Ke Aupuni Update

May 11, 2019

Keeping in touch and updated on activities regarding the restoration of Ke Aupuni o Hawaii, the Hawaiian Kingdom. 

Ua Mau Ke Ea O Ka Aina I Ka Pono.


The Quick Facts Series…





Hawaiians have been significant participants and contributors to various United Nations platforms since the 1970s. Over the past 10 years we have targeted the issue of restoring the Hawaiian Kingdom as an independent country.

Our primary strategy has been implementing a “public relations” campaign — to share our story, make friends, build partnerships, project optimism for a peaceful resolution to the problem. It has taken time to develop, but the building of relationships and credibility are now beginning to produce fruit — like the memos from UN expert, Dr. Alfred deZayas and the favorable coverage in diplomatic journals and the international press.

There are four main reasons we are involved with the United Nations:

1) To make certain that the United Nations, its officers and its agencies are duly informed that the United States’ presence in the Hawaiian Islands is in violation of customary international laws — and, specifically, in flagrant violation of the United Nations Charter;

2) To petition the UN General Assembly to hold the US accountable to its obligations under the UN Charter (with respect to Hawaii); and to utilize the UN system to bring the US into compliance with those international obligations;

3) To have access to member states of the UN (193 countries) to tell our story and enlist their help in the effort to Free Hawaii;

4) To partner with and assist the dozens of captured peoples and nations struggling for liberation.

We are not at the UN to seek “recognition” from, or to “join” the UN.

We are there to request the UN to act to bring the US in compliance to its international obligation with respect to the Hawaiian Islands and its people.   

Ua mau ke ea o ka ʻāina i ka pono. The sovereignty (life) of the land is perpetuated in righteousness.


The Campaign to Free Hawaiʻi is funded by people like YOU… 

We cannot do this crucial work without your help… your kokua. 

It takes funding to make these important accomplishments happen and we deeply appreciate all financial contributions, large or small. 

Any amount you contribute will make a huge impact on our ability to continue this work (and can be tax-deductible if needed). 

We have much to accomplish in 2019 and your contributions toward that are very important and needed.

Your KŌKUA is greatly appreciated!
