To some Native Hawaiians, the state’s tallest mountain Mauna represents the realm of the Earth’s creator and the birthplace of the Hawaiian people. But pro-business groups interested in boosting Hawaii’s tech industry want the to house what would be the largest telescope in the Northern Hemisphere.

Native Hawaiian activists are currently blocking the mountain’s access road and have indefinitely halted the Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT) project that was scheduled to begin construction month. Protesters say their current struggle is yet another chapter in a long history of racial discrimination and the denial of indigenous rights by the state.
