Grassroot Institute of Hawai’i and Rowena Akana

Grassroot Institute of Hawai’i and Rowena Akana

In this video Rowena Akana says that Grassroot Institute of Hawai’i is “racist” because they call her racist.

 

Actually Grassroot Institute of Hawai’i is lead by CEO and President Keli’i Akina PhD who is a fellow Kamehameha Schools’ graduate. The Grassroot Institute of Hawai’i opposes Federal Wreck Cognition (so do we) which is great… though they oppose it for the wrong reasons.

 

 

 

In this video you can see and hear some of the beneficiaries hollering from the audience. As OHA trustee, Rowena Akana has a fiduciary duty to listen to these beneficiaries which she does not do. Instead she speaks venomously towards them.

 

We do not endorse her for Office of Hawaiian Affairs trustee.
