December 7, 2015 @ 7:30 pm

Native Hawaiians and Aboriginal Australians resist threats to their sacred places in a growing international movement to defend human rights and protect the environment.

In HawaIi, indigenous ecological and spiritual practices are used to restore the sacred island of Kaho`olawe after 50 years of military use as a bombing range. Featuring Patrick Dodson (Yawuru), Emmett Aluli and Davianna McGregor (Hawaii) and Barry Lopez.

Special Guests Attending: Kumu Hula instructor Mikilani Young.

Mikilani Young carries on the teachings of Hula and the Hawaiian culture. Mikilani will call in a chant/hula/prayer for Mauna Kea and present on the Experimental Seabed Mining in the Pacific as well as the actions currently going on at Mauna Kea.
