People who know me already know that I refuse to register with the Office of Hawaiian Affairs and the Kau Inoa Native Hawaiian Registration Program. For the longest time I could not put it into proper English form... until now. This is why I refuse to register with OHA and with Kau Inoa:
"Sorry no... I choose not to register with OHA nor with Kau Inoa.
My kupuna never had an ID card identifying themselves as "Hawaiian" either.
I have no plans on changing that."
That says it ALL. That is... it's in the IWI.
Now stop bugging and/or nagging me about it. I will NOT change my mind.
