    No Can! That is full of HEWA!
    Using the dead to promote their HEWA, even more shameful! Dumb A!!

    Indians, Huh!!

    Das da way! Use anything to turn Hawai’i into the next reservation. Aue. No shame. No honor. No ending the ass-kissing of the slaves to American money.

    Seeing any hawaiian beg is just not right

    Ditto to Win808, full of hewa, and changing our status to Hawaiian Native Tribe is license (validation authority)to “ship Hawaiian Native Tribe” (radicals, especially) to reservations with other established Native Tribes in Alaska and America and/or prison and keep them there. If that is accomplished, who will be left occupying our islands? Do you think for one moment Alaska natives and Native Americans would be coming here to set-up residency? Where are they going to reside, on Hawaiian Home Lands? Sounds like a viable plan? You bet, but it’s sure not ours. Occupancy for eight islands is adequate for the rich and famous, it’s obvious. Are we considered the rich and famous? Setting up for, yet, another kind of civil “war”, but still, war. No matter our differences of opinion, we cannot allow “war” to be the decision maker, ever. Participation is not compliance. E aloha mana pono!
