KINGDOM COMING T
The Kingdom is alive, and we are living proof.
This shirt represents the new ahupua’a management by maka’ainana throughout Ko Hawaii Pae ‘Aina.
The Kingdom of the Hawaiian Islands officially launches its 2020 reinstatement campaign, drawing on evidenced history of a US armed invasion in 1893, blatant robbery of our independent sovereign nation and 126 years of a lawless occupation by the de facto State of Hawaii. Based on the current disparity posed to our Hawaiian people in their own Country, and the continued antics of corporations who continue to capitalize and desecrate the natural resources of Hawaii, we ask for your support by means of full force, direct Aloha ‘Āina action.
Through Ahupua’a Restoration projects on every island we will be reinstating the values of dignity, honor and respect for Hawai’i and above all else, love for our people and love for our country. We ask you to join us in putting this spirit of Aloha ‘Āina above self at the forefront and to stand up against the forces of greed and corruption.

We’re organizing descendants back to our valleys, this is vital to the healing of our ‘aina & the restoration quest for recognition and sovereignty.
A campaign created to support the Hawaiian Kingdom.
The 1846-1848 Mahele (division) transformed the lands of Hawai‘i from a shared value into private property, but left many issues unresolved. Kauikeaouli (Kamehameha III) agreed to the Mahele, which divided all land among the mô‘î (king), the ali‘i (chiefs), and the maka‘âînana (commoners), in the hopes of keeping the lands in Hawaiian hands even if a foreign power claimed sovereignty over the Islands. The king’s share was further divided into Government and Crown Lands, the latter managed personally by the ruler until a court decision in 1864 and a statute passed in 1865 declared that they could no longer be bought or sold by the mô‘î and should be maintained intact for future monarchs. After the illegal overthrow of the monarchy in 1893, Government and Crown Lands were joined together, and after annexation in 1898 they were managed as a public trust by the United States. At statehood in 1959, all but 373,720 acres of Government and Crown Lands were transferred to the State of Hawai‘i. The legal status of Crown Lands remains controversial and misunderstood to this day. Government Lands were created to provide for the needs of the general population; Crown Lands were part of the personal domain of Kamehameha III and evolved into a resource designed to support the mô‘î, who in turn supported the Native Hawaiian people. It is the kuleana of our generation to correct the mis-management of our Crown Lands. Organizing descendants back to our valleys, this is vital to the healing of our ‘aina & the restoration quest for recognition and sovereignty.
