Ua Mau Ke Ea O Ka 'Aina I Ka Pono

"The life of the land is perpetuated in sovereignty."


The deposition of the Hawaiian empire included the involvement of President William McKinley, President Benjamin Harrison, and Minister John L. Stevens, hence, bringing strain among the Native Hawaiians and its superiors on January 17, 1893.

Historical Significance

The overthrow of the Hawaiian Kingdom would have not been made possible without the roles played by three U.S. government officials: Minister John L. Stevens, President Benjamin Harrison, and President William McKinley. The monarchy is no more. This matter is vital within history itself because this event impacted many, especially our dear friends, the Native Hawaiians. It is because of the migration of these foreigners and commoners from the U.S. that we hardly see pure kanaka maoli's dwelling in the Hawaiian islands today. The moral of my assignment that is needed to take away is the significance and importance of this historical event that changed our Hawaiian islands forever. Where instead of Ua Mau Ke Ea Oka Aina I Ka Pono meaning "the life of the land is perpetuated in righteousness", it is conserved in sovereignty.

Is Hawaii Legally and Lawfully A State Of The Union?

Negative. Hawaii is not legally and lawfully a state of the Union. Force and threats were used against the monarchs of Hawaii to give up the thrown for full U.S. control. With Queen Liliuokalani being Hawaii's last hope to keep Hawaii independent, it became Hawaii's final battle against the "haoles" that was not successful.
