HO’OPUNIPUNI THE MYTH OF STATEHOOD
Mon., 7:30pm – Nat’l Center for the Preservation of Democracy

waikiki This year marks the 50th anniversary of Hawai’i’s statehood, a landmark event that suggests hula dancing and many a fire-roasted pig. On the contrary, the subject of statehood is a highly controversial one in Hawai’i and has been challenged by many Native Hawaiians. VC is honored to present a forum that explores the deep seeded issues of Hawaiian sovereignty, the “crimes” committed by the United States over the past century. Guest speakers from Hawaii and with divergent political views, will provide discourse with insight and will incite the various Myths of Hawaii and statehood. This event is FREE to the public!

Like all Hawaii gatherings, there will be food and refreshments after the panel!
