Akaka Bill Preview: Tribes Boot Members Keep Loot
By Andrew Walden @ 12:12 AM :: 34613 Views :: Akaka Bill

“From San Diego to Clear Lake, 57 tribes are cashing in on the annual $7.7 billion California Indian gambling boom, and some are throwing out many of their own members - all, critics say, so those remaining can pocket more cash. In many cases, that amounts to monthly allowances of up to $30,000 per person."

SHOCK: Lingle, Bennett denounce new version Akaka Bill (full text)
By News Release @ 5:53 PM :: 10410 Views :: Akaka Bill

These changes, taken together, change the bill from one where the status quo and the relations between the United States, the State of Hawaii, and the Native Hawaiian governing entity can be changed only after negotiations and after passage of implementing legislation, to a model in which the status quo immediately changes, pursuant to an Indian law model.

Meheula memo questions Ed Case's record on Hawaiian entitlements
By Andrew Walden @ 5:19 PM :: 10869 Views :: Akaka Bill, Hawaii History, OHA, Politicians

Meheula’s memo says: “In the late 1990s, when Ed Case was chairman of the State House Committee on Hawaiian Affairs, he repeatedly acted to reduce Native Hawaiian benefits, rights and revenues…. In the 1998 legislative session, Mr. Case proposed the 123-page ‘Native Hawaiian Autonomy Act.’ The Act would have terminated OHA and the Hawaiian Home Lands program, denied Native Hawaiians the right to self-determination and federal recognition, and reduced State liabilities to Native Hawaiians. The Act stated that its purpose is to stop the ‘continued dependence by native Hawaiians on others which prevents the development of the full potential of the native Hawaiian people.’”

Aiona: Volunteers raise $400,000 for Hawaii Fire Department
By Lt Gov Duke Aiona @ 2:16 PM :: 6925 Views :: Hawaii County , Akaka Bill, Energy, Environment

Dr. Frank Sayre and Laura Mallery-Sayre experienced first-hand the heroism of the Hawai‘i Fire Department when they lost their son in a hiking accident in Polulu Valley.  The Hawai‘i Fire Department did not have rappelling ropes long enough to reach the bottom of the valley, so firefighters flew a helicopter into the narrow terrain at great personal risk.

Since then, Frank and Laura, motivated by the bravery and heroism of the firefighters, began the Daniel Sayre Foundation to raise money to buy equipment for the Hawai‘i Fire Department. Their efforts have been met with resounding success in the community, as they have raised more than $400,000 to provide essential life-saving equipment and training for our firefighters.

Maui County Council joining "Reinstated Hawaiian Kingdom?"
By Andrew Walden @ 12:30 AM :: 21320 Views :: Akaka Bill, Maui County, OHA

Baisa's motion is not mere symbolism.  Section Nine of the proposed ordinance reads:

"The transition of the County of Maui from the jurisdiction of the United States to the reinstated Kingdom of Hawaii will occur over a term of four years, having commenced on February 1, 2009.  All county officials and employees shall retain their positions during this transition period."

Supreme Court ruling shields Hawaiian Homelands and ceded lands revenue
By Andrew Walden @ 1:56 PM :: 16057 Views :: Akaka Bill, DHHL, OHA

The high court’s reading of legal precedent gives special protection to a state’s Admission Act. And in the case of Hawaii this means special protection for Hawaiian Homelands and the designation of ceded lands revenues for five specific purposes. The high court thus undermines two of the three key public arguments for the Akaka Bill.
