Indigenous Architecture Bills Advance (2/16/16)


SB 2946 and SB 3059 have passed out of the Senate Hawaiian Affairs Committee. The measures legalize native Hawaiian hale (grass huts) for farm worker and other types of housing. L-R: Nalani Tukuafu (hale builder), Kumu Francis Palani Sinenci (master hale builder from Hana), and Peter Kalawaia Moore (hale builder), testified in support of the bills. Here are links to the bills:
