“Consultation” – new bait, same trap
The newest proposal from Washington D.C. to set up a “Consultation” platform to discuss relations between U.S. Federal Officials, Native Hawaiians and, possibly, a Native Hawaiian government, is the newest scam to put Hawaiians into the American Indian tribal-nation corral without actually saying so. They are avoiding the tribal nation term since we absolutely trashed that concept over the past 20 years.
“Consultation” sounds good but is just another loaded term like “listening sessions” of the ‘DOI-rule-change’ of 2015… and the TMT “public input” of the past few years. With this scheme, whatever decisions the U.S. make, they can say native Hawaiians were “consulted”, implying that native Hawaiians approved.
The U.S. continues to treat their 125-year-long illegal occupation of the Hawaiian Islands as a domestic, Native Hawaiian-American-Tribal problem, instead of an international dispute between sovereign nations. Any honest effort to settle the dispute requires the U.S. to speak with us on an equal level: sovereign nation to sovereign nation, not “consulting” with a bogus Native Hawaiian-American tribe.
The illegal presence of the United States in the Hawaiian Islands is a gross international violation. It demands an international remedy. The only talks necessary are those to negotiate the peaceful, orderly withdrawal of the United States from the Hawaiian Islands; reparations to repair the damage; and the normalization and resumption of friendly relations.
I say, sure go ahead and hold these “consultations”. They will provide excellent opportunities to vent and scold these American government “listeners.” Weʻve gotten very good at it.
As long as we do not fool ourselves into thinking these “consultations” are legally binding or will make any substantive difference; and as long as we reserve our rights and speak as Hawaiian nationals, not Native (U.S.) Hawaiians; and as long as we address the real elephant in the room, the illegal U.S. presence in the Hawaiian Islands; and as long as we maintain Kapu Aloha... this could be fun!
Ua mau ke ea o ka ʻāina i ka pono. The sovereignty (life) of the land is perpetuated in righteousness.
