Daryl Huff, Department of Hawaiian Homelands Special Funding, Insights on PBS Hawai’i, 3/24/22

The Department of Hawaiian Homelands has been criticized for years over its failure to provide homes to Native Hawaiians. Thousands of people have waited decades for a shot at owning a home on their ancestral lands. Some have died waiting. State lawmakers are poised to pass historic legislation that would provide $600 million to help solve this problem. Panelists include: Tyler Iokepa Gomes, Department of Hawaiian Homelands, Deputy to the Chairman; Sen. Maile Shimabukuro (D), Kalaeloa, Nānākuli, Maiʻli, Waiʻanae, Mākaha; Blossom Feiteira, Maui Island and Hawaiian Homelands Beneficiary, Former Association of Hawaiian Homelands President; and Tom Yamachika, Tax Foundation of Hawaii. Original airdate 3/24/22.
