First Friday : The Unauthorized News : Opposition to State-run Plebiscite (November 1996)
A current events update includes news of the Pae ʻOhana and Makua Beach evictions. Main topics include the debate between the Hawaiian Sovereignty Elections Council (HSEC) and opponents who do not support a state-controlled plebiscite. Major opposition comes from Ka Lāhui Hawaiʻi, which criticizes both the HSEC and the Office of Hawaiian Affairs, citing the needs to return ceded lands and end wardship, as Hawaiians are considered wards of the state of Hawaiʻi. Ka Lāhui Hawaiʻi expresses its major criticisms with OHA, and also cites its own accomplishments over the past ten years. Candidates running for OHA are also discussed.
