Native Hawaiian Law: A Treatise, discusses and analyzes the critical events, cases, statutes, regulations, and actions that form and give substance to a body of law affecting Kānaka Maoli, the Native Hawaiian people. This highly anticipated follow-up to the 1991 Native Hawaiian Rights Handbook covers a number of important topics including:
- Native Hawaiians and U.S. Law
- The Public Land Trust
- Water Rights
- Traditional and Customary Access and
- The Hawaiian Homes Commission Act
- Judicial Methods for Securing Land Title
- Native Hawaiian Health
- Hawaiian Language and Education
- and much more.
Each chapter in this treatise was written by or under the supervision of an attorney, often a leading expert in the field, and comprises the accumulated work and knowledge of many people. The breadth and depth of Native Hawaiian Law offers new pathways for further research and analysis of critical legal issues facing the Native Hawaiian community today.
