Burial Protection

Protecting Tradition

The protection of na kupuna `oiwi (Native Hawaiian burials) is also a priority for NHLC. Time and time again, construction activities have resulted in the descretion of na kupuna ‘oiwi, despite a strong mandate for their protection under state law. NHLC is at the forefront of the battle to ensure that this mandate is met.
