Edward Halealoha Ayau confronted myself and Lisa Malakaua after our speech at the University of Hawaii Board of Regents meeting November 6th 2019, he and I tried to debate, but Edward Halealoha Ayau would not let me have a word in edgewise, he kept yelling over me “STOLEN LANDS”, so at the end, he took my information, and offered to debate me. I accepted and I await his formal invitation.
In the meantime, in case he does not follow through. I have made this video to address his concerns during a meeting with DHHL September 19th 2019, where Edward Halealoha Ayau spoke and revealed some technical details that he says supports his position.
This is the link to Big Island Video News regarding his testimony to DHHL commission.
In response to him, I am going to list my sources that I used in the video here in the description.

Office of Hawaiian Affairs STILL getting money from the general fund (all tax payers, even those who are NOT beneficaries)
A write up about our testimony at Big Island video News.
Lisa Malakaua, a resident of Panaʻewa, spoke in favor of moving forward with the TMT project. With Ryan Thompson of Disruptarian Radio by her side, Malakaua spent her time trying to debunk a number of kiaʻi claims over the Mauna Kea Access Road, Hawaiian Home Lands, and the Hawaiian Kingdom. “They have no intention of leaving that access road, no matter how long it takes,” Malakaua said. “I believe they will continue to balk at every attempt in resolving this matter and I also believe they are going to continue using every stalling tactic in order to cause further delays.”
The testimony riled the crowd. Malakaua and Thompson were later involved in a verbal confrontation with TMT opponents outside the UH Performing Arts Center, which was video recorded from various angles, resulting in an apparent challenge between Thompson and Edward Halealoha Ayau to debate the issue of Mauna Kea Access Road jurisdiction.
