Protect Mauna Kea: Alondra Park Hoʻolaulea

The Hawaiian community of Southern California gathered during the Ho’olaulea at Alondra Park on July 20th, 2019, in solidarity with Hawaiians fighting to preserve Mauna Kea. The demonstration began with sign waving on the street before a procession into the festival for prayer and a moment of silence.

Lono Kollars – Defenders of Mauna O Wakea are here supporting and standing in solidarity with all of our `Aina. Besides our march in solidarity, we had a booth open for two days to inform people about the intricacies of this issue and the untold truths and some untruths. The goal is to inform our community about the truth and for those who may not know, about spiritual the importance of this part of the `Aina. “He Hawai`i Mau Au a Mau,” Was our theme this years’ Ho`olaule`a. Wherever we go we are always Hawaiian “FOREVER”
