HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The debate over whether native Hawaiians should fight for sovereignty or federal recognition continues across the islands of Hawaii.
Recently the Federal government announced that it was looking into reestablishing a government to government relationship with the native Hawaiian community, and the Honolulu Star Advertiser reports that supporters from both sides have been out in full force across the state.
The Federal government have been holding meetings asking native Hawaiians for their input regarding whether a rule should be made that would establish a way forward to have a government to government relationship.
The next public hearing is scheduled for July 1st at 6 p.m. at Kapa'a elementary school on Kauai.
President and CEO of the Council for Native Hawaiian Advancement Michelle Kauhane joined Steve Uyehara on Sunrise to tell us more.
