Aloha, we are pleased to announce the formation of Perpetuating Unique Educational Opportunities, Inc., (“PUEO”) a non-profit dedicated to enhancing the educational opportunities of Hawaii’s youth and their communities.
Our board is comprised of native Hawaiians from the Hawaiian communities of the Hawaii Island. Our intent is based on a unifying vision of Hawaiian language, culture, science, technology and exploration. PUEO seeks to provide and enhance the opportunities for our children to continue the tradition of Hawaiian culture of exploration and learning to all members of our communities.
PUEO recognizes the importance of Hawaii’s children to seek knowledge from all sources in order to survive and thrive to create careers that sustain the survival of their needs and families in Hawaii. PUEO was born to assist our children in this noble and traditional journey.
As a matter of current affairs, the board believed that it was appropriate for our voice of vision and inclusiveness be heard. Because so much press has been focused on a voice that Native Hawaiians were against science and technology on Mauna Kea, the board felt that it was important to intervene in the current contested case for the sublease of lands to build the Thirty Meter Telescope (“TMT”) to dispel the myth that all Native Hawaiians opposed the project. Thus, on Monday May 16, at 11:00 a.m., we directed our attorneys to file for Intervention. PUEO hopes to bring a vision of clarity and unity to the process through the perpetuation of unique educational opportunities.
For more information on PUEO, the public is invited to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
