Kauʻi Baumhofer – Inter-generational/historical trauma

The most dangerous time for our people... is institutional racism, which is when an institution, organization, or government has policies, practices, procedures or laws, that give or afford unearned privilege to one group or another, and that is exactly what is happening up on this mauna.

Jamaica Heoli Osorio – Wahine line

See how powerful the people of Hawaii can be, and we wield a real serious force, that we can push in whatever direction we want, and I really hope that we are not just looking back in history to this beautiful time when we all came together and then it stopped, but really look back and see "oh that was another beginning to how we got right here right now in whatever issue we were fighting then."

Mauna Kea Series – Noelani Ahia on Mauna Medic Healers Hui

Our intention is to create a nurturing space, a space of empowerment...a brave space for people to feel comfortable truth telling. One of the things we’ve noticed on the Mauna is there’s a lot of historical/cultural trauma going on. I hope that our wahine space is one of those spaces where wahine, māhū, kāne, everyone feels comfortable to come into a nurturing space where they can truth tell, share their own moolelo for how they got here.

Mauna Kea Series – Paul Punahele Kutzen on Hawaiʻi Hip Hop

Struggling in the hood, figuring out that I’d rather have the ʻāina back then eat spam and have EBT, hip hop solved my problems by expressing it, so I figured I might as well teach youth this craft that helped me learn discipline and bless me with a better outlook on life and help me navigate through struggle.

Mauna Kea Series – Marie Alohalani Brown and Hale Hōʻahu +Hale Hoʻolako

Mauna Kea Series – Kahala Johnson on Hale Mana Māhū

Outside of public-school sex education, learning about the sexuality, the gender, the sexual practices of my ancestors have helped me as a māhū to decolonize my body, my relationships, so Sex Eaducation is uncovering what is always conscious, we are constantly in a sexual relationship with the ʻāina.

Mauna Kea Series – Aliʻi Paul K. Neves on King Kamehameha Royal Order 1

They love us when we go along with what they want, but the minute the Hawaiian people say no to something, we are labeled protesters, anarchists...so we decided in 1996 to begin taking part in protecting/preserving Mauna Kea. We are Alii, and alii means servants or resource managers with a dab of holiness.

Dr. Noenoe Wong-Wilson

I was the first wahine, the first woman that was asked to stand up, so they put their handcuff/strips on me and walked me to the vehicle. There was silence, but there were tears, there were tears of love. The policemen wept, and we wept, and all of the young people wept in silence. And we asked to do that, and give every kupuna their day.
