I think OHA is a sham. It is just an extension of cronyism in Hawaii. Exclusive contracts and deals that arent serving their mission but serving board members. Sad. The last bit of news was some grand standing by Lei Ahu Isa of how she left an accident and threw down her "Im an OHA trustee" card. These people think they are above the people when they are servants of the people. Act like it.
OHA is a disgrace for all Native Hawaiians.
OHA is nothing more than a money broker that takes US federal dollars and hands much of it to questionable organizations, whose initiatives do not necessarily serve for the betterment of Native Hawaiians. The fact that Native Hawaiians are still on the bottom rung of every major socio-economic measure in Hawaii is empirical evidence of OHA's failure since its creation.
Native Hawaiians should not place their faith and well-being in OHA or any US assistance, but work towards restoring their illegally occupied nation and gain self-sufficiency by their own means.
