About Ali`i nui mō`ī Edmund K. Silva, Jr.

I am Edmund Keli`i Silva, Jr., Ali`i Nui (Sovereign) of the Kingdom of Hawai`i. On my mother's side I am the direct lineal descendent of King Kamehameha the Great, and heir to the throne. And, on my father's side I am the direct lineal heir to King Kamehameha Nui of the kingdom of Maui before King Kamehameha the Great unified the lands. On November 22, 2002, the prime minister of the Hawaiian kingdom, the Council of Regency, Nā Kupuna Council O' Hawai`i Nei, the Nā Kupuna Council Hawai`i Moku of the legislative body of government, and the Royal Kupunas of the House of Nobles, proclaimed that I am the lawful successor to Ali`i Nuis (High Chiefs) of ancient Hawai`i. I am honored, and consider it my sacred duty, to be Ali`i Nui Mō`ī of the Kingdom of Hawai`i.
