OFFICE OF HAWAIIAN AFFAIRS DOI TESTIMONY IN SUPPORT OF FEDERAL RECOGNITION - fiduciary of the Native Hawaiian trust, OHA’s Board of Trustees has determined that the reestablishment of a government-to-government relationship between the United States and the Native Hawaiian community is the most viable action that could be taken to protect and expand existing trust assets, federal programmatic funding, federal consultation rights and other self-determination rights under federal law. Moreover, as a matter of justice and equity, this opportunity should be available for the Native Hawaiian community to pursue. We should not be denied the basic self-governance rights afforded all other major indigenous groups in the nation. We have suffered through colonization and the dispossession of our lands, resources and culture, and the hearts of our people continue to be burdened by these historic injustices, as recent oral testimony made clear. Our community cannot heal until the federal government shows meaningful ...

May 25, 2014 secretly "reorganizing the Native Hawaiian Community as an Indian Tribe " since 2012 by Andrew Walden Does the Obama administration believe it has the authority to create the Akaka Tribe without Congressional approval?

FORMER OHA TRUSTEE - CRABBE IS RIGHT & OHA IS WRONG - Details Here - a former trustee for the Office of Hawaiian Affairs (1984-96), I commend Kamana`opono Crabbe for doing his fiduciary responsibility and due diligence in the questions raised to Secretary of State John Kerry — questions dealing with our kanaka maoli legal status under international law that should have been raised long ago by OHA trustees. OHA trustees are wrong to be offended by Crabbe’s action, which is necessary for an honest and legal understanding of our Native Hawaiian situation. Last November, OHA unanimously passed a policy stating OHA will only “facilitate” a process toward nation-building — letting us explore all aspects of this journey, including the independence model. If a democracy is to function properly, it is important citizens be fully informed. It stands to reason as part of OHA’s due diligence of nation-building, Crabbe make just such an inquiry to Secretary of State Kerry, for he followed pol ...
Today's Star-Advertiser: A Hawaiian nation? Efforts to establish sovereignty enter its next phase, but some leaders fear Native Hawaiians will give up too much By Vicki Viotti The Native Hawaiian Roll Commission translates Kana'iolowalu, the name of its enrollment project, as a poetic allusion to the act of striving ("na'i"), and to the din of many voices. The commission has all but completed its work, and some of that din is already being heard. The Office of Hawaiian Affairs, immersed in its Native Hawaiian nation-building efforts, erupted late last week in a dramatic conflagration. That's not unusual in the decades-old Hawaiian sovereignty movement, but this time, drama flared in Washington, D.C. That's where several OHA trustees, as well as Chief Executive Officer Kamana'o Crabbe, were meeting federal officials to discuss recent developments. On Friday, OHA released on its website a letter, dated May 5, that Crabbe sent to Secretary of State John Kerry, seeking a legal opinion on the status of Hawaii ...

Our world is changing, and urban planning can lead the way. In an increasingly diverse and globalized world, urban planners work to create communities that are economically thriving, socially just, and environmentally sustainable. A doctoral degree in planning can prepare you to link new knowledge to issues that affect communities and policy-making worldwide. To introduce planning doctoral study to selected outstanding students, the UCLA Luskin School of Public Affairs and the USC Sol Price School of Public Policy, in partnership with the Association of Collegiate Schools of Planning, will host a four-day workshop to prepare students to apply to and succeed in doctoral programs. Students from groups that are under-represented on planning faculties are particularly encouraged to apply. They include: African Americans, Hispanics, Native Americans, and Native Hawaiian and other Pacific Islanders. Workshop events will be held on the UCLA and USC campuses, in the heart of Los Angeles, July 20-24, 2014. Regist ...

CENSUS: Possible changes in choices for Latino respondents By David Olson The Press Enterprise (March 14, 2014) Experimental question combines race and Hispanic ethnicity. The U.S. Census Bureau is discussing whether to change how it asks Americans about their race and ethnicity. The Census Bureau is concerned because a growing percentage of people check "some other race" on the survey forms that are sent to all U.S. households every 10 years. In 2010, more than 6 percent of Americans identified themselves as "some other race." More than 18.5 million of the 19 million people who did so also identified themselves as Hispanic or Latino. That indicates that Hispanics were unsure which box to check under "race." The census form indicated that "Hispanic origins are not races."

