To whom it may concern:

As a Hawai'i national and a native Hawaiian, I object to the seditious Akaka Bill S. 381.
We do not deal with your Secretary of Interior; it is a domestic and internal U.S. Department.
Historically, we directly work with your Secretary of State as a nation to nation.

So far since 1893, all U.S. actions have stemmed from internal actions and resolutions rather
than treaties. What kind of nation is the U.S.A., that doesn't honor its treaties nor follow its
own internal resolutions that doesn't meet up with its private agenda?

The U.S. has acknowledged its government's complicity and crime in covert and overt actions in
destabilizing, invading, belligerently occupying our sovereign nation, the Kingdom of Hawai'i;
its government, its territory, and holding its people hostage. The U.S.A. has made a mockery
of justice, democracy, freedom, while bringing dishonor and shame upon itself.

The Blount Report brought out the truthful facts; the racist Morgan Report contradicted the facts
to exonerate its government and its people. The Turpie Resolution prevented U.S. President
Cleveland from righting the wrong nor any other nation to step up in our behalf; but gave us the
choice to choose our government.

The Queen's second protest, the Memorial and Ku'e Petitions of 1897 against unlawful annexation
signed by over 98% of our Hawaiian citizens spoke for the people, but went ignored contrary
to the Turpie Resolution of 1894 and have muted our voice ever since that time. Ignoring the
conditions set in the Turpie Resolution, the U.S. create another internal resolution to continue
its theft. The domestic joint-resolution known as the Newlands Resolution over-rode the people's
choice in favor of the U.S. military-protected puppet-Republic of Hawai'i. Another internal
instrument, the Organic Act of 1900, further continued the theft without a treaty of annexation.

The domestic Statehood Act of 1959 confirmed the seizure of the Hawaiian Kingdom for the U.S.
sole purpose of control; to escape the U.N. mandate; and to claim the dubious ownership of the
Hawaiian territory; to once again prevent the Hawai'i nationals' voice in returning our country to us.

To add insult to injury, the U.S.A. is asking most of us to comply with another internal Bill S. 381,
known to us as the Akaka Bill, to change our status from a Hawai'i national to one of its Native
American tribes while disregarding the rest of the bona fide Hawaii nationals not of native
Hawaiian blood.

The Reorganization of the Native Hawaiian Government is a fraud; deceitful misrepresentation of the
Kingdom of Hawai'i. I will not be a part of this criminal charade and I hope you won't be either. We
will fight this U.S. ipso facto usurper attempting to replace our lawful, internationally recognized,
legitimate government, the Kingdom of Hawai'i. Free Hawai'i by U.S. belligerent de-occupation.
Say, "NO" to the Akaka Bill S. 381.

He Hawai'i au,

This is the lies that they are sending out via email. I am extremely disappointed in Senator Akaka who is sending our keiki to the wolves! I do not trust any politician in Washington DC. NOT ONE OF THEM! Well here it is:

Contact: Jesse Broder Van Dyke (Akaka): (202) 224-7045

Washington, D.C. - U.S. Senator Daniel K. Akaka (D-Hawaii) today introduced The Native Hawaiian Government Reorganization Act of 2009 with Senator Daniel K. Inouye (D-Hawaii) as an original cosponsor. Congressman Neil Abercrombie (D-Hawaii) introduced a companion bill in the U.S. House of Representatives with Congresswoman Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii) cosponsoring. The text of the bill introduced today is identical to the bill passed by the House in 2000.
The bill would begin a process to form a Native Hawaiian government that could negotiate with the state and federal government on behalf of Hawaii's indigenous people. Any agreements would require implementing legislation by the state or federal government; no jurisdiction would be changed without approval. The bill would provide parity in federal policies that empower other indigenous peoples, American Indians and Alaska Natives, to participate in a government-to-government relationship with the United States.

In his floor statement today, Senator Akaka said: "Building on the constitutionally sound and deliberate efforts of Congress and the State of Hawaii, it is necessary that Native Hawaiians be able to reorganize a government and enter into discussions with the federal and state governments. My bill would ensure there is a structured process by which Native Hawaiians and the people of Hawaii can come together, resolve such complicated issues, and move forward together as a state."

Senator Inouye said: “This is a good bill and it is long overdue. The Hawaii Congressional Delegation will do its utmost to successfully pass this measure.”

