indigenous poeples of the United
States. Congressional recognition of
this unique attribute has resulted in
the passage and implementation of
Native American programs. Presently,
Native Hawaiians are not consistently
included in these efforts.
Therefore, we recommend:
- the inclusion of Native Hawaiians in all Native American programs, without prejudice;
- a concerted study by federal and state professionals to adequately assess the needs of Native Hawaiians, and to provide additional assistance from existing programs;
- the consideration of special Native Hawaiian programs at the federal level to redress these disadvantages.
