OHA pushes for governing entity

The Office of Hawaiian Affairs is pushing Native Hawaiians to have a voice.

OHA said on Thursday that it wants Native Hawaiians to build a governing entity and it will help facilitate the process.

“What we want native hawaiians to understand is that it is ok to participate in a political process that determines our own destiny,” Office of Hawaiian Affairs CEO Kamanaopono Crabbe said.

“For me is thrilling and great because I’ve been trying to move along here. We still have to get the federal government the government relationship that we seek,” former U.S. Senator Daniel Akaka said.

OHA asked the Native Hawaiian Roll Commission to re-open the roll to let those who have not signed up yet to be part of the process.
