As of March 15, 2020 Movement Research facilities are closed for in-person events due to "New York State on PAUSE" executive order. A re-opening date has yet to be determined.

Mountains Connect Us is an immersive Hawaiian experience that transports you to the navel of the Earth. Mauna Kea, "White Mountain", and the realm of the beginning of beginnings. In the spirit of Makahiki season, "the harvest", we share with you the excellence of our cultural traditions (oli, hula, lei) here in Mannahatta. Hāloa ka hale o kealoha. The house with love reaches far. Our movement invites you to stand in kapu aloha, "non-violence", with kia`i, "protectors", around the world. A global resistance calling for the reconciliation of the illegal transfers of Native Hawaiian lands while preserving the planet's resources.
