Aloha all,

On Thursday, May 6th a Kahea was held at the Wai`anae `Olelo Community Media Center (CMC) with a large attendance and overwhelming community support to reinstate Kawika Naho`opi`i as the Manager there. At the meeting Keali`i Lopez, President and CEO ‘Ōlelo Community Media, stated that the Wai`anae CMC was the flagship of `Olelo. Yet the one who is responsible for rallying the community to achieve this status and national recognition, Kawika Naho`opi`i, was removed as Manager on April 30, 2010, and she said that he would not be reinstated.

After that Kahea many in the community decided to have a rally to support Kawika’s reinstatement at the Wai`anae Boat Harbor on Saturday, May 8th at 10 AM. Local newspapers and TV stations are invited to cover the event.
Please go to the rally and forward this email to those who support this cause.
