KAMAHANA KEALOHA has been working as an organizer of a group of Kanaka Maoli representing several Hawaiian islands and a multi-ethnic group of supporters who are opposing the construction of a 30-meter telescope (TMT) atop Mauna Kea—also known as Mauna A Wakea—the most sacred place in the Hawaiian Islands for the Kanaka Maoli. The group, led by Lanakila Mangauil, a prominent cultural practitioner from Hawai’i Island, has formed a blockade at 9,000 feet above sea level at Mauna Kea. KAMAHANA is a cultural practitioner with family roots on Hawai’i Island.
“It’s 19 stories tall, which is like building a skyscraper on top of the mountain, a place that is being violated in many ways culturally, environmentally and spiritually. However, this struggle is about so much more. We are fighting against our erasure and ethnocide as well as the threat for all to our main water aquifer and endangered species conservation district.” (sacredmaunakea.wordpress.com)
