Native Hawaiian issues

Grassroot Instititute is deeply committed to the advancement of Native Hawaiians along with all people in the State of Hawaii. We are concerned that the State of Hawaii's efforts to form and gain federal recognition of a race-based, sovereign nation are not in the best interest of Native Hawaiians nor the general population. Grassroot Institute will continue to advocate for the good of all people in Hawaii as we respond to efforts to use state agencies such as the Office of Hawaiian Affairs to concentrate unwarranted power and resources in the hands of a few.
