We Never Invited America Here. Delivered at panel on statehood, Asian American Studies Conference, April 23, 2009, Waikīkī.

It is an ongoing myth that Hawaiians invited everyone here and we are still inviting tourists. Let me set that straight.

I. We never invited Captain Cook here. He was just lost and lucky for him and his crew he stumbled upon our islands. Not so lucky for us. Within a few hours of finding Kauaʻi, one of his crew shot and killed a man. That night they fired cannons and shot off fireworks in order to terrify our people.

II. We never invited whalers and sandalwood traders or most of… Continue

Kānaka and Friends Gather to Kākoʻo Iwi Kupuna and Burn Papal Bulls at Wal-Mart

Yesterday, about 20 people gathered at Wal-Mart on Keʻeaumoku Street to demonstrate against the continued incarceration of iwi kupuna under the parking ramp. The iwi are held hostage there because of a legal argument. We were demanding their immediate re-burial.

Tony Castanha, who is the leader of the annual burning of the papal bulls that sanctioned genocide by Columbus and the other conquistadors, brought the papal bull burning to… Continue

Defend the Iwi Kupuna Still Under the Ramp at Wal-Mart in Honolulu

aloha e nā hoaaloha,
On Sunday, Oct. 12, at 11:30, there will be a gathering at Wal-Mart on Keʻeaumoku St. to protest the continued delay in re-burying iwi kupuna disinterred when Wal-Mart was built 5 years ago. Please come out and defend these kūpuna.

The protest is in conjunction with the annual burning of the papal bulls, the Pope's decrees in the 15th century that sanctioned the genocide in the Americas.

We'll be meeting on Keʻeaumoku near the Makaloa St. ramp.

Ho'omaika'i A Ho'olaule'a 3

aloha nō kākou,

More good news, essential in the midst of all the bad news we get every day. RaeDeen Keahiolalo-Karasuda successfully passed her dissertation final orals last week! She will graduate with her doctorate in Political Science in December. Congratulations, Dr. Keahiolalo-Karasuda.

Letʻs count em up: last summer and fall both Leilani Basham and kuʻualoha hoʻomanawanui got their doctorates; then Kanoe Nāone; then Sydney Iaukea; and now RaeDeen!

And, early… Continue

Aloha mai e Noelani,
Mahalo nui loa for all the hard work you have done to inform and educate Kanaka Oiwi as well as non-kanaka of the wrongs done to our people. Mahalo for your book "Aloha Betrayed". I bought it as soon as it came out and it moved me to was life changing. I since have come into possession of the Ku'e Petitions and words cannot explain my feelings in seeing the names of my kupuna in black and white. I am sure many people have told you that....yet it is so personal for each descendant of the Ku'e Petitioners to see the signatures of their 'ohana.

Mahalo for you blog post today. I wanted to comment there but it was closed to comments so I offer my mana'o here. The more we speak out in statements such as this the greater chance we have at enlightening people. It is a never ending effort, day in and day out, of protesting, speaking, educating, writing books, teaching each new generation the truth. I am a 50 something, who went back to school in her 40's to get my degree in Hawaiian Studies. Being exposed to Kanaka Maoli scholars such as Lilikala, Jon Osorio, Haunani-Kay to name but a read books written by you and other Kanaka Maoli scholars, opened an important door. I am on path from which there is no returning. It isn't an easy path as you must comes with ridicule from others, a distancing from some, but it is a path I choose nonetheless. I look for strength and solace in other like-minded oiwi and my kupuna, who are with me in every breath I take.

Again, mahalo piha for all you do.
Me ke aloha,

Aloha Noenoe
"Kanaka Maoli sovereignty" How do you handle Kingdom of Hawai'i citizens [Denizens and those who had royal patentazation from the King] who were not descendants of the 1778 Hawaiians. What place do they have in the return to sovereignty?

aloha Sam,
The conference is always busy--in a good way. I see many friends from around the world that I don't get to see often. Thanks for your interest in what I'm doing! I'm continuing research in the newspapers--I'll have an article coming out in this year's Hawaiian Journal of History on the early papers, and I'm working on chapters on lesser known Hawaiian writers for a new book. If life doesn't get too shaky (I've moved SO many times in the past 3 years), I hope to get near finishing in the summer.
