Archaelogical survey expected to delay Hawaii island oceanfront park

By Associated Press


An archaeological survey to search for possible Native Hawaiian graves is expected to delay plans to build an oceanfront park on a 784-acre parcel at Kawa Bay in Kau on Hawaii island.

West Hawaii Today reported Friday that the survey will put off the evictions for several Native Hawaiians who live in tents and wooden structures on the land and who say they have a right to stay.

County administrators haven’t evicted 70-year-old Abel Simeona Lui and a group of people who live with him despite a court order.

Neighbors have complained about Lui and his supporters, saying they have harassed people for hiking the land’s trails and taking children to the shoreline.

Lui claims his great-grandfather was given the land in a royal grant.
