Here's How Hawai`i Nationals Feel About The Illegal Overthrow Of Their Country
Let's pretend I visit your house.
You offer me food and rest. I decide to stay.
Then, I order you and your family around, use your things and rearrange the rooms.
I take down your photos and religious symbols, replace them with my own and make you speak my language.
One day, I dig up your garden and replace it with crops that I can sell.
You and… Continue

I have been like SO blogless it's not even funny!
Had a great weekend. Saturday was spent at the Scottish Highland Games at Kapiolani Park.
Like many kanaka here in Hawaii my genealogy traces back to Scotland on my mom and dad’s side. My mom is originally from Canada and she moved here with her mom after meeting my dad on the beach in Waikiki back in ’57. My mom’s side of the family is from Edinburrough , Scotland. My grandmother kept a family bible with geology records… Continue

Recently, my wife and I traveled to the island of Maui and visited the high subalpine cinderlands of Haleakalā. The name of the place, which literally means "house of the sun" gives some indication of its significance in the Hawaiian world view, for the sun was a manifestation of the god Kāne, one of the four principal Hawaiian deities. One of the peaks of Haleakalā, named Hanakauhi, is associated with the feat of the slowing of the sun's travels across… Continue

Just when we thought the ceded lands bill was dead, a few members of the House of Representatives in the Hawai`i legislature have gone out of their way to keep it alive.
It seems their plan is to use a bill lingering from last year with the Office of Hawaiian Affairs as the subject, gutting the wording and replace it with the ceded lands settlement.
At the same time OHA has been transferring millions of dollars worth of beneficiary lands and money into their private… Continue

It is with mixed feelings that I bid a fond aloha to Aloha Airlines.
As everyone here in Hawaii is aware, Aloha Airlines is no more. At least not the passenger service part that flew the Hawaiian skies for the past 60 years. All that remains now is the cargo service and a host of memories, good and bad.
I have a couple of friends who were working for Aloha and for them I am sorry. The one bright spot is that there has never been a better time to be looking for a job in… Continue

Kaua`i Group Appeals Rulings
Claiming that Hawai`i Superferry profits do not trump federally mandated environmental requirements, attorneys filed an opening brief in the Intermediate Court of Appeals this week.
Attorneys argued in the brief that Kaua`i should enjoy the same constitutional protections afforded to everyone else.
Dan Hempey and Greg Meyers, attorneys for 1,000 Friends of Kaua`i, filed the appeal of two September 2007 rulings greenlighting… Continue

Here's What Former Trustee Clarence Ku Ching Says -
"...I stressed that the statutory requirement mandating an audit every 4 years was grossly insufficient - as lots of mischief can take place at much shorter time intervals - as it seems to appear at present - and that it is possible that irreparable damage may result.
I was extremely disappointed that OHA's trustees opposed the resolution - wondering what they had to hide.
I also stressed that the trustees have… Continue

I have really been looking forward to this year's MM. Last year at the MM craft fair, a girlfriend of mine, who is also does my coiff, bought the Fornander Collection. I vividly recall her showing me the set, and how happy she was at such a precious score. Yes, it was really spendy, but like our Pākē foremothers used to say, "suffer the price for the best you can buy and you only cry once." At the time, I had made a mental note to myself that I would wait for Native Books to come back, and I… Continue
