Ke Aupuni Update from Leon Siu – Mauna Kea, Aloha movie, UN briefings

Ke Aupuni Update
June 9, 2015

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.

———
Aloha kakou. 
 
The past 3 weeks back in the islands has been amazing. The advances made in Geneva and New York are more than matched here at home by the growing enthusiasm for restoring our nation. The vision for a Free Hawaii based on the principles of Kapu Aloha is coming more clearly into focus.
Ku Kia’i Mauna
Mahalo for those protecting Mauna a Wakea. Your Ku’e and living examples of Aloha are breaking through many barriers, especially those among our own people. Your Ku’e on all fronts is exposing—big time—the games being played by the different “players” (the state, the university, the foreign countries, the corporations, the scientific institutions). Even when they talk aloha ‘aina, their true motive? Money. OHA it turns out just wanted a cut of the action.
Aloha Movie
If you get a chance, go see the movie, “Aloha” (starring Bradley Cooper and Emma Stone). It has some good scenes that should pique people’s interest in our movement. Bumpy does a great job. Don’t worry about them calling Bumpy “king.” What the movie does in a very matter-of-fact way, is confront people with a different reality about Hawaii…that Hawaii is still a sovereign nation and that we are a people working to restore our nation. I’m not concerned about the title. The term “Aloha” has endured much greater abuse than this and has still emerged pure and kapu in the minds and hearts of people all over the world.
Briefings on recent UN breakthrough
I will be giving two talks that are open to the public to attend: 1) on Kauai Thursday, June 11 and 2) on Oahu, June 12. The talks will be on recent gains made at the international level toward asserting the sovereignty of our nation. (see attached flyers)
Next week, I will be headed for New York and Geneva again to continue lobbying countries and building support for Hawaiian independence.
A hui hou,
Malama pono,
Leon

    Mahalo Leon 4da update…

    Leon what do you think of the idea of getting all the HK govts together 4a big kuka kuka… On the Mauna…
    Under A strict Kapu Aloha…

    IMHO…
    The combination of the leaders of the Mauna and the leaders of HK together… We could ask…
    How can we change this negative energy to positive?..
    IMHO…

    Ho, Leon, i cant thank you enough for coming to share in person, THE MOST PROfound information. I spent the entire afternoon diving into the US UPR, sending Pakistan a deep Aloha stepping out of the box as they have. Since USA must respond, im on the edge of my seat, although it is evidenced in their ‘answer’ confirmed position, base colonialism…an insult to ppls and nations, affront to the UN Charter foundational principle human rights to SELF Determination…thats it!!!,awesome r these implications. Exciting, very exciting…im following and offer a diverse background, communications, transcription recently the Ku’e Petition. ahui hou, deb

  • It has always been my belief that all movies of indigenous people’s should be produced and filmed by the indigenous people’s themselves because the white man’s attitude about native peoples are always at variance with the truth about those people. You need only watch those white-made ‘cowboy v. indian’ movies to note that the white men are always the good-guys while the natives are the evil, blood-thirsty, murderous, bad guys.
