University of Hawai'i Press

This chapter presents speeches by Haunani-Kay Trask and Mililani Trask, delivered at the ‘Iolani Palace on January 17, 1993. The speakers engage in a public rhetoric against the authority of the state government to enforce the forced relation of the Hawaiian people to the state. Haunani-Kay Trask explains what sovereignty is and accuses America of taking the sovereignty of the indigenous people of Hawai‘i, calling the Americans their enemies. She says the only way to fight the United States is to be political. For her part, Mililani Trask discusses the platform of Ka Lāhui Hawai‘i regarding the four arenas of sovereignty, along with a counterproposal that is currently being moved by the Democratic Party, state agents, and certain private individuals to stop the resurrection of the sovereign nation.

Keywords:   sovereignty, Haunani-Kay Trask, Mililani Trask, America, indigenous people, Hawai‘i, Ka Lāhui Hawai‘i, Democratic Party, speeches
