The Lawful Hawaiian Government, an independence group that wants to restore the authority of the old Hawaiian Kingdom, has designated a field of lava on Hawaii’s Big Island as its official UFO Landing Pad and Star Visitor Sanctuary. Hawaii is not traditionally thought of as a center for major diplomacy, but that may soon change if space visitors land in a remote area of Hawaii’s Big Island according to the Wall Street Journal. Appearing on the front page of the Feb 4 edition was an article titled, “How Space Aliens Could Advance Cause of Hawaiian Independence,” Alejandro Lazo discussed the Hawaii Star Visitor Sanctuary created to welcome space aliens, and its impact on Hawaii’s growing sovereign independence movement.
Preparing to welcome space aliens to Earth is not as farfetched as it seems. In September 2014, NASA and the Library of Congress held a symposium titled “Preparing for Discovery”, where the likelihood of extraterrestrial life being discovered was widely regarded as inevitable. Last week, the Astrobiology Magazine released an article where the symposium convener, Professor Steven Dick, was interviewed in his official capacity of NASA/Library of Congress Chair of Astrobiology. Dick shared his thoughts on his position, the symposium, and the implications of discovering alien life and making contact. "It’s very farsighted for NASA to fund a position like this…. They have all their programs in astrobiology, they fund the scientists, but here they fund somebody to think about what the implications might be. It’s a good idea to do this, to foresee what might happen before it occurs.”
NASA and the Library of Congress have a rival in preparing for the discovery and making contact with extraterrestrial life. Lazo’s Wall Street Journal article covered the genesis of the Hawaii Star Visitor Sanctuary, and reactions to the idea of a creating a landing place for space aliens. Lazo interviewed Dr Seth Shostak, senior astronomer for the Center for SETI Research who was skeptical: " In terms of any of this making any sense, of course it doesn’t. If you had the technology to fly yourself to another planet, to visit another star system in our galaxy, I think the last of your concerns would be finding a flat, ready-made landing strip.
Shestak’s response misses the point. Space aliens seeking to land on Earth would certainly not have a shortage of landing options, but clearly would have a desire to be welcomed rather than shot at. Currently, no government on Earth has developed a clear policy where they would officially welcome alien visitors who peacefully appear in the skies.
The closest we have come was back on Dec 20, 2007, when Japan’s Defense Minister, Shigeru Ishiba, made a statement in response to a parliamentary question of how the Defense Force would respond to UFOs appearing in Japanese airspace. Ishiba said that official defense policy was that if no hostile intent was displayed, the Japanese Defense Force would not militarily engage with the space visitors. Ishiba's statement is one of the few public policy statements released on possible responses to extraterrestrial visitors by a major nation. Unfortunately, his statement was widely ridiculed by the international media and did not result in an official policy being developed by Japan
In contrast, representatives of the Lawful Hawaiian Government took up the issue, and went ahead in issuing a declaration officially welcoming star visitors to sovereign land it controls. On June 27, 2014, land was officially dedicated by Lawful Hawaiian Government representatives including its Minister for the Interior, Naliko Markel. Later, a document setting out protocols for extraterrestrial contact was approved by Lawful Hawaiian Government representatives. At the Lawful Hawaiian Government’s annual congressional convention held in January 2015, both documents concerning the Hawaii Star Visitor Sanctuary were officially presented and included in the official parliamentary record. Both the Prime Minister, Henry Noa, and Foreign Minister, Nelson Armitage, subsequently gave interviews in which they expressed their support of the initiative by Big Island representatives to welcome star visitors to Hawaii.
What is going to happen now? No one knows for sure. As Lazo writes, “so far, curious Earthlings are the only outsiders who have turned up.” But that can quickly change if space aliens accept the welcome by the Lawful Hawaiian Government. Lazo is correct that if aliens do accept, that would give a boost to Hawaii’s sovereign independence movement, Not only would Hawaii become a major center for diplomacy at a galactic level, but humanity would get a giant boost to the stars! http://www.examiner.com/article/hawaii-welcomes-diplomatic-relations-wit... More here: KAIMU, Hawaii—Dark igneous rock crunches beneath Garry Hoffeld’s sandals as he crosses the cratered landscape of a remote corner of Hawaii’s Big Island. But he is walking over no ordinary field of hardened lava: This is the site of Hawaii’s Star Visitor Sanctuary and UFO Landing Pad. The Lawful Hawaiian Government, an independence group that wants to restore the authority of the old Hawaiian Kingdom, has designated a field of lava on Hawaii’s Big Island as its official UFO Landing Pad and Star Visitor Sanctuary. http://www.wsj.com/articles/how-space-aliens-could-advance-cause-of-hawa...
Mr. Hoffeld, a member of the Lawful Hawaiian Government, a Hawaiian sovereignty group that seeks independence from the U.S., sees the lava field as a perfect spot for extraterrestrial encounters.
“It just sort of looks like a landing pad,” says the 61-year-old Mr. Hoffeld, gesturing toward an undeveloped patch of black and red earth. An altar of black rocks cradling some futuristic-looking ornaments stands nearby. A handmade sign announces “Star Visitor Sanctuary.”
