As a Hawaiian I can trace my genealogy back 100 generations, and I descend from the lineages of Piʻilani of Maui, ʻI and Keawe of Hawaiʻi, Kukaniloko of Oʻahu, and Kahakumakaliua of Kauaʻi.
I graduated from Kamehameha in 1970, and have a BA in Hawaiian Language & Studies , MA in Pacific Island Studies , and a PhD in Hawaiian and Pacific History  all from UH Mānoa.
Currently, I am the Director & Senior Professor of the Kamakakuokalani Center for Hawaiian Studies at UH Manoa where I have taught for the past 30 years, empowering the nation through education.
No arrests unfortunately!
I envision a nation that controls land for Hawaiians to live upon forever! So I am excited about helping write a constitution for our nation. As a citizen & former elected representative of Ka Lahui Hawaiʻi, I have participated in 2 concons, and helped write the current Ka Lahui Hawaiʻi constitution and the Hoʻokupu Master plan. See & < https://kalahuihawaii.files.wordpress.com/2009/10/master-plan.pdf>. These materials, while perhaps imperfect, are certainly food for thought for all delegates to consider.
