Proclamation Decreeing Provisional Laws

On October 10, 2014, the acting Council of Regency has decreed, by Proclamation, provisional laws for the Kingdom that are subject to ratification by the Legislative Assembly, in order to provide the proper legal foundation for the United States administration of Hawaiian Kingdom laws in compliance with the international law of occupation (Article 43, 1907 Hague Convention IV). Since 1898, when the Hawaiian Kingdom was occupied during the Spanish-American War, the United States has violated international law by not administering the laws of the occupied State. This violation has consequently placed the Hawaiian Kingdom today into a state of emergency and a fragile state of economic ruination because currently all laws that are being followed in these islands are not laws at all because they emanate from unlawful legislatures since July 6, 1887, which was the beginning of the insurgency that led to the unlawful landing of U.S. troops on January 16, 1893, and other self-declared legislatures since, to include the provisional government (1893-1894), Republic of Hawai‘i (1894-1900), the Territory of Hawai‘i (1900-1959) and the State of Hawai‘i (1959-present).

PROCLAMATION

WHEREAS, the armed forces of the United States of America on January 17, 1893 aided and abetted a small group of insurgents in seizing the Executive office of the Hawaiian Kingdom government and thereafter participated in the coercion of all government employees and officials in the executive and judicial branches of the government of the Hawaiian Kingdom to sign oaths of allegiance to the insurgency calling themselves the so-called provisional government; and

WHEREAS, United States President Grover Cleveland concluded, through a presidential investigation, that the overthrow of the Hawaiian Kingdom government was unlawful, and that the United States bears the sole responsibility for the overthrow of the government of a friendly State, and provide restitution; and

WHEREAS, executive mediation took place between United States Minister Plenipotentiary Albert Willis and Her Majesty Queen Lili‘uokalani beginning on November 13, 1893, at the United States Legation in the city of Honolulu, and on December 18, 1893 an agreement was reached through exchange of notes committing the United States to reinstate the government, and thereafter the Hawaiian Kingdom to grant amnesty to the insurgents; and

WHEREAS, United States President Cleveland and his successors in office failed to faithfully execute the agreement and allowed the insurgency to gain power through the hiring of American mercenaries in order to seek annexation to the United States of America; and

WHEREAS, during the Spanish-American War, the armed forces of the United States of America unlawfully invaded and occupied the Hawaiian Islands on August 12, 1898, being a neutral State, to wage war against the Spanish colonies of the Philippines and Guam in the Pacific Ocean; and

WHEREAS, since the second occupation, the armed forces of the United States of America have not complied with international law, the international laws of occupation, both customary and by conventions, and international humanitarian law; and

WHEREAS, the armed forces of the United States of America under the guise of civilian authority seized control of the government of the Hawaiian Kingdom calling itself the so-called Republic of Hawai‘i, being the successor to the provisional government, and renamed the same as the government of the Territory of Hawai‘i on April 30, 1900, and then subsequently renamed as the government of the State of Hawai‘i on March 18, 1959; and

WHEREAS, the so-called provisional government, the Republic of Hawai‘i, the Territory of Hawai‘i, and the State of Hawai‘i have no legal basis under Hawaiian Kingdom law or the international laws of occupation; and

WHEREAS, the occupant State has unlawfully seized public and private property for the construction of its government agencies and military installations from the occupied State and its inhabitants, and that restoration and compensation shall be made under jus post liminii; and

WHEREAS, the failure of the armed forces of the United States of America to administer the laws of the Hawaiian Kingdom as it stood prior to the insurrection of July 6, 1887 has placed the Hawaiian Kingdom into a state of emergency that could lead to economic ruination and calamity; and

WHEREAS, war crimes have and continue to be committed as a result of the failure of the armed forces of the United States of America to administer the laws of the Hawaiian Kingdom in accordance with the 1907 Hague Regulations and the 1949 Geneva Convention IV; and

WHEREAS, customary international law recognizes that the rules on belligerent occupation will also apply where a belligerent State, in the course of war, occupies neutral territory, being the territory of the Hawaiian Kingdom; and

WHEREAS, customary international law recognizes that when neutral territory is militarily occupied by a belligerent, the occupant State does not possess a wide range of rights with regard to the occupied State and its inhabitants as it would in occupied enemy territory; and