Seeking out alien visitors might seem as improbable as reinstating the Hawaiian Kingdom of more than 120 years ago. But the Lawful Hawaiian Government, which created the alien welcome mat last year, believes it could help advertise its cause. Alien visitors are invited to “establish diplomatic relations” and demonstrate their technologies “for the benefit of all humanity, marine and animal life.”
“The idea is to announce to the world, and to the universe, that Hawaii is here, Hawaii is back, Hawaii is a neutral country,” said Mr. Hoffeld, his government’s Big Island coordinator. “We’re interested in making peaceful relationships with everybody on the world—and even off the world.”
Hawaii’s sanctuary isn’t the only spot on Earth with strange associations. The renowned Peruvian Nazca Lines—ancient, intricate etches called geoglyphs in the high desert of southern Peru—have led to speculation that ancient astronauts or aliens helped put them there. The official Web page of the city of Roswell, N.M., boasts that Roswell is “well known not only for aliens,” but also for its “hospitality in welcoming new businesses.” The town of St. Paul, in the Canadian province of Alberta, dedicated its own UFO landing pad in 1967.
“I hope they are well aware that they have competition,” said Seth Shostak, senior astronomer and director of the Center for SETI Research, which studies the universe for signs of extraterrestrial life from Mountain View, Calif. “In terms of any of this making any sense, of course it doesn’t. If you had the technology to fly yourself to another planet, to visit another star system in our galaxy, I think the last of your concerns would be finding a flat, ready-made landing strip.”
But Mr. Hoffeld waves off such skepticism with an easy going grin.

“It’s really symbolic,” Mr. Hoffeld says. “I don’t know that we actually expect to have a UFO physically land on the pad right there. But it’s a nice, easy-access area, where we can symbolically place the intention of having an intelligent, aloha-type connection with extraterrestrials.”
The Hawaiian location certainly exhibits the spirit of aloha, with a pristine black sand beach and a nearby kava bar featuring live Hawaiian music.
It was the owner of the bar, Robert Keliihoomalu, known locally as Uncle Robert, who came up with the idea of reaching out to aliens. A “noble” of the Lawful Hawaiian Government, Mr. Keliihoomalu espouses the belief that native Hawaiians descended to Earth from the constellation Pleiades. He expects the aliens will share their technology soon when they revisit Earth.
“The future is going to be beautiful,” Mr. Keliihoomalu said.
While efforts to make contact with star travelers might seem otherworldly, the concept of Hawaiian independence is taken quite seriously. Once a sovereign nation, the Hawaiian Kingdom was overthrown in 1893 by U.S. business interests. The islands’ status remained unresolved for years, as the U.S. Senate failed to ratify an annexation treaty. The U.S. bases its claim to Hawaii on an 1898 joint resolution of Congress.
President Bill Clinton signed an “apology resolution” in 1993, recognizing that native Hawaiians never relinquished their claims. The Lawful Hawaiian Government, which began as the Reinstated Hawaiian Government in 1999, makes the argument that it is indeed the lawful government, and runs a parallel authority complete with elections and services for its citizens. It is considered one of the leading groups in a wider sovereignty movement.
“Hawaiians would have a very different vision of what Hawaii would be,” Williamson B.C. Chang, a professor of law at the University of Hawaii, said regarding the creation of the UFO landing pad.
Mr. Hoffeld, a laid-back mainlander from California, moved to Hawaii in 1991 after buying property on the Big Island from a friend in a bar one night in Santa Cruz, Calif., he said. He spent several years surfing and living the bachelor life until he met and married a Hawaiian. His wife, Cyd, is 52. Increasingly imbued with Hawaiian culture, Mr. Hoffeld says, he “really began living as if I was a Hawaiian.” As his new government’s Big Island coordinator, Mr. Hoffeld was asked by Mr. Keliihoomalu to establish the landing pad.
Mr. Hoffeld soon enlisted the help of Michael Salla, a former American University professor who runs a center for “exopolitics”—the study of the political implications of extraterrestrial life—out of his Big Island home.
Dr. Salla advised Mr. Hoffeld that by creating a space sanctuary, his government wouldn’t only be inviting space travelers to make contact, but it would also further establish its claims under international law.
“Countries do this all the time,” Dr. Salla said. “They assign sovereign territoriality to a particular piece of land for diplomatic purposes, and so that’s how you have embassies and consulates being created all around the world.”
The lava field, created by a flow that began in the 1980s and oozed for several years, completely burying the small village of Kaimu, turned out to make the most sense for the site, Mr. Hoffeld said.
For members of Hawaii’s sovereignty movement, the Star Visitor Sanctuary and UFO Landing Pad have become a galvanizing endeavor. The attorney general of the Hawaiian Kingdom, another independence group, is studying how citizenship and immigration laws would apply to space travelers.
The pad’s creators are ready to greet aliens. Ceremonies and stargazing outings are held there regularly. But so far, curious Earthlings are the only outsiders who have turned up. - http://www.wsj.com/articles/how-space-aliens-could-advance-cause-of-hawa...
