Will this program be made available on demand? This information is too important to be afforded limited access by the public, perhaps more so by the general public than the native Hawaiian segment. Restoration of the Hawaiian nation through a decolonization process is as important to the whole body politic as it is to the native Hawaiian population. Mahalo a ho’omaika’i to those who worked so hard to produce this program series. Keia ka manawa pono.
Yes, Olelo has an on-demand video archive that includes these programs. There is some delay before a program will appear in the archive, but you can already watch the first two public forums as well as shows from the other Sovereignty Conversation shows. See our Events & Programs page — we include links to the on-demand video. http://www.thesovereigntyconversation.org/events-programs/
Who establishes the nation, be it within the United States, or the independent nation?
If the United States is involved, both the nation within the nation or an independent nation will never come to pass. It will be only talk.
I am a open minded low impact human being. Im interested in personal organic farming and living a simple life that doesn’t impose on anyone. I am interested in sustainable living and particularly small new age home building. Im a cancer survivor and simply want to be healthy. Im from Missouri and I lived in Oregon for many years. In both Missouri and Oregon I have found many issues with the american way of life. Small building codes, legal medical battles over cannabis and the pollution of our lands via GMO crops and industrial lifestyle. It is my mother and I’s dream to live on the big island in a small earthen home, live off the land and spend the rest of my potentially short life enjoying the beauty of nature. I completely understand your culture and the nature of gentrification. Oregonians actually struggle with very similar issues over raising costs and other gentrification issues. Missouri once was a place greatly overlooked by the american government. 911 and homeland security has great changed the small ozark environment which I was raised. My question is that if I lived a respectful life on the big island would the hawaiian nation eventually consider me an alien with the political changes. At what point would this become an immigration issue. Would the older generation of people be considered refugees or aliens. Is the time to come now or never? Living a simple life on the big island is a dream. Oregon would be one if it wasn’t in the united states. Please don’t take gentrification to be a derogatory term. It simply means the us exploitation and militarization.

You asked, “My question is that if I lived a respectful life on the big island would the hawaiian nation eventually consider me an alien with the political changes. At what point would this become an immigration issue. Would the older generation of people be considered refugees or aliens. Is the time to come now or never?”
If your “with the political changes” mean the emergence of our independent Hawaiian nation, I would expect the nation’s treatment of foreigners living in Hawaii would be based on a number of factors, the least of which would be to judge the lifestyle you describe with the expectation that your lifestyle would fit within the culture and nature of Hawaii (somewhat a broad description). I believe other issues would play a factor which have not yet been fully determined, i.e., will there be a treaty or agreements between Hawaii and the nation you are a national of regarding transmigration or border crossings into and out of Hawaii, the population limitations for our Hawaiian Islands, your capability to support yourself and not be dependent on the Hawaiian government or its subsidiaries, your intention of changing your nationality to become a Hawaiian or to remain a U.S. national, etc.
The factors upon which your question can be answered have not yet been resolved among the Hawaiian nationals at this point in time.
