A special meeting will be held by the Office of Hawaiian Affairs Thursday, and the Board of Trustees is seeking public input through a five-question anonymous survey.

This survey will provide OHA with further information for the Thursday meeting to assist in determining whether or not the board should revoke its previous approval in support of the Thirty Meter Telescope.

OHA says the special meeting is being called following “a large number of vocal opposition.”

Survey questions ask how potential OHA positions regarding TMT may affect the participant’s views regarding the organization’s mission to improve the conditions of Native Hawaiians

According to OHA, the survey results are to “serve only as a general indicator of people’s views for the OHA Board’s consideration.”


The survey can be taken one time per computer and is accessible here.
