Ka Lahui Hawaii’s master plan for Hawaiian sovereignty

A master plan for Hawaiian sovereignty prepared by the Ka Lahui Hawaii Mokuna (elected legislature) in 1994 can now be read on this website. Click on the “Hookupu Master Plan” tab above.

I am proud to say I was present in Keaukaha at that legislative session to witness how brilliantly the citizens crafted the document and how hard they worked. It was awesome to experience collaboration and hear the vision of Native Hawaiians so passionately articulated.

It marked a turning point for Ka Lahui Hawaii, because, as it states on page 1, Ka Lahui Hawaii gifted this plan “for future work in many political and community spheres and to propose a process of consensus building which can meet the needs of the many sovereign groups in Hawaii.” “Hookupu” means “offering.”

Now, 15 years later, here it is again, offered and accessible on the internet. I hope you will take time to read it.
