Hawaii was obtained by the US Govt without Hawaiin people voting on it legally. The vote in 1959 was open to all residents of hawaii living there at
least one year, which meant tens of thousands of US servicemen.
The ballot itself did not allow for independance of Hawaii. It was a loaded ballot.
Hawaii should be left to the Hawaiin people, of which there are so few left. In Maui the only areas where native peoples live is Upcountry;
Pukalani, Macawao etc....away from the coastal tourist traps. The heirs and guardians of the islands are forced into smaller and smaller areas each
year...Hawaii was taken by hook and crook, at a time when Manifest Destiny was US foriegn Policy.
If this is the first step to returning Hawaii to the rightfull heirs, then great. how can i support it.
