Mālama Kakanilua

Mālama Kakanilua is presently engaged in direct action resistance/protection of ‘iwi kūpuna, and aims to stop the Grand Wailea Resort from constructing 151 hotel units, swimming pools, new wings, and injection wells in known Kanaka Maoli burial grounds. The hui stands with other Kanaka Maoli groups pursuing this case to ensure that ‘iwi kūpuna are protected, safe, and at peace, and halt the Grand Wailea’s hotel expansion efforts due to numerous environmental violations and dismissal of Kanaka Maoli claims to defend the ‘iwi and traditional and customary practices.
