Aloha my PNW Lāhui (people), we just got word that Tribal Members from Tulalip, Washington will be joining us at morning protocol on Saturday, August 3 and standing with us in solidarity to protect our #SacredLands
Please arrive at 10:00am at the Haggen parking lot (See photo below for more information and look for the crowd with the flags and signs, we can't be missed).
Tulalip will open protocol with drumming and a blessing, followed by a pule (prayer), oli (chant), and mele (song) before we converge together on the overpass. Tulalip TV will be covering our gathering, so if you do NOT want to be on television, please stay clear of the cameras.
Also, a tent will be set up on the rez side of the overpass for food and water, so please consider contributing so everyone has a full 'opu (belly) and remaining hydrated. The weather looks promising thus far with a high 75', but bring your layers and sunscreen just in case.
KING 5 KOMO News KIRO 7 News Q13 FOX The Seattle Times has also been notified of our rally. The more awareness we have on what is happening to our sacred grounds, the more pressure we place on the authorities who can STOP the desecration of our lands.
I Ku Mau Mau (stand together)!!
If you need more information, please reach out to Gerry Ebalaroza or her cousin Absyde-Ann Kaiulani Dacoscos or Kaui Auwae.
Mahalo Piha and we look forward to standing with you on Saturday in support of preserving our Sacred Lands. Kū Kiaʻi Mauna!!! #KapuAloha #AlohaAina #ProtectMaunaKea
