"The meeting happened at Robert Keliihoomalu's residence.
"Twenty five plus hawaiians gathered at Robert and G-girl Keliihoomalu's residence to talk story about their feelings regarding the Hawaii Geothermal Project (HGP) with members of the visiting EIS team. Most of those who attended the meeting were the older Hawaiians or Kupunas of lower Puna. This meeting was organized by Daniel Makuakane to let the preparers of the EIS know that the Pele Defense Fund (PDF) does not speak for the Hawaiians of lower Puna and to allow a chance for these Hawaiian families to speak for themselves. The HGP was explained simply as '500MW of geothermal energy produced in lower Puna delivered by undersea cable to Oahu.' The requirement and purpose of the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) being prepared by the mainland guests was stated and reemphasized during the meeting."