WHEREAS, the Legislative Assembly is unable to be assembled in accordance with Title 3—Of the Legislative Department, Civil Code of the Hawaiian Islands (Compiled Laws, 1884), in order to elect by ballot a de jure Regent or Council of Regency as a direct result of the prolonged occupation of the Hawaiian Kingdom by the armed forces of the United States of America and the Rules of Land Warfare of the United States; and

WHEREAS, the public safety requires:

NOW, THEREFORE, WE, the acting Council of Regency of the Hawaiian Kingdom, serving in the absence of the Monarch and temporarily exercising the Royal Power of the Kingdom, do hereby acknowledge that acts necessary to peace and good order among the citizenry and residents of the Hawaiian Kingdom, such for example, as acts sanctioning and protecting marriage and the domestic relations, governing the course of descents, regulating the conveyance and transfer of property, real and personal, and providing remedies for injuries to person and estate, and other similar acts, which would be valid if emanating from a lawful government, must be regarded in general as valid when proceeding from an actual, though unlawful government, but acts in furtherance or in support of rebellion or collaborating against the Hawaiian Kingdom, or intended to defeat the just rights of the citizenry and residents under the laws of the Hawaiian Kingdom, and other acts of like nature, must, in general, be regarded as invalid and void;

  1. This is phenomenal!!! I am almost without words!!!It really is that simple!! This provides a simple change of the guards!! AMAZING!!! We are holding the space for the return of power to the rightful governing entity!!! GOD PLEASE BLESS ALL THOSE WHO ARE DOING THIS WORK AND THEIR OHANA!!! In Jesus name AMEN!!

    • Not quite a reply, but, it weighed on me to contribute that, the difficulties you endured to reach such simplicity is honorable. However, with all due respect, to the entities ‘acting’ on behalf of the Kingdom of Hawai’i, I would like to inquire about your credentials to do? Also, does 17 years, suffice the constitutions definition of ‘temporary’ in the proclamation of 1997?

  2. May Ke Akua look upon us and give us the strength and patience to see this through and may he bless and guide the Acting Council of Regency as they put their hand on this proclamation to notify not just the United States of America, but the world of our situation.

    • Absolutely amazing ….may the aumakua’s in us all be blessed with the power and strength to face the challenges ahead and the serenity to be proud of the nation and people who we are…….Na’ea!”!

  3. Wow, I feel like a 30 foot wave has just hit the shore and those of us who didn’t listen to the warnings, and get out of the way, just got hit hard and just may drown in the wake.

    Keanu and Acting Council Officers, will you be doing a press release with the reading of this proclamation? It seems to me that it would carry much more weight than just posting it on this blog where less than 100 active commenters will reply to it. However, I’m sure there are many more just sitting on the fence just being observers.

    So what happens if the United States Pacific Command doesn’t heed your proclamation? Will the next step be the Protecting Powers kicking in?

    Mahalo nui for all you and other Hawaiian Patriots are doing for us!!!

  4. The only thing I can see is that the occupation never ended since 1893. Blount may have lowered the U.S Flag but did not remove the U.S. American treasonous insurgents who once had continued its protection by using U.S. American mercenaries as they have done in Iraq. Thus , my point of view was that we were still under U.S. belligerent occupation and the PGs were a civilian arm of that military occupation. The residents of Hawaii didn’t view it any other than U.S. occupation despite removing the U.S. military temporarily.; the message was clear; the U.S. still had control of the government and the belligerent occupation was ongoing.

    I’m adamant in believing the U.S. established the PGS/ROH and protected it which its belligerent occupation never ceased when Blount removed the U.S. banner; the U.S. presence was very much in display. The US. government was calling the shots from prior to January 16th to today. I know for a fact that the incident was planned and orchestrated by the Executive Branch and a few of the Legislative Branch members of the U.S. government and their military. The Hawaii sugar businessmen were the scapegoats and sacrificial lambs in case the plot failed.

    This scheme of placing the majority of the Hawaiian Kingdom subjects into a U.S. Indian domestic tribe is largely to deflect its international war crimes and de-occupation procedures. We must first acquiesce in compliance to the U.S. agenda where it would appear that we surrendered our nationality and embraced the U.S. authority and control over us. Being U.S. domestic indigenous people will expunge all crimes committed against the Hawaiian Kingdom and extinguish it forever. That, I’m not willing to do; I will die a Hawaiian Kingdom subject regardless of what they try to label me.

