US Navy archaeologists maintain that these were not Hawaiian pre-contact structures. They were bulldozed to clear lead shotgun pellets from an area used as a trap and skeet shooting range - even though they lay at the far periphery, and even though the area was designated as one of the very last preserves for the endangered Oʻahu akoko plant. In this image a damaged platform lies adjacent to an intact platform - shown in another image in this album.
