Should OHA be allowed to build residential units in Kakaako Makai?
I feel there are better avenues to perpetuate the revenue stream for Hawaiians … not only building high-rises on ocean front properties. This is OHA’s chance to partner with billionaires globally who want to come and help our Native Hawaiians to develop and restore our kingdom. OHA has valuable lands.
Should Native Hawaiians seek federal recognition?
A spokeswoman for the U.S. Interior Department said it is “considering publishing an Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking to help determine whether the department should develop a formal, administrative process to re-establish a govt.-to-govt. with a future Native Hawaiian governing entity.” This “entity” is the “Kingdom of Hawaii,” which will have the authority.
