KAMEHAMEHA SCHOOLS
ADMISSION POLICY


Rallies to protest ruling
on Hawaiians

Kamehameha Schools has scheduled events throughout Hawaii today to rally support as it fights to maintain its Hawaiians-only admission policy.

In Honolulu a unity rally was set for 8 a.m. on the grounds of Iolani Palace, followed by a march to Mauna 'Ala, the royal mausoleum, in Nuuanu.

Events on other islands include:

» On Maui, a rally and sign-waving from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. at Maui Community College.
» On the Big Island, a prayer service fellowship from 9 to 10 a.m. in the Koai'a Gymnasium of the Kamehameha Schools campus in East Hawaii, and a 10:30 a.m. march through Kailua in West Hawaii.
» On Kauai, a 4 p.m. informational meeting at the King Kaumuali'i Elementary School cafeteria, followed by a rally.
» On Molokai, an informational meeting, pule and mele at 4:30 p.m. at the Kulana 'Oiwi Halau.

On Tuesday a panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit of Appeals struck down Kamehameha's admission practice as race-based and unlawful. The school plans to appeal the ruling.

The case involves an unidentified non-Hawaiian boy who has been trying to enroll in Kamehameha since finishing ninth grade two years ago.
