Our Kupuna As Heroes

The women's and men's branches of the Hui Aloha ʻĀina (Hawaiian Patriotic League) gathered the signatures of our kūpuna to oppose annexation of Hawaii to the U.S.  Their good work stopped the treaty.

Queen Liliʻuokalani directed the aloha ʻaina to sign their names on the Great Petition opposing annexation of Hawaiʻi to the U.S.  The Queen and makaʻainana prevailed!

Queen And Country

Kūʻē Petition Continues is how you can connect to the heroes - those supporters of Queen and country who successfully opposed the annexation of Hawaiʻi to the United States in 1897.

The Kūʻē Petition prevented the Treaty of Annexation from taking place.

The Truth Of History

Why Kūʻē Petition Continues Matters

Full house last night for Keanu Sai's presentation on Unjust War with the United States. Or maybe better to say the United States' unjust war on Hawaii. A lot to take in. Good thing I live streamed so can everyone who could not be present could review it later. Probably everyone will have to review later, lol. Cleveland laid it out and no one paid attention (blame it on indoctrination in the U.S. public school system as it played out in Hawaii). But it's on record. Awesome! Mahalo to Keanu for giving us his time. Mahalo to the folks who flew in from Hawaii island and the 'states' to hear him (trying to figure out if I should say 'continent' or 'America' or some other term without offending the other countries on the American continent, lol, but never 'the mainland'). We were happy to have you. Attentive audience, good questions, lots of onolicious food. Mahalo to everybody who came out and brought refreshments, and all the helpers who regularly set up and break down. This was the 7th presentation. Next one is July 14 with Donovan Preza (still waiting on title of presentation). August 25 is Colette Higgins on Queen Kapiolani's travels. Join us for this free series. Flyers will be posted a couple weeks in advance of each presentation. Mahalo to Steven Robello for leading Hui Aloha Aina o Honolulu in promoting these educational events. Btw, Keanu is standing in front of two poster boards that share HAA's object/mission and Code of Ethics. If these appeal to any of you, you should consider joining the organization.
