• The Year of the Hawaiian Kingdom …
It’s good to learn about what happened in the past to better understand our present situation. But it’s now time to focus on the future. What do we envision a Free Hawaii to look like? We have to shift our attention to planning for and building toward the realization of a thriving, sovereign, independent nation. To help in this reset, we’re inviting everyone to make 2019 the Year of the Hawaiian Kingdom. It’s an opportunity to not only celebrate the fact that we are a nation in continuity, but we are a nation with a promising future. This reset is going to require imagination, dialog, strategizing, talent, resources, wisdom, optimism, courage and lots of Aloha ʻĀina. Be thinking about this and stay tuned…
• 126 Years Ago… 
…in total disregard for international laws, the United States landed troops in Honolulu to provide military support for a group of insurgents intent on deposing the Queen, seizing control of the government and handing the Hawaiian Kingdom over to the United States. The actions of those involved violated our country’s sovereignty, hijacked the people’s land and other fundamental rights  It also set a precedent… a working template for international bullying and abuse by the United States and other big powers. Over the past 126 years, the US has used this template for regime change and repeated this pattern of bad behavior many times, destabilizing and overthrowing governments at the whim of American commercial and political interests. Greed and conquest are certainly not new, but what America did to the Hawaiian Islands — taking over a country while making it look consensual and legitimate… and getting away with it — led to increasingly egregious criminal behavior. An argument can be made that the United Statesʻ current arrogant habit of interfering, disrupting, invading and fostering of regime change had its genesis in the criminal acts the US committed against the Kingdom of the Hawaiian Islands 126 years ago.
• Has Anyone Seen any Mention of the 60th Anniversary of the Fake State? 
Ten years ago, the State of Hawaii’s 50th Anniversary celebration fizzled. Our protests of the Fake State drew way more global attention than the stateʻs furtive jubilee. This year, the stateʻs 60th Anniversary is so far nowhere to be seen. Maybe it’s because state officials know it’s a fake state and not something to celebrate. This would be a good time to ask state officials a few niggling questions like:
• When and how did the Hawaiian Kingdom become a possession of the United States?
• Where is the treaty of annexation?
• Why wasn’t “independence“ on the ballot of the 1959 plebiscite?
• Who voted in the 1959 plebiscite?
• Was the 1959 plebiscite legitimate?
• How did Hawaiians become US citizens?
• Are all Hawaiians US citizens?
• Do Hawaiian nationals living in the Hawaiian Islands have rights?
• Is the state going to stop harassing Hawaiian nationals?
It would be interesting to get a state response to these questions.

