AA187C – Week 9 Lecture 1 04/03/2008 14:10:00 Council member Ismael Calvo observed: “Is the Guam Congress Still an advisory body, or do we have any legislative  powers?” “We are only a puppet Congress. There is no use wasting my time here if I am not  to represent my people.” Hawaii was removed from the UN list of self-governing regions and chose to  decolonized As Hawaiian scholar Davianna McGregor states: “The present generation of Hawaiians stands upon the threshold of history as no  previous generation of Hawaiians. Since first contact with Europeans and Americans,  generations after generation of Hawaiians have faced the specter of decline,  displacement, and impoverishment. However the possibility of extinction as a people with  a distinct language, culture, and land base has never been so imminent and real as it is  for Hawaiians today. Action or inaction on their part will determine whether the Hawaiian  language, culture, religion, subsistence farming, and fishing and land base will survive or  gradually disappear with the passing away of their kupuna (elders).”

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
