Hawaii's 50th Anniversary as a State

Today marks the 50th anniversary of the State of Hawaii.


In visiting the western Tiffany clan in Hawaii often since 1984, Hawaii has become my second home. It's with mixed feelings based on history that today is celebrated. Fortunately in the last two decades, the resurgance of the Hawaiian Nation has emerged stronger than ever. The native ways are definitely on the rise and many Hawaiians in fact are actively working to re-establish the Kingdom of Hawaii and remove themselves from the United States. Some things never change be it the Peaks Island secession efforts or reclaiming the Hawaiian Kingdom.


As my small tribute to Hawaii, here are some pics I took last October. With Sean visiting from Boulder, I turned him loose with my pics and some music from IZ; absolutely enjoy the results.
