The words kapu aloha have emerged in the ongoing conflict over Mauna Kea. The term refers to a non-violent approach in Hawaiian activism. This code of conduct has its roots in the peaceful steps taken by Hawaiʻi’s last monarch, Queen Liliʻuokalani.

At this past weekend’s celebration marketing Queen Liliʻuokalani’s birthday on the grounds of ʻIolani Palace, people remembered the overthrow and how the queen back in 1893 decided against taking up arms and fighting the forces seeking to take over her nation.

“She knew that violence wasnʻt the answer because we were up against countries that have the means to violence,” said Healani Sonoda-Pale, a reference to the military forces aligned against the monarchy.
