One hundred years after American marines overthrew the elected Native Hawaiian government in support of white American sugar-planters, Native Hawaiians asserted their self-determination during marches, debates, ceremonies, and ten days of testimony before an international panel of legal and human rights experts. Of the nine distinguished judges, Sharon Venne and Ward Churchill agreed to serve as editors for the 20,000 pages of testimony presented during those August 1993 hearings. Organized into sections of oral testimony, essays, charges, and findings, this 800-page anthology presents the most extensive, diverse, and accessible argument for Native Hawaiian sovereignty.
