Compiled by Mountain Apple Company with the express permission of the recording labels and artists. Mahalo nui to Mountain Apple Company and all the artists for their generous spirit in supporting NHLC!
The need for NHLC’s services is as great as ever. Vast amounts of land and water resources are now available for reclamation by Native Hawaiians, as these resources have been freed from over a century of use and possession by large plantations in the islands. Right now, efforts are being made to commit these resources to urban and suburban development, which would foreclose Native Hawaiians yet again from preserving and restoring their way of life. The time for legal action, both in defending against quiet title actions threatening to extinguish Native Hawaiian ownership claims and in reclaiming traditional water resources, is now.
NHLC is the only firm dedicated to addressing the legal challenges to Native Hawaiians as individuals and as a community. Every dollar of your donation, big or small, will help NHLC to carry out its mission to preserve that which makes Hawaii special – the spirit and way of life of its indigenous people.
NHLC is a charitable organization and all donations are tax-deductible. Here is how you can donate:
Your donation for any amount can be made by credit card though our website.
Donations by personal check, money order, cashiers check, or cash may be sent to:Native Hawaiian Legal Corporation

In-kind donations of goods or services (airplane tickets, rental cars, document reproduction services) by companies that support NHLC can also make a big difference.

Attorneys can fulfill their pro bono requirements by assisting with NHLC’s cases in any capacity or by contributing financially under rule 6.1 of the Hawai'i Rules of Professional Conduct.
The Native Hawaiian Legal Corporation provides legal representation to individuals who want to amend their birth certificates to reflect their Native Hawaiian ancestry. These amendments are necessary to establish eligibility for DHHL awards or other Hawaiian programs.
NHLC seeks attorneys who are willing to prosecute declaratory relief actions on behalf of these individuals. These actions seek to (1) obtain a paternity order that would establish Native Hawaiian ancestry and (2) to obtain a court order directing the Department of Health to amend the birth certificate in conformance with the paternity order. These cases are typically resolved on summary judgment.
NHLC will provide an expert who can prepare the genealogy needed to establish paternity. NHLC will also provide exemplars and technical assistance throughout the case. A DNA test is sometimes necessary to successfully establish paternity.
Attorneys can benefit from taking these cases in the following ways:
- junior associates can get experience and training managing a case, preparing and arguing a motion for summary judgment and working with experts;
- build good will in the community;
- you will satisfy Rule 6.1 of Hawaii Rules of Professional Conduct.
If you are interested in these cases or any other pro bono opportunities at NHLC, please contact Moses Haia, Executive Director, at email@example.com or (808)521-2302.
Your donation will enable the Native Hawaiian Legal Corporation to provide effective, low cost legal assistance to individuals, families and communities who seek to protect their traditional cultural practices and maintain their ancestral ties to their lands and natural resources.
