I hope everyone can make it. Try to at least so we can be heard. Below are suggestions for signs or make up one of your own. It's time to stop all the shenanigans and assaults against the Hawaii Nationals; particularly those against the Kanaka Maoli. Let the truth be heard. They desecrate our iwi; displace our people; disrespect our country; try to force us in living a lie; subjugate us; throw insults and character-assassinations of us; and expect us to assimilate into their WASP racist… Continue

A BIT OF HAWAII'S HISTORY

As far as the early Hawaiians were concerned, the Makahiki was their time for "peace on earth and goodwill toward men."

So yeah, Ohana out there. Councilmember Bill Mederios from Maui said he challenges anyone who says that he ISNT for Hawaiian Rights.
If Braddah man was FOR Hawaiian rights, He would not have passed the Discharge of Makena Resort straight to the Land Use Committee before they do proper assessment of the land.
Just a quick recap for those who dont know what I talking about: Makena Resort 1,077 High Density Condos, shopping mall, golf course, new hotel, Dodo plant all on top… Continue

My family and I go to the beach everytime my mom has a day off. So I was just sitting on the beach then I saw a crab and I tried to plan in my head how to catch one of them. After a while I learned it was impossible. So I decided to just sit and watch and just like Jesus said to watch the ants because they work together to survive. But only the beach didn't have ants so I stuck with the crabs. I learned that the crabs ate the stuff that the water washed up. There are many ways to discover… Continue

WAILUKU - Results of the 2008 election in Maui County could reinvigorate debate over the county's residency districts versus having full district representation on legislative bodies.
In Maui County Council races, voters sent back to office every incumbent and two former council members. But three successful candidates might not have won if they were relying only on the voters in the… Continue

Frustration on Molokai
The Molokai Dispatch
Molokai /Lanai OHA Trustee Colette Machado won the 2008 statewide election against challenger Waipa Purdy.
Here is a deeper look at the whole story. On January 31, 2007 an extraordinary event consisting of thirteen hundred Molokai citizens participated in an election for the seats on the Molokai Enterprise Community, or EC. To get a sense of how extraordinary, some twelve hundred Molokai citizens… Continue

As demonstrated in two consecutive elections, the residents of Molokai have clearly stated that they do not support the leadership abilities of Collette Machado.
The recent general election demonstrated widespread community support for OHA Trustee Candidate- Waipa Purdy. Running against Collette Machado, Purdy received 917 Molokai votes while Machado received 441 local votes. Despite these numbers it was Collette Machado who claimed… Continue

"First of all, the Hawaiians' contempt for tourists was so obvious it was annoying.
I couldn't escape the irony that the tourist industry workers were among the most contemptuous people toward tourists.
It sure would have been nice if more than a couple of them had smiled as they took all my money.
I just couldn't escape the feeling that I was an unwelcome guest, and the… Continue

Ah yes, that wonderful word that has caused controversy among Asian/Haoles living on the west coast in their early 20s to early 30s. I wrote the subject line like that because while reading through a passage (see link below) I noticed the use of "kanaka" following the word "hapa". Again I'll say in my own experience growing up on Molokai in the 70s and early 80s, I never heard "Hapa" being used by itself at all. I've always heard hapa haole
, but never Hapa by itself.
But this… Continue

If you recognize yourself as a Hawai'i national, then why stand on the sidelines. Live it, celebrate it, and defend it. Be one with pride and integrity and participate in it; you don't have to travel outside of the country to do it; it's here. Why do you persist on commemorating, memorializing, or celebrating another country's holidays, memorials, commemorations when we have our own? Celebrate who you are; take pride in who your are; live as who you are as a Hawai'i national within your… Continue
