Next Ka Lāhui Hawaiʻi meeting on March 6

These are the next scheduled Ka Lāhui Hawaiʻi meetings:

A Citizens Meeting is scheduled for 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., Sunday, March 6, at UH Mānoa Hawaiian Studies Kamakakūokalani Building, Room 202.

• The Political Action Committee (KPAC) meets as needed to review the bills in the Hawaiʻi State Legislature; it lobbies and drafts testimony. All interested Ka Lāhui Hawaiʻi citizens and honorary citizens are welcome to attend.

These activities are the outcomes of the Feb. 6 citizens meeting at which 20 people attended. At that meeting, attended by the three past kiaʻāina—Josiah Black Hoʻohuli, Mlilani Trask, Lehua Kinilau—and several past island and district poʻo and officers, it was pointed out that Ka Lāhui can stand on the platform of its history, its Constitution and Master Plan, and its educational materials. There was a consensus to reconvene the Ka Lāhui Hawaiʻi legislature.

Reminder of deadline to submit comments to US Dept. of Interior; Ka Lahui Hawaii regroups

Here is a reminder that citizens may submit written comments to the US Department of Interior about the proposed rule concerning the “Procedures for Reestablishing a Government-to-Government Relationship With the Native Hawaiian Community.” The comment period ends on August 19, 2014. Please refer to the June 20 Federal Register entry that has easy-to-follow directions at the top of the page. Please read the Federal Register.

At this time, according to the July 22, 2014, notes of a Ka Lāhui Hawaiʻi meeting, “There is no official spokesperson for KLH. All officers in the last election and Mokuna have terms that ended many years ago. Citizens can only speak for themselves and say [they are] affiliated with Ka Lahui.” Please write the correct name “Ka Lāhui Hawaiʻi.”

A group of Ka Lahui Hawaii citizens submitted comments in Keaukaha last month to show that Ka Lahui (the nation) exists with a Constitution and a Master Plan. The testimony was given by Mililani Trask. If you are on Moku Honu (continental US), there is an option to deliver your comments in person in “Indian Country” on selected dates. Please refer to the Federal Register.

Ka Lāhui Hawaiʻi regroups

Ka Lāhui Hawaiʻi met on July 22. The next meeting is scheduled for 6 p.m., August 5, at the University of Hawaii Manoa Kamakakuokalani Center for Hawaiian Studies, classroom 202, in Honolulu.

Citizens are asked to submit their correct name and updated contact information by island by clicking on the Contact tab above and following the guidelines. Mahalo!
