Family/Land Trust Creation

Preserving Ownership to Family Lands

Native Hawaiian families can take a proactive approach to protect family lands by forming trusts. Forming a trust ensures that family land is preserved for future generations, distributes the burdens of land ownership, and facilitates the transfer of land to one’s heirs. NHLC has assisted Native Hawaiian families with preparing the legal documents necessary to establish these trusts.
