Storyboard Text

  • Hi Gandalf! Have you heard about the issue in Hawaii concerning Mauna Kea? It's crazy
  • Yes, Rachel, I have. It is so clear how important that land is to the native Hawaiians.
  • Can you tell me more about the importance of Mauna Kea?
  • Of course! Please come in and I will tell you all I know.
  • Wow! I had no idea how sacred the volcano is.
  • Mauna Kea is where many divine beings live. The summit is believed to be a temple of the Supreme Being. It is also known as the meeting place of Papa and Wakea.
  • Why is the government allowing so many telescopes to be built on such sacred land?
  • However, since the telescopes do not prohibit anyone from practicing their religion, they are technically allowed to be there.
  • Well, what you are suggesting is that the telescopes create an undue burden.
  • That doesn't seem fair. The native Hawaiians have proven how sacred Mauna Kea is to them. The government should protect all sacred land equally!
  • You are quite right, my dear. Building the TMT does not stop people from worshiping, but it does occupy a lot of important land.
  • Thank you so much for informing me about this important issue, Gandalf.
  • You are very welcome. I hope you use this knowledge to spread awareness all around Middle Earth.
