About Ali`i Mana`o Nui Lanny Sinkin

I am Ali`i Mana`o Nui Lanny Sinkin. Ali`i Mana`o Nui was a position created by Queen Liliu'okalani that was not filled before she was overthrown. The kuleana (sacred path) of that position is to speak the truth to the monarch without any fear of punishment. The position is one of trusted advisor and friend. I always thought that the position was a really good one for a monarch to create because people tend to be so deferential that the monarch might not always be told the full truth for fear of offending. I have no such restrictions placed on me. The King and I have worked closely together for eight or nine years now. When the King agreed to assume the position of King, he immediately set about to achieve the goal of full independence. Over the years, he and I have produced numerous documents addressing a broad range of issues (found at KingdomofHawaii.info). The most important is the one that the King wrote which records the vision and plan for the restored nation. I consider myself to have a sacred responsibility to provide my best advice to the King at all times.
