The War Crime Complaint alleges:

“State of Hawai‘i Judges OKAMOTO, FOLEY, LEONARD, and REIFURTH committed a war crime by willfully depriving my client, a protected person, of a fair and regular trial prescribed by the fourth Geneva Convention The Plaintiff, State of Hawai‘i Department of Hawaiian Home Lands Chair JOBIE MASAGATANI and State of Hawai‘i Governor NEAL ABERCROMBIE, represented by the State of Hawai‘i Attorney General DAVID M. LOUIE and Deputy Attorney Generals MATTHEW S. DVONCH, DIANE K. TAIRA and S. KALANI BUSH were complicit in these proceedings and therefore committed a war crime as accessories.”

The War Crime Complaint concludes:

“Accordingly, pursuant to Article 17(3) of the Rome Statute, I respectfully request the office of the Prosecutor, with all due speed, investigate the situation in order to determine if the alleged perpetrators should be charged with the war crime specified above.”

The ICC jurisdiction over the Hawaiian Islands will begin March 4, 2013.

Yes! I think it is incredible how Nela and I look a little alike, but more so we pose with all the same goofy faces in photos! We have yet to meet in person, but we already have so many mannerisms in common.  I have been in touch with her a lot since she moved to Atlanta. Trying to convince her to come visit me in SF, and to go to school!! Of course, this is because I love school myself, and am currently working on a PhD at UC Berkeley.  You will be proud: today I am giving a talk about the contemporary ramifications of colonialism in education. :)  

I hope to see you all very soon.  Maybe this summer?

That's right, those are my parents.  I hadn't seen my dad in 30 years, but by sheer dumb luck I got in touch with my cousin Candie through some old softball friends of hers.  Then, on Easter as a matter of fact, 2 or 3 years ago, I saw him and the family again.  I did stay in touch with my grandma Watkins before she passed, but she was the only one on that side who kept in touch.  We (Sean, Kimberlee, and I) came to visit in the summer of 1990 and saw grandma and grandpa one last time before they passed.  

I try to come visit at least once a year and was just there for 2 weeks last summer.  I also talk (online & through text, anyway) with my sister Keanela at least once a week, although we never got to meet in person.

Do you have any of the family tree information in document form that could be emailed to me? I'm always curious about the genealogy before my great-grandfather.  In fact, from reading some other posts, I think I ran into some potential cousin here in California if the Alapa'i family is at all related to the Pu'uleis.

I'd love to stay in touch and meet more family.  Thanks for connecting with me.

Interesting, yes, I have heard of Inciong..but didnt know where the relation was.

Have you seen pictures of Mahi or any of the children? My mom guys have been searching high and low for a picture of my great grandmother Martha Kamaka Puulei, but have never seen one. We wonder what she must have looked like. My great grandmother died when my grandmother Ethel Leilani was just 5 years old. My grandmother developed Alzheimers in her later years and has since passed . I wish I could have asked her more about our family when she was well. But if you have any pictures or seen any I would love it if I could see what our family looked like. Again, mahalo for sharing. This information is so precious! Aloha, malama ke kino, malama pono.

Good to meet you!

Yes, my great-grandmother was Martha Kamakaokeahi Puulei, daughter of Mahi and Kalaukehau Puulei! I reading your post and saw Kaianui and Haoleekaeka. Ive never seen these names before. I stopped at Kauka and didn't know where else to go. I am constantly looking out for new names (or old names i should say). I knew we were from Wainiha, but I wonder where we came from before then (if elsewhere). 

This is very exciting. Ive done most of my research here on O'ahu at the archives building and state library. Do you think there are more records on Kaua'i? I heard that a lot of them were destroyed. Every now and then I find another Puulei and everyone I talk to is eager for a family reunion. I guess the hard part is tracking everyone down!

Well I appreciate your post...I long to know my genealogy and to get a glimpse of what our family was like/what they did.

Ke aloha...

Aloha Mai! Tane,

Mai'kai'Nui, for the "KUKA KUKA" dated October 15, A.D. 2009, via
per se cellular telepono. E Kala Mai, too busy...didn't get back to
Ka'u until late.

By the way, Shane told me, that he "don't know" Verna Phillips. Oh Well.

Wow! We seem to know the same OHANA(S) and, lots of similarities
with our ENTERTAINMENT background!

Hope, to "catch-up" with our further "Kuka Kuka" kamea(s).

