Native Hawaiians to Deb Haaland: 'We're not Native Americans'

“Aloha Secretary Haaland... I am Kanaka Maoli, and I’m writing to remind you that the United States of America has been holding the Hawaiian Nation hostage for over a century. So, please don’t explore ways to further the cover-up by paying us off or racializing us into becoming a tribe. We want to exercise our rights through self-determination, not American pre-determination.”

Mauna Kea is a clear voice from the Hawaiian people

"Hawaiians were inspired by Wounded Knee, Alcatraz, the Civil Rights Movement, and decolonization efforts in Africa, the Pacific and the Caribbean. Kahoolawe was the beginning of a sovereignty movement with roots that go back to the overthrow."
