Legal Notices


All persons having information concerning unmarked burials on a roughly 40-acre property (TMK: (3) 5-9-001:008) in Kahua 1st Ahupua’a, North Kohala District, Island of Hawai’i are hereby requested to contact Dr. Bob Rechtman, ASM Affiliates. (808) 969-6066, 507A E. Lanikaula St., Hilo, HI 96720, and/or Mr. Kea Calpito, DLNR-SHPD Burial Sites Program (808) 933-7653, 40 Po’okela St., Hilo, HI 96720.

There is an existing DLNR-SHPD approved Burial Treatment Plan that addresses some of these burials, but a proposed change in land use necessitates updating that plan and including additional burials that have been discovered subsequent to the approval of that plan.

Appropriate treatment of the remains will occur in accordance with HRS, Chapter 6E, respective to this burial site. The landowner intends to preserve the burial in place, following the preparation of a Burial Treatment Plan in consultation with any identified descendants and with the approval of the Hawai’i Island Burial Council. All interested parties should respond within thirty (30) days of this notice and provide information to DLNR-SHPD adequately demonstrating lineal descent from these specific Native Hawaiian remains, or cultural descent from ancestors once residing or buried in the same ahupua’a or moku.
