Native Advisory Council

Council of Native American / Hawaiian / Australian Advisors

In addition to our staff, our work is advised by a group of traditional Native elders from Australia, Hawai’i and around the United States. Over the years, these “men and women of high degree” have helped us develop our projects with traditional communities and have helped to expand our awareness of traditional values. Our council is composed of:

Yuklin Aluli Attorney – Hawai’i
