THE NATIVE HAWAIIAN CONSTITUTION & RATIFICATION

Members of the Ko’olaupoko Hawaiian Civic Club participated in the ‘Aha 2016 Hawaiian Constitutional Convention, at the invitation of Na’i Aupuni.  We are pleased that the ‘Aha completed its draft of a Constitution and Declaration for the Native Hawaiian Nation.

Besides a continuation of Native Hawaiian efforts toward self-determination and declaration of sovereignty, preparations are underway for a ratification of the Constitution by the Hawaiian people.

Those already registered to vote under the Native Hawaiian Roll, aka Kana’iolowalu, would be able to vote on the ratification. Other mechanisms are being pursued to allow Hawaiians registered and validated in other ways to enable them to vote.

If you are a descendant of the indigenous people who resided in the islands prior to 1778, you would be eligible to vote. Kana’iolowalu continues to register voters; you can register online at www.kanaiolowalu.org.
