Hawaiian Sovereignty 101: The Growing Fight for Native Independence
In 1993, President Bill Clinton signed Public Law 103-150 – an apology to the Hawaiian people for overthrowing their government and stealing their land 100 years earlier. The apology acknowledges the illegality of the U.S. government’s military-backed regime change of ”the sovereign Hawaii nation” in 1893 and its support for the illegally created ”provisional government” in violation of treaties and international law. There’s been a Native Hawaiian sovereignty movement ever since.
