I don't see nor read Ken Conklin nor Thurston Twigg-Smith mentioning the Augustine Educational Foundation latest award of $350,000 in tuition scholarships to 336 Hawaii Catholic school students. Oh that's right. They only discuss Hawaiians. Seriously... the Augustine Educational Foundation has presented more than $3.1 million in scholarships since 1986. Do Hawaiians grumble that only Catholics school students receive this aid? No. Anyway good news in the islands:

Catholic group gives $350,000 in tuition aid

The Augustine Educational Foundation has awarded $350,000 in tuition scholarships to 336 Hawaii Catholic school students.

The grants were paid to Catholic schools on the four major islands for 215 Oahu recipients, 48 on the Big Island, 27 on Kauai and 46 on Maui. Students in grades K-8 received $1,000, and in grades 9-12, $1,500.

The foundation has presented more than $3.1 million in scholarships since 1986. It was founded with the profits from the sale of St. Augustine School in Waikiki, and has been endowed by several contributors, including $2 million from the Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation.

For information on the scholarships available to financially needy students, call 808-203-6736.

I could not respond on your page where you mention Lance Larsen but I am a 1L and my classmate is Lance Larsen. His dad is the Lance P. Larsen that tried to go to the Hague, but due to his unrecognized Hawaiian Kingdom passport, was unable to gain entry.

Derek told me that too. d I asked him if he had access to their IDs at the very least so that I could see for myself but right now I have reasons to believe they are the same person even though you and Derek have told me that they are not. I would like to see some hard copy evidence of their identity since Lance Larsen seemed to have bragged about it here: http://blog.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=blog.view&friendID=3373715&blogID=57048904&Mytoken=e8d338b6-fb66-43a0-93b5-d4239d55545e

I do not think that Lance Larsen was trying to brag about him being the Lance Larsen that went to the Hague. That posting looks like it was taken from an e-mail Derek sent out to the members of 'Ahahui O Hawai'i. Derek wanted us to read that journal article and encouraged us to at least look it up for Lexis Nexis points. Those other two guys who responded to Lance Larsen's post have never been to a "Hui" meeting. I do not think they are on the Hui's e-mail list.

It's not just that one post of his. There is more.
Nov. 14th, 2005 07:51 pm (UTC)
From that myspace page of his, how old would you say that Lance Larsen is?
Nov. 14th, 2005 07:52 pm (UTC)
That post above is mine. I was logged out of Live Journal responding to the e-mail notice I received.
Nov. 14th, 2005 07:55 pm (UTC)
29 or so.

Here is a part of that e-mail I wrote about above,

"You looking for Lexis Nexis points? For 1Ls who dunno, you get 10 lexis nexis points a day just for doing research on lexis nexis. If you answer the Fact or Fiction question correctly, you get another 10 points. So, you can earn a total of 20 points a day and 100 points in 5 days.

Relevant to today's meeting, you can do a search on lexis by entering the citation 95 A.J.I.L. 927. You can do this on the lexis Law School Home page under "Get Citation" in the "enter citation" field. Today, I mentioned that there's an emerging legal theory on Hawaiian independence and this journal article discusses it and addresses an arbitration case 5 years ago at Permanent Court of Arbitration at the Hague in the Netherlands.

The article is written by David J. Bederman. Yeah, I know. "Who the hell is that? I've never heard of him." He's got an impressive background on international law and teaches at the Emory School of Law. Bederman "worked as a legal advisor at the Iran/United States Claims Tribunal at The Hague."

Derek already told you that there are two different Lance Larsen's and that one of them was the son? From your post, it sounds like you two were having a dispute. If that is the case, I am surprised that Derek gave you that important detail about them being father and son.
Nov. 14th, 2005 07:54 pm (UTC)
No... I did not have a "dispute" with Derek. My assertion is that Lance P. Larsen as listed in the complaint with the post office box on Hawaii is the same Lance Larsen that was/is a member of the HLSP. Someone else told me that they are probably father and son but that does not fit with other information. Someone else actually showed me what this Lance Larsen wrote in his MySpace:

You're famous!! While you're at it look up 100 Hawai'i 195, 58 P.3d 1242 a "landmark" case deciding the issue of "mistake of fact" for all Hawaii courts.

That doesn't seem like the same email that you sent out. It just does not make sense with some of the other material too.
Nov. 14th, 2005 10:10 pm (UTC)
Just so we are clear, that e-mail was received by me and other 'Ahahui O Hawai'i members, sent by Derek. I received that e-mail around October 19. I think it is similar enough from that e-mail because Derek mentioned the Lexis Nexis points and encouraged us Hui members to look it up even if just for 10 points.

I think the comments of Roland and the Korean Abdul-Jabbar only show that those two guys are not familiar enough. Roland is a classmate of mine as well as Lance. Roland does not know about the case in addition to other Hawaiian issues.

Lance P. Larsen Sr. who was the Larsen in Larsen v. HK, is married to Kawehi Kanui, who is somewhat well known among the activists in the Hawaiian community. She is close to or around her 50s. Lance Larsen Jr., is not married to a middle-aged woman.

Lance Jr.'s my space page provides a picture of him. The only other public source of a picture, that I can think of, of Lance Sr. would come from an edition of "The Polynesian" that was in print for a while between 2001-2002. If you know someone who subscribed to The Polynesian while it was in print, they should be able to provide you with this picture. Other than that, I do not know how anyone else would be able to obtain a picture of Lance Sr., since he lives somewhere on the Big Island.

Yes... all valid points. That is why Kalani and I are still discussing it because we don't know for sure. I know that it was reported that in 1998 to around 1999 Lance P. Larsen allegedly failed to register his vehicle. That was one bases of his lawsuit against the kindgom. That would pinpoint his location to Waimea or so (based on published records) but the ages still don't explain much since it could very well be Lance P. Larsen who is the law student.

This was partly based on what Ken Conklin wrote about Lance Larsen and Keanu Sai. He did not provide any evidence yet wrote a diatribe about him implying that he is being truthful when he has yet to prove that they are the same person. That was one of our objectives as well since we are working on addressing some of Conklin's invalid arguments. That is primarily why I asked Derek to see their IDs.

Either way there is no way to confirm nor deny unless I ask them directly which I have yet to do. So far we have been discussing that it's father and son and I've contacted a few people to verify this which seems illogical but I know that the Hawaiian way can be NOT to be mahaoi by asking directly and instead asking indirectly. I must admit though that alot of what I write especially about Lance P. Larsen seems mahaoi but I'm only trying to find out for sure if it's the same as the law student.
