|The U.S. owes Hawaiians millions of dollars worth of land. Congress helped make sure the debt wasn’t paid.
In the 1990s, U.S. Sens. Daniel Inouye and Daniel Akaka led efforts to ensure that the U.S. compensated Native Hawaiians for ancestral lands taken from them. But an investigation has found that those same senators voted on legislation that undermined efforts to repay the land debt. Honolulu Star-Advertiser.
The investigation also found that the U.S. government over the past decade has transferred nearly 40 parcels of land in Hawai‘i to private parties, bypassing a process that gives Hawaiians priority access. Honolulu Star-Advertiser.
