These goals may seem too radical to some.
And there will be those who say the of goal of a Native Hawaiian Corporation controlled by shareholders cannot be achieved.
It would take a re-writing of the State Constitution.
And, an act of Congress to change native Hawaiian assets and status.
But can’t be done?
Of course it can be done should a majority of those of native Hawaiian ancestry choose to do so.
The approach of a for profit corporation using best practices to develop Hawaiian assets for the benefit of, and by the direction of, its shareholders should be welcomed by both Hawaiian’s and non native Hawaiian alike.
As decedents of trans oceanic mariners, charting a new course is both natural and familiar and should never be considered “too difficult”.
I believe Hawaiians have the will, stamina and courage to achieve a better future for themselves and their families.
