Hawaiian Group Clashes with State Over Waimanalo Land
A group of Native Hawaiians claiming to be descendants of King Kamehameha I is headed for a clash with the state -- the second time in two years. The group had been evicted from a 5 acre parcel in Waimanalo, after a judge threw out their claims and blocked them from filing frivolous suits. The land is in an Agricultural park which the state has unsuccessfully tried to lease out for almost a decade and when the group moved in.
The Conversation's Catherine Cruz talked with Laura Thielen to find out more about the case.
