OHA Board Chair Carmen “Hulu” Lindsey statement on the 130th anniversary of the overthrow of the Hawaiian Kingdom

Today – Jan. 17, 2023 – marks exactly 130 years since our beloved Queen Liliʻuokalani was forcibly removed from her throne, marking the collapse of the monarchy and the overthrow of the Hawaiian Kingdom. The 1993 Apology Bill signed by President Clinton for the United States’ role in the overthrow has meant very little to us. The pain of this injustice committed on a once peaceful and sovereign nation still resonates among the Hawaiian people. We continue to struggle and find ourselves at the bottom of every socio-economic indicator. But the Hawaiian people are a resilient people. We are armed with the lessons of our ancestors and the teachings of our aliʻi. We will build on our foundational strengths of ʻohana, moʻomeheu and ʻāina. We will work together in lōkahi and unity and we will overcome this injustice. We will Hoʻoulu Lāhui Aloha and raise a beloved lāhui. Our Queen would expect nothing less of us.
