This chapter challenges popular assumptions about the ways that Asian settlers like Daniel Inouye have “helped Hawaiians.” It shows that Inouye, who has accrued an extraordinary amount of political power for himself as a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, including the Subcommittee on Defense and Military Construction and the Subcommittee on Veteran Affairs, and of the Committee on Indian Affairs, is an institution backed by highly visible community organizations like the Japanese American Citizens' League (JACL). This chapter challenges Inouye and the JACL for their participation in a smear campaign against Native Hawaiian nationalist Mililani Trask, who had criticized Inouye's attempts to control the process for a self-determined sovereignty for Hawaiians.
