Who We Are: A Native Hawaiian Company

DAWSON is a Native Hawaiian-owned global business enterprise headquartered in Honolulu, Hawaiʻi with offices across the U.S. and operations worldwide. The DAWSON companies— collectively known as DAWSON—are subsidiaries of the Hawaiian Native Corporation (HNC), a Native Hawaiian Organization (NHO) Federally-certified by the U.S. Small Business Administration since 2004.
Rooted in the Hawaiian values of aloha (embodying humility, respect, and compassion for all) and ʻohana (family), DAWSON carries forward a kuleana (responsibility) to benefit the Native Hawaiian community.

What We Do: Government Contracting
