   The U.S. Department of the Interior’s recent hearings in Hawai‘i revealed a number of those testifying believe the U.S. government does not have jurisdiction over these islands.  As part of  ongoing coverage of sovereignty issues, HPR’s Noe Tanigawa took up the idea with Dr. Keanu Sai, who has been studying the Hawai‘i-U.S. relationship for over 3 decades.   Dr. Sai's research has had broad influence on the sovereignty debate, and this interview attempts to present his view.
