117th anniversary of the overthrow

This weekend marks the 117th anniversary of the overthrow of the Hawaiian kingdom. I expect Sovereignty Sunday activities in observation of the sad event at Iolani Palace and neighboring areas, but I have details of only one. If you know of anything else, please leave a comment. Click on the link below for the flyer and information about “Onipaa – Aloha Aina, Malama Aina Art & Poetry Exhibit.” Hawaiian studies professor and activist Haunani-Kay Trask is the scheduled keynote speaker at Saturday’s opening event.

Constitution of Ka Lahui Hawaii

The “Constitution of Ka Lahui Hawaii”  may be viewed by clicking on the tab in the menu bar and following instructions to the link. The Constitution was originally published in 1993 on newsprint stock.

It is a long document, and the upload may take a few moments depending on your internet connection speed. It is best viewed with the browser Firefox. See sidebar at right.

Mahalo to the authors of the Constitution and the Ka Lahui citizens who made this publication possible.
