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."
Presley Ah Mook Sang- President of Puʻuhuluhulu University
My manaʻolana for all of this is that people gain a sense of identity and they are able to be proud of who they are, where they come from..."
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 – 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 – 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.
Mauna Kea Series – Laʻakea Sanborn on Kanaka Rangers
Kanaka rangers is modeled after a program in Australia where the indigenous peoples of those lands… the way that they saw fit… where you are getting the native indigenous people of those lands to take on kuleana of stewardship, also legislation and enforcement to those resources to belong to those people.
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.