Some Highlights of a Significant Year of Progress for the Hawaiian Kingdom
The International Scene
The job of the Ministry of foreign Affairs for the Kingdom of the Hawaiian Islands, is to develop friendly relations with other countries; to inform the international community about the situation in the Hawaiian Islands; to seek support for our cause and find ways that we can help others. We have been doing this for nearly 20 years, concentrating the last 12 years on building a consistent presence at the UN.
This past year, we visited the UN in Geneva four times to represent the interests of the Hawaiian Kingdom. While there, we participated in more than a dozen panels (Dr. deZayas was a co-panelist on at least 10 of those events), discussing aspects of human rights and other matters pertaining to our situation in Hawaii as well as standing in solidarity with others like Alaska, West Papua, Trieste, Kashmir, Western Sahara, Mauritius, Sri Lanka, Myanmar and more.
We also visited the UN in New York four times this year to engage with special committees of the UN General Assembly, and with other agencies, individuals and non-governing organizations (NGOs). My New York home base is an office across the street from the UN Headquarters that is also home to a network of more than 500 NGOs. In New York we also have regular meetings with the ambassadors posted there from various countries — especially from the Pacific Islands — updating them on our plans and progress.
Building a consistent presence at the UN has been an arduous and costly undertaking, but it is beginning to produce results — like the deZayas memorandum — and the willingness of certain actors in the international community ready to assist us when the proper time comes.
Some other trips to attend international meetings were:
• South Korea for a conference on peacemaking and reunification between North and South Korea (with follow-up meetings in New York);
• London for a Kashmiri-sponsored symposium on developing international media relations for countries seeking independence;
• Taiwan for the inaugural Global Indigenous Economics Council conference on cultural and economic sustainability;
New York Global Inter-Faith Symposium on the role of religion and the work of religious organizations in international matters.
A lot is happening internationally. After 12 years of using friendly persuasion in various venues of the United Nations, with foreign ministers, diplomats and heads of states from numerous countries… and with exposure in the international press, people are beginning to understand our situation.  Our narrative of who we are, what really happened, what the current conditions are, and the goal to restore our kingdom, has begun to sink in. Basically, we have been able to convince people in the international community that: 1) the so-called “US State of Hawaii“ is a fraud; and 2) the Hawaiian Kingdom still exists and is on the rebound.
UN Resolutions
In 2018, two resolutions were drafted to be submitted to the UN General Assembly. We expect to persuade a significant majority of the UN member states to vote to pass these resolutions that will ultimately cause the UN to no longer recognize the U.S. claim to the Hawaiian Islands as legitimate.
An International Dispute
A number of other actions have been filed in international venues, including ones by Hawaiians to halt the flagrant violations of private property rights (original land titles) by foreigners in collusion with the courts of the fake State of Hawaii. These challenges are being pursued as matters of international dispute, not within the municipal jurisdiction of the United States. Raising our complaints to the level of international dispute will confirm the Hawaiian Kingdom as a sovereign state and put a stop to the years of illegal land grabbing.
The deZayas Memorandum
The memorandum from UN official, Independent Expert Dr. Alfred M. deZayas, triggered much excitement and several actions are being taken, citing the memo about the misapplication of US/State of Hawaii laws in the Hawaiian Islands. The memo fully supports our position that the Hawaiian Kingdom still exists and the US is obligated under international law to vacate its claims of sovereignty over the Hawaiian Islands. The deZayas memo has led to an increase in direct challenges mounted by Hawaiian nationals against the puppet governing system installed by the US. And another memo is on its way.
Security for Hawaiian Nationals
In the Hawaiian Kingdom, people have the right to travel and conduct business affairs in peace. But in the “State of Hawaii” people who identify themselves as Hawaiian nationals living in the Hawaiian Kingdom (as opposed to US Citizens living in the State of Hawaii) are being denied those most fundamental rights. Hawaiian nationals have been getting abused by a corrupt system bent on serving the interests of the fake state rather than the rights of the people… in particular, the rights of Hawaiian nationals. In 2018 plans were made to begin to alleviate this problem. It will be introduced in the first half of 2019.
Lā Ho ʻ iho ʻ i Ea 
175th Anniversary Celebration
The celebration of Lā Ho ʻiho ʻi Ea — Sovereignty Restoration Day — on Sunday, July 29 was the best yet!  Maika ʻi loa! With the biggest crowd in modern times, we celebrated the historical event of Great Britain ʻs return of control of the Hawaiian Islands to the proper ruler, King Kamehameha III.
King Kamehameha III Statue
On July 31, the actual 175th anniversary of Lā Ho ʻiho ʻi Ea — Sovereignty Restoration Day — the city unveiled and dedicated the newly commissioned statue of King Kamehameha III. There were great speeches showing we have come a long way. To have City and State officials recount the history and significance of Lā Ho ʻiho ʻi Ea and pay homage and respect to King Kamehameha III definitely raised public awareness of the true greatness of the Hawaiian Kingdom… This kind of change in perception and understanding will undoubtedly help in the advancement of the restoration of the Hawaiian Kingdom.
Lā Kū ʻ oko ʻ
This year, 2018 was the 175 th anniversary of an historic moment…
On Nov. 28, 1843 Great Britain and France jointly recognized the Sandwich Islands (the Kingdom of the Hawaiian Islands) as a sovereign state — an equal among the major powers of the world. This singular event established our position as a sovereign independent country and provides the foundation for our assertion that the Hawaiian Kingdom was never extinguished and continues (though greatly impaired and concealed) to exist as a sovereign, independent state.
For more Important Dates Observed in the Kingdom in 2018 see the attached pdf.
These are just a few 2018 highlights in the reactivation of our country as a pre-existing sovereign state. Mahalo nui loa to the many, many more of our courageous Aloha ‘Åina who have been standing for our country every single day! For all those on social media, in the courts, in jail, on the front lines, researching, studying, speaking to your friends, speaking to your neighbors, to strangers, to the oppressors… giving of your mana’o, time, talents and resources, your prayers, and most of all… your ALOHA… to all of you… MAHALO NUI LOA! 
I KŪ MAU MAU!  I KŪ WĀ!

