Hawaiian Soverignty

http://www.freehawaii.org - Free Hawaii. This web site contains an excellent FAQ, written from the perspective of the web site owner, a Native Hawaiian. In it, he gives excellent public opinion on the sovereignty movement. Although the author does not attempt to address the issue equally, it is good web site for learning why Native Hawaiians are so passionate about gaining an independent Hawaii.

http://www.hawaii-nation.org. - Hawaii: Independent and Sovereign. This site contains a very easy to read, basic history of Hawaii. It also contains a page where it lays out many books about Hawaii, its history, and its struggle for independence.

http://www.hawaiimatters.com - Hawaii Matters. The website contains, on line, the book Hawaiian Sovereignty: Do the Facts Matter?, an excellent source of the issues concerning sovereignty.

http://www.opihi.com/sovereignty - Hawaiian Sovereignty.
This website contains an organized listing of the various issues concerning Native Hawaiian sovereignty. While it is not the best- looking web site, the information it contains is useful, and the it is organized in a way that it is easy to find what information you are looking for.

http://www.traditionalvalues.org/modules.php?sid=2415 - Native Hawaiian Act Must Be Defeated. It is important when researching an issue to discover the other’s side argument, and this website allows you to do just that. Included on the site is also the complete conference held on Native Hawaiians sovereignty, which you can view on your computer.

http://www.oha.org - Office of Hawaiian Affairs. This a key office in determining Native Hawaiian affairs, and the web site contains important information regarding who defined as Native Hawaiian, and what exactly the office does for Native Hawaiians.

http://www.geocities.com/CapitolHill/Lobby/4478 - The Anti- Hawaiian Sovereignty Page. This is another page, very simply laid out, that addresses the question of why Native Hawaiians sovereignty should not occur. While it is very crudely organized, it is an interesting look at the critic’s view of Native Hawaiian sovereignty.
