A Constitution Drafted Behind a Locked Gate
On February 26, 2016, the unelected participants of the Naʻi Aupuni ʻAha 2016 passed a constitution behind a locked gate and heavy security in order to create a federally recognized “Native Hawaiian” nation. The vote was 88 in favor and 30 against. This constitution was created out of a process that was NOT PONO and is therefore being called the Naʻi Aupuni Gated 88 or NAG 88 Constitution. Don’t be the rubber stamp to this hewa.
Explanation of the Charts and Analysis
The charts and graphs available on the link below show the percent of yes and no votes by island groups as Na’i Aupuni defined them (“region”). It also shows that there were quite a few absences, both dropouts and people who just left the room. The ‘Ōlelo video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B0qYXWEfOxw
was reviewed twice, checking against other sources. This spreadsheet represents what is stated clearly by participants in the video. There’s no differentiation for votes “with reservations” because despite reservation it was counted as a yes. Also, the names in red are people who were on the original attendee list but whose names were not read out loud, and maybe dropped out.
