While TMT has earned the legal right to proceed with its construction on Maunakea, we would all be wise to respect the mana and sentiments of the people who have assembled en masse to block TMT from moving forward. This spiritual force of Native Hawaiian unity for ancestral teachings, cultural respect, social justice and to permanently halt the TMT project is a peaceful and well-executed plan.
