Sovereign Kingdom of Hawaii

His Majesty King Eric Kanakaole, Konohiki and Edward Kaiwi, Konohiki

“God hath made of one blood all nations of men to dwell on the earth, in unity and blessedness.
God has also bestowed certain rights alike on all men and all chiefs, and all people of all lands."
-- 1840 Hawaiian Constitution Declaration of Rights
"Aloha, from the Sovereign Kingdom of Hawaii. Aloha, in Hawaiian means Love, and this is what was lost with the Illegal Overthrow of the Sovereign Kingdom of Hawaii. The Aloha Spirit for the World is missing and we [Eric Kanakaole, Konohiki and Edward Kaiwi, Konohiki] invite all peoples from all Nations of the World to join us in bringing back the Aloha Spirit to Hawaii and in doing so restoring the Aloha Spirit to the World.
Volumes have been written on the injustices perpetrated on Native Hawaiian people by the United States of America’s 1893 illegal overthrow of the Kingdom of Hawaii. The purpose of this document is not to ‘just reiterate’ these well-known facts, but rather, to help present irrefutable evidence, that by way of lineage and genealogy, the Kingdom of Hawaii is being reclaimed by the rightful, “Heirs At Law”. (see Blacks Law Dictionary)
The restoration of the Sovereign Kingdom of Hawaii is happening now. And, while many Sovereignty groups have attempted to restore the Kingdom to her Sovereignty status they have failed. Through international law only Konohiki’s at the Head of the lineage, established by genealogical records, can legally claim the throne and return Hawaii to its original Constitutional Monarchy.
King Kamehameha III raised the Kingdom into a Constitutional Monarchy and put Crown Lands into Royal Patents, which preserved the Land and the Mineral Rights for the Konohiki’s “for all time under International Law.” Kamehameha III, through Divine Inspiration and foresight did this so that future generations would have the power to restore the Sovereign Kingdom of Hawaii to her rightful place in the center of the Family of Rainbow Nations.
The Great Unification begins with unity of all the separate Sovereignty groups behind the Rightful Heirs to the Throne of the Kingdom of Hawaii. Restitution under International Law is for Hawaii to return to its original Constitutional Monarchy." -- Eric Kanakaole, Konohiki and Edward Kaiwi, Konohiki

"Edward Kaiwi is a man who has always put his higher purpose in life first. His dedication to and his faith in the restoration of the Hawaiian Kingdom have been his driving force. His unwavering belief in the outcome is backed up by over forty years of genealogical research, helping to restore land title claims to families on every island. Ed’s qualities as a natural leader and his wisdom and research over the years has earned him the respect of very diverse groups including the Mormon Church, the Hawaiian Sovereignty movement, the military and his extended ohana.
Ed’s vision and dedication to a sovereign Hawaii has resulted in the formation of an independent sovereign nation. Ed and his trusted cousin Eric Kanakaole are recognized as the family’s representatives through signed affidavits of thousands of his ohana and the title to ten thousand acres from Queen Emma. In the twenty years I have known Ed he has always stayed true to his purpose of restoring the Hawaiian Kingdom through legitimate land titles that were stolen or lost in the hundred years of occupation. He is a gifted visionary, a natural leader and most of all a truly spiritual man." -- by Leslie O’Brien

Kahuna Fourd Mask
Kahuna Fourd Mask of 1778

The term kahuna is a derivative from its root-word kahu, meaning “caretaker.“  The kahuna was a custodian of esoteric knowledge, handed down from his or her forebears;– knowledge to be kept secret in order to preserve its mana.  There were various types of experts (adepts, master-craftsmen, and doctors), who were known by the name kahuna.  Their expertise included: the kahuna nui (the high priest who advised the king on spiritual matters); the kahuna pule (“prayer-priest,” who was able to perform invocations in word-perfect recitations); kahuna kilo hoku (an expert on weather, astronomy and navigation); kahuna ho’oulu ‘ai (an agricultural expert); kahuna kalai (a carving expert); kahuna la’au lapa’au (a medical practitioner, some of whom possessed a vast knowledge on the properties of healing herbs); and kahuna kaula (who was regarded as a prophet). (Kane 1997:37). Unfortunately for the modern researcher, the valued secrets of what a given kahuna knew were considered kapu and (as previously mentioned) not shared outside the family.

