Aloha Mauna Kea Tribute

To our fellow petitioners and to all who were at the Aloha Mauna a Wakea Rally and Hearing on February 12, 2013 in Hilo, HawaiʻI, my family expresses our heartfelt gratitude to each of you. We have never felt more held in the sacred circle then at that moment. To all who sounded your drums with us, lifted your voices with us, nourished us, protected and stood by us, held the space for us, put your hands up in the air for us, supported and loved us, words could never ever convey the feeling we have in our hearts because of all of you! Aloha deep down to the core… To all of our Facebook ʻOhana and the Idle No More Movement who are always sending in your confirmations of support.. so much aloha for all of you.. your prayers are felt daily ! me ke aloha nui Pua, Kalani, Hawane and Kapulei. If you have thoughts to share about our sacred mountain, please consider submitting a Letter to the Editor to either the West Hawai’i or the Tribune Herald Newspapers. Every voice, every thought is necessary right now. The Thirty Meter Telescope 18 stories, 8 acres is not right! Mauna a Wakea is still sacred!
