Hawaiian Reconciliation


Since 1893 the USA admitted multiple times to illegal aggression in Hawai'i. But Hawaiian lands are still occupied. The intruders fabricated at least seven military golf courses on O'ahu! Native Hawaiians suffer everyday as our inheritance remains stolen & misused. 

Today's diverse communities, built on Hawaiian culture, will strengthen when indigenous inheritance is properly addressed or compensated. Surely all in Hawai'i are challenged to reconcile.


Unreconciled gaps exist between intruder communities & descendants of The People of Old. We've sovereignty issues. Hawaiian communal land tenure exists alongside fee simple ownership. As for population, the repeat tourist, the fourth-generation immigrant, the native Kimo of no fixed address - who is Hawaiian? 

We must decide - and not look away to fuckin' Washington DC for guidance or revenge.

All can benefit to be more inclusive, legally & peacefully acknowledging inheritance of properties and compensation for indigenous people and their families.
