„I have come to understand that the lawful political status of the Hawaiian Islands is that of a sovereign is that of a sovereign nation-state in continuity; but a nation-state that is under a strange form of occupation by the United States resulting from an illegal military occupation and a fraudulent annexation.“ ~ Dr. Alfred M. deZayas, United Nations Independent Expert, Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights

The Quick Facts Series…
THE SITUATION OF THE HAWAIIAN ISLANDS
QUICK FACT #3
Can Hawaii Function as a Free Country?
- Yes! Like many other small countries, Hawaii can function very nicely as an independent country. As an existing sovereign country, the Hawaiian Kingdom’s framework for self-governance is still intact with its constitution, treaties, session laws, civil codes, etc.
- Most of the systems, structures, mechanisms — and the people — necessary to run a modern, fully functioning country are already in place, right now…currently operating as the “State of Hawaii” and the United States of America.
- Think of it as a change of management — transitioning from being American-operated to being Hawaiian-operated. We would not have to re-build the entire operating system from scratch or even put it through major overhaul. The transition can be done with minor tweaks as a smooth and orderly change of management… with a friendly management style.
- Management Hawaiian-style would be people-friendly, infusing values like Aloha Aina into the operations of governance, economics, education, food production, land policies, security and other vital national functions.
YES! We can do this! Our kupuna criss-crossed the vast ocean with waʻa made of wood and leaves! They operated a productive, fully sustainable agricultural system that would be the envy of the world today… While the rest of the original peoples and nations were falling to colonialism and imperialism the Hawaiian Kingdom gained recognition as an sovereign, independent state. So, YES! We can do this!
