Akina: Ethics Commission Upholds Participation in Suit Against Fake Indian Tribe
Dr. Keli`i Akina’s Status as OHA Trustee Upheld
Board meets in Executive Session
News Release from OHA Trustee Dr Kelii Akina, PhD January 4, 2016
HONOLULU, HI- Today, the Office of Hawaiian Affairs Board of Trustees convened in Executive Session to discuss Akina et al. v. State of Hawaii et al., a lawsuit in which Trustee Keli‘i Akina participated, along with four Native Hawaiian OHA beneficiaries and two other individuals, as plaintiffs against OHA. No adverse action was taken against Trustee Akina.
Prior to the Executive Session meeting, Trustee Akina presented a statement from Daniel Gluck, Executive Director and General Counsel for the Hawaii Ethics Commission. In it, Mr. Gluck wrote, “There is no conflict per se with Trustee Akina serving as President/CEO of a non-profit organization while also serving as an elected trustee of OHA.”
Mr. Gluck also stated, with regard to Trustee Akina's participation (as an OHA Trustee) in any matters involving the Akina lawsuit itself, “Again, we believe that there is not necessarily a per se conflict of interest… ” The full text of the statement from the Ethics Commission Executive Director was provided to Board Chair Rowena Akana for use in the Executive Session.
“Today was a productive day. The will of the voters who elected me was upheld,” Trustee Akina said. “While the content of the Executive Session is confidential, no adverse action was taken against me, and I am honored to continue to work alongside my fellow Trustees for the betterment of Native Hawaiians and all Hawaii.”
Keliʻi Akina, Ph.D., is a community leader who is known for the phrase he has coined, "E Hana Kākou" - Let's work together! Over the past several years as a public policy adviser at the legislative, congressional and international levels, Dr. Akina’s mission has been to preserve the Aloha Spirit by which native Hawaiians and people of all races are welcomed and encouraged to work together for a better future for all our keiki. He is president and CEO of the Grassroot Institute of Hawaii, a nonprofit, independent think tank.

A private company controlled by Office of Hawaiian Affairs (OHA) CEO Kamana’o Crabbe now possesses “sole title” to the 1,875 acres comprising Waimea Valley.
That’s the word from attorney Kimberly Greeley, “represent(ing) Hi’ilei Aloha, LLC, Ho’okele Pono, LLC, and Hi’ipaka LLC” in response to an open records request from Hawai’i Free Press.
Ownership of Waimea Valley, on Oahu's North Shore, was transferred to the Office of Hawaiian Affairs as part of a $14M preservation deal in 2006. When OHA transferred title to Hi’ipaka, LLC in 2007, it was believed that the company was completely owned and controlled by OHA.
Greeley admits the Uniform Information Practices Act HRS 92-F (UIPA) “defines a government ‘agency’ as a …corporation…owned and operated or managed by or on behalf of this State….” But in response to a December 21, 2016 letter from the Office of Information Practices, Greeley claims: “Although created by the Office of Hawaiian Affairs, Hi’ilei Aloha exists only as a separate, private, non-governmental entity…. There is no government control over Hi’ilei’s activities…. The Company’s management structure is completely independent of the Office of Hawaiian Affairs…. Most significantly, Hi’ilei’s activities are not a required function of any government.” Greeley continues: “Ho’okele Pono is similarly managed and operated privately….”
Greeley asserts: “Sole title to the land comprising Waimea Valley was transferred to Hi’ipaka LLC in 2007. The State does not own the valley nor any of Hi’ipaka’s other assets…. Nor is Hi’ipaka operated or managed by the State…. In sum, the State does not control or direct any of the Companies’ activities or business affairs and does not provide any funding for the Companies. The Companies activities are not a required function of any government agency. The Companies are not, therefore subject to the provisions of the UIPA.”
According to their DCCA business registration listings, the LLCs are managed by the same three individuals--Kamana'opono M Crabbe, Lisa Victor, and Hawley Iona—respectively the CEO, COO, and former CFO of OHA. An OHA source tells Hawai’i Free Press that the three are appointed Managers “in their capacity as OHA executives” rather than being named as individuals. This is supported by the LLCs Articles of Organization on file with DCCA and by a reference on the Hi’ilei Aloha website. The “Purpose” statement for Hi’ilei Aloha, LLC includes “supporting the mission of the Office of Hawaiian Affairs.” The Hi’ilei Aloha website lists several of the LLCs—including a fourth one, Ho‘okīpaipai LLC, as “subentit(ies) of the Office of Hawaiian Affairs.”
Greeley’s response did not directly reference a fifth OHA LLC, Hi’ipoi LLC, but notes that “Hi’ilei Aloha…was created in October of 2007, initially, to serve as an umbrella organization for management of Waimea Valley and Makaweli Poi Mill.”
Is Greeley lying or has a secret coup transferred several major OHA assets to Crabbe and his cronies?
Office of Hawaiian Affairs financial statements record $34M in expenses attributed to Hi’ilei Aloha and Hi’ipaka since 2009.
What else has been stolen via OHA’s LLC’s?
We intend to find out. Our open records request is for the complete check register for each of the LLCs from their date of inception. Clearly they have something to hide.

OHA trustee Peter Apo faces investigation into Kakaako Kickbacks
HNN: A state Ethics Commission investigation is looking into whether Office of Hawaiian Affairs trustee and former state lawmaker Peter Apo conducted his private business out of his taxpayer-funded OHA office….
Sources told Hawaii News Now that investigators with the Ethics Commission recently accessed OHA's computers to obtain Apo emails.
Hawaii News Now has obtained some of those emails from OHA computers.
They confirm communications between Apo, using his company's email address, and local architect Robert Iopa.
Iopa is the chairman of Apo's election committee and his firm is part of a team that has a $2.9 million dollar contract with OHA to master plan its Kakaako properties.
One of the emails, Apo appears to offer his services to a company affiliated with Iopa. (Kickbacks.) Iopa and the company DTL were applying for a multi-million dollar federal grant to upgrade Waikiki's infrastructure, beaches and reefs….

Governor David Ige and Hawaii Legislature force shelters to turn away homeless families
HNN: In the midst of a continuing homeless crisis new state rules are forcing shelters to begin turning away families.
Just five months after Waikiki Health's Next Step Shelter expanded its hours to place clients into permanent housing more quickly it's being forced to scale back its operations.
Currently the shelter can accommodate 230 people. But new state regulations aimed at providing clients with more private space and amenities will cut capacity to 125. Sources say all of the family cubicles will be lost. That would have served up to 105 people.
We're told Next Step has already stopped taking in new families. So workers can house the families who are there before changes go into effect February 1.
Spokesman Kimo Carvalho from the Institute for Human Services says it's in a similar situation.
"Yes we will have to turn people away," said Carvalho.
The family dorm at IHS already operates on a wait list. The facility can shelter 31 families. With the new contract they'll loose six units, space for up to 36 people….
This comes just weeks after the 80-bed Lighthouse shelter in Waipahu announced it would be impossible to operate under the new rules. It's now set to close at the end of January.
The only other shelter that serves families on Oahu is The Family Assessment Center in Kakaako. The temporary facility is only slated to operate through 2018….
The state is expected to announce its homeless shelter contracts next Thursday.
(The purpose of these rules is to increase the number of homeless on the streets and eliminate the justification for homeless sweeps so leftists can go back to using the homeless as icons of social guilt.)
