Adolescents can connect deeply with world events and social conflicts—particularly when they see themselves connected to it—and often want to help in any way they can. #maunakea #protectmaunakea #middleschoolteachers #middleschoolsports #middleschoolcoach #adolescents #comic #comics #comicstrip #educomics #educomix #illustration #artistsoninstagram

#maunakea this submerged highest mountain in the world volcano is sacred. There is no reason to build anything that we have a million of@already on something considered very important to Hawaiian natives. Why must technology disrespect@the Hawaiian culture. Hasn’t western civilization done enough to the people@the kind people of Hawaii? I lived north shore for a few years and was already disappointed with how the locals had been and continue to be driven out of what is rightfully their homes and now one more thing. This isn’t just one more thing it’s completely a disrespect to Hawaiians and the Hawaiian culture. This isn’t about air bnb take over its soooo much deeper, Sacred and Important than that. #protectmaunakea #protectmaunakea #maunakea #telescopesareeverywhere #disrespectful #notyoursacredjourney #thepeopleknow #protectmaunakea #istandwithmaunakea #❤️ if you don’t that dormant volcano will erupt because you’re messing with an undeniable force. Trust me any extra terrestrial you may discover with these huge telescopes are out there anyway and when they want to be seen they won’t want you morons building a huge telescope on a SACRED GROUND To look for them. They’ve already been here. ALOT. When they are ready they will come. Doing this won’t make them any happier. They know what’s up. Sacred is sacred to all forms of life. #protectmaunakea #respecthawaii #respecttheculture #nowgo any of us that have ever been blessed enough to call@Hawaii our home, understand and respect the way of life. I had a lot of love living Hawaii. I would give it back in a heartbeat❤️🌈🌈🌈🤙🏽

Took the ʻohana up Maunakea last week to support our kūpuna, our lāhui, and also to teach the keiki to stand for what is pono. E mālama ʻia nā pono o ka ʻaina e na ʻōpio (The traditions of the land are perpetuated by its youth). #protectmaunakea #kūkiʻaimauna #wearemaunakea #aʻoletmt #kapualoha #protectorsnotprotesters

We mālama our Mauna Loa, Hualālai, and Mauna Kea, for they provide us water, food, and life. They are the oldest amongst us and can touch the heavens. We will forever protect them from those who choose to destroy, disrespect, and desecrate. We are the protectors of the Mauna. #uluhaoohualalai #kukiaimauna #protectmaunakea #we❤️maunakea

If you know or don’t know what is happening on the island of Hawai’i, please allow me to share my own experience as I volunteered my time these past three days and went to show my support to the protectors, the Kia’i of Mauna Kea. Mauna Kea is a sacred place to not only the people of Hawai’i but to all of us indigenous people of cultures around the world who share in that connection with the energy and our love of the land, our Aina, our Pachamama, our Mother Earth. There is so much leading up to this last stand to stop this telescope from being built and what it will do to this sacred place if we don’t care. Please read the article link below as it explains in more detail. So for me, when I was there, what I saw and experienced was love and respect. Love of culture and love for the land. A community of many people coming together to support and protect this sacred Mountain. The Kupuna (elders) who are standing in the frontlines have set the tone everyday and they are reminding everyone to Kapu Aloha (act with kindness, love and empathy). There is now a university where classes about culture and more are being taught for free. There are many people coming to volunteer where they can. I went there along with Kelvin, friends Maranda and Jacqui. We helped in the kitchen where we cooked and helped prepare meals from donated foods by many people who come to the Mauna everyday. We also helped serve some of this food to everyone there. There were thousands of people that have come to support the Kia’i of the Mauna in just the past three days. I met people from Oahu, where I live, along with others from other islands coming to volunteer. So when you see those surveys that say that more are supporting the TMT in the Hawaiian islands, I will ask you to please find some time to come to the Mauna and see for yourself. We are not against science, we are here to protect this sacred place from further desecration. Kū Kia’i Mauna! We are Maunakea! #wearemaunakea #protectmaunakea #kukiaimauna #sacred #kapualoha #alohaaina #luckywelivehawaii https://www.resilience.org/stories/2019-08-15/mauna-kea-what-it-is-why-it-is-happening-and-why-we-all-should-be-paying-attention/

