Ceason Ranson Race, Racism, & American Law ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY Native Hawaiian Sovereignty Law Review Articles: Jennifer L. Arnett, The Question for Hawaiian Sovereignty: An Argument for the Rejection of Federal Acknowledgement, 14-FALL Kan. J.L. & Pub. Pol y 169 (2004). This article argues against the movement for Native Hawaiian sovereignty, and is useful because it gives detail about the sovereign process as a whole. The author explains very well the idea of the federally recognized tribe and how that comes into play when determining if Native Hawaiians benefit from Native American sovereignty laws. R. H K Lei Lindsey, Akaka Bill: Native Hawaiians, Legal Realities, and Politics as Usual, 24 I. Haw. L. Rev. 693 (2002). The Akaka Bill is a key piece of legislation dealing with Native Hawaiian sovereignty, and this article does an excellent job explaining what the bill is, how it relates to the Constitution, and what it means in relation to current sovereignty laws. The article also pinpoints the international law claims that may arise during the sovereignty movement, and how that enhances the groups seeking an independent Hawaii. Le a Malia Kanehe, The Akaka Bill: the Native Hawaiians Race for Federal Recognition, 23 U. Haw. L. Rev. 857 (2001). This article not only gives a good explanation of the Akaka Bill, but more important gives a detailed history of Hawaii. An indigenous group s history is key to understanding why they deserve sovereignty, and this article s history section allows anyone interested in this subject to understand why Native Hawaiians are seeking sovereignty. Annmarie M. Liermann, Seeking Sovereignty: The Akaka Bill and the Case for the Inclusion of Hawaiians in Federal Native American Policy, 41 Santa Clara L. Rev. 509 (2001). This article goes into great detail and analysis about Native American sovereignty laws and how it applies to Native Hawaiian. Because Native American sovereignty laws are the current legislation dealing with sovereignty, it is important to understand their context and how they are applied, and this article does an excellent job explaining the laws and cases involved. Kimberly A. Costello, Rice v. Cayetano: Trouble in Paradise for Native Hawaiians Claiming Special Relationship Status, 79 N.C. L. Rev. 812 (2001). Rice v. Cayetano is a key case in the Native Hawaiians sovereignty movement, and this article contains good information regarding the case and how it applies to the movement. It especially explains the implication of Morton v. Mancari on sovereignty and how it fits with Constitutional standards. Eric Steven O Malley, Irreconcilable Rights and the Question of Hawaiian Statehood, 89 Geo. L.J. 501 (2001). This article is a good source of information regarding the trust lands in Hawaii. These 1.2 million acres are the native lands the state of Hawaii is holding in trust for Native Hawaiians, and are one of the reasons for the sovereignty movement. The article lays out the history of these lands, and the part federal and state courts have played in dealing with these lands. John M. Van Dyke, The Political Status of the Native Hawaiian People, 17 Yale L. and Pol y Rev. 95 (1998). This article should be read after the Stuart Minor Benjamin article, because it for Native Hawaiian sovereignty, and break down, point by point, the difference between Benjamin s argument and the author s own. This is important because it enables people interested in this topic to get a full picture of the arguments for and against sovereignty, and allows them to form their own opinion as to this decisive topic. Stuart Minor Benjamin, Equal Protection and the Special Relationship: The Case of Native Hawaiians, 106 Yale L.J. 537 (1996). Benjamin argues that Native Hawaiians have no claim to sovereignty because neither the Constitution nor Native American sovereignty laws permit Native Hawaiians to attain sovereignty. His article is extremely detailed, and offers an excellent look into the issue. William H. Rodgers, Jr., The Sense of Justice and the Justice of Sense: Native Hawaiian Sovereignty and Second Trial of the Century, 71 Wash L. Rev. 379 (1996). This is a good article in its discussion of Native Hawaiian independency advocate, Bumpy Kanahele. It discusses the movement for an independent Hawaii, and how Kanahele plays a major role in that movement. Noelle M Kahannu & Jon M. Van Dyke, Native Hawaiian Entitlement to Sovereignty: An Overview, 17 I. Haw. L. Rev. 