There is a massive assault on Hawaiians with the Akaka Bill being pushed by President Obama (let's hope it is ONLY because he doesn't know any better...otherwise the hope and change he spoke of left us out). The Office of Hawaiian Affairs the ONE entitity that was set up to assist us...is in fact selling our future OUT from UNDER us through the Akaka Bill and the deceitful registration of names under the guise of the KAU INOA registration. OHA has never had open forums to ask us what we want...and no different than the State of Hawaii, are attacking our rights to independence, stolen from us since the illegal overthrow of our Queen and Nation on January 17, 1893.
Think about it. It wasn't that long ago (116 years) that we were thriving, independent, and intact. That is just slightly longer than the lifespan of our Kupuna, who lived life considering their actions would affect 7 generations. Think about that...it wasn't that long ago.
We will be going around getting signatures in person, and will let you know when, where, and if you can help...please sign on for that as well.
It will take ALL of us moving in the same direction...in mass...to bring about the changes needed and return our strong and united VOICE.
