Does the Hawaiian Kingdom still exist? What are the laws?
Yes, the Hawaiian Kingdom is still in existance. There are laws as well as a Constitution and Civil Code. Please follow the link at the bottom to learn more about the Hawaiian Kingdom.
How do I not know about this?
It’s okay, you’re not alone. Majority of people even those of Kanaka Maoli (Native Hawaiian) ancestry still don’t know the truth about the Hawaiian Kingdom. But, now that the cat’s out of the bag I strongly encourage you to find out as much as you can.
I actually stumbled across this interesting fact while cruisin on my FB Homeschooling page. A woman was asking a question regarding reporting to the State of Hawaii-Dept. of Education in order to homeschool her child. I decided to chime in and lend a hand. Other people had also decided to do the same. Much to my surprise it was I who got schooled that day…yes, pun intended. A member of the group shared a link to information regarding the Hawaiian Kingdom laws and Civil code with the group.
So, off I went to the link that was provided to read and learn all the details for myself. I wanted, no I needed to know more. The question I kept asking myself, was “How do I not know about this? I’m Kanaka Maoli, so are my husband and keiki, my questions had to be answered.
Like I said earlier, you are not alone. I was there too.
This brings to mind a saying my mom would say to me……

So, What do I have to do? Who do I report to?
In all honesty, the choice is yours. You can use the information found in the link below or not. I’m not gonna tell you which is better or “lawful/unlawful”. I’m not an Attorney so don’t take my word for it. I just want to encourage you to make the best decision for you and your Ohana. That’s the best I can do. I hope you found this information useful. Thanks for reading my blog!
