Ryan says "Mauna Kea is part of the ceded lands. That means it legally belongs to the Hawaiian people." If "Hawaiian" is used as the name of a race, that's false. The U.S. Supreme Court has just said it is false.
Ryan says "Ceded lands are administered under a trust by the University of Hawaii for the benefit of native Hawaiians." That's false. The ceded lands are for the benefit of all the people of Hawaii.
Ryan says: "Mauna Kea is sacred to the host culture, just as Mount Olive is sacred to Christians." Well, isn't every inch of land sacred to ethnic Hawaiians? But somehow life goes on, and even ethnic Hawaiians trash the environment along with everyone else.
I have thoroughly and very respectfully explained WHY Mauna Kea is a sacred place, and why doing astronomy there is a fulfillment of the sacred essence of that very special place. Please see
"How the telescope campus on Mauna Kea serves the spiritual essence of this sacred place in accord with Hawaiian creation legend; why testimony from Hawaiian sovereignty activists should be discounted in view of their motives" at

Seems like every place any institution is trying to use for some purpose, scientific, military, commercial, transportation or public use is somehow "sacred".
