Hawaiian burials are the topic of both my radio show on KKCR today and the cover story I did for this week's Honolulu Weekly.
As you'll see in the article, the Brescia case has statewide implications. It also provides some answers to a comment left by a reader on a previous post about Brescia's house:
what was burial council / SHPD suppose to do in your understanding of the law? require monitoring, require data recovery, require reinternment? if your options for resolution are outside of the law, suggest changing the law.
--- can you bring more solutions to the table instead of just pointing out the glaring problems? IMO - no one here offers any solutions only anger, regret, loss, overall sense of doom and gloom or possibly the ever popular 'poor me' syndrome.
We'll be discussing some of those points on the radio today, and I'll touch on some of them in tomorrow's blog. The KKCR show airs from 4 until 5:30 or 6 p.m. on 90.9, 91.9 or 92.7 FM, or streaming live at kkcr.org. Call in with your questions and comments at 826-7771.
