An election to determine a way forward on self-governance for Native Hawaiians has been canceled. Still leaders from the group Naʻi Aupuni say they will go forward with a four-week long constitutional convention next year. HPR’s Molly Solomon reports.
To avoid what could be years of litigation, organizers have terminated a vote some say may have been a path to Hawaiian nationhood. "No further votes will be accepted," said Kuhio Asam, the President of the group organizing the election, Naʻi Aupuni. "And no votes already cast will be counted."
