Lā 187: #maunamedia update for this #maunamonday. I left the mauna at 7pm last night, and came back up at 7am to find our queen missing along with our hale kukiaimauna sign and a pop up tent. I could understand the tent but our queen, no. Talked to the Rangers and they informed me that DOCARE took it in the middle of the night. They are now doing random sweeps from 10p-4a. It's still not clear how a few signs would be a "safety hazard" for the mauna because of the rain and flooding. There are far more "safety hazards" on the mauna that we can list including us as people who belong in the waokanaka but Lā K. Ea went down to the DLNR office and talked to them. Watch NNN for his mana'o on what happened. I understand this is not directly related to TMT but it is related to our kuanaʻike Hawaiʻi and the symbolism of our queen being taken down by the state.
