Reconciliation at a Crossroads: The Implications of the Apology Resolution and "Rice v. Cayetano" for Federal and State Programs Benefiting Native Hawaiians. Summary Report of the August 1998 and September 2000 Community Forums in Honolulu, Hawai'i.
Pilla, Thomas V.
This report focuses on a 1998 community forum that examined the impact of the 1993 Apology Resolution enacted to recognize the 1893 overthrow of the Hawaiian monarchy, subsequent meetings in 2000 with Na Kupuna (Hawaiian elders), and a 2000 community forum to collect information on concerns of Native Hawaiians and others regarding the impact of the U.S. Supreme Court decision in Rice v. Cayetano on Native Hawaiians. Seven sections include: "Introduction and Background" (social cohesion and conflict; cultural identity); "The Past That Haunts: A History of Hawaiian Annexation" (political and cultural transformation; international domination and overthrow); "Hawai'i Today: Diversity and Disparity" (Hawaiian ethnicity, demographics, and socioeconomics); "The Path to Reconciliation and Reparation" (legislative attempts and determining the parameters of reconciliation); "Reconciliation at a Crossroads: Implications of the Rice Decision" (the Native Hawaiian vote and public comment on the Supreme Court's decision); "Recognition Legislation before Congress: A Safe Harbor?"; and "Conclusions and Recommendations" (the federal government should accelerate efforts to formalize political relationships between Native Hawaiians and the United States, and state and federal funding to improve the conditions of Native Hawaiians should be increased). A list of forum panelists is appended. (SM)
