I ali`i no ke ali`i i ke kanaka (A chief is a chief because of the people): Justice and Accountability through Access to the records of Hawai`i’s Governments, a joint project with Hawai’i State Archives, Hawaiinuiakea School of Hawaiian Knowledge at the University of Hawai`i – Manoa, Native Hawaiian Legal Corporation, Awaiaulu Literature Project, Hawai’i State Department of Education’s Office of Hawaiian Education, Honolulu Museum of Art, Washington Place, and Royal Order of Kamehameha I, is funded by the Council on Library and Information Resources. The digitization project focuses on the earliest governance records of Hawai`i, from the Hawaiian Kingdom through the overthrow of the Monarchy up to its annexation by the United States in 1900. A major emphasis of the project is on providing online access to ‘Olelo Hawai`i (Hawaiian Language) records from the Hawaiian Kingdom due to their ongoing cultural, as well as legal, importance. Hawai`i State Archives is building a Digital Archives system for launch that will enable the Hawai`i State Archives to preserve and make accessible for public research digital records of enduring historical, legal and fiscal value.
