Ke Aupuni Update

January 16, 2014

Keeping in touch and updated on activities regarding the restoration of Ke Aupuni o Hawaii, the Hawaiian Kingdom. Ua mau ke ea o ka aina I ka pono.

TOMORROW! 121st Anniversary of the purported “Overthrow”
We are all familiar with the events of 121 years ago when the U.S. foreign minister, in conspiracy with a group of prominent, powerful, greedy, businessmen landed U.S. Marines to seized control of the peaceful and friendly Kingdom of Hawaii. Thus was set in motion the series of events that led to the prolonged occupation of the Hawaiian Islands by the United States.
To decry that infamous event, there will be a series of presentations at an event called ʻONIPAʻA at UH Maui College tomorrow, Friday, January 17. (See flyer)
On Oʻahu, Hanalei Fergestrom is pitching his tent for his biannual vigil at ʻIolani Palace from January  17-19. Everyone is welcome to come and talk-story, share ideas and network for kuʻe actions. 
At noon on the 17th Palani Vaughan and the Kings Men will be joining the Royal Hawaiian Band for a special concert at the Palace to remember and observe the “unlawful overthrow of our beloved Queen & the illegal-taking of our Hawaiian Nation”
Also joining Palani in performing “Kaulana Na Pua” will be the Senior-Class of “Halau Ku Mana” Hawaiian-Immersion School where one of Palaniʻs grand-daughters is an 8th-grader…

Palani will also perform at least two other songs…”Kaulilua Waltz” and “Ka’a Ahi Kahului”

Legislature opens
The fake-state legislature opened yesterday, January 15 to the sound of the thump, thump, thump of kuʻi kalo. Hundreds of Hawaiians, young and old, were there with papalaʻau paʻiai and pohaku making a clear statement of the resurgence of aloha ʻāina.
Weʻll be talking more soon about other legislative issues.
Committee of Hawaiian Nationals
The Committee of Hawaiian Nationals is inviting anyone interested to participate in some grass-roots kine kuʻe actions. Attached is a flyer listing of some of the actions.

  • Celebrating this event in our History can make us understand what happened to our past and how our ancestors fought for our State. Sharing stories to one another is a great way to know our insights and how we can still protect our homeland. I am really looking forward to hear more stories from our veteran heroes.

  • Lima 'Ula.

    Mahalo, information is knowledge…… Looking forward to the forthcoming Committee of Hawaiian Nationals website.
