**Updated ISA Statement Regarding Coronavirus**

ISA has been monitoring recent global developments quite closely in the run-up to the Hawaii annual convention in late March.

ISA 2020 Land Acknowledgement

As we convene, we acknowledge Hawaiʻi as an indigenous space where the descendants of the original people are kānaka ʻōiwi or Native Hawaiian.

The ‘āina [ayne-ah – meaning LAND] on which we gather is located in the ahupua‘a [ahhoo-pu-ah-ah] of Waikīkī, in the moku [moh-koo] of Kona, on the mokupuni [moh-koopu-ni] of O‘ahu [oh-ah-hoo], in the pae‘āina [pie-ayne-ah] of Hawai‘i.

We recognize that her majesty Queen Lili‘uokalani [Lee-lee-ooh-oh-kah-lani] yielded the Hawaiian Kingdom and these territories under duress and protest to the United States to avoid the bloodshed of her people, who are recognized in the Kingdom’s law and today as kānaka Maoli. We further recognize that generations of indigenous Hawaiians and their knowledge systems shaped Hawai‘i in a sustainable way that allow us to enjoy her gifts today. For this, We are truly grateful.
