Hawaii Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard  made an appearance at Standing Rock in North Dakota, on Saturday Dec 3, 2016.  Were thousands of protestors for the Standing Rock Sioux tribe in North Dakota have stood in protest of the Dakota Access Pipeline construction through their sacred lands.

Yet Gabbard in her own congressional state of Hawaii does not address the continued atrocities of the stealing of the Hawaiian lands and the non payment of ceded land agreements by the Government.  Those are just some of the injustices against the native Hawaiians who are in fact, the largest homeless population in the Hawaiian Islands, as registered in the 2016 HUD, Hawaii,  Point in Time Homeless Counts,  the Native Hawaiians are the largest homeless population in the Hawaiian Islands.

It has become so shameful for Gabbard to as usual “grab the spotlight on a situation”, like Standing Rock. But back home in Tulsi’s own State,  thousands of  Homeless Native Hawaiians, children, families & men, have no where to stand or lay their heads upon, and ever more of an outcry is how Hawaiian’s have been stripped of their land and now have no land to call their own.  Gabbard has allowed Homeless Native Hawaiian’s to be denied any rights, for the Homeless Native Hawaiian’s to be pushed around thrown out to the streets like trash, many Hawaiian’s are taken as prisoners or incarcerated, while for more than a century the Hawaiians have been removed from their lands, then denied access, have suffered and continue to suffer.

But Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard is quick to use the Hawaiian’s phrase of ALOHA, but  clearly we see no aloha in Gabbards actions.

Check back as we will keep you posted with more facts of the ongoing plight and struggles of the Homeless Native Hawaiian’s who have no little grass shack or HALE (Home) to call their own.
