A Tribute to Kupuna Sam Kaleleiki

Tuesday, January 6th, 2015

A Sovereign Kanaka Maoli

Uncle Sam Kaleleiki, Jr
Samuel Kaleleiki, Jr.

      On New Year’s eve, Hawai’i lost a true patriot. Kupuna Samuel Kaleleiki, Jr., affectionately known as “Uncle Sam” died at Queens Hospital in Honolulu. He was 79.  The painting of Uncle Sam above by Donna Grabow from a film where Sam is saying “You gotta focus…” captures the deep commitment of his life for justice. 

      Sam was a retired U.S. Marine Corps Sergeant Major having served 30 years, receiving Purple Hearts in Korea and Vietnam. Following retirement and returning home to Hawai’i, Sam saw Hawaiian people destitute and committed his life to changing the situation. This led to his involvement in the cause of justice, an end to U.S. occupation of Hawai’i, and the re-establishment of the sovereign Kingdom of Hawai’i.

      Uncle Sam became a member of the House of Nobles of the Reinstated Lawful Government of Hawai’i. He also served as President of Ohana Ho’opakele for many years seeking to establish Pu’uhonua as alternatives to prison. He helped many people on a personal level and the cause of justice for all.

      A Memorial Celebration of Uncle Sam’s life will take place on Sunday January 18th, 2015, 9:00 am – 11:00 am at Uncle Robert Keli’iho’omalu’s family compound at Kaimu, Kalapana.

Aloha Uncle Sam & Mahalo for the Inspiration of Your Life!