Here is the story behind my dress for everyone asking ❤️. ONE WEEK OUT from the Miss Universe 2019 Nz Grand Final and I was brainstorming with my Aunty Mahinaarangi Smith and Aunty Heidi Waitere about a dress for the night. Aunty Mahinaarangi is a gun at Korowai. Aunty Heidi is a gun at dress making. Me? Well I’m a gun at wearing dresses I think😂🤦🏽‍♀️. Put us all together than BOOOOOM!!!! ❤️🖤❤️🖤 “Mā pango, mā whero ka oti ai te mahi” The kaupapa I wanted to represent through my dress was Ihumātao and Maunga Kea. The kaupapa of being KAITIAKI for our whenua and our culture, not only for Māori but all indigenous people. #protectorsnotprotesters What better way to fight this battle with our Atua RONGO, just by walking around and taking photos was the hugest STATEMENT ever! #tinorangatiratanga Our koha to the kaupapa! #raisingawareness #indigenouspeople #protectmaunakea #protectihumātao #maunakea #ihumātao #maoridesigners #korowaidress - Harlem-Cruz Atarangi Ihaia @harlaani

Super Soul Sunday reflections... How cute is this kid?! 🐐 & JJ🧒🏻 & my baby cuzzie too👩🏻! Lol! • • • We love cuzzie time always, but what a special treat to visit her on Maui! And with her 4-legged loves too!🐑🐑🐐🐕 Upcountry Aloha at its finest! Complete with stunning views in every direction... Love you, Cuzzie! Mahalo for da Aloha hospitality as well as the new Cuban coffee obsession, @liqourshackgrinds fix • • • If you love Hawai'i too, please take a moment to offer support to the indigenous people of the islands as they #protectmaunakea This is a pivotal moment in history. Send your heart and your strength to them now. And maybe a prayer for clarity in the hearts and minds of the people attempting desecration over preservation. They need to make a different choice. Why not just build elsewhere? Seems like a simple enough solution... #prayformaunakea #mauinokaoi #makawao #maui #hawaii #genetics #hapa #latergram #lasvegasmoms #lasvegaskids #vegasborn #lasvegaslocals #9thisland #onvacation #flashback #throwback #latergram #ilovehawaii

Aloha, there is a situation I would like to make known to you all. - You've probably heard that the TIO has submitted a lease permit for the Canary Islands but don't doubt their desire to still want Mauna Kea for TMT. Governor Ige has extended the TMT lease two years (2021). Canada's involvement in TMT is both through government and private industry. There are two critical components Canada is supplying TMT, the adaptive optics system (NFIRAOS) and the Calotte dome enclosure. Without AO which allows the telescope to see past our atmosphere and the dome which protects the telescope, TMT can't operate. - For the first time in Canada we have a Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, who is taking indigenous rights more seriously. In a statement on indigenous rights Justin Trudeau said the following: - "The Government of Canada must make the recognition and implementation of rights the basis for all relations between Indigenous Peoples and the federal government." - https://pm.gc.ca/en/news/news-releases/2018/02/14/government-canada-create-recognition-and-implementation-rights - This should apply to the rights of Hawaiians in the handling of the TMT construction on Mauna Kea and the Government of Canada's involvement through the National Research Council. - So please, let our Prime Minister know how you feel. Ask him to support the relocation of TMT on a site that does not conflict with indigenous peoples. It just takes one partner to change their mind, let it be Canada. - Twitter @JustinTrudeau Instagram @justinpjtrudeau - Official Contact https://pm.gc.ca/en/connect/contact - TMT Canadian Board Member greg.fahlman@nrc-cnrc.gc.ca - For Hawaiians Perspective  http://kanaeokana.net #kanaeokana @kanaeokana - #space #discovery #hubbletelescope #astronomy #canada #toronto #3northstarscan #love #sacred #spaceexploration #spacetelescope #vancouver #trudeauhelpmaunakea #protectmaunakea #gregstoptmtmaunakea #kūkia’imauna #maunaready #maunamajority #aloha #maunakea #alohaaina #aoletmt #kapualoha #hawaii  #justintrudeau #cbc #radiocanada

I’ve been contemplating the state of the earth and all of its people these past few weeks. I feel as if though we are at a major crossroad in human history. I want to focus my #mana solely upon the world as it can be, where we all realize we are #one We need to learn from history, we need to let go of our focus on power and money. These are parts of the game humans created to distract us from what has true value.

