Recent attempts to address historical injustices related to Hawaiian land and more specifically the Crown Lands have been resurfacing in the news over the past couple of years. These arguments are focused on Hawaiian land terminology such as "allodial," "freehold," "fee-simple," etc. This talk will attempt to define these terms and will go on to explain how the "Republic of Hawaii" transmuted private property (the Crown Lands) into government property (the Public Lands) without compensation.
