Hawaiian Kingdom – Laws that govern education

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……

~ You can learn something new everyday!



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!

  1. Aloha,

    We just moved to the big island, and we wanted to homeschool our 11yr old daughter. Do you make your own curriculum or do you have one made for you for each child.

    It’s so overwhelming and I have no idea where to start.

    I hope you can lead me in the right direction.


    • Aloha Tisha,

      Welcome to the Big Island. I apologize for not getting back to you sooner. I just saw your comment. Iʻm currently working on curriculum ideas, however, Iʻve pretty much custom made a lot of lessons for my keiki using the multitude of resources already provided.

      Tell me more about yourself and daughter. Have you decided on a method of homeschooling? Are there particular subjects, interests, beliefs that are important to you?

      Please, donʻt lose heart! I know it can be overwhelming, but I believe that with faith and perseverance you will succeed! Also, please feel free to email me anytime at lavamamahomeschooling@gmail.com and I will do my best to get back to you. It may take a while as you can see from my blog, Iʻm a busy Mama, but I will respond. You can also connect with me on my social media platforms: Facebook- Lava Mama homeschooling and Instagram at lavamamahomeschooling

      Aloha & Blessings!
