Guardian of the Mountain: Ku Kia’i Mauna
Ku Kia’i Mauna: We are the mountain. These words resonate throughout Hawaii as the people stand up fiercely to protect the natural environment from encroaching development and its accompanying destruction. The goddess Pele rages. Holding nothing back, she chants the ancient protection chants and breathes fire from the integrity of her belly. Love for the people and land ignites passion. Anger fuels action. Action brings change and renews life.
