Sacred Mauna Kea Hui head facilitator Kamahana Kealoha is interviewed by the BBC London World Update.
“There are plans to build a large telescope on the top of Hawaii’s tallest mountain, Mauna Kea. The telescope would be the second largest in the world, measuring 30 meters across. Scientists say it is crucial to understanding the universe as the spot is well located with clear skies and can see large parts of both the northern and southern skies. But the mountain is a sacred site in Hawaiian culture, and some Hawaiians oppose the project and say that there are already 13 telescopes on Mauana Kea. Kamahana Kealoha is one of the people leading the protests.”
