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.
Kerry Ilima Long-Nā Leo Kakoʻo – Maunakea Media + Communications
From 2015 until now I’ve been continuing to organize students, train them on how to approach creating actions on campus, how to confront the university, how to confront President Lassner.
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
For too long our intimate connection with our environment has been interrupted by western ways of being and knowing that was imposed upon us... so that’s what’s so exciting about Puʻu Huluhulu, is that we are coming back and living in one with our environment and getting to know the elements and the changing of the seasons... and what is more Ea then that?
Mauna Kea Series – Mahealani Ahia on Hale Mana Wāhine
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 moʻōlelo for how they got here.
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 – Camille Kalama on Legal Observers