The Supreme Law of the Law

“From 1826 until 1893, the United States recognize the independence of the Kingdom of Hawaii, extended full and complete diplomatic recognition to the Hawaiian Government, and entered into treaties and conventions with the Hawaiian monarchs to govern commerce and navigation in 1826, 1842, 1849, 1875, and 1887” -- United States Public Law 103-150, The "Apology Resolution"

During the 1800s, the Sovereign Kingdom of Hawaii was recognized by many nations as a Sovereign and Independent Nation. As a Nation, it signed treaties with over fifteen other Nations, mostly those European countries with a presence in the Pacific, including England in 1836. On December 23, 1826, the United States signed a treaty of friendship, commerce, and navigation with the Kingdom of Hawaii and in 1849 the United States signed and ratified another Friendship Treaty dealing with friendship, commerce, and navigation. The 1849 Friendship Treaty had an initial life of ten years with extensions that allowed either party to extinguish the treaty with one year’s notice. In addition, States and the States and the Kingdom of Hawaii provided for sale of duty-free goods in both directions. The Reciprocity Treaty was renewed and revised to cede exclusive use of Pearl Harbor to the United States in 1887. These treaties were still in effect when the Hawaiian Monarchy was overthrown. The United States clearly viewed the Kingdom of Hawaii as an independent nation as evidenced by the negotiation and signing of several treaties, including those described above.

King Kamehameha III raised the Kingdom into a Constitutional Monarchy and put Crown Lands into Royal Patents, which preserved the Land and the Mineral Rights for the Konohiki’s “for all time under International Law.” Kamehameha III, through Divine Inspiration and foresight did this so that future generations would have the power to restore the Sovereign Kingdom of Hawaii to her rightful place in the center of the Family of Rainbow Nations.

Following is a statement made by John Marshall who served as the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court in Washington DC from February 4, 1801, until his death in 1835. This statement opened the door for all aboriginal peoples to help settle land claims and supports the sovereign rights of indigenous peoples of Hawaii through existing treaties.

"As a litigator before the International Court of Justice, I would be able to take this law to the World Court and say, "The United States government has now officially conceded that it illegally invaded and occupied the Kingdom of Hawai'i, and for this reason the native people of Hawai'i would be entitled to a restoration of their independent status as a sovereign nation state, to go back to what they were (Constitutional Monarchy) before the U.S. invasion, to undo the damage that had been done." Now this is styled as an apology, and one might say: Yes, an apology is certainly here and it's long overdue. But it's also not enough. When a government commits a severe violation of international law, as happened here, they just don't apologize and walk away. Damages are required, reparations, and - in extraordinary circumstances - restitution, that is to return the situation to what it was before the violation. Especially when you have a treaty violation and in the case of the Kingdom of Hawai'i, there were three treaties on point, in law, with the United States government that were violated by means of the invasion. This violated international law at the time, the basic principle - pacta sunt servanda - treaties must be obeyed. It even violated the terms of the United States Constitution at that time. Treaties were the "Supreme law of the land" and the invasion and annexation of Hawai'i in violation of those treaties not only violated international law, but the United States Constitution itself." -- Professor Francis A. Boyle, University of Illinois, College of Law

Supreme Court Visit

In 1991 Hawaiian Chiefs Eric Kanakaole, Konohiki, and Edward Kaiwi, Konohiki took their case to the Supreme Court in Washington D.C. and under the Fifth Amendment they petitioned for a Jury Trial before the Supreme Court and successfully proved by way of Genealogy that they are the Konohiki Chiefs of Hawaii and the rightful heirs to the throne. As Representatives of the Kingdom of Hawaii by bloodline genealogy of the Royal House of Nobles who created the Constitution of the Kingdom of Hawaii in 1857. As representative Heirs Eric Hiwaonalani Kanakaole, Konohiki and Edward Kaiwi, Konohiki are recognized as the family’s legitimate representatives through signed affidavits of thousands of his ohana (family) and the titles to ten thousand acres from their ancestor Queen Emma.

Native Sense

Doctrine of Discovery

The "Doctrine of Discovery", which developed from 15th century papal bulls and the royal charters of European monarchs gave European Christians the right to claim lands 'discovered' by their explorers if no Christians lived on those lands. If the 'pagan' inhabitants converted to Christianity, they might be allowed to live; otherwise they could be killed or enslaved. The doctrine eventually became embedded and institutionalized in law and policy internationally:

". . .it was the manner in which the civilized nations dealt with each other as it pertained to the land, that governed who had title. A European nation that discovered land occupied by aboriginal people assumed certain rights over that land that were recognized by the other European nations. It was these 'recognized’ rights that were passed on to the United States when it won the war of Independence. I will not attempt to go on a further dissertation on the doctrine, except to say that, in it, Marshal found the rationale for asserting federal title power over the land versus state power. As a result, with the adoption of the ‘discover doctrine,” the court held the title to land passed to the plaintiff by the Illinois and Piankeshaw tribes was invalid because Indians held only a title of occupancy, and not full title." -- JOHNSON v. M'INTOSH, 21 U.S (8 Wheat) 543 (1823)

