I. CONTEXT AND CONCEPT
This article applies the indigenous Hawaiian value and practice of
kutleana (a received sense of ancestrally-based responsibility) as a basic
theme to propose a historiography for a Hawaiian national consciousness
in the contexts of several historically citable transformations of power
that occurred in the country from 1780 c.a. to 2001. Some of these
transformations have been subtle and others radical with their long-term
effects continuing to directly impact people, places, and ideas here and
abroad to this day.
My work advocates a context-based approach for the development of a
body of publishable research that gives life and structure to a Hawaiian
national consciousness and connects thereby to the theory of State
continuity. To begin to restore fully a sources-centered study of
Kingdom law, governance, and politics for domestic affairs today, may
better assure the physical reality of more situation-appropriate real
world tests of sovereign Hawaiian Statehood tomorrow. A national
restoration  platform  for Hawaiian  intellectualism  must include
historiography as a key building block. The presumption here is that
such a connection to the past as a most effective teacher is vital to the
reestablishment of a historically authentic Hawaiian national identity.
The Hawaiian government as the voice to speak again someday for the
sovereign and independent international person or State first requires
sequential stages of specific intellectual and broader community and
institutional reformulation.
One necessary piece of that intellectual support structure is this article as
an initial blueprint for a more inclusive, intra-national and international,
event-based Hawaiian historiography. To encourage others in such a
quest from their own respective fields and sets of research interests is one
