Who We Are: A Native Hawaiian Company

DAWSON is a Native Hawaiian global business enterprise serving the U.S. Department of Defense and other Federal Government clients. Operating worldwide, DAWSON is headquartered in Honolulu, Hawaiʻi with offices across the U.S.
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.