Before the European invasion of North America, Indian tribes exercised their own form of governments as sovereign nations. That power has lessened considerably over time, yet Indian tribes have retained limited sovereignty under federal law. As separate sovereigns, tribes have unique powers with respect to how the reservations are governed. Tribal powers include, but are not limited to, tribal governments that make laws and enforce them through ordinances and law enforcement; tribal courts that exercise limited civil jurisdiction over all reservation residents, criminal jurisdiction over all Indian people; and the power to determine its own membership. Note however, that the United States Supreme Court has been making inroads against inherent tribal power in many of the decisions. Tribes have to, tribal governments that make laws and enforce them through ordinances and law enforcement; tribal courts that exercise limited civil jurisdiction over all reservation residents, criminal jurisdiction over all Indian people; and the power to determine its own membership. Note however, that the United States Supreme Court has been making inroads against inherent tribal power in many of the decisions. Tribes have the right to make and enforce their own environmental laws, so long as they do not conflict with federal law. Under To follow is a statement made by John Marshall who served as the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court in Washington DC from February 4, 1801, until his death in 1835. This statement opened the door for all aboriginal peoples to help settle land claims and supports the sovereign rights of indigenous peoples of Hawaii through existing treaties.

Hawaiian Justice

In some circumstances the tribe can have ones that may be more stringent than a neighboring state or community. As separate sovereigns, tribes have a government to government relationship with the federal government that is recognized in federal laws and court decisions.

Constitutional Monarchy

King Kamehameha the Great originally established the Hawaiian Kingdom Government as an Absolute Monarchy in 1810. In 1840, during Hawaii’s transformation to Christianity, King Kamehameha III, promulgated a Constitution for the Hawaiian Islands. This changed Hawaii’s civil government from an Absolute Monarchy into that of a Constitutional Monarchy. The Constitution also acknowledged “the laws of Jehovah God” (Biblical Law) as the supreme authority to which all the laws of Hawaii are to conform. The Kingdom adopted the English and American Common Law as the format for the Hawaiian judicial system. The Hawaiian National Constitution provides for a Legislative Branch, a Judicial Branch and an Executive Branch with distinct separation of powers and appropriate checks and balances.

The Sovereign Kingdom of Hawaii was once the unnamed United Nations evidenced by the sheer number of Treaties, which are still in effect today. The United States has illegally claimed jumped these treaties through the Pacific Rim Trust and has collected a huge tariff, which funds the International Monetary Fund and the existing United Nations. It is overseen by five major countries.

10,000 acres of land on the Island of Maui, which has been surveyed and documented and won through the courts. A survey of the rest of the land, which Hawaii owns, will reveal that Hawaii owns the Mineral Rights for the whole Pacific Rim. This makes the Sovereign Kingdom of Hawaii the wealthiest mineral rich Nation on the planet. Through these Mineral Rights the Kingdom of Hawaii will form a new Mineral Rights Bank. The Kingdom of Hawaii is a resource rich country, with no debt and so we are proposing that Hawaii become the Switzerland of the Pacific Ring. The “Sovereign Kingdom of Hawaii Bank”, will become the new non-usery international banking center of the world.

The Hawaiian Kingdom is one of the most strategic and remote places on the planet. This ancient map illustrates the many ports that Hawaiians were traveling to in the 1800’s. Consequently, the Kingdom formed treaties with countries from all over the world. The Sovereign United Nations proposes a SUN Center on the Big Island of Hawaii.

Special Acknowledgment

Please thank Konohiki Chief Eric Kanakaole and Chief Ed Kawai for all their years of trials, tribulations and personal sacrifices in their pursuit of justice to correct the injustice’s done to the Citizens of the Kingdom of Hawaiian by the illegal overthrow of the Sovereign Kingdom of Hawaii by the United States of America in 1893.

Ed Kaiwi and Eric Kanakaole
Ed Kaiwi and Eric Kanakaole, 2009

Ed Kaiwi and Eric Kanakaole would like to thank everyone who
participated in making our place in the Sovereign Kingdom of Hawaii a reality.
The history that we have collected about our Royal family ties us
intimately by blood to the whole world.
We would also like to thank Ke Akau for the guidance and help
through this endeavor and the recreation of our life history.
On behalf of Edward and Eric
Much Aloha,
Mahalo Nui Loa

Thank you both for having the courage of your convictions and virtues, for it takes great courage to be that hand of fate for the Native Hawaiians who await fulfillment of the Rainbow Prophecy.

“'In the past 10 years or so, just about every avenue of escape for the United States has been sealed off', says Leon Siu. 'They can’t claim ignorance, since they admitted wrongdoing in the apology resolution. They can’t use the argument that what they did was in our best interest. And they can’t say that it was in the past, and we should just move on. International law doesn’t work like that, there’s no expiration date. Very soon they won’t be able to hide behind the ignorance of the rest of the world. I think it’s quite imminent that this will happen.'” -- Sai Kahau Figueroa

The Sovereign Kingdom of Hawaii by way of lineage and genealogy is being reclaimed by the rightful, “Heirs At Law” and led by Queen Emma's heirs Edward Kaiwi and Eric Kanakaole.
