To enhance the well-being of Hawaii through the cultural, economic, political and community development of Native Hawaiians.
We envision a socially and economically sustainable Hawaiian community empowered through self-governance.
CNHA was founded in 2001 by four Native Hawaiian Organizations and two individual members. The small group envisioned the work we remain dedicated to to today:
- Department of Hawaiian Homelands
- Papa Ola Lokahi
- ALU LIKE, Inc.
Tara Lulani Arquette
- Native Hawaiian Legal Corporation
- Robin Puanani Danner
- Melody MacKenzie
