WE ARE MAUNA KEA - JASON MOMOA
Jason Momoa visits Mauna Kea with his extended family & shares the kupuna and protectors feelings on why they don't want the Thirty Metre Telescope built on Mauna Kea.
"It's not about the telescope, it's not about science, it's about sacred land. It's about kanaka maoli having the right to determine for themselves how our sacred places should be protected. Ultimately this is a human rights issue - that we are a real people, we have a real history, we have a real culture, we have a real language, we have a real religion and we need to be recognised as such ...
These are also crown lands that were never ceded to the United States of America, but they were seized, they were taken away - we've never consented to the taking of these lands ..." - Kaho'okahe Kanuha
