I Mana I Ka Wai: DHHL Water Law & Advocacy Trainings

Waikolu Valley, February 2018

Ka Huli Ao Center for Excellence in Native Hawaiian Law, in partnership with the Department of Hawaiian Home Lands, conducts water law and advocacy trainings for homestead communities across the paeʻāina.  The goal of the trainings is to provide a brief overview of Hawaiʻi’s legal framework governing water resource management and to discuss specific ways homestead communities can advocate for the pono use and protection of wai.  The I Mana i ka Wai trainings also seek to inform decisionmakers and the broader community about the history and rights of the Department of Hawaiian Home Lands and its beneficiaries.
