“Refrain from blame.”
— Donald Kaulia
"I stand on the shoulders of my tūtū kāne, James Kaulia, president of Hui Aloha ʻĀina in 1897 (122 years ago). He was instrumental in the development and implementation of the Anti-Annexation Petition (aka Kū‘e Petition). He fought and did all he could to preserve Hawaiian Sovereignty. He is recognized today as a true Aloha ʻĀina Patriot. Yet, after Annexation, he had the insight and wisdom to encourage the Lāhui to vote as U.S. citizens. He understood the importance of the vote, as a means to give the Lāhui a voice and help them remain relevant in a quickly changing world.
"Today I continue the legacy of my tūtū kāne, to fight for the Lāhui and all of Hawaii, (Hawaiians and non-Hawaiians). I am tired of the corruption, I am tired of politicians putting special interest and development before the People, ʻĀina, and Culture. I am tired of decisions being made without addressing the input and concerns of the People. We deserve better, we demand better. It is time for a government that is truly of the People, by the People, and for the People. It is time to huli politics as usual. I call upon all Kānaka and those who love truth and justice, to stand with us in this quest, as Brothers and Sisters of the Aloha ʻĀina Party, the Peoples Party. We must do this today for our ʻohana and the generations to come.
Until the last Aloha ʻĀina!"
