Case Notes


  As the protections provided by this chapter to human skeletal remains and burial sites do not turn on religious distinctions, plaintiff's interest in protecting family members' unmarked burials and native Hawaiian burials were not extinguished by the burials being "Christian burials"; plaintiff thus had standing on plaintiff's claims under this chapter.  128 H. 455 (App.), 290 P.3d 525 (2012).

  Where plaintiff asserted that:  (1) plaintiff had family members buried on the church grounds; (2) plaintiff was a native Hawaiian and a recognized cultural descendant of the iwi found on the church grounds; (3) plaintiff had a traditional and customary practice of caring for iwi; (4) plaintiff was concerned that family members may be buried in unmarked burials on the church grounds; and (5) the disturbance of unmarked burials of family members or other cultural ancestors would cause plaintiff injury and harm, plaintiff had standing to raise claims under this chapter.  128 H. 455 (App.), 290 P.3d 525 (2012).
