Historic places and names carry memory of generations and to erase them coward act of making fake history. The nation that forget its history will not have future either.

Russia was invited by the Aliʻi ʻAimoku of Kauaʻi and Niʻihau to build a fort on his island as a last-ditch effort to preserve his kingdom from the imperialist efforts of Hawai'ian unification by King Kamehameha. The effort to 'decolonise' Russian Fort Elizabeth by officially mandating the name Paʻulaʻula o Hipo is, ironically, erasing the anti-imperialist history of the site and Island of Kaua'i. My suggestion would be to perhaps attach the name Paʻulaʻula o Hipo to the official name of Russian Fort Elisabeth, perhaps making it something like: Russian Fort Elisabeth at Paʻulaʻula o Hipo by which a well-rounded preservation of local and native history can be achieved.