The Quick Facts Series…

THE SITUATION OF 

THE HAWAIIAN ISLANDS

QUICK FACTS #5

What Do We Expect To Accomplish?

The objective of the Free Hawaii movement is to reinstate the Hawaiian Islands as a sovereign, independent country… meaning, to restore the Hawaiian Islands to its status as a full-fledged internationally recognized country, in control of all the lands and seas, assets and resources that comprise the Hawaiian Islands Archipelago.

It means the United States would relinquish its control over the Hawaiian Islands and the lawful governing body of the Hawaiian Islands would assume kuleana to govern and manage the country for the benefit of the people. The United States and it’s puppet government, the fake “State of Hawaii,”would no longer be in charge.

Think of it as a change of management — the infrastructure and operations would pretty much remain the same; but the manager and style of management would change… from Americancontrol to Hawaiian kuleana.

To accomplish this requires the United States government to make a peaceful, orderly exit from the Hawaiian Islands Archipelago, ensuring the lawful government of the Hawaiian Islands is in charge. The U.S. would also be required to withdraw its military bases and accept responsibility and make reparations for damages caused.

It is not going to be easy. The United States knows it was wrong in taking over the Hawaiian Islands, yet for many selfish reasons it does not want to give up Hawaii. So the U.S. has been tap-dancing around the issue.

How to get them to stop tap-dancing and get off the stage? By getting on that stage and outshining the imposter… In this case it means, to stand up our country for the world to see, focusing the spotlight on our hula of aloha and goodwill and rallying support to mount a huge, global “Free Hawaii”campaign… and cause the U.S. to relinquish the stage.

Sounds simplistic? Yes, but that’s basically it. The legal and political matters are fairly cut and dry…  if it was just that, we win! The real challenge we have is “marketing“. People have to “see” us! They have to know who we are and what happened and… where we are going.

We have a very compelling story to tell. A story of courage, beauty, kindness, grace… of Aloha in the face of adversity. To correct the grave injustice done to our beloved people and country, we must get our story out — first to our own people, then to the world community — of how we, under our own management, can set things right and move toward a brighter future.

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

In Quick Facts installment #6 we’ll discuss what we have to do here at home to cause people to see us.

• The Bolomet Effect…
Routh Bolomet’s fight to save her land has not only exposed rampant corruption in the „real estate“ industry in collusion with the „State of Hawaii“ courts, but it’s raised issues of international law. The memorandum issued by UN Independent Expert, Dr. Alfred deZayas confirmed what we have been saying for years: that the United States‘ presumption of sovereignty over the Hawaiian Islands is unlawful, and that Hawaii is, as Dr. deZayas put it, under a „strange form of occupation.“
Dr. deZayas‘ memorandum  has precipitated several actions, like Councilwoman Jen Ruggles‘ query to the Hawaii County Council whether her service on the council constitutes a war crime for which she could be held criminally liable. The answer from the Hawaii County corporate counsel (attorney) was in essence, „just ignore it like we usually do“! This is not only inadequate, it is terribly irresponsible legal advice. Incredibly he’s admitting that the county’s standing policy is to just ignore international law!
Not only is Ms Ruggles‘ question still unanswered, the same question has now been asked by the Waianae Neighborhood Board of the Corporate Council of the City and County of Honolulu… and other neighborhood boards are contemplating asking too. It will be very interesting to watch the U.S. claim to the Hawaiian Islands unravel as the question wends its way up the ladder to the State Attorney General, then to the US Department of Justice, then the Department of State and…. ??

• Celebrating La Ku’oko’a – Independence Day

On November 28, 1843 (175 years ago) France and Great Britain  formally recognized the Sandwich Islands ( the Hawaiian Kingdom)  as a sovereign, independent nation-state. King Kamehameha III declared the date a national holiday and La Ku’oko’a became the most celebrated holiday in the Kingdom for over 50 years! 
 
That is, until 1895 when  the Republic of Hawaii,  the insurgency  that displaced the Queen and the Hawaiian Kingdom, ordered the American Thanksgiving Day  holiday  to be celebrated instead of La Lu’oko’a. It so happened that year, the American Thanksgiving Day fell on November 28. 
 
