NEA recognizes Hawaiian overthrow/occupation

From the HawaiianKingdom.org Blog:

At its Annual Meeting and Representative Assembly on July 4, the National Education Association (NEA), of which the Hawaii State Teachers Association (HSTA) is a part, agreed to the following:

“The NEA will publish an article that documents the illegal overthrow of the Hawaiian Monarchy in 1893, the prolonged occupation of the United States in the Hawaiian Kingdom and the harmful effects that this occupation has had on the Hawaiian people and resources of the land.”

According to the HSTA Facebook, Chris Santomauro, a teacher at Kane‘ohe Elementary introduced the proposal, and Uluhani Wai‘ale‘ale, a teacher at Kualapu‘u Charter School on Moloka‘i gave an impassioned and articulate argument in favor of the proposal and it swayed a majority of teachers from across the United States to support it.

From Press Release:

Dole as President of the Territory of Hawaii. “With Bible in hand, pistols in their pockets and American Naval troops at the ready, men gathered on the steps of ʻIolani Palace on July 4th, 1894. Invoking the name of American liberty, they dismantled the liberty of the people of the Hawaiian Kingdom.”

Hawaii National Transitional Authority meeting

From Poka Laenui via Facebook: 

The third general meeting of the Hawaii National Transitional Authority will be held tomorrow 85-888 Farrington Hwy., Wai`anae, HI at the S&L Building. Meeting starts at 6:00 P.M. and will run for 3 hours.
The transitional authority meetings are meant to bridge Hawaii from its current state under U.S. control to liberation as an independent nation-state. There are many challenges to be met before we reach our goal. The largest challenges seem to be ourselves, our attitudes, and our lack of vision to all the possibilities of our future.

In the past two meetings, we began a process of facing these challenges, “peeling the onion, one leaf at a time.” From the adage, “a house divided against itself cannot stand,” we explored the areas of unity among various expressions of Hawaiian sovereignty, from immediate and absolute independence to a process of obtaining Federal recognition, and moving within the U.S. administration, to eventual independence from the U.S. We explored options of working within the U.S. administration and taking over place and positions in preparation for assuming independence.

Leon Siu on HuffPo: Hawaii no sanctuary for Hawaiians

Leon Siu has a piece in the Huffington Post pointing out the hypocrisy of the state of Hawaii challenging Trump’s travel ban in court and intending to declare itself a sanctuary state, while it “has gone overboard in utilizing the cover of U.S. immigration policies to apply the status of ‘undocumented’ to Hawaiian nationals — those Hawaiians living in the Hawaiian Islands and who assert they are subjects of the Hawaiian Kingdom, residing in the Hawaiian Kingdom.”
