It is much appreciated to see lessees passionate enough to coordinate their precious time and resources to tackle a problem such as identifying our Homestead through establishing signage at our entrance and exploring easy maintenance landscaping alternatives to upgrade our look. Alyka Nakoa and Foster Ampong (Hui Chief #3 & Aha Moku o Wailuku member) will be heading an effort to organize this upgrade along with Joe Ponce our common area landscape maintenance contractor who will have to care for it through completion. Foster’s affiliation with Aha Moku o Wailuku and the island wide Moku system brings to bare another layer of perspective to this project (see The Maui News above). Now an initial meeting is being scheduled in order to talk with all interested partners to nail down a plan and formalize a budget. As a proposal is formulated stay tuned to this web site for further reporting. If you wish to make a comment on this or any other action the Board is working on feel free to utilize the CONTACT US page of this web site and the  Comment Box  near the bottom to email in your mana’o on this or any other Action Topic.

Text Box:  ANNUAL ASSOCIATION MEMBERSHIP MEETING (AAMM) and BOARD ELECTION.
Summary Highlights and where do we go from here

What is the lessons we should be learning from our resent Annual Homestead meeting?

It would seem in my estimation, as a community, we should be focused on foundational cultural principles we  all have in common. This core principle is our Hawaiian concept of OHANA. This relates to immediate family, father, mother, brother, sister. More broadly it would be the extended family, uncle, aunty, cousins, hana’i. This definition of OHANA may have to be even more inclusive because of the circumstances that we all find ourselves living under here in the Hawaiian Home Lands (HHL). After waiting so long to become a HHL beneficiary, decades in some instances, we should not be squandering opportunities presented, but optimizing them for our benefit, especially since we now have a 99 or more year investment.

This concept of OHANA needs to incorporate the next element of the Hawaiian aina/social structure, the AHUAPUA’A, the village, the immediate social/geographical region we find ourselves living in. This AHUAPUA’A the Hawaiian social/geographical region consisting of multiple OHANAs that live together in close proximity and share resources that they need to manage wisely. This is where we are as a Hawaiian Homestead Association and why some of us feel so strongly about an organized community, the AHUAPUA’A, or social/political component that should give us a sense of control over an otherwise chaotic western society.

When we are labeled as indigenous Hawaiians and also beneficiaries of a land trust left for our “rehabilitation” by the overthrown government, the monarchy of the NATION of HAWAII we are rightly the kanaka maoli, keiki no ka aina, and this is where our sovereignty has its piko. This Hawaiian Homestead is where it starts for us, so why aren't we protecting it, nurturing it, and leaving it better than we got it for our next generations, our mo’opuna. This is the commitment we need to embrace along with all of the people here that share it with us.

These shared commitments includes all the provisions we agreed to when each of us sign our leases, this would include the payment of Association maintenance dues. I do not wish to dwell on this but have to make mention because of the blatant inequalities this represents between those who are honest and those who have chosen the less than honest path on this issue. Our  policy as the governing Board of Directors is to account for dues and bring them up at critical times of lease sales, transfers, refinancing opportunities and Design and Review application approval all requiring legal Association and DHHL authorization.

As the Board of Directors pursues its strategic planning objectives, seeking grant opportunities, and its engagement of the community in projects to the betterment of the Homestead we need your kokua. Please consider becoming a more active part of our Association, _ Board Director (2 positions currently open), Hui Chiefs (2 positions currently open), Neighborhood Watch/Security Volunteers (beginning to organize now) and Community Gardener Volunteers (beginning to organize now).

The Maui News / MATTHEW THAYER photo

Text Box: A sign designating the boundary of the ahupua’a (land division) of Kamaole stands along Piilani Highway near the entrance to Maui Meadows on Saturday morning. The signs designed to raise awareness about Hawaii’s ancient land division system started going up last fall. The aim of the cultural heritage program funded by the county Office of Economic Development is to create and install signs for all 12 moku (districts) in the county. The signs currently installed along South Maui’s roadways indicate which ahupua’a and moku people are in.

The Maui News / March 30, 2019

The premiere topic of the AAMM survey was neighborhood security. This was resulted from incident where police with guns drawn came into the Homestead and surrounded a house where drug use was alleged. There is no report of the incident online and any documentation is rather vague. The response the Association will implement is to try to promote a Neighborhood Watch program and possibly some cameras to track unusual traffic at odd times in the Homestead. The Neighborhood Watch program will hinge on volunteers from the community, hopefully some persons who voiced concerns and the Board Directors shall actively pursue this.

Re-establishing of Hui Chief commitment would mean questioning of Chiefs and educating them on duties they are responsible for in the service of the community. Updating of contact information for Hui Chief Network would be a priority to improving the system.

Dialog is key to an interactive conversation on issues related to the functioning of our Homestead, this has been addressed with Comment Boxes, email upgrades, and more web site interactivity and archiving of lessee issues for Board scrutiny.

Daniel will provide more detail on this new proposal as it develops.
