Kapu Aloha = Non-Violence [Loving the Enemy]

Native Hawaiian struggles to protect Maunakea are deliberately rooted in the protocol of Kapu Aloha, a highly-dignified method of loving outreach & non-violent resistance.

❤️ Kapu Aloha is akin to the satyagraha bravery which helped deflate British colonial domination of India. Please recognize it is difficult to maintain loving respect for people & powers wanting to shove you from your land, to radiate compassion toward continental Americans who hold themselves superior, who ignore native inheritance, fail to respect community traditions, and snub locals as livestock.

Of course, Hawaiians understand most Americans are bred on shock & awe, and that a few enemy beheadings would surely discourage toxic intruders and unwelcome property speculators.

Yet Hawai'i's warriors, following the example of Queen Lili'uokalani, selected the non-violent path of LOVE. ❤️ Aloha ❤️
