Poka Laenui, chairman of the Native Hawaiian Convention, an international delegation of Hawaiians which examines the issues of Hawaiian sovereignty and self-governance, says he does not dispute Sai's historical claims, nor does he disagree that the US occupies the Hawaiian Islands in violation of international law.
He says Sai has made a "very positive contribution." He does, however, suggest that Sai's efforts toward deoccupation could go further or be more inclusive. Laenui points out that the United States listed Hawaii as a territory to be decolonized in 1946 in the UN General Assembly Resolution 66 (1). "We need not only to look at the historical, legal approach, but beyond that … we need to change the deep culture of Hawaii to build a better quality of life," Laenui says.
