Come to understand the focus of our kapu aloha – a synonym for ahimsa. Because of the needs of our time, and the distortion of stories flying around the globe, come to listen to what is really happening to those who have been dedicated to aloha ʻāina our whole lives and who are now lending this focus to Maunakea. –Manulani Aluli Meyer
