KŪKULU: The Pillars of Mauna a Wākea presents H OʻO K U P U: Unifying the world one offering at a time

Gifting is an act of aloha that binds; an exchange of the heart, a demonstration of solidarity, growing alliances, and a sprouting of new and long-lasting relationships.   
In honor of the life force of Mauna A Wākea and Thousands of HOʻOKUPU offered in ceremony on the Ala Hulu Kūpuna, we lovingly present a small collection of offerings from Hawaiʻi, the Tribes of Native America & Canada, Moananuiākea, Asia, and Europe.  The magic is that we became unified for the sake of a mountain one HOʻOKUPU at a time.

Thresholds: A solo exhibition by Bob Danhieux Douglas

The makai gallery features monoprints based on traditional Mokuhanga (Japanese woodblock) style printing. The images all deal with different forms of isolation, and present Douglas’s interpretation of his experiences camping out at the Mauna Kea access road during the TMT protests, and his subsequent isolation during pandemic lockdown.
