REMEMBERING KANALU YOUNG ON "VOICES OF TRUTH – ONE-ON-ONE WITH HAWAI`I’S FUTURE"



We remember the life of Kanalu Young, one of Hawai`i’s most remarkable Kanaka Maoli warriors, who recently passed away.



Kanalu was not only a learned professor of history, but also a role model for others.



During his later years even though bedridden, he continued his work from home, meeting with…

An Old Story

I'm wading through my sources to put together the "evidence" for a chapter. Today I'm sifting through the 1821 journal from the Sandwich Islands mission. Here's an entry from April 27 1821:



27. Today we received as a present from Capt. Davis, who arrived in the brig Arab, a barrel of bread, about 90 pounds of rice, and a small box of soap.



Among the things I am tracking for the dissertation is the relationship between ship captains,(whaling and merchant) and the mission. I… Continue

Flat Tire lose money

I just finished working on Early Voters walk-in vote. I can't believe they hired me. I don't vote and it is like the Fox guarding the Hen House. The new machine for paper ballot is like a large paper shedder. There is a Video called Voter Fraud, which actually catches League of Women Voters casting ballots to change the voter count. They have the chads in their lap. All this is on tape. The new computer machine has a paper tape inside, yeah like they are going to use that information to do a… Continue

Pics from Founders' Day courtesy of the Kamehameha Schools Alumni Association East Coast region in Maryland

The only reason why I attend any functions (social or otherwise) is to be in the presence of great people like Mrs. Gerry Johansen who epitomizes THE legacy. I am very biased because some people didn't help my younger brother Aukai who was equally indigent as us three. Likewise... I am equally indignant when it comes to pilau. Nonetheless LOL... while it can be EXTREMELY difficult for me to overlook some pilau I do so out of respect for everyone who was ever kind and COMPASSIONATE to me when I… Continue

WHO WINS IN A FREE HAWAI`I ? - EVERYONE !

One of the biggest lies perpetuated is when Hawai`i achieves nationhood once again it will be at the expense of everyone else.



But no one will be kicked out; their businesses seized or their homes and property confiscated.




Instead, everyone, Hawaiians and all others, will be citizens of the sovereign and…

Tips for would be writers

Tip one : Mail your entire life savings to your sister, or other family member who you trust with your kala, and tell them to send you the money for rent, food, and the dissertator's staple, coffee, ONLY when you have mailed off significant chunks of your writing. This keeps you housed, and on deadline!!! One of my professors actually did this and his book has just been published. (so it apparently works) This technique plays on your threshold for humiliation and hunger. Two great… Continue

HERE'S WHAT PRESIDENT GROVER CLEVELAND SAID ABOUT THE ILLEGAL OVERTHROW OF HAWAI`I

“By an act of war, committed with the participation of a diplomatic representative of the U.S. and without authority of Congress, the Government of a feeble but friendly and confiding people has been overthrown.”



Cleveland continued that the U.S. Government occupied “the position of having actually… Continue

What Kanaka owns the Royal Patent under the Kealani Fairmont Hotel in Wailea Maui?

It's been a really good past week. My computer broke down so I haven't been able to get on, well I checked my email on my daughter's laptop but I couldn't do any research or anything like that that can take up hours of my time.

It's a good thing. Since I didn't have my computer I was able to realize how unbalanced I was making my life. Without the computer I was able to catch up with my wash, concentrate on what I eat, and most importantly, spend time with my children, the very reason I do… Continue

Google Books on Hawaiian history, 19th century travelogues and narratives of "discovery"

Google books has this project where they take old and out of print books from libraries and scan them and put them on the web. This site also has more contemporary books as well as a "take a peek" option for books you may be interested in buying.



If you enjoy reading 19th century works about Hawai'i check out Google Books. It's cheaper than buying old books if you don't have that kind of a budget.



If you have a gmail account you can actually set up your own digital… Continue

USING YOUR INFLUENCE ON "VOICES OF TRUTH – ONE-ON-ONE WITH HAWAI`I’S FUTURE"

Several Office Of Hawaiian Affairs trustees seats will be up for grabs this November.

Activism is a good thing!

There's this guy on his Kona Blog that questions the existence of Hawaiian activists and accuses us of wanting the status quo. He questions our concern of Mauna kea telescopes and other issues. His multi-issue statements made me respond to his allegations. This is my response to him:





Traditionally, activism is a good thing and I might add that you do a bit of activism yourself. Without activism, things remain status quo. In fact, more people should be activists which is… Continue

My friend Neda

Yesterday I lost a dear girlfriend to cancer. She was too young, her children all too young, much about her story was too soon. Neda was one of those wahine that was just so beautiful; have five children and not a lick of cellulite on her body. Thick gorgeous hair. A full smile whenever she cracked one. Mahina kona alo i nā manawa a pau. She lived for her children, two fine sons and three lovely daughters, as well as her loving husband, and two precious grandchildren. She had a good report… Continue

Wahi a Jane, Wahi a Fischer

Instead of proving the wrongs of the past that were wrought upon Hawaiians and the kingdom, really, what are your questions?

What is it that we have to ask as writers, intellectuals, scholars and subjects of the nation?
Jane suggested the part about "what are your questions."
I added the extra stuff.

Rather than writing against---------------how about you write "for?"
