OHA: Office of Hawaiian Affairs

OHA facilitates meeting and places Mauna Kea on upcoming Board agenda

HONOLULU – The Office of Hawaiian Affairs has arranged for a meeting tomorrow (April 24) for representatives from the Governor’s office, the University of Hawaiʻi, the Office of Mauna Kea Management, the Mauna Kea Hui, the Mauna Kea ʻOhana, and OHA to discuss the thirty-meter telescope planned for Mauna Kea.

“We are glad that the Mauna Kea ʻOhana will participate in the discussions to convey their own positions and perspectives. With the different parties coming together in shared conversation, we believe this will bring greater understanding for everyone—an important first step in efforts aimed at finding resolution,” said OHA Chairperson Robert K. Lindsey Jr.

“All parties are genuinely interested in hearing from one another and connecting he alo a he alo, face-to-face. The in-person communication allows us to convey more than just information. You can see and sense a lot in the presence of others—such important things as honesty, commitment, respect, and aloha. These are vital for problem solving,” said OHA Chief Executive Officer Kamanaʻopono Crabbe.

The OHA Board of Trustees are calling a special meeting to discuss its position on Mauna Kea and the Thirty Meter Telescope on April 30.

The trustees had originally filed an agenda with the Lt. Governor’s office scheduling the meeting for May 7. However, after discussion by the board of trustees, Chair Robert Lindsey, Jr. agreed to move up the date of the meeting to April 30.
