Hawaii National Transitional Authority meeting

From Poka Laenui via Facebook: 

The third general meeting of the Hawaii National Transitional Authority will be held tomorrow 85-888 Farrington Hwy., Wai`anae, HI at the S&L Building. Meeting starts at 6:00 P.M. and will run for 3 hours.
The transitional authority meetings are meant to bridge Hawaii from its current state under U.S. control to liberation as an independent nation-state. There are many challenges to be met before we reach our goal. The largest challenges seem to be ourselves, our attitudes, and our lack of vision to all the possibilities of our future.

In the past two meetings, we began a process of facing these challenges, “peeling the onion, one leaf at a time.” From the adage, “a house divided against itself cannot stand,” we explored the areas of unity among various expressions of Hawaiian sovereignty, from immediate and absolute independence to a process of obtaining Federal recognition, and moving within the U.S. administration, to eventual independence from the U.S. We explored options of working within the U.S. administration and taking over place and positions in preparation for assuming independence.

Leon Siu on HuffPo: Hawaii no sanctuary for Hawaiians

Leon Siu has a piece in the Huffington Post pointing out the hypocrisy of the state of Hawaii challenging Trump’s travel ban in court and intending to declare itself a sanctuary state, while it “has gone overboard in utilizing the cover of U.S. immigration policies to apply the status of ‘undocumented’ to Hawaiian nationals — those Hawaiians living in the Hawaiian Islands and who assert they are subjects of the Hawaiian Kingdom, residing in the Hawaiian Kingdom.”

U.S. Attorney General doesn’t think Hawaii should be state?

From CNN

Attorney General Jeff Sessions said this week he was amazed that a judge in Hawaii could block President Donald Trump’s executive order halting immigration from several majority Muslim countries.

[…]

“I really am amazed that a judge sitting on an island in the Pacific can issue an order that stops the President of the United States from what appears to be clearly his statutory and Constitutional power.”

“Ku Kanaka: Stand Tall” film on Dr. Kanalu Young

Hawaiian who stood tall: UH-Hilo hosting free screening of film about educator, activist

The public is invited to the Big Island premiere of the film, “Ku Kanaka: Stand Tall,” about the late Dr. Kanalu Young and the Hawaiian sovereignty movement.

The free screening is at 5 p.m. Tuesday at Hale ‘Olelo, Ka Haka ‘Ula O Ke‘elikolani, College of Hawaiian Language, Lumi Pahiahia, University of Hawaii at Hilo.

Young was quadriplegic from a diving accident at the age of 15 who learned to heal from his trauma and became a Hawaiian studies professor at the UH-Manoa. An activist and chanter, Young emerged as a leader in the Native Hawaiian struggle for civil rights and helped his people heal from national injustice and embrace their Hawaiian identity.

The film screening will be followed by a panel discussion and Q&A. The panel includes:

• Marlene Booth, filmmaker and instructor, Academy for Creative Media at UH-Manoa.

 • Pua Mendonca, educator and Young’s friend.

• Shelbi-Ahlan Shimazu, UH-Hilo student.

• Dr. Jonathan Kay Kamakawiwo‘ole Osorio, a Hilo native and professor and interim dean of the Hawai‘inuiakea School of Hawaiian Knowledge, UH-Manoa.
