OHA statement on the Mauna Kea extreme athlete viral video

HONOLULU (Feb. 6, 2019) –  Members of the OHA Board of Trustees joined the Hawaiian Caucus of the Hawaiʻi State Legislature and members of the Native Hawaiian community today to condemn the actions of extreme athletes on Mauna Kea in a recent video that has gone viral on social media.  

The following is OHA’s official statement regarding the incident:

In 2017, OHA sued the state and UH for their decades-long failure to meet their legal duties to adequately manage Mauna Kea and its natural and cultural resources. The actions captured in the video are just another example of the state’s inability to prevent disrespectful behavior on the mountain’s sacred cultural landscape.  It is time for the state and UH to be held accountable for their longstanding and well-documented mismanagement of Mauna Kea.
