    Another example of the bad and incorrect use of “N”ative Hawaiians. Again, again, and again. Is anyone going to get it??? The Kanaka Maoli are the aboriginal people of Hawai’i. This Native Hawaiian appellation is a USA construct so they do not have to apologize to the Kingdom of Hawai’i subjects: of whatever nationality they might have come from, who swore allegiance to the Monarch and the Kingdom. WTF can’t anyone stand up this continuous lie?? Even the bloody Christians apologized to the Native Hawaiians for the overthrow of the HK Government. And you know you can just trust those Desert Religions to do the right thing. Aue! Aue!
