Foundations for the Future: Empowerment Economics in the Native Hawaiian Context

General Material
Published Date
October, 2017

This report offers insight into the challenges and opportunities of building wealth in Native Hawaiian communities, and fills a gap in research by shedding light on a group whose strengths and struggles are uniquely reflective of both indigenous histories and Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) experiences. The report highlights HCA's work with its members and partners as a case study in building community wealth using a multi-generational approach, aligning with the Native Hawaiian value of building wealth for not just the individual, but for the broader family and community.

"Foundations for the Future" identifies key recommendations for practitioners and policy makers including the need to embed empowerment economics into policy and practice, strengthening policies to address economic instability, income volatility, and access to wealth building programs; and finally that a local and place-based lens to policies and programs are critical components of effective wealth building strategies.
