 People of Hawaii should rise against attack on Hawaiian entitlements   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
The Hawaiian people suffer from the long list of social ills of Hawaii as a direct result of being colonized, and having their land, culture and identity taken away.

Outsiders often exploit and misrepresent Hawaiians and their culture to make money or reputations for themselves; that is not my intent.

 Hawaiian Reformed Catholic Church - Hawaii   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Since the initial leading in 1994 to reinstate the Hawaiian Reformed Catholic Church of 1862 for the Hawaiian people and the residents of Hawaii, we have observed a gathering of Old Catholic, Orthodox and Anglican bishops in Hawaii in the formation of a College of Bishops.
The Hawaiian Reformed Catholic Church was established in 1862, the result of written request of King Kamehameha IV (Alexander Liholiho) to Victoria, Queen of England.
The first ideas for a Hawaiian-British Church came into being from Hawaiian Royalty as far back as Kamehameha I. However, this royal desire was not fulfilled until 1862 when Queen Victoria of England granted mission to the Archbishop of Canterbury to establish a Hawaiian-British mission in the Kingdom of Hawaii.
