For The Love of The Mauna, Part 2
This is part two in our series For the Love of the Mauna which shares the story of Native Hawaiians’ effort to protect Mauna Kea. The first episode gave us the background and story of the beginning of the TMT fight and the cultural foundations of Mauna Kea. This segment focuses on the resistance camp at Pu’u huluhulu which was established during the summer of 2019 on the Mauna. This ended up garnering attention because it was the largest mobilization of law enforcement in the history of Hawaii to fight those trying to stop the massive destructive construction project in the middle of conservation land. We highlight the kupuna line, the complex relationship with the police, the role of the University of Hawaii, and Native peoples’ relationship with science. “The 30 meter telescope thought that they were going to erect a telescope, but really, they awoke a nation.” - Mehana Kihoi Central in the series are kapuna and scholar Dr. Auntie Noe Noe Wong-Wilson, scholar, poet, and activist; Jamaica Osorio, activist, educator, and cultural practitioner; and Lanakila Mangauil who discuss the health of the natural environment and its connection to fundamental rights as Indigenous peoples.  +++ *All My Relations is Listener Supported *Become a Patron *Follow* Dr. Noe Noe Wong Wilson, Executive Director of The LĀLĀKEA FOUNDATION Jamaica Osorio on Instagram Lanakila Mangauil on Instagram All My Relations on Instagram *Support* https://www.puuhuluhulu.com/ https://www.protectmaunakea.net/donate Episode artwork drawn by  Ciara Sana.  Videography by Upthink Labs Music by Masa Kobayashi Fiscal Sponsorship by Speak Out!

32. If Hindsight Is 2020, Why Are We Still Not Saved?
In this episode, Kimberlé is joined by a panel of veteran UTB guests to unpack the learnings from a year of pandemic, political revolution, and purported racial reckoning. and to help envision a path forward as our nation reels in the aftermath of a white supremacist insurrection. As the panelists contextualize the events of January 6th through a critical race theory lens, they discuss how a national history of appeasing white supremacist interests and denial of racial terror have laid the groundwork for our present reality. Furthermore, they explore what the new Biden administration must consider in order to truly address white supremacist terror at its root. With:
