After the unlawfull overthrow of the Hawai'ian government by white supremacists the Hawai'ian people endured 82 years of cultural genocide beginning in 1896 when the Hawai'ian language was outlawed. 30 years have passed since the 1978 Hawai'i State Constitution restoring Hawai'ian as an official language along with English, yet speakers of Hawaiian still cannot vote using their indigenous language. The current English-only standard of public services for speakers of Hawai'ian comes right out of the book of ethnic cleansing; please join with us to put this unfortunate era behind us for good! CITIZENS OF THE STATE OF HAWAI'I HAVE THE RIGHT TO RECEIVE PUBLIC SERVICES IN THE OFFICIAL LANGUAGE OF THEIR CHOICE, EITHER ENGLISH OR HAWAI'IAN!!!