Be Well...A Hui Hou, Malama Pono: Noe'Lani.

Aloha Mai! Tane,

Mahalo A Nui Loa, for your ASAP answer, to My Maoliworld comment
to you, this fine morning, from Ka'u. I, arrived from Kona and, traveled by van, to another Ahuapu'a and, this time around, am helping other O'hana(s) with more "court-stuff, in Ka'u. I will be here, in Ka'u until tomorrow(October 16, A.D. 2009) and, upon the same day, I will be busy in court with another O'hana in Hilo. As I have been reminded, time and time again, of the following saying: "Services Unto others, is a service unto GOD." Thank-you, for your e-mail address. I will be honored...
to telephone you, so that, we can kuka kuka. I will, convey the message
on...to Shane and, inquire of him, about the Phillip O'hana, you mentioned. I AM, looking forward to e-mail, you. A Hui Hou, Malama
Pono: Noe'Lani.

I know, that AKUA puts us in places that, at first, we don't understand
why things happen like it does? But, when we allow AKUA to direct
us, in various kinds of capacities, we do adhere. Wow! As the saying
goes: "IT'S A SMALL WORLD," after all...I think, it is in a MELE, too.

Aloha Mai! Tane,

First of all, I take this opportunity to Mahalo A Nui Loa, My Nephew
Named: Shane, family of: Phillips, for finding the Mo'okuauhau on
the Duvachelle a/k/a "Duvauchelle," family, from your Maoliworld
site. I would like to share some mana'o regarding: "How, I came
across the Duvauchelle genealogy. About nine years ago, I visited
Molokai with My Hamakua/Palapala/Ka'ai O'hana and, My Ka'ai
O'hana happened to share several genealogy books on the Duvauchelle
and Dudoit O'hana and, I were granted copies of these genealogies. In
the same year, I happened to pass on the Duvauchelle genealogy to
one of My Haumana and, Keamalu remembered a few weeks ago, that
in her possession, she held the Duvauchelle genealogy. Given the
opportunity(again) as one who consider the HANA HOU route, I
did, xerox the book of the Duvauchelle genealogy. Lucky to say...
there were pictures of My Kupuna(s) & Mo'olelo(s) of the Duvauchelle
O'hana. My Kupuna(s) were: ALAPA'I, KEALOHA AME NAHOLOWAA.
In the month of May, 2009, I was asked to kokua a member of the
Duvauchelle with his Duvauchelle genealogy. At the time, I, totally
forgotten about the genealogy given me, nine years, ago. When we
were listing names onto a scroll, I couldn't help noticing My Tutu(s)
inoa and, articulated that it was "too late," because..."I happen to fall in "SACRED ENERGY EXCHANGE...LOVE, with this particular Living HuMan Being...who happened to be a Duvauchelle. One would say..."Too close for comfort?" Another might say: "Keeping It all in the O'hana, with the same, DNA?" "By a background check, I have been doing Mo'okuauhau...
for over 25 years and, recently, were asked by a hired attorney...if, I
"do any genealogy research?" And, My reply..."Yes, I do have extensive
background of the sacredness of My Kupuna(s), genealogy." Just for
mana'o purpose...I, like many...who are gifted and talented, happen to
wear, one of many hats and, that hat happened to be a background of:
Kunakanawai-L.A.W and, I AM, a "Student Of The L.A.W." Well, with
this collected subject matter, I did KOKUA one of the Duvauchelle
O'hana, with an on-going "boundry, trespass and neccesity case, that is going and, to be heard on Maui, on October 29, A.D. 2009. I would
like to take this opportunity, to have you write to me, in My e-mail
communication. With Much Mahalo A Nui Loa ame Aloha I Ke Kahi I Ke Kahi: Noe'Lani.

My mother is a Long. Her father is Henry Long III. His wife was Emily Aikau. I'm happy I found u. I'm not that close to that side of the family. But we do attend the Long family reunion every year on Maui. Every 4th of July weekend.

Mahalo Nui, e Tane, It was a Great KUE at Bellows when WE drove the Military HEWA Police Force with their Backs to the Gates at Bellows. I'm having a great time in Waikiki on my daily trips there. Getting good support for our nation from the people there. Only thing it does takes a lot of my time and energy, but I love it and going there where I belong. E Ola Mau Ke Aupuni Moi o Hawaii, o Pomai