National Institute for Latino Policy 3/15/14 U.S. Census looking at big changes in how it asks about race and ethnicity By Jens Manuel Krogstad and D'vera Cohn Pew Research Center (March 14, 2014) The Census Bureau has embarked on a years-long research project intended to improve the accuracy and reliability of its race and ethnicity data. A problem is that a growing percentage of Americans don't select a race category provided on the form: As many as 6.2% of census respondents selected only "some other race" in the 2010 census, the vast majority of whom were Hispanic. Six percent may seem small, but for an agency trying to capture the entire U.S. population (nearly 309 million in 2010) every 10 years, that number results in millions of people unaccounted for. This pattern of response led to the bureau's "most comprehensive effort in history to study race and ethnic categories," according to Census officials Nicholas Jones and Roberto Ramirez. "Increasingly, Americans are saying they cannot find themselve ...

Everything thinks I'm Hawaiian or Native...I'll take it.
Yesterday the highlight was a four-hour mini circle tour of the southwestern part of Oahu. Our driver and guide was a phenomenal native Hawaiian named something like Luana, and she knows EVERYTHING about all the places, plants, people and history of the area since she grew up here. Here are some photos of the beyond beautiful sites where we stopped for photo ops. Today our entire tour group of 28 goes to Pearl Harbor, the Arizona memorial, etc. Oh, did you know there are wild chickens all over the Island? Dave Dagenais, you would go crazy over the paddleboarders, surfers, body surfers and other extreme sports enthusiasts on and around the ocean.
"you sorta look Hawaiian" if you notice Native Americans and Hawaiians look kind of alike.
At some point all Hawaii residents, Hawaiian and non-Hawaiian alike, are going to have to think hard about Hawaiian issues and Hawaiian rights. Either you support resolving Hawaiian rights claims and the Hawaiian community or you don't. At the end of the day, everything special about this place is due in large part to the culture and contributions of Native Hawaiians. It's time to make real decisions about honoring and respecting that history. There is no Hawaii without Hawaiians.

Diabetes Goal & Over view: Goal: Reduce the disease and economic burden of diabetes mellitus (DM) and improve the quality of life for all persons who have, or are at risk for, DM. Overview: DM occurs when the body cannot produce or respond appropriately to insulin. Insulin is a hormone that the body needs to absorb and use glucose (sugar) as fuel for the body’s cells. Without a properly functioning insulin signaling system, blood glucose levels become elevated and other metabolic abnormalities occur, leading to the development of serious, disabling complications. Many forms of diabetes exist. The 3 common types of DM are: Type 2 diabetes, which results from a combination of resistance to the action of insulin and insufficient insulin production. Type 1 diabetes, which results when the body loses its ability to produce insulin. Gestational diabetes, a common complication of pregnancy. Gestational diabetes can lead to perinatal complications in mother and child and substantially increases the likelihood o ...

Tyrone was a great minister and spent his last years in faithful service to his Lord with Imiola Church in Waimea, served as a volunteer with Hospice and was a volunteer chaplain at North Hawaii Community Hospital. He was active with the Waimea Hawaii Civic club, the Imiola Prayer group and in support of the local community schools. He helped Native Hawaiians tie their christian beliefs and native hawaiian beliefs together so that they could live in harmony with both. He was a great and loving servant to his Lord.
Didn't like that movie, to be honest. Nothing you say can make me believe George Clooney is a native Hawaiian

In the past 2 weeks I've been mistaken for Asian, Hawaiian, White, and Native American. Really people?
Was given the honor of going to an all Hawaiian high school function that enacted part of their history. Very few Halole's as white people are called by the Native Hawaiians get the privilege of seeing these school enactments. I greatly respect the Hawaiian culture and the people here, it was wonderful.

To all my friends in the Phoenix area -- my dear husband is opening his practice and is offering a New Client special for the next month. He is a Native Hawaiian healer and does a very ancient form of Lomi Lomi blended with training he received when he worked with Maori elders in New Zealand. He has an extraordinary gift that leaves most people speechless when they try to describe what he does. But suffice to say, he can help you clear and root out core issue and trauma from deeply entrenched sub-conscious patterning that holds us back from being the full expression of our Divine Self. His ability to ground and stabilize energy in the physical form is unparalleled. His work is stunning and I encourage anyone in the area who is truly ready for a shift to work with him. Your life won't be the same; I promise. You can message him on FB at to set up an appointment or post here and I will have him contact you. You'll be so happy you did!

Aloha kakou! Most of you have probably heard by now the issue that is at stake involving our children's education here in Hawai'i. If we can all take some time out of our busy day and write a letter to the Board of Education regarding PONO. The time is now as the hearing's deadline for testimony is literally hours away. There are solid points to address that can be found within the content of the recent email on this subject assumed to have been delivered to all members. As a Native Hawaiian, I feel saddened and disappointed that the curriculum developers have chosen an acronym/word that means goodness, excellence, morality and righteous. Let's all stand for the sanctity of our children, and in essence, our FAMILY. boe_hawaii
