Forum Presents Both Sides in Akaka Bill Debate
A Forum on the Akaka Bill will be held tonight, Tuesday, February 16, 2010, with speakers presenting both sides of the debate. The bill was crafted to establish a process for Native Hawaiians to gain federal recognition.

The Akaka Bill forum runs from 6 to 8 tonight at the Student Lounge, Pilina Building at Maui Community College. The event is sponsored by the MCC Hawaiian Studies and Hawaiian Language Departments, as well as the Ho’okahua Project.
