Abstract

Thurston, John Stevens, and W O Smith, the architects of the overthrow of the Kingdom of Hawai`i, have been reincarnated as Harold Rice, Patrick Barrett, and Earl Arakaki. The Kamehameha trustees have disappointed the people who look to them for leadership and passively yielded to the demands of our adversaries, much like the cabinet that abandoned our last queen, Lili`uokalani, in her hour of need. As I write this, America is celebrating its Independence Day ( July 4). Will the Hawaiian people once again be able to celebrate their Independence Day? Or, will history repeat itself and relinquish the Hawaiian Nation to a footnote in history? attack from the conservative opposition and the mainstream media whenever they have attempted to articulate Mäori aspirations for greater control over their lives.

Several days later it was partially reported when the Green's leader signaled a softening of the stance on Mäori sovereignty because "many people find the
