Community Forum Events in 2014

In 2014, a monthly series of public forums and ‘Ōlelo television broadcasts helped build public awareness and create a better understanding among both Hawaiians and non-Hawaiians about what the sovereignty movement means for all the people of Hawaii.

Hawaiian sovereignty will affect everybody in the state. The series was timed to precede the Native Hawaiian convention to organize a modern Hawaiian government.
