Native Peoples in Hawaii are growing tired with the status quo
Honolulu, HI 96790, 08-22-2019 Thursday:  As a native born local girl here in Hawaii, I understand the ‘Green’ or environmental movement because living in the Islands is all about sustaining the environment so that future generations of Local folks will have a sustainable place to live.  We do our best in recycling, we work hard at keeping the land- and the oceans surrounding us- clean, just as we do our best to protect and care for the native fauna and flora.    
Yet, somewhere along the way, we have found ourselves overrun with haoles who have come to live here, increasing the population more than we Local people believe is good or best for those of us who have long called the Islands home.   
The sugar cane is vanishing as are the pine fields, houses and condos are sprouting up in their place.  Back in small kid time, we never thought we would see our way of life threatened but what with all the Mainland transplants- as well as ‘immigrants’ from across the Pacific, around the rim, and from other parts of the world, we are witnessing the vanishing of a once haloed and protected life.  It is not right yet it seems there is not much we can do about stopping it. 
Many Local People want a moratorium placed on nonstop growth.  We continue voicing our concerns but it appears those in charge are not hearing us.  Let me cherry-pick some facts from a blog post written by my friend and colleague over on Mau’i, Lilah Paulikovich.  Here are two key points she made back in May 2018:
Here’s the first:
“There is a great site online I would love to recommend to you: “Troubles in Hawaii” (see the references farther down this page).  The first problem is, since 1900, the population in the state has been on an upswing that never ends.  Now, we have more than 1.5 million people spread across the state with a population density of 1,468 people per square mile whereas a decade or so ago, it was 214 people per square mile.”  (Paulikovich, 24-May-2018)
Population is the major problem here in the Islands, especially with all the accompanying factors that come with it.  We see loss of habitat for numerous species struggling to survive in, on, and around the islands.  We see loss of wildlands and we see more and more litter, more homeless, and more crime and decadence that comes with uncontrolled movement to not only Oah’u, but Mau’i, Lana’i, Kaua’i, even Moloka’i and even the Big Island of Hawai’i.  What was once sleepy Hilo and Kona now are growing at a rapid pace.  Not good.
Here is the second point Chef Lilah made in the same post:
“I believe before we allow more people to come here and settle, before we allow greater growth to further diminish the Islands bequeathed to us by our ancestors, and before we strip our dwindling resources to the point where energy costs, food costs, property costs, and car prices continue going up to the point where we will have but two classes—the wealthy and the poor—we put a moratorium on growth.” (Paulikovich, 24-May-2018)
Most politicians in Hawaii are more concerned with national politics than they are addressing the concerns of we Locals who elect them and send them to Washington, D.C.  Only true Local defenders of Hawaii and the lifestyles of its inhabitants such as Walter Ritte have our issues at heart but the big politicians far away do their best to quash any protests he makes such as stopping the building of the massive new telescope atop Mauna Kea. 
Although I am part Kanaka I am also part Pake with some French blood thrown in for good measure, (hence why I use a play on my true name as a penname so as to protect my identity), I understand the need of the Native Peoples to protect their sacred places because if they are hallowed to them they are sacrosanct to me. 
We all seek the same thing, reduced movement from the Mainland and elsewhere in the world to our beloved Islands as well as a reduction in tourism.  For far too many Native People here, the overthrow of the last monarch Queen Lili’uokalani and the theft of the Islands by the United States, it is as if it happened yesterday. 
Many believe the Kingdom should be restored and that Native Peoples should have greater say if not run the entire show as once they did.  Of course as long as the federal government seeks to keep us in their corral, that will never happen.  They have too much at stake here to let the Islands return to Local control.  Of course, we hope our elected leaders will work towards returning greater sovereignty to those of us who have long called this place ‘home.’ 
Unlike the flood pouring in here now, my family’s components have a long history stretching back to before the overthrow of the monarchy as they came as traders and set their roots down here.  The Chinese and the French components of my family tree as well as the intermingling of their blood with the Hawaiian people gives me the same heritage as that the Native Peoples seek to protect. 
I think Tulsi gets it but am not sure whether “Crazy Mazie” does, she seems more intent on national politics than she is about Local ones.  That could be the end of her one day as an elected politician here in Hawaii just as it could for our other senator, Brian Schatz as it also could be for our second member of the House of Representatives Ed Case.
Time to awaken and to fight for the Islands and not the national crap that seems to permeate so much of our politics.   Aloha and thank you for being here with me today.  I could not do it without you and thanks to Chef Lilah for allowing me to quote her.

Up-and-coming Bakersfield, California, street artist, Simone, created this cartoonish caricature of me so we can keep our identities on the down low due to increasing threats, Web intrusions and threats, and so we do not lose our professional businesses because of our politics here at the AICP-END Blogs. 
That said, I began my career in the early 1970’s when I apprenticed to cook under one of the masters on the Big Island where I was born.  I moved to Oahu in the early 1980’s after having worked in both Kona and Hilo, HI, and have been there for most of my professional career. 
Moreover, I have also worked on Maui for a few years (1995-1998) and have been on Kauai (2001-2003) before returning to Honolulu.  My goal is to prepare the next generation of chefs for the future and to help the underprivileged in their struggle to attain careers in the foodservice industry.

FEATURED ALBUM OF THE DAY:









Genesis released a unique effort entitled, “Sum of the Parts” on October 12, 2014, a DVD featuring all five of the main members discussing the band’s career, their solo careers and presenting all manner of music and extras that every long-time fan of the band and of its members can and will enjoy.  We hope that everyone will seek it out and watch it as it provides incredible insights and other tidbits of joy that one can only appreciate if they possess it.  We hope you will seek it out and consider adding it to your collection.  You will be glad you did.




SPECIAL ALBUMS OF THE DAY:

Posted @ the Thursday, November 29, 2012 Blog Post:






BLUE CHEER released their fifth album, the ethereal, acidified “The Original Human Being” on September 15, 1970 and showed the band returning to fresh psychedelic experiences augmented with raw, overwhelming power when necessary.  The band now featured Dickie Peterson (bass/vocals), Normal Mayell (drums), Gary Lee Yoder (guitars) and Ralph Burns Kellogg (keyboards).  As always, most of the tunes are originals as well as a cover or two of contemporary artists of the time.  We hope you will seek this album out and consider adding it to your collection of amazing rock and roll.
Posted @ the Wednesday, August 13, 2014 Blog Post B:





The Firm released their second and final effort, “Mean Business,” on February 03, 1986.  This album is excellent but did not achieve the commercial success of their debut effort and so the band would eventually hang it up.  The music was evolving as was the overall sound and although many fans were somewhat confused, it was a challenging time in the mid-to-late 1980s for bands that had been around since the 1960s-early-to-mid-1970s.  The song, “Fortune Hunter,” is worth the price of admission alone, which is why we encourage everyone to check this one out.  The lineup is the same as the preceding effort:  Jimmy Page (guitars), Paul Rodgers (guitars/vocals), Chris Slade (drums and percussion), and Tony Franklin (bass/keyboards/backing vocals).
