An educational event on the status of native burials, particularly within the Maui Lani development, will take place this evening at Owa—the Maui Lani Shopping Center area.  The Ua Noho Au Kupa Hoʻolauleʻa, honoring iwi kupuna (ancestors), is hosted by the group Hui Pono Ike Kanawai from 6 p.m. to midnight on Friday, April 24, 2015.
