Send Me To DC

Here’s the deal – I’m trying to get to DC at the end of this month to cover a supreme court case concerning land that may or may not belong to the State of Hawaii.  The governor and her AG have appealed a Hawaii State supreme court decision that said the State did not have jurisdiction to sell the land because of a federal apology that said the overthrow of the independent Hawaii Nation in 1893 was illegal. It’s pretty tricky stuff, here’s my recent article about it – “Hawaii in Legal Spotlight”.

The problem is my paper can’t afford the plane ticket to get me out there – so I’m looking for outside funding from legal/media types.

This case has been called the most important in the upcoming suprememe court session and it will have implications for all native people in America.

So – who’s got those connections to get me there?  All I need is about $1000.
