives. The 1978 con con, 1979 legislation, formation of OHA .... Akaka Bill. The bottom line is not to disappear from the face of the earth.

We must be incharge of our lives, and our environment where our Ohana have lived for thousands of years. I don't think that is the US plan for native Hawaiians.

From these stepping off points, I grew up on DHHl and am presently a leasee in Waianae. Only Hawaiians live in my community because a long time ago our Na Kupuna saw through the political mix match of the Organic Act. The felt that we should separate ourselves from the non Hawaiians. Sadly, congress did the bloodquantum and we have been living this 'ugly' lifestyle ever since.

Since 1921-23 we have been marginalized from the mainstream Hawaiians. Our economics and quality of life are in peril and most times not fixable. The studpid quantum gave us an opportunity to access our lands and income and proceeds. However, the way I see things over the years the mainstream Hawaiians kept the income proceeds away from the leasee and their ohana.

Which is why I am arguing for the 50% plus bloodquantum for a particular group that was set by congress in 1923. It sucks! However, we are in extreme poverty (overcrowding , dilapedated homes etc..). We can further our lives materialy (fix up our homes) however, with what you go through with the DHHL department, I've always had the same problem, that continues till this very moment. So, good luck on your endeavors for a home on DHHL. I hope we can continue this conversation for a better understanding of where I am coming from and come up with ideas that will help all Hawaiians.

oops forgot to answer your question. first you need water, no water on Homestead lands. abe Piiania got fired for using HUD money to divert water to homestead land on Molokai, they rehired him. It also happened at Hawaiian studies in the late 80's.

Mt Kaala farms is on Homestead.
My grand uncle is Edward Niaupio (Sites of Oahu) he was the only person planting Taro in Waimanalo in the late 1800's and into the early 1900's. My cousins have land next to my dad's and their land is in fallow. This property predates Kamehameha conquering Oahu.
We're not lazy-- just tired of the war games between the missionarie/territory/state and us guys. Hawaiians work for the state and that's worst part of war games. Recently, at our association meeting, our youths on Waianae Homestead want to start a youth project at Kaneaki Park. they can but they cannot grow anything, At our recent beach sweep the park keepers removed all the Hawaiian plants, taro, noni, popolo and the duck and her eggs from the area at Zablans. This removal of Hawaiian planting has been going on for hundreds of years. Kaohi

At the top, I loathe the very idea of human breeding it is a sick science that happened or entrapment. The blood quantum came from the Native American system, and implanted into our Hawaiian Homes Act only after our Na Kupuna objected to Kuhio's one thirty second idea. Our Na Kupuna, said, "We are unable to identify who is Hawaiian and who is not" I don't know the exact quote. Then congress changed it to a quantum. It is of my opinion, if congress gave our Na Kupuna another rebuttle, they would have chosen geneology over quantum. given the times, the foreigners wanted to hide their plantations within the native bosom.
