A blog on Hawaii's independence, etc.

For the past eight years I have maintained hawaii-nation info, an email news list relating to Hawaii's history and political status as an independent country. Now I hope this weblog will help make the articles and other items more accessible to audiences within Hawaii and abroad, those who are familiar with the issue and those to whom it is new.

For the past eight years I have maintained hawaii-nation info, an email list clipping service of news articles and various messages relating to Hawaii's history and political status as an independent country, and the movement to reorganize an effective government and regain recognition, focusing on political, legal and historical issues, but also on related cultural, environmental, economic and other issues. The posts to this list have been archived as a yahoo group for the past three years or so, but I have been thinking for a while that it would help to make the articles and other items more accessible in a weblog, as a guide to important items and excerpts, as I see them, with some commentary and larger world events context.

This weblog is my own personal endeavor, and the opinions are my own. I don't know how consistent I'll be and much time I'll have to post and add commentary, and the idea of posting a log for all to read is I admit a bit intimidating, but I'll just get started and see how it goes.

I have always felt that access to information about various activities and points of view is essential to a healthy evolution of the drive for Hawaii's independence, and that the more people know about it the less afraid and more supportive they tend to be.

Those not aware that Hawaiian independence is even an issue or concept, or who are only vaguely familiar with it, would probably be quite surprised at the vigorous discussion and activity in this regard that is currently occurring quite openly in Hawaii. It is the frequent subject of letters to the editors of various local papers, and events and meetings are held throughout the islands. We have state legislators and other prominent community members who are pro-independence.

It is a highly complex issue based on generations of history of the relationship of Hawaii with the United States and the rest of the world, and it is hard to know where to start, but I hope to explore and try my best to explain some of these issues from my perspective, as an American who is supportive of the movement, having been closely involved and maintaining a flow of information via the Internet for many years.

Those who are part of the sovereignty and independence movements will hopefully find some value in this blog, and I would actually hope that it inspires others of the many wonderfully intelligent and insightful voices in the movement to also start blogs as a way to reach out beyond our own circles and engage a wider audience with the discussion of Hawaii's future.
