#LeoLahui: Mauna Kea & The Thirty Meter Telescope Project

Lāhela Nihipali with Kaipo Kekona at Mauna Kea

In celebration of H.M. Queen Liliuokalani’s birthday, we are launching our new community series: Leo Lahui. Each person who contributed to this particular Leo Lahui recorded two separate videos – one video for each question. The two questions were ‘How does being a Kiai impact your daily life?’ and ‘Why are you a Mauna Kea Kiai?’. See our full Indices of Interviews below.

Leo Lahui is a way for all of our people to share their Voice on any given topic. We invite all of our people to record their own Leo Lahui using the format below:

  1. One Video, One Person, One Question.
  2. State your name and where you are from.
  3. Answer the Leo Lahui question provided
  4. We recommend that your Leo Lahui be about 2-5 minutes long and be filmed in landscape/horizontal mode.
  5. Tag your video with #LeoLahui, #HawaiianPress and @kamamaluula then SHARE!

Community representation is incredibly important, that is why we welcome people sharing their Leo Lahui videos to the relevant comment sections of our social media.
