In 1993, the U.S., through Public Law 103-150 acknowledged that the Hawaiian people never gave up their rights to their national lands(aka “ceded lands”) to the U.S. government.
Now, the U.S. Department of Interior (DOI) proposed rule would unethically terminate Native Hawaiian rights to millions of acres of HAWAIIAN ‘ĀINA.
The U.S. Department of Interior (DOI) is proposing to re-establish a formal government-to-government relationship with the Native Hawaiian community that will not affect the title, jurisdiction, or status of Federal lands and property in Hawaii. In effect, the U.S. would continue to control nearly 900,000 acres of land in the main Hawaiian Islands and over 88 million acres of the Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument. The absence of any reference to Hawaiian lands controlled by the State of Hawai`i in the proposed rule is of grave concern. With this much at stake, we must submit testimony in opposition to the DOI’s proposed rule before December 30.
