#51. 'Mauna Kea / Powehi' 51" x 46" Tutuvi prints and Hawaiian cloth

I made this during the blocking and preventing of a telescope (TMT) to be built on Mauna Kea, Hawaii. I considered naming it for the 2nd choice placement on Spain's Canary Islands. 'Gran Canaria / Black Hole'. But no, this is Mauna Kea. Ironically wild fires play out on the Canary Island, while emotional fires play out in Hawaii.

What would Queen Liliuokalani do? Her islands were stolen in 1893. This is very much a part of the protest.

#50. 'Powehi / Rainbow' 84" x 68" Made of hawaiian and western materials. Started 4/2019 - Finished 7/2019. Read links to find out more.

'Kumulipo', a Hawaiian origin chant.

"The current of time when the earth turned hot around
The current of time when the firmament turned counter
The current of time when the sun stood beshadowed
To illuminate the moon
The time of the night of the Pleiades
The ocean-floor slime is what gave origin to earth
The origin of the dark was dark
The origin of the night was night
The deep darkness, the deep darkness
The darkness of the day, the darkness of the night
Night only indeed!..."

Copied from 'Chanting the Universe' by John Charlot, 1983.
