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.
