Mehana Kihoi Cross Examines:”Pwo” Navigator Baybayan

Hokulea “Pwo” Navigator Chad Kalepa Baybayan, who says he never learned any cultural practices regarding Mauna Kea from Nainoa Thompson or Papa Mau or anyone, asserts the TMT will not sacrilege the Mauna.
His teacher Nainoa Thompson has stated instead that Mauna Kea must be saved.

Baybayam confirmed under oath that he has a job with “no title” “representing” and “administrating” for the University of Hawaii who disallows any true practice of naked eye navigation because they enforce liability upon their “affiliates” like the Malama Honua voyage.

UH is party applicant for permit.

UH employs all “witnesses” thus far.

UH dictated the topics the “witnesses” submit as written direct testimony which cross exams are restricted and limited to.

UH is the owner of the sublease courting the TMT.

UH pays the “witnesses” to testify and while they are there on the stand.

UH pays for the lawyers and transcripts (the cost of which are more than $800 per hearing day)

UH is a public institution using public funds and managing so-called “public lands” for a PRIVATE CORPORATE, MAINLY FOREIGN, VENTURE.


We need you now more than ever.

Your kokua is the difference between whether human rights to be buried in our traditional burial grounds and the right to practice and maintain the sanctity of our most supremely sacred summit, will even be a discussion considered on this contested court case. 

The TMT in this case seeks to repermit their 20 story attrocity with 15,000 gallons of waste planned to be stored in the ground and then transported through almost every single endangered species environment to sea-level. 

We humbly ask, knowing that we are one among many who need kokua being here. We humbly ask you consider supporting all of us. We humbly ask that if you feel the burial rights of all humans are paramount- if you feel that a 20 story atrocity with 15,000 gallons of wastes stored underground is wrong in an endangered species environment and you want it to be stopped. Please considers and share our crowdfuding. We cannot do this without you:

One response to “Mehana Kihoi Cross Examines:”Pwo” Navigator Baybayan

  1. The fewer observatories we have in the world the more vulnerable all life on Earth is.
    Perhaps the whole reason Hawaiians have been gifted three of the best summits on Earth was to task Hawaiians with protecting our entire planet. Can you think of anything more noble?
    Please read these articles:

    “the asteroid was only about 16 feet (5 meters) in size and was detected at 9:45 UTC (2:45 a.m. PDT, 5:45 a.m. EDT) on Saturday, June 22, by the University of Hawaii’s ATLAS survey telescope on Maunaloa in Hawaii.”
