  1. I can not say enough about the works of this great and humble scholar. He will go down in our Hawaiian History as one of the great forensic historians of our time. Mahalo nui loa e Lorenz for being the fine task master that you are. wish I could be there to see you meet this epic challenge. I know you will do well.

  2. Congratulations on your excellent research and insights. Knowing this information that is coming forward through your efforts and the efforts of your colleagues, I find myself wishing to turn my life’s clock back thirty years or more.
    May the very essence of “aloha ‘aina” be with you now and throughout your life.
    E malama pono.

  3. Aloha ia O’e Lorenz, I knew from the time I asked you how your “Pacific Travels” (of recent) were, and you just beamed with that ‘I get ’em Bra’ – You “had ’em” Go get ’em Bra! Maika’ Pomaika’i Lorenz!

  4. Congratulations on this well written work. It is an invaluable tool to help to explain the state of affairs in Hawaii today. Your writings will make it easier to educate my students (who live on the East Coast) about the Kingdom. Good luck to you on April 4th. I will be sending you my best wishes. I look forward to reading your published work.

  5. This brings much hope that we will see our Hawai’i become the Kingdom we could actually live by. I look forward to reading more writings in the future in order to be updated on what is legal and moving forward in that manner.

  6. My mother shared with me that the parallels between the U.S. occupation of Hawai’i and the former Soviet occupation of Lithuania are being studied in terms of peaceful resolution. I look forward to reading your dissertation in full. Mahalo!

  7. Best wishes!! Mahalo for all that you are doing and have yet to bring to light!! Loving all the history❤️✌️
