Declaration Reaffirming Independence and Protesting Na’i Aupuni and United States Federal Recognition

From Aha Aloha Aina

Whereas Kanaka Maoli are the first peoples of Ko Hawaiʻi Pae ʻĀina (the Hawaiian Archipelago) since time immemorial;

Whereas the Kingdom of Hawai‘i was recognized as a nation in 1843 by the then Family of Nations;

Whereas, the multi-ethnic Kingdom of Hawaiʻi – the majority of which were Kanaka Maoli – was overthrown in 1893 by a small clique of American businessmen with the assistance of the United States (US) military;

Whereas the living descendants of the citizens of the Kingdom of Hawai‘, like their ancestors, continue to assert unrelinquished sovereignty over Ko Hawai‘i Pae ‘Āina;

Whereas, in 2014 the Department of Interior (DOI) ignored all verbal testimony for restitution, reconciliation, self-determination, and Independence as the DOI continues to pursue the path of Federal Recognition for Hawai`i;

Therefore be it resolved that we the undersigned:

Reaffirm our right to Independence and self-determination;

Repudiate  Na‘i Aupuni‘s false claim to be the representative voice of the Kanaka Maoli people;

Reject the present and future US attempts through the DOI to Federally Recognize the Kanaka Maoli people on a par with a Native American Tribe under the document entitled “Procedures for Reestablishing a Formal Government-to-Government Relationship with the Native Hawaiian Community;”

Assert our  commitment to Uphold and Honor the ongoing endeavors to rebuild our Lāhui via, among other ways:

1) the reclamation of our gathering rights,

2) the spread of  ‘ōlelo Hawaii and the re-envisioning of our educational systems,

3) the revitalization of our traditional resource stewardship that assured food     sustainability through responsible stream, estuary/reef management as well as kalo farming and fishpond upkeep;

4)  resistance of the perils of climate change via  the pursuit of a truly independent economic system free from the strangle-hold of transnational corporations;

5) the re-invigoration of traditional means of healing such as ‘ai pono, ho‘oponopono, lomilomi, and the protection of wahi pana like Mauna Kea, Waipi‘o, and Haleakalā;

6) the expansion of  scholarly research to uncover the full range of traditional knowledge that our kūpuna gifted us;

Finally, we shall Unify all efforts to create an Independent Hawaiʻi, and so restore Ko Hawai‘i Pae ‘Āina to the descendants of the Hawaiian Kingdom for a better future for generations to come…
