When I was in Yap(Micronesia)the people used 'Nipa' leaves (from Mangrove), which are larger and stronger than Ti-leaves, on their 'fale.'
Hey we asked them for their expertise on navigating. Why not ask their expertise on thatching? I'm sure it would take way less than 1/2 mil leaves!

Here we go again. Why can't those 2 groups just work together. Why must Hawaiians always fight for being in charge. Put your damn egos aside and work together. Sheesh enough already!!!!!

Let those that have directly benefited from the legacy of Kamehameha lend a hand. Kamehameha Schools would be a good place to start.Alumni,students,faculty, Trustees and family and friends of all of them. Problem solved.

This is where OHA, Kau Inoa, and other Native Hawaiians should come out and help! This is their history. It's a place that seems even more important than the Palace!(-_-)

Wrong, wrong, wrong.
The kahu of the property should take care of the property. No need advertise in the paper. It's their kuleana, if they take the responsibility, it's their job to take care, not anyone else's. What happened to our people? Your job - you take care. Don't cry to everyone if you no can take care. Let those who can take care, take care. Auwe!

All hawaiians claim to be decendants of Kam. the great. Let them take care of the hale. They're not working anyway. Make a contest out of it. The person who picks the most ti leaf can be the king.

wish i could be there to see the gathering of leaves and the help of many people including all kamaaina's and see how it must have been in the past when all would share the same mana and kokua.
