Demand a proper Section 106 Consultation for the PTA programmatic agreement

0 have signed. Let’s get to 200!

Pohakuloa Training Area has released a draft Programmatic Agreement without conducting a good faith Section 106 consultation to inform the process. The cultural resource staff at PTA refuses to acknowledge any possible traditional cultural properties (TCP), which is necessary for a legitimate consultation, and they have done a poor job of engaging Native Hawaiian individuals and organizations in the process. It is not the responsibility of the PTA cultural resource staff to decide what constitutes a TCP, they have to share whatever information they have so that interested parties can make that determination. They also have to make an effort to transcend the genocidal nature of their mission to reach out to people who have obviously been negatively impacted by their actions and find a way to have constructive dialogue.