During the period of American domination, the Hawaiian Kingdom high holiday of  La Ku’oko’a  was overshadowed and lost to memory … until about 25 years ago when Kekuni Blaisdell and other patriots revived the observance of  La Kuʻokoʻa  and La Hoʻihoʻi Ea. Ever since,  these holidays have been increasingly   celebrated  with events in several communities throughout our nation.
But let’s see if we can turn this 175th anniversary into an opportunity to spread awareness of the significance of La Ku’oko’a where it really counts… our friends and families.. 
 
What if we each took a few minutes at our Thanksgiving dinners to share with our families and friends about the significance of Hawaii’s Independence Day and to say how thankful we are that our country was recognized as a sovereign nation; a nation that is reawakening!). In one day we would effectively  reach  thousands more of our ‚ohana in the intimacy of our homes with the story of Hawaii’s Independence Day…more than we would have at a big public rally. When we tell our country’s story, we affirm the narrative; it  becomes more personal; it becomes our story… and the awakening spreads.
 
Attached is a pdf of a flyer about La Ku’oko’a that you can print out and use to share with your ‚ohana. 
 
Let’s bring back our holiday, La Ku’oko’a, by giving thanks for Ke Aupuni o Ko Hawai’i Pae ʻĀina.

Mauna Kea – It’s time to play the jurisdiction card.
On October 30, the Hawaii State Supreme Court ruled to allow the construction of the Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT) to proceed. The decision is a disappointment to the Native Hawaiian cultural practitioners and protectors who asserted Mauna Kea is sacred and that it is being desecrated. The matter is not pau yet.
First, this recent decision can be challenged all the way up to the US Supreme Court. Second, the permitting process could take another two years. Third, the protectors are committed and prepared to continue blocking construction, to precipitate further court challenges.
The builders said two years ago that if there were any more delays they would have to cut their losses and move on. Well, that was two years ago and they are still here. Yet even with their win in the court last week, two more years are looming before they can start construction. You would think they would just pick up and leave… unless the fix is in to fast-track the permitting process… again.
The decision was not surprising. Hawaiians trying to win the case on the basis that the TMT proponents were insensitive to „native rights“ under U.S. law was a weak argument; too many subjective factors. What should have been argued by the protectors was: jurisdiction.The issue is not whether or not the state is in compliance with it policies and procedural requirements, but whether the state has any authority at all in the Hawaiian Islands, especially over lands.
The mistake is, trying to make the state comply to its own laws, when the real issue is that their American laws are invalid in the Kingdom of the Hawaiian Islands. Compliance is not the issue; jurisdiction is. By arguing over compliance to American laws, rules and regulations, one accepts American jurisdiction. Instead of Hawaiians arguing over compliance to American law, we should be insisting on compliance to Hawaiian Kingdom law.
How about in the next round with TMT, we challenge the State to prove lawful jurisdiction in the Kingdom of the Hawaiian Islands.
Election   
The fake election just completed in the fake State of Hawaii was another overwhelming victory for the chief oppressor: the Democratic Party of Hawaii. This is the party that swept into power in 1956, ushered in “statehood” in 1959 and has literally been the local muscle doing the bidding of the U.S. in Hawaii from day one of statehood… The Democratic Party controls the government, the laws, the lands, the commerce and the people of the Hawaiian Islands.
Their dominance is so complete that the fake-state is synonymous with the Democratic Party. So when we talk about boondoggles like TMT, the Rail, Kaka’ako, Ho’opili… When we talk about the Akaka Bill, Fed Wreck, DOI hearings… malfeasance in OHA, DLNR and DHHL… runaway development and exploitation… homelessness, foreclosures, evictions… the crushing cost of living… etc. it is all at the feet of the dictator in charge… the Democratic Party of Hawaii.
Impact of the  Bolomet  foreclosure case   
As mentioned in the last Ke Aupuni Update, Judge Castagnetti reversed her previous ruling and put the foreclosure actions against Routh on hold for now. As to the bigger question of jurisdiction, the judge appears to have put it off until the next court date in February 2019.
This new development has caused a lot of excitement throughout the lahui. This could have a huge impact on pending cases of Hawaiian patriots standing their ground against the unlawful system.
Community meetings are being held throughout the islands to discuss the implications. Strategies are being developed to assert Hawaiian nationality. At least two neighborhood boards on Oahu have inquired of the State Attorney General whether serving on neighborhood board under an illegal governing body of a foreign state constitute criminal violations under international law. It will be interesting to see how the AG responds.
Foreign Affairs 
The momentum is building. Having a consistent, friendly presence at the UN over the years as a non-member petitioner is beginning to produce results. Dr. deZayasʻ memorandum is one of them. Several other initiatives are in the works and will begin to surface soon.
During September, I attended back-to-back, the session of the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva and the opening week of the UN General Assembly in New York. Several valuable new connections were made. In October, I was invited to participate in an international economic conference in Taiwan, hosted by the government of the Republic of China (Taiwan).
I am headed to Geneva and New York in December to pick up the momentum in advancing our initiatives in those two places, and to brief our friends in the international community on the progress being made here in the islands.
Celebrating La Kuʻokoʻa
Besides the numerous celebrations all over our country (the Hawaiian Islands), places like California and New York are also set to celebrate this important  Kingdom  holiday. Make it a point either attend an event near you … or organize one yourself! Whatever you do, video it and post it to Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc. We want the world to know the Hawaiian Kingdom is alive and celebrating!

