Website has info on cultural sites, iwi kupuna, ocean access

HONOLULU — A new website has been created to help the community statewide when dealing with cultural sites, iwi kupuna or ocean-access sites that are being threatened, destroyed or blocked.

Community members many times don’t know where to turn, and this website will help in that process of what to do. The website is kokuaneeded.org

The website is simple to understand and makes it easy to find the laws in place, identify the agencies or offices in charge to enforce the current law, and then actions community members can take to be active in the process to find answers and solutions, according to a press release.

It’s simply “What do I do?” and “Who do I contact?”

When looking for help when confronted with one of these issues, an enormous amount of time and energy are used trying to find the right answers or the right person to talk to, organizers of the website said in the release.

So much time is spent searching on the internet and making phone calls trying to get help. It can be such a frustrating process to the point where people often give up because they do not know what to do.

This website can guide community members in the right direction with a substantial amount of important information needed in one spot, kokuaneeded.org, to assist when dealing with one of these issues.

The website creation was supported by a grant from the O‘ahu League of Women Voters Education Fund.
