About LHG

Alo­ha, and wel­come to the web­site of the Law­ful Hawai­ian Gov­ern­ment. Our gov­ern­ment, inspired by the exam­ple of our ances­tors, moti­vat­ed by the cause of truth and jus­tice, is active­ly engaged in the process of reclaim­ing the right to be rec­og­nized as the law­ful gov­ern­ment of Hawai’i, there­by restor­ing the inher­ent human right of self-deter­mi­na­tion to the cit­i­zens of Hawai’i. This process of rein­stat­ing the for­mer inher­ent sov­er­eign­ty is in fact a move­ment of lib­er­a­tion from the most pow­er­ful nation in the his­to­ry of our plan­et. Despite the odds, we resolve to hon­or our ances­tors, to embrace our respon­si­bil­i­ties as kana­ka maoli, as cit­i­zens of Hawai’i, as par­ents and guardians of our island nation. Our method is found­ed on fun­da­men­tal prin­ci­ples of non-vio­lence, inter­na­tion­al law and the oblig­a­tion set forth in the Unit­ed States Pub­lic Law 103 – 150.

Brief history

Hawai’i was a rec­og­nized inde­pen­dent nation pri­or to Jan­u­ary 17, 1893. On that day, the nation and gov­ern­ment was ille­gal­ly over­thrown by the Unit­ed States. Since ille­gal gov­ern­ments have assumed con­trol over Hawaii under the direct guid­ance of the Unit­ed States gov­ern­ment. But, on March 13, 1999 the kana­ka maoli peo­ple (Hawai­ians) rein­stat­ed a gov­ern­ment pro tem­pore and con­tin­ue to imple­ment steps in accor­dance to inter­na­tion­al law and the rein­stat­ed laws of the Hawai­ian gov­ern­ment to reclaim their sov­er­eign inde­pen­dent sta­tus.


Recla­ma­tion of the Island of Kahoolawe: On July 31, 2006, the rein­stat­ed Hawai­ian Gov­ern­ment autho­rized the recla­ma­tion of the lands that belong to the for­mer inher­ent sov­er­eign­ty —the Hawai­ian gov­ern­ment. This action was tak­en through the prop­er autho­riza­tion issued by the Rein­stat­ed Hawai­ian Gov­ern­ment. The Rein­stat­ed Hawai­ian Gov­ern­ment con­tin­ues to appear in the Maui Dis­trict Court, in Wailuku.

Kanaka Bill

The alter­na­tive to the “Aka­ka Bill”. The essence of the Kana­ka Bill is to pave the way to grant all Kana­ka Maoli the right to par­tic­i­pate in the upcom­ing 2007 elec­tions.
