Mauna Kea Women's Tee
The sale of this tee shirt was inspired by the ongoing protest on the island of Hawai'i for the mountain known as Mauna Kea. The Kia'i or protectors have been steadily blocking the Thirty Meter Telescope or TMT, from beginning construction in the hopes of protecting that sacred mountain. 100% of the proceeds will go to support the Kia'i efforts. The design itself was created by Maile Miyake in the likeness of her grandmother who is of Hawaiian decent. The art is meant to remind us that we must treat our sacred places as we would treat our elders, with reverence and respect. The subtle colors emulate the beauty Mauna Kea and remind us although the mountain is strong it is also delicate and WE MUST PROTECT THE MAUNA!!
