Abstract This study discusses the culturally based social problems caused by a long history of oppression experienced by Hawaiians, the indigenous population of Hawaii. Culturally appropriate prescriptions for empowerment are derivedfrom an analysis of historical and current social problems. Current movements to re-establish native sovereignty and an indigenous community-based economy are described as efforts to help solve these social problems. (Journal abstract.)
