"When I read the Public Law for the first time, the first thought that occurred to me is that now, after 100 years, the United States government, has finally and officially conceded, as a matter of United States law, that Native Hawaiian people have the right to restore the independent nation state that you had in 1893 when the United States government came and destroyed it.