  5. Alright Acting HK Gov’t, you just solved the biggest problem for the USPACOM. It was obvious they were in a dilemma since in an occupation they had no way to create legislation in an occupied territory that they could use to keep this place afloat. You just cleared the path that was a mine field they could not enter without stepping on a land mine that would explode with criminal liability. Like how you use the HK provision of Martial Law to strategically allow an acting gov’t to create legislation under necessity without liability and remain in compliance to HK law and legal doctrine. MAHALO

      • I believe that if PAC COM does nothing not only will they be facing war crime charges, but then the (ICRC) International Committee of the Red Cross and the Protected Third Party Power Country (Switzerland ???) will be able to step in along with the (ICC) International Criminal Court and all other appropriate agencies to assist in the De-Occupation and Restoration process.

      • Thomas, you have to look at who has the most to loose if the U.S. does not comply with International Law, Laws of occupation and the Exec. Agreements. Russia will use this politically against the U.S. and ask for sanctions or they can claim that if the U.S. can annex w/out a Treaty then the U.S. has set a precedent and Russia can annex Ukraine in the same way the U.S. did Hawaii. China could also use this same logic to justify annexing islands the U.S. claims as disputed in the China Sea. The International community would have to start a campaign to de-occupy Hawaii since it would be in their best interest not to allow that type of conduct to be a precedent for violating states rights because they themselves maybe faced with annexation by a superior powerful state. Then how could the U.S. defend that type of behavior when they are also guilty of the same. Then there are the economic aspects by the International community that could be used to gain compliance for de-occupation. China, Russia and some other states are already maneuvering replace the U.S. dollar as the world reserve currency and petro-dollar. Non-compliance by the U.S. could accelerate their agenda. SO, you tell me who has the most to LOOSE by not complying???

      • Has this Proclamation been delivered to the Pacific Command, US Secretary of State, US Congress, the UN, the International Criminal Court, et al?
        What if they continue to ignore us?
        Is the US Pacific Command able to get away with ignoring our call for Hawaiian Kingdom law?

  6. I am happy to see this attestation of the council of the Kingdom. As a citizen of the United States I honor this proclamation and expect the US to make arrangements to return the governance of the islands back to the kingdom. Thank you.

  7. “AND, WE do further require every person now holding any office of profit or emolument under the State of Hawai‘i and its Counties, being the Hawaiian government, take and subscribe the oath of allegiance in accordance with An Act to Provide for the Taking of the Oath of Allegiance by Persons in the employ of the Hawaiian Government (1874).”

    Aloha Acting Council Of Regency, I foresee allot of State and County Employees being placed in a position of either providing the oath of allegiance or possibly losing their government jobs. Similar to what happened during the overthrow, but now in reverse.

    For those who will be quitting it will provide allot of new jobs for the Hawaiian Subjects, whom I believe should be giving priority for positions being made available.
    Also, new unions representing Hawaiian Subjects may also need to be created.

    • What concerns me is that the same will still hold the same positions as they held under the “State of Hawaii” They have not upheld the oath’s they took under their present positions (for the “State of Hawaii”) and I do not believe they are loyal to anyone, anyplace, then themselves! No one seemed to hold any of them responsible, who will do it now? We’ll have ones like “Hee” who act as he does not care about anything but falling asleep duriing hearings, some of the delegates in OHA, not caring anything about the people of Hawaii but only lining their pockets! A Governor who cares nothing about the people he represents. I Could go on and on! But this really bothers me! Although, I trust Dr. Sai explicitly and I heard him say to “Dr. Lynette Cruz” while being interviewed by her, that doing it this way was the best way he could think of it being done. In fact, this was used in his “dissertation” I accept it.

      • Aloha Jon,

        I hear you and I have the same concerns about politicians and appointed officials in the state government today.

        My hope is that when the Hawaiian Kingdom regains its rightful authority from the United States and the State of Hawaii and begin to amend the Constitution for the modern times, that they consider harsh penalties with regard to elected officials and appointed positions in the Hawaiian Kingdom Government.

