Names not to be forgotten, 1893.

THE NATURE OF THE HAWAIIAN FLAG.

The Hawaiian Flag is one of the most glorious Flags, and it is so pleasant to look upon, and like the nature of the Flag, so too the People.

The brown-skinned [ili ulaula] Hawaiian Lahui are a kind People, are modest, treasure malihini, are welcoming, have open hearts, and so forth.

But even if the Hawaiian Flag and her People are kindhearted, they have been trampled upon by the descendants of the missionaries, and are being paid back with poisonous words, even more so than the Auhuhu.¹

It is being said that they are a Lahui that is stupid, know nothing, pagan, idol worshiper, and on and on.

That is what we the Hawaiian People get in return.

But despite all of their abuse, we are not full of hate at the actions of these missionary descendants.

The people who tried to grab our beloved land; and their names shall not be forgotten by this Lahui.

They being: Albert Francis Judd [Alapaki F. Kauka]; William Richards Castle [W. R. Kakela]; Lorrin Andrews Thurston [L. A. Kakina]; Amos Francis Cooke [F. Kuke]; William Brewster Oleson [W. B. Olesona]; Henry Martyn Whitney [H. M. Wini]; Dr. Charles M. Hyde [Kauka Hai]; Sereno Edwards Bishop [Kahunapule Bihopa], who was raised by a Hawaiian woman at Kona, Hawaii; Sanford Ballard Dole [S. B. Dole]; William Owen Smith [W. O. Smith]; the Emerson brothers [na hoahanau Emekona]; William W. Hall [Wile Holo]; and some others.

All of them is who brought down our Flag, by lowering it and raising the American flag in its place.

However, under God’s benevolence, our flag has been returned to its rightful place.

So therefore, O Hawaiian People, we are prepared to lay out before you the full list of names of these great transgressors.

KE KULANA O KA HAE HAWAII.

The wait continues, 1893–2018.

RESTORATION DAY OF HAWAII NEI.

In the first half of the month of February, 1843, Lord George Paulet [Lo Keoki] arrived on the shores of Hawaii nei, and due to some things he thought were right, he took down the Hawaiian Flag and raised the British Flag, and this was the first time that the sovereignty of our land was taken. With that act however, the Royal standard [hae Kalaunu] was left alone along with the Sovereign in His place; this was not usurped; and peace was kept by the Hulumanu, the soldiers of Kauikeaouli at the time, and the makaainana remained then under the rule of the King, and they kneeled and prayed to God for the return of the sovereignty of the land to righteousness.

THE ROYAL STANDARD OF HAWAII.

In the history of Hawaii nei, from the time the Royal Standard of the Monarchs began first to flutter until 10 o’clock of the morning of Wednesday, January 18, 1893, for the very first time the famous beautiful flag was lowered because of a separate power, not because of the power of the Ruler of the land. For at that hour, Queen LILIUOKALANI left the Throne, in accordance with what She agreed to in Her Declaration of Protest, Continue reading

W. D. Alexander on crown lands, 1893.

Assisting with Land Rights

The Crown Lands [Aina Leialii] were lands of Kauikeaouli that he set aside for himself and his descendants, when he divided the lands of his Kingdom between himself, the Alii, and the makaainana. In 1865, it was decided by the Supreme Court [Ahahookolokolo Kiekie] that these lands would be inherited by the person who sits on the Throne. The Legislature just passed a law to establish a managing Commission which will put these lands in order. Being there are no descendants of Kamehameha I that are living, therefore, the lands will now go to the people, that is they were released by the Legislature to help the Chief Executive [Luna Hooko kiekie] in his office.

Being that this office is no more and is of naught at this time, those lands are under the jurisdiction of the Government. Continue reading
