The Latest Unconstitutional Anti- European Bias at Kilauea Military Camp and Hawaii Volcanoes National Park

A close up of the giant offical park event poster prominently displayed at this very moment outside the Hawai`i Volcanoes National Park Visitor Center Front Door

 Still no response from the National Park Service:

-Jon Jarvis
-Christine Lehnertz
-Cindy Orlando

Dear Ms. Sousa, Mr. Jarvis, Ms. Orlando, and Ms. Lehnertz,

 I was told by Ms. Sousa that it was too difficult for you to “analyze” a website entry which was high contrast light on dark and which strangely even I, who am legally blind without correction can easily see. She also “ could not see” the giant oversized photograph on the link I sent, so I am enclosing the photograph as an attachment and pasting the contents of the website blog just sent  in a previous message, yet again, into this email.

Ms. Sousa says that this is why no one has responded to my previous email for months…because none of you could “see” it. . This is odd since obviously the correspondence below, for example originally sent to Ms. Cindy Orlando, was in email form and she also was sent the photograph. In case Ms. Orlando could not “see” the photograph, all she would have to do is look at the giant oversized park bulletin that was outside the visitor center where she has her offices.

I also have all of the original email correspondence and this has been forwarded to more than one individual. I have yet to receive a response  in regard to the civil rights violations by Hawaii Volcanos National Park by any Park administrator. There is detailed information both about our very serious concerns of anti- European bias towards both our religion and race and and about the facts of this case below. There are also other letters that express this concern. Please acknowledge receipt of this and the other emails sent.

Update to Previous Entry Below:

Here is and example of just how much respect the government has for European religion and our right to practice our native religion and here are the people involved.

Dear Ms. Fenner,


Your concerns about the former chapel at the Kilauea Military Camp have been brought to my attention.  Please direct any future correspondence concerning

the former chapel to this office only.  


I will appreciate your cooperation with this request.

Dear Ms. Bomier,

On what basis do you make such a request? With only a couple exceptions, the correspondence I have received, when I have received any, has been condescending and evasive and lacking in even the most basic common courtesy.

In what way have you dealt with this issue? None of you have any right to engage in or cooperate with institutionalized anti-European racism and discrimination against native European religion. You and your colleagues are answerable to the public and not the other way around.

I would like a timely response that is relevant to the concerns I have raised. It is time for substantive action. Serious violations of regulations have occurred. If you have no comment to make, you are welcome to say that too. Be aware that this will be published. Thank you.

Original Entry:

Here is a copy of an email I just sent regarding the issue of anti European hatred and discrimination in government facilites against those of the European religion and race.

Dear Ms. Orlando and Mr. Hart and Colonel Mueller ,

There recently have been extremely unprofessional, immoral and illegal acts  or I would even say a racist campaign waged against those of European ethnicity and religion, actions which KMC, the US ARMY and Hawaii Volcanoes National Park have all either initiated or colluded with. The purpose of this campaign has been to wipe out European religion and culture from those choices that are offered through ongoing exclusion and harassment and this pattern has continued for many months now.  I have some questions for each of you.

If you will remember, I received the following almost unbelievably biased email from KMC Management. Please note the sections outlined in red:

              We are delighted  to let you use our facilities for your services.  Here are a few things you need to do---

1.  Since we book 1 year out and KMC is a self supporting entity if someone wants to use our chapel and pay for its use, you will not be able to use it that day.  We would like you to check with us every 2 weeks and we can let you know if the chapel will be available.  Please e-mail to this e-mail address.

2.  Currently the only date that is not available is May 19th as we have a church retreat here that has it reserved.  And of course December 24th for Volcano Chorus.

3.  Chapel must be left as it is found.  If the chapel is dirty we will charge a $25.00 cleaning fee

4.  Since you are not a 501c  and  because we are a government entity, you may not charge for your services

5.  If it is known you are charging for services the use of the chapel will be terminated.

If you have any issues with these rules, please do not hesitate to contact us.

               Mahalo, denise

1) I would like to know how it is even remotely possible that Christian services were allowed to continue after it was officially discovered by you, and your colleague, that Catholic and Protestant clergy were taking donations from visitors against army policy? It is clear also that KMC Management was aware of this and has been for many years and yet they still sent the email above.  We never took a single donation and were threatened and insulted, while Semitic religion services have been allowed to collect donations openly, and even have envelopes printed up for that  purpose and appointed treasurers, and offering dishes of  various kinds are openly displayed. One has to wonder why they were allowed to do so openly, against regulations, and to continue to have services after this violation was discovered. As the US Army Chaplain, do you have an answer for me, Colonel Mueller?

