Hawaiian Sovereignty (10/4/00)
Date of this Version
A bill to federally recognize Native Hawaiians has just passed the House, but the Hawaiian sovereignty movement is split on the issue. Some fear that federal recognition of Native Hawaiians will lead to a trust relationship with the U.S. They argue that Hawaii will turn into nothing more than an island reservation. Others say that federal recognition will actually protect a portion of their land base and provide much needed program dollars. Guests include Hawaiian sovereignty activist Dr. Kekuni Blaisedale.
