First Baptist Church pastor John Crowder said he thought Zuckerberg was there to promote some charity or technological advances.
But this peace-making attempt appeared to fail, and led hundreds in Kauai to plan a march for Friday to protest the lawsuits as well as a six-foot wall Zuckerberg placed around the property.
Initially, Zuckerberg defended his decision to file the legal action, arguing that it was common practice in Hawaii and that some locals with ownership stakes didn't realize they had them, and would benefit from being paid for land they were not actively using.
The 14 parcels together total eight of the roughly 700 acres Zuckerberg owns, but the ancient law gives any direct family member of a parcel's original owner the right to enter the billionaire's otherwise private compound. These kuleana parcels, originally awarded to residents of Hawaii by Hawaiian government officials under the Kuleana Act of 1850, are all within the 700 acres Zuckerberg purchased two years ago for around $100 million.
Although he explained that he won´t be running for president, The Telegraph explained that when he was asked whether he was willing to start a political career in the future, Mark Zuckerberg didn't answer the question, which might suggest that even when it wouldn't be in the next four years, the Facebook CEO might become a well-known politician in the future.
He said in the post the estate is made up of several properties and while he worked with majority owners of the tracts to reach a fair deal, he had filed the actions to identify all the partial owners.

"People are furious down here with him", the protest's organizer, Joe Hart, told Business Insider on Thursday.
"I'm focused on building our community at Facebook and working on the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative", he said on Tuesday. State representative Kaniela Ing of Maui announced legislation to reform the quiet title process.
Last week, Zuckerberg insisted that "For most of these folks, they will now receive money for something they never even knew they had".
He continued, "The right path is to sit down and discuss how to best move forward".
The move to get the land through a unique Hawaii law angered locals and prompted a state lawmaker to propose a bill that would force Zuckerberg into mediation before buying real estate on Kauai.
"We want to make sure we are following a process that protects the interests of property owners, respects the traditions of native Hawaiians, and preserves the environment", he added.
