I had in interesting conversation today at Ft. DeRussy with a retired
Air Force officer. The "seed" I planted was the idea of the military
taking the lead of doing Hawaiian language planning on the Ceeded
Lands, including training a division of the military in the Hawaiian
language. Perhaps if the U.S. military were to take the lead by
championing this cause that many of their opponents, that is, those
who would take back the "Crown Lands," etc., wouldn't have as strong
of an argument against the U.S. military's continued occupation of these
Hawaiian lands. Otherwise, and as the situation presently stands from
an "international community" POV, the status quo for the military doesn't
appear to be a complimentary one for the U.S. Government.
Is this idea a "pie in the sky?" What are your thoughts?
