Keli`i Akina Launches Campaign for Office of Hawaiian Affairs Trustee-at-Large

Dr. Akina, who garnered approximately 93,000 votes in his 2014 bid for OHA Trustee-at-large is slated to be the leading challenger to the incumbent in the race.

Akina says,  “The people of Hawaii know it`s time to reform OHA. We have to preserve the Aloha Spirit, equally advancing the interests of both native Hawaiians and all people in unity.”

Dr. Akina has been the major voice in calling for OHA to stop wasting millions of dollars on the creation of a federally recognized race-based nation, something which most native Hawaiians and all residents don`t want.  Instead, Akina states, “OHA should spend its public funds on housing, jobs, education, and health care for those in need, rather than squandering it on a failed political agenda.”

Akina is the President/CEO of Grassroot Institute and on the adjunct faculty of Hawaii Pacific University. He is also a plaintiff in the US Supreme Court case Akina v. State of Hawaii which stopped a race-based election in 2015.
