Representative Karen Awana was recently elected Treasurer of the National Caucus of Native American State Legislators by her peers.
“I humbly accept this honor to work alongside our Native American counterparts in a leadership role as we move forward to address issues that we both experience as indigenous peoples of the United States,” said Rep. Awana, who represents District 44 - Honokai Hale, Nanakuli, Lualualei, Maili.
Rep. Awana has also been named the Chair of the Economic Development Committee for the caucus.
The National Caucus of Native American State Legislators was initially formed in 1992 and currently is comprised of approximately 80 members from 18 states. Membership is open to all Native American, Alaska Native and Native Hawaiian state legislators.
