James "Kimo" Keali'i Pihana
Kupuna Kimo Pihana joins us to explore cosmology as understood through the Kumulipo, the Hawaiian creation story, and addresses astronomy as a continuing cultural practice. Looking at the Hawaiian genealogy, he illustrates the rich history of Hawaiians as astronomers. Now retired, Uncle Kimo was one of the original Mauna Kea Rangers. A life long practitioner of Hawaiian tradition, he discusses proper protocol, humbleness and reverence when coming to this place. It is our honor to have him back on the mountain.
