A Song for Sacred Mauna Kea: “Ka Piko Kaulana O Ka Aina” (The Famous summit of the land)

“We humbly ask the world and all those who hold the Mauna sacred to aid us in this struggle, which is for all of us and our future generations,” says Kealoha, facilitator of advocacy group Sacred Mauna Kea. “Please get to the Mauna and support the brave warriors who are protesting indefinitely at the 9000 foot level.”The group is requesting donations for flights to and from Hawaiʻi between the other Hawaiian islands as well as much-needed accommodations, including food, ground transportation and other essentials. Those interested in donating should go to our Go Fund Me site at: gofund.me/SacredMaunaKea

“We need your kokua (help) to continue our work on behalf of all concerned people of these islands,” says Kealoha.

“Or please support from where you are—here in the Islands or around the world,” says Kealoha. “I humbly offer my aloha and simple song for your needed charity that will be put 100 percent to good use. Mahalo.”

Translation:

This is to you, Poliʻahu
The Goddess who dwells in the cold of the Mountain.
Her beauty is displayed
As a blanket of white upon the Māmane trees

Poliahu on the sacred mountain
Secured by the surrounding snow
Heavenly snow of the Goddess
The Mamane caped in mist
The famous summit of all the land…
