                             The Presentation on Hawaiian Homes Commission Act, 1920

                                  Awakens the 'uhane Within the Hawaiian Homesteaders

Waimanalo, Hawaii.

Colleen Hanabusa continued her presentation on the Island of Hawaii last weekend and addresses a good size crowd at the DHHL Conference room in Keaukaha.  The event was requested by Panaewa and Keaukaha Hawaiian homesteaders curious about the other presentations made throughout the state and in Hawaiian homestead communities.

"We were very pleased with the turnout at Keaukaha and squeezed everyone that could possibly fit in the room." commented Olinda Fisher, Nanakuli Hawaiian homestead resident who assisted Colleen with her presentation.

Similar to previous community presentations the focus on understanding the Hawaiian Homes Commission Act, 1920 and the proposed rules from the Department of Interior (DOI) were the main focus of the two-hour presentation.  

Although some late attendees may have missed the introduction of the presentation Colleen's answer concerning, "if she's only doing this for a political reason?"..she said, "No, I've been doing this on all the major Hawaiian islands for the benefit of the beneficiaries in making an education and well-informed decision." 

"Colleen continues to be a valued individual who studies and researched the HHCA, its original debates at the time of Prince Kuhio in Congress." added Paul Richards, AINA President.  "Also, Colleen was a workshop speaker at the 2015 Community Development and Finance Conference at Windward Community College and drew a conference room filled of inquiring minds!"
