Letter to Kawaiaha’o Church:

I have ‘ohana buried at Kawaiaha’o Church Cemetery and I am concerned with the Church’s decision in this matter. I strongly urge you to stop the unearthing of na iwi until you hold…… ho’oponopono with the descendants and other ‘ohana that will be affected by the removal of the iwi.

The concerns of the ‘ohana is foremost over the construction of a building. The people are the church; not a building. You are contradicting your church’s beliefs.

Mahalo,
Tane

Kawaiahao Church Profiting off the Bones

Kawaiahao Church Profiting off the Bones

Four days after after a massive protest over mass grave desecrations at Kawaiaha’o Church, it was business at usual at Kawaiaha’o Church sunday services.

Kawaiaha’o Church sunday services commenced as scheduled with no care in the world for those who are protesting the desecration of the graves of our kupuna/elders.

This was Kahu Kurt Kekuna‘s message that he and the Kawaiaha’o Church Board of Trustees will continue to persevere and desecrate the bones of OUR KUPUNA:

DOE Department of Education in Hawai’i Plans to Close Queen Lili’uokalani Elementary School

Instead of cutting back on their administration costs, the Department of Education in Hawai’i plans to close Queen Lili’uokalani Elementary School

The Star Advertiser posted their story here.

It looks like a unilateral decision has been made without the input from the public.
