Constitution: OHA Cronies Want to Run Their Own Prison System, Police, and Judiciary

After kicking out the vast majority of Native Hawaiians, OHA cronies calling themselves an ‘Aha have today managed to write a so-called Constitution.

According to a 2:48pm tweet from OIWI TV, the only media outlet allowed to cover the 'Aha, the vote of the 119 assembled cronies was 88-30-1 to approve a new Hawaiian constitution.”  According to a January 6, 2016 news release from Nai Aupuni, 154 people were supposedly participating in the Aha which means that 35 of them could not be bothered to attend today's final session.

The constitution does not “restore” anything.  Instead they have invented a constitution designed to set the stage for 'negotiations' to form a fake Indian tribe in a place where no tribe—Indian or otherwise--has existed in the 500 years since the Tahitians invaded what we now call Hawaii and established themselves as a feudal Ali'i ruling over the indigenous maka'ainana or commoners.

The tribal ‘Constitution’ envisions a judiciary, police and tribal prison system which instantly possesses legal jurisdiction over any poor souls foolish enough to sign up. 

More profitably, the tribe would instantly possess jurisdiction over all land use decisions, thus obliterating Hawaii’s stringent environmental and planning controls for any developer willing to incorporate himself and his property into the tribal domain.

In a statement released to media, Grassroot Institute President Keli'i Akina points out: "The attempt to establish a single race-based nation violates the Aloha Spirit and goes against the will of the majority of Hawaiians. 

"This effort also violates the United States Constitution in that it has used public funds to establish a racially discriminatory process.

"Instead of wasting millions of public dollars on a divisive political movement, state government and Hawaiian leaders should use these financial resources to advance Hawaiians through education, housing, commerce, and health care."
