OHA statement on Maui Mayor Arakawa’s comments

Pōhaku (rocks) are a cornerstone of Native Hawaiian material and living culture, providing not only a vast array of utilitarian uses such as tools, vessels, weights, and building materials, but also immense spiritual and political importance for the Native Hawaiian people.

We encourage a discussion with Maui Mayor Alan Arakawa and other officials regarding the significance of pōhaku and the most appropriate and respectful ways to mālama this cultural resource.
