Mauna Kea is a dormant volcano on the island of Hawaii. Its peak is 4,207.3 meters (13,796 feet) above sea level, making it the highest point in the Pacific Ocean.
Kanaka Maoli and their allies are entering their fifth week of demonstrations to prevent construction of the Thirty Meter Telescope in Hawaii. They’re determined to stop further desecration of the sacred Mauna Kea. https://t.co/gX2028k063 #HonorTribes #DefendTheSacred
