in short: i really fucking love the water, i will do anything and everything for her always, and if you tell me it’s impossible to make a difference on this planet, i will Moana my way into getting the ocean to create tidal waves of change to show you nothing is impossible. we are all made of water. we all depend on water. you like to eat? WATER. you like to sweat? WATER. you like to play, WATER. you like to orgasm? WATER. you like to use your phone to check instagram to read this message? WATER. everything we do is in thanks to 💧. . . . okay, HERE is the pertinent info: . . . a few weeks ago i had the honor of joining @greenpeaceusa with my friend @emoryhall on an expedition in the Sargasso Sea (basically, the bermuda triangle ). the high seas compose 71% of the worlds oceans, and yet they are ALL ungoverened and unprotected. the reality of deep sea mining, unregulated fishing, rising water temperatures, and PLASTIC POLLUTION is crippling for the future of not only our planet, but for the survival of human beings. the oceans provide us roughly 50% of the oxygen we breathe, and they store carbon deep down in their cavernous bellies. it is CRUCIAL that the UN creates a treaty to protect at LEAST 30% of the worlds seas by 2030. @instagram has been nothing short of incredible for supporting my passion for this mission. thank you @greenpeaceusa for the year long sail you are doing to gather data and research to present to the UN, thank you @emoryhall for your one of a kind eye, and thank you mama earth, for somehow being so goddamn patient with us.

Posted @withrepost • @thequeercrowdslo Célia Pataxó is an activist from the Pataxó tribe whose village was first threatened (and lost their main water and food source ) due to the Brumadinho dam collapse last year, and now has been destroyed by the fires. As fires continue to burn in the Amazon, keep in mind that fires are not a part of the natural ecosystem cycle there like they are in the climates of the western United States. Instead they are caused by industrial mining and agriculture occurring in these areas, and by purposeful burning of rainforest lands to clear cut them for agriculture. Indigenous communities have lived within these lands and protected them for generations. Now, however, right wing president Jair Bolsonaro is reducing protections for the rainforest and taking lands away from indigenous control to instead be used for commercial exploitation. Donate to and support the indigenous leaders and organizations that are on the ground working to protect the Amazon, a vital resource for providing oxygen to the entire world. 🇧🇷🌈❤️🌎 @amazonwatch @amazonfrontlines @guajajarasonia @coiabamazonia @greenpeacebrasil #prayforamazonia #todospelaamazonia

A. L. O. H. A. thank you auntie pua. thank you jason. thank you to my whole ohana over in hawai’i. i love you. #Repost @prideofgypsies ・・・ To all my friends and fans please watch our NEW episode link in bio THIS IS MY HEART Mahalo @cnn for helping me spread the awareness. There is a growing movement in Hawai’i that cuts to the core of native rights to protect sacred lands and ensure the continuation of cultural practices. Mauna Kea was selected for the construction of the massive Thirty Meter Telescope being imposed by the University of California and CalTech along with the countries of Canada, China, Japan, and India. Despite another suitable location beyond Hawai’i, the TMT project is pushing forward to build 18 stories high and bore several stories into the ground over the island’s natural water aquifers in a conservation district. Hawaiians and their supporters have taken a ceremonial peaceful stance in solidarity with people around the world, not as an opposition to science, but as protectors of their sacred and revered mountain. Hawaiian people are truly children of the land, our history and language are infused in it. Our survival depends on what it can provide, and we look to our environment for spiritual guidance, it is part of our ancestral identity. To desecrate Mauna Kea is to do the same to the people. This is why we stand and say, “We are Mauna Kea!” Aloha J

