OHA’s statement on Trump’s Executive Order to review National Monument designations or expansions

 

OHA’s statement on President Donald Trump’s recent Executive Order calling for the review of National Monument designations or expansions under the Antiquities Act since 1996, which  includes the Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument

“OHA stands behind the countless Native Hawaiian traditional and customary practitioners, navigators, scientists, conservationists, and others who called for the 2006 creation and the 2016 expansion of Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument, and urged OHA to join them in supporting the protection of this ‘āina akua.  Papahānaumokuākea is a unique contiguous cultural seascape that holds tremendous historic, cultural, and scientific value for Native Hawaiians and all Americans.  We believe that the current size and structure of this monument, and OHA’s place as a co-trustee for the area, should be maintained.”
