What is Kūʻē Petition Continues?
The Kūʻē Petition Continues is the brainchild of Clare Apana and Joyclynn Costa, members of the Maui Hui. At its core is our copywrighted alphabetical database. With this database you can locate kūpuna amoung the 17,000 signatures attained through the efforts of The Hawaiian Patrioitic League's Hui Aloha ʻĀina For Women and the Hui Aloha ʻĀina For Men. We travel to various locales taking with us the information about the petition, the petition itself, and the history behind it to all parts of Hawaiʻi and the U.S. in order to raise awareness. Kūʻē Petition Continues encourages descendants of those who signed the petition to reconnect to their ancestors and to stand in solidarity with them by adding their signatures to that of their kūpuna. In addition, allies as sympathizers and/or supporters who have no genealogical ties are also encouraged to sign.
