Hawaiian recognition won't divide people

Regarding Ken Conklin's position on OHA, "Abolish it," as expressed in his Oct 15 letter: Motive? Could it be because Conklin lost the statewide election as an OHA trustee? Why would someone want something abolished that he had sought to manage?

While Conklin proclaims Hawaiian recognition would divide the people, there is no evidence that the recognition of the 450-plus Native American entities has divided the United States in any shape or form.

Hawaiians, as a Native American people, deserve the very same treatment as other native peoples of the United States.
