New Zealand: A Case Study For Hawai‘i

"We should tap into some Hawai'i-based Kiwis with deep understandings of both Hawai'i and New Zealand — people like East-West Center vice president Karena Lyons, who is the former New Zealand ambassador to several Micronesian countries, or Polynesian Cultural Center president Alfred Grace, first Maori head of PCC, and director Seamus Fitzgerald, Maori cultural specialist and BYU-Hawai'i lecturer, among others. This would help us identify cues from New Zealand on how to smartly navigate our reopening process."