From Leon Siu, Hawaiian National
Aloha kakou,
Aloha from Geneva
I am currently at the  Palais des Nations, headquarters for the United Nations in Geneva… (this is my fourth time this year)… Where I’m continuing to pursue support for the Hawaiian Kingdom from foreign diplomats, UN officials, the press and others that congregate here at the UN . From here I’ll go to New York where the heads of states and other dignitaries will be gathered for the opening of the 73rd Session of the UN General Assembly.
Some very positive signs are developing. Despite the crisis and chaos going on in parts of the world, states (countries) are becoming more and more interested in the Hawaii situation. Some of the diplomats who used to politely nod and say “thatʻs interesting” or “I wish you all the best” or “you’ve got a big task ahead of you” have recently started to say, “How do you think we can help?” or “have you tried this…?” or “maybe you should talk to…”
Another recent development is on the day I arrived on my previous visit to Geneva in June to attend the UN Human Rights Council, the United States announced they were immediately pulling out of the Human Rights Council.
Several people jokingly said, “See, you arrive and the US retreats!” or something to that effect. But itʻs partially true. Weʻre not the only ones putting on the pressure, but we (Hawaii and Alaska), have been making the U.S. uncomfortable by continually raising the question of how the U.S. came to be in control and how we came to be integrated as “states” into the United States; and the numerous human rights violations resulting from the prolonged occupation of Hawaii. And when other countries started to ask those questions, it made the U.S. representatives visibly nervous.
The US has left the Human Rights Council, leaving us, Hawaii and Alaska, to press our concerns at this important forum without opposition.
Speaking of the UN  Dr. Alfred deZayas, the UN Independent Expert (Emeritus)  for the promotion of a democratic and equitable international order, sends his regards to all, and is pleased that his memorandum has been helpful to us. As he says, “Facts are facts, you canʻt argue with the facts.” He’s on holiday with his wife who just retired after 30 years as a UN official. Theyʻre on their way from Switzerland to Holland… riding bicycles.
And speaking of the memo  the deZayas memorandum has given quite a boost to our advocacy for a Free Hawaii. Already itʻs being used by some in the following ways –
Councilwoman Jen Ruggles asked the Hawaii County Council whether she is committing a war crime by serving on the council, a governing body that appears to be functioning  in violation of the Laws of Occupation. She requested an opinion from County Corporate Counsel  Joe Kamelamela who basically said: No you wonʻt incur any criminal liability. That was a highly flippant answer with no facts or arguments to back his “legal“ opinion.  It doesn’t appear that Kamelamela has any expertise or background in international law, therefore, he is incompetent to render an opinion. The best and most honest answer he could have given was: “I donʻt know” and then call in someone who is competent in international humanitarian law. So thereʻs an impasse. Jen Ruggles wants an answer and wonʻt serve until she gets an answer. And the county/state is scared to death of finding that answer.
Routh Bolometʻs fight for her lands is what triggered the memo from Dr. deZayas. The whole thing is too complex to get into right now, but you should hear Routh’s story  when you can by watching it here –  A Visit With Routh Bolomet
In a nutshell, several years ago Routh went to the county/state to ask to see  the title for the property she „owned.” In getting the runaround, but being very persistent, she uncovered not just a can of worms, but the whole nest of vipers that comprise the great Hawaii land scam. To shut her up from asking uncomfortable questions, the lending institution, bank, insurance company  and the courts conspired (colluded?) and initiated foreclosure proceedings on her property, committing all kinds of fraud and other criminal acts in the process.
On Tuesday September 18 Routh will be appearing before (confronting?) one of the two state judges to whom deZayas addressed his memorandum. It should be very interesting, to say the least. Routh is asking everyone who can to show your support by being at the courtroom tomorrow, Tuesday, September 18, 9:30 AM, 777 Punchbowl Street, State Circuit Court Building, 4th Floor, courtroom of Judge Jeanette A. Castagnetti.
Aloha Aina,
Leon Siu

