Another Living Hawaiian Treasure: Leon Siu

Another Living Hawaiian Treasure: Leon Siu

In a concerted effort to try to pit Hawaiian against Hawaiian Honolulu Magazine editors purposefully choose an inflammatory title, “Contenders to the Throne,” while purposefully placing other noteable Hawaiians like Bumpy Kanahele and Leon Siu on page four thus excluding them from being profiled which made it seem as those who were not profiled were responsible for their placement on the fourth page.

However each of them have done something. Whether we agree with them 100% or not. Whether we agree with their motives and/or objectives one advantage is that all of them help to keep the Hawaiian Kingdom visible. IMHO we need to remember that.

This epitomizes editorial control which can be used to try to pit Hawaiian against Hawaiian.

Fortunately many Hawaiians are still talking to each other.

This also epitomizes the importance that IMHO we Hawaiians continue to work together as *one* for the bettermen of *all*… for our mo’opuna 🙂

E malama pono.
