OHA Finally Gets Around to Announcing Roll Reopening--Takes Aim at Hawaiian Registry Program

OHA renewing efforts to boost participation in Hawaiian nation building

News Release from OHA

HONOLULU (Sept. 3, 2014) – In concert with the Native Hawaiian Roll Commission reopening its Official Roll, the Office of Hawaiian Affairs is renewing its focus on widening Native Hawaiian participation in the nation-building process.

A previous April 2014 drive added an estimated 10,000 participants who signed up for the Official Native Hawaiian Roll after its deadline was extended to May 1.

Among the contributing factors to this success were the 20 town hall-style meetings OHA held statewide as well as the volunteers it enlisted to canvass Hawaiian homestead communities.

To accommodate as many Native Hawaiians as possible, the Roll Commission will focus on online registrations, and the Hawaiian Registry Program will focus on in-person registrations.

OHA’s Hawaiian Registry Program provides ancestry verification required for applicants of OHA resources such as loans and college scholarships.

All names on OHA’s Hawaiian Registry Program are allowed by law to be added to the Native Hawaiian Roll Commission’s Official Roll of participants for the nation-building process.

The renewed efforts come less than a month after OHA trustees extended by six months the timetable for the nation-building process they previously committed to facilitate, allowing more time for registration and education to ensure meaningful Hawaiian community participation in the nation-building process.

Native Hawaiians interested in registering with the Hawaiian Registry Program can do so at any of OHA’s seven offices in Hawai‘i:
