MALAMA MANA’E – Keep Molokai Molokai

Submit testimony to the Molokai Planning Commission HERE.

Hawaiian long time residents of Mana’e (East Molokai) are PROTESTING proposed Short-Term Rental Home (STRH) permit applications for the following REASONS:

  1. Mana’e (East Molokai) is rural area with only a two lane road where long-time residents still practice traditional Hawaiian subsistence and traditional lifestyles. This unique way of life and sense of Hawaiian place is being threatened by the inundation of Short Term Rental Home permits.
  1. There are very few STRH’s in the permit application process or in operation that lists an owner with a Hawaii residency. Because the current zoning code affords owners the option of utilizing their properties as “income vacation rentals” there is no desire by the owners to be a part of our community.

In 1993, the U.S., through Public Law 103-150 acknowledged that the Hawaiian people never gave up their rights to their national lands(aka “ceded lands”) to the U.S. government.

Now, the U.S. Department of Interior (DOI) proposed rule would unethically terminate Native Hawaiian rights to millions of acres of HAWAIIAN ‘ĀINA.

The U.S. Department of Interior (DOI) is proposing to re-establish a formal government-to-government relationship with the Native Hawaiian community that will not affect the title, jurisdiction, or status of Federal lands and property in Hawaii. In effect, the U.S. would continue to control nearly 900,000 acres of land in the main Hawaiian Islands and over 88 million acres of the Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument.  The absence of any reference to Hawaiian lands controlled by the State of Hawai`i in the proposed rule is of grave concern.  With this much at stake, we must submit testimony in opposition to the DOI’s proposed rule before December 30.

  1. Press Release- FREEDOM RIDE 2016- Island of Hawaii

    January 2,1016 will be the first organized Freedom Ride, to demonstrate our inherent rights by traveling in our automobiles as a group, without license plates, registration, insurance, safety checks, etc…….LAWFULLY…because it’s our right, protected by the constitution, the document that ALL public servants swore an oath to protect and obey. This event, the first of the monthly (first Saturdays of every month) will start the re-education process for all people who currently suffer due to lack of knowledge. All public servants will be notified to give respect and protection to all those participating in this Freedom Ride and our ‘right to travel’. This is not a test. This is the law. Many supporting Supreme Court Decisions are available. Search for “Right to travel”:

    “Further, the right to travel by private conveyance for private purposes upon the common way
    cannot be infringed. No license or permission is required for travel when such travel is not for
    the purpose of (commercial) profit or gain….Further, the State is FORBIDDEN by law from
    converting a basic right into a privilege and requiring a license and or fee charged for the
    exercise of a basic right” Court decision, Murdoc vs. Pennsylvania, 319 U.S. 105

    Are you DRIVING a MOTOR VEHICLE commercially (paid to drive) or are you TRAVELING in your CAR as a matter of right? Your automobile/car is your PRIVATE Property
    Your basic ‘right to travel’ is a fundamental right, not regulated nor restricted unless you cause damage/harm/injury/loss

    Q&A, registration, orientation at University of Hilo, Dec. 19, 2015, 10am, Rm #115. Call Paul 936-5929 for more details. If unable to participate in the ride at this time, people are encouraged to film/document/livestream this historic event.



  2. Title is a feudal term. There are no lawful titles because you cannot trace back to the original owner. To be valid you’d have to have the creator’s signature.

    There is a maxim of law that states, “You cannot grant what you do not own.” Ask yourself who the first owner was.

    Be careful when trying to describe land. It is very hard to avoid the feudal terms.