        The American form of government allows government officials to prosper with so called kick backs and personal favor’s, from personal interest groups and big money corporations. The amendments that I feel should be put in place is to insure the integrity of any elected office or appointed position stay clean and honest, should be laws with penalties so severe that individuals would seriously think twice about compromising the integrity of their position.

        Individuals running for elected office usually get involved because they want to make a difference and help their community, not get rich. Politicians today look at public office as a career and forget about the wanting to help their community.

        This would be my hope to eliminate corruption in our Kingdom.

        The first amendment I would like to see, is that only Hawaiian’s (Kanaka Maoli) can own land in Hawaii from the time of passage of this amendment. This would insure Hawaiian Lands Stay in Hawaiian Hands.

        The second amendment would be that No Non Hawaiian’s can hold office hear in Hawaii. They should live in Hawaii for a minimum amount of years before holding office and must be a subject of the Kingdom Of Hawaii. (In this amendment Hawaiian would mean Nationality and not race.)

        The third amendment would be regarding laws and penalties for corrupt elected and appointed officials.

        There should be automatic prison time for anyone convicted of corruption while serving as an elected or appointed official.

        There should also be total confiscation of all assets, property, money and real estate from anyone convicted for corruption while serving as an elected or appointed official. If it is found that a family member or any other acquaintance of a convicted elected or appointed official is guilty of hiding assets for the convicted elected or appointed official, they too will have there assets confiscated by the Kingdom.

        This would be the same for those who try to bribe, sway, coerce or threaten an elected or appointed official.

        The reason for the severe penalties is to eliminate the possibility of someone being convicted after making millions of dollars, serving prison time and coming out and living life on easy street with their ill gotten gains.

        My simple remedy for Lying, Cheating, Greedy and Corrupt Elected or Appointed Officials.

        A Hui Hou

  8. May Ke Akua shine his light of protection on the Hawaiian Kingdom acting government; may Ke Akua shine his light of justice on the illegal occupying US military and those Hawaiians who have and do support the illegal occupying USA; may Ke Akua embrace the Subjects of the Hawaiian Kingdom, both past and present, with his light of righteousness that we may KŪ’Ē and ‘ONIPA’A as one UNIFIED PEOPLE as we continue on this path to sovereignty…

  9. Ano ai ke aloha

    May I have the address and the contact numbers for the Attorney Generals Office and any other Hawaiian Kingdom department for the proper procedures and process that I need as poe kanaka hawaii to start filing my complaints against certain US citizens, agents and agencies that have caused injuries and death and is continuing to cause injuries and commit wilful and malicious criminal acts against me and my ohana, mahalo for all you are doing, we the people of hawaii have gathered bodies of evidence against the american invaders and have been waiting for our governing offices to open the doors to our kanaka so we can begin to record all of our injuries…

    Please forward any information to hvipsvs@live.com or call me @ 808*339*5851 imua

    Mahalo ke Akua

  10. Thank you Jesus,
    For blessing Brother Keanu, & the other attorney’s who have finely gotten everything moving forward.
    Ke akua puu,
    Jokepa Kamai

  11. Aloha
    Mahalo keakua for this blessing… suround us with your white light… as we return to the path of pono… help us change what we must change… help us do what we must do… for the betterment for all concern… amene

  12. Aloha Jon, this was made in preperation for the USPACOM setting up it’s military provisional gov’t. The Governor,legislature and county councils would be dissolved. The state and county workers that don’t swear the oath will be terminated and replaced just like the provisional gov’t did at the time of the over throw.

  13. This is why many of us were saying, it’s simple. De-occupation is the only remedy for the Hawaiian Kingdom to regain control. The idea of nation building is disingenuous when the U.S. is speaking of creating a nation, self-determination, de-colonization, governing entity, (domestic/internal) federal recognition, (internal/domestic) government to government relationship, etc. to deflect its international war crimes and integrate a portion of the Hawaiian Kingdom subjects as its indigenous people under its Congress plenary authority. This false sense of nationhood has confused many people that they have to build a new nation from scratch to fit the U.S. box intended to extinguish the Hawaiian Kingdom and its government forever; this way the U.S. gets away with the war crimes, continuous violations of occupation, ignoring our neutrality status, keeps our treasury, lands, assets and resources, controls Hawaii and continues the Americanization of our Hawaiian subjects. So instead of chasing our tails orchestrated by the U.S.; stop running and stand up for our Hawaiian Kingdom and through the international process, reopen our doors of our true governance and update it for the 21st century which is our kuleana and not that of the U.S. and its racist WASP society. Remember, we were a modern, progressive and wealthy country when the U.S. unlawfully took control of Hawaii and we can once more be again knowing what we face today in the world community which we actively participated in building good relationships.

