MANA follows in the history of Aloha ‘Āina in Hawaiʻi, and in the tradition of peoples throughout the world who struggle for liberation, freedom, and justice. We value kū’ē (resistance); kūkulu (creating alternatives); people power; collectivity; community; honesty and integrity; and fundamental human dignity. We agree that an Aloha ʻĀina must be ”guided by great feelings of love.”
MANA is a group of activists, academics, artists, practitioners, students and community members, unified by a set of values established in the MANA platform. As part of your consideration in joining the movement, we ask that you carefully read and reflect upon the MANA Platform of Unity that lays out an anti-oppression framework for Hawaiian Independence. Registration will put you on MANA's email list (used conservatively), put you in contact with MANA's members and allies, and keep you informed of MANA events and actions.
