Become a Certified Native Hawaiian Business

https://kanakaeconomy.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/10/KEDA_listing.jpg
What is a certified Native Hawaiian business?
A certified Native Hawaiian business is a business that is at least 50% owned or controlled by Native Hawaiians, who have had their ancestry verified via one of the services or agencies below. We also welcome nonprofits to create a listing in the directory if their Board of Directors is at least 50% Native Hawaiian, and their ancestry has been verified.
Why certification is important
Our certified directory members will have access to our certification logo and the benefits and services our nonprofit provides, furthering our mission "to empower the Native Hawaiian community and improve our collective livelihoods and the life of the land through self-led economic development." Your customers and clients will also have the confidence of knowing they are doing business with and supporting a certified Native Hawaiian business!
