A Note About Using This Guide:  The iwi kupuna and contract issues that are researched throughout this Guide are for illustration.  Depending on your specific issue and its related research strategies and relevant authorities, you are likely to rely on and consume the information within each tab in a piecemeal fashion.  Where this might apply, the Guide signals whether you might want to scroll only the left-side of the screen, only the right-side, or both, depending on your research strategy.  Mahalo.
