American Government’s Department of Interior is Coming on Strong with “Native Hawaiian Federal Recognition”

Initially I was going to name the title of this blog post “Maha’oi American Government is at it Again.” It’s truly unfortunate that Maha’oi American government refuses to leave us alone.

Kanaiolowalu is a Scam

We are already recognized by our kupuna.

Civil Beat has been coming out with articles some of which are biased while others are neutral as they should be in this matter as its editor is not a Hawaiian Kingdom citizen.

The latest one by Anita Hofschneider “Federal Recognition for Native Hawaiians – How We Got Here and What’s at Stake”
fails to mention the history of “federal recognition.” There are many books on this subject matter which people should check out directly instead of relying on other people to interpret or misinterpret history.

Unfortunately American government continues to push for “federal recognition” with Democrats leading the way ready to pounce on us.

Check out their questions that they want US to answer. Instead of being mindful of our privacy they want us to come out and talk to them. Many Hawaiian Nationals do not want to discuss anything with the U.S. Department of Interior. They want to be left alone.

Whether you decide to come out since they are being maha’oi or not, their maha’o meetings where they are all up in our face starts TODAY in Hawai’i.

We do not need or want American government to “recognize” us in order to steal more of our lands and treat us terribly like they treat our indigenous cousins.

Our kupuna already recognize us and that is ALL that matters. Make your voices heard in opposition of their proposed rule making which will lead our keiki and mo’opuna to their slaughter!

My stance is this. Say NO to YOUR demise. It’s simple really.

Here is the list of their meetings where they expect us to speak when we can CHOOSE not to speak but they insist on wanting to speak to us. So much for manners!