Lā Hoʻihoʻi Ea 
175th Anniversary Celebration
The celebration of Lā Hoʻihoʻi Ea — Sovereignty Restoration Day — on Sunday, July 29 was the best yet!  Maikaʻi loa! With the biggest crowd in modern times, we celebrated the historical event of Great Britainʻs return of control of the Hawaiian Islands to the proper ruler, King Kamehameha III.
The two-year rejuvenation and rededication of Thomas Square (by the City and County of Honolulu) restores the park as a place of historical significance… on par with ʻIolani Palace and Maunaʻala. The restoration was well done and much appreciated, especially for this seminal celebration.
King Kamehameha III Statue
On July 31, the actual 175th anniversary of Lā Hoʻihoʻi Ea — Sovereignty Restoration Day — the city unveiled and dedicated the newly commissioned statue of King Kamehameha III. There were great speeches recounting the history and significance of Lā Hoʻihoʻi Ea. Mayor Caldwellʻs speech was exceptional as was Puakea Nogelmeierʻs and Clarke Brightʻs… and the sculptor, Thomas Jay Warren.
The level of honor, credit and recognition of Kamehameha Ekoluʻs character and accomplishments was greatly emphasized. To have City and State officials pay such homage and respect to the King definitely raised public awareness of the true greatness of the Hawaiian Kingdom… and, hopefully, advanced the notion that restoring the Hawaiian Kingdom — again — would be a good thing.
TMT Ruling
On August 8, the fake-state Supreme Court unanimously ruled against requiring another contested case hearing over the project’s sublease. This “victory” for the TMT moves it closer to being built… according to the policies and rules of the fake-state.
The 5-0 decision leaves only one more question pending: whether the $1.4 billion TMT project will be issued a conditional use permit allowing it to proceed with construction on Mauna Kea.
Or so they think…
The real issues are: Who has title to the land? and Who has jurisdiction over the land? Those questions should be coming front and center soon. And the answers will not be favorable to the fake-State of Hawaii/USA cartel.
International
A lot is happening internationally. After 12 years of using friendly persuasion in various venues of the United Nations, with foreign ministers, diplomats and heads of states from numerous countries… and with the international press… we have made great progress.
People are beginning to ʻget itʻ.  Our narrative of who we are, what really happened, what the current situation is, and the goal to restore our kingdom, has begun to sink in. Basically, we have been able to convince people in the international community that: 1) the so-called “US State of Hawaii“ is bogus; and 2) the Hawaiian Kingdom still exists and is on the rebound.
A memo was sent in February by UN expert, Dr. Alfred deZayas, to two „State of Hawaii“ judges, advising those judges that under international law, their country, the USA, has no lawful jurisdiction in the Hawaiian Islands because the Kingdom of the Hawaiian Islands is still a sovereign, independent state.
The memo has triggered several actions, one of which is a lawsuit filed by Dr. Keanu Sai to compel President Trump to comply with the Laws of Occupation by administering the laws of the Hawaiian Kingdom in the Hawaiian Islands… instead of continuing to impose U.S. laws.
In another action, are working to draft two resolutions to be submitted to the UN General Assembly this Fall. We expect to persuade a significant majority of the UN member states to vote to pass these resolutions. This will ultimately cause the UN to no longer recognize the U.S. claim to the Hawaiian Islands as legitimate.
A number of other actions have been filed in various venues, including ones by a number of Hawaiians to halt the flagrant violations of private property rights (original land titles) by foreigners in collusion with the courts of the State of Hawaii. These challenges will put a stop to the years of illegal land grabbing.
