State attempting to Control Hawaiian religious/spiritual practice

Tuesday, Oct. 4th from 10-12 Office of Mauna Kea Management (OMKM) meeting at Institute for Astronomy 640 North Aohoku St. off Komohana just above Imiloa Astronomy.

This OMKM meeting is about several things but key are proposed new rules/guidelines about cultural features, offerings, building of ahu, etc.  It is using “CULTURE” to control traditional religious practice.  It appears to me they are using the word “culture” to make rules and regulations that they couldn’t get away with if they used the term “religious or spiritual.”  Government interfering in religious practice would be ruled unconstitutional.

Please pass the word and encourage people to attend.  Mahalo.
