The purpose of creating a seperate section of the website pertaining to the Constitutions of Hawai‘i is due to the nature at which these documents are looked at in the current political and social climate in Hawai‘i and the Hawaiian community throughout the world.
We feel it is important to list these documents in a seperate section of the website in order to provide an easy way for our society members and the general public to access them.
