Yesterday (23 Sept 2016) the US Government formally accepted existence of a Native Hawaiian Government - a cause for celebration.
It was reaffirmed (link) that Native Hawaiians are "a political community that represents the continuous existence of an inherent indigenous sovereign."
It's not treason or sedition for Hawaiians to create our governing entity. Our Native Hawaiian government might "reestablish a formal government-to-government relationship" with the USA... OR CHOOSE OTHERWISE (and the US Federal Govt. ruling explicitly affirms such possible scenario).
With a Native Hawaiian government, we can gradually correct local community problems... and also address other alliance possibilities.
First step is Native Hawaiian self-government pushing forward, imua.
