Hawaiian Homes Commissioners, KSBE Trustees and OHA Trustee not on Kanaiolowalu Roll

After burning millions of OHA dollars, and only in response to a lawsuit from the Grassroot Institute, the Native Hawaiian Roll Commission in mid July finally released an uncertified version of the so-called Native Hawaiian Roll.  This was followed a week later by release of a "certified" version of the same roll--down to 95,690 after 27,470 "uncertifiable" names were stripped out.

95,690 is about 18% of the 527,077 Native Hawaiians counted by the 2010 US Census.  82% of Native Hawaiians are not participating--including many in positions of leadership.

DHHL Chair Jobie Masagatani, is not on the list.  Neither are Hawaiian Homes Commissioners Michael P Kahikina (Oahu), Gene Ross Davis (Molokai), and David B. Ka’apu (West Hawaii). 

Current KSBE CEO, Livingston “Jack” Wong, retired KSBE CEO Dee-Jay Mailer, and four of five KSBE Trustees do not appear on the Roll: Micah Kane, Robert KWH Nobriga, Janeen-Ann Ahulani Olds, and Lance Keawe Wilhelm.  The only KSBE Trustee registered is Corbett A.K. Kalama.

Of the nine OHA Trustees, only Dan C Ahuna III, is not on the roll.  Trustee Lei Ahu Isa is on the roll but in a Facebook post July 24 she responds to the release of the Roll with:

"This is why I introduced a bill in the Legislature to REPEAL Act 195! Already found two people on this who have passed away 23 years ago! RIP!"

UPDATE: In a FB message Sunday Aug. 2, Lei Ahu Isa explains: "My name is on The K list cuz they took Kau Inoa list and combined it in K list! I signed up for Kau Inoa and my Card says 'expires in 2013'! So I guess they just took it and included it in K list."

OHA CEO Kamanaopono Crabbe--author if the Kerry letter--is on the roll, but his alleged ghost writer, David Keanu Sai, is not.

Former OHA Trustees Moanikeala Akaka and Mililani Trask and her sister Haunani Trask are not on the roll. 

Shakedown artists Walter Ritte and Dennis Keiki 'Bumpy' Kanahele urged Hawaiians to sign up prior to last years Interior Department hearings--and apparently they both signed up as well.

Of the advisory board for the UH Richardson Center for Native Hawaiian Law, only Jonathan Osorio and retired KSBE CEO Dee-Jay Mailer are not on the list.

Unsurprisingly, Robin and Jade Danner and Michelle Kauhane--nemesis of Jobie Masagatani--are all on the list.

Abigail Kinoiki Kekaulike Kawananakoa is not on the list, but Quentin Kawananakoa is.

Republican gubernatorial nominee James Richard 'Duke' Aiona, Jr is on the list, his 2014 running mate Elwin Ahu is not.  Elwin Ahu is the brother of Lei Ahu Isa.

Politicians Malama Solomon, Faye Hanohano, Billy Kenoi, and Clayton Hee are all on the Roll.  Clayton's brother Al Hee is also, but he may soon have to change his voting address to a federal penitentiary.
