Here's What The History Books Won't Tell You -

Western diseases, to which Hawaiians had no immunity, decimated their numbers. At the time of western contact, well over 500,000 people inhabited the Hawaiian Islands.

By 1805 that number had been more than halved.

By 1853 there were only 71,000 Hawaiian or part-Hawaiian people in the islands.

Within 100 years of western contact, the Hawaiian population had been reduced by nearly 90 percent.

According to the 2000 census, the numbers of people who claim some native Hawaiian ancestry have increased to over 400,000. But only 239,000 live in Hawai`i and they are the poorest, most locked-up population in the state.

Although they only make up about 20 percent of the state's population, in June 2001 they made up 39 percent of the state's prison population, according to the state Department of Public Safety.

Sadly, today they make up 37 percent of the state's homeless population.

ALOHA Kakou,  

     Many Hawaiians are Outcasts in Their Own Home Lands due to the Blood Quantum Mind Sets of many native Hawaiians. 

     Native Hawaiians who support the Blood Quantum Mind Sets and Their Rules and Regulations on placing native Hawaiians on Their Own Promised Lands of the Hawaiian Homes Commission Act. 

    Native Hawaiians who speaks of support of the Blood Quantum then marry outside of the Blood Quantum is Speaking from Both Sides of their mouths. 

    Native Hawaiians who do nothing at the State and Congress Levels to protect the intent of the Hawaiian Homes Commission Act. 

    Native Hawaiians who continue to perpetuate the wrongs of the "Act of War" on Hawaiian Nationals that happened on January 16, 1893. 

    Native Hawaiian LuLu BELLS of the Valley of the Snakes in the Grass! 

Long Live The Hawaiian Kingdom, o Pomaikaiokalani, Hawaiian National 1993
