'Sanford Dole' Joins Akaka Tribal Roll
By Andrew Walden @ 8:11 PM :: 5810 Views :: Akaka Bill

by Andrew Walden

As it desperately scrambles to pad the erstwhile Akaka Tribal Roll, how carefully is the Native Hawaiian Roll Commission checking the ancestry and validity of those signing up? 

In an effort to find the answer, we submitted the name of 'Sanford Dole'--leader of the 1893 overthrow of the Hawaiian Kingdom-- to Kanaiolowalu on December 22. 

At first the Roll informed us they were "awaiting confirmation of Native Hawaiian ancestry through documents that you submitted or other ancestry sources that you noted on your registration form."  But six days later it appears Mr. Dole has been officially, albeit perhaps posthumously, welcomed into the fold. 

In a December 28, 2013 email, Roll Commission Executive Director Clyde Namuo informs Sanford Dole: "Aloha and mahalo for signing on to the Kana`iolowalu Registry. By doing so, you are helping to write history as it unfolds, and standing to be counted in the self-recognition of the unrelinquished sovereignty of our people."

It leads one to wonder how many of the names listed on the Roll are fake.

Here are the messages we received in chronological order:
