EnVision Maunakea’s Hui Ho‘olohe volunteer community advisory group had autonomous oversight throughout the EnVision Maunakea process. Throughout the year, the Hui Hoʻolohe met periodically to review completed ʻAha Kūkā session recordings, discuss the overall process and formulate a framework for the report. With completion of the 15 ʻAha Kūkā sessions, the Hui Ho‘olohe members prepared the written Report which reflects and articulates the manaʻo and varying perspectives shared by community members during the ʻAha Kūkā sessions. The Report was distributed to participants, officials and agencies with kūleana for Maunakea to inform future agreements, policies and regulatory actions that will deeply impact Maunakea.
Hui Ho‘olohe members demonstrated diverse knowledge of the mauna, a willingness to seek collaborative solutions and listen deeply without trying to influence the conversations. Each member committed fully to the process and to its integrity. They participated actively in crafting the format of EnVision Maunakea’s ‘Aha Kūkā facilitated listening sessions, and attended regular planning meetings to ensure EnVision Maunakea provided safe respectful spaces for productive discussions.
