[27 Mei 2019] What is a Royal Patent in relation to Kuleana Lands?

Keeaumoku Kapu of Na Aikane O Maui Inc shared the connection between a Royal Patent, Kuleana Land, Land Grants, and lands illegally seized by the United States after occupation began.

The illegally seized national lands, mistakenly referred to as “ceded lands”, were and are in the hands of various U.S. Occupational Government departments, i.e. Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR), the U.S. Military, and so on.
