Mauna Kea

For decades, environmentalists and cultural practitioners have long fought to protect Mauna Kea, one of Hawaii's most sacred sites and fragile ecosystems, from the ongoing desecration and destruction led by the University of Hawaii. This page is to help the public learn more about the struggle and identify ways to help support the protection of this important wahi kapu (sacred place) and stop the destruction.

Kū‘ē (Resist)

Be on the mauna! The kia‘i need more people there on the ground to support this effort.

If you cannot be on the mauna, there are still important ways to kū‘ē. Call or email the project funders to ask them to put a stop to this desecration. You can also use social media to help bring awareness to this movement.
