Ali`i Mana`o Nui Lanny Sinkin wrote this letter to First Lady Michelle Obama, noting her remarks about “how the United States stripped Native Americans of their culture and religion.” He points out:
“…we are in the middle of a major controversy in Hawai’i over the construction of a huge telescope on the sacred mountain of Mauna Kea. This controversy surfaced a long-standing issue of religious and cultural suppression in Hawai’i.“
Included in the package sent to First Lady Obama were the Temple of Lono document, and related AMN cover letter.
