Hawai’i Land Acknowledgement
We would like to acknowledge that her Queen Lil’uokalani yielded the Hawai’i Kingdom and these territories under duress and protest to the United States to avoid bloodshed of her people. We also recognize that Hawai’i remains an illegally occupied state of America.
This acknowledgement honors the land we stand on and guides the way in which we speak and act. We have the utmost respect for the Kupuna of the past and present and to the indigenous people of Hawai’i.
