Ending the Occupation

5 Phases for Ending Prolonged Occupations:

1. Consolidation of Issues

  • Occupation Identified
  • Dissidents/ Activists Seek Disclosure of “Occupation”
  • Freely Speak of “Occupation”
  • Consolidation of Issues

2. Creation of Mass Political Groups

  • Widespread Academic Acceptance of “Occupation”
  • Involvement of Political Groups and Public Organizations
  • Opposition Movement
  • Mass Rallies, Concerts and Calendar Demonstrations
  • Traditional Emblems

3. Infiltration of Political System

  • Infiltration of the Occupant’s Political System
  • Denunciation of Historical Documents and Activities
  • Independence Platform Popularized

4. Registration of Electorate

  • Identification of Legitimate Electorate
  • Registration of Electorate
  • Public Acceptance of “Occupation”

5. Election of “New” Parliament (with some old laws)

  • Election of “New” Parliament from Electorate
  • Restoration of Country Name
  • Declare Restored Independence
  • Aspects of Pre-Occupation Constitution Restored


  1. Mahalo for your work and passion for independence. Your concise outline is the antidote to occupation and a blueprint for overthrow.

    • Aloha Ken,

      Since Hawai’i never merged with this US, this would not be an overthrow. This is just Hawaiian Kingdom nationals asserting their rights under international law.

  2. Aloha Kuhio, After reading the blog of the points that you are asserting, I have a question: The 3 states you speak of were occupied for 50 years, Hawaii for 200 years. Obviously, much has transpired in those 200 years, and generations of Hawaiians (Subjects) have been “convinced” that they are Americans and that domestic law prevails/have authority. Hawaiian land issues, health issues, benefits, etc. continue to be challenged and often lost to American domestic law. So, my question is, “Does this 200 year longevity impact on the strategy for deoccupation?” I am curious about your thoughts on this isssue. Mahalo, KG

    • Aloha Ku’umeaaloha,

      That’s a great question! Yes, the duration of the occupation makes a difference, primarily because Hawaiian nationals have been part of the American system for generations. In the Baltic States, some people lived through the whole occupation. But that’s impossible here. We have reenactments and other means of connecting with our past. The duration of the occupation, as with the demographics, could affect the will of Hawaiian nationals to participate in the process and could extend the process for ending the occupation. These are all factors. Yet, at some point, it will be clear to most people here that Hawai‘i is occupied. At that moment, land titles and other contracts will be questioned. And Hawaiian nationals will need to make tough decisions. I still believe that this saturation point will occur within the next 5-10 years. Mahalo for reading the blog and for the question. Kūhiō

    • worth noting though that as of now Hawaii has been occupied for 102 years, starting with the purported annexation, not 200 years. Not sure where that number came from. Still twice as long as the Baltic states and longer than any one person’s lifetime, but half as long as the period Ku’umeaaloha suggested.
