Personal statement:
Aloha kākou. I am Raul Nohea Goodness, and i ask to be your delegate from outside Hawaii. My concern is for Hawaiian Unity. The divisive elements before us today are Act 195, Kanaʻiolowalu, and the US Dept. of Interior rules for Federal Recognition as a government within a government entity. -Kanaʻiolowalu and Naʻi Aupuni exclude and alienate many Hawaiians from participating. To be legitimate, we need the full independent lāhui. -Practically, it is a bad idea to rush to US Federal Recognition. I see no benefit over the current Federal law regarding Native Hawaiians, and we risk surrender of claims since the overthrow. -If those goals cannot be met, i will vote against creating a constitution. I am only entering this process because of my concerns for Hawaiian unity, and we, like all others, demand full prior informed consent. So many of us have lived years on the mainland, and we find ourselves the malahini—in America! Our true roots are in Hawaiian culture, so we need to support the independent spirit, those asserting kuleana rights, and practitioners.
