The site visitation will also allow Mike K. Lee, other beneficiaries, and interested public members an opportunity to present current (or past) information on ancient royal Hawaiian burials identification, and destruction of the karst system due to on-going construction by Haseko-Ewa Incorporated. Likewise, since Mr. Lee is recognized as an ancient cultural descendant by the OIBC, he will re-identify and locate his ancient royal Hawaiian family burials site in the area. If it rains on December 12, 2011, the special gathering will then take place the next day - December 13, 2011 - same time/same place. For further details, contact Mike K. Lee by telephone at 808-683-1954 or email him at .
