Ka Huli Ao Center for Excellence in Native Hawaiian Law and the Environmental Law Program present another great Maoli Thursday event entitled "Aloha ‘Āina, Aloha Kānaka: Protecting Sacred Sites for the Well-Being of Native Hawaiian Communities" featuring Native Hawaiian practitioner Kealoha Pisciotta, Public Health Professor Dr. Maile Tauali‘i and Law Professor Linda Krieger. The struggles identified by the cultural practitioner will be analyzed by an academic health professional through the lens of medical and public health research on trans-generational trauma transmission that negatively affects the health and welfare of culturally affiliated Kanaka Maoli. We will then see how this information can be used in contested case hearings and related litigation regarding development affecting places of cultural and spiritual significance to indigenous communities.
