Kapu Aloha = Non-Violence [Loving the Enemy]

Native Hawaiian struggles to protect Maunakea are deliberately rooted in the protocol of Kapu Aloha, a highly-dignified method of loving outreach & non-violent resistance.

❤️ Kapu Aloha is akin to the satyagraha bravery which helped deflate British colonial domination of India. Please recognize it is difficult to maintain loving respect for people & powers wanting to shove you from your land, to radiate compassion toward continental Americans who hold themselves superior, who ignore native inheritance, fail to respect community traditions, and snub locals as livestock.

Of course, Hawaiians understand most Americans are bred on shock & awe, and that a few enemy beheadings would surely discourage toxic intruders and unwelcome property speculators.

Yet Hawai'i's warriors, following the example of Queen Lili'uokalani, selected the non-violent path of LOVE. ❤️ Aloha ❤️

Her Majesty Hawaiian Queen Lili'uokalani
yielded authority to superior force of the
United States of America to avoid loss of life

Spit on ALOHA

Hawaiian Neutrality kindled international trade as Crossroads of the vast Pacific Ocean. Hawaii'i's 19th-century Treaties of Commerce & Navigation confirmed peace, impartiality and neutrality when conflict raged elsewhere, with sanctuary for warships.

Until the American-led overthrow of 1893, international law recognized the Hawaiian Kingdom as a neutral State.

Yankee Military Bases Violate Hawaiian Neutrality.

Shut the Bases. Withdraw US troops. Return Stolen Land. Don't spit on Aloha.

Tea, Salt & Mauna?

Every day at Hawai'i's Puʻuhonua o Puʻuhuluhulu, people learn in a loving community what being a PROTECTOR means: Aloha ʻĀina - Love the Land.

Aggressive intruders abuse Hawaiian resources. shove aside locals, illegally rip-up family graves, and disrespect the Hawaiian nation.

US Military Occupation is increasingly ugly.
Military force did not conquer Hawai'i or extinguish our neutrality.

LOVE continues. Ku kia’i mauna.  ❤️

Kū Haʻaheo e Kuʻu Hawaiʻi

I've lots of family & friends actively protecting Hawai'i. Many struggle for Aloha ʻĀina or conservation, some seek to remedy theft & abuse of Hawaiian lands by the US military.

Native Hawaiians & allies beg YOU please recognize -- Hawaiians are not a dead people.

Despite decades of colonization and destruction of national neutrality and our inheritance, Hawaiians maintain peaceful, loving communities in Hawai'i and around the world.

Please listen to this chant:
Kū Haʻaheo - Hawaiʻi Loa Medley

"Kū haʻaheo e kuʻu Hawaiʻi" by Na Hinaleimoana Wong-Kalu
Title means "Stand Tall My Hawai'i"

Revive Hawaiian Neutrality Treaties


Honor Treaties of Neutrality.
Yankee Please Withdraw Your Military from Hawai'i.

Colonial Bostonians did not despise tea. Gandhi-ji & India's satyagrahi did not detest salt. Hawaiians don't hate astronomy.
US Colonial Occupation is intolerable.

TMT Hawai'i is a Trojan Horse

The USA gained use of Pu'u Loa (Pearl Harbor) for a coaling & repair station by Treaty with the Hawaiian Kingdom (see Supplementary Convention of 6 Dec 1884, link).

The USA later schemed to overthrow & supplant the Hawaiian Kingdom's government, and under protest, forcibly annexed Hawai'i as US territory. Pearl Harbor and many other huge tracts of land were forcibly taken for exclusive use by the US military. Islanders lived under martial law for many years.

The US grabbed the highly-sacred 3000-acre Mokapu peninsula, exhumed thousands of Hawaiian graves, and built what's now Marine Corps Base Hawaii.

The USA showed it's deeply-rooted prejudice with the death of Hawaiian athlete Joseph Kahahawai. White colonial torture and murder was put on trial in Honolulu. Convicted of manslaughter, the killers received a commuted sentence of one hour - served over tea in the office of the Territorial Governor. [US Naval Officer Thomas Massie, his mother-in-law, and two Naval enlisted men impersonating the police, kidnapped, tortured & murdered a local man who'd been accused of rape] (link).

The US took Pūowaina above Honolulu, a deeply-significant & sacred site, and built their National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific (Punchbowl) for the US armed forces.

The USA honors inheritance among a certain class of Americans, but ignores birthright among those adjudged lesser people. US law & justice still fail to remedy theft of land from Native Hawaiians; other North American native families are also denied inheritance. Recent migrant settlers resenting native wealth, coveting native lands & resources, have stolen & murdered. These crimes must stop, and restitution must begin.

Now on Hawai'i's sacred Maunakea, the authorities build destructive miles of paved roadways & more off-limits facilities. They claim both science & local communities will benefit from a TMT - Thirty Meter Telescope. Expect further desecration from "military necessity" = A’ole TMT (no)

The USA shamelessly cheats, lies, and steals in Hawai'i. Peace-loving Hawaiians are not fools, and we're not deceived by decades of false-friendly smiles from scheming intruders. Aloha!

People as Livestock?

Colonial powers see Native people as expendable livestock, as cowish critters collateral with stolen land.

Selfish history teaches of discovery - ignoring colonial expansionist genocide.

Hostile miscalculations by Capt. James Cook in Hawai'i brought death at the Battle of Kealakekua on 14 Feb 1779. This defeat of British Empire expeditionary forces led by naval officer Cook is misreported, censored and downplayed by imperial histories, but some Hawaiians recognize a significant victory. Locals must somehow resist when aggressive intruders break the peace & local protocol.

How we view history is important!
