He Mana'o Pono - A statement of Support

  • By: Kekuewa Kikiloi
  • Target: Office of Hawaiian Affairs and the United States of America

 

As people that value justice, righteous struggle, and facilitative leadership, we stand in strong support of the courageous actions of Ka Pouhana, CEO of the Office of Hawaiian Affairs, Kamana‘opono Crabbe in his letter to the United States Secretary of State John F. Kerry released on May 9th, 2014.  The questions posed represent the perspectives of the broader Hawaiian and Hawai‘i community and their search for justice regarding the United States supported illegal overthrow of the constitutional Hawaiian Kingdom on Jan 17th, 1893. 

We believe that the four fundamental questions posed in the letter requires a response and should be looked at critically before proceeding with any further “nation building” processes. 

The following people, ohanas and organization stand behind the Office of Hawaiian Affairs CEO’s request for legal guidance to further shed light on the truths of Hawai‘i’s complex political history.
