I believe in the process of Native Hawaiian self determination and that the best path forward is for all of us to come together in an 'aha to decide these issues. I am experienced in both law and policy issues as relates to the indigenous people domiciled within the confines of the United States having worked as a trial and appellate judge for sovereign Indian tribes in Washington State and Oregon, as the former chair of the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act Commission, as Senior Counsel to the US Senate Committee on Indian Affairs, as the director of Hawaiian Rights at the Office of Hawaiian Affairs, as the executive director of the Native Hawaiian Education Council, as the executive director of the National Indian Education Association, as a national expert on the impact of climate change on indigenous communities, and as a national expert on preventing and ending homelessness within our community. My work and involvement on these issues in venues across the United States and in Hawaii has broadened my understanding of how to craft solutions, remedies, and structures that work and which improve the well being of the Native Hawaiian community in the process.
