But the captain did say he had
taken “intentional naps” before.
After undergoing a sleep evaluation, he was diagnosed with
“severe obstructive sleep apnea,” which his doctor said
could lead to “significant fatigue.”
The captain also reported
feeling “burnt out” in recent
months. The captain lived in
Missouri and had been based in
Tennessee, before taking a temporary assignment in Kahului
in January. The assignment was
supposed to last until Feb. 9,
but was extended by 28 days.

that he and his co-pilot inadvertently fell asleep about 9:33
a.m. — 17 minutes after take-off
from Honolulu. The two were
suspended and later fired.
The report says the flight
crew had been experiencing
“operational stressors” before
the incident, including being assigned an aircraft with a “faulty
flight management system” the
day before. Also, on the day of
the flight, the crew started 30
minutes late because of a scheduling error. That meant that the

nomic base,” Khan said. “We’d
like to have a decision made by
the Hawaiian nation as to what
happens to those lands.”
Others at the rally such as
Takamine and Clifford Hashimoto, aliçi nui for the Royal Order,
said they do not believe the state
should sell or transfer ceded
lands — period.
Hashimoto, in a statement read
by Royal Order spokesman
William Souza, said “the fall of
the Crown Lands will result in
the final solution of Hawaiians.
The actions of the Old Order are
Former OHA Trustee Adelaide
“Frenchy” DeSoto said ceded
lands should be used to benefit
Native Hawaiians by providing
them housing and health services.
“Maybe our people don’t have
to be on their knees all the time
begging,” DeSoto said.
Native Hawaiian rights attorney Dexter Kaiama took issue
with the state’s position that
Hawaiians may have a “moral”
but not “legal” high ground when
it comes to ceded lands.
Rather than have a U.S. court
decide what happens to ceded
lands, “ask your country to submit itself to the international
courts,” Kaiama said.
The Lingle administration has
insisted that it has and will continue to support Native Hawaiian
causes and that its appeal to the
U.S. Supreme Court, which is being backed by a brief supporting
the appeal by 29 other states,
does nothing to diminish that.
Attorney General Mark Bennett, after yesterday’s rally, also
reiterated his view that the state’s
position on the case has not
changed since it was filed against

the Cayetano administration in
The original lawsuits brought
by four Native Hawaiians and
the Office of Hawaiian Affairs,
and then later joined, sought to
temporarily halt the sale of about
1,500 acres in Lahaina and Kona
to private interests to finance affordable-housing projects for
moderate- and low-income families regardless of whether they
have Hawaiian blood, until
Hawaiian claims to the lands had
been resolved.
“We continue to believe that
the Hawai‘i Supreme Court’s decision was legally incorrect and
that it’s our responsibility to ask
the U.S. Supreme Court to reverse the decision because we
believe it was fundamentally,
legally incorrect,” Bennett said.
The Lingle administration be-
lieves the issues raised by Native Hawaiian groups should be
addressed by the legislative
branch of government, he said.
That’s why both he and Lingle
have lobbied hard for Congressional passage of the Akaka bill,
which creates a process that
leads to federal recognition of a
Native Hawaiian government entity.
There is no inconsistency in
arguing that ceded lands are the
managerial jurisdiction of the
state government while lobbying for the Akaka bill, he said.
Some of the groups at yesterday’s rally oppose the Akaka bill
while others support it.
Ceded lands are the 1.2 million
acres once owned by the Hawaiian government and subsequently taken over by the U.S.
as a result of the 1898 annexa-
tion. Those lands were then
passed to the state and designated for five purposes, including
but not exclusively for the betterment of Native Hawaiians.
They make up a bulk of stateowned lands and 29 percent of
the state’s land mass.
Takamine said her group
planned yesterday’s rally to coincide with the Christmas vacation visit by President-elect
Barack Obama in hopes in gaining his attention on the matter.
Takamine’s group is planning
a larger event that will take place
in Waikïkï on Jan. 17, the anniversary of the 1893 overthrow
of Liliu‘okalani, Hawai‘i’s last
