I signed the petition, “Governor David Y. Ige: Stop TMT Construction and Arrests of Mauna Kea Protectors.”
The indigenous people of Hawai’i view Mauna Kea as sacred. We should respect the people and the land.
Here’s the quick scoop from Indian Country Today Media Network.com:
Protestors — or Protectors, as they prefer to put it — are still fighting the fight against construction of the Thirty Meter Telescope atop sacred Mauna Kea in Hawaii. On Friday, seven were arrested. What might usually be filed away as an Indigenous issue has gotten a lot of attention from celebrities and their followers on social media thanks to a campaign started by actor Jason Momoa back in April. Momoa, Native Hawaiian, is one of today’s fastest rising stars, on the strength of his work inGame of Thrones and The Red Road, and his selection to be Aquaman in multiple future films.
See you along the Trail.
