Fighting to reclaim Makua Valley: on this week's Making Contact

by Larry Geller

This week's program on the Radio Project's Making Contact:

Paradise Lost: Military Training in Makua Valley
January 23, 2008

Native Hawaiian and Making Contact intern Samson Reiny reports on what happens when the military takes over historically sacred land and on how people are fighting back to reclaim this once pristine area.


Momi Kamahele, Makua Makahiki cultural advisor; David Henkin, Earth Justice attorney; Kyle Kajihiro, Makua Makahiki member; Fred Dodge, Malama Makua spokesman; Summer Nemeth, English teacher and demilitarization activist.

The program is available as a podcast from their website. I'm going to listen on my walk to the State Capitol this morning.
