E komo mai. Welcome.

The Native Hawaiian Bar Association is an association of lawyers, judges and other legal professionals of Hawaiian ancestry which seeks to promote unity, cooperation and the exchange of ideas among its members. Formed in 1992, NHBA strives for justice and effective legal representation for all people of Hawaiian ancestry. NHBA represents attorneys whose practice range from solo practice to large firms, corporations, legal services organizations, non-profit organizations and governmental agencies. Included in its membership are non-Hawaiian legal professionals who have promoted the development of law for the benefit of people of Hawaiian ancestry.

NHBA has trained over 30 practitioners of traditional Hawaiian peacemaking through its Ho‘oponono Project. These haku are active today in our community. NHBA has also convened symposia and meetings on the issues affecting our Hawaiian community today: sovereignty, access and gathering protection, water usages guaranteed under State law, Hawaiian Home Lands and ceded lands breach of trust claims.
We come together on a bi-monthly basis.
