OHA Claims No Plot to Fire Crabbe
By Selected News Articles @ 8:45 PM :: 5290 Views :: OHA


From August 23, 2014  (UPDATE Aug 26, 2014: See OHA response below)

Please forward this to all Hawaiians and our supporters.

As we have mentioned before, the Office of Hawaiian Affairs trustees are planning to terminate OHA CEO Kamana`opono Crabbe.

Highly reliable sources have informed us of the following - The trustees will not be extending Kamana`oʻs contract beyond the November elections. The search for a replacement CEO has already begun.

Highly reliable sources have reported that Kali Watson is campaigning for the position. If hired, Kali would be a perfect fit to further OHA, the Council For Native Hawaiian Advancement (CNHA) and the Sovereign Council of Hawaiian Homelands Assembly (SCHHA) strategies for federal recognition, the Native Hawaiian roll, and the taking of the ceded lands (stolen Hawaiian Kingdom lands.)

It is critically important to let the OHA trustees know that you are on to their plans.

Tell them Kamana`opono has done an outstanding job and you insist his contract be immediately renewed for the long term. Tell them you donʻt support ANY change in OHAʻs CEO position and you will hold them directly accountable for their actions.

Hereʻs where to contact them today -

News Release from OHA August 26, 2014

Statement by Colette Machado, Chairperson of the Office of Hawaiian Affairs:

“The Trustees are engaged in an annual performance evaluation of Ka Pouhana/CEO as required by OHA’s contract with Ka Pouhana/CEO. At its regular meeting on July 3rd, the trustees voted to hire a third-party professional consultant to assist the board with the 2nd year performance evaluation of Ka Pouhana/CEO to ensure objectivity and fairness. There is no clandestine plot by the trustees to terminate Ka Pouhana/CEO."

Statement by Kamana‘opono Crabbe, Ka Pouhana, Chief Executive Officer of the Office of Hawaiian Affairs:

“My annual performance review is part of my employment contract and I have been looking forward to it as it provides me with an opportunity to grow as Ka Pouhana. I have not asked anyone to write trustees to support me, nor do I believe such a campaign is warranted. Instead, I urge everyone to support our efforts to improve conditions for Native Hawaiians.”