Denise Millar of KMC Management sent us racially and religiously biased emails repeatedly, intruded upon our services under false pretenses with the collusion of two fake congregants, and has now openly promoted a plan of “getting rid” of the Odinist services after the chapel is decommissioned by the expedient of requiring insurance, which she thinks the Protestants and Catholics can come up with but which the “skinhead psychopaths” (by this she actually meant us) could not. Denise Miller also informed callers that there were no services on Memorial Day when they asked, when in fact there was an Odinist Memorial Service that day, something she was well aware of because she did the scheduling. She went out of her way to mention there were Christian and Protestant services the following Sunday of course.  Her supervisor, Marc Swanson was aware of her actions as well and so have you been Mr. Hart for quite some time.


2) Have you any explanation, Mr. Hart, for why, in the face of such seriously racial and religiously biased behavior as this, these two people, Marc Swanson and Denise Miller, have been allowed to continue unchecked in waging this war on European people and our religion? Why are they even still employed?


3) It also begs the question of why in light of the extremely racist and religiously biased behavior and willful and knowing defiance of army regulations  and federal law exhibited by KMC management, the lease holders are allowed to continue to lease this property from the US Army?  This is for Colonel Mueller and his superior officer Antonio J. McElroy, who has not had the courtesy to reply to me yet about whether the public is to have some way to protest or have any input in the idea of suddenly getting the chapel “off the books” of the US Army and giving it over to the people above to manage it. Such a action would, on the face of it, appear to be a highly inappropriate decision in light of their behavior.  After all, this facility which costs virtually nothing to maintain and has volunteers giving services, does belong to the public, not to those who are caretakers of the property for them. The highest, best use of a religious building is religious services.


KMC Management omitted mention of our European Odinist services while at the same time promoting Middle Eastern religious services.  Despite having promised to advertise our Memorial Day Odinist service, as was done automatically with all the Christian Memorial Day services in the past without question, this was not done. In regard to the advertising issue, we still have received no explanation for this outrageous act of anti European bias and not even an apology. Now there  has been advertisement of KMC religious services, Christian ones ONLY, in the National Park itself as well,  despite the park superintendent, Cindy Orlando’s,  express statement that this was NEVER done, in capital letters.

Dear Chaplain Colonel Mueller,


I want to thank you again for your message. I have been hoping that the man you thought could help, Mr. Hart, would contact me, or that the situation would improve, but I am quite distressed at the turn things have taken. The pattern of discrimination and actual harassment  has become even worse since we last communicated several months ago. Mr. Hart has never gotten in touch with me, so I am writing you again in hopes that something can be done.


In the email below, as you can see, our Memorial Day services were not advertised, as every Christian Memorial Day service has been, and as KMC management agreed to do. This last week, I have been asked, yet again, to re-schedule or “cancel” (!) the same service for a Christian event that is not even a religious service when my regular Odinist religious service had previously been scheduled at that time. As a gesture of good will I had complied once with rescheduling this service despite it being very inconvenient. . I was even told at one point  to check every couple weeks to see if I could have my services or not, and I have explained to KMC a number of times how disruptive this is to both me and my congregants, and yet I have continued to receive these requests on a frequent basis.


I also have received a number of telephone calls from both Mr. Swanson and Denise Miller despite my expressly and repeatedly stating, politely, that I prefer to communicate by email.  Christians have never been asked to reschedule their services, or to “check in” to find out if they can have their services or not. There also have been several incidents of disrespectful disruptions during services by HVNP and KMC employees who obviously were sent purposely by management to do so. One woman, wearing a KMC uniform under her jacket, actually conducted an inspection in which she looked behind my altar. Afterwards, a man who identified himself as a park employee, came in during my Rede (sermon), and demanded to know what Odinism was, what my credentials were, and what the symbolism of the rune on a slide was in a manner that can only be described as highly disrespectful. 


At this point, I have no other option but to take this very seriously and I appreciate any help or advice you can give.


Thank you.


With best regards and aloha,


Seana Fenner von Fenneberg

Dear Ms. Bali and Mr. Swanson,


Why has our Odinist Memorial Day Service not been advertised in conjunction with the other Memorial Day events on your flyer as promised? (please see email just below). As I pointed out previously, every single Christian Memorial Day Service has been advertised as part of the Memorial Day events on your flyer, and you agreed to do the same with our Memorial Day service, yet our service is not even listed on the calendar.


