New book challenges U.S. Rights to Hawaiian Islands

Recently released a book written by Keahi Felix challenges assumptions that regard Hawai`i as part of the United States showing how and why the opposite is true. “Never a culture without a nation” is the admonition that reverberates throughout the pages of Wahine Noa: for the life of my country. A book signing and reading is scheduled for Saturday, August 7, 2:00 p.m., Basically Books, 160 Kamehameha Ave., downtown Hilo, Tel. 961-0144.

The author, a Hawaiian National with a B.A. from Chaminade University and an M.A. from the University of Hawai`i, has spent 20 years investigating the issues that surround the Hawaiian Kingdom’s legal and political status. She uses a variety of writing styles to invite readers into personal dialogue with the subject matter. The book comes with a powerpoint CD that includes a photo essay, “We Want Our Country Back,” and a recording of a story poem inspired by an event in the author’s life that connects to the Kumulipo Chant.

Available in stores and at for $17.95, Wahine Noa is not about U.S. bashing. It is about transforming victimization into productive protest as a means to build the future based on Hawai`i’s authentic claims to nationhood.
