Aloha to the US: Is Hawai’i an occupied nation?

Living His Word

This Jan. 31, 2014, file photo, shows a statue of Hawaiian King Kamehameha I with snow-capped Mauna Kea in the distance, in Hilo, Hawaii. An upcoming election has highlighted the deep disagreement between native Hawaiians over what the future should look like. For some, it’s formal recognition of their community and a changed relationship within the US. Others want to leave the US entirely – or more accurately, want the US to leave Hawai’i.

When US officials came onto the stage that June night, they must have known they would be hearing from a hostile audience.

Speaker after speaker came up to the microphone, decrying a rigged process and an occupying government with no legitimacy.

“We do not need you here. This is our country.”

“Get out of our house! Go home.”
