Statement of Office of Hawaiian Affairs on Mauna Kea arrests

Statement of Robert Lindsey, Chairman of the Office of Hawaiian Affairs Board of Trustees:

HONOLULU (July 31, 2015) – The Office of Hawaiian Affairs urges the state to cease further enforcement action and arrests until legal questions relating to the Mauna Kea emergency rules are properly resolved. Native Hawaiians have constitutionally protected rights to reasonably engage in traditional and customary practices, and regulations cannot eliminate the exercise of these rights. We hope for a resolution that ensures our beneficiaries’ rights are protected instead of violated.
