Guess i am so excited about the new learning center coming to makaha for native Hawaiians thru the donation of land back to the rightful Hawaiian owners that i am wondering if this beautiful property (our lady of keaau)that now belongs to a religious group might be given back to the native hawaiians to be used as a community for homeless native hawaiian families..
(i think the church needs to return all the properties they took from native Hawaiians)

I understand what you are saying; however, what you fail to identify is ALL the good work that is done by the church for homeless Hawaiians and many countless others who may not otherwise receive it. We can't expect to give back all the lands to Hawaiians anymore than we can give back the United States' lands to the Native Americans. What you need to remember is that these lands DO NOT belong to ANY people. We are ALL One! These lands belong to our creator-please be mindful of that instead of being hurtful to others. Mahalo!

The thing is this religious group did not take this property from the Hawaiian people, but purchased it from our own First Hawaiian Bank. These beautiful Nuns use this facility to feed our homeless and the Franciscan Nuns take care of our people's medical needs when they cannot afford it without judging. We need to learn from them.
