And it’s a wrap! Offshore host Jessica Terrell talks about what it was like reporting for this season.
When we started out our journey to Mauna Kea for Offshore, we were looking at this story as a clash of science versus culture. What we’ve discovered is a whole lot more complex than that. But where does that leave things?
Is there room on Mauna Kea for both the observatories and Native Hawaiian practitioners? Does one side have to push the other out, or is there room to coexist?
And if what we’re seeing across the country at places like Oak Flat and Standing Rock is a clash between western values and indigenous values, is there a way for us to find a better balance in the future?
