January 31, 1990 | SUSAN ESSOYAN, SPECIAL TO THE TIMES
In a bid to boost their political clout and benefits, native Hawaiians voted 4 to 1 to expand the definition of their people to include anyone with a drop of Hawaiian blood, state officials announced Tuesday. Currently, only those Hawaiians deemed to have 50% or more native blood are eligible to receive income from a valuable 1-million-acre land trust. If the vote by the native Hawaiians leads to a constitutional amendment, that restriction could be lifted.
