In November, GovNeil Abercrombie and OHA announced they had reached a tentative settlement agreement on all claims from through July 1, 2012. The agreement would give OHA land in Kakaako, near the waterfront parkIn exchange, OHA will wave all ceded land claims from 1978 through June. Ceded lands, once owned by the Hawaiian monarchy, are now held in trust by the state for the benefit of Native Hawaiians and the general public. OHA’s current share of ceded lands receipts is about $15.1 million a year. The Legislature, which must approve the approval, began discussing the settlement Monday.
