Hawaii Gov Neil Abercrombie signs SB1520, the Native Hawaiian Recognition Bill, recognizing Native Hawaiian people as "the only indigenous, aboriginal, maoli people of Hawai’i
We thought we’d re-broadcast this video clip right about now since it’s election season and we’d like to reprieve a few clips we think are interesting. SB1520 was signed by Hawaii Governor Neil Abercrombie. This historic bill recognizes the Native Hawaiian people as the “only indigenous, aboriginal, maoli people of Hawaii”. This action works in concert with a future Hawaii Congressional push toward federal recognition of Native Hawaiians and the pending dissolution of Office of Hawaiian Affairs and creation of a new entity that will represent the Native people of Hawaii. Congratulations to the Hawaii Maoli who worked on this legislation.
We welcome your comments.
