What Is the Best Future for Kaho‘olawe?


Kaho‘olawe, an island that many Hawaiians hold as sacred, has been a cultural and political touchstone since the 1970s. When the U.S. military handed over control of Kaho‘olawe to the state of Hawai‘i, unexploded bombs and erosion left a barren landscape that many to this day are working to replant and restore. Today, Kaho‘olawe waits to be transferred to a Native Hawaiian entity to manage the island, but funding for the clean-up is fast running out. The Legislature has approved $2 million to help continue the restoration of Kaho‘olawe, but will it be enough?
