Storyboard Text

  • After participating in a successful occupation of Kahoʻolawe in 1976, I, George Helm, was moved to become a more serious fighter for the island.
  • I lobbied for the protection of the island as a member of the Protect Kahoʻolawe ʻOhana...
  • The truth is, there is man and there is environment. One does not supercede the other. The breath in man is the breath of Papa...
  • ...Man is merely the caretaker of the land that maintains his life and nourishes his soul...
  • ...While I trained to become the hero that Hawaiʻi deserved
  • I vowed to protect the land at all costs, and became ka Meʻe o ka ʻĀina.
  • ...Therefore, the ʻāina is sacred. The church of life is not in a building, it is the open sky, the surrounding ocean, the beautiful soil...
  • On a fateful day in 1977, I went to Kahoʻolawe to rescue two of my fellow freedom fighters, but they had already been picked up...
  • Walter, Richie, just hold on my braddahs!
  • ...After my return trip to Maui went awry, I disappeared and was never seen again...
  • But I will always be here, along with the countless others who have sacrificed everything in the name of Aloha ʻĀina.
  • KŪʻE!
