Today, August 6, 2018 – Trademarking Native culture

A Chicago-based Hawaiian restaurant chain, Aloha Poke Co., wants an exclusive copyright on restaurants using the words “aloha” and “poke” in their names. They sent a cease and desist notice to several businesses including a small, Hawaiian-owned restaurant in Anchorage. The legal confrontation sparked complaints on social media and elsewhere about a corporation trademarking Native words and names. With so many Native words and images used for everything from state and city names to cars, are there any legal protections? What best practices should a company think about when considering Native names?
