Sign the “I Have Chosen NOT to Register with Kana‘iolowalu” Petitition

Kanaiolowalu

Kanaiolowalu

Petition Created By

Trisha Kehaulani Watson, J.D. PhD.

 

Petition Background

OHA has begun defunding Native Hawaiian health and education programs, while continuing to provide millions of beneficiary funds for Kana‘iolowalu. Despite millions spent on advertising and outreach, less than 4% of Native Hawaiians have voluntarily signed up for the Roll. Sign this petition to send a clear message to the Trustees that our top priorities are education and health.

Petitition Statement

I am Kanaka Maoli (Native Hawaiian) and I have chosen not to register with Kana‘iolowalu (the Native Hawaiian Roll). My decision in no way diminishes my inherent rights as a Native Hawaiian or the rights of my descendants. I ask the Office of Hawaiian Affairs to immediately cease funding of Kana‘iolowalu and instead restore funding to Native Hawaiian health and education programs.

To be delivered to: Office of Hawaiian Affairs, Board of Trustees

Kanaiolowalu is Hewa

Mahalo to Anahola Defenders for bringing this to our attention.

Kanaiolowalu is Hewa

Kanaiolowalu is Hewa

 
Office of Hawaiian Affairs (OHA) is reportedly considering giving Kanaiolowalu an additional $1.8 million at 9:30 on Thursday, then a half hour later at the 10 am meeting, they are looking to cut the Nā Pua No‘eau budget from $1.2 million to $327,758.

OHA is literally taking funding away from critical programs for our keiki to fund a political campaign that less than 4% of Hawaiians have signed up for in their year of operation (which cost over $3 million so far).”

Instead of giving money to young Hawaiians to use for their education and/or to finish their undergraduate or graduate degrees they are wasting trust monies which is OUR money.
