 Are kanaka maoli indigenous to Hawai'i? Would the status of being indigenous give them special rights?
But kanaka maoli cannot claim that they need land to grow taro as a matter of physical survival, since poi is not their primary food item as it was 200 years ago.
Kanaka maoli might want land to grow taro because it makes them feel closer to the land, helps them relearn an almost-forgotten lifestyle, and gives them a source of food free from dependence on the supermarket; but those reasons are more akin to voluntarily choosing to pursue a hobby.
Kanaka maoli, in their traditional lifestyle, had a very intimate spiritual relationship with the land which was not shared by the Europeans who came here.

 Update on Kanaka Maoli (indigenous Hawaiian) Health by Kekuni Blaisdell - Healthcare / In Motion Magazine
In 1990, the Kanaka Maoli juvenile arrest rate of 159 / 1,000 population was highest and greater than in 1980, 102 / 1,000 (10) In 1994, Kanaka Maoli comprised the largest proportion, 40.9% of prison inmates compared to other ethnicities (25).
Kanaka Maoli continue to test the hypothesis of causal societal factors in their ill health by revitalizing their traditional culture; and resisting further coercive assimilation, cultural conflict, despair and self-destructive foreign lifestyle ways (1, 28).
Kanaka Maoli and non-Kanaka Maoli in Ka Pae'aina restrict unlimited foreign population ingress with resulting social illnesses, such as excessive crowding, crime, substance abuse, automobile dependency and recklessness, consumerism, waste, depletion of natural resources, excessive commercial development, environmental degradation, soaring housing costs and homelessness (1,28).

 Sovereign Stories : Kanaka Lament by Alani Apio
The truly ugly legacy of that act is not that most Kanaka do not have access to the lands, or that monies and lands have been squandered or stolen from Hawaiian Homes, or even that it discriminates against non-Kanaka.
The real atrocity is that it pits us Kanaka against ourselves, creates and perpetuates deep and jagged feelings of resentment, shame and confusion over self-identity (some are defined as "Native Hawaiian" and some are just "Hawaiian"), and as a result has allowed America to avoid blame for the overthrow.
In the case of Kanaka, though, they are more: they are attempts to compensate for colonialism; the overthrow, subjugation and oppression of a sovereign nation.

 Kanaka Village
Kanaka Village which included French Canadians, and half-breeds, was just west of the fort and continued down to the waterfront, historians say, about where Interstate 5 is now.
Kanaka William was sent over in 1844 from Honolulu by George Pelly at the request of Dr. McLoughlin, who had written for a "trusty educated Hawaiian of good character to read the scripture and assemble his people for public worship." He was to get a salary of ten pounds a year.
And as the people whose toil and sacrifice was essential to the fort's existence, the Kanakas are due far more recognition than they have received in the past century and a half.

 The Kanakas and the Cane Fields
It is a story of slavery, of how young men and women from exotic islands such as Pentecost, Tanna and Malaita in the Solomon Islands were taken, sometimes by force and sometimes by deception and shoved into the putrid hulls of ships and carried across to work in the cane fields of Australia and Fiji..
As the kanakas toiled in the fields, they were watched over by overseers often on horseback and armed with stock whips - something intended for cattle and not for human beings.
There is no doubt in the minds of the descendants of the original kanakas that this was most certainly the case.

 New hopes arise for ancestral culture
It is time for all Kanaka to pick up the 'ahu'ula (feathered cloak) of our beloved ali'i and become once again the protectors and stewards for all who live on this pae 'aina.
Kanaka, we need to stop begging, fighting for a piece of the pie and realize that this whole pae'aina, from South Point to Kure Atoll, is ours - not to own, but to malama in the deepest sense of the word.
Kanaka, let us gather as one, as our kupuna of old showed us when building a massive fishpond or heiau, and chart out a course that not only ensures our survival, but ensures the survival of our neighbors and friends as well.

 Healing Practices by Kekuni Blaisdell, M.D.
Historically, traditional kanaka maoli lapa'au (Hawaiian medicine) may be considered in three periods: (1) the pre-Western over 1 500-year era, beginning with the arrival of the first Polynesians from South Oceania who settled in Hawai'i about 100 A.D., until the 1778 chance-arrival of the first European explorers.
Events could, and were, influenced by all of the numerous forces in the material and spiritual realms, favorable and adverse, and from the past as well as the present and into the future.
In 1965 the examining board was abolished because the statute authorizing it and licensure of traditional practitioners were considered "obsolete." Kanaka Maoli herbalists were no longer recognized, while lomilomi practitioners had to be certified by a separate, albeit still legal, Board of Massage.

 Are kanaka maoli indigenous to Hawai'i? - WorksOfConklin   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
Therefore, kanaka maoli did not come forth from the lands of these islands.
But kanaka maoli in Hawai'i today do not recognize ethnic Samoans or Tahitians or other Pacific islanders as having any rights to kanaka maoli sovereignty in Hawai'i.
Even if kanaka maoli tenure in Hawai'i is considered to be the tenure of Polynesians as a whole, that would still be only since about 400, which is shorter than the tenure of the Anglo-Saxon race as a whole in England.

 Were non-kanaka maoli historically full partners in Hawai'i, or only second-class guests?
The activists say that it is time for kanaka maoli to show the court their deed to the house, call in the police, and re-establish their rightful control of the house they have always owned.
The version of this story that is told by modern-day kanaka maoli sovereignty activists is that the two-man diplomatic mission to France, Britain, and the U.S. was headed by the ali'i Timoteo Ha'alilio, who took along the American missionary William Richards as his secretary.
Naturally, kanaka maoli political activists in the 1800s and nowadays would want to downplay the importance of a haole missionary who was a senior advisor to the king, and sarcastically refer to him as merely a secretary to a young kanaka ali'i.

 BC Parks - Kanaka Creek Regional Park, Maple Ridge, Vancouver, British Columbia
This open setting beside the main fork of Kanaka Creek (the two forks merge below Cliff Falls) lacks some of the mystique of Cliff Falls, but none of the calm (except in April, when schoolchildren gather for the annual release of fry from the hatchery).
Kanaka Creek Regional Park is a long corridor of protected land that stretches almost 7 miles (11 km) inland from the Fraser River.
Although the best way to experience the lower section of Kanaka Creek Regional Park is by boat, for an easygoing walking tour, follow Riverfront Trail on foot as it leads out to Kanaka’s confluence with the Fraser from the Hwy 7 trailhead.

As we explore decolonization as Kanaka Maoli, issues like cultural institutions or land use have all brought about deep discussions in our community, all for the sake of the physical, cultural, and mental survival of Kanaka Maoli people.
The Kanaka Maoli cannot afford to limit our attempt to decolonize spiritually, socially, culturally, and economically by failing to address one of the most predominant institutions of American cultural hegemony.

 Resolution on Kanaka Maoli Self-Determination - Kekuni Blaisdell - Global Eyes - In Motion Magazine
Whereas, in 1810 a central monarchical Kanaka Maoli government (Hawaiian Kingdom) was established to protect the Kanaka Maoli and their lands as an independent sovereign nation, and to deal with the world community of other nations, which subsequently officially recognized the Kanaka Maoli nation through treaties and diplomatic representatives.
Whereas, on January 16, 1993, during the centennial of the U.S. armed invasion of Ka Pae'Aina, 15,000 Kanaka Maoli gathered at 'Iolani Palace in Honolulu to call for restoration of the Kanaka Maoli nation.
Whereas, the Kanaka Maoli people presently comprise less than 20% of the total Ka Pae'Aina population of 1.2 million, continue to be evicted from their lands, and have the worst and worsening health.
