Some History On Hawaiian : Aliʻi (The Elite)

Ali’i – In ancient Hawaiian society, aliʻi was a hereditary chiefly or noble rank (social class or caste). The aliʻi class consisted of the high and lesser chiefs of the various realms in the islands. They governed with divine power called mana. The aliʻi were the highest class, ranking above both kahuna (priests) and makaʻāinana (commoners). Most common translations are “Chief” and “High Chief.”

Aliʻi were full of mana and could place and remove kapu (curse or taboo) on objects. Aliʻi continued to rule the Hawaiian islands until 1893 when Queen Liliʻuokalani was overthrown by coup and the Constitutional Monarchy, Government, and supporting Aliʻi were deposed from power.

Aliʻi nui were supreme high chiefs of an island and no others were above them. The four largest Hawaiian islands (Hawaiʻi proper, Maui, Kauaʻi, and Oʻahu) were usually ruled each by their own aliʻi nui. Molokaʻi also had a line of island kings, but was later subjected to the superior power of nearby Maui and Oʻahu during the 17th and 18th centuries. Mōʻī was a special title for the highest chief of the island of Maui. Later, the title was used for all kings of the Hawaiian Islands and the Hawaiian monarchs.

Both the reigning dynasties of the united Kingdom of Hawaiʻi (1810–1893) were of aliʻi class. As each relative of those dynasties was entitled to the title aliʻi, they have later, posthumously, been popularly labeled (mostly erroneously) princesses and princes, although only a limited number of royal relatives ever received the princely title from the monarch.

PRODUCT INFORMATION BELOW :

 Our Products Eco-Friendly?
We strive to ensure that Spoonflower fabrics are good for you, and good for the earth. From our low-waste digital print process and organic fabric options to FSC-certified paper options, we seek to provide products made safely and sustainably.

DIGITAL PRINTING
Spoonflower’s digital print on demand process is designed to minimize wasted fabric and ink. Since we print only what you order, there’s no leftover printed fabric that we can’t use. Ink colors are mixed from 4-6 basic colors as your fabric is printed, so unlike screen printing, there’s no mixing of colors in advance of the print process. Our print process also doesn’t require any wet post-processing, so there’s no water consumed during printing. Spoonflower’s inks and dyes have been tested for harmful chemicals (like formaldehyde and lead) and are found to be safe for infant use.

OUR PRODUCTS
All of our fabrics have been tested for safety. We do offer two fabrics that have been certified organic according to Global Organic Textile Standards (GOTS): our Organic Cotton Sateen and Organic Cotton Knit. Our Matte Gift Wrap is made in the United States by a factory that has been certified environmentally-friendly by ISO 14001:2004, the environmental management system standard and our Satin gift wrap is chlorine-free and has been certified by the FSC as a paper made with responsibly-sourced pulp. The factory that produces the paper is carbon-neutral and manufactured in a facility that runs on Green-e certified Wind Power Energy credits.

RECYCLING AND REUSE
Sometimes a fabric order doesn’t come out looking exactly the way we think it should because of print errors or flaws in the fabric. When we see these sorts of issue, we send the piece back for reprint and add the flawed piece to our scrap pile. Every so often, we fill the back of a semi-trailer with fabric, and send it off to a fabric recycler who shreds the yardage into tiny, unrecognizable bits. These bits then get used for industrial applications like car upholstery and furniture stuffing, bedding, and flooring.

** Contact For Hawaii State Gov. & Lt. Gov. At End Of Bill Draft **

Gov. Neil Abercrombie provided state legislators and news media a marriage bill drafted by the state Attorney General. The bill is based on Senate Bill 1369, introduced in the 2013 regular session, and was drafted in collaboration with legislators, staff and stakeholders.

 

REVISED: 8/22/13 1ST DRAFT DATE:

A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO MARRIAGE.
BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF HAWAII:

1 SECTION 1. This Act shall be known as the Hawaii Marriage
2 Equality Act of 2013. The purpose of this Act is to recognize
3 marriages between individuals of the same sex in the State of
4 Hawaii.
5 The legislature acknowledges the recent decision of the
6 United States Supreme Court in United States v. Windsor, 133 S.
7 Ct. 2675 (2013), which held that Section 3 of the Defense of
8 Marriage Act, Public Law 104-199, unlawfully discriminated
9 against married same-sex couples by prohibiting the federal
10 government from recognizing those marriages and by denying
11 federal benefits and protections to those couples. This
12 legislature has already extended to same-sex couples the right
13 to enter into civil unions that provide the same rights,
14 benefits, protections, and responsibilities under state law as
15 afforded to opposite-sex couples who marry. However, these
16 civil unions are not recognized by federal law and will not
17 receive equal treatment to a marriage under federal law.
18 Therefore, it is the intent of the legislature to ensure that
Marriage Equality Bill AG 8.22.13 XXX-00(13)

