QUICK FACTS #7
CAUSING PEOPLE TO “SEE” US
The most important component of any nation is its people. When we say the Hawaiian Kingdom still exists, the big question is: Where are its people?
Starting 120 years ago, the US began altering the identity of our people changing us from Hawaiian to American — from Hawaiian subjects to U.S. citizens. Eventually it got to the point where Hawaiian nationality was completely forgotten. Our identity got so lost in the mix, it is no wonder the world today can’t “see“ us. In fact, we can hardly see ourselves!
This invisibility is the biggest advantage the US uses against us. Out of sight, out of mind. If people can’t see us, how can they see our country? How will they understand our country still exists? Right now they see us as friendly, compliant natives of an American island-state called “Hawaii” instead of the people of a sovereign, independent nation. Unfortunately, that is also how many of our people see themselves. Unless that perception changes among ourselves, others will not take us seriously.
The sooner we stop identifying ourselves as Americans (U.S. citizens) and acting as if we are Americans; and the sooner we start believing we are Hawaiian subjects and behave as such; the more the kingdom will come into focus… in our own minds-eye and in the eyes of the world.
Changing how we “see” ourselves is not as hard as you think. Start with one simple thing: Stop using the word “mainland” when referring to the United States. Every time you stop yourself from saying “mainland“ you’ll be recalibrating your mind into seeing the Hawaiian Islands, not America, is our main land.
As we assert our nationality and begin living as free Hawaiians, we assume the authority to operate our country with pono and kuleana, pushing aside the fraud of the U.S. and its fake “State of Hawaii.”
Ua mau ke ea o ka ʻāina i ka pono. The sovereignty (life) of the land is perpetuated in righteousness.
