The Hawaiian sovereignty movement (Hawaiianke ea Hawai‘i) is a political movement seeking some form of sovereignty for Hawai’i. Generally, the movement’s focus is on self-determination and self-governance, either for Hawaiʻi as an independent nation (in many proposals, for “Hawaiian nationals” descended from subjects of the Hawaiian Kingdom or declaring themselves as such by choice), or for people of whole or part native Hawaiian ancestry in an indigenous “nation to nation” relationship akin to tribal sovereignty in the U.S.

Some groups also advocate some form of redress from the United States for the 1893 overthrow of Queen Liliʻuokalani, and for what is described as a prolonged military occupation beginning with the 1898 annexation. The movement generally views both the overthrow and annexation as illegal. ~Wikipedia
