Hae Hawai’i Flagpole in Hāna school

$1,640 of $8,000 goal

Raised by 15 people in 2 months
We are raising money to construct a second flag pole in Hāna high school & elementary as well as spread awareness to the reality of our occupation. Last week my brother was suspend from school for switching the Hawaiian flag and putting above the American flag. This was his protest on the same day of the school walk out because of gun violence. Our ʻōpio are Waking up to their history. In 1893 the annexation of Hawai’i failed after the signing of 40,000 + siginitures  by the Hawaiian people that apposed the annexation of Hawai’i to the United States of America. Let’s support them in making their voices heard. We no longer will accept the daily sight of historical injustice. We want 2 flag poles so the Hae Hawai’i will no longer be flown below the American flag. Our patriotism does not invalidate your own. We love our country even though it lives in a occupied and oppressed state. Aloha and mahalo for your support.

Aloha everyone mahalo for all
The patients no update in the past few weeks I will be contacting senator English soon to see if we’ve been awarded the funding just yet. I’ll keep you guys update with the progress. From what I understand both the Hae Hawai’i and the American Hae have not been raised since our community took a stand. We are expecting the second flag pole to be erected in the next couple months.

Mahalo,

Aloha mai kakou,

We’ve got an update from the state. They approved our project and are adding 20k additional funds to our project! It passed the house and is on its way to be signed by the governor. We currently have a willing contruction company that want to kako’o our project. We expect this to be underway in the next 2 months.

Apart of our effort in restoring the Hae Hawai’i to her own flag pole is educating our opio. we want to purchase books for them to learn their true history also being able to get a diploma in olelo Hawai’i. We also wanted to create a plaque to commemorate this moment when a community came together to right a historical wrong. This is what we wanted to use the funds we raised via the go fund me platform.

We want your input on how you would like to to see the funds spent.

After all this is a hui effort and you all made this possible.

Mahalo,

Benji
