|Public Meeting: Janet Six
Save Honolua Coalition
Tonight's speaker was Janet Six, an Industrial Archaeologist. Janet gave a very informative presentation about how the monochronistic cropping practices done by plantation owners has done much damage to our interconnected ecosystem and how, to the detriment of our society, they have disregarded Hawaiians' water rights. She explained the authentic definition of ahupua'a and her successful efforts at going up against Big Island plantation owner C. Brewer and helping the County of Hawai'i to acquire 225 acres of land in Honu'apo for a public park. Janet Six is one of the good Archaeologists out there today and she has offered her services to us for free-to help get this area designated as an archaeological reserve.
