HONOLULU (July 29, 2019) — First, we thank Mayor Harry Kim for convening last Friday’s meeting of Native Hawaiian community members to discuss Maunakea. The meeting provided the opportunity for participants to share our many different perspectives and manaʻo about the issue.  The only consensus participants seemed to have reached was that these kinds of conversation should continue.  OHA’s hope is that future meetings include members of the Kiaʻi.

Immediately following the meeting with Mayor Kim on Friday, we visited the Kiaʻi at Puʻuhonua o Puʻuhuluhulu and discussed how OHA can continue to support the rights, safety, and well-being of our beneficiaries engaging in peaceful protests of the state’s decades-long pattern of mismanagement of Maunakea.
