Kāko‘o: DOI rule to strengthen lāhui opportunities

We are happy to provide helpful tools that we can use to garner support for a longstanding, crucial lāhui goal: Establishing an option for a Native Hawaiian government to achieve a government-to-government relationship with the U.S.

Our website allows you to effortlessly submit a preloaded supportive comment to the DOI. This is the easiest and fastest way to make your support for Native Hawaiian self-determination known, and it’s an action you can take right now. To get started, please visit oha.org/DOI.

However, if you are able to take the extra time to generate your own comments, we’d like to suggest that you wait to see our OHA comment that will be posted when it is prepared. A summary highlighting the key points in the OHA comment will also be provided, which we hope will be helpful as you write your own comments.

Please encourage your ‘ohana and friends to submit supportive comments to the DOI by December 30, 2015.

The regulations.gov docket will close to comments on December 30, 2015.  Comments submitted by other means must also be received on or before December 30, 2015.
