i do have marjorie sinclairs book. i also have the book by nathaniel emerson, "unwritten literature of hawaii" and i think that book has the chants for nahienaena. i was flipping through ruling chiefs and fragments of hawaiian history. i also think that lilikala mentions nahienaena and kauikeaoulis relationship in her book native lands....
but yeah. thats about it. i have yet to find any articles written about her....

(though it is expensive) how's your cousin, mr. hans, doing? a hui hou
aloha kumu, pehea 'oe?
it's funny because my first inclination was to thank you so much for all the wonderful resources your referred me to a couple years back, and that was to write an article about what laura is currently researching.
i had a political science class today, and my professor basically said, to the ENTIRE class that the annexation of hawaii was legal and still is until this day. he said that until someone shows him evidence from the united nations proving that the situation was recognized as illegal, then MAYBE he will change his mind. i didn't know what to do. i was extremely upset. he said that MORALLY, the annexation was illegal, but as for the process of the annexation, it was legal.
it is to my understanding that keanu sai took the case to the world courts and they recognized the annexation to be illegal.
i am rather frustrated. he has motivated me to go out and research all that i can about it and shove it in his face. i have some websites with articles pertaining to the situation and am hoping to uncover more when i come up to manoa this weekend.
if you know of any good sources, could you please let me know? i would really appreciate it!
