This bill would allow "Native Hawaiians," defined as anyone with any percentage of Native Hawaiian blood, to form their own Native government in Hawaii that would treated like an Indian tribe. Approximately 1/5 of the people in Hawaii have some percentage of Hawaiian blood, as well as hundreds of thousands of people on the Mainland who would now be subject to this new nation. The new Native Hawaiian Governing Entity would be the largest "Indian Tribe" in the country
This would also open the door to Mexican-Americans to demand the same "national" recognition, based on their history as "indigenous" people of the American Southwest and California and "forcible loss" of their lands as a result of the Mexican-American war.
For further backround on this attempt to racialize Hawaii, read the following columns by Michelle Malkin:
“The Worst Bill You’ve Never Heard Of”
“Apartheid in Hawaii”
“Apartheid for Native Hawaiians”
I think we could pretty much disqualify any Mexican irrespective of the blood quanta.
