Introducing the Pouhana O Na Wahine Serving as the Native Hawaiian Resource Center on Domestic Violence
HOSTED BY: National Indigenous Women’s Resource Center
This webinar will introduce the PONW and their work to implement the NHRCDV over the next five years . In addition, they will share the history of Native Hawaiians, and their unique relationship with the federal government which is rooted in colonization and violence reflected in U.S.’ policies and practices. In 1993, the United States issued an apology to Native Hawaiians and recognized how colonization had impacted economic and social changes across the islands and in 2016 the Department of Interior released “Procedures for Reestablishing a Formal Government to Government Relationship with the Native Hawaiian Community” which affirmed the foundation of trust responsibilities for the federal government to the Native Hawaiian population.
