It is a privilege to live on the beautiful islands of Hawaiʻi Nei. The islands host a warm and welcoming blend of cultures, rooted in the kind hearted spirit of aloha. However, current events on Hawaiʻi Island have unearthed a different sense of aloha known as kapu aloha. Kapu aloha reminds us to maintain pride and civility even during trying times. It is in the spirit of kapu aloha, that a demonstration will be held by a people whose culture has been strengthened peacefully through adversity, but who are currently facing a test of their resiliency. The overwhelming outpouring of pride, strength, and peace has been commendable and is deserving of our utmost respect.
This Sunday, while on the road to Hāna, we will witness a rally in support of KU KIAʻI MAUNA. Those participating in this event will circle Mauna Haleakalā, in a show of solidarity with the protectors of sacred lands, and these supporters will be stopping at various places throughout the day. This dissention is a potential turning point in the pathway to a broader national movement that would recognize Mauna Kea and other culturally significant sites, preserving their integrity and preventing development. The Valley Isle Excursions ʻohana aims to provide visitors with a meaningful experience on our islands, leading them to hold these natural and cultural treasures as close to their hearts as we do. We want to share this epic time with our visitor.
So, in the spirit of kapu aloha, join us in showing your respect for the Hawaiian Islands – their land and their people. We welcome you to participate in this historical day in any way you see fit.
Protection of lands, buildings, and monuments across the world is an inherent desire of all humanity, across every culture. We thrive as communities because these physical reminders, like the sacred summits of our mountains, (including Mauna Kea), connect us to our purpose. We depend on dramatic scenes, beautiful landscapes, quiet areas and inaccessible places for a connection to our ancestors, ourselves, each other and Akua (God), for without these there would be no culture.
Our mission has always been to be there for our communities (our ohana at large) in times of need, to help protect that which we hold dear. We supported the call and on Monday, July 22nd we did not be run any tours. In doing so, our scheduled operations was suspended for the day so that we can take time to reflect, bring awareness to this cause… and hopefully, with aloha, contribute to a solution.
We are a small community that stands united, with growing strength, making it known the world over, that we must do better. The concepts of “respect and protect” the aina (land) and the sacred spots of our culture will always unite us for the better of all. How could we not wholeheartedly support that?
Like so many throughout the islands, our employees and our communities depend on visitors to support their loved ones, and we are grateful to them for their dedication. So, on Monday, July 22nd, 2019, all Valley Isle Excursions’ employees. scheduled to work, were still paid. We believe no one should have to choose between caring for our families and protecting our history and land, which we also hold close to our hearts.
We look forward to an outcome where our sacred places, be it coastal areas or mountain tops, are respected and protected while we as a community grow and the culture we love is preserved and strengthened. #respectmaunakea #protectmaunakea #wearemaunakea
