Hawaii Statehood Day 2022 Messages
Before Hawaii became a state, the issue was debated for decades.
Congress actually considered several bills on the matter before 1959.
The earliest came in 1919 from Prince Jonah Kuhio Kalanianaole, the non-voting delegate sent to the U.S. Congress by the then-Territory of Hawaii.
Forty years later, in March 1959, Congress approved the Hawaii Admission Act.
That was followed by a referendum in which 94% of Hawaii voters showed support for statehood. The question posed to voters: “Shall Hawaii immediately is admitted into the Union as a state?”
The controversy over statehood didn’t end with admission, though. And discussions of statehood have long been overshadowed by grievances over the overthrow of the Hawaiian monarchy.
On Friday morning, a small group of sovereignty activists gathered at Iolani Palace for what they called “another year of non-celebration.”
The activists said the process of Hawaii’s statehood was accomplished by “cheating, lying, ignorance.”
And they are calling on the United Nations to review the facts that led up to Hawaii’s admission into the United States, and say the 1959 referendum wasn’t lawful.
Activist and former OHA Trustee Poka Laenu said the referendum ballot only gave two choices: “Yes” to become a state or “no” to remaining a territory. There was no third choice to become independent.
The sovereignty activist also claims the vote shouldn’t have included all residents, but only the “descendants of subjects of the Hawaiian Nation.”
