Review for Pacific Cultural Institute, Kaneohe, HI, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

Loia Fiaui is well-known in the Samoan/Hawaiian community as someone who takes advantage of his own people. He is incompetent and incapable of uttering a word of truth. He has set up this organization as a country hideaway for himself and his girlfriend; his cancer-stricken wife resides in the same district. He and the entire Board of Directors are frauds. There is no infrastructure, no record-keeping system, no paperwork of any kind to indicate a non-profit operation. Fiaui also claims to be a Ph.D., however trascripts in this regard are non-existent. Fiaui and former Board member Fituina Tuanaetau were pursuing a FOR PROFIT opportunity for themselves.
