This briefing discusses The Native Hawaiian Government Reorganization Act of 2007 (S. 310, H.R. 505), commonly known as the Akaka Bill. The Akaka Bill proposes to establish a process for Native Hawaiians to gain federal recognition similar to the recognition that some Native American tribes currently possess. The purpose of the bill is to provide a process for the reorganization of the single Native Hawaiian governing entity and the reaffirmation of the special political and legal relationship between the U. S. and that Native Hawaiian governing entity for purposes of continuing a government-to-government relationship.
