We went as part of a new non-profit organization named “Life is Sacred.” The group was created by Catholics and is comprised of native and indigenous people from America and beyond. My family joined as representatives of native Hawaiians.
It was truly amazing to see the groups from every corner of the United States, and especially tens (if not hundreds) of thousands of young people standing in defense of life. Our group marched through the streets of D.C. dressed in our traditional garb, sounding our native instruments, and chanting the ancient chants of our peoples that tell the story of our ancient and lasting commitment of viewing life as sacred from conception until natural death.

Here is a video of my daughter, Mariah, chanting while she marched with the Native Americans.
