Over the course of summer 2019, hula students and supporters of the kiaʻi at Mauna Kea came together right across Europe to release a video as #EUROPEFORMAUNAKEA.
Participating from the UK were Hawaiian Hula UK and London School of Hula and Ori in London, Jo up in Scotland, and Maile from Hālau Hula O Mānoa, Paris, who visited Brighton to perform in tribute to Princess Kaʻiulani.
The wave of standing together for Mauna Kea swept across the ocean, all the way from Hawaiʻi to Europe.
We dance as one.
We stand as one.
Mahalo a nui loa to Frank Kawaikapuokalani Hewett for sharing his composition and choreography and to Waipuna for sharing their music.
And to all who were part of this project.
Ku Kia’i Mauna ! 🔺
Europe was also mentioned on Hawaii News Now as part of the “mauna to mauna” movement [02:00]:
