Tomorrow is Halloween, a day many other cultures observe filled with fright from those who rise again from the dead.
And yet the people of Hawai`i also have something to be afraid of right now - the US federal Akaka bill has come back to life once again.
As heʻs been known to do, US senator Dan Inouye is attempting to quietly sneak it past both the people of Hawai`i and also the US federal government.
Should he succeed, this Akaka bill will turn Native Hawaiians into American Indians. It will also pay off handsomely for a specific few.
So whatʻs his current sleight of hand to steal Hawaiian Kingdom land? Find out this coming Wednesday on Free Hawai`i TV in “Akaka Bill Slick Trick.”
And speaking of land rights in Hawai`i, Native Hawaiian Legal Corporation attorney Alan Murakami has dedicated his life and career to defending Hawaiian rights and land. See and hear his deeply inspiring story all this week on Hawai`i’s award winning Voices Of Truth – One-On-One With Hawai`i’s Future.

Being Hawaiian in most of the 20th century meant assimilation. Speaking Hawaiian, studying the culture and learning your genealogy were all discouraged. Such was the world Robert Ebanez grew up in, yet as a teenager he found himself yearning to learn those very things.
