Hawaiians in Nanakuli reflect tepid support for Akaka bill

By Associated Press

NANAKULI, Hawaii (AP) _ Opposition from Republicans scuttled a bill that would have secured for Native Hawaiians some of the same powers of self-governance given to American Indians.

But those in favor of the bill also had a hard time rallying Hawaiians behind it.

Several Hawaiians in Oahu's Nanakuli _ the site of site of the largest Hawaiian homestead _ say they're still not sure if they support the legislation.

Nanakuli homestead resident Elodia Kane is among those uncertain the legislation was the best way for the federal government to redress the 1893 overthrow of the Hawaiian Kingdom.

She Hawaiians are still a little confused about whether to back the bill.

One man in Nanakuli says he's thrilled the Akaka bill failed because he wants the Hawaiian Kingdom restored.
