“Native Hawaiian Law: A Treatise” by Kamehameha Publishing

Kamehameha Publishing is holding a book launch event this evening, Tuesday, October 20, at William S. Richardson School of Law from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m. for Native Hawaiian Law: A Treatise.

Native Hawaiian Law: A Treatise is the definitive resource for understanding critical legal issues affecting Native Hawaiians. This extensively revised and updated edition of the groundbreaking 1991  Native Hawaiian Rights Handbook offers a comprehensive overview and analysis of specific topics within this complex area of law including:

  • Native Hawaiians and U.S. Law
  • Native Hawaiians and International Law
  • The Public Land Trust
  • Water Rights
  • Traditional and Customary Access and
    Gathering Rights
  • Burial Rights
  • The Hawaiian Homes Commission Act
  • The Island of Kahoʻolawe
  • Indigenous Cultural Property
  • Native Hawaiian Health
  • Hawaiian Language and Education
  • And miuch more

Native Hawaiian Law provides the tools to find relevant cases, statutes,
and regulations impacting the rights of Native Hawaiians. It focuses on
the relationship between Native Hawaiians and the state and federal governments; trust lands; vital areas of resource protection and management; protection of burials, repatriation, language, education,
and health; and emerging human rights norms affecting indigenous peoples. This in-depth guide is an essential addition to the growing body of scholarship on indigenous peoples’ law.

Native Hawaiian Law: A Treatise is a collaborative effort of the Native Hawaiian Legal Corporation, Ka Huli Ao Center for Excellence in Native Hawaiian Law at the William S. Richardson School of Law – University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa, and Kamehameha Publishing.
