Coco Palms hearing erupts into court chaos
LIHUE — In a crowded courtroom Friday, proceedings continued in a civil case between a group of Native Hawaiians who say they rightfully own 17-acres of land in Wailua and a development company that wants to build a $175 million resort where Coco Palms once stood.

The “laws” and legal court system is based on deceit, lies and stolen lands both of native American Indians and Hawaiians in order to legitimize the continuance of this abuse towards those claiming their rightful presence, which was always there before the white men came in conquest. Just another form of genocide to exterminate the Hawaiians.
The problem is that these folks have no legal representation or assistance so their knowledge of how to correctly and productively prosecute their beliefs is non-existent. If these folks have any case at all, the Native Hawaiian Legal Corporation would be right there assisting them.
Ah yes my favorite German – Debra K. If you read the TGI comments you’ll know her and just how rational and thought-provoking her arguments are. She is not native Hawaiian at all – while doing a great disservice to those who are. Seriously guys, you need to unhitch yourselves from this ranting woman. I’ve tried to give her the benefit of doubt but all she does is live in a safe home in a safe neighborhood; uses all the roads and infrastructure we have here – then declare in her most angry and hateful voice how “this is not America”. Well Debra you are welcome to hop on the next plane and leave because your German heritage has no more claim to native Hawaiian’s land than a tourist straight off the plane from Munich.
Alrights Debra! Cool…
1874? When was it owned by their ancestors?
Any will left by the late estate? Queen Ruth. Any evidence like that would prove they owned the land. Do they have it on hand? Bishop Estate trustee.
Honestly, I never heard of County of Kaua’i. Now this?
I like hula too. So I’m giving the Hawaiians that much. Culture.
A lot of perverts in county council. That is why. Mayor too.
Waste of taxpayer money again, and again with these clowns. Was Deb wearing her yellow wig and red nose?
Noa is of Chinese heritage and claims the ancestral rights to Land of the late King Kaumualii of Kauai, in which he has NO genetic ties to. He is born on Oahu from his not so mentally sane father and a mother who tirelessly supports him til this day. Any court records and genealogical land titles relative to Coco Palms will not be respectfully matched with the genealogical records presented by Noa Mau-Espiritu.

This is not fighting for one’s rights or against an occupation. It is ENTERTAINMENT! These unemployed takers have nothing better or productive to do but to get buzzed, go make trouble and hopefully get their faces in the newspaper. This is ALL they have in life. Sad. Using the tactics they espouse, they know they will accomplish nothing but a little notoriety within their small community and maybe get a few outsiders like Cowden to pander to them. There are Native Hawaiians on Oahu who are seriously working via the legal system to right the wrongs they perceive were perpetrated on them, but that’s not entertaining for this bunch. Yawn…..zzzz.
