Akaka Bill: Office of Hawaiian Affairs — Reposted

There’s more to beware from the Office Of Hawaiian Affairs. Hawai`i’s cultural sites that they’re supposed to maintain where the US Army trains. But instead of protect, it’s something else OHA neglects. Want the details of where OHA fails? Watch this video to see what OHA’s doing that’s got everyone stewing:

You can also read the Hawaii Independent’s article, “OHA ‘drops the ball’ in protecting cultural sites from Stryker brigade” here:

Independently contracted archaeologist Christopher Monahan, comments on the Army’s numerous shortcomings in its attempts at documenting cultural sites, which, if included on the National Register of Historic Places, offers them various protections from being disturbed.

His report can be seen here:

Leon Siu wrote a piece about the Akaka Bill which recently appeared in the Hawai’i Reporter on August 3, 2010. Here is another excerpt:

“We, the people of Hawai`i, declare our opposition to the 2010 version of the Akaka bill, and strongly object to being excluded from this legislative process,” stated Leon Siu representing the Koani Foundation, part of a coalition of Native Hawaiian groups.

“We have long been told that open, public debates in matters that affect the citizenry are part of the US democratic process. But it has not been so with the Akaka bill.”

“We, the people of Hawai`i, insist the US Senate Indian Affairs Committee hold public hearings on S.1011 in Hawai`i as soon as possible. We demand to be heard.”

The only time public hearings were held in Hawai`i on the [Akaka] bill was ten years ago.

At that hearing, people turned out in record numbers to oppose the legislation.

Since then, the only hearings held on the Akaka bill were in Washington, DC in the dead of winter, 5,000 miles from Hawai`i, and no opposing testimony from Hawaiians or anyone else was allowed.

Akaka Bill: Hawaiians Demand Akaka Bill Hearings in Hawaii

Stop the Akaka Bill

Leon Siu’s piece about the Akaka Bill recently appeared in the Hawai’i Reporter on August 3, 2010.

An excerpt:

We are contacting you to make you aware of broad opposition to S.1011, the Native Hawaiian Government Reorganization Act of 2009, otherwise known as the Akaka bill, throughout Hawai`i and to ask for your vote AGAINST this bill.

Regardless of what Hawai`i Senators Akaka and Inouye have told your office, the people of Hawai`i, including Native Hawaiians, do not support the Akaka bill and are demanding public hearings be held in Hawai`i before any vote occurs in Congress.

Over the years, poll after poll has shown the citizens of Hawai`i, both native and non-native to be overwhelmingly opposed to this bill.
