Another practicing attorney featured

Moses Kalei Nahonoapi‘ilani Haia III is a graduate of the William S. Richardson School of Law and a staff attorney with the Native Hawaiian Legal Corporation. In 2007, the Honolulu Star-Bulletin recognized Moses as among "10 Who Made A Difference." CLICK HERE to read the article.

Find out what Moses Haia says about the future of Native Hawaiian culture and the law by watching the video below.

As part of our community outreach, for the next several weeks, we are providing a series of video clips of law students (and a few lawyers) on our blog. These law students and lawyers share their experience either in law school or in the legal profession.

We invite you to watch these brief video clips and hear what these inspirational people have to say.

It would be so awesome for more young people to pursue this as Mr. Haia did! Mahalo for sharing this interview because now I get to put a face with the name.

Aloha kaua dear Moses,

Do you know of anyone who is currently working on an Official Languages Act (OLA) for Hawai'i on behalf of Hawaiian language speakers?

Last October I launched a grassroots hui to demonstrate popular support for this idea whose time has come for Hawai'i. Would you please take a look at our website? Many of us think that passage of OLA would help us all to be able to celebrate the State's 50th anniversary when that time comes in August.

Aloha Sprite,

More and more young people are pursuing this as Mr. Haia did. If you look at our other interviews, most of our video interviews are of current law students.

Aloha e Kaleponi,

I just wanted to clarify that this is not Moses Haiaʻs website. Moses was the interviewed subject of this video.

Mahalo nui loa for checking out our blog.
