Maui meeting critical of OHA settled deal

Maui News reports:

Office of Hawaiian Affairs officials presented a proposed settlement to Native Hawaiians on Friday night in which the agency would receive $200 million in Honolulu real estate for revenue generated on Hawaiian monarchy lands.

But some of the approximately 50 people who attended the meeting at Maui Waena Intermediate School reacted with anger and distrust of OHA negotiating a deal with the state.

During a question-and-answer session, Foster Ampong said that having OHA, a state agency, negotiate with the state is like “a thief negotiating with itself.”
