Since July, thousands of people on Hawaii's Big Island have blocked a road to prevent construction of a Thirty Meter Telescope on Mauna Kea, the tallest mountain in the world from peak to sea floor and a sacred site for Native Hawaiians.
#Hawaii consistently has one of the lowest voter turnouts in the country - Many Native Hawaiians don’t vote out of protest of the U.S. overthrow of the Hawaiian monarchy. But now, they’re motivated by #MaunaKea demonstrations to register for the first time @KITV4 @hehawaiiau
On Saturday, @SmithsonianNMAI broke ground on the #NativeAmericanVeterans Memorial. When dedicated in Nov. 2020, it will be Washington's first national landmark honoring the military service of American Indians, Alaska Natives and Native Hawaiians. #NNAVM
Native Hawaiians are fighting to protect a dormant volcano they see as a place of worship. But astronomers and scientists value the spot
In 1999, Judge Kavanaugh wrote an op-ed and amicus brief that disparaged the Native Hawaiian community. He wrongly asserts that Native Hawaiians are not an indigenous community. I won't let that stand. #StopKavanaugh
Native Hawaiians view their island as an occupied country, not as a U.S. state.
Zuckerberg "bought 700 acres of beachfront land in my home state of Hawaii. He built a wall around the property and then tried to force hundreds of Native Hawaiians to forfeit their gathering rights to the land by suing them."
. came together to say that Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation would be dangerous to indigenous communities. Today, I broke down his long history of working to curtail the rights of Native Hawaiians, Alaska Natives, & American Indians.
The American people deserve to know the full extent of Brett Kavanaugh's lies regarding indigenous communities. That's why I made a motion to subpoena any additional records relating to his work on Native Hawaiians, Native Americans, and Alaska Natives. #WhatAreTheyHiding
Last night, Judge Kavanaugh once again misstated the facts on Rice v Cayetano and the rights of Native Hawaiians. It's disturbing that any judge, much less a nominee to the Supreme Court, would manipulate the facts to reach his own political conclusions.