It’s been a busy weekend since I landed in the battleground state of Iowa. Working on behalf of the Native vote with other fellow grassroots organizers, it’s been an incredible experience. We are truly helping to make history with this first-ever Native Presidential Candidate Forum. ______ In Oklahoma, tribes contribute $13 billion to the state and only represent 13% of the population...that’s basically us pulling more than our weight! This is important to recognize given the recent dialogue surrounding the status of the upcoming State-Tribal Gaming Compacts. ______ It has been fun to reconnect and meet new folks even with all the prep work involved. S/O to Mark Trahant & team at @indiancountrytoday for all their hard work, super in awe of shero Ruth Buffalo ND-HD 27 Representative @ruth4nd, mingling with fellow @ncaied 40 Under 40 recipient @illmaddocks, getting to listen to one of @bunkhaus favy drum groups Elk Soldier, getting to hear community members at Sioux City’s Urban Native Center & was given the chance to share about the power of the #nativevote, and finally running into Aunty @repdebhaaland (love our sneaker game!) after visiting with Irari Colleen (keen parking skills). And this is the calm before the storm...✌🏽💖✊🏽 #nativevote2020 #nativeforum #sherepresents #protecther #mmiw #mmip #40under40 #boyswithbraids #longhairdontcare #protectmaunakea #nokxl #rezpectsovereignty

We went up and spent some quality time with some quality people in the most amazing place. Today the parents and I took a last minute visit to the Mauna. We attended some classes at the @puuhuluhulu university, had some genuine connections with people, and made sure to show our support for this important cause for our culture. We learned a lot today and will be back very soon! . 🤙🏽 #protectmaunakea #aoletmt #wearemaunakea #maunakea @protectmaunakea 🔺

🔺🔺🔺Let me be clear about this and any of my posts about TMT: I do not oppose science and its advancements. I do however, oppose the construction atop Mauna Kea.🔺🔺🔺 Kū Kiaʻi Mauna!!! “I don’t expect you to speak a language that your tongue has never tasted, A language that we fought for that was stolen from my kūpuna’s lips. • I don’t expect you to feel the ocean through your veins being pushed and pulled by the moons smile each night, The ocean that my kūpuna used to hānau and hānai our people. • I don’t expect you to hear the wind sing late at night dancing with the aumoe, The same wind that carried my peoples voices over generations. • I don’t expect you to fall in love with the rain, her silhouette cradling every curve of this earth, giving life, The same rain that has fed this ʻāina from before your foot had touched this soil. • So no, I don’t expect you to see her, Mauna ā Wākea, for who she truly is. I don’t expect you to feel her when you walk all over her to “assess her land”, • I don’t expect you to even feel an ounce of connection that was passed down through ʻiewe from ʻohana to ʻohana. • But I do expect you to RESPECT her. • You prostitute her height for your “scientific advancement” but ignore the advancement of science she provided (and provides) for ka lāhui o Hawaiʻi. • You degrade her kino for your machines and place concrete cuffs on her body so she may never dance again all in the name of “science” but forgot that her protectors were scientists long before you came. • You disrespect her voice, by speaking for her when you don’t know her moʻokūʻauhau. You speak for her when her inoa tastes different on your tongue. You speak for her with your microphones in front of your cameras when the real voices are echoing through her cracks and crevices. • I do not expect you to feel her, to see her, to worship her- but I do expect you to respect her and the protectors trying to save what’s left of her as she cries out for help. • Mauna Kea has done enough for your telescopes. Let her breath. Let her kino dance freely to the sound of her protectors.“ #protectmaunakea #aloha’aina

MEXICA SOLIDARITY WITH MAUNA KEA OHANA✊🏾🏔🌌 If you have ever stood for something sacred to you and you know deep in your whole heart that you would whole heartedly give your life to that which is sacred to you then you can relate to what our Hawaiian relatives are going through to #protectmaunakea Like my aunty Pua says, stand wherever you are for that which you hold dear and let us remain in alignment with the sacredness of this world. Let us remain connected, together, across oceans and continents Across languages and cultures, to hold this world together for the generations that are yet to come. #defendthesacred #aoletmt #divestfromdestruction