  14. Awww, here we go! Very good start! Now since the U.S. Government has not answered Professor Chang’s letter, much less Dr. Sai’s letter in August and OHA CEO Dr. Crabbe’s letter in May, its pretty obvious; Hawaii is not part of the United States and is therefore U.S. occupied territory. (What’s awesome is the U.S. Government agreed to that by acquiescence and not to mention TITLE 18 U.S.C. SECTION 4!) Therefore, we can now get that picture out of our head that the U.S. Government can prove Hawaii is legally a part of the United States! They CANNOT!! They had plenty of chances; they didn’t do it, therefore, they agreed that Hawaii is occupied by United States! And now since the U.S. Government showing of proof is out of the picture, I cannot wait for de-occupation to happen! I cannot wait for the Protecting Power(s) as well! (Unless we have one already, but its just classified for good reasons)

    Now so be it, its now up to the U.S. Pacific Military Command here to what they are required to do and I cannot wait for it! I think personally a smudge of military rule can do the people of Hawaii some good. Especially when cleansing the Americanization out of the psyche and institutionalizing “Hawaiiannization.” For example, the military government will not only enforce generally H.K. Law, the Laws of Occupation, the 1907 Hague Regulations, the 1949 IV Geneva Convention, certain International Law Provisions, etc, etc, they also can enact and enforce certain rules, regulations, or provisions, which are granted by them in International Law (ARTICLE 64 1949 IV Geneva Convention, for example) and will be also granted by them in this Proclamation (once ratified) for the safety and peace of the people or the Occupying Power (U.S. military). For instance, they can repel or suspend rights to assembly and/or protest, freedom of movement can also be suspended as well such as enforcing national-wide curfews, etc. Whatever the military government enacts or suspends or repels, they all have to be in regard with the safety and security of the general public, the Occupying Power, and the orderly government of the territory.

    Aloha

  15. Mahalo AHKG for this momentous decree . Surely the time of our Hawaiian Kingdom is at hand. God bless you for your perseverance of bringing justice to the forefront. May God and His wisdom help all of us move forward in unity in hopes to not only bring justice to our Country but to the world as we model hope.

    Me ke aloha pumehana,
    Doreene

  16. How does this impact the up coming elections? , Is everyone who is running for a position commiting a felony, by participating in a self proclaimed government not a military government, within the Hawaiian Kingdom?
    Have they been notified?

  17. Aloha Tim, presenting them with the facts of the occupation is key to holding someone accountable for war crimes. Ignorance of the facts does not extinguish their liability but may lessen the punishment.

  18. Aloha Tim, as Prof. W. Chang explained it in his press release, according to the Title 18 USC statute, if an individual has facts that a crime is about to be committed or has been committed then you have a duty to report. I would imagine this would also apply to a Hawaiian, especially if you are or will be a victim. Since the U.S. Attorney Genereal acquiesed and has no jurisdiction in Hawaii then you report it to USPACOM JAG. I believe it should also be reported to the ICC since the USPACOM has proven at this time they are not actively investigating nor prosecuting the war crimes that have already been reported to them. The ICC which investigates and prosecutes war crimes on the behalf of individuals can only take action as the last resort. That is why they have begun to take action regarding the unfair trials. Wouldn’t you think the USPACOM would take control of the situation instead of having the ICC one day knocking on their door?

  19. ‘Olelo Hawai’i should now be mandatory in the public schools. This should prepare everyone for the transition. Many decade ago, while in Japan, the signs at the airport, transportation and brochures in their hotels were printed with several languages; (Just a thought). Our mainstream society is Polynesian Hawaiian and not the racist WASP mainstream U.S. society. The Hawaiian Kingdom was known to be one of the most progressive and modern society. Many Hawaiian subjects spoke 3 or more different languages. I had a cousin and a good friend that could communicate in 7 languages; both fluent in Hawaiian. It will be helpful and an advantage in the international scene.

