The way Jason Momoa describes Hawaii's beloved dormant volcano, Mauna Kea, makes you understand why it's considered sacred according to CNN. 

CNN detailed the actor's thoughts on the peaceful protests taking place on Mauna Kea along with the YouTube video 'We are Mauna Kea' created by his creative production company On The Roam. 

Film Director for On The Roam, Etienne Aurelius was born and raised on O'ahu shared the video on his Instagram with his thoughts saying, "this project cut deep into my heart, I don't think I have ever cried more in my life making a project than this one!!!"

"It's kind of the umbilical cord to earth," the actor tells CNN. "You know, if you think about the Hawaiian islands, that's the biggest mountain in the world, right? All the way up. So Mauna Kea is the most sacred. They call it the belly button, too. That's like our birth place. You can imagine that in the middle of the ocean. That's how our islands were formed. So how can that not be sacred?"
