From FreeHawaii.Blogspot.com, May 13, 2017
OHAʻs Mauna Kea Ad hoc Committee has been nothing but a smoke screen.
OHAʻs Mauna Kea visit was a photo op to placate the lāhui and nothing more than a "feel good" PR Job.
OHA tries to co-opt any aloha `āina, Mauna Kea and Independence events every time.
When asked about kokua to support those who protest by occupying lands, OHA chair Colette Machado told Kaua`i residents they would need to be incorporated in order to get OHA help and funding.
OHA also stated their hands are tied when it comes to assisting in land occupations unless it comes from the trustee's personally.
OHA paid $50,000 of beneficiary funds to settle trustee Peter Apoʻs sexual harassment lawsuit.
OHA is currently being sued by two different parties to remove Apo and return the $50,000 beneficiary funds.
OHA trustees continue to vocalize their "concerns" about not having enough funds for an independent audit.
OHA board of trustees did not approve CEO Kamana`o Crabbe's renewal contract.
OHA is currently being investigated in a criminal probe for funds given to a non-profit without proper bidding.
OHA trustees voted to oust Rowena Akana as OHA chair claiming that she was censoring the voice of the lāhui yet current chair Collette Machado is saying and doing the exact same thing.
