Hawaii v. Office of Hawaiian Affairs
No. 07-1372

Title:

    Hawaii v. Office of Hawaiian Affairs

Subject:

    Government Law, Joint Resolution to Acknowledge the 100th Anniversary of the January 17, 1893 Overthrow of the Kingdom of Hawaii

Question:

    In the Joint Resolution to Acknowledge the 100th Anniversary of the January 17,
    1893 Overthrow of the Kingdom of Hawaii, Congress acknowledged and apologized
    for the United States’ role in that overthrow. The question here is whether this
    symbolic resolution strips Hawaii of its sovereign authority to sell, exchange, or
    transfer 1.2 million acres of state land—29 percent of the total land area of the State
    and almost all the land owned by the State—unless and until it reaches a political
    settlement with native Hawaiians about the status of that land.
