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.
