> Summary: The native Hawaiians want to be recognized as a tribe so they can have casinos on Waikiki.

Fair enough, they probably should be recognized as a tribe. If they are anything like their Maori cousins they should be able to accurately recite their oral tribal history going back for many centuries.

Now as to whether they should get casinos...

“Because of OHA’s action in the Leiali`i-Laiopua case, affordable housing in Kona and West Maui has not been built. The native Hawaiians OHA purports to represent suffer because of its actions. Yet the Hawai`i Supreme Court falsely equates a settlement with OHA to a settlement with native Hawaiians. They are in fact opposites.”
