project approved yet and can not give them money but they wanted to have their ceremony, so we went. They are excited to have water. It was Jan.4, 2014 They were anxious to greet us with leis and treated us like royalty. It was an interesting ceremony. They had someone bless us with tiki twice and bless the ground and do prayers and symbolic ceremony that invites the Hindu Gods to bless this water project. Afterwards they fed us lunch.