Page 2
1 same-sex couples are able to take full advantage of federal
2 benefits and protections granted to married opposite-sex couples
3 by allowing same-sex couples to marry under the laws of this
4 State. It is the intent of the legislature that marriages
5 solemnized in accordance with this Act be equal in all respects
6 to the marriages of opposite-sex couples under the laws of this
7 State.
8 It is the intent of the legislature that there be no legal
9 distinction between same-sex married couples and opposite-sex
10 married couples with respect to marriage under the laws of this
11 State. Thus, the legislature intends that all provisions of law
12 regarding marriage be applied equally to same-sex couples and
13 opposite-sex couples, regardless of whether this Act does or
14 does not amend any particular provision of law.
15 SECTION 2. Chapter 572, Hawaii Revised Statutes, is
16 amended by adding seven new sections to be appropriately
17 designated and to read as follows:
18 Ҥ572-A Continuity of rights; civil union or reciprocal
19 beneficiary relationships. (a) Two individuals who are civil
20 union partners or reciprocal beneficiaries with each other and
21 who seek to marry each other shall be permitted to apply for a
22 marriage license under section 572-6 and to marry each other
23 under this chapter without first terminating their civil union
Marriage Equality Bill AG 8.22.13 XXX-00(13)

Page 3
1 or reciprocal beneficiary relationship; provided that the two
2 individuals are otherwise eligible to marry under this chapter.
3 (b) The couple’s civil union or reciprocal beneficiary
4 relationship shall continue uninterrupted until the
5 solemnization of the marriage consistent with this chapter, and
6 the solemnization of the couple’s marriage shall automatically
7 terminate the couple’s civil union or reciprocal beneficiary
8 relationship.
9 (c) The act of seeking a license for, or entering into, a
10 marriage under this chapter shall not diminish any of the
11 rights, benefits, protections, and responsibilities that existed
12 previously due to a couple’s earlier status as civil union
13 partners or reciprocal beneficiaries.
14 (d) The rights, benefits, protections, and
15 responsibilities created by the civil union or reciprocal
16 beneficiary relationship shall be continuous through the
17 marriage and deemed to have accrued as of the first date these
18 rights existed under the civil union or reciprocal beneficiary
19 relationship; provided that the civil union or reciprocal
20 beneficiary relationship was in effect at the time of the
21 solemnization of the couple’s marriage to each other.
22 (e) Any rights, benefits, protections, and
23 responsibilities created by the solemnization of a marriage that
Marriage Equality Bill AG 8.22.13 XXX-00(13)

Page 4
1 were not included within a reciprocal beneficiary relationship
2 shall be recognized as of the date the marriage was solemnized.
3 (f) Property held by the couple in tenancy by the entirety
4 shall be subject to section 509-3.
5 §572-B Interpretation of terminology to be gender neutral.
6 When necessary to implement the rights, benefits, protections,
7 and responsibilities of spouses under the laws of this State,
8 all gender-specific terminology, such as “husband”, “wife”,
9 “widow”, “widower”, or similar terms, shall be construed in a
10 gender-neutral manner. This interpretation shall apply to all
11 sources of law, including statutes, administrative rules, court
12 decisions, the common law, or any other source of law.
13 §572-C Right of parents. Parentage rights based on
14 marriage shall be the same for all married spouses regardless of
15 the gender of the spouses. These rights shall include, but are
16 not limited to, paternity, maternity, and parentage presumptions
17 based on marriage.
18 §572-D Reliance on federal law. Any law of this State
19 that refers to, adopts, or relies upon federal law, including
20 but not limited to the Internal Revenue Code, as amended, shall
21 apply to all marriages recognized under the laws of this State
22 as if federal law recognized such marriages in the same manner
Marriage Equality Bill AG 8.22.13 XXX-00(13)

Page 5
1 as the laws of this State, so that all marriages receive equal
2 treatment.
3 §572-E Procedure to administratively convert civil unions
4 to marriages. (a) Two individuals who are civil union partners
5 and who entered into the civil union in Hawaii may elect to have
6 their civil union legally converted to a marriage by operation
7 of law without appearing personally before an agent and without
8 solemnization as required by this chapter by:
9 (1) 10
Applying for a marriage license pursuant to section
572-6 by filing their application, in person or by
mail with the department of health;
Providing a signed, notarized declaration that they
entered into their civil union in Hawaii and that they
desire to convert their civil union to a marriage;
Paying the marriage license fee as required by section
572-5; and
20 notarized
21 health shall confirm that the applicants are civil union
22 partners who entered into their civil union in Hawaii and shall
23 issue a certificate of marriage, with the effective date of the
Providing all information required by the marriage
license application.
Upon receipt of a marriage license application and
declaration requesting conversion, the department of
Marriage Equality Bill AG 8.22.13 XXX-00(13)

