In The Public Eye
Historic court ruling
"Ceded lands sales on hold" headlining this
morning's paper (3/4/96) brought pure ecstasy to me and my family
and many other Hawaiian makau throughout our Hawai'i nei. To
watch the evening news and see the many happy faces who
represented the Hawaiians and OHA after the court decision
brought tears to my eyes. I could not help but raise my right
fist into the air in triumph.
This is the second time in a month I have made this
un-Hawaiian gesture. The first to our councilmen over Kuapa and
now this. Us makules (73 years old) usually only shut up, watch
TV and namunamu. The gesture I performed after so many years of
frustration is pure haole and not aloha Hawai'i. E kala mai ia'u.
Mahalo nui loa to you all for working for our benefit. To Judge
-Daniel Heely: a place is waiting for you in heaven.
My eye no can see good but I was looking for others in that
historical TV gathering outside the court. Were any Bishop Estate
representatives there? Was Kali Watson and his hui present in
support of this important ruling? How about the other Hawaiian,
groups? Real refreshing yeah, to see OHA representatives speaking
up on TV to support Bishop Estate "no steal my land"
pilikia. I say everybody gotta come together for our Hawaiian
causes. Sometimes, I wish I was younger, I like hold up the signs