427 (1995). Native Alaskans are another indigenous group that have been awarded sovereignty. This article presents a look at the Native Alaskan struggle for sovereignty, and how they used Native American sovereignty laws to obtain their own special status. This is important, so that Native Hawaiians can see how they fit in sovereignty laws, and how other indigenous groups who do not completely fit Native American sovereignty definitions have still obtained sovereignty. Eric K. Yamamoto, Moses Haia, & Donna Kalama, Courts and the Culture Performance: Native Hawaiians Uncertain Federal and State Law Rights to Sue, 16 U. Haw. L. Rev. 1 (1994). This article s importance lies in its explanation of international law and how it applies to Native Hawaiian sovereignty. Because Native Hawaiians had no opportunity to be reviewed under international law, there is a question as to whether the United Nations might be able to play a role in creating an independent Hawaii. This article has some explanation on this role, and the possibly outcome if Native Hawaiians pursue this route. Cases/ Laws: Arakaki v. Lingle, 423 F.3d 954 (9 th Cir. 2004). This case demonstrates the inability of courts to define who is a Native Hawaiian. The Ninth Circuit affirmed the lower court s ruling that it was up to Congress to define who was Native Hawaiian, and until that occurred, the Plaintiffs had no standing to sue the Hawaiian state government concerning trust lands. Morton v. Mancari, 417 US 535 (1974). This is the seminal case for the standard of review for sovereign nation. In it, the Supreme Court held that programs and laws dealing with recognized sovereign nations are to be reviewed under rational review, not strict scrutiny. Sovereign groups and their programs would reviewed as political groups, not a racial classification, and therefore, Native American sovereignty laws were able to by- pass the strict scrutiny standard that normally pervades cases of racially motivated legislation. Rice v. Cayetano, 528 US 495 (2000). This case held that since Native Hawaiians have not been recognized as a sovereign nation, OHA may not prohibit all Hawaiians from voting in its elections. The Plaintiff was not a Native Hawaiian, and was therefore denied the right to vote for the trustees who administered the trust lands in Hawaii. The Supreme Court did not review OHA s voting policy under a rational relation standard, instead reviewing it under strict scrutiny. In its holding, the Supreme Court stated that because Native Hawaiians were not recognized as a sovereign group, the prohibition keeping non- Native Hawaiians from voting in OHA elections violated the Plaintiff s 15 th Amendment rights, and was struck down as such. Apology Resolution, Pub. L. No , 107 Stat (1993). This was the impetus to the current Native Hawaiian sovereignty movement. This resolution, issued in 1993, apologized for the illegal taking of Hawaii from Native Hawaiians and the subsequent inquisition of the United States in making it a state of the union. The resolution also calls for a reconciliation between the United States government and Native Hawaiians. The Akaka Bill, H.R. 4904, 106 th Cong. (2000); 109 S th Cong. (2000); S. 81, 107 th Cong. (2001). This is the most currently legislation dealing with the issue of Native Hawaiian sovereignty. The senior Hawaiian senator, Daniel Akaka, proposed this legislation, which would grant Native Hawaiians the same nation within a nation sovereign status achieved by Native Americans and Native Alaskans. This bill, however, is controversial among both Hawaiians and other members of Congress, and has therefore stalled in the legislative process. Newspaper/ Magazine Articles Advertiser Staff.

Robert Klein. Conservative or not, Roberts probably would support it. Honolulu Advertiser. September 4, This is an interesting article because it discusses whether Chief Justice John Roberts would support Native Hawaiian sovereignty.

World Affairs. Winter 2002, Vol. 164, Issue 3, page 135. This article focuses on Rice v. Cayetano, and the Constitutional issues it imposed. This is a very detailed article, and helps explain the role the Constitution plays in issues of sovereignty. Paul Theroux. Hawai i. National Geographic. December 2002, Vol. 202, Issue 6, p This is an interesting article because it not only gives a brief history of Hawaii (very important to issue of sovereignty) but it also profiles one of the groups intent on creating an independent Hawaii.