Congressman Abercrombie said: “The legislation we are introducing today is important, not only to Native Hawaiians, but to everyone in Hawaii. It provides a process to address longstanding issues facing Hawaii’s indigenous peoples and the State of Hawaii. In addressing these matters, we have begun a process of healing, a process of reconciliation not only between the United States and the Native people of Hawaii, but within the State.”

Congresswoman Hirono said: “It is a matter of decency—of human and civil rights—for the Congress to provide for a process of self-determination for an indigenous, native people. The House has twice voted to support federal recognition for Native Hawaiians, and I look forward to working with the Hawaii delegation on passing the bill again and having our Hawaii-born President Obama sign it into law."

Commonly known as the “Akaka Bill,” the Native Hawaiian Government Reorganization Act enjoys bipartisan support. In Hawaii, the bill is strongly supported by Governor Linda Lingle, and the State legislature has passed three resolutions in support of federal recognition for Native Hawaiians. In 2007, Hawaii State Attorney General Mark Bennett testified in strong support of the legislation before the Senate Indian Affairs Committee. Nationally, organizations such as the American Bar Association, Japanese American Citizen League, and the National Indian Education Association have passed resolutions in support. The largest national Indian organization, National Congress of American Indians, and the largest organization representing the Native people of Alaska, the Alaska Federation of Natives, have consistently expressed their strong support.

While Congress has traditionally treated Native Hawaiians in a manner similar to American Indians and Alaska Natives, the federal policy of self-governance and self-determination has not been formally extended to Native Hawaiians. Upon enactment the bill itself does not extend federal recognition - it authorizes the process for federal recognition.

Opponents to the bill have sought to spread misinformation about the legislation. It is important to clarify that:

The bill does NOT allow Hawaii to secede from the United States.
The bill does NOT allow private lands to be taken.
The bill does NOT authorize gaming in Hawaii.
The bill does NOT create a reservation in Hawaii.
The Native Hawaiian Government Reorganization Act does three things:
It establishes the Office of Native Hawaiian Relations in the Department of the Interior to serve as a liaison between Native Hawaiians and the United States.
It establishes the Native Hawaiian Interagency Task Force to be composed of federal officials from agencies which administer Native Hawaiian programs, intended to increase coordination between the Native Hawaiians and the federal government.
It provides a process of reorganization of the Native Hawaiian government for the purpose of a federally recognized government-to-government relationship with the United States.

This inclusive, democratic negotiations process represents both Native Hawaiians and non-Native Hawaiians. Negotiations between the recognized Native Hawaiian government, the United States, and the state of Hawaii will address issues such as criminal and civil jurisdiction, historical grievances, and jurisdiction and control of natural resources, lands, and assets. There are many checks and balances in this process and any agreements reached will require implementing legislation on the state and federal levels. While the bill provides structure, it also provides the Native Hawaiian community with the flexibility to truly reorganize its government.

“This process is important for all people of Hawaii, so we can finally resolve the longstanding issues resulting from the overthrow of the Kingdom of Hawaii and move forward together to provide a better future for the children of Hawaii. We have an established record of the United States' commitment to reconciliation with Native Hawaiians. This legislation is a necessary next step to build upon that foundation and honor that commitment,” Senator Akaka added.

Senator Akaka statement introducing the bill, to be published in the Congressional Record for today’s date, is available at:
The Senate bill is now referred to the Senate Committee on Indian Affairs, and the House bill to the House Committee on Natural Resources.

Aloha ia kakou:

You have my permission to use my letter to send or one similar or take excerpts of it or glean from it to express yourself. What we need to do is send out the truth and let them know we do not consent to the Akaka Bill, especially how it's written. It's time to pay the piper and return our island nation to us and for them to de-occupy it. Then we can proceed to mend our relations with the U.S.A. and we will run our own country again. What you need to do is send the message to Congress ASAP (it doesn't have to be as lengthy) since they have submitted the Bill of subjugation and theft.
Mahalo Tane for posting your letter. It is well written and to the point. You have become proficient in your letters of protest because you have diligently written in protest over and over and I know you will continue to do so until things are pono.

Thank your for sharing your gift of being able to put your mana'o on palapala with others.

The more letters sent to out is good. We will be heard.

Mahalo for all you do.
