Native Hawaiian Roll: Threats and Scare Tactics

ʻAʻole Kanaʻiolowalu

From Movement for Aloha No ka ʻĀina, September 4, 2014

Kana`iolowalu owes its existence to State legislation (Act 195) which limits the scope and extent of self-determination`Oiwi.

Of the 527,000 Native Hawaiians alive today, less than 30,000 actively signed up for Kana`iolowalu. The rest of the 125,000 that Kana`iolowalu claims to have signed up for the roll were hijacked from other Hawaiian registries without their “free, prior, and informed consent.”

Kana`iolowalu Roll Commissioners are active lobbyists for federal recognition.

Rolls are directly related to Indian law and tribal recognition. By using a roll, Kana`iolowalu is constraining us to a US tribal framework and Indian law without full disclosure.

The Kanaʻiolowalu Roll functions to ‘manufacture consent’ for federal or state recognition.

By agreeing to the process (the roll, the `aha, the creation of organic documents for a ‘governing entity), your participation will be used to assert agreement with the outcome.

Your name on the roll will be used to define the membership of the new Hawaiian governed entity. It will be used to legitimize the “governing entity” as having a constituency whether you agree with the outcome or not.

State recognition empowers those who wish to resolve the "Native Hawaiian problem" by way of a global settlement with the “Native Hawaiian governing entity” over our Hawaiian Kingdom crown and government lands, widely known as “ceded lands”. Your participation can and will be used as evidence of consent to such.

Kana`iolowalu, as established by Act 195 is set up for exclusion and points to the many ‘disenrollment’ battles that plague and divide Native American tribes across the US.

Criteria for the roll include, “Has maintained a significant cultural, social, or civic connection to the Native Hawaiian community”, providing a loophole for those with authority to exclude anyone (like those who make waves) from participation at any point by making a judgment against any particular Kanaka Maoli’s “significant cultural, social, or civic connection to the Native Hawaiian community”.

A native roll will give authority to the state to establish who is Native Hawaiian and limit it exclusively to those who signed up for the roll, as expressed explicitly in Kana`iolowalu’s public notice, printed in Ka Wai Ola stating “Native Hawaiians who choose not to be included on the official roll risk waiving their right and the rights of their children and descendants, to be legally and politically acknowledged as Native Hawaiians.

The threat of exclusion from the state responsibilities to Native Hawaiians is a coercive tactic to get Native Hawaiians to sign up with the roll.

Under international law, you have a right to self-determination. Do not feel as though you are waiving your rights as a Kanaka Maoli or Hawaiian national to self-determination if you do not sign up for this roll.

In fact, not signing up is a strong assertion of your right to self-determination, and your unwillingness to be corralled into a process that in fact has NOTHING to do with self-determination and everything to do with the financial interests of a few and the political interests of our transgressors; the State of Hawai`i and the United States of America.
