03. Sovereignty in Hawai’i Today | Indigenous Sovereignty | Sovereign’s Handbook

By Johnny Liberty

Sovereignty is alive and well in the hearts and minds of the Hawai’i(an) people. Here lives a sovereign people — their lands and country taken, their language and culture usurped by foreign invaders. Yet, they are still willing to share “alo’ha” with the foreigners who occupy this nation. 

The Hawai’i(ans) are a peaceful, loving, land and sea-based people who have accepted parts of the modern world and integrated it into their traditions and culture. The winds of change have arrived on these islands once again and a window of opportunity has opened for reclaiming sovereignty for the Hawai’i(an) people.

“In Hawai’i, the time is ripe for all inherent Hawai’i(an) sovereigns to reclaim the sovereignty that is rightfully and lawfully theirs—to regain their lands, property, rights, traditions, ancestry, culture and language.” ~ John David Van Hove, Former Ambassador from the Kingdom of Hawai’i
to the united states of America

Today in the streets of America, people will solemnly speak the word “sovereignty” as if it was the liberty bell itself tolling for the Hawai’i(an) people. Although they may not fully understand its full context and depth, “sovereignty” is better understood on the island of Hawai’i than in North America and the world. 

In truth, “sovereignty” is at the core, the heart and soul of every human being, where the spirit of freedom begins and where it ends.

> ALO’HA – with spirit or breathe.

> HA’OLE – without spirit or breathe.

Every child born in this world is a natural-born sovereign individual with the innate will to be free. That will to freedom and transformation is actively suppressed by Power structures, and we are programmed by the media and schools to give up our freedom and sovereign rights for the illusion of security.

  Even though the newborn child is fully dependent upon the mother and the father for survival and nourishment, a child eventually grows into adult independence with the full sovereign capacity to govern themselves as they come of age.

Each adult must eventually cast off the shackles of our social, religious and educational programming by any external authority that harnesses our desires for their benefit, and limits our visions and dreams.

The political, economic and legal systems must be brought to task and exposed for what they really are – a massive legal fiction of greedy pirates – organized crime on the high seas. Their only true power comes from massive ignorance and the blind consent of the people worldwide.

Sovereignty is the key issue on the planet for all the people today. Sovereignty is being free from any other nation’s control – to have no higher law than God. Sovereignty is not a privilege granted by one nation to another, but a natural right inherent in all the people. 

The United Nations has proclaimed: “All peoples have the right to self-determination; by virtue of that right they freely determine their political status and freely pursue their economic, social and cultural development.”

This does not imply that the authority for such rights is derived from, or that an independent sovereign nation must get recognition from the United Nations (UN). This simply establishes as prima facie evidence that, even the United Nations acknowledges the principles of natural law and the “Law of Nations”.

The Wisdom of a Queen
“I could not turn back the time
for the political change,
but there is still time
 to save our heritage.
You must remember never to cease to act
because you fear you may fail.
The way to lose any earthly kingdom
is to be inflexible,
intolerant, and prejudicial.
Another way is to be too flexible,
tolerant of too many wrongs
and without judgment at all.
It is a razor’s edge.
It is the width of a blade of pili grass.
To gain the kingdom of heaven
is to hear what is not said,
to see what cannot be seen,
and to know the unknowable—
that is Alo’ha.
All things in this world are two;
in heaven there is but One.”
~ Lili’uokalani, 1917