The intent would actually seem to be to denigrate and exclude our religion and this seems especially odd since the honoring of those fallen in battle is arguably considered far more important for us than for Christians. Are you aware that this is not equal treatment?


This situation has become very serious. There have been a number of other such incidents, such as openly disrespectful, impolite or insulting emails from KMC employees. For example, Rick Frasier, your web technician, actually ridiculed our religion and the faith of fallen Odinist servicemen, which you are aware of, Mr. Swanson, since this email was copied to you by him. Most recently, I have been asked to reschedule an upcoming service TWICE, or to cancel it,  while Christian ministers have, to my certain knowledge, never once in the entire history of their use of the chapel been asked to do so.


A great deal of time in which our services could have been advertised has been lost already since the month of May is already half over. Is anything going to be done to redress this situation? Thank you.

Dear Ms. Bali,


That sounds like a good idea. Thank you.


One other thing, which I think I mentioned below. Will you be listing and featuring our Memorial Day service as part of your activities, and any other services that fall on holidays, as you always have done with the Christian ones?  We would appreciate it.


Thank you again.


With best regards and aloha,


Seana Fenner



I sent the email below with a CC to you Ms. Orlando, and below this I am including your reply. This was about the, yet again, anti- European and disrespectful and discriminatory behavior of the staff and your reply assured me that there was no discrimination despite the fact that there is, and that you only advertised events that were “sponsored” by the park, which is not the case. I noticed that after this the online park schedule actually went down. It’s rather strange how that happens isn’t it? When one asks for equal advertising, equal treatment and equal access, suddenly online calendars disappear and buildings are closed down.

Subject: RE: FW: Cultural Event for addition to HVNP Calender


Dear Kay Molhoek,


You do advertise cultural events that are held at KMC which are Hawaiian, such as the Hawaiian Cultural Festival and there is no difference, apart from the culture in question being European.


Some of the events you advertise involve chanting on the edge of the crater to Pele and you even have a poster in which a Hawaiian Kapuna talks about the religious sacredness of the Park site, all paid for with governmental funds. Our event is one which includes the opportunity for the public to be handfasted and is free and open to the public and would be of benefit to the public who, after all, owns the park. There is no legal basis or moral justification for the park to embrace and promote one culture and religion and exclude another. It is a federal entity. To do so would be overt anti-European racism.


Presumably Mr. Geiger would have known all the rules for listing events and yet he never indicated that there would be any problem with listing the event on the 30th January 2012, and never replied to my email. I doubt that a Hawaiian religious leader's efforts to share a cultural event would be treated in such and offhand and disrespectful manner.


If anyone wishes to discuss this further you are welcome to telephone me. I hope the park will reconsider this stance. Thank you for your assistance.


Thank you.


With best regards,


Seana Fenner

Aloha Seana,


You appear to have a number of misconceptions about what our web site is for.


First let me tell you that we do not advertise any events in the park that are not NPS sponsered events.  We do provide links to partner sites in which they may have events listed.

Second, our cultural events are NPS programs and not government funded but funded by grants, including the cultural festival at KMC.

Third, a cultural practicioner is NEVER advertised.


Therefore your event appears to be advertised by KMC. Wishing you success.

It would seem that I am not, after all, mistaken about the Park’s “policy” towards advertising religious events, or at least your violation of federal regulations concerning them. Please see attached picture showing a close-up of the official extra large Park event poster prominently displayed outside the front of the HVNP Visitor Center at the present time. You will note that it advertises religious services at KMC not cultural and religious services, not park “sponsored” events, not cultural and religious events, but solely religious Semitic religious services,  ONLY the Christian ones, both Protestant and Catholic are listed, but, yet again, NOT the Odinist services which are conspicuously left out. It even says that the Christian services  are available until October 1st 2012.


You are very well aware of our services, and in fact have been made aware that we wished to have cultural religious events advertised in the past, that is to say events which were not solely religious but which had a cultural component too as can be seen in pasted information from the email  above. I never asked that my solely religious services themselves be advertised, only one particular European cultural and religious festival in which hand-fastings were offered to the public by pre-arrangement free of charge.  I merely requested that this event be  included on your online calendar. I was not replied to on numerous occasions  and when I was, I was treated rudely and then lied to. Now there is open flaunting of unconstitutional discrimination against  those of the European race and faith.



4) What is your explanation for the above, Ms. Orlando? I, the other Odinists and Europeans and the entire community would like to know.