Page 6
1 marriage being the date the department accepts the request for
2 conversion for filing.
3 (c) All rights, benefits, protections, and
4 responsibilities of marriage, including continuity of rights as
5 provided in section 572-A, shall apply to civil unions that are
6 administratively converted to marriages pursuant to this
7 section.
8 (d) Certificates of marriage issued pursuant to this
9 section shall be deemed the same as certificates of marriage
10 issued pursuant to section 572-13 and shall be processed in the
11 same manner.
12 (e) Marriages converted from civil unions pursuant to this
13 section shall be deemed solemnized for all purposes.
14 §572-F Refusal to solemnize a marriage. Nothing in this
15 chapter shall be construed to require any person authorized to
16 perform solemnizations pursuant to this chapter to solemnize any
17 marriage in violation of the person’s rights as guaranteed by
18 the Constitution of this State and the United States
19 Constitution. No authorized person who fails or refuses to
20 solemnize any marriage under this section shall be subject to
21 any fine, penalty, injunction, administrative proceeding, or
22 civil liability for the failure or refusal.
Marriage Equality Bill AG 8.22.13 XXX-00(13)

§572-G Religious organizations and facilities; liability exemption under certain circumstances. (a) A religious organization shall not be required to make a religious facility owned or leased by the religious organization available for solemnization of a particular marriage; provided that:

Page 7
religious
The religious facility is regularly used by the
religious organization for its religious purposes;
For solemnization of marriages pursuant to this
chapter, the religious organization restricts use of
the religious facility to its members; and
The religious organization does not operate the
religious facility as a for-profit business.
A religious organization that refuses to make a
facility available for solemnization of a marriage
under subsection (a) shall not be subject to any fine, penalty,
injunction, administrative proceeding, or civil liability for
the refusal.
(c) Nothing in this section shall be interpreted to exempt
the owner or operator of any religious facility from the
requirements of chapter 489 if the religious facility is a place
of public accommodation as defined in section 489-2.”

22 SECTION 7. Section 572C-2, Hawaii Revised Statutes, is
23 amended to read as follows:
Marriage Equality Bill AG 8.22.13 XXX-00(13)

Page 13
1 “[[]§572C-2[]] Findings. [The legislature finds that the
2 people of Hawaii choose to preserve the tradition of marriage as
3 a unique social institution based upon the committed union of
4 one man and one woman. The legislature further finds that
5 because of its unique status, marriage provides access to a
6 multiplicity of rights and benefits throughout our laws that are
7 contingent upon that status. As such, marriage should be
8 subject to restrictions such as prohibiting respective parties
9 to a valid marriage contract from standing in relation to each
10 other, i.e., brother and sister of the half as well as to the
11 whole blood, uncle and niece, aunt and nephew.
12 However, the legislature concurrently] The legislature
13 acknowledges that there are many individuals who have
14 significant personal, emotional, and economic relationships with
15 another individual yet are prohibited by [such] legal
16 restrictions from marrying. For example, two individuals who
17 are related to one another, such as a widowed mother and her
18 unmarried son[, or two individuals who are of the same gender].
19 Therefore, the legislature believes that certain rights and
20 benefits presently available only to married couples should be
21 made available to couples comprised of two individuals who are
22 legally prohibited from marrying one another.”
Marriage Equality Bill AG 8.22.13 XXX-00(13)

Page 14
1 SECTION 8. Section 580-1, Hawaii Revised Statutes, is
2 amended to read as follows:
3 Ҥ580-1 Jurisdiction; hearing. (a) Exclusive original
4 jurisdiction in matters of annulment, divorce, and separation,
5 subject to section 603-37 as to change of venue, and subject
6 also to appeal according to law, is conferred upon the family
7 court of the circuit in which the applicant has been domiciled
8 or has been physically present for a continuous period of at
9 least three months next preceding the application therefor[.],
10 except as provided in subsection (b). No absolute divorce from
11 the bond of matrimony shall be granted for any cause unless
12 either party to the marriage has been domiciled or has been
13 physically present in the State for a continuous period of at
14 least six months next preceding the application therefor[.],
15 except as provided in subsection (b). A person who may be
16 residing on any military or federal base, installation, or
17 reservation within the State or who may be present in the State
18 under military orders shall not thereby be prohibited from
19 meeting the requirements of this section. The family court of
20 each circuit shall have jurisdiction over all proceedings
21 relating to the annulment, divorce, and separation of civil
