Kapu Aloha: The Aloha ʻĀina Movement in Hawaiʻi [This event has been postponed to a later date]
with Luana Busby-Neff and Pua Case
Kapu Aloha is a Hawaiian practice kin to the Sanskrit ahimsa. Peaceful non-violence becomes ‘reverence for aloha.’ Luana Busby-Neff and Pua Case will discuss the discipline of loving and how this works within the Aloha ʻĀina movement that includes 35 years of resistance and protection. Come listen to two wahine koa (women warriors) talk about their own lessons within the Protect Kahoʻolawe movement and Kū Kiaʻi Mauna (to stand firm in our protection of Mauna Kea) movement that helped bring forth the Kapu Aloha to a world audience.