#Repost @puacase ・・・ Aloha kakou, we have spent 19 days at the base of Mauna Kea in cars and tents in the middle of a lava field. We have in that time created a community who will stand for the Mauna as long as it takes. To all our relatives especially those whom we have stood with on moku honu and around the world, know that should you find yourself here we will welcome you. There are many who come daily from Hawaii and beyond and the support from around the world is so important. To all the nieces and nephews who have reached out, again we haven’t made a call out but if you feel the need to come, follow your ❤️ please keep praying for us, posting messages, organizing actions in kapu aloha, and staying connected in every way that you can. If you plan to come, let me know so I can prepare you for lava field living! Me Ke aloha nui I ka Piko o ka mauna.
my sister is so fierce in all them right ways 🙏🙏🙏. ever heard of HAWAI’I ?! i urge you to continue following the beautiful protection happening over there right now. @hawanemusic ・・・ ▲ K I A ‘ I ▲ ⠀ ⠀ “That trauma from having a sacred site built upon is real, and what we are trying to do is to protect the next seven generations from feeling that” - Hāwane Rios⠀ ⠀ We are strong and fierce in our love for our land and people.⠀ ⠀ FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE⠀ ⠀ Press Statement from Pu'uhonua o Pu'uhuluhulu*⠀ ⠀ Puʻuhuluhulu, July 30, 2019. ⠀ ⠀ Today we celebrate a victory that reaffirms our resolve. Governor Ige has admitted that he underestimated our strength, unity, and broad public support. Our numbers continue to grow and his ability to oppose his own people is becoming less and less justifiable. Ige’s rescinding of the emergency proclamation illustrates how he can no longer claim that we are threatening public safety. We are the public. ⠀ ⠀ We also celebrate Governor Ige’s adjusted timing. It’s a stall tactic. Governor Ige has been forced to lean on this tactic because he understands we are not stepping away from this struggle. It is a struggle that communities across Hawaiʻi have faced for far too long—our government agencies who are supposed to protect what our society values are instead skirting the law and acting on behalf of private corporate interests. ⠀ ⠀ Our movement of aloha ‘āina has ignited not just Hawaiians but people worldwide who want to protect Hawaiʻi from self-serving, big-business. ⠀ ⠀ We value Maunakea, our culture, and our unity. Protecting them is a struggle we are ready to sustain for as long as it takes.⠀ Mahalo nui to @erinsitt for creating this powerful video. Mauli ola. ⠀ #protectmaunakea #wearemaunakea
SO STOKED to have been a part of @applepodcasts #unstyledpodcast with @christenebarberich christene and i met a few years ago at @websummit in lisbon. as fate would have it, we were on a panel together in front of thousands of people the morning after our president was elected. with great chaos can come great intimacy, and there was an instant trust i felt with this woman. i’ve been amazed to witness what christene has accomplished with @refinery29 over the years, and finally having the chance to catch up with her again in a setting very different from our first was so special. truly. this woman’s curiosity and affinity for depth was so refreshing, and her eternal grace held space for me to feel safe in sharing a piece of my heart with her. podcasts are very hit or miss for me, but i find solace and breath in hers. i think it’s because she’s not afraid to GO THERE and ask the questions most of us find fear in. i respect you tremendously @christenebarberich thank you for being a trailblazer for us ... for showing us we can do things differently even when all odds say we can’t. thank you for your wicked style, your softness, your intelligence, and your unwavering heart. it was an honor to do this show with you, and even more so, to get to know you a tiny bit better through the process. #unstyledpodcast ON APPLE PODCASTS NOW
• MAUNA KEA • a lot of us know about standing rock, and what happened here in 2016 with the #NoDAPL movement. In hawaii at the moment, a similar movement is happening ... native hawaiians are standing up for the protection of their sacred mountain. i haven’t been there yet, so i asked @ladonnabrave1 to speak about it. i encourage you all to follow these individuals to learn more about how you can support them. @malialia @puacase @hawanemusic @seedingsovereignty
back on the res and feeling home again. a lot of people often wonder what ever happened to #standingrock after the media buzz and trending hashtags disappeared. my brothers @chiefeye @c2bears and many others joined together to create INDIGENIZED ENERGY. together with @givepowerfoundation , they’ve created the LARGEST solar farm in north dakota ... they are making historical moves, and it’s breathtaking to witness. can you think of anything better ?!?! fossil fuels were the reason tens of thousands of people came to standing rock in 2016... and now, they’re leading the way with SUSTAINABLE AND RENEWABLE energy sources. talk about changing a narrative and switching a paradigm. thank you #standingrock for being the groundbreaking leaders you are for the rest of us to learn from, grow beside, and create with.
pretty much sums up our entire relationship. i’ll let you guess who is who. @isidora
