Why can't we preserve the burial of our ancestors? The Native Americans get that right on the maineland. It's no different. Or is it just because some "rich" maineland or European folks or others, buy the property and do as they please, only cause they have money. Ya'll have forgotten uh "ua mau ke ea o ka aina i ka pono" These people and politicians and maybe some lawyers included are just gettin richer and forgetting our heritage. NOT to mention ruin the aina

This can easily be handled without everyone getting their shorts in a bunch. Let OHA buy the land from Mr. Brescia at the price he paid. They have the money. As to Ms. Nancy McMahon belief that 30 grave sites do not constitute a cemetery, where does she get that information. She definately missed the mark on that revelation. Webster's defines a cemetery as a place where the dead are buried. I know of no cemetery where the dead are not buried in individual plots/sites. By her definition of a cemetery that would mean they would just open up a big hole and dump all the bodies into that one hole. Ridiculous.

Its discraceful and a disrespect of our ancestors that the State and Planning commision have decided to act this way! shame on all of you! for the way you have treated the iwi. I am Kanaka Maoli from the mainland and will be sending my support, my kala and my warriors to stand up to the injustice and blatant disregard of Native Hawaiian rights.

This kinda think makes me sick. land stolen from kanaka by the everpresent stormptroopers taking over all lands they can get their greedy hands on. Hawaiian culture and traditions trod upon and thru the amerkkaner warped legal system, widespread desecration is justified hand in hand with greedy investors buying up all the land which helps land and property values skyrocket. This is not the land of the free. That's a marketing tool of the conus.
