Fourth day of Native Hawaiians protecting of sacred land and yet action is not slowing down

Kanaka Maoli, Native Hawaiians, are peacefully protesting the construction of a Thirty Meter Telescope on their sacred site, Mauna Kea. The project was scheduled to begin on July 15.

Nearly a thousand opponents closed off the only road that leads to the summit of their sacred site, Mauna Kea, over the weekend.

Thirty-three demonstrators, mostly elders, or kupuna, have been arrested by police because they were blocking the road.
