A'ole - Native Hawaiians Reject The Akaka Bill (S.344) sign now

BE IT KNOWN TO ALL PERSONS BY THESE PRESENTS:

1.) Whereas, the United States Congress has committed itself to provide a foundation from which to reconcile wrongs committed against Native Hawaiians and the Kingdom of Hawaii (United States Public Law 103-150); and

2.) Whereas, the United States Senate has urged the President of the United States to support reconciliation with Native Hawaiians for the wrongs committed by the United States government against Native Hawaiians and the Kingdom of Hawaii (United States Public Law 103-150); and

3.) Whereas, the wrongs committed by the United States against the Kingdom of Hawaii have resulted in negative health, economic, education, social, housing, and other conditions of Native Hawaiians, a result of the unlawful suppression of their lawful government; and

4.) Whereas, the United States is now considering Federal Recognition of Native Hawaiians in legislation that would authorize negotiations with a Native Hawaiian governing entity; and

5.) Whereas, the State of Hawaii government was unlawfully established in 1959, and the Office of Hawaiian Affairs, an agency of the State of Hawaii government is actively organizing and soliciting participation in the creation of a Native Hawaiian governing entity for the purpose of negotiating on behalf of Native Hawaiians; and

6.) Whereas the United States, by its own admission, has failed to meet its commitments to Federally Recognized Native American Tribes thereby creating a chronic crisis in health, education, and economic conditions of Native American Tribes, worse than faced by Native Hawaiians (United States Commission on Civil Rights Report: Federal Funding and Unmet needs in Indian Country July 2003); and

7.) Whereas the United States Department of the Interior has been found to be an unfit trustee, destroyed trust documents in violation of court orders, been both unwilling and unable to account for millions of acres of land and billions of dollars in assets entrusted to the Interior Department on behalf of Native American beneficiaries (Cobell v Norton; 1996-present); and

8.) Whereas, the United States, by its own admission, has been notoriously unfaithful in observing its commitments to Native American Tribes (American Indian Policy Review Commission Final Report 1977 at p.130); and

9.) Whereas, the United States by its own admission has chronically and consistently under funded or failed to fund commitments made to Native American Tribes (Fiscal Year 2004 Views and Estimates Letter; Indian Affairs Committee U.S. Senate); and

10.) Whereas Native Hawaiians must protect themselves from the conditions suffered by Native American Tribes resulting from the United States habitual failure to honor its commitments to reconciliation for wrongs condoned and/or committed by the United States government; and

11.) Whereas Native Hawaiians have committed no crime or offense against the United States and therefore owe the United States nothing.

THEREFORE, in order to prevent further injury to Native Hawaiians whose ancestors were the loyal citizens of the Ko Hawaii Pae Aina (Kingdom of Hawaii) government during the reign of Liliuokalani, and to prevent further injury to our country, our lands, our inherent rights, our natural and other resources, our well being, and our right to self-determination, we do hereby declare that:

1.) WE DO NOT CONSENT to any governing document, agreement, settlement, or any other instrument or action by the United States and/or Native Hawaiian governing entity whereby Hawaiians claims to our inherent sovereignty as a people over our national lands are relinquished to the United States; and

2.) WE DO NOT CONSENT to any governing document, agreement, instrument, or action by the United States and/or Native Hawaiian governing entity that applies any definition to the citizens of that entity that subjects ourselves, our lands, our resources, or our rights to the doctrine of discovery; and

3.) WE DO NOT CONSENT to any governing document, agreement, instrument, or action by the United States and/or Native Hawaiian governing entity that limits, reduces, damages, risks, or terminates the continuity of Ko Hawaii Pae Aina or its jurisdictions as provided in international law; and

4.) WE DO NOT CONSENT to any governing document, agreement, instrument, or action by the United States and/or Native Hawaiian governing entity that effects or provides for extinguishment of our right or any part of our right to full and unrestricted self-determination; and

5.) WE DO NOT CONSENT to any governing document, agreement, instrument, or action by the United States and/or Native Hawaiian governing entity that effects or provides for any claims settlement or extinguishment without requiring 2/3rds majority approval by vote of the Native Hawaiian population; and

6.) WE DO NOT CONSENT to any governing document, agreement, instrument, or action by the United States and/or Native Hawaiian governing entity that effects or provides for any settlement or extinguishment of Native Hawaiians claims to Ko Hawaii Pae Aina Crown and Government Lands; and

7.) WE DO NOT CONSENT to any governing document, agreement, instrument, or action by the United States or and/or Native Hawaiian governing entity that results in the extinguishment or transfer of any land title to the United States; and

8.) WE DO NOT CONSENT to any governing document, agreement, instrument, or action by the United States and/or Native Hawaiian governing entity that is contrary to the ""Palapala Hoopii Kue Hoohuiaina"" (anti annexation petition of 1897); and

9.) WE DO NOT CONSENT to any governing document, agreement, instrument, or action by the United States and/or Native Hawaiian governing entity that subjects any Native Hawaiian governing entity to oversight and/or control by the United States government; and

10.) WE DO NOT CONSENT to any governing document, agreement, instrument, or action by the United States and/or Native Hawaiian governing entity that subjects our interests to the control of the United States Interior Department and/or any other; and

11.) WE DO NOT CONSENT to any political process between the United States and Native Hawaiians in the absence of international oversight, and
12.) WE DO NOT CONSENT to any governing document, agreement, instrument or action by the United States and/or Native Hawaiian governing entity that acknowledges or portrays validity of United States claims to Hawaii, the validity of State of Hawaii claims to jurisdiction in Hawaii, claims of legitimacy the Republic of Hawaii, or claims of legitimacy of the Newlands Resolution.
