On January 14, 2016, the Native Hawaiian Education Council held its first Native Hawaiian Legislative Summit at the University of Hawaiʻi-West Oʻahu. The Summit was intended to provide an opportunity for key Native Hawaiian organization to share their State and Federal priorities (particularly those focused on education) for the 2016 legislative session, as well as provide an opportunity for State and Federal legislators to share their policy priorities and hear directly from constituents. Below are a number of items that have resulted from the Summit as well as other informative documents that the Council has produced.
We mahalo everyone that participated in the Summit, for the manaʻo that was shared, and for everyone’s continued support and advocacy of Native Hawaiian education for our families and communities. We hope to continue convening this type of event and commit to modifying the event based on feedback received.
