How is a “native hawaiian” student defined? What percentage of “Hawaiian’ blood is required and does that include any Polynesian blood? I wonder about these things.
While many understand the motive and efforts to bring back the Hawaiian Kingdom and steer our children in the direction of “bringing back” ancient and early Hawaii, one must also realize that fantasies of a self governing “Kingdom” are futile and destructive to the future generations of “Hawaiians”. As long as our children feel victimized and are told negative things about the reality of their existence in the United States of America, they will under achieve, have harder lives, and will not assimilate to the point of taking full advantage of the “American Dream” that the tens of thousands, and yes even millions of people around the world would risk death to experience. Maintain the Hawaiian culture through Hula, Aloha, Religion, and valuable customs, but don’t forget to transfer a love and loyalty to the Country that 96% of all Hawaiians voted to become a State of. Do it for your children. They deserve it!
