Uncle Harry

Harry Kunihi Mitchell loved to talk. Fortunately for all of us, he shared his mana`o everywhere and with everyone. A cultural and spiritual guide to the fledgling Protect Kaho`olawe `Ohana in the 1970’s, he is remembered as a songwriter, musician and kalo grower, who lost his own son to the cause of stopping the U.S. military bombing of Kaho`olawe. This month’s featured video presents Uncle Harry speaking at a 1982 tribute to that son, Kimo Mitchell, and George Helm, five years after they were lost at sea.
