Office of Hawaiian Affairs (OHA)
The Office of Hawaiian Affairs (OHA) is a public agency with a high degree of autonomy. OHA is responsible for improving the well-being of Native Hawaiians.
OHA grew out of organized efforts in the 1970s to right past wrongs suffered by Native Hawaiians for over 100 years. Hawaiians’ newfound activism brought their plight to the consciousness of the general public, leading grassroots leaders to propose, at the time, that income from land taken from the illegal overthrow of the Hawaiian Kingdom be used to benefit Hawaiians. After voters of all backgrounds agreed, OHA was born in 1978.
Association of Hawaiian Civic Clubs (AHC)
The oldest Hawaiian community-based grass roots organization founded in 1918 by Prince Jonah Kuhio Kalaniana’ole, Delegate to the United States House of Representatives. They:
- Are advocates for improved welfare of native Hawaiians in culture, health, economic development, education, social welfare, and nationhood, to name a few.
- Perpetuate and preserve language, history, music, dance and other cultural traditions.
