Description
 
Andre S. Tatibouet (ed.). Determines the extent to which both the Fed. Govít. & the State of Hawaii are meeting their trust obligations to Native Hawaiians under the Hawaiian Homes Comm. Act of 1921. This law set aside approx. 200,000 acres as a land trust for homesteading by Native Hawaiians. Primary admin. responsibilities were transferred to the State of Hawaii upon admission to the Union in 1959. But the F ed. Govt. retains oversight responsibilities, including the exclusive right to sue for breach of trust.

Only 17% of the total available lands are being homesteaded, while over 62% of the lands are being used by non-natives, often for minimal comp.
