My thoughts expressed through my cousins post in regards to Culture and Business.
. Sometimes things like this happen in business, people steal names when the name is making money, a #Halau
operating in #Japan
is a business and it should be treated as such. It should be a wake up call to all of our people out there if you operate a business then you must protect that business because if you're making money chances are other people would like a piece as well. This should also be a lesson to #Hawaiians
that when you mix culture and business, don't be surprised if somebody makes a business decision on you, although a sneaky one, we cannot rely on our #culture
to protect your business, that's your #Kuleana
. Above is a pic of our trade name filed in Japan 2015. #Makaala #BusinessAndCultureIsAThinLine #ProtectYourBusiness #OurCultureGoingBeFine
