Demonstrators/Participants Sought for Hawaiian Caucus Day on March 19

March 19 is the annual "Hawaiian Caucus Day" from 10am to 4pm on the 3rd and 4th floors of the State Capitol, sponsored by the legislators, such as Rep. Maile Shimabukuro, who are members of the Hawaiian Caucus.

Applications are being accepted now thru March 12 for any groups interested in hosting a display table/booth.

The Legislature will be honoring grammy award winner George Kahumoku and Cliff Hashimoto of the Royal Order of Kamehameha during the House floor session at noon. Lunch will be provided to those hosting displays and entertaining. The event is free and open to the public.

Coincidentally, the House Agriculture Committee will also be hearing SB 958, which places a 10-year ban on genetic testing of taro, on the morning of March 19. (see announcement further below in this blog).

For more information, contact Hawaiian Caucus Chair Rep. Mele Carroll at or 586-6790.
