Native Hawaiian Legal Corporation’s Third Annual Fundraiser set for Saturday, November 23, 2013, from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m at Keoho Plaza/Mamiya Theatre located on the grounds of Saint Louis School and Chaminade University.
We will commence the evening with a reception featuring the live musical stylings of Hi`ikua, ono food and drink, and a silent auction. I have attached an informational poster of the event and a donation form should you or someone you know wish to donate an auction item for this event.
Once our opu are full and our thirst for the musical stylings of Hi`ikua have been quenched, we will proceed into the comforting confines of Mamiya Theatre for the O`ahu premiere of the film entitled “Islands of Sanctuary“, which documents Native Hawaiian and Aboriginal Australian resistance to significant threats to the sacredness of their lands. (If you would like to learn more about Islands of Sanctuary and the Standing on Sacred Ground Film Project, please visit http://standingonsacredground.org/ .)

The award presentations will be made at our Annual General Membership meeting and Awards Luncheon.
Congratulations to Board Member Jacce Mikulanec!
Jacce Mikulanec was selected to represent the Northern California-Western Nevada-Pacific District at the JACL/OCA 2012 Leadership Conference. From March 10-13th, Jacce will join 29 other emerging leaders from the JACL and Organization of Chinese Americans (OCA) to learn about and advocate for issues impacting the Asian Pacific American community. Jacce will take part in policy briefings, meetings with congressional leaders, and attend a White House briefing.
On September 10, 2011, JACL-Honolulu Chapter and Japanese Cultural Center of Hawaii held a special event, “A Decade After 9/11: Acknowledging the Harms, Learning the Lessons, and Shaping the Future.” Event co-sponsors included ACLU of Hawaii, Community Alliance on Prisons, Hawaii Peace and Justice, Hawaii People’s Fund, and NAACP Hawaii.
The forum opened with an invocation by Rev. Dr. Jonipher Kwong of First Unitarian Church of Honolulu, followed by a video presentation of the 2003 Day of Remembrance, produced and directed by Cynthia Gates Fujikawa. A panel discussion was moderated by attorney Ellen Godbey Carson and featured Hakim Ouansafi of the Muslim Association of Hawai‘i, author Tom Coffman, and UH law professor Mari J. Matsuda.
Mr. Ouansafi spoke about his experiences as a Muslim American after 9/11 and noted the better experiences of Muslims in Hawai‘i compared to the experiences on the mainland. Mr. Ounsafi attributed much of it to the lasting sad memories here of the wrongful persecution and ensuing incarceration of over 300 Hawai‘i Japanese (aliens and Americans) in camps in Hawai‘i and over 1500 in mainland camps during World War II. Mr. Coffman discussed his research on ethnic relations in Hawaii before World War II and the role of inter-ethnic social connections as a way to greater understanding and respect. Prof. Matsuda spoke about the critical need for more education and dialogue in the areas of economic justice, religions, and peace.
