Our Work


Mauna Kea Anaina Hou (MKAH) has litigated many cases protecting Mauna Kea in the past 25 years, many of which have been successful in stopping development on the sacred summits of this mountain.


MKAH has done numerous talks and articles educating the Lāhui on the importance of Mauna Kea, why it is sacred, and why this mountain needs to be protected.


We have taken numerous positions over the past 2 1/2 decades on issues that arise around Mauna Kea that include development, conservation, and water.