  20. Aloha my fellow kanaka. O Lonokapu ko’u inoa, ku’u home o Papaikou , Moku o Keawe This is my first time replying but let me say this is awesome news. I’ve been trying to educate myself from all the information available on these web sites and its been very educational. What I have learned in the past 5 months about Hawaii’s true history is more than what I have known my entire life. I am 53 this year. I do have a question if someone can help…I’m wondering how can I be more involved in this movement or maybe I should ask first any suggestions of venues of education on the subject so then I can be of use in helping this transition process some how?.? Just a thought though, I am hungry to learn, eager and antsy at times because I can now see that there is a way to untangle this mess and finally have things become pono once again. I’d also like to express my sincere gratitude to Dr. Sai and the others, for the mana’o and the leadership to bringing us to where we are so far. Mahalo nui loa. For now I will continue learning from the info provided here but if any one can point me to meetings, groups, whatever I’d be most grateful. Once again mahalo. Malama pono. A hui hou. Aloha.

  21. With the dollars value falling and other country’s dumping it do we really want it to be legal tender here? America is the bully of the world and the world is getting sick of it. Brazil Russia India China South africa BRICS bank its on YouTube go watch it by the way Switzerland is in a monetary trade agreement with China so that’s somthing to think about to.

  22. Question:
    If the last lawful Constitution of the Hawaiian Kingdom is the 1864 Constitution, how would Nobles be appointed in order to restore our government?

    Looking for input on a potential problem, regarding restoration of the Hawaiian Kingdom Government. I say “potential” because I may be wrong. There might not be a problem.

    The potential problem lies in “legislative assembly”, defined under article 45.

    The ” legislative assembly ” requires the Nobles, who are appointed by the King under Article 57.

    Article 22, discusses the process of the “legislative assembly” electing, by ballot, an ali’i of the kingdom to become the new Monarch/King/Queen.

    Without a King/queen, no one can appoint Nobles. If there are no Nobles, then there can be no “legislative assembly” to elect a Monarch.

  23. Aloha Tim, I guess instead of the House of nobles, the first order of business would be to put together a de jure house of Representatives in order to address that issue…. The Representatives are an elected body and possess the majority in the Legislative Assembly, and therefore the foundation of our system of democratic government.
    Not to worry, there is a remedy.

    • That is my question, Kekoa. What is the remedy?

      The House of Representatives is not a problem, as you stated. However, they are only half of the “legislative assembly” that will elect the Monarch.

      How do we get the other half of the “legislative assembly”, the Nobles?

      That is the prerogative of the Monarch. We don’t have a Monarch.

      Thank you for replying.

        WHEREAS, the public safety requires:

        NOW, THEREFORE, WE, the acting Council of Regency of the Hawaiian Kingdom, serving in the absence of the Monarch and temporarily exercising the Royal Power of the Kingdom, do hereby acknowledge that acts necessary to peace and good order among the citizenry and residents of the Hawaiian Kingdom, such for example, as acts sanctioning and protecting marriage and the domestic relations, governing the course of descents, regulating the conveyance and transfer of property, real and personal, and providing remedies for injuries to person and estate, and other similar acts, which would be valid if emanating from a lawful government, must be regarded in general as valid when proceeding from an actual, though unlawful government, but acts in furtherance or in support of rebellion or collaborating against the Hawaiian Kingdom, or intended to defeat the just rights of the citizenry and residents under the laws of the Hawaiian Kingdom, and other acts of like nature, must, in general, be regarded as invalid and void;

          This is what I was suspecting.

          So if a majority of the descendants of the Hawaiian subjects, voted and elected representatives then the Acting Hawaiian Kingdom Government could appoint Nobles?

          This would create the “legislative assembly” needed to elect a Monarch.

          I understand this is not the process outlined in Dr.Sai’s Dissertation.

          Could it create a political lawful political voice for Hawaiians?

          Would the Acting Hawaiian Kingdom Government be willing to participate?

          Hmmmm

          • If de-occupation began in accordance with International law.

            Would it be the military government that would appoint the Nobles?

          • Aloha Tim, the AHKG could facilitate elections for Representatives of an HK legislature. That election would be monitored by an international entity to make sure it was done properly. That newly elected legislature would have to first confirm the AHKG council of regency before it could move forward. IMHO
