Desecration at Hawea Heiau

Hawea Heiau in Maunalua is being watched and guarded closely by the community at this time due to recent work done by a developer that has partially desecrated this wahi pana.

This type of careless action, disregard and stupidity by certain developers and land owners who have no regard for the culture of Hawai'i or it's sacred places seems to continue all for the sake of greed and money. To them, Hawai'i is nothing more than a commodity in which they can rake in there speculative dollars and run away with it back to the mainland or wherever they come from.

The people of Hawai'i obviously cannot rely on the agencies or bureaucracies to stay on top of these types of violations or stop it. Only a vigilant community can put an end to this type of sickening behavior.
